The summer of trying…
Again a few months has gone by without me writing anything… But if you follow me on Instagram and/or Twitter you’ll maybe have an insight to why I’ve been M.I.A.
I’ve been trying new things!
Me, the girl who’s never been into “sport” has found a one that I really love! Actually it’s more like I’ve found a way to have fun and enjoy my summer to it’s fullest… Yup, I realise I love face planting into lakes!
Ok so this sport has a real name it’s called Cable Wakeboarding, if you’ve never heard of this before imagine being strapped into a snowboard and being pulled around a lake holding a “Ski Lift” style cable in your hands and feeling like your flying on water! <<< I do that, well actually I try… I’ve gone from the training cable where I can stand, ride and feel awesome about my great skills, to the main cable where apart from face planting about 6 meters into the lake, I laugh my ass off! It’s great fun, I reckon you should defnitely give it a go.
The second thing I’ve become a bit of a fan of is doing an obstacle course on the lake! Yes you heard right, big blow up obstacles on a lake, where the aim is to get around without falling in unless you jump off or slide in. A great “sport” for big kids like me!
I’m now also a qualified Gym Instructor and a Circuit Trainer and getting closer to my goal of being a Personal Trainer (hopefully by November), so I can help and inspire others on this fitness journey. Yay go me… the certificates are coming in nice and fast and I’m learning so much about the body and how it works, it’s mind blowing.
Finally I tried (don’t tell Tom) Slimming World and in 2 weeks I lost 6lbs… great right! But I tell you what my tummy felt dodgy as hell adding in loads of fruit and carbs again. Secondly, I lost muscle… Yup, only 0.6kg but still it was a slap in the face, my aim is to be strong and lean, for me and my goals, I don’t think this diet worked. So I’ve decided not to continue… I’m going back to just eating clean, upping my protein, fats and veg intake and reducing my sugar intake (although I can’t stop the chocolate, it’s too hard!).
So far, I’ve had an amazing summer and I hope you have too! All I can say is if you feel your life isn’t going the way you want it to go… Then go put yourself out there and do something different. Only you can make life amazing.
