6 Active Date Ideas

date ideas
When I first started seeing Karn, one of my favourite things was the adventure dates he would plan for us. It was such a nice change from the old meal or drinks-related date ideas (although we’ve had a lot of those too!) and a really great way to get to know each other outside of the ‘usual’ date situations. It was also an excellent way to test whether he was brave enough to tackle my overly-competitive nature. [side note: thankfully he was.]

Last-Minute City2Surf Tips

City2Surf
I don’t know how it happened, but the City2Surf is only five days away. Given that my preparation in 2016 has consisted mainly of eating croissants and ice cream in Paris and drinking hot coffee/chocolate/tea/anything-to-keep-warm in Iceland, I have a feeling this is not going to be the year I set a PB. In fact, for the first time in a long time, I’m mildly concerned about making it to the finish line with my body in one piece.

As far as memories-everyone-can-relate-to go, I would put it right up there on the same level as the Home Ice Cream van, Art Attack and coloured zinc cream.

Are You Moving Enough?

Exercise

Last week I wrote a post titled Things Fit People Do Differently, and number one on the list was that ‘they find reasons to move, instead of excuses not to’. The more I thought about it, there more I realised how important this tip was, but also how vague – particularly for people who aren’t used to looking for reasons or ways to move. So I’ve decided to expand on it, with some more simple exercise tips that will  help you to add more movement to your life.
