Progression of me

from eighty four to now…

Living for the moment.

As we approach the end of 2014 I can say that this year, like each year, has disappeared more quickly than the last.  At this time of year we have the opportunity to look back on what was and think about what is to come.  But most importantly, it’s a time when most people have a few minutes to just breathe.  And enjoy NOW.  Life is so busy most of the year, that I urge you to take a step back, and if you have 4 minutes, I beg you, please watch this.  That is all.

Until next time!

Self Belief.

Today I achieved something I thought I’d never do.

I completed my first Fun Run!

And even more importantly I did it without walking.

Stoked doesn’t even begin to describe how I feel; and I’m even thinking it won’t be my last…

Who’d have thunk it?!  At school I was never a runner.  In fact I HATED running.  And as an adult if I ever had to run; I could hardly run 100m without gasping for breath and feeling as if I would die.

Monday Motivation!

Monday Motivation!

I saw this picture on Facebook and thought it was a good quote to kick-start the week 🙂

You may have fallen off the wagon a little over the weekend, or even had a great weekend but have that feeling of “Mondayitis” and need a little pick-me-up.  Hope this helps!

Happy Monday everyone! x

Shout Out Sunday!

Along with my change in the look of my site I have decided to make a few small changes in content.

The first change is that I plan to write a short post every Sunday which is a Shout Out.

Either to: a fellow blogger who has motivated me, informed me of something awesome or just kept me smiling this week;

To a site which I may have stumbled on which is full of great information;

To someone I know who has done something special;

Or eventually – if you have someone you want me to give a shout out to just flick me a comment and I’ll be happy to give them a mention!

Today’s Shout Out is a bit of a general one and goes to everyone who is on a journey!  Be it at the beginning, middle or nearing the end!  Whether it is a fitness or health related journey, a career related journey or simply getting by day-by-day.  YOU’VE GOT THIS!!!  YOU CAN DO IT!!!  All you need to do is give it a go.  Your best is all that it takes – no one elses 🙂

Self Belief

On the 4th of September a work colleague and I decided to give “Squatember” a go.  For more info, check out my previous posts – here and here.

Today, being the 30th of September, was the final day.  250 Squats!

Looking back to the 4th of September when we had to cram 3 days worth (165)  into one day, it had been a struggle and I looked towards the last day thinking “250 squats OMG!”  But now, I can say, with a huge smile on my face “I DID IT!!!”

And this is the first time I have set myself a challenge and actually stuck to it.  Not once did I cheat!  And I can feel the benefits too!  I may not really be able to SEE them yet, but my butt certainly feels a little more firm!

So, what have I learnt from this challenge?

1. That if I really want something I CAN DO IT!!!!

2. That there was never a point where I thought I wouldn’t be able to do it…I just expected myself to do it.  I think that’s the key – if you simply just believe – you don’t doubt yourself – you just…well..do it!

3.  I’ve learnt different ways to squat and that breaking up a challenge into smaller, more manageable tasks is definitely the way forward.

4. I’ve also found having my little calendar up on the wall both at work and home where I could cross off each day was a big help and kept me motivated!!

All up I’m stoked, that I’ve proven to myself I actually can do something.  Normally I get impatient or forget and then give up…this time, I’m not quite sure what was different but I want to give myself a huge pat on the back for sticking with it!  I’ve now decided I’m going to keep doing the squats into October – probably not as many but a minimum of 50 a day!  TOO EASY!

Next month is going to be “Upper Body Rocktober” so I’m hanging out to see what exactly this involves and SMASHING my second challenge in a row 🙂

Ladies, if you haven’t seen this video yet, do.

Take a moment.
Watch it.
Think about it.

Mull it over.  In your own time.
Share it with someone else.

Then tell me, do you think you’re more beautiful than you say?
Yes.  Yes, you are.
