Well folks, how has your week been so far? We have made it to Thursday, only a night to go and its the weekend. What do you have planned? Are you doing anything exciting, or fun? Or maybe you are just going to ground with a good book, sometimes, for me going to ground is simply the best, a time to renew, recharge and relax, to get ready for whatever is coming at us in life. Let me know what you get up to, and whatever you are doing, enjoy yourself, life isn't a dress rehearsal.
Favourite things for this week ...
This book is a must, you gotta check it out. The stories are fascinating, and its really cool to listen to some of the songs after having read about them knowing why they were written.
I've been jazzing up my exercise routine, with this awesome dvd. There is only so much Day 1 - legs, Day 2 - upper body, and Fat Burning Cardio aka interval running on a treadmill, a girl can take in rotation - don't get me wrong, these are great workouts, but not 24/7/365!
If we don't give our muscles variety, they get lazy, if we don't give our mind variation we get bored. So to this end to stop the boredom setting in, I have been trying out some other forms of exercise, and the dance cardio on this DVD is really amazing, I cannot recommend it, or the matt workout dvd it enough. Seriously the results I have seen in just a few days of doing this are fantastic.
You can even watch some of Tracey's videos on youtube, from your phone making it the perfect way to get a little workout fitted in, when you don't have time to hit the gym, or take them to the gym with you to perk up your normal workout. Let me know how you get on, I am always keen to hear what workout tips you have, or what types of exercise you have been doing that work really well, and get great results.
I discovered this blog lastweek when it's writer started following me on twitter, I have been inspired, and touched by the things he writes. His latest post, is really inspiring for all you girls out there, waiting for a guy to really love you. Keep writing Mike, I can't wait to read what you have to say next.
Do you guys use TED? If not head over there right now, and check it out. My friend Marian told me about it a couple of years ago, and I was hooked immediately. This week, I am absolutely loving this song by Jackson Browne. It reminded me to be thankful for where I am at any given moment, rather than wishing I was somewhere else, to be truly present in what I am doing, trying to make a difference in the world that I am in. Whatever you are up to be happy where you are, be mindful of everything that is happening and enjoy it for what it is.
I've been listening non stop to this album since I bought it on Monday. Alison and Union Station's music, bring me space to breathe, to listen and dream. This album has already become a firm favourite, and I know I will listen to it for years to come.
Tell me, what are some of your favourite things this week...
that's it for now
