A while back I wrote My Best Me – about how I’m making changes to my life in order to be the best possible version of me I can be. This life thing is happening fast and I want to make sure I’m in prime condition to enjoy it! So I was sorting my fitness, my nutrition and generally trying to be the best me I could be.And then I went and had an accident and it threw everything! For a while, I was under doctors orders not to exercise, then I lost the desire to exercise as life just seemed a bit, well, too BIG.
And life is STILL big and I’m still healing – but I’ve realised that I need to take care of myself in all this. When I train, I feel energised and happy about life. I feel physically strong and mentally prepared for anything. When I don’t, I don’t. It’s that simple.Like most women, life is hectic and the constant work / life / husband / children juggling is just how things are. And I wouldn’t have it any other way! “It’s happening” is my favourite phrase right now! So rather than feel overwhelmed and like it’s impossible to stay healthy in the madness, I’m embracing it and making life healthy inspite of the madness!
The lovely ladies at Sweaty Betty asked if I wanted to pick some new gear when they heard I was back on it! And I LOVE the vibrant pattern of the Chasandra Yoga Leggings and Sirsha Top and the message in the other pieces I chose! BREATHE (Yoga Vest) is my constant reminder to be in the moment and live it! And the butterfly design on the leggings is how I feel now that I can train again! It’s truly the best feeling ever!
So on the days I can, I head to my gym, David Lloyd in Milton Keynes and Oxford and enjoy the social and physical benefits of group exercising
I’m also feeling more inspired with my juicing and clean diet and recently got two new books to try by Paragon – Clean & Green and Power Snacks. I’ll keep you posted but even having gorgeous books like this on my coffee table helps keep me inspired! I’m also loving Deliciously Ella after meeting the lady herself.
Just have to keep this determination through the 6 week holiday! I always find exercise harder during the holidays but I’ll just have to adjust to exercising as a family. I feel lots of bike rides coming on!
How about you? What helps you keep on track?
