Man, do I have that Friday feeling or what?! WHAT?!! I don’t even have plans tonight. I am just really excited about going home. Not drinking. Watching some catch up TV. Passing out early. Man, I am getting old aren’t I? I think it is because of the four day week after the Bank Holiday long weekend. It always feels like it drags.
Don’t judge me too much. Tuesday night Michelle and I went to go and see Bring Me The Horizon at Koko. It was awesome and we had such a good night, singing along and dancing as per usual.
Just a small crowd really.
This is the shirt I was wearing. I bought it from General Pants in Australia when I was there earlier this year. Pretty cool huh? Surf’s up!
I look like I have beaver teeth in this photo, but I love it anyway!
So I wasn’t really in the mood to get up and go for a workout on Wednesday morning. I was feeling a bit dusty and knew that I would make it up to myself on Thursday.
So, a tangent - my little brother was living in Canada the last few years, but at the moment he is in Tasmania with my Mum, before starting a snow season at Falls Creek in Victoria. Mum and Spike are teasing me by sending through beautiful photos of the sunset view from mum’s place.
I love a sun burnt country…
This weekend has been so relaxing. Sunday I woke up, did some cleaning, got a pedicure, had a lovely lunch at home, had a nap and just overall lazed around, doing things at a leisurely pace. It was amazing!
I also couldn’t resist stopping into the sweet shop on the high road for some cheap M&Ms on the way home. Peanut Butter are my favorite and since the store is closing down, buy one get one half price worked well for me!
Lunch was another one of those Higgidy Pies that I was talking about on Saturday. So tasty, and yes, that is more hot sauce :)
The weather has been warm, but by no means hot. I still wore a beanie yesterday and felt only just warm enough with my shorts, t shirt and hoodie. Come on Summer, you know you want to arrive already.

Fasted jog around the park and back again. This route is around 5.5km with a few really nice hills in there. According to the time on the clock when I got back, the run took me about 30mins. Which is strange because that’s how long it usually takes me when I have had breakfast. I did feel like I was lacking a little energy, but overall, it wasn’t too hard.
So, this silly cold is still hanging around. I do however, feel much better than I did yesterday and I managed to get somewhat of a circuit workout done and dusted this morning. I think it might have something to do with the fact that last night, I fell asleep on the couch, woke up around 9pm, stumbled into bed and continued sleeping until I woke up this morning around 4.30am…. Lolz.
Paws thinks that is a good idea. Do you agree? I am trying really hard to win the love of my body back!

The first round I completed 20 reps of each exercise. The second round I completed 15 reps of each exercise. I was feeling a bit weak and decided to keep the weight, but lower the reps. Man, it was a bit of a struggle.
Cardio HIIT on the treadmill. Just a couple of rounds sprinting, then I felt like I was pushing myself too hard and I backed off.
To finish off, I decided to just try and max out on the above circuit. Do as many reps as I could and call it a day.
592Kcal burnt during this workout.
Tonight Janine is coming over for dinner and we are going to make THISawesome salad. I will let you know how it goes as I have never used farro before. Very exciting!
I feel like I am getting a cold. I managed to avoid it while at work, during the time that everyone else was suffering… and I thought that I was invincible. Turns out, I am not.
Hopefully I don’t get it as bad as everyone else does. I am trying to ignore it, but will see how well that goes!
I went to the gym this morning for a small shoulder workout (posted earlier on Fitocracy) and am going to take it easy for the rest of the day.
Breakfast: Oats with soy milk, flax seeds, protein powder, peanut butter and agave nectar.
Lunch: Brown rice with fajitas spices, tuna, corn, kidney beans and a small amount of mayo.
Not sure what else there is to come today, but am thinking some kind of veggie burger with steamed veggies for dinner. I need some green goodness to help kick this cold!
