🎉🎉 My 1000th post 🎉🎉
Well it’s only taken me just over 5 years to reach this wee milestone on my account! 😳😂
So I thought to celebrate, I would share with you all some random facts about my account.....
* 688 of my photos contain water 🌊
* My first ever post was on 16th Oct 2013 📅
* I was suggested by @Instagram
almost exactly a year later on 17th Oct 2014 😱
* Since joining Instagram I have climbed 93 munros (and hundreds of other hills)
* I have visited 45 islands (some numerous times)🏝
* I have discovered I have a slight obsession with lighthouses 💡🏠
It really has been a life changing wee app for me. 💃🏻

раскрыла мне ещё одну нацию с особым дзеном😆 Сразу же в памяти всплыл год работы в Турции и мое негодование по поводу лени местного населения. Но вскоре подобная участь постигла греков. Точнее, они даже переплюнули своих ненавистных соседей!
🦎 Так я и жила с этим знанием про двух народов-ленивцев, пока со мной не случился Таиланд😂 И вот уже 7 лет тайцы занимают лидирующую позицию в моем рейтинге релакс-релакс. Что, в общем-то и не удивительно, их сабай-сабай известен на весь мир✌️
🦕 Жаль, что мне пока не довелось узнать самых трудолюбивых. Надеюсь, они ещё появятся на горизонте)))
🦎Кому посчастливилось познать безмерную лень или впечатляющее трудолюбие в окружающих вас людях? Кто эти олимпийцы?!)))

Sometimes life gets so overwhelming. Social media can make it seem like everything is perfect, but its rarely the whole story. Behind these perfect squares lies self doubt, tears, and frustration. Whether it’s personal struggles, career problems, or holiday anxiety- know you aren’t alone. We are in this together. For anyone who is fighting a battle- please don’t give up. As for me, my new puppy is ripping down the drapes, wishing my husband wasn’t 1500 miles away and trying to find a way to teleport back to Scotland. My troubles seem so insignificant if I turn on the news so I need to be grateful for a roof over my head, my health, and my village. I’m so thankful for all of you who make my life a bit brighter. ✨
- Love you, but stop trying to make me eat beetroot k? Tastes like dirt. X
❗️The MyFitnessPal Pitfall❗️
A few of my clients over the past few months have had the same problem with MyFitnessPal so I though I would share with you to hopefully prevent you doing the same thing. 👇🏻
When you first start using MyFitnessPal, you might not have a coach and as such might use the automated macro settings. This is fine, but my advice would be to have a coach look at your intake and advise on that your macros should be, rather than a computer.
As MyFitnessPal links with the apple health data on your iPhone (sorry android guys, I don’t know what the equivalent is for you guys) it will read your activity for the day, steps/workouts etc and will subsequently update your daily calorie goal. 👇🏻
⚠️For example, if you burn 300kcal in a workout one day, your calorie allowance for that day will increase by 300kcal. 👇🏻
What this meant was that my clients were eating that extra calorie allowance, I mean, why wouldn’t you, right? 🤷🏼♂️Well, assuming a coach has worked out your calories (certainly if they do it the same way that I do) then they will already have taken into account your activity level and allowed for exercise. 👇🏻
Therefore, if you are eating more than the discussed number of calories, then you are probably eating into your caloric deficit and hindering your weight gain. 🤦🏼♂️
Just something to be aware of guys…keep tracking!!💁🏼♂️
Dunbars Close Garden. One of the little secrets of Edinburgh is just meters away from the busy Royal Mile. Places like this one make me so happy to be living in this wonderful city 🍂❤️

The last lick of light in North Berwick that day...such a serene moment found.

This view always makes me smile, makes me feel lucky to be living where I am, lucky that my kids get to grow up in such a beautiful place.
It's a funny old week for me, this week.
7 years ago this week I had my kidney removed. 3 weeks before, I'd been diagnosed with kidney cancer. The longest 3 weeks of my life.
5 years ago this week, I had my hip replaced. It was rather painful by the time I had it done.
Neither experience was that fabulous, but both in the end, contributed to who I am now and my outlook on life. Living by the sea, cancer free, almost a bionic woman, who makes sure we go on adventures and appreciate the little things.
A muddle of feelings, but when this week is past, looking forward to future adventures.
Sometimes putting words out into the universe helps 💡

Last light on an autumn evening at Rannoch Moor...
Passing through on the way to Largs...I love driving through countries and going off the beaten path to get somewhere, it always seems to bring restful beauty.
