Before visiting LA, I was convinced that one day I’d find myself living in New York. You can read my post about my latest trip to New York here to find out why I love it so much. But after spending some time in California, I am 99.9% certain that I should have been born somewhere along the West Coast.

Can you believe that November is here already! I have been so inconsistent with blogging recently but my blogs third Birthday is approaching and I feel inspired and motivated to start posting regularly again. Starting with a round up of all my most recent travels and the first stop is New York.

In around 10 weeks time I  become a qualified personal trainer! As someone who has a huge interest in fitness and a fitness blog, I think it’s important to have a qualification because people use social media accounts such as mine as a means for workout inspiration. And if you come to my channels looking for a workout to inspire your own, I want to make sure that the information I am giving you is correct.

I knew that I could run a PB and when I woke up in the morning I felt like I could do it, so I did.

My half marathon journey begun last year at the Royal Parks Half Marathon in London. I didn’t enjoy it but I ran another half marathon shortly after. Although I enjoyed that one a little bit more…I vowed to never run a 13.1mile race again. Fast forward to present day and I have just completed my 4th and fastest half marathon and I am on the look out to complete another one, and another one until I reach my goal time.

I think we all suffer from the dreaded “afternoon slump” at least twice during the working week. I’m usually hit with it badly if I’ve trained at 6:30am but didn’t sleep get much sleep the night before. As soon as the clock strikes 3pm, I struggle to keep my eyes open. And sometimes I don’t even make it to 3pm before that feeling hits! Although I am coffee drinker, I limit myself to just a few a week. So what do I do when deadlines are creeping closer and I’m still at the top of my to do list? Reach for the sugar. We naturally crave sugar when we’re tired and many of us reach for sweets or biscuits for an energy boost. But with these kind of sugar highs comes the lowest of lows and sometimes you feel even worse than before.

Last week Seasonal Berries challenged me to swap all my afternoon snacks for berries, as part of their Berries Not Biscuits campaign, to help me to have a more productive working week.

Building gym confidence is a something that I get asked about quite frequently. The gym can sometimes be a daunting and intimidating place. Even for myself, a seasoned gym goer. I’ll let you in on a little secret, it has taken me years to summon up the courage to train in just a sports bra. In the past I didn’t feel toned enough and thought I’d look better in one if I had cheese grateable abs. But the funny thing is, I’m currently not as ripped as I used to be, yet I am comfortable in just a sports bra. So whats changed? My mindset.

I think at one point of another, every runner has fallen out of love with running. Sometimes it’s due to an injury. More often than not it’s simply because you’ve got bored of it. You no longer feel inspired to pound the pavements and you haven’t hit a PB in a while either. It’s happened to me before and I’m sure even elite athletes will admit that sometimes their heart just isn’t in it. But just because one day the love for running that you once had feels like it’s starting to fade, doesn’t mean that you’re going to lose it completely. It’ll come back with vengeance and here are a few tips on how to fall back in love with running.
