If you’re looking for some lunch inspiration, here’s what I made a few days ago. 🥒💫🥬 The pate is mackerel, dill and horseradish and was so quick and easy. I had it alongside a mixed, colourful (lots variety which is good for the gut!) salad and some crackers. 🥗 The pate is made by simply blitzing smoked mackerel (great mood food as full of omega 3s, which help keep your brain healthy), creme fraiche, horseradish, dill and lemon juice. It kept in the fridge for a few days and I had it for lunch again the next day! 💫My tip: Healthy food really can be quick and easy, but it does help to be organised and have the ingredients in. Keep an ongoing list on your fridge and keep topping up as when and when you run out of things. . . . #altrincham #hale #cheshire #southmanchester #wilmslow #manchestermums #northwest #uk #workingmum #stayathomemum #healthjourney #healthyeatingideas #healthyfood #healthyrecipes #healthtips #wellness #nutrition #healthcoach #wellbeing #eatclean #eatwellbewell #healthyeating #healthysnacks #motivation #nutritious #mackerel #healthylifestyle #familyhealth #familyhealthcoach #familyhealthyeating

This lil guy reckons today is the best day of his life! Why? A lil bit of hail! 🤣 I remember days like these back in the 9-5 where we’d all be preying to get snowed out of work or sent home early in case we got snowed in! 🙌 luckily these days I don’t dread working anymore but I do miss the camaraderie and us against the world vibes in a busy office! Fancy joining us to get a lil work banter back in your life? We are meeting on Wednesday 30th at 9.45am at @toastaltrincham tickets include a scrummy breakfast! See you there!

Do you suffer from Emotional Eating? Or stress eating? Its when you eat food to make yourself feel better. A few signs are: - Eating to feel happy. - Can't stop yourself from eating, it's out of control. - You eat even though you are clearly full. - You eat as a response to your emotions. I am an emotional eater, I eat when I'm bored, when my hubby has annoyed me and isn't making an effort to make peace, when I work in the dining room, thinking of what food I can grab. I then get annoyed because I didn't actually enjoy the food I ate. I'm all for eating what you want but you should enjoy it. There are ways to help yourself. 💥 Keeping a food diary of what you eat, how much you eat and how you are feeling when you eat it, it's a great start. 💥 Planning your meals in advance and making sure they are balanced. 💥Drink some water first and give yourself a reality check. Are you REALLY hungry? 💥Don't keep your "go to" food in the house. There is a programme that deals with the mindset when it comes to eating. You can lose weight without exercising, you get taught how to cook healthier meals and how to deal with food related situations. i.e shopping, going to a restaurant etc Drop me a comment or emoji below if you would like some info. Or send me a private message.

Oh hello Blue Monday! People say this is supposed to be the most depressing day of the year ... but it’s actually not raining in Manchester for once (whoop!) and I’ve spent my lunch break setting up my next •Essential Rewards• order - which is basically one of my favorite things to do every month. Full disclosure : It’s my first paycheck after 9 months maternity leave so I’m going for a little splurge - I keep thinking “oh also.. I’ll just add one more thing” 😂 Wanna know what goodies I’m grabbing ... or what in the world I mean when I talk about •Essential Rewards•? Check out my stories (or saved under My goodies highlight, you can see what I’ve gone for in the past) If you’re already on ER what’s in your next order? If not, what’s on your dream wishlist? . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #knowbetterdobetter #holisticwellness #boymom #boymum #younglivinguk #oilymama #daysofsmallthings #ownyourhealth #inbeautyandchaos #wildewellness #seekyourwellness #thelifestylecollective #lifeunscripted #thesincerestoryteller #intentionalliving #ylwildfire #livewildandwell #raisethemwild #naturalskincare #manchestermums #naturalbabycare #educate #empower #sleepingbaby #oilybaby #momlife #cleanerliving #bluemonday #retailtherapy #essentialrewards

