It's MAY and that means one thing: Lyme Disease Awareness month. 

It is going to be a busy one for sure and it would be great for you all to help & get involved. 

I haven't blogged for a while as I have been out in Alicante but we are back & straight into a manic schedule. 


Today I am so excited to be going to the Preston Book Club's meet up, to answer any questions they have on my book. I am so thankful that the group chose to read & enjoyed my book. I can't explain how much that means to me. I can't wait to meet with you all and discuss my book. I also have an exciting interview with Andrea for her podcast channel: The Voice Of Hope and if you haven't check out her channel yet - DO because Andrea is so amazing, so calming and talks about a lot of amazing subjects. So I am so looking forward to sitting and talking to her about Lyme Disease awareness today. 


Tomorrow I am heading back to the BBC Radio Lancashire's studio to discuss all things Lyme, fundraisers and lighting up Blackpool tower with Gilly. So, please listen in at 3.30pm TOMORROW. 



Friday keep your eyes peeled for more great podcast interviews and chats coming your way, through the month of May. I am excited to be talking to my two favourite girls Andrea & Angie about chronic illness & body confidence on Friday. Such a touchy and huge subject that I think could get emotional but is really needed to be spoken about. Thank you girls for agreeing to this interview and I can't wait to have you BOTH back on my channel: CHRONIC BUT ICONIC


I will also be publishing my episode answering the Instagram question: 'How does my swimming mindset help be battle Lyme.' In the coming days so watch out for that too and thank you fo asking such a fab question. It does get emotional and upsetting in some parts but it wouln't have been real and raw if I had of held back or edited the emotional parts. 

Missed any of my latest podcast interviews? Head on over to Spotify, Apple Podcasts & Anchor and search for Chronic But Iconic, there you will find ALL my episodes where you can listen in and get involved.

Feeling sluggish and rubbish when you have woken up? Get boosting up on bananas the more the better - they will help settle your stomach, boosting digestion, they are a mood enhancer, they will give you the energy you need and keep you full. Buy my book for banana receipe ideas.
Wake up every morning and ATLEAST have one glass of lemon water before doing anything else! Ideally try to drink a litre of water. The lemon wakes up your digestive system ready for the day and has great cleansing properties.
Check your dairy and meat intake - dairy can sit in your system for up to seven days unable to digest properly. Meaning other foods also get neglected and nurtients aren't absorbed properly and you feel extremely bloated. Go and smell your food bin, your stomach will be in that state. Rotting foods in your belly - hmm nice.
Bananas, Rice, Potatoes, Leafy Greens, Corn, Beans, Lentils etc PACK THEM IN GO MAD.
NEVER COUNT CALORIES - NEVER RESTRICT!! These restriction 'starvation' diets who tell you to only eat 500 calories a day then have a treat day - where you binge out and eat WAY too much, is simply messing up your metabolism and on your binge days yours body stores all the fat meaning you gain weight because it knows it is going to go back into starvation mode and needs to hold onto every little thing it can. HELLO WEIGHT GAIN. 

Life is too short not to live it to the full, making yourself happy.
