Few words are needed

for moments like these..

beautiful views, even when it’s overcast

 

cooky signs at Nimbin- lovin’ it

vegie breakfast- 2 poached eggs, pumpkin, mushrooms, tomato and eggplant… too bad it’s drenched in oil. A waste of beautiful vegies (does this make anyone else feel icky)

a dead snack that’s not quite dead..haha

lennox markets- stop 2 (nimbin markets were a flop fyi)

TENS therapy- shocks your muscles and feels crazy

a light lunch- wholemeal wheat thin with 2 slices ham, cucumber, tomato and mushys

homegrown strawberries- far better than store bought mmm. pick ‘em, then eat em’!

Now for grand final footy watching and more relaxing. Hope everyone is having a great Sunday!

What did your Sunday look like?

Active Nation Day

A happy and healthy Sunday morning to you readers! Guess what today is? Why yes it is Sunday, but I’m actually referring to the fact that it’s Active Nation Day!

Thanks to Lorna Jane (you’ll remember that name from my fluro neon shorts and fav skort posts) Sunday the 30th of September is officially known as Active Nation Day. What does that mean for you? Well that means you’ve got to get physical. The aim is for our nation to have it’s most active day yet- so what will your move be? I’m at the inlaws so my day will involve plenty of walking, fishing, beaching and all things active- all in fabulous company.

If you want to get movin’ but you’re not sure what to do, here’s some ideas:

  • Get your rollerskates/blades on and head to the park? Or prefer being a skater chick/dude- grab a board ;)
  • Soak up and enjoy this beautiful weather by jumping in a pool or heading to the beach for wave jumping and fun beach activities.
  • Chuck on some tunes and get your booty movin’ to the beat!
  • Take a day trip to a nearby hike trail and explore the mountains, forests and all nature has to offer.
  • Grab some friends and family and go for a leisurely walk, power walk, jog or high-energy run (bit of competition and company never hurt).
  • Get the kids involved and spend the day at the park. (Running after them will get you moving plenty).
  • Take the dogs for a walk- they’ll thank you for it.
  • Complete a circuit or treadmill session.
  • Head to the gym for some (awesome) Les Mill Body Step, Body Pump, Body Combat, Body Balance or CX classes.
  • Do some exercises to get your heart rate up or keep it less intense (but equally as difficult) with core/ab exercises
  • Organise a BBQ and involve some social touch footy, cricket or soccer matches.
  • Or if that’s not enough get involved in one of Lorna Jane’s free events- click here for details.

Whatever your Sunday brings try and incorporate something physical into your day, so we can be one step closer to having our most active day yet! Your body, mind and health will thank you for it too; and just imagine how good those endorphins will get you feeling after!

 

DAILY HEALTHY THOUGHT:  I am thankful that my body will allow me to be active each and everyday.

What’s your daily healthy thought? How are you getting active today?
