Winter Zoo

The best things in life are free. Flip side, there’s no such thing as free dinner. Nature’s free for everyone. Inspiring and motivating us, making us feel good being surrounded by greenery, water or even sitting warm sunshine’s free. How we as humans treat nature maybe we shouldn’t haven’t it for free. Without sounding too preachy our actions may not immediately affect our own countries environments instead affecting other countries environments and how nature’s linked, it will affect our countries at some point. Nature always wins. Nature likes to survive. Nature likes balance. I sometimes feel we as humans are the caretakers of Earth and we’re not doing a great job looking after it. Nature on our own doorstep might not feel or look as beautiful as a far away tropical climate to care, (those in that tropical place might feel the same?) but it is and it’s free.

I know many people don’t agree with zoos (maybe if we took better care of nature and the environment we wouldn’t need them). There are some bad ones out there. Barcelona Zoo’s aim is to help endangered species around with world and raise awareness of Spain’s own wild animals. Some resident enclosure’s I’d love to be bigger Continue reading “Winter Zoo”

Autumn Fall Rescheduling

Happy Autumn Fall and Happy October!

There’s something about the Equinoxes more than the Solstices that leave me wanting a change or a wake up in scheduling, new energy, or being more reflective. Maybe it’s the equal length of day and night wanting balance. Maybe it’s the change in light, change in temperature. Solstices feel more about new beginnings; beginning of longer days in the winter, heat in the summer. Equinox’s are like the detox to the cold and heat or light and dark. 

If August flew by without being able to catch my breath, September didn’t want to be left out. Before I knew I was back to rushing about getting places on time. Climbing classes have started again, the zoo closes earlier, appointments, the sun sets around 19.40 (why can’t the longer days stay? Because Earth has a gravitational orbit it needs to stick to so you get that sunlight Nat and that means a few months of less sun.). I say this every Continue reading “Autumn Fall Rescheduling”

Sunrises, Trees, Monkeys And Catch Up

Happy February!

Winter’s back! I always forget February gives January a run for it’s money here in which month’s the coldest. February’s short and sweet, but it packs a punch in rainy, windy, grey overcast, sunny cold days.

Next week I start my indoor climbing classes. I’ve never done anything like it before apart from climbing trees as a kid so I’m a little nervous and excited. I’m scaling down my gym workouts next week so I have energy. I know it’s probably a workout in itself, however I’m what if the first class is just theory? I won’t get my fix.

Anyways, last week when by in a blur and I didn’t get a change to stop by and say Hi Continue reading “Sunrises, Trees, Monkeys And Catch Up”

Early November Catch Up

Happy November!

I thought I could celebrate a little after handing my coursework for my Pre and Post Natal Fitness course a little under 2 weeks ago. 12,500 words I thought I’d completed. Detailed plans for all trimesters with how to’s, modifications, progressions, adaptations, special considerations. Then I get an email, saying I’d missed the last 3 questions.

I didn’t see them! After layouts of training sessions, I didn’t scroll down enough. Thankfully my tutor was okay about it. It’s not the course I wanted to study. Continue reading “Early November Catch Up”
