fitness dvds april 2014 A range of dvd’s I like to use as part of my fitness

I’ve been meaning to write this post for about a year. I’ve been exercising over the last 20 years on and off though in the last 2 years I’m so happy that I found ballet fitness and apart from a break 6 weeks ago from it (as I have been spring cleaning my home) I’m now back at it and so happy to be getting fit again.

I’ve been pretty active on and off for years. Though a while ago I stopped doing my fitness and cut back on my permaculture work (lots of active movement there) and I put weight on. I was shocked by how much. So I decided to do something about it. I’ve tried over the years many forms of fitness and doing just one type just bores me senseless. I also didn’t like all the equipment that goes with certain types of exercise and I prefer to workout alone than do group aerobics (in a live class) gyms are a no no (the music drives me nuts) or the idea of a personal trainer.

Busy, Jeez thought I’d never stop!

It’s great when things take off and move; more on why this happened so quickly later…
It’s good to get your feet under and really sort things out

I’ve always been an initiator, I like moving things along and I follow through sometimes it takes a while (lots of patience, faith and being a tad tenacious is important here) Though of late the moving part I don’t really need to do, which in my book is fab as it means a lot less effort on my part. How does it get any better than that? What else is possible?

Got the inspiration for this post from riding my bike the other day, it’s been quite chilly here and for some reason that I don’t quite understand I’ve always like my head covered when it’s cold –  I love hats, all kind of hats, berets are my favourite (note to self – find a shop that sells decent ones.) Maybe my mother instilled this into me when I was little as Scottish winters were sometimes quite fierce.

Me, my Mum and a dog

Lillies in my Kitchen ~ April 2010

I love lillies always have, maybe it’s the fragrance that hangs around my house for days, I can smell the aroma the minute I walk through the front door, it’s very welcoming.

Today has been rather lovely, I spent a lot of it under a tree reading a biography on Rimbaud by Graham Robb in the sunshine, quietly enjoying the first real stirrings of Spring.

I also love riding my lovely bike ( a Marin Point Reyes) as to get to this lovely secluded spot away from noise and people I needed to ride there, so I gathered up the essentials (a book,  a picnic of sandwiches (which funnily enough even had cucumbers in it… how delightfully British of me…) , juice, yogurt and ginger cake)
