It’s a gloomy, rainy Friday here in Brisbane, but hot and humid nonetheless. A perfect day for studying at the library, right? Wrong. I’ve been trying to haul myself through an excruciatingly boring unit and just needed a change of scenery. Eyes.Glazing.Overrrrrr…

After 3 glorious hours of irritation and inhaling the stench of some guy’s rancid body odour next to me, I made my way home to find a few packages (eBay baby things) awaiting me. I don’t know about you, but I always get so excited when I receive a package or even a letter in the mail! Bad mood gone.
This also arrived today
The folks over at Shape Magazine Australia noticed one of my recent blog post where I complained about missing my ‘North American Shape Magazine’. Apparently there is an Australian version which I didn’t know about, so they sent me one to check out- amazing! I’ve flipped though a few pages and it looks just as great as my trusty go-to US version. I am looking forward to toting this to the gym during my cardio sessions over the next couple of days. Thanks, guys!
Side note: I definitely need to write down a few pointers from Pink, who had a baby not even a year ago; nice abs!
Dinner for one tonight…
I was VERY close to going for the token “eating alone cereal option”, but thought that the ‘little guy’ probably requires something healthier. So instead of a 10 second meal prep, I opted for this 3 minute one (+ 15 minutes oven time). Definitely worth it.

Well, my Friday night is actually going to consist of doing a few more hours of school work. Laaaame, I know. However, due to our lack of internet last week, I am severely behind schedule for some assignments due next week.
As promised, here is Day 2 & 4 of The Total Body Shape Up workout that I introduced yesterday! It includes a 40-minute cardio interval workout (machine of choice) followed by core/abdominal exercises, as detailed below.
Hope you are all having/had a fantastic Friday!
