Point & Shoot: Sydney Pilates

I'm very excited to be linking up with Lou's Point & Shoot. I haven't done this forever and what a better weekend?

So Friday just before 5am I left my little farm house and headed to Dubbo to catch a flight to Sydney. I love flying to Sydney because instead of a 6 hour drive, it's a 45 minute flight, time efficient. I headed to Sydney to complete my Pilates course that I had been preparing for for 2 months so lets just say I can add Pilates instructor to my list of qualifications but to be honest I can't wait to start teaching this as I truly believe that it is so important.

So I guess I'll let my pictures say a thousand words.

These images are a combination of iPhone and DSLR.

The photos are all out of whack but I'm using my iPad and the Blogger App so just think of it like Pulp Fiction and try to sort all the images out in chronological order.

I selfied myself. I love Lululemon, it's a fitness brand but I just feel that it is where fitness meets fashion. The clothes are amazing so I checked that out.

Caught a lil sneaky shot of the course, what happens in a Pilates course...

I bought new Glow in the Dark running shoes (kind of love fluro) and had to test them out so I headed out for a 6K run with a beautiful photographic tour walk home.

Finally I was stuck in the airport :( my flight was delayed by nearly 3 hours. From a 7pm flight we boarded around 9.45pm. After a full on weekend, lots of pain from exercises and just pure exhaustion if the plane was delayed again there would've been tears. So I busied myself with some shots around the airport.
I added some final pics of my doing my Pilates. Self-timer is amazing.

I hope you had a great weekend too, what did you get up to?

Can I give you some advice?

Never be afraid to be alone.

A few weeks ago this was me. I wasn't happy in my situation but I was too afraid to be alone. I'm 28 do I really want to start again? Can I be bothered to find somewhere to live? Can I be bothered to move all of my stuff?

Well I couldn't be bothered to tell you the truth and that really is no reason to stay in a situation.

In the end the decision was made for me. I had to start again, I had to find somewhere to live, I had to be bothered to move all of my stuff. And you know what? It wasn't bad at all.
The first 2 days were horrible, a million questions running through my head. I live in a small town, everyone will know.

Two days after that though I felt fine. In fact I felt better than I have in forever. Covered in grief for the past year, I felt good. My last post was written after this incident and that shows you my mood. I thought to myself, 'you know what Kel? After everything that has happened to you in the last year, this really doesn't rate at all.'

So five days later I started telling people, they now knew and no one could believe it but that's ok, they all know now and they have all supported me. One of my friends offered me a place to stay, so I'm now a farm girl, living out of town with an Englishman and an Irishman. Sounds like the start of a joke doesn't it? And you know what? I'm loving life. So once again my advice to you is to never be afraid to be alone, you just never know where it might take you.

I wanted to share a quote I found on Pinterest:

'and maybe a happy ending doesn't include a guy,
maybe it's you,
on your own,
picking up the pieces and starting over,
freeing yourself up for something better in the future,
maybe the happy ending is just moving on.'

So I have freed myself up for something better in the future and my happy ending is just moving on.

I wrote this over a week ago and only now am I ready to publish it because yet again I worry too much about others feelings.

Oh my goodness, no photos!!
