The Race For Life

Just four weeks from now and I will be doing the Race for Life.

I’ve been training! I’m currently about half way there, but that’s just walking. I’m thinking now I’d like to jog a little. I will see how it goes. My health varies on a day to day basis, some days I’m ok, some I’m not. I’ve just endured four nightmare days and now I’m wondering how on earth I will cope if I’m really ill by the time the race comes around?

 I’m committed now, I have to do it no matter what. 

So, how has my training plan gone so far?

Well, I’ve been drinking more water. A simple step but something that so many of us don’t do enough of. Keeping yourself hydrated is very important. My goal is eight glasses a day. Sometimes I don’t manage that, but now that I’m trying to be more aware, I am drinking more than before.

I have my new trainers. Not always necessary, in fact generally it’s more comfortable to train in your old faithfuls. However, it’s always nice to receive a little incentive and a nice new pair of trainers has had me wanting to go out more to try them out.

I have a Fit Bug. Again, not a necessity but it is recording all my activity for me. I’ve only been using it a couple of days so I can’t comment too much, but it’s always nice to have something that encourages you on your way.

I’ll also be starting on Kiqplan very soon, which is an online program to help to train for races like this. Kiqplan also do programs for slimming, and getting rid of baby tums or beer bellies.

Two weeks ago I buried another family member lost to Cancer.
Hell hath no fury like a woman in pink!
Take a moment to sponsor me and let fight this awful disease together!
Thank you x

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay

Some people only write reviews when things go wrong with products, which is good because it lets people know that there could be potential problems. I’ve also seen negative feedback with say things like, I had to return this item because the colour did not suit me…is this useful?

I write reviews on most items I buy because I like to give genuine feedback. If I have a genuine problem with a product I will write my review in the appropriate place.

I write reviews on my blog too, but they are mostly positive. Why? Because I only write reviews for the things I’ve loved. If I don’t love them I let the person who sent me them know with details why and then let them decided if they would rather me write a negative review or not write one at all. It’s always the latter.

This is my blog, my place and I’ll let you know about the things I love. If you want to find out what other people have hated about the product then you will need to look elsewhere.

My reviews may all be positive, but they are still genuine.
