January Affirmations | I will not be defeated. 
No new year’s resolutions here… just complete focus.

January Affirmations | I will not be defeated. 

No new year’s resolutions here… just complete focus. 

January Affirmations | I am determined. 
Forget new years resolutions, only 8% of people succeed in achieving them. I’m all for January being a new start to a more positive outlook on life and the beginning of any kind of transformation - regardless of whether it’s your end goal or not. Change needs to happen in everyone’s life, every year, and those with health related goals are not the only ones making changes. 
Instead of making new years resolutions, I’ve made January affirmations, that can only get stronger, bigger and better as the year progresses.

You don’t have to be a bendy, vegan, saint. Yoga is the great equaliser, everyone has the same struggle on the mat and no one should feel excluded.

Hot & Sweaty! …Hello Bikram! 
I remember going to Bikram yoga every week when I lived in Brisbane. My friend Mel and I would sweat it out for 90 minutes, walk out feeling the most amazing natural high and then go home to watch Prison Break. It was kinda my favourite day of the week.
Well after many years, I’m making a return to it and have signed up to the Intro offer at Hot Bikram Yoga to get back into it, attending 20 consecutive days of hot sweatiness and feel great again!
What do I want to get out of it?
Detox. I’m going to complement my daily practice with clean eating, absolutely no refined sugars, no caffeine (except from my green tea), and definitely no alcohol.
Mental clarity and focus. Nothing can achieve this better than an energising sweat session, concentrating on the practice and meditation. This will hopefully bring more mental alertness to my work and home life. 
Burn, baby, burn. I’m looking forward to a bit of a boost, to feeling energised and kickstarting the fat burn missing from my workouts lately. 
So here we go! 20 Consecutive Days of getting Hot & Sweaty!

Get Up. Get Out. Get Running. 

Today was my first run since moving back to London. I don’t know why but I was really nervous about it. I felt like a first timer again, as if I didn’t know the person I was before - running as part of my daily commute being slightly different to those midday runs on country roads. But somehow, once I was out there, I just totally forgot that I was running and the kms went by underfoot seemingly without much effort. I was so much more motivated than I was on any run in Norfolk. It was overall quite slow, but so enjoyable… and since I got lost twice, I think time will only improve as I get to know my new neighbourhood better. 

Thinking about doing Parkrun this weekend. 

I think I have caught that running bug again. 

Dear London | A Letter to the City I Love

Since moving back to you, I want you to know I expect from you the same things that I expect from myself. I expect you to up your game, be more fun, go the extra mile and be better and sweatier than you have ever been before.

London, you and I are going to be spending dates together at yoga studios all over you, and when my knee has returned to its former glory, we will run all over your parks. Don’t be upset when I bring my friends to get sweaty. You’ll love it. 

Plans are in place for a Sweaty September of Bikram Yoga, Hot Yoga, Power Yoga, Pilates, Cardio-lates, and lots of little blog posts about it all as I transition back to full time work, balancing fun, finances and fitness. 

Let’s do this! I love you!

SweatNSass Motto for the Week | “I speed up for hills” 
I’ve made it my goal this week that during every run, regardless of pace and distance, if there are hills, I will speed up for them. No matter how fast I’m already going, I will go faster. No matter how steep, how big, how short… one by one, hills and I are going to get friendly! 
I also read a great quote over the weekend… if you never go fast, how can you ever expect to get faster? 
Make it your goal this week to fit in a speed run, push your pace, squeeze out every last bit! What are you saving your energy for anyway? You can refuel at the end of the run. Make every last bit count!

Hello GoPro!

Some more photos snapped at the Color Run UK in London earlier in July, courtesy of my friend at Flashlight TV who let me use their GoPro!

Fun times, and now I find out about the Holi Festival in London in a couple of weekend’s time! Looks like fun… but no running. So I think I’ll give it a miss this time… Bikram Yoga is calling me!
