When did ‘being healthy’ stop ‘being enough’?

I am a fit and healthy 25 year old woman. Standing at 5 foot 3 inches tall, I wear a size 10 (sometimes an 8) and exercise regularly. I eat an extremely balanced diet, never depriving my body of nutrients while having treats in moderation.

I am living a healthy and happy life.

Jumping for (Birthday) Joy: My First Indoor Trampolining Experience

RWL HIIT Harder – A Full & Honest Review

To say this journey hasn’t come with its fair share of highs and lows would be a lie, but I have thoroughly enjoyed it and for that I am happy for the  last 3 months. It’s taken me slightly longer than the allotted 12 weeks due to travelling a lot with work, holidays, and gym equipment ‘incidences’ that we all agreed never to speak of again, didn’t we? Yes. Excellent. Moving on…
