To Pump, Or Not To Pump?

To Pump, Or Not To Pump?

I’d like to put it out there immediately that this post has nothing to do with my digestive movements… The insulin pump. An absolutely wondrous example of technological advancement being used for good. They gave me a batch of syringes when I was diagnosed as a back up to my injection pen. We’ve come a […]

Nurture Three Day Juice Cleanse – Nourishment or Nonsense?

Nurture Three Day Juice Cleanse – Nourishment or Nonsense?

I can already see you rolling your eyes. Juices?! As in… no food?! Well, no solids… yes. For three days. It happened, I did it, and it was amazing for my body, my mind and my blood sugars. More detail on that in a bit, but just what exactly would possess a food loving self-confessed […]

London to Brighton – 54 Miles of Madness

London to Brighton – 54 Miles of Madness

My muscles are creaking, my calves are stiff and my head feels a liiiitttle bit fuzzy. 24 hours since I joined the masses and rode 54 miles (+5 +6 but who’s counting…) for British Heart Foundation’s flagship London to Brighton ride. And my body knew about it! It’s Friday now, and I can walk again, […]

Savasana In The Sky – Yoga at the top of The Shard

Savasana In The Sky – Yoga at the top of The Shard

Hot yoga, ashtanga yoga, gravity yoga… it’s all happening in the world of the bendy. But how about yoga among the actual clouds? Y’know, up there in the sky? Not possible, you say. Well… it is when you head 68 floors up to the top of Europe’s tallest building for your class. I was invited […]

In A Spin? Review of Psycle London

In A Spin? Review of Psycle London

One dreary and moody not-quite-spring-yet evening as I scurried out of work with my head down in a hurried bid to dash through the Oxford Circus crush and reach my friend on time, I was halted by a glowing beacon of new shop frontage with clean branding and an enticing air of general wellbeing loveliness. Behold, Psycle. […]

Young… or Fit?

Young… or Fit?

Hey lovely guys. Hope this finds you well. You look great, have you been working out? Have you changed your hair? We must do this more, it’s so lovely to catch up… Okay, okay. This is one of those occasions where I need your wise and knowledgeable opinions. Sorry, it’s just take take take over […]

Happy Pancake Day! Clean, Low GI Recipe

Happy Pancake Day! Clean, Low GI Recipe

Ohhhh pancakes. After discussing my deep and complicated love/not so love affair with bread in the last post, along comes pancake day. Flour, flour everywhere… We just cannot get away from the white stuff. This has all appeared just a bit too quickly while I’m still shifting the final remains of the Christmas waistline (yesIknowit’sMarch), and […]

LivLife Bread – The Low Carber’s Dream?

LivLife Bread – The Low Carber’s Dream?

Bread. Mmmmm… Bread. Lovely, fluffy, crunchy, warm, cuddle-in-your-actual-mouth bread. Like many people, diabetic or not, it’s the stuff of my dreams, and of my nightmares. Over the years me and my body have been rebounding through an intense love-hate carbohydrate relationship. The whole reason I started this site four (FOUR!) years ago was because I’d […]

A Life of Excess – Are We Missing The Point?

A Life of Excess – Are We Missing The Point?

2014. 9.45am. London. I’m walking along Oxford Street heading towards work and, much like 99% of the people scurrying alongside me, behind me, in front of me, towards me, away from me; I’m apparently in a rush. I’m actually only in a rush because everyone else is in a rush – the street itself demands […]

New Year, New Chat. Expanding The Site!

New Year, New Chat. Expanding The Site!

2014. Ohhhhhmygaaaad. This is my eighteenth year as a diabetic. I become a diabetic adult this year. Ha. Do I know much more now than I did as a newly diagnosed nine-year-old? Hopefully. Am I still getting it wrong? Definitely. So January is actually almost over, but I’ve been thrown into 2014 headfirst at work, […]
