So today has been one of those ‘do-nothing-days’. I feel really girly because I all I have done is bake a Victoria sponge (with lacto-free cream due to my intolerance to dairy).
I also watched way too many episodes of Pretty Little Liars so much so that I’m embarrassed to say how many… Finally to finish my day I went for an evening run. I’m so blessed to live in the countryside because I can run through fields and take in some beautiful views of the East of England.
Fitness is an activity that I think is really important. I love to run, but most of the time I lack motivation. I’m so our holiday got cancelled this summer as I really haven’t kept up my ‘summer figure’… That’s why going on a run is really worth it.
I like to think that running is a regular occurance in my life but it really isn’t. I don’t reach my 10k goals and always give up just after 5 or 6k. These runs are rarely happening now at only maybe once a fortnight. I’m so unfit and my stamina is failing!! Im so lazy I don’t want to get out of bed in the mornings!
It may seem like a random post but I just wanted to mention how great the area I live in is and how you should appreciate the places you have around you. I think we’re so lucky in the UK for the absolutely stunning views we have on our doorsteps!
A small area of land with grass and trees to me is so beautiful and we should appreciate this more. How cool would it be to to combine nature with the man-made. To take our TVs and laptops outside to watch Netflix outside like a forest cinema.
I think I have groundbreaking information and the intelligence that the world needs! Are forest and woodland cinemas a thing?? I’m so going to do this. Create a projector attached to some trees get some blankets and turn on Netflix.
This is genius. If Alan Sugar makes this a thing, you heard it here first. If this is already a thing I’m really behind the times.. #grannyginfold
The image above is of the small lake I would sit by when I was younger. When I did something wrong at school or if I was feeling down I would sit it all evening and just chill. I would watch the ducks swim and just listen to the world. When I felt like I was failing I would sit here for hours. Going back to one of my safe havens felt so good.
I remembered all the times of struggling and self-doubt and see how far I’ve come. From today I have realised how many goals I have completed over the last 12 months and I’m so lucky to have come so far! With that in mind I want you all to know that you can do it. You can reach those goals, you can climb your mountain and be the best you can be. If you believe you can you’re half way there.
Run, run, run as you can, you can’t catch me because I’m Ginfold! (Ha ha I joke!) To my dearest moonshines: You must give everything to make your life as beautiful as the dreams that dance in your imagination and when everything feels like an uphill struggle, just think of the view from the top.
