On Sunday, I returned from a week of having been away where I was getting edumacated at my university’s other campus (520km from here). And I did get edumacated (anyone up for a debate about the ethics of psychology and professional practice?), but I also got a variety of other things: 5+ coffees a day; spinach and cheese pastries for lunch; enough chocolate to give 50 dogs toxic shock; and take-outs for dinner every night (of the fried and noodled variety). Throw in a decent amount of alcohol, and I really don’t know how I can claim to have any right to be writing a health blog.

My poor liver.


So this week is about getting myself on the bandwagon again – green smoothies, carrot juices, and nutritious dinners are on the menu; and limiting carbs, sugar, coffee and alcohol is the goal (with the exception of a flat warming this weekend 😉 ).

And with any luck, my liver will be feeling a little more like this very soon:


Hope you all have a great week! : )



  1. Destroying livers. So fun, so terrible. Reboots are always excellent. I think it’s great that you are a “healthy living blogger,” because most of us attempting to be “healthy” are also fallible humans that like to have a good time too. So seeing ways to bounce back after those times is more helpful than seeing perfection that most of us will never attain. (and thank goodness, right?).

    • Thank you Raechel : ) (also, it’s so cool to have you back in the blogosphere!). I agree, “being healthy” should be seen as a windy, sometimes bumpy journey rather than a perfect, pass/fail sort of thing – it makes life more enjoyable too!

    • Hey E!! Thanks for stopping by – I’ve been a terrible blogger/blog friend and have been v absent, but im totes going to head over your way soon – put the (virtual) kettle on : ) x ps yes, I did draw those silly livers – glad you like ’em : P
