The one with Monday moments and minties

Woke up excited for a good run. Best photo of me ever right? That is my super deep look that I have plastered on my face when I run.


For some reason I have really been loving the treadmill in the last few days (I think it has something to do with getting further away from the house = separation anxiety from my studies and essays that are due… weird I know but I feel more stressed about them when I am 4 miles from home and have to run all the way back). Zoning out on the treadmill has been weirdly therapeutic plus it is lovely because I have no more worries about spraining my ankles because I am pretty sure that is hard to do on a treadmill. Now I am going to have to be extra careful having said that cos it would be embarrassing to post tomorrow and be like yeah, I sprained my ankle on the treadmill after all.

My running fuel (totally necessary for a three mile treadmill run 😉 ), minties that I got for free from the bank. Has anyone seen the “It’s moments like these you need minties” ads? Usually something awkward happens and then it reads “It’s moments like these you need minties” and I feel like that sums up my whole life 🙂


Balcony yoga and a beautiful sunset with candy floss clouds  before my evening class.


Bestie packed me the best dinner ever for me to take to uni. That is a seaweed heart on my rice which made it all the more delicious: made with love.


Post-uni picnic on the floor with besties’ treats that she made at her uni. I am sooooo winning with this whole living with a pastry chef thing. I told her I am more than willing to exchange my therapy skills for tart and practice on her, if she is willing to delve into her deepest secrets and the depths of her mind, but for some reason she wants to wait until I have actually finished my studies and am somewhat more qualified, weird. 


And a close- up of the gloriousness: 


Followed by more study in bed. Coming home to do more study isn’t that fun BUT studying in bed is the best, maybe I will just be a student forever. Pyjamas all day every day does sound pretty appealing. 



How was your Monday? 

Have you seen the minties ads? Is that a NZ thing? -I have no idea what is kiwi stuff and what is not anymore.

Do you prefer running outside or the treadmill? – Usually I always prefer to run outside so I am putting this down to a random phase I am going through and am just gonna roll with it.

How many miles do you use fuel for? – I usually fuel properly if I am running over 8 miles but lollies are acceptable at all times in my book 🙂

    yum that pastry does look good.!!
    My Monday has been ok so far, nothing too exciting going on. I always prefer running outside, and so do my down stairs neighbors, they wouldn’t really appreciate it if I got a treadmill upstairs :p lol
    I’m really bad about fueling.. I didn’t use any fuel for my 15 miler this weekend. I felt good though.! lol. I usually do fuel for anything more than 15 miles. oh and I’ve never heard of minties, probably a NZ thing ;P

    • Oh definitely! I used to do a lot of body rock (have you heard of that?) and I was always worried about the neighbours hearing me jumping around like a maniac! Wow yay for a 15miler! Go you!!
      Haha minties are awesome I promise 🙂
