Could You Give Up Coffee?

Are you addicted to coffee? Many people confess to being addicted to their daily caffeine fix. They drink one or two cups of coffee every single day and to be honest, most people are genuinely shocked when I tell them that I don’t drink coffee.

6 Reasons to Get Up at 6

Okay, so if you’ve ever watched my Instagram stories, then you’ll already know that most days, I am up and out before 7am. I haven’t always been such an early bird, but over the last eight months, I have witnessed the change in my life due to this one daily practice. Getting up at 6am each day is a game changer!

Jamie Oliver #TellTheresa

Jamie was also joined by Dr Dawn Harper, Olympic gold medalist, James Cracknell and Justine Roberts, CEO & Founder of Mumsnet.

Rob and I could train together in the gym whilst Jude enjoy the kids club. We signed up for swimming lessons with a wonderful swimming coach who is aptly named David. Jude started off really well, he was excited about the lesson and he seemed really keen to get in the water. However, he quickly became nervous when he realised that his feet couldn’t reach the bottom and that I was’t getting in with him. He clung on to David and gripped his t-shirt with both hands for most of the thirty minute lesson, but at least he came out smiling.The following few lessons Jude seemed to become more and more anxious …
