How’s your August going? Have you managed to find sunshine and long, lazy afternoons? Hope so!
It’s fun to mix things up a bit so I thought it was time for another Random Enthusiasm post where I share some of the stuff that has been making me happy lately. Join the fun and jump in with your comments and suggestions below.
Strawberries & Raspberries - now is the time to enjoy these sun-sweetened berries while they’re in season! Delicious as a zingy salad topping and even nicer with some crushed meringue and natural Greek yogurt. I must remember to buy a glut of them and freeze for winter. Handy for year round Strawberry Mojitos, yum!
Upping the ante…. whatever your level why not try taking things up a notch to see if you can push yourself a tiny bit more? A longer run, a faster walk, a new yoga class? Even the smallest increase will help you feel excited and proud of your workout and who couldn’t do with a bit of that!
The Affair and Bloodline are my latest guilty pleasures! I’ve been totally hooked on these series lately. Both have tense, twisty storylines, are excellently cast and beautifully shot. Give them a go, you won’t be disappointed.
Great for increasing strength and flexibility, Mat Pilates classes are kicking off this week in the newly refurbished Pilates Movement studio in Dun Laoghaire. With classes every day and at all levels it’s easy to find one to suit you. Check out the timetable for more info.
Looking for some chilled out music for your home yoga practice or some pumping tunes to keep you going on your next run? I’ve been making playlists on Spotify lately, for free! They have a huge song database to choose from and you can upgrade to a monthly subscription for more features. Warning… this may awaken your inner rock chick or 80’s diva!
Enjoy the rest of August and have fun with your own random happy stuff!
