A wise man told me this morning that running was a really great way to get that extra push towards changing your body and hitting your goals, and he was right. I always feel better, stronger and fitter when I am in a regular running routine in addition to my @28bysamwood workouts. Usually I stick to my safety 5km, but today I did 10 WHOLE KILOMETRES. It has been about 10 years since I managed to get that distance under my belt. Bam.
My family dropped me off at the Story Bridge and I ran the whole river loop along the bridge and then the Kangaroo Pt cliffs, over the Goodwill Bridge to the Botanical Gardens, then down along Eagle St Pier, and then tacked on the floating walkway around to New Farm and then found my family waiting for me with a picnic in New Farm Park. How cute is that?! Would have been even cuter if I had spotted my 3 year excitedly running towards me but I had a podcast blaring in my ears and was focused on getting to the playground (where I thought they were) and ran right past him 🤦🏻♀️ Mum of the year there guys. I did eventually hear him yelling ‘Mum!!’ and turned around and saw him chasing me with outstretched arms. Everyone at the packed park watched the whole thing. Yay me 😏 But - it was adorable and we had a sweet little picnic and did I mention that I ran 10km?

When at the Bridge... Perfect for couples or catch-ups with friends, pair this delectable share-board with a glass of wine for your next long lunch 💫
Instagram vs. Reality
Me posing after cardio (stairs & hill runs) vs. the real face - I hated every bit of it 😈
So here it is, I don’t like running, never did. I love playing basketball tho, could also spend hours in the gym doing weights or different exercises🤷🏼♀️ So I just choose to do the things I like the most majority if the time!! What’s your least favourite exercise?
I’ve had an urge to run lately.
Weird huh?! Like I’ve mentioned a hundred times, I don’t particularly enjoy it while it’s happening, but I love the feeling afterwards and I love the intensity of the workout. So today, again, I ran. I dragged my family in to the City and they hung out in the botanical gardens while I ran the river loop (from the gardens, along Eagle St pier, across the Story bridge, along kangaroo point cliffs, back over the Goodwill Bridge and then back into the gardens). It was around 6.5km and I took it easy, particularly considering the fact that I ran yesterday too and I have old lady body parts, but it was really great. Winter in Brisbane is 👌🏼 I ran at midday and didn’t even break a sweat, in fact I was cold in all the shady bits. Crazy.
My knees are stiff and my pelvis hurts (thanks babies) but apart from that I feel good. Hoping to squeeze in one mid-week but I also hate feeling cold (and it would have to be early morning) so it may have to wait until next weekend.
I hope you all had a great Sunday. First day of Term 3 for us tomorrow, back into the busy real life routine 😬😱
This is exactly what I expected the beach in Australia to look like🦘🦘

Sunsets and sunrises during winter are stunning 🤩😍
Una de mis cosas favoritas del invierno son los amaneceres y atardeceres 🤯 En esta época, el cielo se pinta de roasado, morado, naranja, rojo 😍🥰 es una cosa LOCAAAAA 😍😍😍😍.
Nada más lindo que ver el atardecer con una persona especial tomando un cafecito o un vino rojo 🤩...
Los reto a que taggeen a esa persona con la que les gustaría ver este atardecer 👫👬... Yo taggeo a mi hermana @lalaesperanza 😍🥰😘 ya es hora de que venga a visitarnos a Brisbane
There's nothing too exciting for me to report after the weekend, apart from the fact that I'm actually a little obsessed with this city. We've almost lived in Brisbane for 5 months now, and there's still so many places that we're yet to explore!
We couldn't fly far from the nest this weekend because @becsabout was on call, but we can't complain too much when we're living in a city as pretty as this one! ❤️ Also, it'll be Winter in 5 weeks and its still not cold here! What is this witchcraft weather!?! 🌴☀️
Now that's the Brisbane winter we know and love 💕 Blue skies, crisp winter air and highs of 24°C is the perfect combo for being outdoors and making the most of your Wednesday ☀️ 📷 @lady_brisbane #thisisbrisbane
