And welcome to Friday! The best day of the week, in my opinion, as you know you have the whole weekend ahead of you!
I am super excited because I get to go to the beach tomorrow! Throughout this whole heatwave I have been day dreaming about the sea… I swear the amount of time I have lost this week, away in my thoughts… good thoughts to be having though!
I never thought I was a fan of the sea and swimming in it (or treading water, splashing, wave jumping as I tend to do!). I actually wasn’t that fussed about the beach side of things when we first moved here. But all that changed once I finally got into the crisp blue water… and was completely taken out by a wave!
I was shocked, couldn’t speak, was completely drenched and gasping for breath… but once I realised I was ok I then realised how much fun it actually had been. It took ‘being thrown in the deep end’ to realise that the water was nothing to fear… and now I adore it. (And I just forget about the whole Australia/ shark part of things :-S )
To continue on the theme of things I love and adore, lets check out my Friday Favourites this week!
Favourite… Moment – Zoolander 2
David and I won tickets to see the special screening of Zoolander 2 in Perth on Wednesday and it was everything I had hoped it would be and more. If you were a fan of the first, go see it! We spent the whole day practising our ‘Blue Steel’ and took this snap on the way home! Haha!
Favourite… Feeling – Cold
Yup I don’t feel no shame in saying that my favourite feeling this week was on the rare occasion when I felt cold. The only way to achieve this was to stand in a cold shower. And I did.
Favourite… Purchase – My desk fan
David bought this for me as a present on Wednesday – I love him! Who knew such a little USB fan could provide everything in terms of my cooling needs! And it’s a pretty pink colour too!
Favourite… Food/ Drink – Frozen Cherries
I bought these for the first time last week and I am hooked. I eat them frozen as you can easily chew them – like little mini fruit ice pops! If it’s not too chilly where you are I seriously recommend going to the frozen section of your supermarket and picking them up – next on my list is to make them into a smoothie!
Favourite… Recipe – Chili
So I was cooing over this chili on Monday in my week in review post and I am still loving all the leftovers now. I remembered Juli saying in her recipe post to try it cold – so I did, with butternut squash, salad and cottage cheese… I think it’s my favourite way of eating it!
Favourite… Workout – This little doozy…
Against a 3 min clock
10 hang power cleans
10 front squats
max effort double unders in remaining time
rest 1 minute
Repeat for 4 rounds in total (score is total double unders)
It was not easy but I loved it. I went with a weight that was heavy and 2/3 weeks ago I would have been scared of… but I nailed it!
Weekend Plans – Meeting David after work for some drinkies with his colleagues. Beach tomorrow and then the weekly shop. Sunday we are having a Valentines Day out to Fremantle – breakfast followed by a wonder around the market – will snapchat it so check me out! (chaseredgrape)
Happy weekend everyone!
