Diet & Fitness Mondays

 After a few hard week's training I had a nice easy week this 
 week as I've built my mileage back up and done a few races
 over the last two weeks.The thing is now after having a few
 easy day's and eating what I like don't want to run again.....

This is the message I had on dailymile when having a few days off..


  1. I'll Beat You :)
    While you're resting, I'm stacking up miles on you.....

I love running and motivation quotes....here is a few ....

"What matters is not necessarily the size of the dog in the fight - it's the size of the fight in the dog."
- Dwight D. Eisenhower


Ask yourself: 'Can I give more?'. The answer is usually: 'Yes'."
-Paul Tergat, Kenyan professional marathoner

"To get to the finish line, you'll have to try lots of different paths."
- Amby Burfoot

Many people shy away from hills. They make it easy on themselves, but that limits their improvement. The more you repeat something, the stronger you get."
- Joe Catalano

"Methinks that the moment my legs began to move, my thoughts began to flow."
- Henry David Thoreau

"Play not only keeps us young but also maintains our perspective about the relative seriousness of things. Running is play, for even if we try hard to do well at it, it is a relief from everyday cares."
- Jim Fixx

"It is better, I think, to begin easily and get your running to be smooth and relaxed and then to go faster and faster."
- Henry Rono

And my favourite one...

Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up. It knows it must outrun the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning in Africa, a lion wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the slowest gazelle, or it will starve. It doesn't matter whether you're a lion or gazelle - when the sun comes up, you'd better be running."
- Unknown

This week the kids are off school so i shall be blowing the cobwebs of some exercise dvds and trying dance central out on the Xbox ....

Do you have a favourite quote motivational or just  life quotes?


There is loads i love them....And always love to hear new ones....


Any favourite video games to workout to?


Hope you've all had a great weekend,have a great bank holiday.... and hope you will pop back for my blog hop on Friday :)

The Gallery:My Backyard.


Today over at The Gallery the topic is My Backyard.

Here are the photo's of mine backyard not to big and not to small just right for us as we've never got the time to do much gardening....




Was so pleased when we were left this by the previous owner
but after 2 and a half years still never got around to using it.




The patio ready for barbecue weather.




The little old shed needs a little TLC.


The waterfall another thing that's never been use!


This time of year our garden is shared with these bugs
(not sure of their name)




But the good thing is they go to sleep when it to hot....


We just need a few nice flowers now to finish it off....
