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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
Is that the number of calories I burned today?
The number of millilitres of wine I drank last night?
Probably bang on.
600 is the number of grams I have lost after two weeks of Janathon.
That’s 1.3lb in old money.
Not impressed with myself.
“Yes but you’ve probably gained muscle weight,” my new friend in the Zumba class reassured me.
I was actually sweating when I got home from our New Year’s Day walk so I know I made it count.
My 3 yo is still recovering from shingles so was in the buggy. Pushing him up a long hill is a great glutes workout.
Of course he happily jumped out at the summit and ran around […]
I had a good effort last night and I plan a river run tomorrow morning, so today I just wanted a really good stretch plus a bit of pilates.
I did the ten minute pilates waistline trainer from FitSugar (thanks YouTube) and then sat watching Luther on the floor doing some deep stretching. One day I […]
Sometimes you commit to things suspecting you’ll struggle to honour that commitment. I reckon you just have to make your best effort, after all, life is unpredictable.
I did have a very active day with two under fives – I suspect that if I tried to write “pushed a four year old back and forth on […]
Our traditional New Year’s Day walk became a bit of a circuits session. There was the resistance training (pulling a tired four-year-old along on his bike using the rope from the sledge); the weight-lifting (carrying the tired four-year-old home when he would no longer sit on the bike) and even a bit of dead lifting […]
I had plans to go for a run tonight – especially after my 6-months-pregnant friend Sarah informed me she was off to the gym – but I didn’t.
I had a deadline for a 5000 word report and spent so long after dinner tweaking the design and layout that it was suddenly 9.20pm and too late […]
