So I've got a few mates recently who have started the running thang. Interestingly we all seem to be a bit the same when we start running in terms of worrying about speed. We spark up our Garmins and analyse every run. Then we say 'Ummmmm yea I'm pretty slow'. Fuck that shit! I mean … Continue reading Speed doesn’t really matter….
So you remember like two weeks or so ago I was trying the giving up my spoonful of sugar in coffee and my half spoon in tea?? Well. The first week was a write off and I was like a crack cocaine junkie slipping them in guiltily. Then I ran out. And so I just … Continue reading Oh and the sugar thang….
So I mentioned tumeric tea I think a few weeks ago. Tumeric is great. Good for allsorts, joints, inflammation and much more, but it just makes me happy. I like yellow things. I have a page called the sunshine board on Pintrest just because I love yellow so much! Yep I do! So if you're … Continue reading Tumeric lurve…❤️
So today was fab! Oh yes it was! Kicked off with a 5 am start to do a 10 k race. It's a smaller race through the botanic gardens and along the river, one of the best routes I reckon. I make any excuse to run the river. I was feeling a bit bluuuurgghhhh this … Continue reading Today was a good day….
Hello! So last week was a bit of a write off. There was a sore knee, a struggle with sugar, a massive dental bill and a Mercury retrograde! Apparently that's responsible for everything so I'm going with that. This week is much better and I've run out of sugar so I'm sucking it up. It's … Continue reading Dani is fed up of chicken!
So sugar is kinda shit right? There's been a big movement to quit sugar in the last couple of years and I did once count up my sugar for the day and even with eating a pretty healthy diet it was still above the recommended amount.I had left out the sugar I have in my … Continue reading Giving up sugar!
So it was book club tonight. Once again I hadn't finished the book but I'd started it so that was better than usual. We went to a French place. I love French food. Or I used to when I ate meat. It's a bit trickier these days. They had rabbit! The French do rabbit well … Continue reading So I just went out for dinner…

Well anyway today she is going on about how we don't have to always be … Continue reading Pip’s going on about this today…
So I've got this dental obsession. Dr Jim makes me happy and makes my teeth nice! When I grew up in the 70s they were keen on filling every tooth they could. I think they thought prevention was better than cure. The local clinic had a roaring trade. So anyway Dr Jim has been redoing … Continue reading Dental obsession!

So recently I've been thinking about changing habits stuff. I started thinking about it after listening to a podcast on the way to work. I'm a bit crazy about podcasts at the moment.

I'm going to start this by saying a few things. I'm not an expert in anything. I'm just someone who became a lot fitter and worked some stuff out. I think everyone has their own journey and I don't care what size you are, I think you're the shit anyway. This is just my stuff … Continue reading Shine
So. I did it. 21k. After all the nerves, training and hysteria I ran through that finish line! I can't wait to do another one. I think running is a bit crazy like that. As you get better at it you start saying things like 'Ahhh it's only 12 k'. At one point you … Continue reading WADDUP 21k
So the day has arrived. The half is not until the evening. I don't know what you are meant to do on a day such as this so I make some cups of tea, drink some water, boil some quinoa and foam roll. I'm aimlessly wandering about the house. I should just put the … Continue reading Half Marathon Day
