If you are feeling a little bit down in the dumps & just don’t know what to do, here’s my advice – get to the gym, go for a walk, dance around you kitchen naked, get your hula hoop on, chase your dog around the garden or do 100 star jumps, whatever it is that floats your boat, do it! Just get a bit of a sweat on & I promise you, your mind will be that little bit clearer, your frown lines a tad less prominent and your world a little bit brighter even if only for a short while, but boy is it worth it, because, life is short, so we might as well try to get the most out of it!
This week I have discovered and explored the highly rated squat. I say discovered in the loose sense of the term – I’m no Christopher Columbus, what I actually mean is, I have discovered the pain the squat can cause. Bloody hell people, my arse and thighs are in agony! It’s good agony don’t get me wrong, but I now hate whoever invented stairs.
I braved them in the gym with 10kg on Wednesday – I was well proud of myself as I am a wimp & hate doing weights in front of people as a feel like a muppets, but there was me, bar in hands & arse out like a duck! I did 75.
I didn’t anticipate doing more that week, however, the day after – my brothers girlfriend asked me to go to Pump FX. I said yes. Little did I know that the bar would be back out to play. This was hardcore. I loved it, but it was a killer. That was Thursday. Today is Saturday. I am hoping this hot bath may be the answer!
Unheard of in these parts! But no, not today. Today the sun is shining brightly in the September sky, it’s warm enough that I’ve put two lots of washing on the line, wild thing!! (I know it’s what you are all thinking)
Anyway, I figured I may not get this chance again for some time (unless I get whisked off abroad) so I’ve got my shapely little legs out for the whole world to see.
I’ve also teamed summer up with a light autumn knit, didn’t want to get too carried away now do I?!
Because girls just wanna have fun :-)
2 weeks ago I started yoga. I’ve tried a few moves in the past (see my ‘bridge-ing’ idea) but never managed to take myself to a class. Now that the move has been made, I’m never going back! Practicing yoga has fast become the highlight of my week. I mean I love my running, but the relaxation factor that yoga brings makes me want to worship the bloody sun EVERYDAY!!
It’s yoga day today (something to smile about) which means by the time I get to bed tonight I will be in a much better frame of mind!
Have you tried yoga? What are your favourite moves? If you had to do 5 yoga poses everyday – what would they be, please share, I know there are loads of dedicated yogi’s out there!
No, not those kind of runs silly! This evening I went for a lovely 4.5 mile run, in one of my favourite little running spots, Llanfairfechan.
I’ve not been for a while, so I am beyond chuffed with my self, that I had to share it with you all. Think I ran my fastest time too, long may it continue! Whoopee, now go & get your trainers on!
