Feeling happy and exhausted after finishing Friday afternoon HIIT. 5 days of mindful eating this week has been good, (apart from a few minor slip ups), I’m feeling better after making healthier choices throughout the day and keeping up the water 💦. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Thanks #activetruth for my beautiful new ‘Marble’ tights - I’m absolutely loving them 😘

First rehab session in the gym ✔️ so happy to be getting back into training again. Can’t wait to get my butt kicked @kettlefit tomorrow and jump on my bike again. Maybe a little yoga too (with my puppacinos climbing all over me) to help my body deal with the increase in training volume after taking it very easy for a week and half. No running for a while yet but slow progress is better than no progress. 👊🏻
Happy Friday 💃🏼
We hear so much about the benefits of improving cognition and concentration and being able to focus on and dominate the task in hand. All very powerful, motivating stuff!
The reality is we are not machines.
Yes, the ability to focus on a task that must be completed is a given. How can we get to the best end result if we’re applying only a part of ourselves?
The brain is an infinitely elastic, fantastically complex organ. On occasions daydreaming and allowing our minds to wander, moving in space and time as well as into the minds of others allows us to forge connections between pieces of information we don’t link up when we’re too focused.
The skill is knowing when each approach is required.
