Happy Friday to you!
Got much planned for the weekend? I could…. but I don’t want to. Ever have that feeling?
So here’s the thing, David and I need a holiday. Like now. We both have just enough energy to get by, but definitely need a break away. Our last holiday was Melbourne back in June and even that was only for 3 days… excluding the weekend.
Now don’t get me wrong, I am still motivated, excited by what each day brings here but boy oh boy do we both need a chance to switch our brains off! A chance to think about adventure, rather than work. To sit and watch the world go by and know that’s the only thing we have planned. And that’s exactly what we are going to do… in two weeks time.
So until then we have planned to treat our evenings and weekends as major chill out zones. Making life completely easy for ourselves. And knowing I have a weekend of that ahead is utter bliss.
So to kick off the weekend lets begin with some Friday Favourites!
Favourite… Moment – Beach Coffee
Every Sunday David and I head to our favourite beach for coffee at our favourite cafe. Here we just sit, chill and chat while people watching and doggy spotting! Any frown can be turned upside down spending time here. Above is a selfie from last Sunday of us goofing around – love it!
Favourite… Feeling – Bicycle! Bicycle!
‘I want to ride my bicycle…’ (Queen will be in your head all day now, you’re welcome!)
Monday was a public holiday here (The Queen’s birthday… well not actually her ‘birth date’ just the day Western Australia celebrates it on…) so David and I had the perfect opportunity to get out on our bikes. I love the feeling of cycling away without a care in the world. We have fantastic bike paths here that run alongside the river and we simply took our time and enjoyed the view!
Favourite… Purchase – Strawberries
Strawberry season here at last! And they are plump, juicy and oh so sweet. Such a bargain too but well worth paying that little extra to get them direct from the farmer at the market. We had hoped to go picking again but so far no luck with the weather – coldest spring here so far since 1944!
Favourite… Food/Drink – Gelato!
From the cold to… well… gelato!
After cycling around on Monday we were in need of a holiday treat so headed to our favourite and very authentic gelateria here in Perth, Gusto. I went for a scoop of marscapone/ cocoa and pistachio – my favourite! Oh it was good!
Favourite… Link – What does a Health Coach do?
I loved writing this weeks #5TTT post and your comments were really fantastic too – so much support! Check out the article HERE if you missed it, oh and don’t forget to share!
Favourite…Workout – Mobility Class
Every Saturday David and I are taking a mobility class at our CrossFit box. Although ‘mobility’ is not really accurate, more a strength and movement class. It is amazing how much strength you can build up through simple movement patterns and bodyweight. There is no huff and puff but always we leave hot and sweaty! I have noticed a major improvement in my training too – my body just seems to move better with a lot less restriction. Cool beans!
Weekend Plans – Minimal… Saturday – Farmers market, mobility class, weekly shop and maybe a trip to Aldi (those in the know realise how exciting that is…). Sunday – Pancakes and papers, beach coffee and whatever else we fancy!
Have a fab weekend folks!
Do you ever plan to do nothing?
Favourite gelato flavour?
What produce are you most looking forward to coming into season? (Stone fruit are just a mere few months away for me!)
