Kettlebells, yes I went back for my second class today after a 6 mile warm up run beforehand (because, well I’m a weirdo who likes to make things hard for myself 🙄). I was apprehensive to say the least, seeing as though I couldn’t walk properly until about Wednesday from last weeks class 😂. I went in, mentally prepared for another 50 billion squats, but @strengthofthesilverback thwarted my plan and decided to work on core strength instead and we only did 10billion squats. I though ok this is fine at least I’ll be able to walk tomorrow....then I was allocated the golden yellow ball of torture. Nothing like the little golden snitch from Harry Potter that is easily caught between two fingers. No this is some 18kg beast of a thing. I mean, I was happy with my lovely pink ball from last week, we were ok together doing our thing, the lightest ball in the rainbow row or terror. But no I was moved up two colours and it was really really heavy. Then there were the planks...after lifting this beast ball for 50 billion reps, we then had planks, because well why not add in some other way to induce searing pain on us poor unsuspecting trainees. Anyway it was a great class again and it was fab to see a lot more people there (clearly @oldschool.fitness is very good at marketing and doesn’t mention the pain factor involved in this class 😂). It’s great to be part of such a lovely group there and we do have a good laugh. Really hope my legs are ok tomorrow as I have an 18 miler in the morning 😬.

I made patches! I’m super new to embroidery, I think these are maybe the third time I’ve ever tried? But I’m really pleased with how they’re turning out, and they’re fun and peaceful to do.
🌙
As per always, I try to use scrap or salvaged materials whenever possible! The yellow backing fabric is from @meccaeugene and the embroidery floss is from @snowlinethrift !

Day 10 of #100daysoflongtones — woohoo! Made it to double digits. More f Remington — haven’t wanted to change it up a lot yet because I want to track growth through the week. Definitely feel more in control and this was truly pp because our lease actually says no musical instruments. Oh, hello from my living room too lol. •••

So lately I’ve been pretty frustrated with my “teacher chops” (aka I don’t practice consistently enough) so I decided to do something about it. As you all know I am getting married in February (very exciting!). In an effort combine two things I love a lot (Brianna and band) I’ve decided to do a bit of a “challenge” for myself.

As of Thursday there will be 100 days (woot woot!) until the wedding and I am going to challenge myself to  #100DaysOfLongTones. Don’t worry, this won’t be some highfalutin mumbo-jumbo pedagogical breakdown; Instead, I’m just thinking of it as a peek into what I do that could spark some fun and interesting conversations with my brass playing friends. Also, it forces me to be accountable to myself, and gives me a long-form look into what I’m doing.

Also, long tones are better with friends, so feel free to join in. Share the good word. Do as little or as much as you want. Maybe this will be a cool way to spark ideas and dialogue. Maybe it’ll be a dumb thing I do for 100 days.

If you feel so inclined, post it to your favorite social platform using  #100DaysofLongTones(I’ve checked, it’s not in use). Happy practicing!!  #trumpet  #trumpetlife #trumpeter  #music  #musician  #classical #jazz  #practice  #practicing  #shed #longtones  #gettingbetter  #tryingnewthings #trombone  #baritone  #tuba  #tubaplayer #frenchhorn  #frenchhornplayer #euphonium  #brass  #brassplaying  #bach #conn  #selmer  #yamaha

Thought I'd try out San Choy Bau on the kids tonight since Hubby and I are big fans. We ate with them for extra encouragement. As expected there were mixed reviews. Archie's face pretty much sums up his feelings on the matter, point blank refusing to touch the lettuce and only eating the filling on the basis he was told it was that or nothing for dinner. Lily showed a willingness to give it a go but ended in a preference to no lettuce cup. Poppy examined the lettuce leaf and then refused it but happily ate the filling. #sanchoybau #kidsmeals #familymeal #familydinner #tryingnewthings #trytryagain

Thanks for these words @danlok 
I’ve been working on this my entire life. It feels great to know that I’m finally getting there! I’ve gone through tons of ups and downs but I’m proud to say I’m in a happy, motivated, driven, and in an eager place right now.

Looks like I failed to finish Inktober2018 🙈
That doesn't mean I'll stop practicing drawing!
But this is something I tried some time ago and actually ended up really liking^-^
And maybe you might too...

Fellow photog peeps 📷... have you ever played with smoke bombs before? I’m thinking of using for a shoot but have never messed with them. I figured it’d be difficult to fire and try AND shoot so maybe have an assistant do it. Also is there a brand that’s better than others? Lemme know the scoops😮

My tips are for people who have an interest in a new hobby, to motivate people to challenge themselves to do new things or find a passion in life, to let people know that all of us are relatively close in ability and with commitment and passion anyone can excel. I’m here to remind others it’s important to always challenge yourself, find a passion for things and to continually look forward to living. -

Never miss out on golden hour, especially when you can get a shot like this.

Here’s the finished request of this cute guy for @baileykent_7225 this was so much fun to shade. The angle was kind of tricky, but it was super fun all around. Yesterday I rode in English for the first time in a while, we did some jumping too. Only fell off once so I call that a win, unfortunately didn’t get it on camera. Aurora likes to make absolutely sure that we don’t get anywhere near touching the poles so she likes to jump very high when she goes over 😂😂 let’s just say I wasn’t ready for a jump that took us four feet over the highest part of the jump. :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

So I made a last minute decision to enter a crossfit competition. The Mitchum CrossFit ProForm Summer WODfest PART 2 seemed perfect for a first timer.
Then I had to find a friend who I could bully into teaming up with me, enter Kirsty Rault 😬💪
I have never done one of these and this was a new and interesting experience. 
I must admit the first WOD was so hard because it was quite taxing on the shoulders (also I found the weights pretty heavy) but it also gassed you so badly. What made it worse was the blistering heat😰☀ The second WOD was right up our alley with a 400m run carrying your 15kg slamball and rope climbs. During the workout it just happened that I did the carry/run and Kirsty did the rope climbs, this worked out great for us. 
It was a fun fist try at a crossfit comp and we will definitely be back to try it again. We just missed the podium 😔 but I'm super happy with our performance and proud of you Kirsty🙌. Thank you to the guys and girls from our box CrossFit AROO who came out to support, Cameron Speechly, Pierre Fick, Marius Smith, Jo-Anne Williams. (Elmarie Ek het jou gehoor langs die veld En waardeer jou support baie, En ook al jou tips En advies voor die tyd.Jy En Janice was amazing😘)
Coach Marco Caromba you rock! Because you train/prepare us so well for OCR that we are also able to hold our own in a crossfit competition as well as OCR and trail running. Thank you for kicking my butt into shape and keeping me motivated 💪 #Aroo #crossfitAroo #crossfit #girlsofocr #ocrchickscancrossfit #tryingnewthings #teamwork

Weekend is here! 🙏🏼⁣

But early this morning so I figured why not work on some coaching stuff!⁣
⁣
But is it really work if you love it so much? I’m not thinking so!⁣

If you’ve ever wondered what I do, or what the community is really like - I’m telling all tomorrow! Even if you just want to be a fly on the wall, I’d love to have you! ⁣
