Recent Happenings

Hey! I’m seriously the worst blogger, but hay whatevs. No point forcing it when I’m not feeling it ya know? Anyways, since it’s been forev…I think the last post was the Why I Can’t Be a Low Carber…I will give you a recent catch up of everything that has been happening.

Get ready, get set….GO!

I obviously stopped the whole low carb thing, and introduced a few more carbs into my life- whilst my carbs are still less than what they were cravings and binge urges have reduced ten fold- thankfully! In a way I’m really happy I trialled it, rather than ignorantly say it’s the worst, I participated and can say for me, it’s not happening.

We, well he (aka the bf) is buying a new, well used, car. It’s super sexy too…

hay 350z. We’ve always loved this car and he managed to find a great interest rate on a loan, and a great buy- it’s a 2008 Nissan 350z in black, coupe 2 door…track edition? Or was it touring? Who knows…but I just can’t wait to drive that baby woooo!

As of lately I’ve got several positive comments about me looking like I’ve lost weight- although mums was more like- Bek you’re not losing weight are you? You don’t need to. She’s a nag ha. Honestly, I feel better in my skin and more confident but I don’t think that’s due to weight loss- the scale isn’t really budging, some of my measurements have decreased a tad and my body fat % has decreased since I tested a couple of months ago- but really I don’t think I’ve lost any weight. Isn’t it odd?

NOW, whilst I don’t feel like I’ve lost weight I DO feel more accepting and loving towards my body. Sure I have my good and bad days but really I’m establishing a much better attitude towards it all- WOO!

Speaking of new establishments, I’ve also become a bit more relaxed about food (yes this gives me anxiety to share this on the big wide web, but it’s a positive step in the right direction). I still eat quite healthy, but don’t feel guilty when the bf wants to take me out for dessert or I want a few pringles- my latest guilty pleasures… sour cream & onion pringles and an amazing chocolate froyo (that literally tasted like milo ice cream). Sure it’s got nasty ingredients and little nutritional value, but I think eating well 90% of the time, I can eat for my soul the other 10% ;)

A few weeks ago we went away to the sunny coast! Our date night selection from the date night jar- was go somewhere with a view. So we went all out and spent a weekend away looking at this magnificent thing..

I went dorky and fluro for my Fluro Les Mills New Release Launch at one of my gyms! What fun :)

Outfit is actually much more fluro then photo lets on..

Yes, the extra long singlet was necessary to cover the see through pants! Ps. Bonus points when you chose your size in pants and they’re lose (this has nothing to do with the fact that they’re stretchy…shh!) haha.

I love this and it reminds me of something my mumma would do ha- love her x

This weekend I will be in Melbourne (WEEE!) from early sat morning until Sunday night for the Australian Fitness & Health Expo, and more importantly the Les Mills Super Workshop. Last year I loved both in Sydney and thought, hell- I’m young, have the money- why not live it up a bit ;) I cannot wait for my passion in health and fitness, and LES MILLS to be reinvigorated with new energy and inspiration! (Ps. Give me tips Melbourners- what to do, where to go, what I must eat ha!?)

Well that’s all for now folks- I shall hopefully be back a little quicker this time ;)
  • What are you looking forward to at the moment?

One Post, One (and a half) Week(s)!

Yep, the brackets were necessary.

Anyways, you know when you miss something..yep that’s me right now. I’ve wanted to get right into blogging on numerous occasions but things just popped up and I guess I chose to live rather than to write.

Ahh well, to make it up let me back track some stuff for you. Some of it (let’s be honest- all of it) may be totally random and have no purpose whatsoever.

For the past couple of days I’ve been entering in my food intake and exercise to see how I’m going. I want to make sure I’m on track and it was a good eye opener :)

I made super cute and delicious Easter nests using Natvia the other day! YUMYUM. (and healthy- bonus points)

I got a massage today after seeing the physio and podiatrist the last couple of weeks. I’m super tight again which explains all my shin/muscle issues again. The massage was painful (especially ITB) but felt great after, gosh how quick 30 minutes can fly ha.

Saw this gorgeous pink diamond, only 30k- your shout?

I tried a new protein bar and it was delish. It seems there’s more and more protein bars out there that are ticking all the right boxes

My chest is-a-hurting. I recently tucked my ego away and allowed myself to go slightly lighter on my chest so I could focus on lowering it in the right place. The result? The past two Thursdays I’ve had DOMS in the chest area. Oh and the tricep area too- it kills me but I love it ha.

I am officially a tea lover, I now know what everyone was on about ha. I have a lovely peppermint one I like to have before bed some nights and a delicious blueberry smelling one!

A new BodyStep, Les Mills top that I’m loving…although I find it gets quite low now and then in the bust region. Oh and I got it for a steal!

Monday this week KILLED me. I was suffering Post Weekend Depression hard out. I just wanted to run away and enjoy life with the boy. I guess it’s a sign of a good weekend?

Don’t you hate when this happens and your egg shell comes off in tiny bits and you massacre the egg..

I spent the Australia Day long weekend with the inlaws and there was birthday cake! (and we’re going back this weekend- can’t get enough!)

I just baked some of my ultimate fave banana bread…actually it’s the second time this week after I received another batch of Norbu. Mum requested a batch and so the bf…now I’ve got to get on to making some for the work crew.

(recycled photo, duh ha!)

Banana Bread

I just watched Because I Said So (with diane keaton, mandy moore etc) and loved it- I’d been itching to watch it this week so definitely feel satisfied…and yep that sounds weird ha…

….And now let’s get some food pics…

delicious homemade rice paper rolls with carrot, lettuce, cucumber, capsicum, mushrooms, avo and chicken!

I knew you guys would appreciate my FIL’s pancake breakfast! AMAZING.

IMG_6914

Messed up leftover beef meatballs with pumpkin and (more) cheese

IMG_6938

A gross looking lunch of cherry tomatoes (home grown at in laws), tuna, cheese, mushrooms and sweet potato. I swear cheese makes everything look gross but taste amazing ha.

IMG_6945

A similar lunch but minus the sweet potato and plus beans!IMG_6968

Yep, and I just realised these photos are so unexciting. I would take more but my memory is full and I can’t! Maybe time for someone to go through and clean some out?
Oh and I’m sure there’s more I wanted to share but am racking my brain. Hopefully I’ll check in tomorrow!
