5 Things that Lent has Taught Me

So I did it, I gave up takeaways for lent! You can read more about why I did that here, but in this post I’m going to be reflecting on it, what it’s done for me, and what I’ve learnt from doing it! Continue reading “5 Things that Lent has Taught Me”

5 Tips to Help with Anxiety

I’ve suffered from anxiety and panic attacks for as long as I’ve been diagnosed with ME/CFS, but before that it wasn’t really something that I had experienced.

The reason I’m writing this post now is because this has been playing on my mind a lot this week. For Uni, I have two presentations that I have to do in a few weeks; one, a 15 minute presentation to do on my own, and the other a 10 minute presentation in pairs.

I can already feel myself getting anxious about these, but not only that, also about the fact that it would not be impossible for me to have a panic attack before, during or after the presentation, which is causing me to feel more anxious and it just goes on. The more anxious I feel, the more likely it is that I will have a panic attack, and because I’m feeling anxious about having the panic attack, it’s increasing the chances that I will have one – does that make sense?

Pancake Day & Lent

Snakes and Ladders

Earlier this week I posted a transformation picture on my new health Instagram and it really boosted my motivation and self-esteem to carry on and persevere with my weight loss journey.

This is something I’ve battled with for over 2 years now, and I’m not going to lie, there are days, weeks, even months where I just lose motivation completely. I get sick and tired of trying and trying and achieving nothing, that I get very close to giving up completely. Continue reading “Snakes and Ladders”

Meal of the Month || January

Hey guys! This is the first time I’m doing this kind of post, but I really want to make this a monthly thing for a couple of reasons. I want to try and keep accountable for my own healthy eating, and I think by posting my healthy meal of the month, that helps me do that, because as my housemate said to me “If you can’t blog it, don’t eat it”! Another reason is because all of these meals will be meals I’ve made and put on my new Instagram page (@hellohealthyamy) and the meal of the month will be the one with the most likes that most!
