Hi there! My name is Flora and I’m a food and fitness blogger. I am a runner, enjoy niche sports and I gym, a lot.
I am based in London, UK and have recently graduated from studying Biology at Bristol University.
My instagram, @foodfitnessflora started off as an encouragement for me to eat three healthy meals a day, without over or under eating. From the age of 14 I had a dodgy relationship with food and exercise which made me seriously unhappy, but with the help of friends, doctors and the support of the instagram community, I became healthy again, both physically and mentally.
My attitude around food now is ‘if you want it, eat it’, but everything tastes better if you have it in moderation (except almond butter, I make allowances for that). Now I am a huge advocate on exercising for the mind as much as the body, and for me all-round health is far more important than any diet or aesthetic goals.
My fitness regime is inspired by many different forms of training, including weight training, resistance training, HIIT, boxing and running. My first dive into having a constant fitness routine was with Kayla Itsines’ BBG and BBG2, which I loved and still occasionally use. Now I focus on skill sports, such as boxing, and anything else that gets the endorphins flowing – treadmill sprints are a favourite!
I’m here to share what works for me – however, I am not qualified personal trainer or nutritionist. Although my experience over the years has taught me a lot, I can’t say that everything works for everybody. However, I hope you will have a read and see what you think!
