Welcome to my little blog!!!!


(esp. of a woman) Attractively lively and animated.
lively – sprightly – spirited – brisk – animated – alive



Hi I’m Ann and I’m 25. I live in West Midlands in the UK.  I use this blog to document my journey towards better healthier eating, exercise and my general life musings. I am very much trying to find what works for me and learn from others in the blogging community.

I’m not originally from UK, I moved here five years ago from Poland so some of my eats may strike you as weird, but I assure you Polish food is worth trying :).

I was a professional figure skater between the ages of 4-14 until I tore my ligament/my body changed/life happened and I gave it up. For a long time after I felt bitter and did not exercise regularly. At my heaviest I weighted 10 stone 2 pounds (this was in April 2010). I am now down to happyish 8stone 8-10 pounds.

I finally rejoined a ladies only gym in June 2008 as my work was hectic and I could only fit 30 mins workouts, it helped with improving my levels of fitness but was not intense enough for me.

I currently work for a mental health charity and I am a member of a PureGym near where I live. At the moment undergoing physio to sort out my back problems so taking exercise easy 🙂

I am now almost happy with my weight but attempting to get leaner and built some muscle. My current goal is to get a flatter stomach and ween myself of some sugar heavy foods.

I love feeling healthier, stronger and fitter and by documenting things on this blog I hold myself accountable to my goals a lot better.

Fun facts about me:

I am allergic to chocolate

I am happy to pose with any inanimate objects as I love to have the camera on me

I am becoming addicted to buying gym clothes

I only watch American TV shows

I want to be a clinical psychologist when I grow up

I squeak when I yawn or sneeze

I hope you may find this blog useful/funny/inspirational in your own journey and feel free to contact me with any questions/comments at vivacioushealthyme at hotmail dot com
