Wishlist: Vintage Look Bike

Hello lovely people. My health and wellness has hit a slight snag this week. I'm dealing with stomach cramps and all the things that come with it. So I'm taking it easy for the moment because I have a busy weekend and need to rest so I can enjoy it. 

Since I started my 12 Week Body Transformation I've been thinking of fun ways to keep active on the weekends. Plus we are coming up to summer and I want to do more outdoor activities. One of them is to have more picnics. I thought it would be fun to get a vintage look bike to help out with being more active and to get to the picnic destination. I found Reid Cycles and their vintage ladies bikes. 
Now I just have to chose the one I would like. I'm leaning more towards the baby blue as I wish the pink was more of a pastel pink colour. Which do you prefer?

I probably won't buy this until after I get back from America (or perhaps I will hint this as Christmas gift :p) But it's nice to have it on the wish list for the moment. 

I hope you have a wonderful rest of week!

Health and wellness goals

Hello hello! Thank you so much for all the positive comments from my last post. Since then I've started to make a change with my health, fitness and wellbeing. After much thinking I decided to sign up for the Michelle Bridges 12 Week Body Transformation. It started on Monday and today is Day 6. I feel good. It's pretty intense with six days of exercise and a nutrition plan. I've done six days of working out and I'm sore and tired but I honestly feel good. Nutrition wise I'm trying to follow the plan but it has been difficult in the first week. Although she released the exercise and nutrition plan for next week during the week so I will be able to plan my meals better. 

It's 12 weeks so I hope I have the motivation to complete it. At the end of the 12 weeks I will be going to America on my girls trip :) So that will be a wonderful reward I think. 

I will try and update here as much as possible to keep myself accountable. As for me being a procrastinator I'm working on that and trying not to be so hard on myself. 

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

A few thoughts.... (a bit of frustration and thinking out loud)

Hello lovely people. It's been ages since I last blogged. I can't seem to get back in the swing of things. I got back from Melbourne about 2 weeks ago and it was amazing! I will have to blog about it soon. So I've been feeling a little off lately. Mainly frustrated with myself. I've come to a point where I'm getting sick of the excuses I make to not do things. I write a to do list but I list way too many things and get completely overwhelmed and end up not doing anything. I was talking to my good friend Jasmine and she has suggested I break down my list and do a little each day. I think this is a good tactic and I've started it this weekend and I think it is working for me. 

I think my biggest problem is procrastination. I find it difficult to push myself to do things and end up doing nothing. Some days I feel like I accomplish very little and it then makes me feel guilty which then turns into frustration. Making a change is hard and I've been 'trying' to be organised, to keep my house clean, to cook something new, to exercising more and I put so much pressure on myself.

I know I've written quite a few posts about my procrastination and lack of discipline but there's no time like today to make a change. I'm seriously thinking about doing the Michelle Bridges 12 Week Body Transformation (she's a trainer on the Australian Biggest Loser) because I need some guidance with my health and fitness.

Hopefully I will be more positive in my posts soon. I'm going through some personal change and growth. 

I hope you are all well!