SEASONS | . So today is Jan 21st, it's the 3rd Monday in January and it's apparently a horrid day for a lot of people. It's a day when we realise the bit of the winter with the fun stuff in is done and we still have to endure a bit more, perhaps the novelty of hygge is waining and we are left broke, cold and tired. It's also the day I forgot my 3yr olds lunchbox so had to do the morning school run twice 🙈🙈 -never a good start! . . However this morning I passed this tree (four times!). I pass it every day and today with the grey sky behind it and the bare branches it's kind of got its own Blue Monday vibe going on. Then I remembered the conkers it provided in the autumn for us to collect and the huge beautiful leaves that are crunchy and that in 9 months this will happen again and in between there will be beautiful lush greenery for all the enjoy. It's cheesy but this is like life isn't it, gosh the winters are so so hard and I'm sorry if you are there right now but I promise that no winter lasts forever. Spring will come. . . Our own winters don't come with a blue Monday warning so if on ANY day of the year you feel like your winter has lasted a little longer than you thought or you need some help in whatever way, please chat to someone you trust, that might be the start of spring. Please share this too if you found it helpful as others may too . #mentalhealth #bluemonday #hygge #hyggehome #springwillcome #snowdrops #anxiety #depression #pnd #newmum #firsttimemummy #motherhoodunplugged #stronggirlsclub #stockportmums #manchestermums #mummybloggeruk #winter #spring #seasons #nature

No Blue Monday here... . . I'm not having the media tell me that today is a day to feel depressed. I know it's based on psychological research and statistics but I'm not having it. I've always been stubborn like like that 😜 . . At a kid's party yesterday I watched Em dance solidly for almost 2 hours. Full on carefree happy dancing. It was a utter joy to watch and it made me realise the music can bring us so much joy. . . So today stick your favourite soundtrack on and dance, sing and smile. Start your day dancing and I guarantee you will instantly feel a bit better. . . What a your favourite happy song? Your sing in the car song? You grab your hairbrush and pretend you are on x factor song? Let me know, stick on and smile. Even better film it and tag me in. Let's #bringjoyinjanuary on this 'Blue Monday'. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #thisisme #stronggirlsclub #beatthejanuaryblues #bluemonday #behappy #freespiritedchildhood #littleandbrave #throughachildseyes #childrenofig #instablogger #familyblogger #documentlife #manchestermums #justdance #happusongs #spreadhappinesslikehoney #mindfulness #mentalhealth #mumssupportingmums #mumlife #childcareadventures @childcare_adventures

I received a surprise a couple of days ago. 😮 It was an email informing me that I have qualified for an all inclusive trip to a 5 ⭐️ resort in Punta Cana 🏖 just for doing my job!! And I can take a plus 1 for FREE. 😃 I help people achieve their health and fitness goals and lead my team to do the same. All you need is a heart, passion and willingness to learn.

A break from the norm is as good as a holiday. I have been friends with these ladies for over 17 years. I can trust them, be myself (sorry girls) and know they will ONLY give me good advice. I'm truly blessed. We ate delicious food and great places. Drank a bit too much Prosecco, it's was lush, made me a little tipsy. We chose to workout in the hotel on Saturday and Sunday. We ended the weekend by visiting Kensington Palace, well worth a tour. They even convinced me to accept a free trip to the Dominican that I qualified for. I was a bit dazzled, never won a trip that amazing. 🤩

Magical, mindful fairies in the woods today! 🌳🧚‍♀️ An adventure into the woods and into our hearts. We breathed in the forest air, noticed the beauty in un-expected places and listened to the bird song and sound of the trees. Taking time to be in the moment...in nature...with no where to be...listening to our inner selves 💚 Lots of inspiration for artwork next lesson! #foresttherapy #treehuggers #mindfulness #naturelovers #intuition #naturemindfullness #empoweringyoungminds #mentalhealthawareness #creativeminds #mindfulnessinschools #mindfulnessforkids #meditation #manchestermums #homeschool #homeschoolcollective #manchesterschools

