Maybe not all based on nutrition and fitness, but I like to think of some of these articles and links as nutrition for the mind and soul. 1. For all those literature buffs out there (buzzfeed.com) 2. So true for today’s fast paced world: staying present in your relationship (thechalkboardmag.com) 3. Myths of high protein diets; we can agree to disagree on this one (nytimes.com) 4. 10 YouTube channels to nerd out on (careergirldaily.com) 5. What to do when you’re having an off day (thesundaychapter.com)

It may not be cold season, but this week I recently felt a sore throat coming on. Wondering what ways I could tackle it head on, I asked a few of my nutrition-minded friends what they recommended to stop a cold in its tracks, and below were some of their recommendations. These may be more holistic approaches, but you can’t deny that their suggestions contain some great ingredients to boost an ailing immune system.
Just some pictures of when I wasn’t running. Mostly of food.
After running my first marathon, I was extremely proud of my results. Especially considering that only three runs took place between January and March 8th.
This weekend I took part in my first ever half-marathon in Paris in honour of my big brother. And I didn’t realise just how emotional running in for someone close to your heart would really be. It only really hit me a week before the run and it started to scare me a little. After seeing so many donations pour (1,030Euros!!) and all of the words of encouragement and love, I would catch my eyes brimming with tears.
One thing I have learned about living in London is that there are endless possibilities, which is why fitness and nutrition has become such an integral part of my life. And if you are like me, constantly looking for a new way to sweat and push yourself, chances are, ClassPass is going to be perfect for you.
This past week has been all about food. And what’s a week with food if a Michelin Star restaurant isn’t involved? As a late Valentines Day lunch, my boyfriend and I chose Gordon Ramsey’s Maze restaurant and it certainly lived up to its Michelin Star.
