Eat like a pro with Beko – #eatlikeapro #ad

As busy, working mums to a young growing boy, who always seems to be hungry, no matter how much we feed him, I constantly worry about the amount of ‘Healthy’ foods M is eating throughout the day. That is why we have teamed up with Beko and the ‘Eat Like a Pro’ campaign to encourage our children to enjoy eating healthy foods in a fun and enjoyable way. Over the years we have been very open and honest about how we have struggled with M’s eating from a very young age, and as…continue reading →
The compliment question

The compliment question

Over the past year I have been documenting my weight loss journey over on my personal Instagram account @claranotclara. I started purely so I could keep a record of how well I’d progressed and how I’m changing as a person. Weight loss has not only changed my physical appearance but my whole outlook on life. I have found an inner confidence, which I never really knew existed. I also wanted to show people that it CAN be done and hopefully inspire others to take that leap and change their lives for the better.…continue reading →
Always the chubby girl

Always the chubby girl

Since I was a child I have always struggled with my weight,always the chubby girl, always the one struggling to the back of the clothes rack, praying they had my size, which they almost never did. Of course I didn’t walk around completely naked but I could never wear what I actually wanted to and when they did have my size, the image staring back at me in the mirror did not meet expectations. I was a thin girl stuck inside an obese body. At my heaviest I was over 18 stone, unfortunately…continue reading →

Healthy Graze snacks and being mindful

This year Clara and I had a great base to continue our healthy eating and fitness plan we set ourselves at the end of last year. Neither of us had a huge gain over Christmas which meant we were able to pretty much continue getting fit and healthy from where we kind of relaxed a bit over Christmas. The fab folks we've been working with at Graze very kindly sent us some low calorie snacks to help us continue our mission to reduce our waists. Thanks to Thinking Slimmer we are both eating…continue reading →

Healthy Eating Routine

Healthy Eating Routine

As a family, we think it is important to establish a healthy eating routine. Our Monkey can be very fussy with food, so it's important for him to know what to expect from meal times. It is incredibly important to make sure children eat fruit and vegetables on a daily basis, but it can be extremely challenging at times. We think that offering fresh vegetables whilst weaning encourages them to be more drawn towards healthy foods, whether you are practicing Baby Led weaning or using purées. Work towards a healthy eating routine. Make…continue reading →
