🏃 🏃 Regaining my fitness Week 11 and Week 12 update
Where are the weeks going to? If any one can figure that humdinger out, please send me a postcard to: Mr Ablaze, My House, Ireland Time is flying in and I missed last week's update, so in an effort to catch up on myself, I'm going to do a two for one effort here by cramming week 11 and week 12 into one post. I started out on this road at the start of January, and to be totally honest about it, I thought that by now life and its hecticness would have curbed my new found fitness regime. Over the weeks, there have definitely been a few times, particularly first thing in the morning at around 6:15am, that for want of a better phrase, "I couldn't be arsed!" But I managed to get past that little lazy thought and just jump out of bed and get stuck straight into the morning session. The fact that I am still going strong coming towards the end of March really pleases me, and even though I am having more rest days, and I know as the summer approaches it will be harder to squeeze in the exercise, I am still going to try and persevere in some way or another, and will continue to track it in these weekly updates, which gives me a kind of accountability and something to look back. Thanks to you all for the collective updates, comments, encouragement along the way. It definitely makes a big difference. Right then, let us continue along the path towards the main meat of this post, which is my exercise schedule for the past two weeks.

Suddenly I am closing in on 100 days of exercise, albeit with some rest days thrown in along the way, but these days I try and at least get a long walk or a mindfulness session in on those rest days. So if I am not exercising my body, I am at least exercising my mind. This is arguably more important than the body exercises anyway. So, if you are struggling to get that drive to get you up and active by going for a walk or hitting the gym or the pool or whatever it may be, how about setting aside 10 or 15 minutes a couple of days a week for mindfulness instead. It is easy, it is free and it is definitely worth doing in my opinion. You can download Insight Timer for free in the App store or there is also Headspace which I think you may have to pay for, but I find the free Insight Timer to be excellent. Thanks a million for reading as always. Peace Out.

Its ok to have fun while working out......
Working out should not be all boring and serious. It is ok to have fun while doing, at least in order to catch your breath after some rigorous routine. Dancing during or after working out does it for me. Although i am not a very good stepper but i try to have fun with my moves regardless. I am an extremely shy person when i am in front of the camera, especially when i am not delivering a lecture or a speech. But i can proudly say that my dance moves have improved over the years because i kept at it most times during or after my work out sessions.The video below is one of my funny moments after a long workout session. The song i was dancing to is a song by TUFACE IDIBIA a.k.a TUBABA Nigerian, one of the greatest musician to ever come out of the continent of Africa. He featured another fast rising talent from Nigeria, PERUZI. The title of the son is called "Amaka". The song was basically talking about how he, TUBABA and PERUZI were waiting for Amaka in their house but got disappointed when she didn't show up.. Amaka is a popular name amongst the Igbo tribe of the Eastern part of Nigeria.I decided to dance to this song in my SCORUM shirt because Amaka is one of the most played songs on radio and Tvs across the continent Africa presently. Moreover i am a big fan of TUFACE IDIBIA. His talent, voice, craft, music and longevity can not be matched by any other artist in this present generation, perhaps in the past too and the nearest future. Another important thing about this video apart from my SCORUM shirt and TUFACE IDIBIA is the kind of dance i was doing. Its the presently the most popular dance step in Nigeria and Africa as a whole. It is called "SHAKU SHAKU". Another dance that is making waves here in Africa is the South African "GWARA GWARA".
