I just need everyone to watch this video [x]. She’s a 5 foot, 100 lb gymnast and she beasts through this insanely difficult, heavily upper body focused course like it was her morning jog. The camera keeps cutting to these massive, musclebound men in the audience with their mouths hanging open.

7 things to do before winter ends
By News and Features Writer Sam Bailey
1. Try a new workout
According to research from the UK, 38 per cent of women get bored with their routine and don’t know how to switch it up. Don’t let winter + the meh-factor steer you away from the gym. Escape an exercise rut with our pick of the latest fun classes you can do in the great indoors on page 68 of our new August issue.
2. Grow a herb garden
Dream of growing your own herb garden, to pick and peruse whenever you want? Now is the perfect time to plant the seeds. Popular cuts like thyme, oregano, rosemary, sage, coriander and parsley all thrive in winter. Invest in a cute pot, add potting mix, sprinkle seeds on top and position near natural light.
3. Experience the footy
Be it AFL or rugby league, it’s an Aussie rite of passage to watch a game from the sidelines, so don a striped scarf and get into the team spirit. Aside from the buzz of being in a big crowd, it might inspire you to kick the footy around with friends, too. Did you know that in Australia, a whopping 169,292 women play a form of AFL?
4. Get hot
It might be chilly outside, but it’s the perfect temp to give Bikram yoga a go. Michael Houghton from Yoga Sports Association Australia says winter is the most popular time for newbies as the 40 degree heat elevates your heart, metabolic and respiratory rate, which all work to raise your core temperature. “These conditions allow your body and mind to open, strengthen and heal,” he says. “Escaping the winter cold is not only really appealing but it comes with more benefits, too.”
5. Mix it up on the snow
You might be a star on the ice-skating rink or a pro on the slopes, but have you tried snowshoeing (walking with snow sticks)? What about tobogganing or snowgaining (high-altitude orienteering)? There’s more to icy adventures than skiing and boarding. Venture out of your comfort zone and give a new slope sport your best effort.
6. Make a mighty roast
Root veggies are in season and nothing beats a roast on a Sunday night – just like Mum used to make. Borrow her legendary recipe or head online to find one you can make your own (we love petite-kitchen.com for healthy roasting recipes). Then hot foot it to your local farmer’s market to stock up on winter’s veggie bounty: think carrot, swede, parsnip, turnip, sweet potato, beetroot and Brussels sprouts.
7.Start a gratitude diary
Staying happy and healthy this winter could be as simple as starting a diary. US research has found that keeping a gratitude journal is an easy way to lift positivity. In the study, a group who wrote down five things they were thankful for each week felt better about their lives, reported less health issues and exercised an average 90 minutes more than a group that kept track of their hassles. That’s something to be grateful for.
For more fun things you can do before winter ends, check out the new August issue of Women’s Fitness magazine, p.30-33.

  1. If you don’t have passion, you have nothing.
  2. Don’t ever, ever fucking diet. Instead tell the little voice in your head that you need to lose 5 pounds to fuck off and go for ice cream with your best pal. Laugh while doing so.
  3. While you’re at it, throw out those rubbish Women’s magazines that…

My favorite exercise is a cross between a lunge and a crunch.

It’s called lunch.

So last night was zumba and boxing, first time I’ve been to the gym this week (work commitments plus just being lazy).

And wouldn’t you know it, I forget my sports bra.
So Zumba is okay, just can’t “shake it” as much as the instructor seems to want and I have to hold down the puppies when doing jumps. 

But boxing is AWFUL! we have to do burpees, jump squats, skippin, high knees… pretty much torture when you aren’t wearing a proper sports bra.
My sister was just laughing at me the whole time as i struggle not to indecently expose myself :/

NEVER AGAIN!!

We welcome you to the second chapter,
thanks for turning the other page

We acknowledge you as the only reason
for the progress that we've made.

You're our constant reminder;
we came, we saw, we conquered.
Everything has gone so far from
where we were before.
