About

Hello, and welcome to my blog! 🙂 My name is Emma, and basically this blog is all about my huge interest in food, fitness and life!

Food 
I. Love. Food.

I am Golumm. "My...precioussss (food)"

I believe that anything in moderation is fine, and that food should be enjoyed! After a long period of deprivation (see the My Story page for more info), I have learnt that food isn’t ‘good‘ or ‘bad‘ because of its calorific content, and that eating is a very positive thing, not something that you should feel guilty about! Normally, I try to eat healthfully and intuitively, and now and again I love to indulge, especially in sweet things! 😛

Home baked is the way to go!

 Fitness

Exercising is fun! I run on average about 3 -4 times a week and take a yoga class and a BodyPump class (trying to build my non-existent muscles!) once a week. I usually have a rest day at least once a week, or whenever I feel like it! I love being active generally- gotta love those endorphins! 😀Life“The healthiest response to life is joy.” ~ Deepak ChopraI’m doing what I love, and loving what I do! Whether that’s running races and raising money for charity…

Cancer Research Run 10k- raised over £300

…or going to fancy dress parties…

I loved it aged 6...

...and still love it today!

…I try to find enjoyment in the little things every day! And how can this cute little face not brighten your day?

My beloved Miniature Schnauzer, Buddy!

More about me:

  • I live in a town on the outskirts of London, where it is generally cold and wet. But living a 20 minute train journey from the capital is great!
  • One of my main hobbies is music. I am a classical musician (a viola player) and I play in orchestras and a quartet and go on tour to various countries at least once a year. I also get paid to play at weddings, parties, etc which is great! 😀
  • Baking is one of my favourite hobbies! My collection of recipe books is pretty impressive already, and it’s constantly growing!
  • My favourite foods/addictions include: dark chocolate, oats, mango, cookie dough/cake batter (and I’m not ashamed of it! :P), dried fruit, nut butters, aubergine, courgette, tofu, raisins (seriously addicted!), and spinach (GREEN MONSTERS!).
  • General dislikes: tea, tiramisu, spiders and Coke.
  • I am mostly vegan (see my Q&A for details), and have done for years (pre-blogging!) and love it. Dark chocolate is (usually) vegan, so I’m okay! 😉
  • Oh, and I’m warning you now. I think I’m cool…

    Yo.

    …but I’m actually slightly insane…

    What normal looks like

    …and run like it’s my job!

    And I will love you forever for reading, especially if you are a tad obssessed with yummy food too…

    Thank you for reading! You all are inspirations to me! Comments makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside, so don’t be shy! 😀
