Hey hey! Another reminder to join my #Dietbet! It’s coming up quick. Next week I’ll start posting in the app daily to get y’all ready to go! I provide full workouts, meal plans, motivation, tips and tricks! Just click the link in my bio to sign up!

So how exactly does @dietbet work? You bet $30 that you can lose at least 4% of your body weight in 4 weeks. If you win, you get to split the pot with the other winners. No scam, no gimmicks. Just weight loss and winning money! If you lose, you still learned a lot about yourself, probably made a little progress and got to be a part of a supportive fitness group for a month. You can sign up by clicking the link in my bio!

More on the technical side of things - the bet starts on June 4 and ends July 1. You send in your initial weight by taking pictures of yourself on the scale and of your scale readout with the code word that you get in the app. Your weight can be private or public. So if you want, ONLY YOU and a REF will see your weight. I personally chose public because all of y'all already know my journey, but I most girls want to keep it to themselves. Then at the end, you take another set of pictures verifying your final weight. Simple as that!

I will of course be with you every step of the way to motivate, answer questions and give tips! Feel free to ask any questions! Message anytime! Sign up by clicking the link in my bio!

I try to make it as fun and involved as I can to help y’all out! I get fitness beginners, brides, moms, people just working on those last pounds, etc. joining and working hard in these bets! I post tips, challenges, tricks, motivation and guide you the whole way! All you have to do is sign up, weigh in and lose 4% of your weight in a month!

I am proud to announce that I am officially a certified yoga teacher! It’s crazy to think that just a couple months back this was just a far fetched dream! I learned so much at my training, and I can’t wait put it into practice and share it with others! Thank you to @asiapacificyoga and @ellen.yoga.ahipara for teaching and hosting such an awesome group! I cannot wait til our paths cross again! Miss all of you wonderful yogis!

If you are in the Wellington Area in the near future, I’ll be hosting so yoga events I hope! Check back here for announcements:)

SO HAPPY to be lifting weights again! The thing about being on a training with 12 yogis is that you are surrounded by some plank holding, steady balancing, hand standing, deep lunging, champions. I thought I was strong until @ellen.yoga.ahipara and @ronjasmountainlife put me through my paces in their classes. I’ve got some new goals back in the gym and a lot of it is just getting back to basics.💪🏼
I’d like to work on some beginner lifts just working on depth, form, and technique. Functional fitness is what it’s all about for me for a while! •

Happy Earth Day, friends! Today is a special day for me this year because I’ve gone through a lot of changes and learned a lot in just the last year. Being on this yoga training in such a wonderful country has especially opened my eyes. This year I’m going to make some changes, and I wanted to share them with y’all. They aren’t huge, but graduated lifestyle changes are what works for me. Going from zero to sixty is just too hard to make some real lifelong habit changes. So here are some of the changes I’m going to make to start with. I’d LOVE to hear what small steps y’all started with to leave a smaller footprint.

Ask for no straw with my drink.
Bring bags when grocery shopping.
Don’t bag my produce.
Shop at farmers’ markets.
Carry around a reusable water bottle and coffee mug.
Walking places more often.
Switching to bar soaps instead of plastic pump soaps bottles.

Also giant shoutout to @raeubertochter.ronja for opening a dialogue with me about all of this! She’s got an amazing website and Instagram about living and traveling minimally and sustainably. So follow her if you’d like more ideas on how to do your part! Also thank you for letting me borrow your wonderful @jadeyogamats Having a sustainable yoga mat is my next step!

I taught my first yoga class! It was nerve-racking and exciting! Just a week ago I was thinking I wouldn’t be able to do this. Last week I was the student, and now I’m the teacher! It’s such an awesome feeling. I still have a week left, and I know I’ll continue growing and learning as a student and teacher for the rest of my life, but I’m happy to get my first class over with and to have had the support of my awesome co-teachers @raeubertochter.ronja and Nicole. Thanks to all the others that showed up to support us and to everyone on here for being more encouraging! I can’t wait to show y’all what I’ve learned!

So as y’all know, I did something out of my comfort zone and signed up for a yoga teacher training. I’ve only been here one week, and I’ve learned so much! When I posted on my stories about the training, I had several girls ask for more info. For the girls still wondering, here’s what I know:
I signed up for my certification through Yoga Alliance. It’s international, so I can practice here and back in Texas.
I am getting the 200-hour Registered Yoga Teacher certification.
I consider myself a TOTAL beginner, and I’m staying afloat. Don’t think that you have to be a seasoned yogi to decide you want to share it with others.
I just searched for trainings on Google. I mostly picked this one because it was close, but they have them all over the world for all types of prices.
Mine is about 3 immersive weeks, but they can be spread out over weekends or be around a month or so.

I’ve learned so much here and met some of the most amazing people! Feel free to ask any questions, and I’ll answer as best as I can! I teach in my first class tomorrow with @raeubertochter.ronja and Nicole! I am so excited and nervous! Wish us luck and send great vibes! If you are some kind of fitness instructor, give any tips that you have for a first class!

Yoga mat from Amazon.

Big announcement! We got an apartment in Wellington! Finding somewhere to live for the year was a lot more competitive than we expected! We’d been living in an Air BnB while we were looking and missed out on a couple of our top picks because we are American. Most places wanted long term leases so picking a couple that has to leave when their Visas end just doesn’t make sense. We finally got a place that was willing to give us an 11 month lease. It wasn’t furnished like we were hoping so we’ve been hitting up second hand stores and their version of Walmart to get some necessities. So far we’ve got a bed, kitchen supplies, and a couch to be delivered. It has one bedroom, one bath, kitchen, and living/dining. I love the deck, big windows and views most of all! We are across the street from a bus stop and Wilton’s Bush. So we’ve been learning public transport and taking hikes in the bush every morning. We are also about 3 minutes from Zealandia and the Botanical Gardens. So we’ll be outdoors a lot! Next on our list is looking for jobs and a car! Wish us luck! I’ll continue to update. Sorry the posts are so few and far between. I’ll get back to normal posting when we get settled!
