• If I wasn’t coeliac

    Tuesday, September 20, 2016 Permalink

    I had a conversation with a colleague recently about the latest research into coeliac disease.

    “What if they found a cure?” she asked.

    Now I know it wouldn’t be like finding a cure for cancer or Alzheimers, but the idea is exciting for we coeliacs nonetheless.

  • Wordless Wednesday: The hippy hippy shake

    Wednesday, June 29, 2016 Permalink

    It feels like yonks since I particpated in a Wordless Wednesday post… and in all honesty I’m here today because last night I started a Facebook rant which became lengthy so I decided to mix it up and add it onto the blog. (Also attempting to make up for my lack of blogging of late.)

    My running friends are growing. And I don’t mean in stature. I mean in size. Well, I don’t mean in size INDIVIDUALLY… I just mean there seem to be more of them. Runners, that is.

    More and more are commencing ‘learn to run’ programs, while others embark on 10km runs, and then there’s the odd marathoner or two.

    Besides the fact that I’m fat and unfit I’ve never been a runner. Even when fitter and healthier. Indeed, even when anorexic and exercise-obsessed.

  • I didn’t buy a zoo. But I joined a gym

    Friday, May 20, 2016 Permalink

    Exactly three years and six months and twenty days after making my seachange I’ve joined a gym.

    I know, I know… you’re worried I’ve rushed into things, but – believe it or not – I have sussed out this very same gym on a number of occasions. 

  • Quiet desperation

    Wednesday, May 11, 2016 Permalink

    I’ve alluded to it and occasionally been pretty blunt about it, but I no longer write a lot (if at all) about my weight (etc) here.

    However… I’m really struggling and feeling quite desperate. And wondering if this is the best place to share that.

  • So damn unpretty

    I’m again joining Kirsty for her ‘I must confess’ challenge and today’s question is…. Do you feel beautiful? Why, or why not?

    Eek. In my current headspace this could be a very dangerous topic and as I’m also vaguely (and occasionally) doing an alphabet challenge in April, it seems fitting that today’s letter is U. And we all know U is for UGLY.
