Diet Chef Review...

Diets, diets, diets, do diets really work?Can you stick to a diet or would you give into temptation at the first hurdle? (Well me)  Many times Ive tried for only a day and then broke it! What would a diet have to offer you to make you stick to them?

Blueberries,Banana And Granola Breakfast Smoothie : Janathon day 6...

Today is long run day, having to do 12 miles on my own was itself a challenge. I nearly didn't do it, none of my friends were running today, so I was going to do 6 miles this morning and 6 later. Hmm like with a dinner to cook and find time before getting the 2 youngest children bathed and to bed early for the first day back to school tomorrow, no I knew that plan wouldn't work!!
