Making myself a priority

Thursday, March 26, 2015      6 comments

I'm making smoothies at school to get my fruit and veggies in. I'm adding protein powder to make it last longer in my tummy. Read more

My commitment to myself

Saturday, March 21, 2015      5 comments

First of all, WOW. My last blog must have struck a chord because it was voted a featured blog post and I got 75 comments! I have recommitted this week. I made it to the gym 3 times! That is a very big deal for me, since I haven't been able ... Read more

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts Putting myself first again

Monday, March 16, 2015      85 comments

I have gotten SO bad at putting myself first lately. My job is way more demanding this year and I find myself working more evenings and weekends than I care to admit. The husband and I are slowly doing up our house which takes up weekends. My st... Read more

Ya know when you're busy? Like, really busy? Work, friends, husband, renovation work that went from being a simple days work to a 2 week ordeal? Yep, I've had that kind of week. Only made it to the gym once (OMG) but I did skim coat 3 whole wall... Read more

Back to gymming

Friday, February 13, 2015      2 comments

Gymming is totally a word... right? So I went to the gym on Tuesday for a workout, and then on Thursday to meet with my trainer. He was ready to have a go at me for not coming in for ages, but when I told him what had happened (shoulder inj... Read more

I'm still alive (pics to prove it)

Friday, February 06, 2015      7 comments

Promise. I haven't been on much because I've spent the past 6 weeks injured, my arm and then my quads. Being injured and unable to work out meant I didn't have a lot to say! I injured my arm during kick boxing 3 months ago and after month... Read more

A very kiwi Chirstmas (photos)

Friday, December 26, 2014      3 comments

Ok, so this post has almost nothing to do with a kiwi Christmas, mainly because I haven't celebrated in 3 years. Too much money involved. Riley got a present, but that's it. It does, however, give a recap of my post gastro bug, pre Christmas hap... Read more

How to lose 5 pounds in 5 days!

Sunday, December 14, 2014      11 comments

Get a gastro bug. Throw up for 7 hours straight. Uncontrollable diarrhoea probably helped, too. Feel so sick for 5 days that you can barely eat. Easy, huh? I'm going back to the doctor this afternoon. I managed to feel better fo... Read more

Jeans sizes are whack

Friday, December 05, 2014      6 comments

Really whack. I needed new jeans. The 4 pairs I bought when I first got to a size 10 are starting to fall apart. They have been very well worn over the past 2 years and are developing some air vents in the bottom area. I went to the s... Read more

Decorate Your Own Cupcake

Friday, December 05, 2014      4 comments

I was in charge of the Decorate Your Own Cupcake Stall at my school's gala. I made 150 cupcakes, TONNES of icing, and bought heaps of toppings (pineapple lumps, jaffas, jelly beans, wafers, sprinkles). Read more

Busy week

Saturday, November 29, 2014      0 comments

I am in denial about the fact that it is Saturday. Only 2 and a half weeks of school to go! I'm so tired and I can't wait for the holidays. At the same time I love these kids and don't want this year to end! Time is flying regardless! Good ... Read more

Check this out, Kris!

Beat that! One of many in my 3 punnets (3 for $20 and I'm a sucker for a deal). I only had to go to Napier to get them... In other news for anyone who isn't participat... Read more

I have the cardio blahs.

Wednesday, November 19, 2014      3 comments

I don't really like cardio. I never have. I liked boxing, but that was more about the social aspect than the actual activity. I do enjoy the GRIT classes at the gym because they are only 30 minutes but there is only 1 I can go to and I can't mak... Read more

This is normal, right?

Every family gets out of the pool and launches into a posing session, right? Riley gets really into it and makes the most intense faces. It's super funny!... Read more

Weights AND GRIT cardio AND batch cooking

Friday, November 07, 2014      4 comments

An unplanned rest day meant that I had to do 2 workouts on Friday. Well, I didn't HAVE to but I like to do 3 weights workouts and 2 cardio a week. I headed to the gym after work and hit the weights. Squats, deadlifts, overhead press, and p... Read more
