Run Free!

 “Run Free, Run Jozi”

On Wednesday 21st March 2012 Nike put together a night run through the streets of Johannesburg South Africa. The hype around it was amazing, everyone one I know was talking about it and all were so excited to get involved.

After the race I didn’t see once facebook status that was negative, no one was even commenting on how tied they were that they had just done a 10km race, they were all pumped with so much adrenaline, the support for the race was huge, over 10 000 people took part in it and people not running took to the street to support, they decorated their houses, danced, sang and cheered all the runners on!

A nation came together that night and for a moment there was nothing negative to say about joburg (The crime capital of the world) there was no difference in anyone that night, every ethnic group came together and a rainbow nation came alive!

I’ve never felt more home sick then I did that night, being so far away here in London all I wanted to do was be involved.

So I have decided to see if there is not a way we could try organize a Run London! There are so many different cultures in London, lets join them all together and for one day be one! Unite together as one and get everyone to take away the labels and all be Londoners, lets get London pumped for the 2012 Olympics!

I don’t know how I’m going to put this all together but watch this space!

We’re going to RUN LONDON!

A simple yet YUMMY snack!

I have been on the search for a quick and easy snack to take to work that I could nibble on in the afternoon. I was taking a few small things but noticed that I was always looking for more. Not really a huge meal but little things that I could snack on over a longer period of time.

SNAP PEAS AND HUMMUS is the answer!

It’s really simple, and I promise you its really tasty! I can’t believe how much flavour they have when you put them together.

It’s also so much better for you then the chips and chocolates we all tent to sneak in at least once a week.

Exciting times ahead!

 On some of my previous post I mentioned that I was looking to make a change in my working career and that I was going to studying!

Well over the last few months a lot has changed, I have enrolled in an online learning course that focuses on web development, learning everything from HTML to Java and also covers some design elements like photoshop.

 I have had a bit of a slow start but I’m sure from next week I can really put some time aside to learning as much as I can.

On another interesting note I am also looking to change careers, and somehow this amazing opportunity has presented itself, tomorrow night I will be meeting with a potentially new employee, so very exciting times ahead.

One thing that has taken a little of a back seat is my training and gym time. With all these new things on my plate I’m finding it much harder to make time for the gym and due to this my healthy diet had also seem to have flown out the window! Trying to learn how to juggle all these new aspects of my life is proving to be quiet difficult but it’s all about learning so I’m sure I will be able to structure it all back into place soon.

Fashion

 Who decides what’s fashionable or not?

I really want to have a word with them, because I really don’t feel that skinny jeans makes anyone look good unless you’re a size 2 with no hips or ass and have never done any sport in your life so that your calf muscles are super small.

I have been out shopping and must of tried on 100 pairs and none of them look good.

I have however found the best alternative, they look like skinnies to most people but don’t squeeze the life out of you. It’s almost guaranteed not to make you muffin top!!!

They are called straight cut Jeans, TRY THEM!!!!!

Getting back on track

This year has started off very bumpy, my personal trainer moved back to Brazil and since then I have found it hard to get back into the swing of things. I also went home for a few weeks in February and found myself eating out every lunch and dinner. Now trying to eat right again is proving to be very difficult.

I have tried everything to get back into it but nothing seems to work. I have gone from going to gym every day to maybe twice a week.

Does anyone have any suggestions that would help me get back on track?
