And a bit of litter picking on the way.... Still a while before Easter, but the mini eggs have already invaded our local streets @cadburyuk 😢.
If we all try to pick a little bit on our way, we will weigh up for all the zombies that think it's ok to drop their litter in the streets. #doyourbit
REASON #2 of WHY I GIVE A [email protected] ABOUT THE ENVIRONMENT series... I was out for a run this morning and the driver of a colectivo (public transportation in Mexico) threw a plastic Coca Cola bottle out of his window. I picked up the bottle, got beside of him and gave him this very mean look 👀 unfortunately my Spanish is not yet good enough to tell him off politely. But PLEASE COME THE F ON PEOPLE! Who doesn’t know that littering is bad?The ego of people (and businesses) treating the planet as their personal waste bin drives me crazy 😝😡 .
Living in a second world, I understand that some places do not have reliable services like waste removal, but that means you find another way. If you consume it, it’s your trash. In this case I personally believe @cocacola needs to provide recycling services wherever they sell their products. .
This is my facial expression when someone says any of the followings: .
"Why do you do it? I don't understand"
"To be honest I don't care."
"It's not my rubbish."
"One swallow doesn't make a summer"
"It will be rubbish there again soon"
"I don't get paid for it"
"I do litter, too. But just small things"
Why do you eat? You will be hungry again.
Why do you drink? You will be thirsty again.
Why do you shower? You will be smelly again.
Why do you wash your clothes? They will be dirty again.
If you care about yourself, look after yourself, you should care about your home too. Home doesn't end at the front door of your flat/house.
Simple as that.
➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ Ilyen fejet vágok (na jó, ennél sokkal durvábbat), amikor valaki a következőket mondja: .
"Miért csinálod? Nem értem."
"Őszintén, egyszerűen csak nem érdekel."
"Nem az én szemetem."
"Egy fecske nem csinál nyarat."
"Úgyis szemét lesz ott újból."
"Majd ha fizetnek, akkor."
"Igazából én is szemetelek, de csak kisebb dolgokat." .
Miért eszel? Úgyis éhes leszel.
Miért iszol? Úgyis szomjas leszel.
Miért zuhanyzol? Úgyis büdös leszel.
Miért mosod ki a ruhákat? Úgyis koszosak lesznek.
Ha törődsz magaddal, akkor az otthonoddal miért nem? Az otthon nem a lakásod/házad bejárati ajtajáig tart.

your persuasion can build nations, empires and every good thing you imagine is possible. you better believe YOU CAN! ...and do it!!! issa mindset 😌
ATTENTION: While we sometimes use puns, try ‘cutesy’ ideas, songs or use ‘plays on words’ with our posts, please rest assured this #plasticproblem is no joke, and is far far FAR away from cute or funny. Our experience today was so sad, depressing, somber and defeating. As we walked along a short stretch of Bethune Beach we were shocked at the amount of plastic that had washed in overnight. Over 100 plastic caps, a pile of single use cutlery, a chess piece, toy airplane, sand toys and so so so much micro plastic. 😢As we turned around, we actually SAW more plastic garbage roll in on the waves and littered the area we had just cleaned😭🤯it was awful to witness, and at first we felt defeated, and then motivated to do more, clean more, educate more, and get more people involved. We have a world wide #plasticcrisis on our hands, and it’s bad. It’s a world wide emergency. 🌊😭🤯 #beachrelief#plasticfree#dowhatyoucan#pickitup#florida#bethunebeach#newsmyrnabeach#reducereuserecyclerefuse#tearsbytheocean
More leaflet dropping and visiting some of our favourite establishments in Pokesdown & Boscombe area today, @msbakeryuk@thecrookedbook .
And a bit of litter picking on the way. Still a while before Easter, but the mini eggs have already invaded our local streets @cadburyuk 😢.
If we all try to pick a little bit on our way, we will weigh up for all the zombies that think it's ok to drop their litter in the streets.
The local litter picking heroes Dorset Devils @pickupyourlitter will come and talk to us about what they are doing, on our first event on 'Reduce waste and recycling' at @terroirtapas 26. Feb (more info look under events on our website, link in bio).

Simple alterations = maximum gains!
When it comes to making progression it’s not always best to make huge alterations to your plan. Just a subtle change is enough to keep you progressing. .
1/2 kneeling sideways landmine press is a nice simple way to progress the traditional 1/2 kneeling landmine press. .
This version challenges more frontal plane motion and there’s an increased need for stability and trunk control. Shout out to the awesome @tonygentilcore for the inspiration 🙌🏼

❇️INFIELD PLAY/TIMING THE BOUNCE❇️
We talk all the time about timing when we are hitting. However, timing in the infield is just as imperative. As an infielder we want to get our bodies in the best possible position to field every ground, obviously. The tricky part about training this is understanding that every ground ball is different and so the way you field every ground ball is going to be also. That being said, there are ways to “hack the system” so to speak, so that your body is consistently in a good position to field the #ball
1️⃣ - Try to catch the ball on the down or at its peak, not on bouncing up...but if you have to catch it on the way up, the less time between bounce and catch the better.
2️⃣ - Field the ball slightly off to your glove side, not square in front of your belly button
3️⃣ - Time your last steps to field the ball so that your body is going down at the same time as the ball, not going down and waiting as that may trigger the athlete to come up too early forcing errors. 〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️
These are concepts that are very closely used in #tennis - The best tennis players in the world get their bodies in athletic positions lightning fast as there is less time and less distance on the court than a field. 〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️
As coaches all we can do is show it and say it. Try to keep in mind that it is the player’s responsibility, and the most important piece of this #puzzle to feel it and be consciously aware of timing their bodies with the bounce. Try not to make this #process mechanical, but rather in #flow and with #rhythm - I tell athletes all the time that “what you #feel and what I #say is often 2 different things.” In other words a #players#feelings > #coaches#words - As always, keep pickin it! And #gowiththeflow 🏄🏿♂️🧘🏼♂️ #baseball#softball#coach#positivevibes#timing#pickitup#getridofit#vbc
Purchased this dress last month to use as motivation + as a goal to get in to (not needed til the end of the year 😂)... Having a tough couple of weeks, feeling like I'd been getting nowhere so thought I'd give it a try again - (L) January - Spanx on and can't do it up - (R) Today - no spanx and can do it up all the way! Still a longggg way to go but guess I've done better in the last month than I'd thought!! #backtoit#pickitup#youcandoit#romewasntbuiltinaday#comebackmotivation
While enjoying my cooked breakfast at Frankie's I've been reading this article in the newspaper. This photo shows the shocking amount of rubbish dumped in a small stretch of the Rochdale Canal since they last cleaned it - just a year ago. Yes just one year! Plastic bottles, mobile phones and even clothes. This has to stop. On a positive note, 100,000 people have already signed up for the Great British Spring Clean - a mass litter pick and clean up event running during March and April. Will you be joining them?
