#SixBalancedWeeks – Fitness & Wellbeing Challenge

 

 

FitnessNovember is here, the days are increasingly dark and chilly and all you want to do is snuggle up to a warm fireplace and eat winter pies with mulled wine in hand.  I know the feeling.  Although Christmas is my favourite time of year in some aspects, winter is largely categorised with wardrobe struggles, not enough coats and the dreaded winter flu-like symptoms. Quite frankly, the prospect of squeezing into some lycra and heading to work up a sweat is somewhere near the bottom of my priority pile around about now.

However thinking back to the sunnier days of July, I made a big decision (and a dent in my bank account) and decided to spend my first Christmas away from home, away from England and away from the northern hemisphere when I booked flights to Sydney, Australia. At the time, I was in full outdoors exercise swing, loving spending evenings in the parks and days outside working out, and was fully convinced that I would totally be in the best shape ever before getting in my Christmas day outfit, otherwise known as a bikini.

Yet somehow my love of cookies, partying and lack of desire to freeze on a daily basis have set me way off balance, so it is time to throw myself head first into a challenge to regain balance, prioritise my health, fitness and nutrition again and step on that plane feeling the best version of myself.

#SixBalancedWeeks

Six BALANCED weeks. Focusing on mental wellbeing as well as physical fitness, I will be covering all aspects of the challenge here on the blog and on Instagram @balancedbeingfit

I shall be making the most of the city, collaborating with some of my favourite people along the way and finding out more about some cool brands.  And more than anything, I want YOU to get involved. The challenge isn’t about restriction – it’s about fun, finding your own balance and feeling good in yourself!

So stay tuned, drop me an email and get in touch if you’re up for #sixbalancedweeks at balancedbeingteam@outlook.com
