5KMs In The Bag

So I did the Spar ladies challenge. I did 5kms in 42 minutes on a cold Saturday and best of all a kind man gave me a boerewors roll, when I searched for food and accidentally gatecrashed their company team building. It was a good achievement, my third race. I'm looking forward to doing 5kms, 10kms and 20kms. I'll leave the Comrades up in the air for now.

I cut out sugar for at least a month but over the past week or two, I have slipped into some old bad habits. I recommend checking out I Quit Sugar. The book is written by Sarah Wilson. She has a website you can get recipes and a health challenge that you can sign up for, which are costly but she has a lot of success stories and has done extensive research into the harm that sugar causes.

My workout buddies

My friends and I do weekly workouts (in theory but we(read them) cancel quite often).

We do a routine that we watch on YouTube by Chloe Ting (

If you want to get fit and don't have a gym subscription, this is a perfect way to get in shape. You can do most of the exercises without any equipment. There are no excuses not to do exercise (no rain, no darkness, no gym fee). The only thing I suggest is that you use a yoga mat, if you don't have one you could use a camping mat or a normal mat. The workouts are generally short (from 6- 30 mins) and focus on different areas of your body.

I am learning to think differently about health and exercises. The threat Diabetes and other complications as a result of sugar and poor eating are big.

Health Journey

I have started a health journey.

One where I cut out sugar.

I have been following IQS...

Have done very well in the past werk and now I need to work on meal preparation and cutting down on gluten/white bread.

What's equally important for both my mental and physical help is exercise. I have been jogging. 1Km runs.

The Spar Ladies race is coming up and I would really like to do it. It's on the 6h of may. Which is in 3/4 weeks. I need to start running 2kms to prepare.

Well I'm watching a movie at the moment and I need to run along since I want to go to bed soon.

"We keep moving forward"- Walt Disney

Things are changing in my life.

I want this blog to become more of a focus in my life- as I have wanted for so many years.

My time at my current job is almost over. And although this is an extremely difficult patch for me, in some ways I am relieved.

I feel like this is the time for real growth in my life and to become what I have really want to become. Which is some role in Fashion/Media/Travelling

These are things I enjoy. I'm on a very bumpy road to self discovery. It hasn't been easy over the past couple of weeks. Especially when you're missing a few people on the journey.

One of my best friends and I are not talking and it is hard. I have been far too proud to send her a message and it's silly... I should reach out to her.

On a positive note. My mom and I have had a very rewarding conversation and I feel very happy.
