My first Park Run...
My town had it's first ever Park Run on Saturday 23rd August 2014 at Rosepoint Park,

Happy Anniversary! Back to the beginning...

On the 21st July 2013 I did something that I never dreamed that I would ever do in my entire life.  I entered, participated in, and completed a Fun Run, specifically the Winery Running Festival 5km event called the Winery Wander, and I did it with a time of 1:15:39.

#100HappyDays - Day 51 - 57

Okay, so I was about to delete this post - I had drafts already done up for each week - when I noticed that I had done most of the work on it already...

Plus there are some really great moments that happened during this week.

This really will  be the last 100 Happy Days post.  Scouts honour...

#100HappyDays - Halfway there...

As usual I have gotten WAY behind with these posts, and actually fell of the 100 Happy Days wagon somewhere around day 83.

Argh!  So close!

I thought that instead of doing up several posts to bring you all up to date, I would just finish off this one which brings to the halfway mark, and leave it at that.

The one where I climb Burning Mountain...

Earlier in the year I wrote out, and published a list of fitness related goals that I would like to do in the coming 12 months, one of them was to climb a mountain, specifically Burning Mountain, located in the Upper Hunter Valley about 15 minutes north of Scone.

#100HappyDays - Six weeks done already...

Six weeks!

That sounds longer than a daily count somehow...

I'm learning a lot of new things about myself, and remembering things I hadn't thought of for years, I'm looking for things to laugh at, and I'm laughing easier...

The Happiest 5km On The Planet...

When I first heard of the Color Run I didn't know anything about it - except that you start off white, and end up looking like a bag of 100's & 1000's - which to me, looked like the most amazing fun ever!

I was new to the whole Fun Run thing, and blow me down if this one didn't actually look like fun.  So I decided that come hell or high water, I was going to do a Color Run, no matter where I had to go to achieve that goal.

#100HappyDays - Day 36 was interesting...

The purpose of this challenge was made evident today, when the morning got off to a shaky start, and after my nail appointment, went downhill on rollerskates.

#100HappyDays - I'm loving this challenge...

I'm so glad that this challenge came up in my Facebook newsfeed all those weeks ago.

I really think that it's changing how I approach my day, I'm finding I'm a little bit excited to find my 'happy' for the day, and look forward to finding it.

Apart from the fact that I have a really crappy memory and forget to post my pic sometimes, I'm enjoying noticing all the things, big and small, that are giving me joy.

#100HappyDays - The second seven...

If you haven't figured it out by now, you're about to learn that I am a serial procrastinator.

I put off doing, well, pretty much everything...

Can you be happy for 100 days in a row?...

There is a social media challenge currently doing the rounds and it's gone viral.

It's called 100 Happy Days, and the premise is that each day, for 100 days in a row, you take a photo of something - anything - that has made you happy that day, then post it on social media (FB, Twitter, Instagram etc) with the hashtag  #100happydays.

Crawling out from under my rock...

You may have been wondering where I've been these last few months.

Simply put - nowhere and everywhere.  For a while I was just sort of hiding, and fighting the cloud that descends on me from time to time, but most recently I've been cruising around the Gold Coast in a hire car on my honeymoon!

Where's my workout gear...?

When I set my feet on this path a year ago, one of the things that got me really ridiculously excited was the fact that I could actually buy workout gear that fitted.

Amazingly excellent workout gear - available at BigW

A commitment and some goals...

I looked back to see what my commitment to myself was last year when I started on this whole adventure, and I had a little chuckle to myself when I saw the date I did it - 10th February.

Exactly a year ago today!

I bet you have King Julian (Madagascar) in your head singing the song now don't you?

Shit's getting serious...

A couple of weeks ago I signed up for 12WBT Round 1 2014 making it my FIFTH round!

The year that was...

2013... It was my year.

It was  the year I took control, the year I said to myself  'I will not treat you like this any more... you are worthy.'
