Time to review

With the New Year just days away, I thought I would write a review of 2016 and reflect on what a fantastic year I have had. Through health, fitness and outdoor sports, I have developed a lifestyle that really makes me happy and I want to inspire and motivate others to do the same. I’ve had such fun from cycling and camping that my motivation levels have gone through the roof and I thought that I would share some of the highlights of the last year with you. Already I am feeling inspired and excited for the coming year and I cannot wait to set some challenges for 2017.

How did it happen?

I really found my motivation for Outdoor Sports again this year after a camping trip to the north west of Scotland with a dear friend. I hadn’t been camping for over 20 years and I didn’t know if I would enjoy it again. I really thought my camping days were long gone. We had a wonderful time and I was hooked and, after this trip, I decided to start blogging a bit more about my participation in Outdoor Sports. After all, I have always been enthusiastic about the outdoors, I have been cycling for years, and this is my Passion. Now I am enjoying my Outdoor Sports more than ever and I can’t wait for 2017 to come and to experience the amazing new opportunities it will bring!



Highlights of the Year



Things I have learned this year

  • My passion for outdoor sports is as great as its ever been. I might have lacked motivation because of the difficulty of finding people to take part with me in outdoor sports but now I am doing it again I am so happy.
  • Perhaps I could inspire and motivate other people. I’ve had so much encouraging feedback it has inspired me to carry on writing and sharing my experiences.
  • Doing my sport and writing about it is following my bliss, and doing what makes me happy. I love sport and keeping fit, I have so much fun which is why I keep doing it.
  • More evidence,as if I need it, that healthy body and healthy mind go together. I feel fantastic!
  • I’m making friends across the world. Via Twitter I have got chatting to people both locally and on the other side of the world and my life is enriched for that.

In my next post I am going to share some of my hopes and dreams for the coming year!


I was very grateful this year to secure the support of the following companies and I look forward to representing or promoting them in the coming year.


  1. Looking forward to doing Cairn Laith in early Spring. Happy new year by the way.

  2. My boyfriend first blood test was detected to have HIV 1 & 2 and now he had the confirmatory test for HIV. If he had HIV positive what medicine and treatment he has to take? And how many times he have to take it? I’m very lost I love him very much but I’m too afraid because my blood test is negative but will I in future will possibly get HIV positive? If he get treated with medicine and treatment how long can he live? I’m very worried I don’t wish to see him dead or anything happened.

  3. Everyone who runs a website should read this post. I have built many sites over the years, and never knew how that the html code for anchor text could be removed. Thanks.

  4. Hey, I am sorry to hear about your recent diagnosis. This is never easy news to get, but is does get easier and you will be ok. You are in the same situation as lots of other people.

  6. Hi Sindy. UK guidelines now say that it is okay to use efavirenz during pregnancy. The information that is given with the meds is out-of-date and should be revised. The safety data comes from a very large database where the drug has been safely used.

  7. Sorry, only service and show dogs are allowed on the grounds. No other personal pets are allowed.

    I was recommended this website by my cousin. I’m not sure whether or not this publish is written through him as nobody else realize such
    targeted about my trouble. You are incredible!
    Thank you!

  9. I don’t know if it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else experiencing issues with
    your blog. It appears like some of the text in your posts are running off the screen. Can somebody else please provide feedback and let me know if this
    is happening to them too? This might be a problem with
    my internet browser because I’ve had this happen before.

  10. No matter if some one searches for his necessary thing, therefore he/she
    desires to be available that in detail, therefore that
    thing is maintained over here.

  11. This is the right blog for everyone who wants to find out about this topic.
    You know a whole lot its almost tough to argue with you (not that I really will need
    to…HaHa). You definitely put a brand new spin on a topic that has been discussed for years.

    Great stuff, just great!
