For me the past few months have been a bit of a mare on the fitness front, I was really struggling with motivation after completing my first half marathon in May this year and I’ve come to the realisation that it was mainly to do with the lack of vision and goals after the half. For many years running was a far off dream and I never even contemplated that I would be able to complete a 10km let alone twice that distance. All my fitness goals thus far have been based around those goals and I was really struggling to see past that, almost making myself believe that a half would just never happen.
Crossing the finish line had its emotions but at the time it didn’t seem like a big achievement which put me in a bit of a rut for a while.
Over the past couple of months I’ve started to change my focus, I still want to run (and enjoy it) but strength work has come to the forefront a bit more. This began the thought process of changing my blog name to reflect better on where I am heading and a lengthy process that was! I’ve actually created a whole new blog so if you’re interested in looking at the old blog the link is here.
Finally Sweat Eat Run Repeat was created.
SWEAT: Strength work (generally done in the morning)
EAT: Won’t deny it – this girl loves her food. I enjoy creating and trying new dishes and have found that there are many wonderful things you can do with good clean food (even better!). Sure, I have the odd treat now and again but it has its place.
RUN: As mentioned above my goal of becoming a runner was huge in my life, I enjoy running and still will be doing it a few times a week but I’m adding in extra focus as well ☺
REPEAT: For me this denotes creating daily habits, a healthy and happy lifestyle that improves myself and hopefully gives inspiration to others around me.
