Summer is here, it’s boiling hot and I’ve decided to join a gym & get even sweatier.
I haven’t been to the gym since I was at uni but, as with most things in my life, all it took was a friend saying ‘let’s start going to the gym together!’ for me to sign on up.

Since I moved into the flat, I’ve been trying to get my life a tad more organised and a lot more healthy.

April 9th 2018 marked 10 years since I was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 14.
When I think about it, it seems like yesterday and about 100 years ago at the same time!

So, let’s take it back to the very beginning…

I’ve just handed in the heart monitor that I had on for 24 hours and I am so thankful to be free of it! It was quite small – not as heavy as the one I had on a few years ago – but rather than clipping on to my waistband, it was in a little bag that went over my shoulder.
