I love nothing more than being a sweaty betty or feeling like I can barely walk after a tough session. This is my reality. I know my face goes so weird, like almost twitches when I lift a really heavy barbell or when I am power cleaning 60kg. This is my reality.
As I reached the frozen foods section, Parkinson's decided to unexpectedly throw me a curve ball, and I suddenly came to a grinding halt and froze. Rather appropriately, or ironic - depending on how you look at it, I was rooted to the spot next to the frozen vegetables.
Looking at the success of fad diet books alone, we might convince ourselves we need to lose weight- and... fast! It's always Fast! Here, I'd like to use some of the findings in cognitive neuroscience and the neurobiology of eating behavior to address, specifically, why fad diets don't work.
I wrote this blog, because so many women have been asking me if I can help them to change from someone who is eternally seeking to be "thin", trying every fad diet, wasting their lives looking for the next "skinny" fix, and are miserable in the meantime. They want to know how they can lose that mindset and get healthy and strong instead...
Sobriety for the sake of it has a very short shelf life. So knock it on the head. Today. Delete your blog you were busy writing on the brave struggle you are having today on your staring-at-the-four-walls sobriety and write one about learning to play the banjo instead.
if you are coeliac, gluten-intolerant and want to treat your family, I really recommend these bars which are sticky, delicious and will go down well with any age!
I urge you to check your labels for mineral oil - which may be called liquid paraffin, pariffinum liquidum or liquid petroleum. Whether it's on the label of your sun protection or any other of your personal care products, it is preventing toxins from escaping and nutrients being absorbed through your skin.
On April 24th the Apple Watch officially goes on sale. I believe it is a game-changer for the wearables market and also for the nation's health. Let me explain why.
Increasing NHS funding by £3billion, £8billion, £Xbillion - lovely. But where is it going to be spent? Will it be a repeat of the winter pressures funding where hardly any actually got to struggling A&E departments and GP surgeries? Another round of reorganisation will soak the whole lot up.
Once someone has exhausted the over-the-counter options, it can be a difficult decision to go to the doctor to ask for something different. It shouldn't be. Pain deserves to be managed as well as any other symptom of a condition, but there seems to be far more judgement intrinsically linked.
Set yourself realistic goals and visualise where you want to get to. If you set unrealistic expectations, you are setting yourself up for failure. You want a fitness routine that you can maintain for the long term, so ensure you outline achievable objectives.
It isn't just mental illness that we hide in our 'I am fines' it is also our physical illness, our money worries, family problems, loss and loneliness-the list is endless. The majority of us bottle it up in this fast-paced society.
I'm upset that you got to me; but you did. I can't say I remember encountering anyone who has ever made me feel like my condition was an inconvenience to their life. And who has such a right? Yet you somehow managed it, and very quickly too.
Of course being a mother is a fantastic achievement, and carrying and raising nine children is no mean feat. But, at this moment, the fact that she is a mother-of-nine is almost completely irrelevant, while her contribution to women's rowing, her position as a CEO of an investment company and all round kick-ass woman is what BBC Sport should really be being championed.
Now that we can take our work anywhere - we do. But typically, we don't take our ergonomic accessories with us. It's understandable - who really wants to lug a laptop stand, detachable keyboard and mouse to Starbucks?
Introducing free social care at the end of life is a golden opportunity to improve people with cancer's last experiences, while simultaneously easing the strain on the NHS.
