The Importance of Love - Love me like you do



Before I start this post I need a disclaimer:

  1. I have not read 50 shades of grey nor watched the movie
  2. that really is not my scene
  3. but I really love the Ellie Goulding song
  4. #nojudgement #dontcare


Moving on.

The importance of love! In the spirit of Valentines Day and all that gushing, smooching, mushing stuff this post is for the love of my life.

I have said it before, and he really is the love of my life. 4 years ago I would have told you that a man like him doesn’t exist. That I was meant to be on my own. That no one would ever understand me.

Then Rob came along and literally rocked my little world. He is the most down to earth guy you will ever meet. He is non judgmental, will never say a bad thing about anyone and will go above and beyond for his friends and family. He is probably freaking out reading this post. But its all true.

As we lead up to our wedding day and with all the planning and prepping and fun stuff one thought really sticks in my mind – forever.

Forever I will have someone who loves me unconditionally.

Forever I will have someone who always has my back no matter what.

Forever I will have someone  who is my biggest cheerleader and my best friend.

And that is what I am most looking forward to. Marriage. Love. Forever.

The Importance Of Love

Never forget the importance of love and the impact it can have on your healthy and happiness!

I'm Stuck in a Funk!

So anyone reading or follow my blog will know that I have been exceptionally quiet these last few months. And anyone who knows me in real life would know – quiet and me are not really compatible.

I have been a bit in a funk lately, one that I am haven’t really been able to get out of. I am not really sure what its all about.

At first I thought it was all the training leading up to my first 21km that I just needed a break. Then I thought it was December holidays and training is hard when wine in the summer sun tastes so good. Then the new year started and I had all these big plans for a fresh start and then work got in the way and getting back on track was more about getting to bed early and getting myself out of bed in the mornings in time for work each day.

Whatever the reasons, as Rob put it, its February now and this year has started and this funk needs to funkity funk off right about now.  I can't stay stuck in a funk. I need to get back to training ASAP.

Last week was my first week that I stayed true to my training plan. And it was hard. I hurt in muscles I didn’t know I had. My legs cramped and my race pace sucked. In general most would say last week was a bad week – but for me it was a new beginning, it was a start, it was the light at the tunnel that I needed to feel – to know that I have felt this all before and that I have and will overcome it all again.

I have booked myself up with races every week till mid March, so that I cant back down and give up.
