Sunset at Long Jetty Wharf {Sundays in my City}

February 5, 2017

It’s been almost four months since I moved up to the Central Coast of New South Wales. I still haven’t explored all that much but I am hoping joining in every week for Sundays in my city will give me further incentive to explore this place. About a 10-minute drive from where I live, is Long Jetty Wharf. It’s named this because it three long jetties that span out over Tuggerah Lakes. There is a lovely path for bicycles and walkers…

Ramblings #FridayReflections

February 3, 2017

I’d planned to write a different post — one about a book I like. Somehow though, my mind seems to have hit a roadblock. No, it’s certainly not writer’s block as I’ve been writing a lot this week. It’s just an uninspired feeling when trying to write that particular post. I wonder whether that happens to other people. I wonder if they have an idea, a goal, and even the material to write.

Flourish Inside Out The Month That Was

January 2017: A hope-filled month

February 1, 2017

Wasn’t it just yesterday we were welcoming 2017? Making plans for the year, setting goals, stuffing up on goals…and just like that, it’s a brand new month. In January, I successfully took a photo each day as part of my Flourish Inside Out challenge. I must admit, I’m already noticing how observant I’ve become daily as I try to look for something to capture. Something that will instil hope in some way. I’ve read four books in January and reviewed…

12WBT Healthy Living Weight Watching

Time for a round of #12WBT February 2017

12wbt february 2017

Back in 2012, I signed up to Michelle Bridges’ 12WBT program for the very first time. I was newly single, unhappy with my body and needed something to motivate me. Back then, I stuck to the diet and most of the exercise. I lost about 6 kilos on the program and 4 more afterwards on my own. It was more than a body transformation for me. It was a life transformation. Fast-forward 5 years later, I’ve put back some of…
