Pinterest is such a useful way of collecting ideas, images, and information. Lately, as well as clicking on housey things/pretty things/shiney things, I’ve also been looking for health and fitness inspiration as I start moving into what I hope will be a healthier phase for me. I need to let go of some things mentally and get moving physically.
I’m aware there’s a certain irony to sitting at a computer writing about getting healthier, but please believe I am starting to make plenty of positive changes away from the keyboard.
Rose is a fantastic blogger whose blog ‘The Londoner‘ is an utter treat for the senses. This post is called the anti-diet and in it she gives out some of the best advice on eating well and being healthy that I’ve ever read. Oh, how I wish I’d read this post at 21, not 31! Elsewhere on her blog, do check out the recipes (her faux-ice-cream, made with frozen bananas, is gorgeous!).
After hemming and hawing about it, I’ve decided I’d like to get back to a reasonable running place. I don’t think I’ll ever be a marathoner, but I’d love to be able to just go run a few clicks. I have loads of inspirational people to turn to (Christy, Kaz and Amber, I’m looking at you!), and this list is great motivation. I’m going to work on strength and building up my stamina and confidence on the cross-trainer and cycle over the next few months, and then it’ll be time to try running.
I really enjoyed spinning the few times I tried it, but right now I feel so clumsy and clunky a class would feel really intimidatiing. I was thrilled, therefore, to find this DIY spin workout. Our bijou home gym will be set up next week, and I look forward to trying this out!
I watched a documentary on this phenomenon earlier this year. Needless to say I was marching in place by the end of the piece. Definitely food for thought.
LOVE the quote, like the website too. Lots of great ideas!
Do you have any current health goals?
