I have had a busy but fun month, letting my hair down and doing things that make me happy and feed my wellbeing right. Here’s a vlog I made last weekend during a camping trip, spent outdoors in the fresh air, soaking in the vitamin D.
August 18-21st, my friends and I went to V Festival and had an amazing weekend. Here’s my vlog of the weekend, I show the accessibility of the festival and how disabled people can enjoy the awesome experience of going to a festival.
As you know I eat clean, gluten free, dairy free and refined sugar-free. I sometimes cheat, if I’m at a restaurant with no healthy alternatives. But as I’m learning to listen to my body, I instantly feel the effects of going off track, this keeps me motivated to be pretty consistent.
When the waiter asks at a restaurant ‘could I tempt you with the dessert menu?’ my reply will normally be ‘no, I’m ok thanks’ and the next words that usually follow from the table are ‘go on you’re allowed a treat’
Why do we deserve a treat? Isn’t it just like a bribe? Do something good and you’ll get a treat?
First blog post. Well what better timing than on my birthday….ok few days after but close enough.
It was my 32nd birthday. 32 years of being alive. Worth celebrating, right?
I was diagnosed with Friedreich’s ataxia at the age of 16, a life-limiting condition. Instead of seeing this as a negative, I have and continue to live life to the fullest and try not to take it for granted. Every birthday since I have always made plans to celebrate.
