Inspire yourselves

It’s getting to that time where I’m itching to workout, I really am. But I need to rest… I need to listen to my body now that I’m 32 weeks pregnant. And unfortunately in doing that, I’ve gone the other way and am shoveling cake in my system like it’s going out of fashion! HOWEVER, with that in mind, I have just received (upon request), some new dumbbell weights for my birthday, in preparation for when I’ve had the little one, or even if I’m having a particularly good day before hand, where a mini workout wouldn’t be such a bad thing.

Keeping myself in check

It’s funny – you (and by ‘you’ I mean those like minded to me, which isn’t everyone of course) strive to be in shape, fit, healthy, toned and looking your best, on and off, for many years of your life. Continue reading

Yoga when cooking one up

Pre Natal Yoga can be boring… it can.

So the weather has cooled for the next few days, and I’ve already enjoyed a few mini yoga flows – doors open, breeze in, mat down, yoga head on. It’s be great! It’s one of those things where when you’re in a bit of a funk, it’s all too easy not to be fussed by the fact you’re not doing it, and instead, embracing the rest (laziness).  Continue reading

I’ve gotta say it – tonight has been just a little near perfect. The only thing missing was having Mr Snacks around – but then I wouldn’t have been able to enjoy a little “me” time, which I believe is really important on occasion. Continue reading

Workout Aversion

It’s so easy to become distracted from your focus. I try my best to practise yoga daily – but when your focus shifts to something else you deem a priority or if your mind is heavily on other things, it’s easy to put your health and habits second. Continue reading

Yoga every damn day

Once upon a time, the thought of practising yoga just wasn’t something I would entertain. I thought it slow, boring and didn’t think it would result in much of a sweat being broken – let alone making any changes to my body.

But those were the days where life was all go. My sole focus was to be “in shape”. If I was going to workout, it had to be hard, fast and leave me dripping in sweat with not much thought taken of technique or quality. My theory was, as long as I was sweaty and stinky by the end of it, it had been a good workout. I know, right?! Nice.
