Just an average blog about an average girl exploring and writing about various aspects life and its ups and downs. You will discover that I’m slightly obsessed with weightlifting, into healthy living and being financially frugal. This blog is simply a place for me to self indulgent and write about anything I like, but it will include things I get up to in and around Manchester, my travels, fitness, books I’ve read and various product reviews.
I sporadically post lifting videos on instagram so if you’re looking for fitness inspirations, head over there and follow me 🙂
Having recently committed to competing as a 53kg lifter, I successfully attempted an over bodyweight snatch for the first time ever, weighing in at 52.3kg and snatching 54kg. Over the moon! My technique needs a lot of refinement, and perfecting my lifts is a bit of an obsession of mine.
Recently taken up playing piano, and my dream is to practice purposefully for 10,000 hours (or thereabouts) and see where that leads me. It’s my new ‘thing’, but having played the guitar for many years, I felt a sense of guilt of devoting the majority of my time to this new instrument, but I just feel drawn to the piano than guitar these days.
In my spare time, I’ll mostly like be found at the gym lifting heavy things, taking part in Olympic weightlifting competitions around the UK and dossing around Manchester. When I’m not doing those things, I work as project manager over at The Hub, in Cheetham Hill.
