THE WELLNESS SERIES: contraception

Before I get into this, there are a few things I’d just like to say.  Firstly, I just want to thank everyone who responded to my Instagram poll.  I didn’t want to share this aspect of my life without anyone finding value in it.  Secondly, this post is completely based on my experiences.  It is not backed by scientific evidence, medical degrees or years of training.  If in reading this you realise you’re experiencing what I did, I’m sorry but I don’t have answers for you.  I don’t even have answers for myself.  Lastly, this is not an anti-contraception rant.  If anything, I’m envious of those who can take contraception without any negative side effects.

THE WELLNESS SERIES: supplements

THE WELLNESS SERIES: supplements

FACT: the Earth’s soil isn’t as nutritious as it once was.  What this means is that our vegetables aren’t as nutritious as they once were.  So while you can keep your protein powder to yourself, I’m going to be all over these supplements. Continue reading “THE WELLNESS SERIES: supplements”

THE WELLNESS SERIES: finding motivation

THE WELLNESS SERIES: finding motivation

I have always been interested in health.  However, my motivation now is different to when I was younger.  Having been lucky enough to have never had a weight problem, back then my motivation was based purely on what celebrity I idolised that day.  Now it’s spurred on by something different – and it’s not because I’m now a mum.
