Monday 30 May 2016 – The project begins

1 June is the start date for my 30 days project, where I’ll be exploring a range of new ideas and habits for 30 days to see what works for me and what doesn’t. As I explained in my last post, the challenges will be a mix of simple...

#30daychallenges – an introduction

I’ve been doing a lot of reading (for me) this year, listening to podcasts and making notes like there’s no tomorrow, with no clear idea of what I’m going to do with everything that I’ve been learning. I have beautifully organised Evernote notebooks (really) where I’m keeping a lot...

Walk in her shoes – a reflection on the week

So another Walk In Her Shoes week is over; my third time participating in this event for CARE Australia. I love the idea behind the challenge: to walk 100km (or the distance of your choice) to raise funds for CARE’s work in countries where women and girls miss out...

Book 1/24 – 18 Minutes

I don’t set New Year’s resolutions, but sometimes I spend some time in January thinking about what I want to achieve in the coming year and what I want to focus on. One of the things I decided I want to do this year was to learn more. That...

CARE Walk in her shoes challenge: Day 4

My feet hurt! The blisters I thought had settled down from a few weeks ago are rubbing again and I don’t like it. I might try some different shoes for the next day or so. I’m now more than half way through the challenge and have met my step...

Walk in her shoes challenge: Day 3

It’s Day 3 of CARE Australia’s Walk In Her Shoes Challenge. I managed another 6 km walk in under an hour this morning. I have no idea of what a decent pace is, but it takes a fair bit of effort for me to maintain a pace of just...

Week in review 9-15 March/Walk in her shoes update

This was the last week of my training for CARE Australia’s Walk In Her Shoes Challenge. Tomorrow (16 March) is the start of the challenge, and I’ll be aiming to do 25,000 steps a day every day for the next week. The training hasn’t been part of the challenge....
