Walk to Kundalini yoga tonight for a beautiful soul fulfilling session. Followed by some delicious Thai food. Lovely to stride down the waterfront after dark in amongst the different energy. #strava #yoga #kundalini #cyclist #VooDooEndurance #Deschuteswindowanddoor #wattieink #RocktheW #knightcomposites #superfastwheels #girocycling #zealiosskincare #teamzealios #project32 #blazinsaddles #reyesfrandsenfoundation #FieldWorkNutrition #rubbersoulbicycles #xterrawetsuits #FindYourMagic at Cairns, Queensland, Australia

When I lost me, I found me. When we get lost, we can sometimes lose the essence of ourselves. I lost my way in grief, in drinking and eating excessively. I had to claw my way back out. It was in the struggle that I was reintroduced to my true essence, the truth that makes me. When we are lost, we learn so much about ourselves, we are surprised at our own tenacity, our spiritedness to not give in. In the process of being lost, I found a whole new world that I didn’t know existed: Deep connections with strangers, cycling, running, reestablishing my love of taking photos and writing. I found a deeper respect for myself where I didn’t want to abuse it with food or alcohol anymore, I needed to feel my feelings without them being blurred. Feeling helps me grow and transform. Forget the destination, enjoy the journey, relish in right now. Your purpose is much clearer when you keep it simple. Blessings 🙏🏼xx at Port Douglas, Queensland, Australia

Hiii Super Sunday! Went for a walk/jog this morning with less pain than usual. Toe socks are awesome to seperate the toes along with my new orthotics to reduce symptoms of the Morton’s Neuroma. Soaking up a sunny Sunday & keeping life right in the moment. X have a beautiful day. #strava #run #cyclist #blooms #mortonsneuroma #footinjury #VooDooEndurance #Deschuteswindowanddoor #wattieink #RocktheW #knightcomposites #superfastwheels #girocycling #zealiosskincare #teamzealios #project32 #blazinsaddles #reyesfrandsenfoundation #FieldWorkNutrition #rubbersoulbicycles #xterrawetsuits #FindYourMagic at Cairns, Queensland, Australia

My spirit feels restored after an early morning bike ride to start off my weekend. Breathing in cool tropical air, drinking in the sunrise, and turning over the pedals through the mountainous rainforest. Its my biggest ride since the January cycling injury in the Australian Alps after 200+km. It’s great to accomplish more km’s again. I am not feeling so dark, I always find comfort knowing that nothing stays the same. Emotions float in, until they shrink away. Time and self-compassion is like a healing balm.

Hey, they say that the more you talk about your vulnerabilities - the less power it holds. The more that healing can spread through writing and talking, by carefully laying it all open on the table. The more I don’t talk or write - the more it hurts me, penetrates me and my suffering continues. I’ve recently been diagnosed with premenstrual dysphoric disorder. I’ve also battled depression for many years. The new diagnosis labels me, but it isn’t who I want to be, nor who I AM, it just explains a lot of crap. It’s a bit of relief, perhaps, that no I’m not insane, when NOTHING is okay. It makes me isolate, moody, suicidal, anxious, very down, and I get bad headaches.. it’s everything I’m not. It’s everything I don’t want to be, but it is. We live in a culture where we showcase our best selves, we wear a mask and we never let our well-fashioned guard down that shows our truth, our fears, our authentic self. Am I weak? I don’t think so. I believe by talking about it, it only makes me stronger. How do I get through? It’s hard, like any mental or physical illness. I wade through it, I try and be nice to myself, I pause, I exercise, I rest, I write. I’ll talk more on vulnerability soon, maybe. And this is not a post seeking pity or response, please .. it’s to write something new, something REAL from an honest person, who suffers sometimes.. someone who drinks in life other times, who smiles at the most simplest gifts, a person who strives for more - usually. I’m grateful for those people who have randomly come in to my life and impacted my world, who were able to share their truth. Kudos to you! You inspire the hell out of me. You know who you are.. #cyclist #cycling #vulnerability #blooms #givekudos #pmdd

Adventures in Newcastle come to a close with an awesome sunset that pulsed rays over old steel yards and sleeping industry. I managed 5km walk/run today, but my foot is in protest. The Morton’s neuroma between my third and fourth toe needs more time to settle...More patience, more tolerance. Maybe more intervention. I am learning in the most difficult way by running maybe prematurely. I am learning how my all or nothing extreme attitude really doesn’t work in my favour sometimes, but in other ways I’ve conquered huge barriers because of it with losing weight and ceasing smoking etc as examples. The all or nothing is who I am, and unless it breaks me completely I don’t give up that easily. When I took this photo, I was talking to a lady whom I started to walk next to. When I asked how her day was, she provided a negative response. I could see she was really focused on herself and her issues. I pointed toward the sunset with a gaping mouth in awe, ‘but look at that sunset!’ We both stopped to look for a moment, and I think we both smiled in silent gratitude. The simple things.. #strava #blooms #cyclist #run #sunset #VooDooEndurance #Deschuteswindowanddoor #wattieink #RocktheW #knightcomposites #superfastwheels #girocycling #zealiosskincare #teamzealios #project32 #blazinsaddles #reyesfrandsenfoundation #FieldWorkNutrition #rubbersoulbicycles #xterrawetsuits #FindYourMagic at Horse Shoe Beach

