I'm so excited! This week it was confirmed that I have a place in the British 10K London run on 9th July and I'll be running to raise money for the Scoliosis Campaign Fund.

One step forwards, two steps back…

In the main, I really try to be positive on this blog and inspire others. I also want to be honest and reflect what it's really like living with scoliosis.

Veganuary: why I went vegan for a month

Veganuary: why I went vegan for a month

This January, as part of my New Years Resolution, I took part in Veganuary. For those of you who have not heard of Veganuary, it's basically going vegan for the month of January.

I feel like I try and eat healthily and work out BECAUSE I have scoliosis. It's kind of my way of...Read More
