I was SO sore today, week 1 legs reeeeally hit me 😂 and I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to get through today’s arms and abs workout 😅 I laid down on my bed and talked myself out of working out then caught myself out on that. I’m stopping that mentality 🙅🏼♀️ and just finished my workout feeling so much better! So get up and sweat, no matter the time 👊🏻💪🏻💦 •
Exercise is good for everything. Mood, sleep, weight control, blood sugar control, fitness, your microbiome, and more. Today I pulled out my grotty old 4kg weights from under the deck. I really struggled during my last pregnancy, and I’ve spent the last 4 weeks doing a “beginner” programme. So at 10weeks post partum (post caesarean) I’ve started the post pregnancy program with @kelseywells
on the sweat app. I’ve previously done BBG and power after my first son. I find 28 minutes is what I can squeeze in. My muscles are weak and my wrists aren’t used to weight bearing. The program seems sensible and doable. It’s great to get started.

Happy hump day ✌🏼🤸🏼♀️🏃🏼♀️💦
Alright guys today is a sad day. I’ve had to admit that smoothie bowls in fall just aren’t a thing. I’m sure I did it last year but I hate being cold & cant take it this year. Shivering over my breakfast is not for me. Its gonna be hard for me to let go cause I actually crave them but I’ll take it one day at a time. When I got home last night I was dreaming about my morning smoothie bowl but this will have to change. Now I’m gonna have to come up with a warming winter dish for breakfast tomorrow to try & rival my fav breakfast 🍵 lil excited about this new breakfast experiment tho cause I’ve got an idea 😬
Earlier today when I went for a run // pre pull ups. When I could lift my arms. No pain no gain. See stories to understand 🤪💪 also , some things just can’t be contained (😂😂😂)
Dinner last night was this big bowl of goodness:
🌿Roasted chickpeas and sweet potato.
🌿Brussel sprouts, brocolli, capsicum.
🌿Sun dried tomato pesto and hommus.
🌿Topped with hemp seeds and pumpkin seeds.
This was so yum! I just keep adding foods until I have a nice balance of protein, carbs and fats. Chickpeas = protein. Roast veg - carbs. Pesto and hommus - fats.
What is your favourite Buddha bowl combo?
🍑HUMP DAY FEELS 🍑 now we’ve reached hump day I feel like the weekend is so close! I want to fast forward so I can make myself another yummy superfood smoothie bowl 😍

Today is a pretty big day for me work wise with a huge conference on a case which I've been working on for the past two years and has been going for five years.
I work as a clinical defence lawyer representing GPs, nurses, surgeons in claims brought against them. It's obviously confidential and sensitive so I never share specific details.
I was telling someone the other day about a mistake I had made way back before I was even a trainee when I was a paralegal. An offer had been received on a case from the other side and I was told to draft a letter making a counter-offer. I prepared and sent the letter. A week later one of the associates called me over. They were supervising the file and wanted me to explain my offer. What figures had I used to mean that my counter-offer should be higher rather than lower than the offer received?! I hadn't intended that at all. My offer letter was wrong. A quick call and email were made to the other side and the offer was withdrawn, no harm done.
It's such a heart stopping moment when it happens, have you ever made a big mistake at work? Did you confess and think on your feet to fix it? I'd love to know as I'm sure I can't be the only one #lawyer #legallyblonde

den druhý: Nachystej si na zítra do práce/školy jídlo s sebou.
Ať už jde jen o sváču nebo celý tříchodový menu, nachystání si jídla s sebou Tě ušetří od vyjídaní bufetu nebo případnýho hladovění. Moc času to dnes nezabere, tak se kousni a začni!🤫
Těším se na Vaše dobroty!❤️ Tak označuj, posílej nebo sdílej a hodně štěstí.☺️
🇫🇷 Que consommez-vous comme snack ?
Ces derniers temps je lis de ces trucs sur insta... Supprimer les féculents? Mais il en est HORS DE QUESTION 😂 ✨
Plus de sushis? Plus de burger? Plus de pancakes? Plus de gauffres? Plus de pain? Plus de porridge? 🙃 ✨
Vous êtes fouuuus!!! N'écoutez pas les gens qui vous disent de ne pas manger tel ou tel aliment! 🙅🏻
Vous pouvez manger de tout. Tant que c'est modéré, et intelligemment fait, tout est permis. Et les féculents sont obligatoires pour avoir de l'énergie ☝🏽
✨ Et ce qui marche pour vous ne marche pas nécessairement pour les autres. Faites vos propres expériences 💋 Qu’en pensez-vous ? ✨
Dernièrement je me suis fait des cookies healthy pour le snack du matin 🍪 Recette dispo sur le blog !
✨ 🇺🇸Supress carbs? It is OUT OF THE QUESTION 😂 ✨
No more sushis? No more toast? No more burgers? No more pancake? No more waffles?? No more bread? No more porridge? 🙃
Are you crazy!?
Don't listen to people saying "you should stop this or that" in terms of ingredients! What works for you won't necessarily work for someone else🙅🏻 ✨
You can eat everything as long as it is moderated and smartly done😍 And carbs are a must for you to have energy! ✨

