It's the End of the World....Vegas Style

Cannot believe I am at work right before NYE! Argh, I miss working at Unis!

Love this sign on a local business

Considering this for my bday party dress

Love this but too expensive:(

My actual outfit for shopping - Target dress from years ago

NYE costume for Vegas party

Glad I found this Pleasure State Chemise - perfect for showgirl

Anyway, I am not going to do a best of 2012, I am just looking forward to 2013. No use looking back now! is my 2013!

Goals 2013

I’m calling this goals rather than resolutions. Mainly because I prefer something aspirational than something that is setting me up for failure.

·         Travel as often as possible….see more of the world
So far:

o   KL/Penang (March)

o   Work trips to Indonesia, China, Japan, Thailand, HK

o   USA (July) for high school reunion. Actually, does anyone want to come with me? J

·         Pay off all non- tax deductible debt

·         Fashion related spending ban (hahahaha says everyone else)

·         Say yes more often than I say no (mainly to friends of course, if I start saying yes to randoms on the street, please stop me. I could end up in the Salvation Army or a pyramid scheme)

·         Be passionate about whatever I do….and if I can’t muster up the enthusiasm then don’t do it!

·         Learn a new language (probably go back to Spanish)

·         Learn to take proper photographs

·         Pay attention to new music so I don’t end up stuck in the 90s

·         See as many live performances as possible
So far:

o   Illusionists

o   Circe de Soleil

o   BDO

o   Laneway

o   Bruce Springsteen

o   Big Band Burlesque

o   Birds of Tokyo


Fitness/Health Resolutions 2013

These deserve a separate category since I have so many of them…

·         5-6 exercise sessions per week (5 x Crossfit, 1 x Gym where possible)

·         Try something new once a month (rock climbing, Xtend Barre, Burlesque, Ariel Silks)

·         10 strict pull ups in a row

·         110 kg deadlift/65 kg clean

·         Handstand push ups unaided

·         90% of the time no wheat, sugar, dairy (clearly the rest of the time I will be drinking;)

·         Tough Mudder

·         Another Color Run (yes, it is spelt the American way…)

Feathered fantasy

I am getting things together to wear for the Vegas themed party on showgirl headdress has arrived. Must keep the cats away....

In other news I am still at work:( I have awful ulcers in my mouth that just won't go away, it's been ages so I am finally dragging my butt to the doctor this afternoon. I expect the answer is just stress, but I am sure i will enjoy forking out $60 to hear that.

New Dorothy Perkins top my awesome friend Kato got me

With Colette Dinnigan pants. I feel a bit I dream of Jeannie for some reason
And the joyous news is that we finally won the Quiz night! Yay! Hopefully this is the beginning of a roll....
Going to go home tonight and go straight to bed. Ulcers are keeping me awake. And no sleep makes me super grumpy.

Pants Best

I achieved three personal bests (and got to ring the PB bell) at Crossfit this morning. Front squats (52.5kg), 3 full chinups (I may have shouted 'I got one' as I did them), and I was also awarded a Pants Best by the instructor:)

Clearly awesome pants

So close yet so far

I cannot believe it is nearly Xmas...and that I only get public holidays off. Boo to that I say! It will be the first time in 10 years I haven't had a good block of time off to recharge. I am tired already, so I imagine it will only get worse.
We did 200 walking lunges on Friday. World of pain still today- I can't walk or get up. But I did see Skyfall with mum yesterday....mmmmm Bond.

Giant Jenga at the work BBQ

Moving up to the 18s for my chest press
