food for the soul (and belly!)

Apologies for being so quiet for the last couple of months; life has been a whirlwind of moving house, weekend project deployments, catching up with family that are moving overseas, friends birthday celebrations, weekend adventures, starting bootcamp, eating sugar & grains (and not feeling bad about it, well maybe a little bad!) and generally justContinue reading “food for the soul (and belly!)”

tightening the reins

Remember my New Years Resolution? Well it’s now March and I’m finding general life & eating fairly easy with the paleo way, however, I have noticed a few too many paleo treats creeping in and portion sizes creeping up, so I’m reading and listening to podcasts to realign myself.

Exercise guru MichelleContinue reading “gotta get up | week of health & fitness”
