Run Towards Your Dreams!

Hi genies
The other evening I was out for a little run and it felt really good. There was a little breeze in the late summer air and the sun had just started setting. Those are the moments that I would otherwise miss out on, so sometimes you really do get rewarded just by getting yourself into your running gear and out of the door…and at home I made myself an apple-ginger shot! Love them! πŸ˜‰

Run for your life!

Hi genies
I went on an evening run the other day and did some interval training — pheeew! Even though they’re really hard I love how effectively they improve your running!

Morning Run

Hi genies

Lately I have been pushing myself to get up a little earlier and go for a morning run. Although it’s hard to get out of bed, lace up your shoes and start running, there’s just something about those early summer mornings…and the feeling afterwards is priceless πŸ˜‰

Breakfast Inspiration

Hi genies
When I was younger I never really used to eat breakfast, but now it has become my favourite meal of the day! So if you’re a little stuck in a rut and don’t really know what to eat in the early AM hours, here’s some inspiration for you.

Breakfast Bowls

One of the easiest and fastest breakfasts are nutritious breakfast bowls. As a base you can use anything from yoghurt, nana ice cream to an acai bowl and as far as toppings go, you have virtually unlimited options. So just drizzle, sprinkle, slice and dice away πŸ™‚ Click HERE for more breakfast bowl ideas

Breakfast Bagel

If you like something a little more substantial, maybe after a morning workout, the breakfast bagel is a good option for you. Again, what you choose to fill your bagel with is entirely up to you. Two varieties I’d recommend are with salmon and cream cheese or avocado and scrambled eggs…Yumm!

Eggs ‘n Avocado

And of course, a classic combination that will help fill you up, is any version of eggs and a side of avocado! If this doesn’t motivate you to get out of bed in the morning, I don’t know what will… πŸ˜‰

Hope you enjoyed!

I had some cherry tomatoes left from the day before and decided to whip up some bruschetta; so I diced onions, garlic and the tomatoes, seasoned it with Italian herbs, olive oil and salt, scooped it all onto some toasted rye bread et voilΓ !

Back On Track!

Hi genies
So I don’t know if you remember this…but in a post that was published many moons ago, I told you that I have a big fitness event coming up this fall…a half marathon! And even though I’ve known this for quite a while, I haven’t really put in enough effort to become a better runner. But that is a thing of the past! I have come up with a plan that I really hope is going to work out for me.
Last week I stumbled across an interesting article stating that if you have been an inconsistent runner for a little while and have fallen off the band wagon, in order to get back into it again and start seeing some results, it is a good idea to go running for 30 minutes five times a week for a grand total of three weeks. And that’s exactly what I’ve decided to do!
While I struggled a little with my breathing and my legs felt really heavy, I did it and I felt so great afterwards. So that’s going to be my challenge for the next three weeks and then I’ll take it from there. For the time being I don’t measure how far or fast I run, I just focus on hitting 30 minutes on my watch and enjoying myself as much as I can.

And I have to admit, it definitely helped knowing that when I got home after my run, eggs and avocado were waiting for me!! πŸ˜‰

Running Club!

Hi genies

I’ve got some news…I joined a running club! I’ve been debating on this idea for quite a while now and luckily the perfect opportunity came along and I’m finally part of the club πŸ™‚ Knowing myself, I’m sure this will help me to be more consistent with my runs because I have to be able to keep up with the others and make progress if I want to stay with the same team!
And to be completely honest, if it’s just me on my own all the time…I kind of start slacking after a few weeks and don’t push myself hard enough, even though I really want to improve! So this is perfect for me and I’m reaaaallyyyy excited to see where this is going πŸ˜‰
