Bootcamp and beyond ๐Ÿ™Œ

Last week I started bootcamp, sunrise sessions Sydney beach side la la la la – I missed the first session on Monday (because Sunday night…) but made it to Tuesday, all guns blazing.

Considering myself โ€œfitโ€ #becauserunning I thought Iโ€™d be ~fine~.

What happened during the first session (and beyond for the rest of last week) turned out to be quite the shock … 

Being fit from running Vs. weights, resistance and circuits turned out to be a challenge.

One of the things that frustrated me was the fact; โ€œI canโ€™t do a sit up?!โ€.

So while I found lots of the exercises hard (but still relatively easy – in the fact I could do them), there were quite a few things I most definitely need to practice!

Iโ€™ve signed up for a month and Iโ€™ll be going to pretty much every morning. Iโ€™ve always been a morning person so the 530am wake up for a 6am start is fine with me – itโ€™s great to be surrounded by likeminded people who are striving for the better so early in the morning.

I run down, do the session and run back. The run back home is up a mega steep Bronte hill with lots of steps so itโ€™s my final push in my own time before I cool down and walk the last few minutes home in time to get ready for a busy day of work.

Physically I feel in the best shape of my life right now and as 33 looms closer (thatโ€™ll be me end of August), I feel thatโ€™s a pretty good place to be.

Canโ€™t wait to smash a full sit up soon! #goalsssss ๐Ÿ™Œ

In other news; 

๐ŸŒž Sydney weather has been absolutely unreal these past few weeks – April has been crazy good (usually it should be colder by now) … itโ€™s been amazing to enjoy the Summer that keeps on giving. After spending so much of actual summer keeping my head down working and being relatively quiet personally, itโ€™s been lush to make the most of the final fling of the season.

โŒ›๏ธ Iโ€™m still reading The Power of Now. I didnโ€™t read it over the weekend and today felt I needed to dip back in – I think itโ€™s one of those books that you need to really keep going with to keep your mindset engaged until itโ€™s completely finished.

๐Ÿ‘ฏโ€โ™€๏ธ Iโ€™ve been cracking on with work, my amazing Executive, Ciara, leaves me in a few weeks to do her farm work – I am going to miss her so much both personally and professionally, we are trying to get as much done before she finishes. Iโ€™m so excited for her to go farming though – itโ€™s one of THE BEST experiences anyone on a working holiday visa can do here in Australia!

โฐ โ€œThe past is a memory trace, the future is an illusion- what is left when the illusion ends?โ€ … words from the book that have been ringing in my head 

… Being โ€œpresentโ€ is often difficult, especially when youโ€™ve got stress in your life / heartache troubles / LIFE feels like itโ€™s getting in the way.

Itโ€™s always important to make the most of each moment as much as you can. 

Time waits for no one. No matter what youโ€™re going through – time isnโ€™t going to hold up, not even for a second. 

Be there!
