End of the Season

I met Emily about a month ago at a kid’s birthday party.  That’s where we, parents, meet up these days… or during the coffee shop for morning fix. She asked if I would be okay to type an end of season blog having written my first one at the start of the season around February/March. To be honest I’ve been trying to find...

Towards a better me: Part 11

Category : FITNESS

I have sat down to write this post at least twenty times and re-written it closer to ten times. I have not been happy with any version so far. Not even this one. But I think I need to rip of the band-aid.   I think it is fair to say that I have been some what lacking in motivation with everything, training, writing and even cook...

Towards a Better Me: Part 10

Category : LIFE

Realisation:   ‘The Fear’ was still my training mate this week, but I had Denise back this week. ‘Did ya miss me?’, she said as she bounced down to the PT room. ‘Yes, Michelle made me do planks!’, was my reply. The laughter from her indicated she wouldn’t be taking it easy on me. ‘Any mor...

The Lunchtime Slot

Category : FITNESS, LIFE

This is a funny one because obviously not everyone can actually do this. Buuuut… If it’s possible for you and your are sorta on the fence as to when you want to train then please allow me to advocate for the lunchtime slot. It sounds like a drag but I think you might be pleasantly surprised!   1: It’s time sens...

Towards A Better Me: Part 8

The First Race   This week finished with the first milestone of this journey the Castleconnell 5 k run.   Sunday morning, I was up early for the race. Rushing because I was supposed to be on the road at 9am as I was meeting my sisters at 11am in Castleconnell. Thankfully(?) Pierre was injured and could not run his Ballycotton ...

Towards A Better Me: Part 7

  Lacking Motivation   The past few weeks have been really tough for me. There is a lot of stuff going on in my life at the moment. And it all has me extremely stressed out. It always feels like it one step forward two steps back. Every time I seem to make progress towards potentially having a baby, some new obstacle rears...

Towards A Better Me: Part 6

Category : BODY, FITNESS, LIFE

Back in the Saddle   Last week I let pain and fear throw me. But this is a new week, and it’s time to get back in the saddle. As I said before, it’s a marathon not a sprint. It is ok to fall down, it’s human. What is important is that you pick yourself back up and try again. So, I am dusting myself and getting back on ...

Towards a Better Me: Part Four

Baby Steps   So this week began with me still in a whole world of pain. Two days after my first personal training gym session and I was still recovering. Stairs were the worst and unfortunately, my office is on the first floor and the bathroom another stair climb away! What hurt most was knees for some reason. I had booked my f...

Towards A Better Me: Part Three

Category : BODY, FITNESS, LIFE

The Gym!   So Christmas, is over now and it is back to reality this week, back in Ireland, back to work and back on track. This week, I made a big scary step in going to a gym and getting a personal trainer. It is something I have been saying for the past 6 months that I would do but never garnered the courage to actually do it....

Give weights a chance

Category : BODY, FITNESS, GYM, SPORT

So it’s the start to a new beginning everybody! And most people get a little urge to try something new. For some people it’s baking, others it’s the Danish art of Hygge. And for a lot it’s getting fit, getting active. But what to do? Run? Taking up a spinning class? Hopscotch? Well I’m here to make the c...
