Friday Favourites + Episode 14 of the CTRG Podcast!

Hi all,

How has your week been?

I must admit, Monday took a lot of courage to get through. 7am Australia time we sat down to watch the Super Bowl live… I think I went through every emotion known to man in the space of 4.5 hours. I was super proud of my Falcons, but oh boy was that a tough day to continue on from. I wish I had been in the States and could of gone to bed!

But we picked ourselves up and continued on through the week. The Falcons will rise up again!Friday - chase the red grape

But hey, I know most of you didn’t come here for the Super Bowl talk! Let’s get cracking with this weeks Friday Favourites!

Favourite… Moment – Luminocityluminocity - chase the red grape

David and I volunteered to help out at the Luminocity event here in Perth on Saturday night. We registered all the cyclists and at 12am off they went from the starting line, every bike and rider covered in twinkly lights, glow sticks, basically anything that helped them shine! I wish we had been doing it too actually but next year for sure! It was such a good feeling being around all that excitement, happiness and just to generally help out a good cause!

Favourite… Feeling – Happy!IIN - chase the red grape

On Sunday we caught up with my fellow graduates from my nutrition school IIN for a good catch up and goodbye to one of our most loved group members. It’s always so inspiring and motivating to be surrounded by these fantastic people!

Favourite…Purchase – Haircuthair - chase the red grape

Yesterday I went for a long overdue hair cut! Happy with the result and cannot believe how much my hair has grown since I arrived in Australia! Any readers still remember my pixie cut?!

Favourite…Food/ Drink – Tofu Wraptofu - chase the red grape

For our meeting on Sunday we went to JuJuberry here in Perth. The food is so amazing, I’m always spoilt for choice! Every now and again I am always drawn to tofu, especially when it hasn’t been deep fried which is so often the case. This GF wrap was amazing and the tofu was full of flavour – I guarantee anyone who says they don’t like tofu would love this!

Favourite…Workout – Snatch Grip Deadlift + Feeling Better

Yup I never in my wildest dreams thought I would be saying a snatch grip deadlift was my favourite (#tallgirlproblems) but this week I surprised myself! Goes to show that if you focus on technique as your main goal then awesomeness often follows!

Also just in general I have been feeling a lot better since last week. My intercostal muscle that I pulled seems to be on the mend and I am just pacing myself in training. All good!

Weekend Plans – Saturday – weekly shop, lunch out and then a chill out afternoon – so needed – and maybe a bit of meal prep. Sunday – pancakes and newspapers, coffee date and podcasting!

Happy weekend folks!

What are you up to this weekend?

What do you do when you feel disappointed?

Tofu, yay or nay?

    Your hair is super cute! I need a hair cut to help me over the Falcons loss. How the HELL do you blow a lead like that??? Now I’m mad all over again.

    Sounds like you have a lovely, relaxing weekend. We’re hosting a birthday party tomorrow… during which we’ll be roasting a whole PIG in the yard. I hope we don’t get arrested…

      I have no idea what happened Laura… I feel like I have gone through all the emotions… angry, upset, sad, reflective and now I’m getting to the ‘moving on’ to next year… but it will always leave me a little bit sore.
      Oh that pig looked incredible! I hope you have some pics of the final feast! If we were getting married again a whole hog roast would definitely be how we would cater!

  2. Cora says:

    Hair looks sooo good! And yes now that you mention it I do remember your pixie cut! You rock both looks.
    I like tofu but much more so when its done up in a restaurant. Whatever they do… more oil probably… its always better than my own. I have a block in my fridge right now I’m trying to figure out something super tasty to do with. Hope you had a lovely weekend!

      Thanks Cora – I always reflect back on short hair and wonder if I want it like that again… then I remember how painstaking it was to grow out! So if I did it again it would have to be for forever!
      Hope you manage to figure out what to do with your tofu. I am only drawn to it when it’s not deep fried… so I am usually disappointed. But now I know where to get my fix! I doubt I will be using it at home any time soon… unless you create a fab recipe 😉

      Thank you my lovely!
      And you are so right about feeling happy… just when you think it can’t get better along comes food and great company… the company bringing wine of course 😉
