Unusual Effects of Going to the Gym

2020-02-12T15:40:59+11:00

On the 15th of January, I finally joined a gym. I had been considering it for a little while, mostly because I love the idea of running inside away from the elements. I follow the gym on Facebook &and noticed they were offering a very attractive deal, compared to the other 24/7 gyms in my area. I’m pretty sure all the gyms in my area are now 24/7 anyway. Back in December I started using a ‘couch to 5k’ app and was making good progress but was finding it hard to get going in the various climates of the Australian [...]

A Day in the Life

2019-07-14T21:11:00+10:00

Follow me, as I describe a day in the life. As a belated (October) birthday present, I took my mum for High Tea at Hotel Windsor. I wanted to go during the week because I thought it wouldn’t be so busy but it had to wait until I had time off work over Christmas. They offer two sittings 12.30pm and 2.30pm, I thought 2.30 was more appropriate for afternoon tea but is only offered Wednesday to Sunday. A day in the life Mum also wanted to go to Chadstone Shopping Centre, which is the largest in the southern hemisphere. I’d [...]

2018-08-27T22:01:50+10:00

Here is the 2014 resolution final update of the original list that was my first ever blog post. RELATED: 2014 Resolutions Personal • Wear jeans less often - This has been much easier to do in the warmer weather, I’ve been able to wear skirts & dresses instead. I also got myself a new pair of black work pants & have been wearing those instead. • Read 100 books - I almost didn't succeed in reading 100 books. Enter Goosebump books! I can now read a book from the Goosebumps series in about an hour & a half. I owe my [...]

2014 Melbourne Color Run

2018-04-14T14:56:32+10:00

Again, I signed up to The Color Run all on my lonesome hoping I would find someone to go with when the event rolled around. This time they only allowed pack pick up on the three days before the event & not on the actual day. After I found out that I was hoping extra hard to find someone that could pick up my packet & I would offer to drive them on the day. Lucky for me a colleague from work signed up about 5 days before. I’m glad I managed to convince her, after all 5 kilometres is [...]

The Bloody Long Walk

2019-05-19T17:48:49+10:00

Towards the end of August one of my colleagues suggested we do The Bloody Long Walk. A few others agreed & I also got roped into it. The Bloody Long Walk is a 35km challenge to cure Mitochondrial Disease, a debilitating genetic disorder that robs the body’s cells of energy, causing multiple organ dysfunction or failure & potentially death. The walk starts at the iconic Victoria Park football ground in Abbotsford, follows the main Yarra trail to Crown Casino, continues down alongside the tram tracks to Port Melbourne & concludes at North Road Reserve in Brighton. The Bloody Long Walk training We started our [...]

To some the challenge would be a real lifestyle change too. My actual weight isn't much different, although there has been a drop of about 2% in my body fat. I think this is mostly due to [...]

I'm having a lot of trouble sticking to the program, it's mostly the training that I struggle with. My motivation has completely gone out the window. I think it was last week that I said I just wanted to be good at running without putting in any of the [...]

I've wanted to get back into running again but that first run after a break is always the hardest. I'm suffering such a lack of motivation for that right now. I just want to be better at it already!! I have been doing some Fitness Blender videos [...]

Most of this week I ate a tin of tuna & crackers for lunch or a tin of tuna & a cuppa soup. Not the best options but I made do with what I had. I was planning on being more organised but that [...]
