Podcasts are mentioned a lot these days and you can find one on pretty much any topic. I started listening to podcasts, well one, about two years ago but instantly became hooked… It wasn’t until towards the end of last year that I began to get more into podcasts as opposed to just the one… Continue reading PODCASTS: MY FAVOURITES
A topic everyone is talking about right now. Understandably so, and I feel like putting my two cents in. I have been working from home for 5 weeks now and have had 2 weeks Easter holidays thrown in and it has been weird. As a primary school teacher, my days are usually filled with 20+… Continue reading PRODUCTIVITY DURING LOCKDOWN?
Waaah. Aaaargh. Oh God. Just keep going. And various other random sounds were expressed during my first run in 3 years. I have never actually completed a 5k until this run. 45 minutes… So let’s face it, I need to shave 5 minutes off each mile. And work on just slowing my pace instead of… Continue reading FIRST RUN IN 3 YEARS
Well hello there… Again. I’ve been MIA for a few weeks now. I was loving blogging again, writing and posting regularly. And then, as it tends to do, life got in the way. A lot was going on for 6/7 weeks and it completely threw me out of my routine. But, like I always do… Continue reading HELLO… AGAIN!
Hello hello! If you read my last post, you’ll know I have recently read Train Happy by Tally Rye and it’s a book I feel I have to talk about it. I have never read anything like it, or really been exposed to those views before. ‘Train Happy’ is all about intuitive exercise and listening… Continue reading TRAIN HAPPY – TALLY RYE
The older I get, and the more into health and fitness I get, I’ve realised some really toxic behaviour that I feel we need to leave in the last decade. Maybe it’s the people I follow, or did… I’m getting good at unfollowing people who I find are negative, or affect me in any undesirable… Continue reading LET’S STOP DIET SHAMING
These past few weeks have highlighted how valuable weekends are. As a student with weekdays off, the weekends didn’t phase me much. But now, as a full time teacher, my weekends are so important. I’m trying to make a conscious effort to spend my weekends well. While duvet days are sometimes a necessity, I do… Continue reading #SUNDAYWELLSPENT – OCTOBER
I am Shona’s (marginally) fitter older brother, Rory. She’d tell you I stay fit for the wrong reasons: my unhealthily competitive nature and to impress girls. She might have a point as I’m still not having that much luck with the latter. However, whatever my reasoning there is no doubt that getting fit and keeping… Continue reading FITNESS IS FOR EVERYONE: EVEN IF GYMS ARE NOT
This week, I graduate from my undergraduate degree! I have mixed emotions… On one hand I’m super excited to be moving on to the next chapter but I am a little scared to leave the people and the place I’ve felt secure at for the past four years. In terms of graduation itself… I genuinely… Continue reading GRADUATION DRESS SHOPPING: WHAT I LEARNED
I posted at the beginning of the year what I want from 2018 but they were all longer term goals and while I’m determined to achieve them, I want to focus on things I can achieve in the short term too. Keep up with the gym I’ve been pretty good the last couple of weeks… Continue reading FEBRUARY GOALS
