Motivational Monday: Increase The NEAT!

Blindman Trail Marathon Training – Week 6/12 – Day 1…

Hi all. It’s seriously windy outside again today, so i’m being wise and staying in! As i walk through the woods on the trail i don’t want to be splattered by a falling tree, it may stop me training for a while, lol…And there are only 62 days left to the trail marathon! 😨 , lol!

So i thought i’d concentrate (more than usual) today on increasing my NEAT (Non Exercise Activity Thermogenesis) to burn a few more calories…Now where has Sarah gone as i need to give her a piggyback, lol! 🤣

Hoovering, Dancing & Singing…

I also make sure i don’t eat my amazingly tasty chocolate flapjack on a no walking day…I tell myself “No lap, no flapjack“. 😭 Once Sarah is bored of me carrying her around the house (yes even up the stairs) i’ll break out the hoover…You should see a blind man hoovering…As i can’t see the floor i walk around with bare feet so i can feel if the hoover has picked up any bits etc, it’s a large undertaking for me and that’ll burn some calories, lol! 🤣 Then as always i’ll jig about to music (pulling some shapes, lol) whilst singing away happily to an omnifarious mix of genres! 😀

Have you created any other crazy things to increase your NEAT? 🤔

Let’s ‘FitBlitz’ February together!! 💪🏼

I’m planning to step off the sidelines again soon… this time in memory of my wonderful mum, Valerie who died after a 14 yr struggle with Multiple Sclerosis, in the same month that I was registered blind.

I’ve always wanted to do something positive to celebrate her life and as you may know, my lovely wife Sarah has just started work at the MS Society. I can think of no better time or charity to make my fundraising in memory wish come true and I can finally add my mums name to the MS Society fight to BEAT MS.


I’m possibly stretching myself a little too far for this challenge and so I’d really appreciate your support…Please click the MS Society photo above to read all about my challenge, my story and if you can…Please donate and help me reach my fundraising target! ❤️😀 Oh please help me by sharing my JustGiving page to anyone you know who may be interested! 💪🏼
