Well I think August has decided to fry most of us! It is currently boiling here and it’s early morning so goodness knows how hot it will be by midday.
Are you a lover of the heat? I have to say I’m not. I like it warm but hot weather just tires me. But I promise you I am not complaining. However I would like a thunderstorm just to clear the air.
So what has August been like for you? Apart from being hot I mean.
I have started a new hobby which is running – yes I am that crazy person you’ll see out at stupid o’clock. By following couch to 5K it helps to plan your runs and you can choose the motivational coach that you like. Plus I am always pleased to hear that little voice in my headphones saying good job! If you haven’t got it downloaded then here is the link https://fave.co/3ivUima
Give it a go you might find, like me, that you enjoy it. Although be warned you will be addicted. And that’s from a non runner.
Another tip if you do decide to start running is to listen to music. I started out without any and it was hard going but now I have my new headphones and play my favourite songs. This really helps the time to pass and keeps you motivated.
I would recommend getting wireless headphones as they are much easier to manage. These are the ones I have
However a quick search on Ebay or Amazon and you will find lots of others available.
The other thing that I hadn’t realised I needed was socks! Seems an obvious thing but I don’t like socks that show above my trainers. So I invested in some great quality trainer socks. Ebay and Amazon are again your friends in finding these.
Oh and last but not least, and ladies I am talking to you, is a good sports bra. Not having one before I never knew how important this was until I tried running without one. That was a bad day!!!! I highly recommend the Shock Absorber range of bras. They are comfortable, supportive and easy to care for. All you could ever need in a good bra really.
Here is the link to their site. Just so you know I don’t earn commission from this link.
As always I like to be forward thinking so today I would like to end with my plans for the rest of the month.
I am looking forward to having some more days out with the family, although Mr Cash Mum is back at work next week so it’ll probably mean just me and the children. But then there is always the weekends.
August also means I am also looking forward to getting more items out on my Facebook page. So if you are looking for gifts then check out http://www.facebook.com/sparklinggifts2
Finally please stay safe in the sun and be sensible. It might be tempting to go to the beach but Covid19 is still about so please make sure you social distance and wear a mask where appropriate.
