Wow it’s been a while since my last post. Unfortunately a massive technical error on my part meant I lost my entire site layout as well as most of my photos, so I’ve spent the last 6 weeks trying to build it all back up. Lesson learned, I must always ALWAYS back up my site before updating, apparently their “recommendation to back up” is more of a necessity, go figure.
Tech issues aside, I thought I’d share some of the highlights of my week (past few weeks actually)
Going back home to Canberra. Thanks to a CSIRO event, I got a free trip up to Canberra. I decided to extend my visit so I could have a whole week up there to catch up on the uni side of things as well as see some friends (and my family of course). It was an incredibly busy week, but I managed to squeeze in time for some cookies (the Christmas colours weren’t intentional, I was aiming for orange and light green, but was a bit too heavy handed with the food colouring (I used this recipe, substituting a third of the white sugar for brown sugar).
Work Christmas party. Continuing on the theme of Christmas in November, I had my PT Christmas party on Nov 22. With a room full of fitness enthusiasts you can be sure some epic dance battles were had. I don’t think I’ve ever seen that much energy on a dance floor.
The lovely Spring weather. Last weekend I got the chance to lounge around in the sun reading a book. It was absolutely divine.
Reading. I’ve somehow managed to read two books in the last two weeks, and I’ve now started my third. I’d forgotten how absorbed I can get in a good book
Just a short list this week, I should have some recipes and exercises up in the coming weeks so stay tuned

Now that my calf isn’t sore I’ve been really focussed on getting back into running and building up my speed, so for today I thought I’d share my TEMPO treadmill workout. Last week the focus was on short intervals mixed in with... Continue reading →
What do you do when you can’t decide if you feel like anzac biscuits or choc chip biscuits? You make these mega choc chip raisin oat cookies and get the best of both worlds! These cookies are easily in my top... Continue reading →
It’s Friday!! I’m a little excited (can you tell?). I was scrolling through my old posts when I came across my last (and incidently my first) weekly highlights post, published 6 weeks ago. Part of the reason I started this... Continue reading →
I don’t know about you, but I have a love-hate relationship with the treadmill (I love the results, but hate every minute on there). Treadmills are great for keeping an eye on your pace and completing distance-based sprints, as well... Continue reading →
For the past few months I’ve been gradually increasing my running distance and working on improving my speed (see my new 10km PB ). I’ve made a real effort to increase my distance by no more than 10% each week,... Continue reading →
I came across this playground workout the other day and it reminded me of a circuit I used to do back in Canberra. Near where I was living in Canberra there was a great path with a series of playgrounds spaced... Continue reading →
