My Week in Pictures

Currently reading: topics on¬†clean eating, cleaning, baby development, Melbourne’s history, council news, volunteering, beauty (sulphate¬†and paraben free products), parenting

Currently eating: way too much sugar than I should

Need to work on: budgeting, decluttering, updating the blog design, getting more toned especially the butt and belly, a couple of dance projects, organising more date nights, weaning, baby-proofing the house now that commando-type crawling has begun!, using my calendar, cooking at home (been eating out too much lately)

Food, friends, family and lots of walking is how I spent the last few days of April/early May. Try playing tourist some time and experience Melbourne in a different way.¬†We have such a beautiful city. ¬†One thing I have found though is that “prammimg” it around the CBD means a constant battle of trying to avoid the clouds of smoke that hang at every entrance and exit. I feel so bad for poor little bubba and try to steer his pram a different direction any time I can. I have also found that quite a few places and shops do not have ramp access…hmphh! The food and coffee definitely make up for it though so for now Melbourne I forgive you, but you seriously need to do something about being more pram/baby-friendly.

On another note being 6 months post par tum I need to really get back to the gym so I can continue to eat ice-cream every night! More posts up on that later. Perhaps a fitness challenge is a coming ? I miss the days when we were training for Tough Mudder.

What was your favorite thing about your week?
