Compare By Review: A different approach to insurance comparison [AD]

Purchasing insurance can be confusing. With so many insurance companies and comparison sites out there, it’s difficult to know where to start. Compare By Review is a comparison site with a difference. Instead of comparing by price, they rank insurers on product quality and customer experience. When purchasing insurance, I always think about price. But at the point of having to make a claim or deal with the insurance company, it’s not price that matters. I love that there is now an option to make sure you get the best insurance for you, rather than just the cheapest. How can…

Finding the right weight loss solution for you [AD]

Weight loss is such a controversial topic. It’s great to see the body positivity movement encouraging people to embrace the way they look at the weight they are. For some of us though, it’s not about looks but about health. I quite easily lost my baby weight after both pregnancies but then something changed. My husband had an accident and my usual routines went out of the window. Working until the early hours of the morning became the norm. I didn’t exercise for months and when I started again it was only once a week. Tiredness drove me to sugary…

Which is nonsense in my opinion because Libby was both and Lia was neither. Nonetheless, until Libby found her voice I would have said she was a walker. She wasn’t early to walk on…

With just two more weeks to go until half term, it feels fortuitous that the schools are still open. Whilst Covid cases are rising again, there does seem to be some hope that education won’t be disrupted just yet. This past week has brought the first lot of really bad weather since lockdown began in March. I was concerned that we’d all end up a bit stir crazy with staying indoors, but I needn’t have worried. The girls insisted on getting out and about anyway. Whatever the weather I’ve always been a huge fan of getting outdoors regardless of the…

Completing a 1000 Mile Challenge

There are various versions of the 1000 mile challenge, but on the whole it means running or walking 1000 miles during the course of a year. That translates to 2.74 miles per day, 19.23 miles per week or 83.33 miles per month. If that sounds a bit much, you could also take on a 500 mile challenge with the aim of doing 41.67 miles per month. Those might sound like big numbers, but it’s actually very achievable. I’ll explain how I managed to fairly easily complete the 1000 mile challenge within nine months from January to September 2020. Tracking the…
