Welcome back! Oh my God how are we half way through 2018 already.?? Its crazy when you are busy how the time flies.
Here’s how June went for me:
A- Z Blog:

Other blogs and features:
1. French Vanoli
I was featured in the French Vanoli/CrossFit Galway newsletter. We chatted about, “How long I have been doing CrossFit? How training has helped me? What do I love most about training?”
You can catch it on the youtube link below if you missed it.
2. Base Formula
In April I was given the new ‘Joint and Muscle Massage Gel’ from Base Formula to try out. I wrote a blog about it in June, which was featured on their website. Click here in case you missed it.
My blog on a recent Meditation challenge was also featured on WellFest’s ‘WellMind’ section.
Check it out on here.
As we all know by now my beloved Mayo GAA team are out of this years race for the men’s senior football All Ireland Championship. In June we had three games against Limerick, Tipperary and Kildare and alas it just wasn’t to be. I am as always very proud of them and it’s been a long road and an exceptional few years for them. This is the county that has gone to 5 All Ireland finals since 2011. Such resilience and excellence won’t be down for long and it will only make them stronger and fitter for next years championship. Mayo for Sam 2019. ❤️💚.
On a side note here I’m been totally hooked on this years World Cup. My love of soccer has returned. What will I do when it’s over?!?
This month I read:
Paul Kalanithi – When Breath Becomes Air
A true story about the authors life (he is also a neurosurgeon), coming to terms with a terminal illness and all that comes with it. Very powerful indeed and definitely worth a read.
Margaret Atwood – The Handmaids Tail
This is a story of a future dystopian totalitarian theocracy. The chosen handmaids are assigned to bear children for elite couples that have trouble conceiving. The story is based on this and their struggles in a new society that is designed to keep them oppressed and belittled. I have yet to watch the TV series based on this book and would love to hear your views if you have. I enjoyed the book and will put the show on my ‘to do’ list if recommended.
In June I also took part in a “7 day book challenge on Instagram. Post 7 covers, for 7 days with no comments.”
Here are the 7, I posted about.
1. The Magic – Rhonda Byrne
2. The Hearts Invisible Furies – John Boyne
3. How To Win Friends and Influence People – Dale Carnegie
4. Eat Pray Love – Elizabeth Gilbert
5. The 5 People You Met In Heaven- Mitch Albom
6. Sweet Valley High – Francine Pascals
7. First – Rich Froning
Let me know if you have read any of them?
So that’s it, a busy June. I hoped your enjoyed it as much as me.
