Happy Funday Monday Readers!
I trust you all had a good weekend?!
The weekends just seem to come and go too quickly – it’s just not fair.
Today’s post is going to be about ‘GET OUT, GET ACTIVE & TAKE A FRIEND’ as on Saturday afternoon-night I spent time with Miss Jasmine being Active (not like that! #getyourmindouttathegutter …) and exploring Kangaroo Point.
So before I launch into my chit-chat, meet Jazz…
I met Jazz back in 2008 through the Queensland Supra Club (I know right – who would have thought?!) and well going on 6 years of friendship and we are doing well, growing up and being big kids in the ‘BIG-BAD-WORLD’. Here are a few snaps of us #tripdownmemorylane #feelslikeonlyyesterday
From girls sleepovers, to cruises, parties, dinner dates and everything in-between – it’s never dull with this one!
Recently Jasmine was asking me how to stay motivated and how she wants to starting living a more active lifestyle and making better choices but was just finding it hard – so we decided to make ourselves a pack and make ourselves accountable to do at least 2 training sessions together a week. Whether it be going for a wog (which will be a jog by the end of week lady!), doing stair sets, circuit work etc anything just getting up and being active.
Now a random fact for you … According to Psychologists friendships that last longer than 7 years will last a lifetime – so we are almost guaranteed lifelong friend Jazz providing we make it through the year … So on that note Miss Jazz – Are you sure you want to train together?? #idontwanttoendupaloneoryouhatingmyguts #yestherewillbealotmorestairs #andyesyouhavetofinishthesets haha)
Anyway, on Saturday afternoon Jasmine and I went for a fun adventure exploring the beautiful Kangaroo Point. We enjoyed a massive walk, bursts of runs and then Jasmine’s absolute favourite – a hill and stairs circuit set of 3 (SO PROUD OF YOU!! #girlpower) followed by some sneaky squats. Now I’m not going to lie #itwasabitch and man I could #feeltheburn but Jazz was such a tropper I’m so keen for todays session – I’m thinking circuit work and THE HILL. Now according to your text you are still coming over this arvo for a session so no pulling a “sicky” on me if you read this before our session haha.
I have always been able to train by myself however have found when I have a companion to go at the session with me I’m:
1) More motivated
2) The time goes quicker
3) It pushes me more – as yes I do have a competitive spirit and
4) FUN FACTOR
So do you train with a friend? What do you do? Comment below – could do with some more inspiration!!
I love that walk. Beautiful spot!
It’s definitely a good spot! I enjoy going to Point Danger and doing runs down there too – its worth a trip there! So beautiful and calming 🙂
