Day 8 of #100happydays I spent this afternoon at beach with my friend Kate, and my young friend, Archie (who we stole from @cathysheargold ). We thoroughly enjoyed being tossed about in the surf whilst getting some much needed Sunshine. Now enjoying an amazing dinner with friends - I hope your Good Friday was as “good” as mine… #iamhilarious #gratitudechangeseverything

Day 7 #100happydays Circuit training, 10km cycled & a few quiet moments dangling my feet in an empty pool on a warm night. Now finishing the evening with a glass of red and some beautiful company #gratitudechangeseverything

Day 5 of #100happydays 1350m in the pool, a beautiful night swim followed by some unexpected positive feedback on a piece of Uni work. 🏊📝😊
What made you smile today? #gratitudechangeseverything

And with those words of wisdom I bring you day 4 of the #100happydays project. Today, a day of reading, rest and coffee. Sometimes fighting for your happy just means appreciating what you have.

Day 3 #100happydays - spending a rainy day winding through the mountains with @cathysheargold & Archie, running in the rain at the playground, drinking coffee in tiny country cafés & refueling the car at a one pump mum & pop convenience store. We stopped here to listen to some bell birds before winding our way back down the mountain towards home. Again… The Sunshine Coast is so damn beautiful ❤️#howtoenjoyaraineyday (at Melaney)

Day 2 #100happydays - I live in a place where it’s still shorts and Tshirt weather even when it’s raining, I have a waterfall, rainforest & national park walking distance from my house, the beach is cycling distance & nearly always inviting, the mountains are a quick drive down the road, I share my university campus with random kangaroos & wildlife, & the coffee can be found in abundance. I pretty much live in one of the prettiest places in the world & that’s something I like to take advantage of regularly - such as watching the sunrise at the beach this morning. It’s ok to be jealous #ilovethesunshinecoast #australiamate

Just a big of an update on the likes for kilometers challenge this week - for those of you who missed it I’m trying to get to 259km in 7 days… Only 122km left in the next two days, so as you can see I’m pretty much on track… #notreallyontrack #terribleideas #stupidcrazycardio #lookslikeillbedoingmoreburpees

Day 1 of the #100happydays challenge - spur of the moment tickets home to Adelaide for Easter. So very keen to hug my family! 😊❤️ (want to play too? see 100happydays.com for into)

So ends day one of #stupidcrazycardio week. The last 2km for the day in the pool for a total of 33 today. A little short of the daily goal of 44 for this week but it felt like 100, so still counts right? #259waystospellbadidea #mybodyhurts #notenoughcoffeeonearthforthis

Amen to that 🙌 here’s to a week of brilliant challenges ahead 👍 This week I’ll be attempting to run, walk, swim, cycle cross-train & laugh my way through 259km along with @cathysheargold @ashm_fit @myfitnessadventure2014 & @hayleyw80 - it’s about 44km a day with a rest day. Open invite to anybody else who wants to play! 😊 #challengeyourlimits

Funny how a slight attitude shift can change your whole day/week/life. I can view spending my day studying as a negative, or I can sit by the beach with a coffee and appreciate just how lucky I am to be living this life. We can view exercise as punishment, or find the fun in movement, remembering what it was like to leap and play as a child. We can resent our jobs, or be thankful for the doors it opens and the people it gifts us with. Life is full of opportunities inviting us to appreciate the beauty in the moments, situations and people that surround us. #happysundayfriends

My study buddy - I was sitting on the lawns at Uni today trying to get some research done & this (not so) little guy was just chilling next to me. Love how comfortable the kangaroos are on campus! Especially the mums with the cute little joeys in their pouch! (at University of the Sunshine Coast)

See previous post for more info - every so often I allow my friends to talk me into really stupid & totally senseless challenges. #likesforkmchallenge or as I like to call it #worstideaeverchallenge is go, starting Monday. There’s still time to jump on board if you want to play. Final numbers are in for the 1like = 1km challenge. Because it was all @cathysheargold @myfitnessadventure2014 & @ashm_fit ‘s idea in the first place I’ll be splitting this four ways. Let’s be honest - 259km each over 7 days is madness enough. People also matching the number because they WANTED TO include @corinnedol @micheymoo & @mojodazzler - you guys are nuts!! DO YOU WANT TO PLAY? Feel free to repost the initial challenge photo & have your friends determine your fate, or try and race with us to 259km this week. 1like = 1km walk.run.ride.row.xtrainer 🏊🚲🏃

Thought of the day. And maybe a challenge for you too.
There was a beautiful post on the @humansofny FB page today (as there often are). It was a woman sitting on a bench speaking about working in the same cafe for 28 years. She said that cafe was a family, and the work she does now is just a job. She also said that “I was happy and I didn’t even know it”. Sometimes chasing our own happiness means slowing down enough to appreciate the beautiful things we already have. #gratitudeproject
