Day 114 – Bollywood dance class

Most of my new things recently have been either about food or exercise – I guess it's important to have a balance! Today we're back with exercise, and after a trying week I needed something light and fun, so I chose to finally cross off a Bollywood dance class from my list. I was looking… Continue reading Day 114 – Bollywood dance class

Day 96 – Yin Yoga class

I've been doing Yin yoga on YouTube for the past few years, trying a few different videos, but always coming back to Yoga With Kassandra. She has a great series for beginners and is amongst one of the few yoga YouTubers who don't talk all through the quiet parts. This is very important in a… Continue reading Day 96 – Yin Yoga class

Day 92 – Qi Gong

I've been trying to keep moving as much as possible whilst being stuck indoors at the moment. I manage to run 3 times a week, and as I mentioned here, I've been doing a lot of online classes live-streamed by the local fitness centre. After increasing my running distance this week, I have a little… Continue reading Day 92 – Qi Gong

Day 88 – Hugged a tree

I'm very fortunate and grateful to live close-by to a forest, I feel it even more so at the moment. I'm at my best when I'm surrounded by nature, and I know that I would not do well at the moment if I lived in the middle of the city. So on a sunny, Spring… Continue reading Day 88 – Hugged a tree

Day 86 – Line dancing

At the moment, I'm discovering how much exercising helps me mentally during this crazy time. A few weeks ago I finally started running again after a year off, I regularly do yoga and tai chi too, but since my movement has been so limited recently, I find myself with so much excess energy to burn… Continue reading Day 86 – Line dancing

Day 81 – Hip Hop dance class

This is something I've never done but always wanted to. I'm a hip hop fan and love a dance, so it seems like a perfect fit! I was looking for more ways to stay active whilst social distancing and came upon a Hip Hop workout class. Ok, so not a true Hip Hop class, but… Continue reading Day 81 – Hip Hop dance class

Day 54 – Went ice skating

Day 54 - Tried ice sakting for the first time, and, spoiler alet, didn't fall over!

Day 29 – Exercising on my own

So once again, I found myself with nothing organised for the day. Sound familiar? I know, it's annoying the hell out of me too. In fact, so much so that I sat down and made a plan for the week ahead, so you hopefully shouldn't have to read that sentence again. For today however, I… Continue reading Day 29 – Exercising on my own

Day 15 – Zen master

I have wanted to try Tai Chi for a really long time. Back in the UK, I had a colleague with a bad shoulder who swore by it: it not only helped her shoulder but left her feeling relaxed and chilled out. Like with sign language last week, I'd put it on my "something new"… Continue reading Day 15 – Zen master

Day 1 – Beef Wellington

New Year's day. The time for new beginnings and new challenges. Well maybe after the bacon I specifically went out for and feel exceptionally guilty for eating and enjoying (bad vegetarian). A run! Yes, running for the first time in a year felt really good. Virtuous after that guilt-bacon. Wasn't there something else I was… Continue reading Day 1 – Beef Wellington
