Body. Is. Sore. Fancy giving me a massage?

Cue.. cute cat picture.



But just think we’re halfway there. It’s Wednesday afternoon which means there’s only 2 days before the weekend. Rejoice!

Before I get into my day, have you entered the super sweet Giveaway? Anyone can enter and you can have more than one entry! So get going people.

I’ve also been thinking a lot about my recent posts on eat responsibly and how eating a cupcake is healthy too. And even though I knew it, writing it and putting it into perspective like that has done wonders to concrete it a little more into my brain [and hopefully put it into action]. Its helped me with some choices of late I’ve had to make.. and yes, I’ll most probably expand on this a little later.

Anyways, my Wednesday started wayyyy too early. 5:30am to be exact for a 6:00am Body Step class. Lucky the members make it so worth it. Plus Body Step is super fun, no matter what time of the day it is.

Then a miracle happened because I managed to come home, shower and get back into my pjs for an extra 45 minutes of blissful, half-awake sleep. But boy when that alarm went off I was considering skipping my weight workout (yes I know, naughty me for doing two consecutive days of weight sessions- my body is paying for it now) but then I remembered the sexy guy I saw in the weight room yesterday, and the fact that I had Body Balance after and hopped out of bed. Ha.

I rewarded myself with a special edition to my breakfast- semi dried tomatoes. Ahhh this seriously made the scramble. [Speaking of tomatoes, I’m determined to make my own homemade cooked salsa- but don’t know how to can, gimme tips/recipes/how-to-can?!].

A full breakfast complete with water and vitamins.

Oh and check out my awesome pan.

We’ve always bought Circulon frypans since they’re non-stick, even though we’ve had plenty of issues with them- all our fault though.

First of all we were never told not to use olive oil and last time we purchased one we were put in our place. From then on we only used rice bran oil with it (mum is determined to always use oil- I’m the complete opposite). Then most recently we found out that you aren’t suppose to use high heat with the Circulon pans because it burns the bottom and defies its’ non-stick abilities.

So now we know and hopefully this one will last a little longer. I must admit it was absolute bliss flipping my egg this morning.

Then it was off to do a weight workout- the usual with the adjustments thanks to Tara @ Sweat Like a Pig!<– This girl knows her stuff. Followed by a much needed Body Balance class. Then it was home to foam roll, shower, prepare food for work and head to work.

I’m in a pretty lousy mood at the moment to be honest. My body is aching, it’s hot, I have to work till 10pm tonight and work has clients coming back which I’m less than thrilled about. I know, first world problems. Oh well, we all have these moments and hopefully mine buggers off soon.

I’m off to pep myself up with some blog reading, that always does the trick!

  • What ‘peps’ you up when you’re in a funk?
  • What little adjustment have you made to a meal lately that makes ALL the difference?

Daily Healthy Thought: Just because I feel down does not mean I’m putting myself in a bad situation.

Another Monday, and another week started.

Mine involved two pumpin’ Body Step classes and a chill day with the boy, who once again is fighting a cold. He actually isn’t that sick but slept all day yesterday when he was worse and hardly slept at all last night. Getting over sickness + no sleep = not work appropriate.

We did have a brief outing in the arvo though, after his few mini naps throughout the day (oh how I wish I could do that). First stop was a movie date to see Parental Guidance. It was pretty average but had a few good laughs. We finished up by visiting the arcade to play a dancing game.

You know those ones where you follow the screen and just move your feet. Well my mojo must have been low because someone flogged me the first two rounds. Luckily by the end I’d found my beat and managed to win the final 2 rounds to come victorious…

I also managed to make a good dint in my book. And actually I’ve almost finished it!


Yes, I do nasty dog ears on my book. My boyfriend can just remember the page number he was up to! Can you believe that?

I don’t think I have any party tricks like that. [Party tricks as in neat little things that you can do, that just so happen to impress us ordinary folk.]

Since I’m pretty plain jane I remember some party tricks I use to and still do wish I could have:

  • Be super flexible. This always impressed me.
  • Be able to do awesome magic tricks.
  • Speak another language.
  • Do the worm.
  • Read minds.
  • Predict the future.
  • Perform aerobic/circus stunts. You know, your ordinary flips, handstand bridge (!) etc.
  • Hypnotise people.

Perhaps some are a bit far fetched but hay, they’re impressive nonetheless. I think if there were any chance of me having a party trick it’d have to be exercise related. Is the ability to workout hard impressive? Ha, maybe so..but not quite impressive enough since it’s pretty standard.

What is your party trick? Or what party trick have you always wanted to have?
