First Attempt: Apple Pie

For quite some time I’ve been wanting to start baking and learning how to make delicious sweet treats to bring to events. Over the past few months I finally decided to dive in and try my hand at baking a range of goodies. I began by following simple muffin recipes and have been slowly experimenting

Geek To Gladiator: October

October is the best month of the year simply because I get to celebrate my birthday. This of course means dessert and a few cheat meals throughout the month. I’ve definitely improved in both healthy eating habits and exercise in spite of my birthday celebrations, especially towards the end of the month. Even a wedding

Photo Challenge: September Through My Lens

Taking photos everyday is harder than I thought, especially on days I worked 10 hours. Even though I definitely didn’t manage to take an appropriate shot every day of my challenge, I tried to make up for it on days I had more time. I also didn’t post many photos on my Instagram, but now

Geek To Gladiator: August

A fitness challenge wouldn’t be complete with some speed humps and with flu season at its peak, I had to take a break after a week. Since I work in hospitality, this meant my step count was minimal and I practically put myself on house arrest because I didn’t want to infect all my fellow

Photo Challenge: September

A new month and a new season; what better time to pick up a hobby you haven’t touched in weeks?

Your social ranking would be defined by your knowledge of a franchise or the size of your collection. These days it seems Fortnite and Ooshies reign supreme in the Australian ecosystem while my past was dotted with a

Geek To Gladiator: Reset

Here I am, 3 months from my previous update and life has definitely got in the way of my plans. Of course, the idea of a lifestyle change was that I’d be able to retain my fitness and health regardless of the curve-balls of life, but my discipline fell through quicker than I expected. With

Geek To Gladiator: April

High hopes for April turned into a cruisey month filled with less exercise and more treats than anticipated. After the first half of April didn’t go too well, I let myself have a break. And you know what happened? Not much, really. I didn’t gain 10 kilos, I haven’t lost all my cardio endurance, and

Geek To Gladiator: February

First of all, I managed to take almost no photos throughout February so I’ll be summing up my month with GIFs rather than #foodporn pics. Now that I’ve gone through my little disclaimer, I can get to the nitty-gritty. February was the first month of my challenge and, as some things go, it was equal

Geek To Gladiator: The Beginning

Here I go again. It seems I have a knack for writing about my new year’s resolutions a full month after the initial celebrations. Luckily I always manage to wrap my head around the craziness of everything just in time for the Lunar New Year. Maybe my body is just attuned that way? Last year
