It's been a few years since I started my journey, and as with any journey, it's had its ups and its downs.

The latest down? Finals.

In May of this year I sit my final examinations and (hopefully!) graduate from Oxford University with a degree in Classical Archaeology and Ancient History. For a long while I let the stress run away with me, and I've been eating take-out or not eating at all, I've stopped working out and stopped thinking about my health.

Then I realised that there's something more important than a grade - my health and wellbeing! So I'm trying to pull back and balance out my life, and make sure that I don't sacrifice all my progress and success for a number.


***Carpe Diem. Seize the day. You can do whatever you want to do and be whoever you want to me. The future waits for no man. Today is your day. Shine. Do one thing you'll be proud of every day, so you can look back and honestly say that you don't regret a single day. After all, no one ever said on their death bed "I wish I'd spent more time in the office."***

Fitness Minutes: 4,724

My Goals:
I'll know I've achieved something when I can wear a bikini to the beach without embarrassment - at the moment I wear a tankini, keep wrapped in my towel or spend all my time in the sea where no one can see me!


My Program:
Gym three times a week. I row for 15 minutes and try and beat my distance, then do C25K and some strength training. I'm doing the 30DS and I also strength train at home.
In terms of food, I'm not cutting anything out of my diet - I'm just trying to find a balance that will let me live life healthily and enjoy it at the same time.