I still distinctly remember one of the first times Chase took me hiking.
It was for my birthday in 2015, the first one we spent together, and he was taking me to see a waterfall for the first time. The hike was 3 miles round-trip: 1.5 miles to the falls and back again. At the time, just the thought of walking that far seemed daunting. The trail wasn't strenuous, but the small inclines still got me.
I had a hard time catching my breath, felt so fatigued at times, and several times had to take a break to sit and rest for a moment (that's when Chase snapped that photo of me on the left).
I was so horribly out of shape, and I was SO embarrassed by it. Even worse? Feeling so miserable made it harder to enjoy and appreciate the beauty of nature surrounding us. At times I was so focused on my weakness that I forgot to take in everything else that was happening. I enjoyed the hike, but it left me feeling disappointed and defeated.
Fast forward 3+ years and many hikes later...Chase and I go hiking as often as we get a chance. Now, 3 miles is considered a short hike for us and while some inclines are tough, I feel confident scaling them. I stop to snack, and snap photos, and take in the sights, not to catch my breath or sit around until I "feel like it." Because nature is a gift, my healthy body is a gift, movement is a gift, and I'm not here to throw that away or squander it.
Do NOT let your failures and disappointments put an end to your passion.
Let your failures and disappointments FUEL your FLAME.
If I had let that first hike stop me, or let my defeat make me believe it wasn't a pursuit worth pursuing, I would have never seen all these beautiful places or had so many opportunities to bond with my husband, just us and God and nature.
So if you want to get somewhere, to achieve some goal, you're never going to get there by giving up. Throwing in the towel won't win the fight. Take baby steps. Toss your doubts to the side and just keep going. Because as long as you're moving, step by step, you're getting there. 💛🍂
Snaxxxxxx!! So been snacking on carrot and hummus, egg muffin things I’ve made and those baked oats. Been having main meals for lunch at work and it’s curbing my junk intake in the evening...finally 😂 happy hump day team #humpday #snacks
Dreaming of my next holiday. It’s been 3 years since I have had a major holiday. It’s well overdue
Does anyone else have any holiday plans?
‘every brunette needs a blonde best friend’ may be a cliche quote, but it’s also very very true 💛
So unbelievably grateful to have spent the weekend with you @vholtzz
Do you have a SOUL SISTER?!
Because this girl the definition of a soul sister! Unknowingly we grew up down the street from each other and then knowingly we’d (I) would knock on each other’s windows once our friendship grew 🌻 boy how times have changed over the last 10 years! It’s crazy to think what phases we have gone thru & how many more that will come!
A soul sister is someone who will get up early or sleep in way late. They will Day drink with you all day and crash early on a Saturday night with you. They will explore all the cities and will also binge Queer Eye with you!
A SOUL SISTER is someone who you’ll confess your soul to. There’s no one who knows my craziest stories like you. There’s no one who more people in my life don’t know about!
A SOUL SISTER talks about traveling the world with you every few months. Constantly planning an escape plan. They are the one you want to see the world with and undoubtedly be your wing womyn as you try to fall in love with all the foreign guys because you have a problem 😅
A SOUL SISTER loves you for you & will support you and judgingly-not judgingly help you through all the heartbreak you experience in life! Thank you for being my ever sounding board. My balance. My friend!
I don’t know how I’d do life without you!
So grateful this weekend magically happened.
Like many magical moments that have happened in the last 4 months.
Life’s beautiful and I’m grateful your apart of mine.
for the most sappy random post! 💛
Who’s your SOULSISTER? #SoulSisterSeptember
?! Can that be a thing?
I can't stress enough , if you're feeling a bit meh, get Ur butt outside , hail rain or shine and go for a walk. Go to your local and chat. You will feel better ! Promise !! #happy #healthy #mentalhealthmatters
I joined RunClub so I could learn how to run #bucketlist
. However, I never thought Tuesday nights would become a night I get excited about. Meeting so many amazing people, and feeling apart of a community is the biggest reward - and I am only three weeks in. Maybe a marathon in spring is more possible than I thought. #runclub #running #lovethelifeyoulive
Who's training today ? 🙋🙋
Just living in my normal clothes right now 🙋😍 NGL though, 2 days of freedom and I'm already bored 😂 I've completed an assignment, excessively cleaned the house and been to the library to get out about 17 books because I actually have time to read for the first time in 3months 📚❤ So my plan for the next few weeks is to finish up my last few assignments 👎 and actually catch up with friends I haven't seen in ages!
if you’re a firm believer in #tacotuesday
