UY's bikini body challenge

26 September 2016
Here's what made my whole year: 

I WON THE BIKINI BODY CHALLENGE!


I took my 2nd UY challenge of the year - the Bikini Body Challenge. A 6-week program for UY members. Mine kicked off on the 11th of July to the 20th of August. With every batch of the BBC, there's only < 20 girls at one time, so the number is small but the focus is high and intense. 
Unlike the 9in6, you're meant to do 5 group classes, 5 days a week; focusing on cardio and building your cardiovascular health. The BBC includes 5 days of weight training and a strict diet of carb cycling with the usual high protein and lots of veggies. With a focus on strengthening and toning your muscle groups. 

You pay a little fee of $700+ and you get 6 weeks worth of training program, weekly updates with Andrea who's our mentor for the challenge, access to the BBC facebook group and at the last week of the challenge, you get a little fun photo shoot with the rest of the girls in your group. 

After your shoot is done and dusted - Andrea and the rest of UY coaches will choose a winner and prize them with $500 cash prize, for the best transformation mentally and physically. 

When I found out about winning the BBC, it was on Eid al-Adha and I was finishing my essay. I was OVER THE MOON, jumping up and down. Smiling from ear to ear.

With Peter the photographer extraordinaire who is also a UY member!!! He is so nice and funny - made the shoot lots of fun for everyone.

I spent the better half of September with Faiz's parents who flew down from KK for 2 weeks and Ika joined us from Mildura for about a week. Walked around Melbourne, did a little sightseeing, went to the zoo.. And when I'm not doing any of these things, I was reading and chasing after essay deadlines.  I also ordered the iPhone 7+ in jet black in early September and I can't wait for it to arrive in 10 days!!! 

 I won't bore you with words - plenty of photos to go through. Enjoy :)

Its official: Kylie has obliterated me, to my very core. 

After going back and forth, telling myself a mantra of I don't need its,
"you don't need it, its just pretty packaging" - next thing you know I'm clicking "purchase". 

I don't know what's worse, the fact that I succumbed or that I bought these from an eBay reseller for 3x extra. Noob.


swimming to the surface

I'm sooooooo sorry I've neglected this little haven for so long. August and the first 2 weeks of September were filled with countless happy happenings. I'll break it down into a few posts but here's the first half. 

Chotto with Kelly and Sooj

A joint in Fitzroy serving Japanese breakfast. Didn't take photos of the food but I loved the aesthetics inside and the waitresses were so reminiscent of Japan, polite and soft-spoken.

Kim's 22nd at Cumulus Inc

Had lunch at Cumulus with the gal pals. Haven't seen everyone that much this year since we're all such busy bees. Always nice seeing everyone.

Got positively stuffed with free-flow sourdough bread, foie gras on brioche, lamb, beef short ribs, barley salad and 4 desserts no less. BIG APPETITE FOR BIG GIRLS.

I spend so much time with everyone here, they're starting to feel like a family. They can transform the most mundane, tedious and monotonous task into something happy and radiant. Everyday I feel thankful for being surrounded by driven and contented people, who make me laugh and fill me with the most colourful feelings.
