Wanderlust has now come and gone and I have nothing but positive and happy memories of it. It was an incredible experience and I’m very thankful to everyone who made it as fantastic as it was and encourage anyone remotely considering of going to book their tickets ASAP.
The music blaring from the speakers on the green is reverberating between the walls of Turtle Bay Resort in Oahu, Hawaii. However there are no gyrating bodies manically jumping along to the beat and there’s still another two hours to go until sunset.
Instead men and women (all geared in Lululemon, the festival’s founder) are being being taken through their chaturangas, downward facing dogs and warrior poses. Welcome to Wanderlust, a festival with no comparison.
Another milestone reached in my Pilates teacher training. On Tuesday this week I passed twenty hours of supervised teaching! Most importantly they’ve passed with no injuries or lawsuits yet. Cheers to that!
The first two months of a new year can be a nightmare for women everywhere. While we may relish the first couple of days of January, bringing about a fresh start and promises of this being the year that you drop 5 lbs, stop wasting time and finally learning how to make your own almond milk, it can quickly turn sour as time constraints and other life downers catch up with you. Then February comes around, adding insult to injury by reminding single ladies everywhere they are, quite frankly, alone.
This was exactly how I felt when the first of the Valentine’s Day promotions began dropping in through my letterbox. Leafing through a Tiffany catalogue (addressed obviously to my mother, not me. I’m not only single, I’m also unemployed) I felt how the self pity started creeping up. A couple of days later a Valentine’s Day menu at a restaurant was enough of a reminder to make me buy a 200 piece chocolate box and spend the rest of my days in sweat pants.
I love breakfast and my absolute favourite breakfast of the week is on Sundays. Why? Because it’s Pancake Sunday!
However, I woke up this morning only to face the devastating realisation that I have no eggs or (almond) milk at home. Oh, and just in case I’d forgotten, I’m still gluten intolerant and insulin resistant. Pretty pancake-hostile territory. (more…)
Warning: This is a loooong post.
It’s been a while since I last did a post about my Body Control Pilates teacher training, so I figured it was time for an update on how things are going.
I passed my practical assessment back in November and since then I’ve also passed my Active IQ written exam and done the first couple of the very nerve racking supervised teaching hours. (more…)
How annoying is it when one of your goals for the new year is to blog more, but when you return home, raring to go, your internet is shut down for a week and a half?
Anyway, we’re halfway through the first month of 2014, so let me wish you a happy new year! Hopefully you’re still sticking to your resolutions, or perhaps, like me, you’re just starting them.
2013 was a great year for me, and had quite a couple of milestones in it:
and some that were smaller but just as important to me. (more…)
