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.

I’ve neglected posting about Gus over the last few months and that will now be addressed
I’ve been so distracted by many other things

Today is international Women’s Day and I’ve posted this everywhere as it’s just so lovely

“Nunca creí en el machismo. Mi mundo está rodeado de mujeres. Todos vivimos gracias a una mujer. Su luz y su vida nos trajo acá, ¿Por qué debería minimizarlas entonces?…Al contrario, son más especiales que nosotros”. (Gustavo Cerati – Diario La Razón 1988)

Sitting here with Paddington Bear at Paddington Station in London I’ve always had a fascination for trains and stations. My favourite station is Paddington. I love the architecture, the expanse of the place and the ambient yet buzzy vibe the place has.
I love watching all the people, busily going from A to B, stopping along the way for a coffee and a bite to eat. Continue reading

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.

Sometimes those damn curve balls drive you crazy, you feel there are no answers to anything, hopelessness, fear, so I asked the question ( I’m all about asking the question as it works. It’s been bothering me a lot, about what to do…. Here is the answer

                                                                                     

This photo was taken in a taxi on the way to work this morning, not being a morning person I watched the bus zoom past me… ooops… oh well. I’ve gone past that a million times and never seen it – funny how things pop up when you need them the most. Love… Jeez I wasn’t expecting that; as being in judgement well it was so much safer –  blame, anxiety, worry, hey isn’t that much more fun!

Simple Good Food ~ Part 1

image

Here is my kitchen, it’s actually quite big as there is a table behind me, there is also a part 2
I love to cook though I have been busy with other things. I have felt inspired of late and have a little more time to cook so here are my efforts. Any decent cook will tell you that having good equipment does help a lot, I don’t need that much, but decent flan dishes, bowls to mix ingredients some good scales, a liquidiser and a blender all help make cooking a meal a lot easier.

Lunch and snacks on any given weekend

Pitta bread– stuffed with fillings

Toast some pitta breads in a toaster my favourite ones are:

Spreads for pittas: Vegan cream cheese, pâté, houmous, egg free mayo
Veggies to add: salad (rocket, watercress, spinach, lettuce) tomatoes, peppers, onion, beetroot, avocado, leeks, onions
Seeds: Roasted Tamari seeds, sunflower, sesame and cashews
Other Ingredients: cooked/tamari tofu, veggie burgers/sausages

I love the pac man way of looking at this… CAP (Courageousness, Acceptance and Peace) the other way is PAC, as that is where you start from.. (when you are hootless) as you start in peace and we all want to be back there.

You can add it to your profile as just Cerati or do what I’ve done as my FB picture is quite long I’m sharing my pic with Gustavo 😀

Nice idea if you have Facebook, it’s called a twibbon a Get well Cerati pic, a show of solidarity for Cerati

On May 15, 2010, Cerati suffered a stroke due to a decompensation after his performance in Caracas, Venezuela. Three days later, according to the Venezuelan media, Cerati underwent surgery to relieve pressure on his brain due to the ischemic stroke he suffered. …On June 27, 2010 the family’s second statement was released, which affirmed that Cerati is receiving good medical care and asked fans to disregard any malicious rumours related to his health. Get Well soon Gustavo!
