Friday Favourites, 29 January

It has been another eventful week for me, though I haven’t been sleeping very well so am feeling really worn out and have a bit of a crick in my neck but nevertheless have had a great week.

Kayaking with Dad. I had some father/daughter time with my Dad last Saturday and we took the kayaks out for a bit which was nice.

Australia Day. Ok so it was a great day but man it is weird having a day off on a Tuesday, it’s like having a Monday on the actual Monday and another one on Wednesday! But it was a nice day I spent part of the day at the beach with my partner before heading off to the movies with a girlfriend.

Joy. The movie I went to see on Tuesday was Joy with Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper. It was an alright movie, it was about a woman who faced great odds to turn her dream into a reality, but oh my gosh her family annoyed me and I wanted to throw them out a window!

Monarto Zoo. This wasn’t really a visit, this was a volunteer information session, but the staff made it a bit special for us and we were taken out to the giraffe platform to see them feeding which was lovely. I’ll be going back for an interview in about a week and a half, wish me luck!

Local eatery open again! There’s a lunch bar down the street from work which has been closed for the last few weeks over Christmas and New Year and it only just opened back up today, so I was really excited to be able to go there and get banh mi for lunch today.

I hope you have all had a good week as well, let me know in the comments below what highlights you have to share.

Take care,

Friday Favourites, 9 October

I’m coming to the party a little bit late with this one, but I just needed to take a break from computers yesterday. I’d spent the last day and a half trying to make my laptop cooperate, it was very annoying, so I just needed to not look at it for a while!

Pole class. This is the exotic pole class I’ve been doing, still having fun, but am finding sometimes we learn so much of the routine it’s hard to remember it all! I am enjoying it though, I’ve learnt so many cool floor moves and transitions, so I feel a bit more comfortable doing floor work now.

New dancing shoes! I have new Pleaser dancing shoes which I got through an online store called Spice Up Australia. They specialise in shoes that are good for pole dancers.

Farewell lunch. One of the guys at work is leaving and so we had a farewell lunch for him. It was really nice to see such a big group of people get together to say farewell. It’s a shame he’s leaving but he’s onto something he’ll enjoy a bit more.

Birthday cake order. I spoke to one of my friends and she is going to make my birthday cake for me, I’m so excited! It’s going to be a two tier circle cake with silhouettes of pole dancers on it.

Dietician. One of the things I have to do for my eating disorder is to see a dietician who can help me begin to manage and control my eating, while I’m also working with a psychiatrist to move past the issues that have caused me to use food as a coping mechanism. It was a really positive first session and I realised that when my eating is normal, I eat fairly well and fairly nutritious meals, so that made me feel a bit better.

I hope you all had a great week too, let me know in the comments if there’s anything special you’d like to share.

Take care

Motivational Monday, 14 September – Everything I ate…

I dunno about you guys, but I had a really big weekend, topped off with going to the Royal Adelaide Show yesterday (see pictures about my day here), so what I ate over the weekend…yeah it wasn’t good. So I feel like I can really relate to this image!
