Get the F*#K up!

Category : LIFE, RANT

I am bad at getting out of bed.   It’s not that I am not a morning person (my husband is not a morning person, his whole family are not morning people. Makes me fell like I am super duper good at getting up!) Sorry, where was I? Oh yeah, it’s not that I am not a morning person, it’s just so hard. Hard to move ...

When to Run

Category : FITNESS, Uncategorized

Running is often met with a great deal of groaning, moaning, complaining. People don’t like it! It seems repetitive, tiring and loooong. When I discuss running I’m often told that people would rather do something more fun with their time, that exercise shouldn’t be a chore. And I whole heartedly agree. Exercise sh...

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...

A Step Back from Sport

Just over a month ago my father-in-law was diagnosed with late stage Motor Neurone Disease (MND). For anyone who doesn’t know MND is a progressive neurological condition that attacks the motor neurones, or nerves, in the brain and spinal cord. The messages gradually stop reaching the muscles, which leads to weakness and wasti...

Towards a Better Me: Part 9

Category : FITNESS, LIFE

  The Fear.  Firstly, my apologies for the lack updates. I had been put on a training ban by my doctor while an investigation into what happened with my face during the 5k took place (my face dropped on one side half way through the race). This meant I had no training and nothing really to blog about for two weeks. And then onc...

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 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

Category : BODY, FITNESS, LIFE

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...

On Happiness

Category : LIFE

I was asked to do a Christmas video card, as a nice gesture from one work colleague to a great couple who run one of the gyms where I teach from. To say thank you 🙂 And whilst doing this, it all became ‘about me’… (as most life experiences do for a lot of people, apart from maybe Mother Teresa and Jesus). My frie...

Changing my life and getting fit…

Category : RANT, SPORT

This is a post I wrote about 8 months ago on my old blog. I’m reposting it because a) it’s a topic close to my heart and b) weightloss and changing one’s fitness has not been addressed yet and I feel it’s important. So on that note I hope you enjoy this post 🙂  PS: Image was taken by the super talented Cor...
