The open house went really well! I move into my new home next month. I'm anxious to get all settled in. I've been spending time trying to figure out where I want to put everything and looking at some different style ideas. I will probably stick with the light and bright style I have now. 😊I hope to have some new pieces coming out soon. This one is in the shop now! Still crazy busy. Love and light 🙏🏼
Oooph! Tough pose 😰 kinda goes with my week, when I got on my mat today I took yesterday's frustrations out on it. I had the pleasure of joining @urbanenergydxb for a mums boxing class yesterday, I've boxed for years, love pad work, love sparing, I've trained with some amazing coaches one of them being my brother @battleconquergym When I found out I was pregnant I stopped the sport, so imagine my excitement when I saw the Urban Energy classes, a chance to pick up with a long lost passion while Benedict had fun at @kidshquae on the indoor climbing frame, ball pit and trampolines... 😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑 sounds like a perfect scenario! What actually happened was the minute Toddler B realised I wasn't at his beck and call he had the worst tantrum melt down ever. I ended up boxing with a screaming toddler strapped to my thigh, every cloud has a silver lining though, when it came to squats and lunges I upped the game by squatting an extra 13.5kilo strapped around my waist. What is more I'll be going again on Thursday. Wish me luck folks 🙈😂👶🏻🙏🏼
Queen of Queens Fluorite and Amethyst pendant. Made with a magnificent fluorite tower and adorned with Amethyst and Moonstone accents. Crown made of Swarovski crystals. The color purple has been associated with royalty, power, and wealth for centuries. In fact, Queen Elizabeth forbad anyone except close members of the royal family to wear it. 💜💜💜This pendant screams royalty!

First run in my new shoes felt pretty good 😄 breathing with a blocked nose was tough but the hill intervals definitely did the job 🏃 now it's time to foam roll and cry about the fact there isn't a Game of Thrones episode to watch this week 😐
Working to achieve a solid overhead position 🏋 strictly strength training with no conditioning today, because I'm running later 👀 supposedly 🏃
15 Unbroken HSPU will be a big PR if I can hit it! If you want to get better at something, practice it 🤓 sounds simple but it's easy to get caught up in the thousands of training methods 🌞
I received my beautiful card holder from @essarai_ceramics today! So happy to finally have it 💙 I will post a picture of my mug soon too 👌🏼 The featured Rainbow Titanium pendant is available in the shop now. I'm going to be spending the rest of my day getting ready for my second open house tomorrow. Wish me luck! 🤞🏽
I supposed to be running today but MAN FLU has stopped me in my tracks 🤦🏻♂️ part of me just wants to go anyway but I know I'll regret it later! 🙄
Plan is to look at photos 🌞 of how much my endurance has improved over the past few months and realise that missing a run isn't going to make me a bad runner 🏃
Today's workout lasted way too long.. 🙄 after doing a full back session with @buildandbakefitness I decided to put my own little spin on things 🚣
PARTNER WORKOUT 👯
10 min AMRAP:
Burpees over a 24" box
2 minutes rest
3000m Row FT (300m intervals)
First time ever trying clean pulls today 🏋 hopefully getting the technique dialled in at 100kg will help me to get a PR in the near future 😅
Also decided to test my versatility on the week of my 🏃 half marathon 👀 combining strength, power, speed, and endurance to try and be as fit as I can be 😎
Test 1 will be the ability to still deadlift 150kg 💪

Celebrated with some muscle ups whilst @buildandbakefitness was being a creep and trying to look up my shorts..
FINALLY went for a run, apparently I need to run if I'm training for a half marathon 🤔 who knew?
Ran to a 10k PB but I'm not going to lie and say it felt good 😅 a seemingly never ending hill around 4km in almost killed me off 👀

This was about as far from a Dubai beach run as I could ask for 😄 I wish I looked at the numbers so that I made it an even 10k 😑 but I felt like I had a lot left in the tank to try a longer run next time 🏃
Forever trying out ways to make a fool of myself in the gym 🤡
Weighted walks for a serious glute burner 🔥 hinge your hips slightly and just take small steps, transferring the weight from one leg to another 😅
Trying different methods to improve my endurance and having a hug at the same time, that's what you call efficiency 😂 told myself I'd hold on for 5 minutes but:
A. I got bored 😴
B. My headphones fell out 🎧
C. It was harder than I thought it would be.. 👀