Woooo it’s Sunday! Lie in 😊 Said no mother ever 😫 My wake up call was 7am...with a 2am Ilana party. what was yours?
Did you know that when you are held accountable for your goals you are up to 85% more likely to achieve them? ✨ Tell me your top 3 priorities for next week and I'll follow up with you throughout the week to make sure you're on track and give you a motivation boost. ✨ Tell me in the comments, or if you'd prefer, send me a DM.
The balancing act... . . I've had one of those weeks when the balancing act has been tough and instead of trying to do it all I admitted it was all too much. I asked for help and turned Instagram off. . . I often ask the question of why are people here? I'm not talking about the meaning of life but why are you on Instagram? I'm here to document my journey of trying to improve my wellbeing and mental health through monthly challenges. My hope was to inspire people to join me and hopefully help others too. I think I'm achieving my aim (I hope you agree😂) . . Last week Instagram started to feel like a chore and another thing I had to do. I started watching numbers (I know I shouldn't but we all do it, right?) I wondered my numbers were going down and posts were getting less likes than the week before. I felt pressured to spend more time on here to 'improve' engagement (I know, ridiculous right?) I want to respond to everyone, reply and try to promote but why? I love the community on here and feel so inspired when people join in but Instagram isn't my job. I don't get paid to be here. Instagram needs to remain fun. . . So I've made a promise to myself to stop feeling the pressure. If a post only gets 10 likes well then hopefully that means 10 people read it, which at the start I would have been over the moon with. I need to remind myself that over 200 people have joined in with #bringjoyinjanuary that's hopefully 200 lives I've touched in positive way. That's amazing. When my account was cloned so many of you messaged me to ask if you could help or sent a message of support, that's amazing. . . I'm going to ignore the pressure. Stop stressing with the follow/unfollow brigade (you know the ones!) and start focusing on you guys who are part of this wonderful community; you #bringjoyinjanuary 💜 . . Thanks for reading the longest caption ever 😂 do you feel the Instagram pressure too? Xxx . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #beachlife #overwhelmed #balancingact
Lovely day with my ladies London. It's good to have some time out with people who are genuinely good friends. It helps keep your mind refreshed and makes you appreciate what you have or even goals for the future. Still with them till tomorrow. Feeling blessed. ❤💚💙
A cool forgotten photo from New Year's Day. This little Gruffalo is super clingy at the moment, but super loving. Sometimes I want to hide in another room for 10 minutes and just breathe on my own where he can't attach himself to me, but his little voice calling for mama and his warm, genuine, whole-hearted hugs bring me back. It reminds me that I am so very lucky to have such an affectionate little boy who feels safe and loved enough to come to me for all of his needs. I know I should be grabbing every cuddle and kiss instead of trying to avoid them. Mum guilt pops its head out everywhere and I have a feeling it lasts until the day we die! ❤️ #babykov #babyboy #mummylife #motherhood #manchestermums #toddlerdays #letthembelittle #alderleyedge #outdoors #playoutside #playoutdoors #gooutside #explore
Despite our unlimited prosecco filled lunch we decided to squeeze in a an work out as you do. Proud of us, we are looking better as we get older. 💪
My heart is full after meeting this lovely lot today! For the first ever tween yoga and mindfulness workshop at @yogainhale. Lots of fun, movement and reflective thinking as well as a really...long...cosy meditation journeying through the forest 🌳💚 I love working with this age group as they are exploring who they are as young people, yet still have an incredibly free imagination and sense of fun!

Introversion and extroversion. Anxiety and shyness. I’m not an expert on any of these, just another girl learning like you and I’ve tried to do my (book) research on it over the years as I’m both an extrovert and an introvert in equal measure and I’ve found this really tricky to understand. There’s quite a lot of contradictory advice throw about on social media and in general conversation. It’s confusing and doesn’t help. Here are some ideas and facts I’ve picked up from the literature I’ve read that are not contradictory and safe to assume: You can be introverted and not be shy. Introversion is about energy. If you feel refreshed after spending time alone, you’re an introvert. If you feel refreshed after conversation you’re an extrovert. If you’re a bit of both you’re a bit of both. We exist on a spectrum. Both introverts and extroverts can experience anxiety. This isn’t a bad thing per se.It’s advantage is that you are careful with your words as a way of showing sensitivity towards those around you. You CAN teach a child that’s shy to not be shy by just exposing them to what they’re not used to.Adults can do this too.Over time a build up of confidence can help them overcome this learnt fear.This is not the same as making a person into something they’re not. The ‘danger’ is in encouraging/teaching an ‘extrovert ideal’ in schools, workplaces etc. We’re taught by society that being extroverted will make you more successful but introversion gives you another insight into people and the world around you. What we should be teaching/encouraging is that BOTH introversion and extroversion have pros and cons and no single way of being is better than another in the same way that no single personality type is better than another. Final note.Communities are formed through a collective sharing of stories written for the purpose of connection. This means we HAVE to listen to people that think different to us and not feel threatened. There’s no other way. I’m currently obsessed with @blinkist at the moment so i haven’t been active here, sorry 🙇🏽‍♀️For something to watch ‘Beautiful Boy’ ruined my mascara in the cinema so I’d recommend that too. Happy Weekending! ♥
Weekend doesn't have to be your WEAK end. My nutrition today is good. I'm off to London tomorrow for 1 night only, I had intended to take a rest day, till my friend Victoria Goalen suggested we do a workout on Saturday and Sunday. Obviously, I said " Hell Yeah!". 😁 17 years ago, we would have chosen to drink lots, eat and chill. Can you believe we went clubbing in Manchester whilst I was 6 months pregnant? 🤣 Thanks to education we still have a great time but we are aware of how to live a healthy lifestyle. Education is key, my 13 year old was re educated on dehydration today. Something I didn't know about till I was in my 30s. 🤷‍♀️
I’m here all glammed up for a makeup shoot and Nabeel rolls up in his Hogwarts pjs and as usual, steals the show 🤩💖
A lovely afternoon spent at Marlfields Primary School today. The theme was believing in your dreams and in yourself 💚 Following the folklore tale of The Peddlers Dream and meditations focused on the heart centre and the colour of courage PURPLE 💜 I’m indeed glad that I followed my dream of sharing the gift of calm and happiness, with many little (and big) people every day. There is no greater gift than seeing smiling, calm and enthused little faces at the end of a class! #yogainschools #kidsyoga #childrenshealth #mindfulnessinschools #manchestermums #kidsmentalhealth #wellbeing #kidswellbeing #cheshiremums #manchesterschools #mindfulness #mindfulnessmeditation #empoweringyoungminds #growthmindset #schoolworkshops #yogateachers

