You’ve probably heard all about diabetes and how unpredictable it can be, but I bet you didn’t know how it has a chance to impact on your own life. First, let’s have a look at diabetes and what it is. There are two types: Type 1 is an autoimmune disease and usually is something that you are born with. Type 1 is commonly diagnosed in childhood and isn’t something you have much control over developing.

We all need some fun activities to do every now and then. Being a full-time Mum and taking care of the kids can be stressful, which is why a great hobby is a must-have.

We all know the importance of keeping healthy, yet some of us need a little bit more motivation to do it than others, mainly our partners! For me it’s the other way around as Hubby is brilliant at keeping fit and he has to motivate me. Quite often! Sometimes it can be a bit annoying that they can’t do anything to look after their weight, or are just making sure that they are looking after themselves a little bit more than they actually are. But, rather than spending hours upon hours begging them, or guilting them into exercise, this isn’t going to result in them getting up off the couch. So what are the best ways to do it?
Tiredness after exercise is to be expected. There’s even an argument that if you’re not tired after exercise, you’re probably not exercising hard enough.

Of course, with all that energy being expended, feeling tired in the aftermath of a workout is surely normal?
With the pressures of life and work, it can be easy to let your fitness and healthy eating regime slip, especially in the winter months. Your body and mind are important.

Aside from the inevitable pandemonium of raising an infant, many women are left wondering what has happened to their body in the wake of pregnancy. Indeed, for many of us the prospect of returning to our pre-pregnancy weight and appearance is an unattainable pipe dream. The battle against your baby weight, however, is one that you can and will win! Unfortunately, it will be won neither by a quick fix nor a conveniently packaged solution.
From making yourself look presentable to having time for that second morning coffee, having kids can often leave you with less spare time than you’d like. While we all know how important it is to keep fit, many parents struggle with fitting time for a workout into their busy schedule.

Today, it’s so easy to get caught up in technology that it has become a part of our lifestyle. It is no surprise that our kids get caught up in it as well. But rewind to the time when technology was not the norm, and that the best adventures we had were when we were out in the sun, picking our food from the garden or straight from the farm.
