Week 2 - 2015

Hello beautiful people**!

A little update on the New Year,perhaps the gist of it has been work and home,been battling with my recovery after training so reckon it's time to go see my doc to get my iron levels checked and make sure all is in order..

Pics below are from the ride we did on Saturday with some awesome people with big hearts and strong minds, I sadly couldn't finish the tough ride set out as I lost strength in the ride but twas still awesome spending time on the bike and the biggest thing,realising something is not right,will give an update after my meet with my doc today.

In other news,it's a new week,a new chance to try harder,do more,push your limits  and an opportunity to say no to one more thing that isn't good for you ;)

Make it happen **!

Happy you.. Happy New Year.. Merry Christmas.. Catch up :)


So this post was supposed to go out last week but i battled with network a little while in KZN and changed phones and the whole drama but here we are :)

I hope you had the most amazing festive season, with all the people you love and lots of quality time.

I came across a say which pretty much defined my Christmas and New Year --->



Holiday to do 

1. Be Present
2. Wrap Someone in a hug
3. Send Peace
4. Donate Food
5. Make Love
6. Be the Light

The new year has been beautiful, its raining as i write.. i'm excited for everything the year ahead has in store for me, good or bad, there's always a treasure to discover - be it about yourself or those around you. I have no New Years resolutions but realize that my Christmas Mantra will be my years Mantra, I want to be more of all that, all the time.

As well, i realize that I want and need to give more.. Qhubeka--->
qhubeka.org/givehope/ has touched my heart so deeply especially last year in what they do in changing our tomorrow.. the only way we can change our country and our future is investing in the children, their education.. Qhubeka is an organisation that helps get kids bicycles to commute to school so they don't have to walk 10km's or more to school.. the kids are then able to focus once at school and in turn being able to grow and learn and be and change their tomorrow, in effect changing their communities.. my heart for this cause.. i need to do more to get involved here.. in anyway i can, that's my hearts desire for 2015.

Anyway.. here's a million pics from the KZN miles... family miles and just the blessing that it is to live, to breath, to be. I battled to caption them all, but i guess they all are one word, Love.



My gogo's garden.. love it*

Absolutes..

So the past week was rather interesting.. i was doing great on the 'consistency' train on the bike, then my train broke down.. i don't know what happened but it got me thinking about Absolutes.. do they even exist? Yes the hours allocated for training are absolutes.. work is an absolute but surely there should be some give to the expectation.. I realized i very much love red wine but am not quite enjoying it at the moment, unsure if its just cause i battle to down it or the morning after feeling.. when my training is compromised because i feel like hell.. off 1 glass of wine.. weak :(

I then decided, instead of beating myself up over sessions not done, i could find happiness and respite in the fact that though i wasn't consistent on the bike, i ran.. and ran.. and ran.. I've never felt stronger in my run.. it felt like that's exactly where i had to be where the air in my lungs broke into the biggest feeling of being alive... steady ...not the fastest and just not pushing too hard.. absolutes.. i realize that my absolute is keeping fit, being healthy, living life and just being present in the moment.. its being consistent with moving.. and breathing and pushing boundaries.. it need not be in one particular discipline.. just the moving.. and breathing and pushing boundaries..

Blessed, 

Some pics from the past week as i enjoy being present in every moment..my greatest blessing being an aunt.. a sister and a friend.. Happy new week good people**!
