HAPPY in July

At the start of the year, I shared with you my word for 2015 – CONFIDENCE.

I also shared with you my word for February – FOCUS, my word for January was INTEGRITY,  for March it was BELIEVEBALANCE for April,  EXPERIENCE in May and POSSIBILITY in June.

Well now, July is here and after some thought, I have a word for these 30 days – .


July | Happy

DO Happy > HAVE Happy > BE Happy

This is what HAPPY will look like for me in regards to Health & Fitness this month:

Health | Mix up my training again. Using a 2 week rotation of 3 swims, 3 runs, 2 spin / cycle, 2 gym / other. Take part in events for how I will feel doing them rather than aiming for a time / distance etc. Do what makes me happy and being happy will come as a result. 


Last month, I had so much fun living in possibility. I smashed huge goals and spent time with friends and family enjoying life and the good weather!

This month, I plan on following the little quote above, DO; HAVE; BE. I think sometimes it feels like we should be happy first, then things will come to us and we will do things because we are happy. In fact, I believe it works the other way round.

Above are a few of the little things I will be reading and using. I love trashy TV and books; life can be a little serious sometimes so I like to be able to escape when I choose. I love reading other peoples stories too and for years, Richard Branson’s book has been on my Amazon Wishlist! The camping light will be used for photography… oh and then for camping when I actually go for my final triathlon of the season in September!

Last but not least, I’m coming to the the Sweaty Betty #GetYourOMBack Challenge in July! Follow along on IG and get involved!

So what are your plans for July?! What word would you choose?!

Elle 🙂

    Wishing you much happiness this month and beyond. My word/theme is refocus. Yep it's the second half of the year, and I need to refocus on my health/fitness goals instead of comparing my journey to others.

      Thanks LaToya! What a perfect time to choose refocus as your word! That's food for thought for us all in reality! x

    Without a doubt my word would be rest. June was a big month of running, with running everyday. It's nice to be able to rest, sleep in and just relax. Enjoy being happy, nothing better than it.
