Matalan activewear 2015
Do you know what really made me smile this week? Two things in particular. One being that I had to do a boot camp workout class with my hair down. There was an unfortunate incident involving dropping a scrunchie in a loo. I can't tell you just how fun it was to be running around with my hair swishing around in the evening sunshine, quite liberating! Now, it wasn't all that practical for some activities but it didn't seem to matter. The difference was staggering; I felt like I looked nice, it gave me a huge grin and also made me feel like a proper rebel.

My fitness journey hasn't been a consistent upward trend; I go through both patches of things going really well and then other times some rocky days and weeks where everything feels like hard work and pointless. It's sometimes too easy to get bogged down with the 'right now' and forget to take a few steps back and give yourself the credit for everything you have achieved. It takes time to make progress and move closer to reaching goals; the commitments of time, energy and money are all worthwhile in the end. It's a journey, you'll get there if you keep working at it. Give it your best each time and make little steps of improvement, they all add up! Make sure you give yourself the encouragement and praise that you afford to others. You're doing great, go inspire yourself.

This new workout gear from Matalan has been a welcome addition to my wardrobe and made me so happy! I love the digital style print activewear range and this bright turquoise stretchy top is really comfortable for working out.
Who inspires you?

  2. Sophie - Quite simply you inspire me, you always have done and always will. This makes me so happy, because like you I have periods of doubt, forever getting caught up in self doubt or not having enough time to devote to my chosen hobby.
    It's hard keeping fit, there is not a single day goes by in which I don't ask myself if I am doing what I need to, to be on the right path. But, the benefits far outweigh everything else.
    The feeling of fit - you know the one very well.
    Great gear - I forgot a bobble for running a few weeks ago, and like you ended up running with my hair carelessly down and flying about everywhere! And felt, completely DIFFERENT! Naughty, but free. This made me smile.
