Health & Fitness Magazine Photoshoot

When I posted my behind-the-scenes magazine shoot pictures with Health & Fitness Magazine on FB, they got quite a lot of love. In hindsight this post might have been a little dramatic. I think I was tired – no surprise there then 😉 Click the link below to see how my day went. There’s also a video diary too.

Curing Raynaud’s Phenomenon

11/05/17 Oh my goodness. I have been meaning to write this post for months. Perhaps even years. I don’t think I have ever grabbed my laptop quicker than I just did to write this post. I was mindlessly (embarrassed to say that) scrolling though Facebook and saw this (picture below). I recognised it instantly – Raynaud’s phenomenon.   I am no doctor, neither am I a nutritionist … Continue reading Curing Raynaud’s Phenomenon

It Finally Happened!!!

20/04/17 The (Not So) Secret Life of a Fundraiser…… After my last post, I figured it was only fair to deliver you a slightly more upbeat running commentary of my fundraising antics. Yesterday I secured a major sponsor! I am delighted to announce that eMoov will be the Lead Sponsor for my 1,800 mile rowing challenge around Great Britain! It hasn’t really sunk it yet. Have … Continue reading It Finally Happened!!!

The Secret Life of a Fundraiser

Well….. that’s step 1 done…… At least I got out of bed after 36 hours. In that time I didn’t open the curtains (despite it being a wonderful sunny Good Friday), I didn’t eat, I barely drank anything, cried most of the time, threw in some sleep for good measure, didn’t shower or brush my teeth. I’m still in the same clothes I was wearing 3 days … Continue reading The Secret Life of a Fundraiser

Radio Interview on Phoenix FM

28/03/17 Here’s round 2 of me delving into my life on the radio. This one didn’t feel like I was being thrown in at the deep end as much as the last. The guys from Phoenix FM were celebrating their 10th birthday and hosting the show on the road, which was fascinating to see. A few bits of technology whizzed their voices and music across to 40,000 people in Essex … Continue reading Radio Interview on Phoenix FM

Radio Interview with BBC Essex

21/03/17 Well that was exciting!  I just got interviewed on The Ronnie Barbour Show on BBC Essex Radio. After getting to grips with doing interviews on the Tough Girl podcast, I didn’t feel as nervous as I usually do and arrived all prepared with cue cards in case I got tongue tied. In turns out that Ronnie didn’t even ask much about my rowing challenge!  He had … Continue reading Radio Interview with BBC Essex


After a very successful February Challenge, me and the #sugarfreefeb gang decided to continue with another monthly challenge: The 30 Day Cold Shower Challenge! (click the link on the text above the read where the idea came from). I’d already decided and started this challenge mid- late February after listening to Scott Carney’s What Doesn’t Kill Us audiobook. Amazingly, as I was about to suggest … Continue reading MARCH CHALLENGE

Bushcraft Skills Day with The IOL

13/02/17 In another impromptu moment, I was invited to attend a bushcraft and survival skills course at Grafham Water in Cambridgeshire.  Without hesitation, I of course said yes as this is totally up my street. The 6.5 hour course, hosted by the Institute for Outdoor Learning cost £45, (for IOL members, £90 for non-members) and covered the following: Confident fire lighting Using natural materials for survival and shelter … Continue reading Bushcraft Skills Day with The IOL
