With effective planning and a good understanding of what makes up a healthy, balanced vegan diet, you can often get all the vitamins and minerals your body needs to be healthy without having to rely on daily supplements.

On the other hand if you have a busy schedule or find it hard to plan a properly balanced diet you could be missing out on essential nutrients your body needs. Vegans in particular need to ensure they get enough iron, calcium and vitamin B12.

It’s still Juneathon, so I needed to find a class for this week. The only class that fitted in with other stuff this week was circuits and even that wasn’t ideal as I do yoga on a Wednesday morning (yes, I enjoyed it that much I’ve been back every week since, unlike Zumba, which I will never ever ever be doing again) which meant being in the gym for about sixteen hours (okay, two hours).

It put me off home improvements for life.

Getting Back to Running After an Injury

If you’re a keen runner, few things are more frustrating than getting an injury. Sadly, it’s an all-too-common problem for joggers. The feet and knees are particularly vulnerable, and something like a fractured metatarsal or strained ligament can put you out of action for weeks. It’s certainly not ideal when you’re training for a big event (and speaking of big events – sign up here if you don’t want to miss the deadline for event ballots again)!

Dating for the over 40s

Dating in your 40s isn’t the same as dating in your teens or 20s. In some ways it’s a lot easier (who’d want to be a teenager again, going through all that hassle with boys? Aieeeee) and in some ways it’s more difficult. I’m not exactly an expert on dating in my 40s (or in any other decade, to be honest) but here’s a few thoughts on mature dating:
