✨ Self-care Sunday ✨
Lately I have been feeling pretty burnt out to be honest. I have started a new job in Aged Care, which I absolutely love! But I’m finding that working on top of my full time nursing studies doesn’t leave me with much time to myself. I’m either always working, studying, doing assignments or napping.
I have been getting sick regularly and it’s clicked that I need to start taking better care of myself.
So today I decided to put my assignment on hold and I went for a bike ride to clear my head, it just makes me feel happy. It’s also great because I use all my brain power and energy focusing on not crashing into anything so I have less time to worry about other stuff that’s on my mind. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What do you guys do for self-care when you’re feeling burnt out?
I just landed yesterday in Singapore after and incredible 6 weeks of traveling around the world. I've been making a conscious effort to connect more with myself, my friends and my surroundings which I realized meant disconnecting temporarily from social media. Though I missed sharing with everyone I forgot how amazing it is to simply BE and not worry about how to capture the moment and instead to just live it. It's been an amazing holiday but there's no feeling like coming home and back to a routine - which means back to Instagram too 🤗 #imback#homesweethome#flowerpower

Dear body, I love you.
That’s my main message to Knox & Nia. No matter where we are in the world, I will always make fitness a priority for me & my family. I am very aware that my kids are always watching me. They observe & learn more by what I do than what I say.
I hope to get my point across to them. To love your body and to treat it in a loving way. And that includes putting in the work. #LoveYourBody#TreatYourselfWithKindness

Yesterday I did a 16km bike ride on Thetis Island. A very tiny island of about 400 people. Although short in distance. It was one of the toughest bike rides I’ve ever done. .
The entire island is hills and hills are not my strength as a one legged cyclist.
On one hill, I started wobbling and teetered to my right side. Unfortunately it all happened so fast and I don’t have the balance to catch myself so I full on fell off my bike. .
On another hill I was working my leg off to get to the top without walking up my bike. I was about 30 meters from the top when a dog owner allowed his dog to run onto the road. The dog cut me off and started barking at me so I had to stop. Once I stop on a hill, I don’t have the momentum to restart and I had to walk my bike the rest of the way.
Next it started pouring and the roads became super slippery. .
Finally I saw this picture and realized that these exercise pants of mine have become really unflattering over the years and I do not look cute in this outfit. .
As tough as the ride was, I had a wonderful day. Im more proud of myself for finishing 16km of hills yesterday than I am the 40km of flat I finished 2 weeks ago. .
I bought the most delicious brownie I’ve ever eaten on this island. I spent the day on a beautiful Island with one of my closest friends. She’s always patient and encouraging and never gets annoyed at my pace. And finally, the fall put a hole in my exercise pants. New ones are in my future now. Whoo hoo. 😊🌻❤️
Well my motivation to work out and eat healthy has been lacking! I haven't really taken progress pictures because I've probably gone backwards. Mentally, I know I'm getting short tempered and it's because I haven't been working out! Ugh!
This morning wasn't a workout but we were staying active. Walked to the park and back. My adventurous, no fear girl is able to ride her balance bike to and from the park and it's made walks more fun!
Here's to a new week, with new opportunities and new challenges!
The truth will set you free!!! This is basic, but I feel it needs reiteration right now. If your body says no — it’s a no. Learning to be truthful in our life starts with being truthful and committed to our bodies needs. Denial is not a successful strategy. What are the things in your life that you know aren’t working for your body? You may be afraid or not know how to change...but all that stuff will open up once you start with the honesty. I love you, I know it’s hard to be honest.

Athletic endeavors often ask for some sort of investment in equipment - shoes for running and cross training, mats in yoga, bikes in cycling, swimwear, and so on. “Use the right tool for the job.” You don’t always need it, but the right tool can ensure optimal results and the best use of your time. Let’s talk grip socks and why they’re required for our @daileymethod barre classes! ✨ Stability: Sticky grip sole prevents slipping on floor, mat, and equipment
✨ Function: Support for your foundation
✨ Performance: Keeping your feet warm helps to redistribute heat around the body. Keeping the body warm during exercise helps prevent injury, enhances muscle and joint range of motion, and may even improve
✨ Health: Creates a hygienic barrier in a shared space
Other notable benefits include mood booster (as in, my outfit on point💯), delaying overdue pedicures, and conversation starter.
Kicking off Week 2 of our 💫 Align & Shine Challenge, here’s a shout-out to this quintessential barre prop that supports our powerful planks and deep, low squats! 🔥 Congratulations to our Week 1 raffle winners who scored themselves a new pair of @tavinoir socks: Michelle C. & Francesca M.!! #doitdailey#strongertogether#livingadaileylife#gripsocks#ishine2019#giveaway#mindbody#strongisbeautiful#alignyourspine#alignyourmind
What’s up beautiful people, my Fit Fam and those new to my page!! First off Happy Monday! I wanted to come on here today to share a little jewel taken from a conversation I had with a good friend of mine @styledbylyne this am! I saw she posted a pic of her fresh ass hair style. It was so fresh I had to comment on it. I hit her with a “I seeee you out here killing the game! HEEEAARRD JUUUU SIS!” Once she received my compliment she then said “I’m back on my shit!” Almost as if she fell off or even QUIT! That made me think for a second, which I responded “you say that like you fell off of QUIT the game. You only experienced a short hiatus and now you’re BACK in the Game.”
•I’ll leave you all with this, as much as I preach consistency and staying in the game, there’s nothing wrong with taking some time away to deal with LIFE. Once you’ve got your head about you then get back in the game. YOU ONLY FALL OFF WHEN YOU QUIT ENTIRELY!!!! •
• For those still rocking, keep at it. For those looking to get back in a rhythm, NOW is the time! Have a great day Folks!
