Try It: Christmas Eve Yin Yoga

Merry Christmas!

I had a very different Christmas Eve this year. It’s my second year having Christmas in Australia (still a bit weird having Christmas in summer!) but my first year doing something active the evening of Christmas Eve. I am more used to getting together with family for a meal then I am putting on my lululemon and lying over a bolster on a mat, but that’s exactly what I got up too. Lying over blocks and bolsters, slowly allowing everything in my body to open up and stretch, doing Yin yoga by candle light on Christmas Eve.  Continue reading “Try It: Christmas Eve Yin Yoga”


Why I Still Play Pokemon Go

Easily one of the biggest mobile games of 2016, Pokemon Go was a huge trend. I wrote about it even before I was playing it! (See the original post here!) I now have my own account (yay!) and even though it seems like the trend has died off quite a bit lately aka there are no longer videos of people swarming parks everywhere, I still play daily. And probably not for the reasons you think! Continue reading “Why I Still Play Pokemon Go”

Try It: Lori Harder’s #14DayHoliBurnChallenge (Instagram Challenge)

My first Instagram challenge!

I’ve seen fitness challenges all over Instagram ever since I started my account. Usually between 7-30 days, each fitness challenges features moves/workouts/poses to be done in a specific order over a specific number of days and then photographed, hashtagged and spammed all over Instagram! (Or something to that effect.) While most of the yoga challenges scare me off a bit (often the poses look a little bit out of my beginner league) I was excited to find Lori Harder’s 14 Day HoliBurn Challenge. Finally a challenge that didn’t involve handstands or hypermobility! Continue reading “Try It: Lori Harder’s #14DayHoliBurnChallenge (Instagram Challenge)”

Keeping On Track During December: 5 Tips On How To Not Throw Away All Your Hard Work During The Holidays

Once again, it’s December! Where has all the time gone? Its stills throws me thinking that Christmas is almost here when I swear I was just seeing Halloween photos. It also throws me walking into Kmart and Target looking for a bikini (new cosplay project!) and all I see is candy canes, fake Christmas trees and penguins. I don’t think my brain is used to Christmas in summer yet. (Yay for living in Australia!)

Weekly Workout: One Weight Full Body Workout

It’s been a while, but here is a new weekly workout! It’s short, intense, but fun! (But maybe that’s the personal trainer in me talking.) All you need is one weight (I use an 8kg kettlebell, though a dumbbell can be subbed in quite easily), a mat, and a bit of space. Continue reading “Weekly Workout: One Weight Full Body Workout”
