Who am I? Why am I doing this?

Hey there!

My name is Sandy. I’m a late-30’s so-and-so from Perth, Western Australia. Since my mid-twenties, I’ve done some kind of sport/fitness thing. But before then? Very little.

I was a sedentary computer nerd from a not-sporty family. I mean, sometimes I’d ride my bike a bit, pretend to shoot hoops and walk around the ‘burb with friends, but really not enough activity to count for much. My ideal weekends were spent between bed ๐Ÿ›Œ computer chair ๐ŸŽฎ and pantry ๐Ÿช

Now I live a pretty active lifestyle involving calisthenics, yoga, gym, martial arts, indoor soccer and other physical things. It balances out the hazards of writing for a living.

Earlier this year, I started sharing my pursuits on Instagram (@sandysweats). I found it made me more interested in, committed to, and aware of the role exercise plays in a happy, healthy life.

Wow, that sounds so wankyย ๐Ÿค“

This isn’t even really about exercise. It’s about enjoying my body while I still have it. Life is short. Science isn’t advanced enough yet to keep us functioning forever. So we need to make the most of what we’ve got.

I’m not a ninja, not a black belt, not a yogi. I’m not super fit, not hyper-flexible, and definitely not a badass. But I don’t let that stop me (at least not all the time). I just try my best and do what I can.

Welcome to my blog. Learn with me. Let’s get better together ๐Ÿ™Œ
