18.4 THE STRUGGLE WAS REAL 😫 || Definitely not my favourite open workout. Having to figure out where Barry would end up during hand release push ups so I didn’t squish him I settled with a little gap between some jerk blocks. Which made the push ups a little more challenging and they ended in some sort of semi-controlled shaking quiver down & up . Plus with the added Barry weight there was lots of rest and me screaming ‘I’m so heavvyyyy’ 😂😂😂. But we managed to get 1 lot of bear crawls out before time cap 🐻 💃🏽 #18point4 #crossfitopen at CrossFit 4000
HAPPY 6th BEAGLE BIRTHDAY ALFIE DOGGIE 🐶 || Happiest of birthdays to this ball of squishy. My main man & lord commander of the possum watch . We love your crazy little personality, how your sprint around the back yard like a lunatic for no reason, your endless unconditional love and your ability to steal and eat 3 chicken frames and a kilo of organic mince from the kitchen bench in one sitting ... whilst we were disappointed at the time it was hard not to be impressed. Soon to be big brother of Barry, we love you to bits 😘🐶🎂 #beagle at Brisbane, Queensland, Australia
FROG POSE 🐸 || Some Monday afternoon Yin Yoga with my bff. This little fury loves a bit of #yinyoga at Brisbane, Queensland, Australia
ANOTHER WEEK, ANOTHER OPEN 🏋🏼♀️ || 18.3 was my favourite one yet! Whilst we scaled Baz and I made it through 2 rounds under time cap. I wonder what this week has in store for us. Hopefully no hand release push ups 😳 #29weekspregnant #29weeks #crossfit Again, all movements I am doing are under the guidance of my obstetrician and my heart rate is always kept under his imposed limits for me 😊 at CrossFit 4000
SUNDAY BREAKFASTS 😋 || Usually I stick to the same old breakfast, this morning I felt I needed a little extra something, something. Gluten free, sugar free cacao pancakes w/ vanilla bean organic yoghurt. So damn delicious 🤤 #Sunday #funday at Brisbane, Queensland, Australia
When women support each other, incredible things happen. I am so fortunate to be surrounded by a community of amazing, inspiring and strong women 👯♀️ Happy international women’s day #iwd #lilpup 📸 @alexinalaura at Brisbane, Queensland, Australia
18.2 RX || Having to carry Barry around every day has definitely made my legs stronger. Was so happy to be able to do at least one #crossfitopen workout Rx. Whilst we had to take our time keeping my heart rate where it needs to be and burpees were a little more challenging- trying to avoid turning our unborn son into what would resemble a squishy faced cat. Baz and I made it through to the cleans with a little under a minute to spare 🏋🏼♀️💃🏽 #18point2 #28weekspregnant at CrossFit 4000
WORKING OUT WITH MY MATE BARRY 🏋🏼♀️ || Today we did some back squats to a box 5 x 10, then a little conditioner:
21 hang cluster (20kg)
50 double unders - 15 - 50 - 9 - 50
All approved movements by my obstetrician 👌🏽 #28weekspregnant at CrossFit 4000
WISH WEDNESDAY 🐳🤰🏼|| It used to be workout Wednesday but currently I just wish we were back in the Cook Islands - floating serenely and basking in the sunshine - could also do with a bucket of raspberries, mango and a watermelon #imawhale #28weekspregnant at Cook Islands
18.1 FEELS || This is how I spent much of the #crossfitopen standing around making sure my heart rate didn’t go above my obstetrician imposes max heart rate or spending a minute deep breathing when it started to reach this training max. As a naturally competitive person the instinct to do your best is so strong. I found it really difficult to stand there waiting. But we did it. Barry’s first open and we didn’t do too badly in the scaled division considering all the down time 😂 #27weekspregnant #27weeks at CrossFit 4000
BEAGLE HUG SATURDAY 🐶 🐶 || My favourite day of the week, followed closely by beagle hug Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday & Friday. Love my little furies 😍😍💓💓 #yoga at Brisbane, Queensland, Australia
HAPPY VALENTINES DAY 💓 || To my favourite human @maxim.holcroft 😘😘😘 at Deux Belettes Country Guesthouse
HYDRATE 💦 || When it feels like 50 million degrees outside and I all I want is to immerse my entire body in an ice bath keeping well hydrated is key to keeping your energy levels up and reducing fatigue. Bring on winter 🙌🏽 at Brisbane, Queensland, Australia
WHAT DID THE UNICORN TELL THE CARROT? U-NO-CORN 🦄 || Charli found that joke absolutely hysterical. Loved it almost as much as she loves her new uni-beagle jumper 😂 at Brisbane, Queensland, Australia
SAVING GRACE 🙏🏼 || Whilst not the most attractive photo these two little miracles saved me at 1am this morning. I woke up with horrific leg cramps in both directions, no matter what I tried to stretch as I squirmed around in bed the opposite would cramp. Thankfully I had these sitting in the cupboard. Smothered my legs with the cream and had a quick dose of the powder and within 10mins everything was back to normal 🙌🏽🙌🏽 at Brisbane, Queensland, Australia
SCARS ARE COOL || I forget this not so little scar is there most of the time, it’s not until I see a picture of it that it makes me feel a little physically ill at everything that I went through to earn it. There has not been one year that I haven't dreaded the anniversary of this accident. Watching the first few days of the year slowly tick over, inching closer and closer to Jan 14. The emotions always mixed- gratitude, frustration, relief, anger. Then there was always fear of the years to come, the unknown long term consequences and looming fear future surgery as each years ticks by. Then come the memories- the pain, the confusion, the seemingly long rehab process- realistically 1 year is a minor blip- the stupidity of being embarrassed wearing a back brace for 6 months. The struggle trying to return to full function and accepting the limitations I had both mentally and physically.
This year- 5 years later- that date came and went without me realizing. Perhaps with Barry’s arrival 3 months away I had more important things to think about. However, despite missing the date, the impending birth of our first child has also brought with it another pile of worries about my spine- the extreme fear I have of being admitted to hospital, the fear of now willingly putting myself in pain again, the fear of causing more damage to my already fragile spine.
Being caught up in those constant worries of the ‘what if’s’ become too overwhelming. So despite them dancing in the back of my mind I have chosen to embrace the unknown, to stop treading in fear and continue to do the things that keep me and my back happy- whilst at the same time looking after the little Barry bump. It has meant scaling and modifying my training but also keeping my focus on the importance of movement for my body and mind. Setting goals that are achievement not performance based- eg. My 2km swim. Having something to work toward and focus on has made those whisperings in the back of my mind a little quieter.
We can all achieve anything that we put our minds to. Fear is the only limiting factor. You can choose to run from it or accept it for what it is, and just get on with it.
WHEN YOUR FRIEND HAS ABS, AND YOU LOOK LIKE YOU ATE TOO MANY KEBABS 🌯|| First ocean swim in quite some time for both of us, Barry’s first ever at #noosasummerswim . Actually surprised ourselves made the 2km without drowning -despite Barry’s extra resistance in the water 🐳 - and managed to both get 3rd in our age categories- which was a shock 😂😂 #whereisourprizemoney #ormedals #24weekspregnant at Noosa Main Beach
BYE BYE PARADISE 👋🏽🏝|| It has been such a blissful few days enjoying our last overseas holiday before Barry arrives. Next holiday, this little guy will be tagging along in the outside world. Big thank you to @littlepolynesian for an amazing stay, such an beautiful little hotel and gorgeous, hospitable staff. We loved every second of it😍 at Little Polynesian Resort
