I've been wanting to press play for a VERY long time. So much has gotten in my way. We had to pack up the house (including my weights and fitness equipment), sell the house, finding jobs, move across the country, still unpacking boxes and still unable to find the coffee maker, along with no internet for the first 5 days here. Yes I could have still probably gotten a quick workout in that involved no equipment, but with limited space, house viewings and the fact that we moved and packed everything ourselves made us extremely exhausted. Moving to Colorado is also a challenge especially with my asthma and the fact that I can't climb a flight of stairs without getting winded.
Today I figured it was enough of my excuses, so I pressed play on a 3 week yoga program!
I am adding dog walks to my daily exercise, and some weight training at the gym here at the apartment complex, and ensuring I'm getting all my water in. Did I mention its dry in Denver??? Chap stick is my new best friend along with my water bottle.
So, here's to my continued journey, more determined than ever to get and see the results I have been wanting for so long.
Oh April! How I’ve missed you and your showers- NOT!! I had the bloody sandals out and everything over the weekend and may have even considered busting out my summer wardrobe 🙈 Kinda glad I didn’t now!
Anyhoo back to the quote....I really try to always be the flower but some days it really rains. I figure you need a little rain to keep the flower alive though don’t you, and to help you appreciate the flower’s beauty when the sun comes out.
Enjoyed some time at the spa today getting my haircut. Taking some time to fill my cup and get pampered. Why do I feel guilty saying this? I think we should celebrate each other and lift each other up when someone chooses self care🌷🌾💜
Drogie kobietki, dzisiaj miałem okazję skorzystać z zabiegu endermologii w klinice Beauty Skin. Gorąco polecam ten zabieg. Ciało jest jędrne,elastyczne,wysmuklone a efekty są widoczne już po pierwszym zabiegu! 😍 @klinikabeautyskin
Good mawwwnin’ you lot ☀️ Sun’s out again, hubs is on his way home and I’m having a slow start!! So much so that I took the time to make and display my breakfast in a typically insta-wanky way for no reason other than simply because I finally have some time on my hands 💃🏼🙋♀️ As many of you know, I started following a plant based diet (Vegan) last summer and I get asked a lot about what I eat. Since I’m posting predominantly anything I jolly well fancy these days (cue 7389 departing followers 🙋♀️) I thought I’d do some posts here and there of what I eat.
This is simply a bowl of porridge (in my fav coconut shell bowl🥥) made with half coconut half oat milk. Topped with sliced fresh strawberries, half a banana, a drizzle of Agave syrup (tad indulgent for a school day, I know!) and topped with flaked almonds and some chia seeds ✅
I have this with a big glass of water (I always drink mine at room temperature because frankly I’m an odd buggar)and sometimes a smoothie. It’s really yum and I’m literally so full up, I need to loosen my top button on my jeans! .
On this day (this post is late) I celebrated another trip around the sun and brought in my new year with solo festivities; a visit to the secret garden, a waterfront picnic with a new book and sweets, a nap in the sun, an afternoon in the spa, a cocktail, and a lengthy stretch of silence in the grass under a flowering tree. This life can rob you of so many joys if you let it. This year I hope to love as openly as I did in my youth, regardless of whether that love is received and returned or unrequited. I want to delight in the giving, which has always brought me so much joy, and allow myself the space to act as my conscience dictates without fear of betrayal or any other scars that life experiences have left me. We get this one precious life. It isn’t perfect, it is riddled with pain and suffering, but every day that we wake is a new chance to find some small grain of joy to acknowledge and embrace. There is still so much beauty and mystery to unravel. I hope never to take any bit of it for granted. 🌸🌿
