How to Overcome Health & Fitness Hurdles

KP-ing It Simple

When you first decide to make health and fitness a priority in your life, you’re on a roll. You’ve filled your kitchen with healthy food, your activewear is on point, and you feel inspired. You’re ready to go. But then, something happens.

Maybe you get scared. You hit a road bump in nutrition. You find that you’re spending too much money on food or a gym membership. You have to travel out-of-town and leave your routine. Or you get bored. All of these things are barriers that can hold you back from achieving your goals. However, they do not have to stop you.

Bipolar: A Curse!! (BLW Contributor)

Unprecedented Cult


For people who are under the clutches of Bipolar disorder and Schizophrenia – Serious Mental Illness!!!

Identity, two poles apart
Misconstrued and misunderstood like a mirage

Walking with melancholic thoughts in a hostile surround
Reeling with joy carelessly in the limits unbound

Finding nemesis in the thin air of uncertainty
Relinquishing the bottled up illusions in a canopy of dreams

Like puppets of the unprecedented world leave traces of the stalking ghosts
Loneliness, thy fatal companion conjures the violent outboast

Truth, a bizarre lies gallops through a rampant forest
A silhouette untamed, unchallenged controls the mind so torrid

The thunderbolts and the lightning reluctant to cease
Rain of tranquility rescues the mind from the cancerous disease

A world so bright, serene and unruffled, a reality on canvas
Patience and perseverance, the trusted colors to overcome the uncouth past

Boisterous, blasphemous and unabashed the soul quenches a parched mind
Intoxicated with…

One-Pan Dinner: Salmon, Green Beans & Potatoes

1

There are a lot of things I love about spring – flowers, thunderstorms, open windows and… veggies being in season! I love eating green beans raw, and springtime is when they get really good – especially here in Wisconsin. They are on my short list to plant in our garden this year, so I can’t wait to try this recipe again with homegrown beans!

We’re always looking for healthy, easy meals to make during the week and if you love beans and salmon, this is something that I would recommend trying!

What You Need

This recipe was for just Casey and myself – using only one pan, and it was the perfect amount of food + leftover veggies! You could make more, but you’d obviously need more than one pan, which would defeat the purpose. 😉

  • 2 Salmon filets (mine were marinated in lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, crushed basil and…

It’s Never Too Late…..Part 2

What Katy Did Next

Imagine if you could have a tete-a-tete with yourself. I wonder what your 50yr old would tell your 20yr old, because dreams we have in our early days don’t always go according to plan. They can take years to manifest themselves & we can become somebody quite different to the one we envisaged. Judith Chalmers ‘Wish You Were Here.’ Now she had my dream job! I could write about beautiful, exotic locations, try  delicious cuisine from around the world & persuade others to try it too…..surely it couldn’t be that hard? A smart flat in London & a second one in Milan (with a surname like Bellavia I could never go wrong in Italy) & my life would be sorted. If not a travel journalist/presenter, a tennis player was next on my list followed by anything to do with food & finally, something that involved singing. Well things didn’t quite

Nanny or Daycare

Growing with J A X

So you’re going back to work soon, and it is frightening to think about where will your baby be? Who can you trust? And how do you know if they are genuinely good? And what about the money? Day care is can be expensive but will having a nanny be better?

A lot of factors come into play when deciding between the two. If you can afford a nanny, I’d say go for it.  Keep in mind that most nanny will run you about 1700-2300 monthly and you will have to sign a contract with them. Think about it, this is their job, so they would also want some sort of stability.  Having a nanny is very nice, you don’t have to worry about taking your kid to day care before work or picking him up after work; and the nanny can help with light chores around the house as…

Avocado & Cashew Pesto Pasta

beets & booze

IMG_4105.JPG

This pasta makes a quick and delicious midweek dinner. The pesto is very easy to make and goes really well with mushrooms and courgette but you can add any other veg you fancy.

For non-vegans, this pasta would also go really well with prawns.

The best thing about this recipe is that you don’t have to cook the sauce, which normally is the longest process.

It really is very easy and so delicious!
