Self Love

‘This is not a ‘pity me’ post – or me asking you to say you like me – this is me just sharing how my brain works – hope this makes sense!’

I touched on this a while back on an Instagram post – but that was more about accepting myself physically, this blog post is covering my issues with accepting or liking/loving myself mentally.

A Treat of a Trip to Tring

I was very lucky two weeks ago to go to Champneys Spa in Tring, courtesy of Champneys and Vitality – and it came at just the right time, the Saturday after I completed my Level 3 Personal Training course!

Now the reason for this wonderful treat is actually because I’m very excitingly going to be working with Vitality on their #WomenInSport Campaign, and it was at this event I got to meet some of the other lovely female bloggers who are also getting involved! I met Georgina, Terri, Sophie, Katrina, Laura and Charlotte – the other ladies taking part who couldn’t be there on the day are Lucy and Tess – please check out all their journeys too!

A group of people living in the same place or having a particular characteristic in common.

– Oxford English Dictionary

In this instance, it’s a group of people having a particular characteristic in common – which is a love for being physically active and sharing it with others, even if occasionally we might embarrass ourselves doing it (ok, that might just be me) and that’s the ethos and plan of Decathlon (to share physical activity with others, not embarrass ourselves – that’s purely a personal choice, or can’t be helped in my case).
