Mara Trip! (A Fitness Goal to Work Towards)

I have just been informed that i will be going to the Mara with some year 6 kids (11-12 year olds) for three days, from the 29th of June – 2nd of July.

I am excited and humbled that the school thought of me to go with the kids seeing as there are other staff who could have gone.

One of my colleagues knows that i have not been working out for 3 weeks (gasp!)

She told me to get on that exercise tip immediately. She says there will be lots of walking and games that will be played and the kids will pull me in and i definitely wouldn’t want to be aching and paining then. i would want to get in on it. That is the perfect goal to work towards and to have a massive workout at the end of it all.

I cannot wait! 

In the meantime today i lace up my shoes and go for a mini jog -maybe 20 minutes and then follow up with some yoga.

Seeing as the Stanchart Marathon is coming up and i still want to do the 21 km walking or 10 km running, this is a great day to achieve that as well as accomplish one of my new years goals.

How is everyone coming along with their new years goals/resolutions? It is never too late to start, even if you failed, just get up and tr again (just like everyone else)


Sunday Musings

I am currently reading Americanah by Chimamanda Adichie and it has made me think..or maybe it is thoughts that have always been in the periphery of my mind, I don’t know, but this is what I have realised.

I love my life, with all it’s ups and downs I wouldn’t trade it for anything and for that I am very grateful to God. Everything is as it should be.

Fitness is a personal journey. I really try to be accountable to myself and you who read my blog. I am not very good at it and all I can say is that every day I get up and try try again. As long as I don’t give up, I am on the right track.

From time to time I think of the ex and I miss some things. I sometimes regret that things didn’t work out but I realise this: I mias what could have been but I no longer miss him. Haven’t in a long long time.

Those are just some of my thoughts. Share yours and/or what you think of mine.

Happy Sunday 🙂 

Americanah. Chimamanda Adichie.

In the past few days I have alternated between staying up late and trying to ignore (unsuccessfully) Chimamanda’s latest book Americanah. 

I love love it.

I can relate with Ifemelu, going to a new country and struggling with the culture and finances. To coming home where everything is strange but still familiar. 

For some reason I feel like I am reading about myself. Or is it that I can relate to both of Ifemelu and Obinze? 

Go out and get it and read it. If you have already read it, what did you think of it?
