Staring Competition But He Always Wins: Wednesday Blog Hop...

Winter for me is a little bit boring. Same old thing! Every day. Nothing much new to see as it is always to cold to go out to far. Not many days out or places to go and if we do get out, it is too cold to take photos!!

Today I am sharing some pictures of  a tree! I see this tree every day on my walks with Mollie the Collie. Well twice a day, mornings and afternoon!

Philips #HealthyHabitSwap...

{Philips #HealthyHabitSwap review/campaign}.

My New Years Resolution goals are going surprisingly well.

I am really enjoying running again and love working out at the gym when I have some spare time. I particularly love the spinning classes. Getting to push yourself really hard, knowing you have had a good workout once you have finished.

Running is very slowly but surely starting to feel easier again, just my pace I want to work on now. I want to knock off 5 minutes on my Parkrun time this year. To get back to my PB; Which was one of my goals for last year, but that is a whole different story!! 

Being part of a running club definitely helps to push myself more.

Water, Water Water : Weekly Fitness Post..

I keep trying to drink more water lately. This one is a hard on for me. Especially in Winter because I find water so boring and cold. 

( Give me a nice warm drink of tea, coffee or hot chocolate any day!!)

I have been aiming for 4 glasses a day to start with. Nearly getting there!! Not bad to say I never really drink plain water 😁

I started back at the gym a few weeks ago and getting back into a nice routine slowly. Only the exercise classes at first, my favourite being spinning!!
