Happy Dance: Janathon Day 16

Me today doing my happy dance:

I was definitely in the mood for dancing tonight – today I won two new clients!
I can’t say too much yet – but one is an experience and one is a range of products.
Both are amazing.
I can say that with authority having been a customer of both. Happy New Year […]

Reluctant running: Janathon Day 12 & 13

 
I knew this would happen.
After the joy of my first two runs of 2019, my third and fourth were horrible.
Here are my excuses for yesterday’s non-event:

I was a little bit hungover
The biting north wind was hurting my ears and sinuses
I was running with Jenny and it was really slowing down our chat

Reluctant running at Gleneagles
We […]

Hawaii Hands – Janathon Day 9

Woooooop!
Dance class is back!
My Wednesday night dance class is my FAVOURITE workout. It’s hilarious, high tempo and happy – I always leave buzzing. Tonight the track was “Sweet but psycho” by Ava Max . There was a good crowd and Simon was on top form.
Who’s Simon?
I met Simon a year and a half ago when […]

Running non-stop: Janathon day 8

I’ve just been running non-stop for 34 minutes.
I know – I’m as astonished as you are.

I ran 4.84km. I should really have run past my house and looped back to make the round 5k. Damn it, why didn’t I do that?!
I’m trying to figure out how this happened.
Secrets to success
It started with guilt.
I had a […]

Runner’s Rush: Janathon Day 6

I. Am. Buzzing.
Turns out ‘Runner’s Rush’ is actually a thing – and I found it today.

It was totally unexpected. Here’s how my interior monologue went this morning:
“I’ll just go for a slow run. I won’t be out for long, it’s the first one. I’m still in pain from yesterday and I’ve not had much breakfast. […]

Dental issues: Janathon Days 4 & 5

Dental issues: Janathon Days 4 & 5

I got a rush of adrenaline today – but it wasn’t from exercise.
I had to lie in a dentist’s chair and fight the fight-or-fight response. Twice.
I’m really disappointed to be making excuses so soon into my Janathon challenge. I’m not a complete failure in that the boys and I spent Friday morning and Saturday morning […]

Forest Workout: Janathon Day 3

An unexpected and exciting email dropped late this afternoon – so the 45 mins I had set aside for Janathon were transferred to work time.
It ok though.
Today I smashed my activity goal. I’m even a quarter of the way to lapping myself, according to the Apple Watch.

The great outdoors
My son and I went to Dalkeith […]

Reaching out – Janathon Day 2

I was unexpectedly – but delightedly – back at work today. Well, in a manner of speaking.
The individual I’d been planning a meeting with was suddenly available at 10.30am at Gleneagles, so I left Rod in charge of the kids and drove through the frosty sunshine to Perthshire.
It was 100% worth the journey.
I’m sorry for […]

Janathon Day 1: Perspective

My perspective changes every January 1st.
I force myself to look back and then to look forward – so I can learn from experience and plan for success.
This January I’m beginning with a 31 day challenge, rather than a 365 day monster. Within this month is a series of smaller goals and as a result I’m […]

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 […]
