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

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 […]

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 […]
