On Tuesday I mentioned that I've been challenged to get going with a new midlife health and fitness plan. I have committed to do it until January and today I'm going to tell you more about it. Before I do, I'm just going to cover the reasons why I'm doing it with a quick recap. I have hit an absolute exercise trough. Long term readers know about the car accident I had in December 2014. It wasn't a serious one [...]

Hello and Happy New Year! I know I'm supposed to be full of perky new year's resolutions but I tend to see September as more of a time to start afresh than January. For me the decorations are down, the middle son has already gone back to school and this morning, I faced the scales which led me to a moment of self loathing because I've put on half a stone. However, when I look back at the fantastic Christmas we've had, I [...]

Some of you have mentioned that you love September and the feeling of new beginnings it brings and I do agree. I think however old you are you always have that feeling of starting afresh. So, with that in mind, I've decided it's time for [...]

What Body Shape Am I? Defining yourself after 40.

When I started wanting to change how I dressed, I started shopping like I’d won a trolley dash. I’d hit the weight I wanted to get to, I’d taken lots of my old clothes to a dress agency to be sold and I truly believed that everything I saw and liked would now look great on me. Because we live in a retail desert, I did huge orders from Boden, White Company, Zara, Hobbs, Jigsaw and ASOS expecting to have [...]

How to dress for your body shape after 40

If you're anything like me, you will be reluctantly accepting that you'll never be the shape that (a) you wanted to be and (b) you were sure you would be again if you lost those last few pounds. With each child I've had, my body has changed because it has been stretched beyond recognition with each successive pregnancy. Not only that but my hips have widened through giving birth, the skin on my abdomen is looser and even my feet [...]
