Last time I was in a gym was about three years ago. I don’t like gyms. I work out elsewhere: a yoga studio, outdoors or on the mat in my living room. But because I do like to sweat every now and then I got dragged into trying out a class with my friend at Gymbox in Holborn. We did Thigh High class – a fast and fun fusion of lower body exercises with dance that will not only strengthen, tone and transform those wobbly bits, but you will smile all the way through, thanks to the musical choice packed full of Samba beats. Says their blog post… Continue reading “I went to the gym!”
I wouldn’t call myself a morning person, I’m definitely not an early bird (neither am I a night owl…) as waking up at 7am doesn’t quite qualify for it. I’m really good at snoozing, when I say I wake up at 7am that means this is when I start snoozing and most of the time I’m not out of the bed till 7.20. I’m such a sleepy head and a bit slow in the mornings so I need to ease myself into the day with hugging the duvet and pillow as long as I can while half-awake. Continue reading “Morning routine”
I used to lead a quiet lifestyle back in Ireland (Killarney is a very small town and there isn’t much to do there anyway!) and after almost four years in London, I’m still not quite used to the constant noise that surrounds me. I didn’t think I would say that but sometimes (only sometimes! I did leave for a good reason) I really miss the Irish countryside: to be able to walk to work (but then I got a car and sometimes drove the 1K distance instead 🙂 ); run for half an hour and end up in massive Killarney National Park; or hop into my car and drive to some of the most magnificent beaches I’ve ever seen in my life, Inch and Rossbeigh, both only a 40-minute drive away… Life was rather peaceful….
Why I like to sweat every now and then
I think by nature I’m lazy. I’m not a strong believer of star sign characteristics but if there is anything that truly speaks about Tauruses, then in my case, it’s laziness or is it more to do with comfort-loving? Apparently I won’t move a muscle till I’m motivated to get up and work ;). It’s not actually true but what I did notice a long time ago when I gave up fencing is that if I wasn’t forced I wouldn’t do any sports. That lasted for a while and mind you, what I did for eight years, was quite strenuous – there were weeks (years!) of five-day training plus competitions over the weekends. When I graduated from high school I probably just wanted to give myself a break from fencing! Continue reading “Why I like to sweat every now and then”
