The one with the bestie anniversary and transcending via burpees

What I have been doing with my life other than studying a bajillion hours a day?

Oh ya know.

Chillaxin at the Opera house.


And by chillaxin I mean MELTING AND COOKING.


Drinking multiple cold beverages a day to attempt to not drown in my own sweat.


Eating delicious Mexican food


Checking out the occasional glorious beach


Celebrating me and besties’ one year anniversary – that little face belongs to one of the most amazing people one could ever hope to meet (plus she makes chocolate desserts that are to DIE for, NBD).


And doing a whole lot of F45. It burns more than the sun on a 36 degrees C day, but I LOVE it.

In fact, today I am pretty sure I achieved transcendence. During burpees.

I was in such a state of sweatilicious focus that for a minute, I could barely remember who or where I was.


Whenever doing burpees, I constantly remind myself of this:

It is not supposed to feel comfortable (and it really really does not).

This also tends to come to mind.

Isn’t working out the best?


(I made bestie work out with me and it threatened our entire friendship… Okay that is an exaggeration because our friendship is so deep and enduring, but she definitely did want to kill me because of how much it burned).

What awesome workout have you been doing lately?ย 

How hot does it get where you live? Australia is SO HOT (breaking news, I know). Being from NZ where the climate is way more palatable I am dying a little bit… my facial pinkness is out of control.

  1. Sometimes you need that realization- that it’s not fun but it’s not supposed to be! I sometimes get that when I’m doing long sessions on the stationary bike. It sucks balls but it gets the job done, and I feel so much better afterwards!


  2. Ha, I hate burpees!! They are so hard. Most of my besties do run with me, but I have a handful that would disown me if I made them even go for a walk. Ha!


  3. LOVE the sombreros! ๐Ÿ™‚ Gotta say, I never do burpees! Ever since I had a knee pain last year I avoid any jumping around like that. I fear them! Yep, I’m getting old!!
    That beach looks pretty awesome!

    • They’re so cool right?! Although my one was squeezing my head hence the very spaced out expression! I totally think jumping around should be approached very cautiously- there are some things I definitely avoid because of my ankles!
      The beaches in Sydney are amazing- another reason for you and the fam to come visit! ๐Ÿ™‚
