The Ciara Chronicles Turns 1!

On the 27th of September 2016, The Ciara Chronicles turned one. One! That means that I stuck at something for one whole year without giving up on it. If my younger self saw what I’ve just written there, she would be appalled because she was such a driven person who was determined to succeed at anything she’d try. But my present self, a person who’s battled with her mental health for a number of years, is so proud to have finally kept something up for longer than a couple of weeks. A blogging milestone has been reached!

The Exercise Revelations


It’s been over two months since I started my personal training sessions with Russell Fitness and honestly, I have no idea where the time has gone! I’ve had my ups and downs in the past couple of weeks as we all know, but each time I picked myself up and got back on the horse again. In these past few weeks, I’ve also had a couple of revelations which I believe are things that people need to be aware of when starting on a healthy eating/losing weight/fitness journey, and that’s what today’s blog post is going to be about!

Wearing Pink & Oozing Confidence


It’s the weekend so we all know what that means, it’s time for my weekly check in to tell you how I’m getting on with my personal training sessions with Russell Fitness. This week has definitely been one of my best weeks, not training wise but how I was feeling about my body, how my body was feeling after training and how I was just feeling myself. I also developed this huge confidence boost which is something I totally needed, so let’s find out why…

Obstacles Are Put In Your Way To See If What You Want Is Worth Fighting For

Untitled-2.gifHappy Saturday, readers! I hope you’ve all had a fantastic week and are enjoying the weekend so far. Here I am with my fourth instalment of how I’m getting on in Russell Fitness and I guess you can probably tell from my happy little greeting there, I’m in a lot better form than my previous post. Before I head straight into how the week went, I’m going to tell you a funny story about a life lesson that I learned this week for those who haven’t seen it on The Ciara Chronicles Facebook page. Enjoy! Continue reading

A Girl’s Excuses For A Bad Week


Firstly, I would like to apologise for this post being a day late but it’s a Bank Holiday Monday so technically, it’s a Sunday… Right? I was working this weekend but fortunately, my scheduled day off was on a bank holiday – how fab! Secondly, I would like to apologise for how much of a failure I ended up being last week regarding my eating, exercising and mentality towards becoming a fitter and better version of myself. I’m going to hate even looking at this post, never mind writing it because I will actually have to put into words how badly it went. Although you’re probably going to think I’m full of excuses, I have a completely valid reasons on why it went so badly, so let’s read on and find out what happened!

It’s Time To Change, ASAP.

So, it’s the 21st of May which means that June is just around the corner. That also means that we’re just about to hit the half way point of 2016, and guess what? I’m still the exact same weight I was at the beginning of the year. If you’re a frequent reader of my blog, you’ll know that all I’ve wanted for the last I don’t know how long is to get back to my former fit and healthy self. I say healthy but when I think about it, I ate the exact same way as I do now but I just danced all the time. All the time. Continuing to eat the way you had previously after growing up and developing a slower metabolism probably wasn’t my greatest idea, and after seeing a picture of myself recently, I came to the conclusion that things need to change now.

Oh, fantastic! Another blogger.


Hello everyone and welcome back to another post where honestly, I didn’t have a clue what I was going to write about but then turned into a little bit of a rant. My lack of motivation for blogging is driving me absolutely insane and it’s making me feel like I’ve failed at yet another thing in my life that I’ve wanted to accomplish. I know very well that I haven’t failed and it’s just a little bump in the road, but that’s what a good old mental health issue will lead you to believe. Along with the horrible stigma around bloggers lately, of course I’m unmotivated. Continue reading
