One of the things I mentioned in my post about the Lyke Wake Walk in relation to getting my body ready for the challenge hike, was a squat challenge. It all started when I saw SportSeeker Melissa (@Meli770) mention over on twitter that she was doing a 30 day squat challenge. I am constantly inspired
One of the biggest challenges I have set myself this year is to complete the Lyke Wake Walk. I shall be doing the walk in June with a couple of other blogger friends who also love to hike. Why? Because it sounds like fun – we want to do it and we think we can.
I always find February an inspiring month. Lots of people I know are making real strides towards their goals for the year – some are marathon training, some have booked amazing trips, some are telling me about adventures they are embarking on, some have started new jobs, some are moving home, and some are doing all
There is something inspiring about a new year. We might be a couple of weeks in now, but the idea of setting goals and resolutions for the next 12 months is still at the forefront of my mind. I’m still considering carefully what that might mean for me; I want to set a series of
Despite 2014 looking like an incredibly busy year, back in February I was inspired by a number of people to make a short list of goals and challenges I would like to achieve in 2014. As we are currently working our way through the very last day of the year, and because I just managed to make a
Life is all about the journey. The challenge is to make the most of each day, to spend time learning, experiencing and trying.

Hostelling International are once again giving 16 passionate bloggers the
Now that 2014 is well under way I thought it was about time that I gave some real thought to what my goals for the year should be. The reason I am doing this now is because I have been incredibly inspired by a few people I follow on twitter. Inspired to consider what my
I received an email earlier in the week from Lastminute.com with a little challenge… they asked me to write a blog post about the most spontaneous thing I’ve ever done. Yea I know they asked with the motive of me promoting something they’ve got going on at the moment (more on that at the end),
Today I have mostly been sat on my sofa, nursing sore knees and a sore back, moping a bit. Yesterday was the annual Spires and Steeples Challenge, a fantastic local running and walking event taking people from Lincoln to Sleaford via lots of lovely Lincolnshire villages along riverside paths, through farms, along country lanes and
A couple of weeks ago I introduced Britain’s Personal Best here on Splodz Blogz; a scheme aiming to recapture the motivation created by London 2012 by encouraging us to challenge ourselves. My personal challenge, the thing that Britain’s Personal Best inspired me to do, was to ride a horse. Relatively simple compared to many of
A few weeks ago I posted on twitter and facebook asking for to do list inspiration. I felt like giving my list a bit of an update – it’s time to add some things to it to give me new motivation. And (naturally) you didn’t disappoint! I already had some notes things I’ve thought of
What were you doing 30 years ago? How have you changed in the last 30 years? Well I know I’ve changed quite a bit… although some tell me I’m still recognisable. 30 years ago I was just three years old, so the fact I’ve changed a lot since then is probably a very good thing!
