The things that matter…

January 10, 2013

At the moment work is taking up the majority of my day and it is also slowly destroying my sole from the inside (to be dramatic). It is just that time of the year. So to not let it get to me I try to focus on the things that matter and make thing easier.

So today’s…
nicest and happiest moment: Morning cuddle with the Mr.
most enjoyable moment: that 45 min intense NIKE killer workout
most peaceful moment: stretching and doing some yoga poses
Most random moment: seeing Nottingham’s youth running around in oncies or short shorts (so short they show half of the bum cheeks…). The whole town was full of them!
most needed moment: that coconut water after my workout
most satisfying moment:to have got all my references for Uni appliactions
Most exciting moment: to hopefully have got a yoga teaching slot at Pole Palais

See life isn’t that bad. Looking at those lovely things in my surrounding makes it possible to go through the tough bits.

It’s never too late…

This BBC article made me smile so much – a 93 year old bodybuilder. Dr Charles Euster started bodybuilding at the age of 87 in order to ‘┬áturn the heads of the sexy young 70-year-old girls on the beach’…

I guess what I wanted to point out with this article is that it is never too late to pick something up, something new in your life or just do something you thought you’d never do. Be inspired of this man, was there something you always wanted to do but never did and now think you’re too old? Perhaps some sport or dance? Well, be inspired by this 93 year old and DO IT! My challenge to myself is to get back into pole, improve and compete within a year. If a 93 year old can be a body builder, then I can compete in pole. I first need to get my confidence back and and (re)learn moves as I’ve had over a years break from it.
