Bullet Journal Layout, March 2018

March 2018 Bujo layout BLOG

My journaling has evolved much over the past few years since I discovered the Bullet Journal system. I love that this method is so flexible and streamline. The fact that my BuJo can be whatever I want it to be and if I change my mind or my style from one week to the next, it's perfectly fine and it still works!

At the start of this year I ordered a beautiful new journal, my goal was to start this year in style, but chronic illness is quite unpredictable and I ended up not really getting started on anything until now. I hope you will enjoy this little tour through this month's layout in my new Bujo - I love it and cannot wait to use it daily!

Update: Adapting, Practicing, Realising, Celebrating, Inviting

Feb 2018 Chronic Voice Link-up BLOG

This month has been quite productive! I can't believe it's almost gone already. I'm once again taking part in this thought-provoking monthly link-up with Sheryl from A Chronic Voice. I love the prompts she comes up with each month - they really force me to consider things I might not otherwise think about and perhaps, in a way, that helps to keep me focused and accountable too. This month's prompts are:

  1. Adapting - to intentional rest and fasting
  2. Practicing - watercolour blending
  3. Realising - it's hard to stick to a schedule
  4. Celebrating - a year since my parents moved to the UK
  5. Inviting - other chronic illness warriors to share their story

Paleo-Ketogenic Breakfast and Snack Ideas

Paleo-keto Breakfast and Snacks BLOG

Some of the most common questions I get asked when people are considering the ketogenic diet is "What can I have for breakfast?" and "Which snacks can I eat?".

I have compiled a list of breakfast and snack ideas which I have enjoyed since I made my transition to Keto at the start of 2017. I hope these will inspire you.

You might notice, though, that after a while on this diet you will no longer be hungry in the morning and will be able to start fasting overnight like I do. Keto has certainly cured my munchies, I no longer need to eat every couple of hours like I used to and fast daily for 14 to 16 hours.

Transitioning to a Paleo-ketogenic Diet

Transitioning to paleo-ketogenic diet BLOG

As some of you might know, I have recently started reading Dr. Sarah Myhill's book, Diagnosis and Treatment of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Myalgic Encephalitis. It's a huge book, with over 400 pages, and includes so much detail about how the body works and what she believes is happening to sufferers of ME/CFS. I'm so excited about this!
