Video workshop: 3 May in Edinburgh

 

What could £150 buy your business in terms of marketing and PR?
A quarter page ad in a trade title? Hmmm, only if you have excellent negotiating skills – and they’re filling space close to deadline.
A sponsored post on an online news site? Yes, probably – but just one.
SEO for your website? Yes, probably two weeks […]

Breathe – Janathon Day 31

Breathe – Janathon Day 31

I’ve done it! 31 days of exercise complete!
I finished on a high with my absolute favourite class – Simon Says Dance – and a complicated routine to Breathe by Jax Jones.
Clare and I did our best but it was hard to keep a straight face in between trying to body roll, kick ball change and […]

Choices – Janathon Day 30

Choices – Janathon Day 30

I chose the gym over alcohol tonight.
I’d had one of those days – you know the ones – when you’ve got issues with your kids on your mind and work is tricky. Normally a cold beer or perfectly mixed Cuba Libre sorts me out, but tonight I realised a workout was what I needed.
Is this […]

A sneaky workout – Janathon Day 27

A sneaky workout – Janathon Day 27

I was lucky to squeeze in an hour in the gym today- it involved a babysitter and a tag team with my husband.
I noticed how much stronger I’m feeling and how much further I can stretch.
I couldn’t resist jumping on the scales. I’ve lost another 500g – so that’s 1.1kg in three weeks. In old […]

Sunshine! – Janathon Day 26

Sunshine! – Janathon Day 26

On Fridays I’m full time in my other job of Mum.
Did you know there’s a weird east-coast habit of closing schools at lunchtime on a Friday? It means Friday afternoons are a natural workout of park visits, bike rides and football in the garden.
A client I get on with very well called around 2pm and […]

Sufferfest – Janathon Day 25

Sufferfest – Janathon Day 25

Something a little bit different for today’s Janathon entry – I made a video. I had to. You’ll see why…

Double time – Janathon Day 24

Double time – Janathon Day 24

I missed day 23 so I did twice the workout today – gym at lunchtime and dance class this evening. Feeling AMAZING!

I was loving the track this evening. It was a straightforward but fast routine – I really had to concentrate. I think I completely threw poor Jen when I took off my sweater and […]

New kicks – Janathon Day 22

New kicks – Janathon Day 22

Occasionally life is straightforward.
I’ve been trawling Mallzee, TKMaxx and Sports Connection for weeks, looking for new trainers. They never had what I wanted in my size for my price point. I even popped into a Nike store and couldn’t find the right pair.
Tonight I walked into the gym and was surprised the sports shop was […]

Snow again – Janathon days 18-21

Snow again – Janathon days 18-21

Workouts are tricky in the snow. You can’t run but you can slide.

After a bump in the car on the ice, I embraced the sledge as our mode of transport. It’s a Porsche 918 Spider model – Rod brought it home from work one day looking very pleased with himself.
The boys love it […]

Bustin’ more moves – Janathon Day 17

Bustin’ more moves – Janathon Day 17

Despite last night’s bump, I was not going to let the snow stop me getting to my dance class.

I’d asked Simon if we could do a routine to my favourite Bruno Mars track and bless him, he obliged.
Louise complained she was too busy singing along to concentrate on getting the moves right – and we […]
