Ohhh what a glorious day! What are you grateful for today?
I am loving this sunshiney weather and lovely 30 degrees here on this fantastic Tuesday. Also, loving that I had a really good leg session this morning and I swear even walking up the stairs is too hard right now. So. Hard. Out. Of. Breath.
This week I’ve been so busy that I have been feeling a little bit stressed out. OK, maybe not really busy… but I have lots of stuff to do, and stressing over it instead of actually doing it is reeeeally hard.
I’m going to NZ to see Adam in three weeks! Only three! Really excited to visit my home country’s capital city, too, which I’ve never been to before.
I realised last week that my passport had expired a month ago so I was a bit worried it wouldn’t arrive on time. But I applied online for a renewal last Wednesday night and I received it yesterday. Speedy! Good work, NZ government. I appreciate you.
I prepped the crap out of my meals this week. My trainer keeps telling me I have to eat more green veges, more, more, more! So this week I’ll be munching on broccoli, zucchini, asparagus, beans, shallots (spring onion) and, also, sweet potato and chicken, chicken, chicken!
With eggs, tuna and protein shakes for snacks. Yum yum, in my tum.
It’s also only two weeks (or less!) til I go on Who Wants to Be A Millionaire Hot Seat. Nervous alert! Not expecting to win anything, but it will be such a fun experience.
Also, this weekend I am attending the fitness expo, Fit X, in Melbourne. I am so excited to see lots of muscly people, get some inspiration and watch my first ever bodybuilding show. I’ll tell you all about it next week.
You may have noticed that my header up at the top of my blog (up there *points to up there*) has changed. I wanted it to reflect what I write about here a little bit more closely, but still keep it adorable. Do you like it?
HIGHLIGHT OF MY WEEK:
Probably that my passport arrived so quickly. Is that lame?
Shut up! You’re lame!
The non-highlight of my week is that I literally just spilled water all over my laptop. Oops.
❤ A Facebook friend shared this link the other day, which explains really simply how your metabolism works. Awesome read, especially if you don’t know anything about it!
❤ Here’s a top notch video about why taking selfies are a positive thing!
❤ This is a very well-written (long!) article about Jennifer Lawrence and the History of Cool Girls. Very enlightening.
❤ Here’s my top 10 songs for working out at the gym.
❤ When it comes to weight loss, I think weight lifting rules and cardio drools. Here’s why!
