For many years now, I have subscribed to the author Paulo Coelho’s school of thought: “When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it”.

So, as someone who, for many years has incorporated exercise and wellbeing into their lives in a bid ‘to be the best of me’, imagine my dismay when the universe has positively halted me in my tracks and dealt me a harsh blow. The moment I am persuaded by others to start my blog and share the journey of my aspiration of being ‘Oh Fabulous Me’ (and hopefully inspiring others to be their most fabulous selves in the process), that myself – or my back, to be more precise – decided to be utterly non-fabulous and sustain an injury. The timing is so utterly impeccable. You couldn’t make this up! So much for the universe’s help!
