G’day from sunny and beautiful Australia, everyone!
If the posts are a bit patchy for the next few days, please forgive me – we’re headed to the coast, and to Binna Burra, so I have no guarantees for internet availability.
This morning, Ant and I did a fun spin class at our new gym. It was H-A-R-D. The teacher was a screamer, but definitely knew how to lead a fun, inspiring and challenging workout. Yesterday’s workout was a bit more lame.
Workout of the Yesterday:
- 15 minutes elliptical
- Alternating superset
- 30 alternating lunges with 10kg (around 22lbs total)
- 15 side arm raises with 8kg (around 17lbs total)
- 1.5 Hours of beginner yoga at YogaPhysio (highly recommended if you visit Brisbane!)
By the time the weights were done, I had to head back to the ranch to skype my knock-out sister. Such fun. After that, Anthony, his mother, his two aunts and I headed into town for a very lovely yoga class at YogaPhysio, which was exactly what I needed – stretchy and yummy.
A buckwheat pancake and a half with plain yogurt and a dash of almond butter, plus a cup of gingerbread tea with soymilk and stevia. After I skyped with my sister, I came upstairs to find my man making my “brekky.” How lucky can a girl get?
After yoga, we headed to lunch with the whole family at an Italian deli called Togini’s in Milton. It was such fun to meet so many of Anthony’s relatives, including his gorgeous year old cousin Olive.
For lunch, I had a stuffed half red-pepper, loaded with tuna, rice, and covered in mozarella cheese, which I gave to Anthony. It was quite delicious, and a perfect after yoga snack.
For dinner, we went to Anthony’s friend Louise’s, who made us one of the most delicious chicken currys I’ve ever had. Unfortunately, there are no photos, as I was too shy to bring my camera. Which brings me to the point of today’s post.
I don’t know about you, fellow bloggers, but I find it so very hard to take photos of everything. The blogs I enjoy most, like Peanut Butter Fingers, Carrots ‘n’ Cake, and Meals and Miles, all post their meals religiously, which I enjoy both for inspiration and encouragement. However, in meeting all of Anthony’s family, I find it awkward at each meal to whip out my camera to snap shots of the people and the food.
If you’re a blogger, how do you cope with being the awkward chick (or dude, for that matter) who takes pictures of EVERYTHING? Any tips would be most welcome.