Early morning walk & run along a cold Newcastle waterfront. It’s awesome to be exploring a different place this week! My foot seems to like the new orthotics. The neuroma pain in my R foot is still there but I’m not hobbling anymore. I certainly couldn’t manage to run/walk 7km as I did today. It’s been over a year now of not being able to run on it. The magpies crowed to awaken a new morning, I said good morning to other rugged-up runners who smiled and made my day. I even managed to find a great juice bar opening early! Beet, celery, carrot, ginger and apple. Feeling blessed and grateful to be alive. #strava #cyclist #walk #run #live #love #VooDooEndurance #Deschuteswindowanddoor #wattieink #RocktheW #knightcomposites #superfastwheels #girocycling #zealiosskincare #teamzealios #project32 #blazinsaddles #reyesfrandsenfoundation #FieldWorkNutrition #rubbersoulbicycles #xterrawetsuits #FindYourMagic at Newcastle, New South Wales

A magic soul filling start to the weekend! Walking around the headland of Port Douglas, giving my thanks to a breath taking sunset as yachts silently skimmed through the coral sea. My foot pain seems reduced with the new orthotics so far. As night fell, we sat on a rocky crag.. the coral sea lapped at our feet as we gazed toward a sky illuminated with stars. Wow!! 😮 Today we managed an 80km ride to Palm Cove. My knee was behaving itself, it’s certainly been a long rehab since the 200km Alps ride in January. Gratitude today, and feeling better than yesterday. I even had a breath through with my writing early this morning 🙏🏼 Blessings x #strava #cycling #blooms #VooDooEndurance #Deschuteswindowanddoor #wattieink #RocktheW #knightcomposites #superfastwheels #girocycling #zealiosskincare #teamzealios #project32 #blazinsaddles #reyesfrandsenfoundation #FieldWorkNutrition #rubbersoulbicycles #xterrawetsuits #FindYourMagic at Port Douglas

Turning the pedals, dancing in the surf, breathing in a beautiful sunrise and stumbling on an old unused bushwalking path that stretches above the Pacific Ocean. This is living. An amazing GC weekend 🙏🏼. #strava #cyclist #cycling #blooms #goldcoast #VooDooEndurance #Deschuteswindowanddoor #wattieink #RocktheW #knightcomposites #superfastwheels #girocycling #zealiosskincare #teamzealios #project32 #blazinsaddles #reyesfrandsenfoundation #FieldWorkNutrition #rubbersoulbicycles #xterrawetsuits #FindYourMagic at Gold Coast, Queensland

My first ever mountain bike adventure!. 50km of paddocks, wild forest and surburbia. The bike slid out a few times but no real crashes. As Dave says, it’s such an organic experience. And it really was. #strava #cycling #mtb #blooms #VooDooEndurance #Deschuteswindowanddoor #wattieink #RocktheW #knightcomposites #superfastwheels #girocycling #zealiosskincare #teamzealios #project32 #blazinsaddles #reyesfrandsenfoundation #FieldWorkNutrition #rubbersoulbicycles #xterrawetsuits #FindYourMagic at Barron

Look at these curious cows. I almost got to pat them!! Everything and everyone deserves love and kindness. This was our 80km ride last weekend in magic Tully 😍 #strava #cycling #blooms #loves #blogging #VooDooEndurance #Deschuteswindowanddoor #wattieink #RocktheW #knightcomposites #superfastwheels #girocycling #zealiosskincare #teamzealios #project32 #blazinsaddles #reyesfrandsenfoundation #FieldWorkNutrition #rubbersoulbicycles #xterrawetsuits #FindYourMagic at Tully, Queensland

A-MAZING day cycling up toward Tully Gorge through banana plantations, past crystal clear mountainous creeks, curious cows I wanted to cuddle! Haha!! Didn’t make it to the gorge as we didn’t really work out the distance. Did 80km cycle really focusing on trying to use different muscles and it was hardddd work. Thanks for an awesome Sunday @dbwall69 x #strava #cyclist #cycling #blogging #blooms #VooDooEndurance #Deschuteswindowanddoor #wattieink #RocktheW #knightcomposites #superfastwheels #girocycling #zealiosskincare #teamzealios #project32 #blazinsaddles #reyesfrandsenfoundation #FieldWorkNutrition #rubbersoulbicycles #xterrawetsuits #FindYourMagic at Tully Gorge National Park

I really love Mission Beach, sleeping little beachside village of around 4,000 souls. Stayed at #missionreefresort , almost died after jumping in that frigid pool yesterday! This is winter in paradise. Today we are going to cycle and explore Tully through sugar cane and banana plantations. Tully has a crazy assed rainfall season of average 4000 mills p /y . It’s a green oasis!! More pics to come.
