What you see is what you get.

As a complete beginner at blogging (my 7 year old daughter knows more than I do), who knows what you will get. But, I’m hoping it will be interesting. It’s going to be for me anyway.

Sitting in my local coffee shop with a friend, she is giving me a crash course in social media!😆 I want to share my story of taking control of every aspect of my life after coasting along for some time now. Journaling what I do will help me stay on track. Tomorrow is my 43rd birthday and I won’t let another escape me without making the most of it! Life is ours to take or waste. So, don’t waste another day. I know I won’t.

Here goes nothing!

My life has been all over the place for a while now and it’s time for me to take the reins.


I am a single mum, with the best ex husband and father of my children, so no complaints there. I also run a health club and I do not practice what I preach.

After my divorce, I did throw myself into training but was soon struck down with a backache which persisted for over a year that stopped me from training. Yes, disappointing, but the truly disappointing bit was to find out it was cancer. Kidney cancer to be exact.

I was very lucky to get a cancer that was forgiving. Physically forgiving that is and treatable. Although this cancer was physically forgiving, it was mentally devastating, scary and heartbreaking.

There’s more to that heartbreak, but will have to share another time. Actually, there’s a lot more to this story, but it will all come out in the wash.

Yes, it’s all…just my luck.

It has been just over a year since my treatment, I’m feeling good and so very grateful to be cancer free, but I am only just getting my head around the diagnosis.

So here I am, starting a blog of my new journey. My journey from good to GREAT! I wanted to invite you into my life to watch my progress. Mentally and physically. Exciting, right?!! Well, it’s gonna be!!

Things are always more fun when your friends are with you! So come on!

So as they say…watch this space!
