Boot Camp

Brrr it’s zero degrees and I have been spending Tuesday and Thursdays out in the cold. Ok well a bit less dramatic, it has only been for 45 mins each night and safe to say I’ve not felt cold for long! In the sobriety in the start of January, I convinced my mum and sister to join me at … Boot camp, yip, I know, Madness. Complete and utter moment of madness. 6 weeks 3 times a week in the dark and cold doing exercise and not just any excercise but high impact circuits and training. The first session was set as a marker to measure our progress against in 6 weeks time. Jogging, sit ups, push ups, planks, sprints, squats, finished off with a mile run. it was tough going but It’s now week 2 and I feel a difference already. As difficult as it is at the time, the buzz after you push yourself harder than you ever have is great. The Boot Camp is led by Kieran (founder of the New Town Fitness Hub). Kieran runs different boot camps across the city and is also available for personal training. His contact details can be found on the website. new town fitness hub

If you need a kick up the backside to get fit and push you to your goals I would recommend a boot camp class. There is no way I would push myself as much without it. Oh and that buzz I mentioned that happens directly after… It vanishes the next day when every muscle in your body hurts. No pain no gain!

For now and forever

50 shades of the same

Most people love it, some hate it and some have even chosen not to read it. Regardless of opinion Fifty Shades has been a popular talking point over the past months. I read it and this post is only my opinion – thousands possibly millions would disagree.

I got through the first book quickly. Turning page after page, not necessarily gripped by the content, but perhaps hoping the reach the page where the story would finally start. Yes the characters are intriguing and the book is easy to read but to me something was missing. Even although I wasn’t totally gripped I still went on to read the second book. More content and more details of story rather than just sex, i liked this better than the first installment. I downloaded the third book after I had finished. I got the the third chapter then gave up (something i don’t often do). i have no desire to read what predictable dramas or sex positions Anna and Christian go through to reach their happily ever after.

The trilogy is easy to read and has clearly captured peoples imaginations. The hype and flurry has resulted in a large number of ladies all over the world reading, perhaps something they didn’t take the time to do before. Its given us time out, time to escape the world and something a little naughty to talk about. Even although I don’t completely understand the hype i am looking forward to the movie and continue to wonder who will play the elusive Mr Grey.

I’m off to escape in my birthday gift and discover how to make my millions with Mr Duncan Bannatyne.

For now and forever
