I think it’s really important that we take time out for ourselves. And when I have some well deserved ‘me’ time, I usually take myself out for breakfast or lunch... It rarely happens these days, but I managed to sneak out last week and pop into my all time favourite restaurant @bistrotplume. I was welcomed in, sat in a gorgeous spot by the window, read my magazine on my iPad and had the most delicious lunch I’ve had in a long time! Nothing in this world beats a good piece of fresh fish, cooked perfectly and accompanied by a light but incredibly flavorsome salad. If anyone goes in for lunch anytime soon, make sure you try the grilled swordfish, it is quite literally to die for! I will be making my solo visits to @bistrotplume more regular from now on, but I won’t mind if anyone wants to join me!!! 😉
MONDAY MADE BETTER// With those silly season feels!

FOOD | Locally owned Taste of Tibet will have their vegetarian momos, vegetarian rice paper rolls, beef momos and fried noodles at the Nightjar Festival in both Torquay and Geelong. Made locally and made with love!
Here are two exercises from today’s Core+Functional Strength Class. I will post the others during the week.
➡️ #1 : TRX Hamstring Runner - keep your hips up as high as possible and bring one knee at a time towards the chest. As the name suggests this will target the hamstrings.
✅ Hamstrings are responsible for bending our knee and contributing to functional motion such as walking.
🏃🏻♀️ If you play sport you’ll definitely want strong hamstrings to assist with explosive power and speed as the hamstrings will shift the load from your knees to your hips.
➡️ #2 : Back Extension - keep your arms by your side and lift your chest off the floor.
✅ This exercise is excellent for strengthening the Erector Spinae which can reduce risk of lower back injury during more complex moves such as deadlifts and squats. The Glutes and Hamstrings also play a role in this exercise.
Whether you play sport, have a physical job or just want to improve your posture, functional training is for you. It makes you stronger so you can do what you love to do 💪.
Focus. Where does your mind go when you struggle? Do your thoughts lift you or burden you? You can do anything for 60 seconds - but it is completely up to you whether you make it 60 seconds of internal hell ... or you stay cool and just focus on your breath & appreciate the strength you have today. 👊🏼✌🏼

No #worktrip to #Geelong is complete without an epic lunch at @thehotchickenproject with @laura_viva78 and the awesome crew. Was fantastic to enjoy the OG chicken skin burger I think since they first opened. Chicken poppers with salt and vinegar also a winner! Love you guys and highly recommend a visit over Summer for good times.
