Grumpy and irritable. Things that normally don’t bother me are like neon beacons flashing at me – tempting me to explode. Oh how I have NOT missed this feeling. Although I love travel, I hate the jet lag that comes with it….I’m affected by lack of sleep on a good day….when it’s magnified like this I’m pushed to my absolute limits and the bitch inside me wants to come out and play.
My final day at work in Sydney. Possibly, the last day I will ever work in Sydney…possibly not. Who knows what the future will bring, but now it’s time to say goodbye to this vibrant, often-crazy city and rekindle my relationship with the city I grew up in.
A lot has happened in the past 6 or so years. I’ve achieved some great things and learnt some very valuable skills and lessons. I have made some friends who I know will be part of my life forever. I also know that there were people that I met along the way who may not have liked me or visa versa but they were a necessary part of the journey. I think too, that each person you meet influences your life in one way or another.
So why would I want to leave Sydney? If I had a dollar for every person who has asked me that…well I’d be a very rich person.
Honestly? It’s just time. Sydney has opened it’s arms to me and I’ve taken from it what I’ve needed. Now it’s time to move on….to take what I’ve learnt and use it elsewhere. Somewhere slower paced, with my family and close friends around me. I’m excited for this new chapter and next week I plan to sit down and write a list of new goals. I think I’ll do a bit of updating of this blog too….
A new city…a new structure.
To Sydney – thanks for the journey. It’s been fun. To the amazing new friends I now have in my life, it is you that have made the journey!
I feel like I'm constantly having the conversation with my parents about foods being actually healthy, or just appearing that way. My dad is usually the main offender - he'll be convinced something is "healthy" because the front label is screaming "low fat" or "only XX calories." What I always need to explain is that low fat doesn't necessarily equal healthy ...
Yesterday I used my new Polar in my PT session for the first time. I wasn’t quite sure how it was going to go as I’ve never worn a heart rate monitor for exercising before, but I found it worked quite well! It’s pretty cool knowing how hard you are working at any one time during a training session and also seeing how quickly you can recover between exercises.
Even more exciting was checking out my results at the end of the session as per the below.
Pretty happy with that!!!
I think it is going to take me a bit of time to figure out all of the features of the FT7 but I learnt what my average and maximum heart rate was and also what portion of the session was fat burning and what portion was fitness. I’m looking forward to seeing my results over time. If anyone has any tips/suggestions for ways to get the best out of my Polar I would love to hear from you!
Ladies, if you haven't seen this video yet, do.
Take a moment.
Think about it.
Mull it over. In your own time.
Share it with someone else.
Then tell me, do you think you're more beautiful than you say?
Yes. Yes, you are.
Thinking our personality style is superior to all others.
You might have this flaw if you frequently complain about people being too loud, too quiet, too overbearing, too passive, too slow, too fast, too careless, too careful, or too anything. If you want to recover from this flaw (which, incidentally, sucks energy out of any environment) repeat the following mantra at least once a day:
