Fitness round-up: Girls & football?

You might agree that the perception of girls playing football is still considered as something a bit strange. My dad used to love playing football and I grew up joining him on the pitch many times. I used to love it, but back then it was really odd and maybe impossible for me to take […]

Many of you might be working hard on getting your beach body ready. Isn’t it much easier to get out and work out when the sun is shining? I know we have recently had a few very wet days, but apparently we are going to have a great summer this year, so all your hard […]

Fitness Round-up: Running the London Marathon

On Sunday morning I woke up to a glorious day. I spent most of it watching the updates about the London Marathon with both my girls. It was so emotional for me, and honestly has been every year since I ran it back in 2011. I always cry and feel so proud of all the […]

Fitness Round-up: Motivational March

When it comes to fitness, keeping fit and healthy, many people often ask me where do I get my motivation? There is not a simple or easy answer to that. I believe that different people respond to different things. Even I do not stick to just the same routines and love getting inspired and motivated by […]

How was your holiday? Last week was all about fitness and skiing for me. Every year during the February half-term holiday we fly to spend some time with my family in the Czech Republic. As they live close to the Krusne Hory mountains, we are lucky enough to go skiing with both my girls at […]

Fitness Round-up: New Year new fitness you!

January is well-known for being the month of many new resolutions, and new beginnings. I have to admit that I prefer to make these throughout the whole year, so not many changes for me, but also like the fact that people start thinking about getting more active, fit and healthy. As a keen runner I […]

Fitness Round-up: Keeping fit on holiday

Sticking to your fitness routines over the coming festive period or any big holiday is undoubtedly one of the hardest things. With all the temptations around, it is not easy to follow what you would normally do and go for a run instead of having a glass of mulled wine with a few mince pies. I […]

Fitness Round-up: Fitness fashion for mums

When the air turns much colder, I seem to swap some of my running workouts outside for indoor exercises. One of my old-time favourites are spinning classes at my local leisure centre.  Have you ever tried a spinning class? They are usually fully on, so if you are a beginner, take it easy. Try to […]

September is mostly marked with our children going back to school, and is also a month when many mums start getting back into their fitness routines after a long summer.

Fitness Round-up: Do you believe in fitness myths?

The school holiday is nearly here, maybe your children have already started enjoying the joys of not waking up early and just taking it easy and relax. I love summer holiday as the day after my girls break up, we are booked on a flight back home to the Czech Republic. We tend to spend […]

Fitness Round-up: Get out of your comfort zone!

Cannot believe it’s been a month, and it’s time for another fitness round-up. June is a month I consider the start of summer. It’s true that the weather has not been that great, quite a lot of rain, but it has been quite warm so there’s no reason not to get out and keep active, […]

Fitness Round-up: Is running your cup of tea?

Spring is one of my favourite seasons. I love the smell of flowers in the air, and the fact that more and more people get out and are active. For me nothing can beat a morning run along the local canal, listening to my favourite music and exploring the nature around me. This is the […]

BritMums Expat Round-up: Marathon, toddler or goat?

Running a marathon, eating out with a toddler or milking a goat? Which one would you choose? Last few weeks have been very busy for me, and thanks to moving and not having any Internet at home, I am writing this month’s post only now. Moving is very stressful, and I have not even had […]

Britmums Expat Round-up: Rain, Rain, Go Away!

How typical. Once school holidays start the weather just always get worse. This might be the reason why we have never booked a holiday here in the UK, which I think is a shame as I believe there are so many lovely places. We have been very lucky with the weather in sunny Algarve in […]

BritMums Expat Round-up: Spring is in the air!

As you are reading this post I am probably in the Watford central pool aiming to swim 2.5km (100 lengths) as taking part in the Swimathon and trying to raise £600 for the Team Honk #teamhonkrelay. I was impressed by the support I got on Twitter. So many RTs. If only every RT was £1, […]
