An update on my food, my adventures and my life.

So my latest couple of blog posts have been about the berry saga and providing nutrition through a tube.

But they didn’t give me a chance to talk about myself and what I’ve been up to. So read on if you’re interested.

I recently cut my hair…

(Don’t mind me, just slowly approaching my quarter life crisis)

I’ve gone back to school…

After 13 years of school and then 5.5 years of full time university study I am somehow wanting to fill my brain with more knowledge and assignment deadlines.

I am completing a single online unit with the University of Tasmania where I will be looking at the effectiveness of technology (such as the Lorna Jane running app or my handy-dandy FitBit) on healthy behaviour change.

I feel like it is a topic that needs to be researched. I always wear my FitBit and connect up to my health monitoring apps on a regular basis. But does it actually result in a healthy behaviour? Do we actually achieve our goals with it or is it just a fun way to measure how little we actually get moving throughout the day? … or how much we get moving on a good day!

I guess I’ll be finding out over the course of the semester.

My latest creations in the kitchen are…

Summer means making icypoles! Recently I tried a layered lemon juice and coconut water one. Very refreshing!

I finally got around to baking a ginger slice, just like the ones I saw in cafe's and bakeries around New Zealand last month.
