55) Rescued

I’m not a fan of cliches, I like words and phrases to be as authentic and unique as possible. I cringe when people say that they are ‘marrying their best friend’ or that it was their rescue dog that rescued them. Then I got married and had to physically restrain myself from writing in my…

54) Everything Nothing Something

Please don’t ask me what I’m worried about. It’s everything, nothing and something. I’m not writing this for the people who have anxiety, the people who know this tight feeling in their own chest, who’s breathe matches mine today. I’m writing this for those that can breathe easily and who want to know what we’re…

53) A Lesson in Regrets

I can’t remember which medical professional made the comment. That’s a common theme lately, not remembering. I seem to have hit my head in the place where the short term memory receptors live. Anyway, it doesn’t matter who said it, the comment itself was what made me think. “I bet you regret that.” For those…

46) I lied.

Yup I’m a liar. And let’s be honest: so are you. You know who the biggest liar of all is? Its Instagram. Followed closely, in my humble liar liar pants on fire opinion, by Facebook. So many people lately have been saying things like “oh wow you’re so lucky, ur life looks amazing, I wish…

45) Boxing Bootcamps and Work Boots

My favourite part of marathon training was by far the carb loading, my god do I love a good carb! Apart from being oh so satisfying it also really helped with the energy levels during training. Now that the marathon is over I have found it extremely difficult to break it to my body that…

41) Petrol-Pump-Pilates

I skimmed through an article yesterday about how we should all incorporate exercise into our everyday lives. I thought to myself “Well this doesn’t really apply to me, I’m pretty active and healthy.” Then I paused and took a look at myself…I was lying on the couch with a glass of wine in one hand,…

38) Helmet hair and buns of steel

Me: “So how soon until I can go running again?” Physiotherapist: “Not for at least a month.” Me: “……oh….ok.” Physiotherapist: “No seriously, I strongly recommend that you do not run with your knee in this condition.” Me: “Gotcha, no running, I understand.” Physiotherapist: “Ok good.” Uncomfortable pause…. Me: “A light jog perhaps?” Physiotherapist: “PROMISE ME…

33) Adam And Eve Ate The Nutella

Now that I’m quickly approaching my late 20’s my metabolism really isn’t what it used to be. This is now what I must do to myself in the name of being healthy! A few days ago I came to the horrifying realisation that there was no chocolate in the house. As I happened to be…

3) Why Do I Do These Things To Myself

Right so since I am horrifically sick with this flu it rules out any outdoor activities or anything that involves other humans as I am currently a walking disease. I needed to think of something different that I could do that was preferably in my living room where I could be wearing my pyjamas and…
