Barre Body

I’ve recently been updating my bucket list and movign things into my complete bucket list post too, and realised, I’ve done some things I’ve wanted, and taken photos and never mentioned it on my blog – that’s like it never happening right? One is Barre BOdy.  A great friend got me a single pass in …

Weight loss update

Let’s start by saying – I’m envious of Dar’s fitness post today. Driving home, I thought ‘if she can do it (and she’s in a place with all that snow, and she is older than me) then what’s my excuse?’.  So I set up my laptop, and still channeling Dar – I put on her …

Weight loss plan

**So I drafted this a few days ago, and didn’t go live.  I’ll explore why at the end** The biggest 2016 goal I want to achieve is to get under 70kg and stay that way! In the past twelve months, I’ve been down to 74kg, and in years prior, I’ve dipped under 70kg – so …

Cold, snow cold…

Last Friday I felt the niggles of a sore throat, so wisely spent Saturday sleeping.  And a lot of Sunday.  I worked Monday and Tuesday, whilst the man about the house took an unprecedented two days off in a row.  Unlike me, he actually is awake, and upright on his sick days.  My Wednesday, Thursday …

This and that

So long time no post, I know. Here’s all the scattered thoughts in a post! I get one day off a month.  Last month, I did my annual ‘scale and clean’ at the dentist.  But this month, I got my first ever filling 🙁  And I’m still sore now, about 6hrs later, but no longer …

Trying new stuff

So this weekend, I did something ‘cool’ that I didn’t even know existed, so it couldn’t even be on a bucket list!  It was sky yoga: It’s a small studio in the centre of the grungiest part of Sydney, near Central station. To get to the ‘Sky Lab’ you go past a graffiti wall – …

Half marathon – 12 in 2 list

Hot on the heels of my harbour bridge climb last Friday, yesterday, Sunday 6th July, I did the Gold Coast Half Marathon. Talk about a busy month – between the BF cashing in his skydive, to me climbing the bridge (and having a fancy dinner), then the half marathon, and in less than a week, …

Groceries for DINKS

(DINKS: double income, no kids). So, after a few weeks of a check mate between the BF and myself on the grocery shopping, we broke through.  We tried online ordering and delivery!  For nerds like us (who spend the better part of our leisure times on laptops), it was a breeze to order things. We …

Weight loss update

It’s week six of the program (I spoke about here), but I didn’t share my end of month 1 results.  I think I was less than happy with the weight loss at week 4, so I held off.  But I’ve met one of my goals this Wednesday, so I’m keen to share! Here’s my stats …
