A Look Back at 2013 and The Most Popular HHH Posts and Recipes of the Year


This year has been amazing is so many ways and a lot of it would not be possible without you! By reading my posts, liking, commenting and sharing Facebook updates, retweeting and replying to my tweeets, pinning my recipes and liking my Instagram updates, you have made this blog what it is and without that my life, and the past year would have been very different. So thank you for that.

This blog started as a way for me to keep myself on track with my weight loss and not fill up my friends and family’s newsfeed with what I was eating for breakfast each day and how hard my workout was. Gradually more and more people started to read it and tell other people about it and it turned in to what it has today. Although the HHH blog has been around since 2011, it was the past year that it really became something that I never thought was possible. A place where people come to for healthy recipes and fitness tips and what has now turned in to a community of people that are ditching the diets and focusing on making themselves feel great!
Some of the great things that happened this year because of the blog are:

– I became a contributor to Huffington Post (I will be posting more articles there soon) and was also on their TV channel

– I became a health coach

– I started studying to be a personal trainer

– I started writing recipes for Great British Chefs

– I visited the Google HQ in London

– I interviewed an Olympian


Health and fitness wise it has also been a really good year. I went to a fitness camp in Majorca and pushed myself more than I have ever done before and ran further than I ever have done before and I also swam 3km. This year I also decided to run my first triathlon next year. I got to a place where I stopped focusing so much on weight and just focused on becoming stronger, fitter, healthier, faster and happier. That did lead to a bit of weight gain, but the other gains I have made, such as strength are much more important to me.

I also got to travel to Mexico and Paris, which were both amazing. Definitely aiming to do a lot more travelling next year too.

    My highlight of 2013 was reaching my goal weight. That was only about 10 days ago, but I am so happy I did it before the year was out. Thanks for all your healthy recipes and weight loss advice. It has helped me so much.

    My highlight of the year was running my first 10k. I never thought it was possible, but it is amazing what you can do when you work at it.
