Out and About|Palm Vaults

On my birthday, my sister and I had brunch at Palm Vaults. The café is decorated in a very urban way. You can tell even before entering the café, that you aren’t entering your normal cafés like Costa or Starbucks. You will be surrounded with pastel decor and plants hanging beautifully from the ceiling. Oh and if you are a vegan, you will be spoiled for choice!

To begin, I had a Lavender Latte and toast with tomato, basil and pesto. My sister had a mushroom toastie.

Food Diary


This year so far, I have not been going regularly to the gym. I have been ill and only trained whenever I felt fit enough for it. But it is now time to get back to training properly again.

Even if you are not able to train straight away, the best way to start being healthy is by eating the right food. I try to plan ahead, which makes shopping easier and cheaper.

So to make things easier for you, I have made a Food Diary printable for you!

New Year’s Resolutions 2017


It’s that time of the year again! Like most people, I once again am going to come up with a few resolutions that I will stick to at least until the end of 2017.

This time last year, I did not actually come up with any resolutions. I was not in a state to. I came up with my resolutions for the year of 2016 a bit later on. Next to it you can see how I’m carrying on with the same ones. Except this time, the resolutions are a bit more achievable. Continue reading “New Year’s Resolutions 2017”

I took the picture on the left after I lost about 5kg. Believe it or not, I was even bigger before I even lost the 5kg and it was noticeable.

I do apologise about the picture quality and the dirty mirror :P

My Weight Loss Journey


Today I’m going to talk about something that I’ve never been able to speak about confidently before. Those of you who know me personally, already know that I started my weight loss journey at the beginning of the year, in March to be specific. Have I achieved my goal weight yet? Nope. But one thing that I have come to the realisation about, is that I am most definitely not the only person who struggles with weight loss.

To put it bluntly, I was obese. At the beginning of my journey, I went to the gym about six times per week and ate three times a day. I made sure that half of my plate was filled with veg, quarter of it with protein and the other quarter with carbs. Continue reading “My Weight Loss Journey”

Not feeling well…

Thanks to my little sister, I have been ill for the past few days. My nose is runny and blocked both at the same time. I start freezing randomly even though the heater is on full heat and I am wearing lots of layers and then randomly feel really hot again.

Normally when I am at home, my mum makes me rasam (a thin, very spicy southern indian/ sri lankan soup), which works wonders. Seeing that I am at uni, I had to find alternatives. So I did a bit of research and made a list of food/drink that will help you when you are not feeling well.
