Starbuck survives nocturnal life.

Sunday 3rd July

Finished my run of nights that morning. Had planned to stay up through the day. 

Decided to lie down while my washing was on...woke up five hours later.


Monday 4th July

Went on a little day trip to Byron Bay. Was wonderful. Perfect weather. Huge pods of dolphins and even saw a whale. Made up a little for the awful few days I'd had at work.

Squat day felt really easy. I love that my squats are finally starting to improve.

Tuesday 5th July

Ashtanga yoga in the morning - really going to miss the early morning classes when I am back to workings days.

Visited my family and played tennis with my dad in the afternoon.

After yoga I went to the commercial gym I joined last week. It is so convenient...though I'd prefer to be at powerlifting gym whenever possible. Didn't feel great, but I got through it.

Trip to hometown to visit my grandmother and a few friends.

Way too much sugar.

Always nice to confirm that I'm still able to do one-handed handstands.



This is the first time I have actually been brave enough to post a squat video anywhere - I've always been so embarrassed about how terrible my squats are. I know I still have a long way to go, but feels great to be making progress. (I'm also a tad in love with my stars and stripes shorts...)

I'm catching up on posts but I'm here. Your workouts are looking great! I'm leagues behind you so there is no comparison, but I just wanted to add that squats are also the hardest lift for me. It's a constantly challenge to improve my squat mobility and form! 


I love that one year update on your injury. Go you! #recovery :)
