Sometimes you just gotta give yourself a little nudge. Sometimes that’s all you need.
There have been one or two things on the writing side of my life that I have been holding back on. Why? Because the leap was too much? Did I believe in myself? Did it feel right? Did I actually want it? Was I ready? Too many questions.
Then this week, I saw an opportunity. Gave myself a little nudge and boom – I moved forward. Who knows if it will come to anything, but it doesn’t really matter. I was ready to take the next step.
I felt confident. Not in the situation, but in me. I changed my perspective. It wasn’t about the outcome, it was about my journey and moving forward. Talk about empowering!
So now I go into the weekend with a real buzz about myself. Sometimes you just know what you gotta do.
Let’s get this weekend party started! Friday Favourites style!

Favourite… Feeling – It’s finally over!
Yes the 2017 CrossFit Open is over… and I am so glad! I’m tired, sore and stiff and just looking forward to having my weekends back! It is so taxing both physically and mentally. But it was good fun. Next weeks podcast will be ‘The Open is over, what’s next’ so make sure to check that out if you are a CrossFit nut.
Favourite… Purchase – Fresh, local, sourdough
Ah. Picked up this morning at 7.30am… ready for the weekend. I don’t eat a lot of bread but when I do it has to be fresh, made with the best ingredients and a sourdough. These loaves ain’t cheap but are 100% worth it. Chewy with just a hint of a sourdough tang… perfect.
Favourite… Food/Drink – Kona Joes Acai Bowl
Just like I said we would, we headed to the Food Truck Rumble on Sunday and I got my favourite Acai Bowl from Kona Joes. It was just as wonderful as I remembered.
Updates – 5TTT + Episode 20 of the Chase the Red Grape Podcast
And episode 20 of the podcast is ready to download! This episode focuses on sleep and all the benefits we will gain from making it a priority in our lives. Get talking and empower yourself with the knowledge as to why you need that shut eye in your life!
Favourite…Moment of training – Being back in the swing of things…
Yup this week was great. Still tough but great to know that we didn’t have an Open workout waiting for us at the end of a week of training. Over the next few weeks I don’t want to put any additional pressure on myself. For the next few weeks it’s not about PR’s, it’s about moving and having fun.
Weekend Plans – Saturday – We have our Saturdays back again! Going to go on a nice drive into the Swan Valley, off for lunch, maybe a winery, maybe the chocolate factory and the coffee roasters… Oh who am I kidding, all of them! Sunday – Pancakes and newspapers, out for a coffee, podcasting and chill!
Hope you have a wonderful weekend folks!
Have you ever, when the time was right, only needed a wee nudge in order to do something?
Do you ever get excited for something but then are glad when it’s over?
Do you like a good sourdough?
