So guys, it's been a while... I first have a confession to make. I wrote a post towards the end of last year talking all about how I would be doing Sober October. I neglected to fill you in at the end of the month. Regrettably, I failed. Miserably. My saving grace is that I… Continue reading Confession Time: Dry January…
Happy New Year! As I type away for my first blog of the New Year, it is now 8th January 2019. I can't believe a week has passed already! I try to always jot down a few notes prior to writing a blog post. Being the first of the year, as you'd expect, my… Continue reading Calling B*!!%$?t on “New Year, New Me”
How many times have you thought about either (a) trying something new, (b) changing something fundamental about yourself, (c) talking to friends or family about something awkward, upsetting, difficult, etc, but you decide not to because of "The Fear"? Fear of failing at something new Fear of being rejected Fear of making a fool of… Continue reading Fear of Failure
Welcome back to my blog guys! Hopefully, any of you who have read several of my posts, or simply the "About The Hangry Lawyer" page, will know that I am big into health and fitness, including healthy food recipes (not forgetting I love treats too!), and exercising hard. Importantly though, I like trying new things,… Continue reading Are you a Sweaty Betty?
Hola? Como estas? Yo hablo espanol? si, claro! Yes, that's right. I can speak Spanish. I lived in Spain for one year. Why? I lived in Spain, Sevilla, to be precise, during my undergraduate degree. I studied Spanish at the University of Birmingham, and a compulsory part of that was to live in a Spanish-speaking… Continue reading Something About Sevilla

Are you gearing up to think about what Christmas presents you are going to buy, and where you're having your Christmas lunch, or is that the furthest thought from your mind and you want to pull the radio from your car when you hear Christmas adverts?! For me, it’s somewhere in the middle.… Continue reading Sober October
Well, I don't know about you, but I have come to tire of, come the Autumn months, seeing my Instagram feed (shameless plug - follow me @the.hangry.lawyer) swimming in food porn pictures of every different type of warming oats/porridge bowl known to man-kind. Now, don't get me wrong. I love a bowl of oats -… Continue reading Healthy and Hearty Breakfast (or anytime) Pancakes!
DO YOU REMEMBER...? A time where you couldn't possibly define your "relationship" with food? The days as a kid when having meals was a chore? You had to sit down and eat your dinner so that you were allowed to rush off and watch TV or play with your toys? How long it's been since… Continue reading Fitness Journey So Far
When you see this title "Macros and Nutrition", what springs to mind? "Oh no, not another post on macros" "It's too confusing" "I don't understand what any of it means" "They don't know what they're talking about" ^^^ To name a few, right? I'm pretty sure I've had all of these thoughts, plus far more.… Continue reading Macros and Nutrition: I’m Bored Reading About It!
I thought I'd kick off my posts on food, by sharing a little of my background, my likes, my dislikes, my obsessions and my guilty pleasures. I sincerely invite comments and opinions, and would love to receive recommendations that might be applicable. So, a lot of what I eat when out in restaurants, on holiday,… Continue reading Food, Glorious Food!
