After my running ambassadors constantly asking for Shoe Tags … I have finally got my act together and made some. Of course this came out of the need for a bit of extra motivation for myself, with the CrossFit Open starting this week. I thought a glance down mid workout might be a little extra inspiration to get me through the next 5 weeks.
these are the tags I have chosen to remind me to go a bit harder, when I feel like stopping
I have added these to the website now. You will find them here I have created the listing as a Custom Made option, then instead of me trying to think of what everyone would like … people have the option of adding exactly what they are needing to help keep them motivated.
I truely believe surrounding yourself with positive affirmations is super important … so this is just another way to do this. Hope you love them as much as I do xxxx
I was intending on writing this post once we returned from holidays … now it is February and I am trying to find my feet with school back, and routine having kicked back in.
I’ll be honest I was a little concerned about having 2 1/2 weeks off training when I went on holiday. I love my life and what I do, I love my training … so although I was excited to go on holidays, I knew I would miss it too. It is really good for your body to have a break from what you do all the time. And even though I wasn’t lifting weights, I was out behind the boat every day waterskiing, wakeboarding, wake skating and trying new things out. It was super fun, and I think it is important to “Use Your Fitness”. Having a strong, healthy body is awesome, but putting it to use doing fun things is what life is all about. I think the Christmas break is the perfect time for me to have a refresh and a change of routine. We were staying on the Murry River and the little town only had a corner store and pub, which was perfect, as I am not very good at relaxing, so it made it easier for me to really enjoy my holiday.
so … my message is, enjoy your training and exercise … but use it to live and be happy too. Try new things and enjoy life! One of my goals this year is to make sure I do more fun things throughout the year that “Use Your Fitness”
Depending on the Ph of your skin, jewellery can tarnish very quickly – regardless of weather it is sterling silver, pewter, stainless steel …. and if you are like me and “high maintenance” then my advice to you is to keep a jewellery cleaning cloth with you in your bag to polish your pieces up with.
This month our readers get a FREE cleaning cloth with every purchase. You need to leave a comment when checking out and say “Free cleaning cloth” so we know you have been reading
Here is a tip for cleaning the pewter charms:
Use a sponge to gently wash the pewter piece and rinse. Dry and set aside. in a mixing bowl add one teaspoon salt, one cup white vinegar and half cup of flour. Mix slowly until paste is formed. Use this as the cleaner.
For sterling silver:
Mix 1 cup of boiling water, 1 tablespoon salt and 1 tablespoon baking soda together. Then pour into a foil lined pan – add your jewellery. Slowly add 1/2 cup of vinegar and watch it do its magic. Let it sit for 5-10 mins – rinse and dry.
