November 1st

November 1st and 8.2lbs lighter. 🙂 September – October has been hard due to intangible factors. I’m happy that I’ve lost some weight during these challenging times. This November I hope to manage my portions better. Increase my iron intake and learn more about plant-based skin care. 🌱🌱🌱 Will be updating my blog more thisContinue reading “November 1st”

Morning Walk: 1st July 2020

I went out for a walk this morning. It was supposed to be a run but it’s raining where I live. It felt great to get outside and enjoy the fresh air and the quiet. Loved every second! Are you working out today? Let me know what your plans are in the comments below. LoveContinue reading “Morning Walk: 1st July 2020”

Stairs & Stomping

During my daily walks, I encounter hills and while I enjoy walking down them, walking up frustrates me. Because at that point I’m tired. However, as my body needs this I will walk up the hill, but I walk up stomping. Not like in an angry way, but in a way where my strides areContinue reading “Stairs & Stomping”

Fitness: Why I Chose Running?

I was asked recently, ‘What made you choose running?’ and after thinking about it, I responded by explaining that running chose me. I had signed up to a fancy gym that had all the amazing first-class facilities to use. All classes included in the membership and 30 minutes worth of personal training, at no additionalContinue reading “Fitness: Why I Chose Running?”

Independent Improvements

Independent Improvements Once upon a time, a time long, long ago. I needed advice, I needed to know what to do and when to do it? How to begin and why? All I found was skinny models inside magazines, wearing swimwear and posing with pieces of fruit between their lips. I asked friends and oneContinue reading “Independent Improvements”

Missed Marathon

Photo credit: Unsplash The day of the ½ Marathon. I had to withdraw, due to coming down with a dreadful cold, days before the event. I felt despondent, like a failure before failing. I even talked myself into attending but only walking through, rather than anything more strenuous. My mind wanted to participate, but myContinue reading “Missed Marathon”

Yoga FLAME/SHAME(?) nah.

Yesterday, I attended my first yoga-class. (First in about 10 years.) the teacher said we were not allowed to drink any water during. I wasn’t happy about that and considered walking out. But I stayed and breathed on. Before starting, I asked the yoga teacher if it is aimed at ‘beginners?’ He said, ‘anyone canContinue reading “Yoga FLAME/SHAME(?) nah.”

Tea Time with Pukka

Late last night, I made a mug of Pukka Tea, #PukkaCleanse to be exact. After consuming a large portion of battered chips 😔I felt a combination of sadness, disappointment and the need to fix it. The taste (for me) was awful. But I downed it, I finished to whole cup. It’s goodness that will noContinue reading “Tea Time with Pukka”

The Hold Up – Sports Bras

It has taken me months to locate a ‘high support,’ sportsbra. I’ve tried on so many from Adidas and Nike (hard to purchase my size) I must say the Adidas sports bras look amazing on the mannequins. They’re impossible to get on, some appear to have been designed by a man…no offence. Finally, I triedContinue reading “The Hold Up – Sports Bras”