2009...It's funny to look back to 10 years ago. I didn't think I had changed much at first (apart from the obvious of looking older, more tired and now being blind as a bat) but on reflection bloody hell the last 10 years have changed me so much. . . 2009...The year Matt and I got engaged (finally after being together 9 years), we bought our beautiful little house in the hills, I was bridesmaid at my best friend's wedding (hence the nice #10yearchallenge photo) I worked full time doing the same job but with a different association, but my god the pressure was so much less and I never had to take work home. We would go on holidays abroad, actually have a disposable income and have a good 8plus hours sleep a night. . . The following 10 years saw us get married, go on honeymoon, both Matt and I being made redundant in the same year (We have definitely felt the effects of austerity), less holidays abroad but lots more adventures in the UK. We became parents in 2011 for the first time and then again in 2014. Sleep became a thing of the past. I learned the true meaning of unconditional love and despite the exhaustion becoming mum was the most amazing thing to happen to me. Then two years ago my father-in-law very suddenly passed away and we experienced sadness and grief like we had never encountered before. . . There have been the happiest of times and the saddest of times. The best moments of my life and the worst. I've always been a worrier but becoming a parent resulted in, what is sometimes, crippling anxiety. Money is always tight, work is exhausting and parenting is tough BUT the last 10 years have brought me more joy than probably the rest of my life. . . So to be cheesy and to quote Ronan Keating 😂 'Life is a rollercoaster, you've just got to ride it'. Here's to the next 10 years xx . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #bringjoyinjanuary #preciousmoments #lifewithinfourcorners #thingsIwanttoremember #lifecloseup #mumlife #ourhonestmotherhood #timetoreflect #thisisme #stronggirlsclub #instablogger #familyblogger #documentlife #manchestermums #its #2009to2019 #overwhelmed #parentingtheshitoutoflife #teacherlife #mumandteacher #familytime #bridesmaid

Today is mainly about turning a breech baby 🙃 • This is all I’m going to use to do it...and the star in the line up is MOXIBUSTION 🔥 • Burning the herb ‘mugwort’ on acupuncture point BL67 does a number of things to help turn a baby: • 🌟 releases two pregnancy hormones (placental estrogen and prostaglandins), which both relaxes and stimulates the uterus to increase fetal movement 🌟 strengthens Kidney Qi to encourage correct position • I also advise women to stay away from sugar where possible as it can cause the baby’s head to rise. I had the biggest sweet tooth while pregnant so I know that can be hard...but it’s well worth it to turn the baby ❌🍫🍬🍩❌ • Moxibustion is non-toxic, non-invasive and is a very safe and gentle way to turn a breech baby. The sessions are often very relaxing for mum too 💆🏼‍♀️🙏🏻💫
