Trying to be a Fit Parent

This is my blog, it is about my trials and tribulations being a working Mum of a boy and a girl, and also my enthusiasm about fitness and health. Most of my blogs are about this but sometimes I will post about other things.
My main interests at the moment are parenting, fitness, digital marketing and general news, however if you want to find out more on my more corporately correct thoughts on digital marketing then take a look at my company website. This blog is more for my opinions, musings on my life and the odd rant.

neglect on the brain

Emotional Neglect

No one is perfect, we can’t always be there 100% for our children 24/7 especially when you have more than one child however emotional neglect comes from when a child feels no love or support from a guardian or people who are supposed to be caring from them.

cake and eat it

Carbs are not the enemy

I am a complete advocate of losing fat by removing carbs from my diet, it works great in line with a specific diet and excercise regime. However carbs are not the enemy we don’t need to go over board with carb hate

Family movie night

Tips for a Successful Family Movie Night

Movie Night in front of the TV is a great way to make Saturday nights in a bit more exciting. When you have kids, Saturday nights out turn into Saturday nights in, but as your kids get older you want to replicate the weekend feeling by doing something special


As a Mum trying to be a good parent I use this blog to organise my thoughts, fears, ideas, and document those little things only I care about to do with my children. I am a big fan of other parenting blogs and take inspiration from these Mums who I feel are doing a great job. This blog will be quite child indulgent as my chilren are the biggest and most important part of my life.

Health and Fitness

I am no expert but I would consider myself a fitness enthusiast, I use exercise to help me fight depression which I have suffered from since I was a teenager. I enjoy different work outs and routines and try to eat healthily although I enjoy food and wine so certainly not a true dedicated fitness fanatic :)
