66) The Year of No

A few years ago I got a book on audible, it was The Year of Yes by Shonda Rimes and it was fabulous. I remember listening to it as I was out running by the lake one day, I listened as Shonda narrated about how she was stuck in a rut and needed to sort…

49) Love Handles and Women’s Sandals

There’s a red dress in my wardrobe. It’s been there for years. It hasn’t moved from the wardrobe in years because it does not fit me. There, I said it. It barely fit me when I bought it if I’m being completely honest. My actual size was sold out so I told myself the age…

41) Petrol-Pump-Pilates

I skimmed through an article yesterday about how we should all incorporate exercise into our everyday lives.

Suddenly Britney’s Work Bitch song comes on the radio and gets me in the mood for some exercise so I step away from the double choc chip cookie/breakfast and throw on some workout clothes. Before I…

4) Please make it stop…

Day one of the squat challenge got me to 366 squats. As to be expected, my ass was on fire. Now the goal was to get to 470 but in my defence it wasn’t for lack of trying. No one tells you this but life gets in the way of squatting. Life doesn’t care that…

3) Why Do I Do These Things To Myself
