Ariane SherineToday I got a DM from one of my favourite celebs. They wrote:
"Read your blog about a regime to lose weight and then an immediate breach of it by scoffing a muffin! You start losing weight then you spoil that by doing something daft."
Here's my reply
It’s odd: I feel guilty and ashamed of binge-eating and being fat, but we all have flaws. In terms of other addictions, some people drink to excess; some smoke; some take drugs; some eat junk…
Ariane SherineI wrote something for you to read on a lazy Sunday: “I feel guilty for binge-eating and being fat, but we all have flaws. Identifying your triggers is the first step to changing unhelpful behaviours. You can’t change something if you’re not aware of it.”
Guys, I have good news and bad news. The good news: I went for a run yesterday! It was only for 13 minutes, I was very slow and my massive heavy boobs were flopping about all over the place –…
Ariane SherineToday's blog features all my best tips and tricks for avoiding the temptation of bingeing on unhealthy food: "The combination of fat and sugar is a big trigger for binges. Eat berries: the sour unrefined sweetness neutralises the taste of refined sugar."
A late blog today as I’ve been spending time with Lily. I don’t want her to grow up and be in therapy saying ‘My mum never spent time with me!’ (Though if you need therapy, …
Ariane SherineI'm turning 40 in exactly six months, and would like you to come to the party. Yes, you! My goal is to be a slinky size 8, fit into the red dress in this picture, and possibly Dad dance like the embarrassing mum I am. Here's how I'm going to achieve this
Happy New Year to you all. I hope you had a good time last night. I stayed in with my good friend John Bon Jovial and watched the fireworks. Then just after midnight I got a phone call, and a small…
Ariane SherineDay #1 of the new blog, and I'm assessing an unflattering picture of me in undies: 'My 40E boobs are so saggy I'm doing keepy uppies with them; I'm more hippy than 1967; and my waist is thicker than that girl on Pointless who thought Paris was a country.'
Ariane Sherine: To give up resolutions. And I recommend that you, too, shun this arbitrary ritual – it inevitably leads to failure and depression
Ariane SherineI just found this Guardian article I wrote exactly ten years ago today, about why New Year's resolutions don't work!
It's proof that I've changed a lot in the last decade. I now love making and keeping goals and resolutions.
Anyhow, it's a funny piece.
We’re entering a new decade tonight, so I’ve been thinking about my life, and the changes I want to make in 2020. As has been well-documented on this blog and on other places including …
Ariane Sherine@Humanists_UK Thank you all for being so super-lovely about this. You rock! As I'm going to be a humanist celebrant, I want to look and feel my best and increase my confidence, so here's my five-fold New Year's resolution. I hope you enjoy the blog and have a fab 2020.
Ariane SherineHere's my five-fold New Year's resolution! I'm going to be blogging daily again, starting a diet, fitness, inspiration and motivational blog. I hope you enjoy it.
Long before Christianity, humans across Europe have gathered together at the darkest and coldest time of the year to feast and appreciate each other’s company. For most people in Britain, Christmas isn’t about going to church or celebrating Jesus...
Ariane SherineMerry Christmas! I hope you’re having a good one. 🎄🍾🥳🥂🤗🎅🏼🙌🏽
Here’s a Humanists UK article on what me, Jim Al-Khalili, Paul Sinha and Sally Le Page are doing this Christmas. (Sadly we’re not spending it together. Maybe one day!)
I’ve been asked for more real life stories from my past, so here’s a little one for you that’s quite funny. I got my first proper boyfriend when I was 15. He was 16 and went to th…
Ariane SherineI've been asked for more real life anecdotes, so here's a funny little story about not making assumptions.
'I don’t want to antagonise him!’ my boyfriend whispered. ‘We’re a mixed-race couple.’
‘Oh, for the sake of fuck!’ I snapped, rolling my eyes.
