Life: Five ways to cheer yourself up without food

I don’t know about you, but when I’m feeling a little bit down and glum, my go-to is to reach for the biscuit tin and gorge myself on delicious goodies.

Which, if I’m honest, does little for my mood but just feels like it should be the right solution.... 
(I’ve written a bit about emotional eating in this blog post FYI.)

So today, I thought I’d write a blog post that will serve as a reminder for me, and maybe possibly help you the next time you’re feeling glum and looking for food to be the answer.

Food: Easy Slow Cooker Enchiladas

What's this, a new blog post that's actually about food? It's been a while since one of these graced the old blog. But alas, this past weekend when I was doing my meal prep for the week (something I think is really important), I found a quick and easy way to make enchiladas and just had to share.

I know, I'm so good to you. You're welcome.

It kind of originated from this blog post, however, I've simplified it down, bunged it in the slow cooker for the most part and turned it into an easy to make a mid-week meal. (Or something to fill your freezer with).

Musings: How you know your head's in the weight loss game

You know those times when you're feeling all fired up and ready to totally kick weight loss butt and nothing can touch you, 'cause you my friend, you are pure health.

It's often felt when we first embark on a new plan, or after a bit of time off when you're feeling rubbish to turn things around or even when you look in the mirror, hate how you feel, and then decide enough is enough.

Many of us often call it Monday morning, but regardless, you know what I mean.

Musings: The pains of trying to lose weight when you work in an office

Sure, working in an office is not always on the top of everyone's list, but it's something many of us have to deal with. And whilst it's rarely all fun and games anyway (well, aside from the occasional day here and there) it can often feel 100x worse when you're trying to lose weight.

Life: What are you even doing right now?

Oh hi, remember me? The girl who lost loads of weight, put it all back on and then kind of disappeared? Well, I'd like to think I'm back.

It's pretty obvious this ol' blog here got completely neglected last year. There's many reasons for that. It started with lack of time, which then lead to laziness and then, ultimately, it felt like it was this big task there was to break. However, I've realised recently, I really enjoy writing random nonsense on here. It makes me feel better. So, I'm going to start doing it again.

Musings: Nine thoughts you have when you've lost weight multiple times

In case you're new around these parts, this isn't my first rodeo at the whole weight loss thing we've got going on here. And, now whilst I'm not at my heaviest right now, I'm closer to that end than I am my lowest, oh joy!

Musings: Being honest online

I've recently been reflecting on my weight loss (or lack thereof) and my documentation of it online.

When I first set up my 'Fatty Wants a Biscuit' persona I'd post every last thing that went in my mouth, and because I was so conscious of everything, I wouldn't eat as much and I'd wait only until I was actually hungry.
