Thoughts of the week…

01) I accidentally purchased a couple of things in the ASOS sale earlier in the week. There goes my fortnightly allowance, before the pay cycle had even begun. Oops!

02) I’ve started to plan things that I want to do when I’m in Bali in May, and at the top of my list is Motel Mexicola. This place looks awesome, and isn’t that far away from where we’re staying. I have a mad craving for one of their deep fried baby corn tacos. Gimme.

03) I picked up one of the Lorna Jane 2014 Diaries on ebay, after seeing Kimberley using it as a fitness planner. I’ve already started planning my monthly workout calendar, and I think I’ll be able to use this to help me stay on track.

04) My costume for my sister’s upcoming birthday party arrived last weekend, so of course Ben had to try it on. How could I possibly top this?

05) Game of Thrones is back!

06) I highly recommend this pumpkin soup. I made it last weekend and it was DELICIOUS. It was a really simple recipe, and you could probably afford to omit the sage if it’s too much hassle because I didn’t find that it added that much to the recipe as a whole.

07) I need a good winter coat. My old H&M coat is on it’s last legs.

08) Kelly has jumped on board with the ‘Thoughts of the week…’ style posts. Head on over and pay her a visit, and please let me know if you also post these on your blog, because I’d love to come and check them out.

09) Game of Goats

10) Have any of you tried the Belvita breakfast biscuits? OMG I am obsessed with them. Speaking of obsessed… My mini egg addiction is getting out of hand.

April Fitness Chat

Wow, my arm looks gargantuan in that photo. It’s been a while since I posted anything fitness-related on the blog, which is probably because I’ve not been paying much attention to that aspect of my life lately. However, I feel energized and refreshed and back on track, and I thought it might be the perfect time to introduce a new monthly series of posts to the blog. Every month I’ll be checking in to discuss my goals, how I’m feeling, and interesting fitness-related things I’ve seen pop up around the place.

Monthly Goals
We’re half way through the month already, but better late than never. My main goal for the month is basically to get myself back on track, both physically and mentally. This has been a crazy year so far, but things are slowly settling down and I feel more capable of taking control of my health and fitness in general. I want to plan my lunches better (with the aim to make healthy options to take to work every day), I want to increase my weekly workouts to at least 4 a week, I want to keep a fitness diary (my new Lorna Jane planner should work with that), and I want to cut coffee out of my daily diet. I’m going to Bali in the first week of May, and you can bet that’s motivating me to WERK.

Health & Fitness Related Goodies
* I was in Kmart yesterday and noticed that they have quite an extensive range of workout clothes. I picked up a gorgeous green tank (pictured in the image above) for $15. You can bet I’ll be going back for more. ** If I’m ever short of motivation, I search through the #fitfam hashtag on Instagram. There are a lot of inspiring people out there, and there is always a picture of two to help motivate me to get off of my butt and move. *** I’m planning on whipping up some turkey meatballs to have for lunch during the week. I’ve never made meatballs before, so I’m interested to see how they turn out. I’ll keep you posted. **** I need a new theraband.
