Guilty conscience

Hello my dears! It’s confession time, I have a  really guilty conscience for being such a bad blogger since I got here. I think I’m still trying to find a routine and figure out when is best to blog but at the same time I’ve really struggled to find things to write about or it hasn’t flowed out of me as it usually does. I feel like I’m just rambling about the same things all the time! I’m sorry guys, I’m trying so hard but if it’s something I’ve learnt is that you can’t force something out. I think it would be so boring for you guys to read. Yet here I am trying to write another post, in this case a post about the fact that I’m struggling to write a post haha. I just wanted to give you an explanation as to why the content hasn’t been great and why it’s been irregular. I’m hoping I’ll get into the groove again soon!

I think I need to sit down and have a little brainstorm of what I actually want to be writing about here! It’s tough when I feel like there are so many things I should be doing like sorting out farm work and figuring out my future here in Australia. The blog is very important to me but I need prioritise these things and they are quite time consuming. Then I of course want to make the most of the fact that I’m in Melbourne and experience as much as I can while I’m here.

In other news, I had a fun meeting yesterday in Balaclava and spent the afternoon browsing about the area and then walked over to St Kilda for lunch. I went to an incredible place and will be writing about it very soon. So far Melbourne has been delivering the goods when it comes to food. It’s been aaaamaaazing. I’m in brunch heaven all the time! I feel like this is all I talk about but it’s just too good not to.

In the evening I was in the gym with my friends. The workout was one I should’ve really enjoyed. Heavy deadlifts and planks. Then the cardio piece was one person rowing 270m and the other person does as many power cleans as possible and then switch, a 12 minute ARMAP. Your score was the amount of power cleans you managed to do by the time cap.

I wasn’t really feeling the workout at all. I don’t why! So odd considering I love all those movements but I just felt completely out of it and kind of disappointed. Nothing felt good really when I look back haha. I don’t know why but I know we all have workouts where we don’t feel at our best. I’m wondering if it’s still the weights messing things up and I’m not feeling like I know what I’m lifting most of the time. In order to take a bit more control over the situation I’ve since over a week back become better at writing down what weights I’ve been lifting to get a better idea of what I should put on. It’s okay to feel rubbish at times but I know you also need to come up with a solution to fix it so I’ve taken control of the situation guys!

Anyway, it’s a new day and time for another workout this morning! Hopefully it’ll feel a bit better today.

Sorry I don’t think this was the most uplifting post I’ve written but it’s life and I’m not always my happiest self!

Speak soon my dears, M xxx

    1. Amazing! Yes I think it’s so important to find what works for you because that’s how you’ll keep on going in the long run 😊 We’re not all going to like the same style of training. Outdoor workouts are great!
