Part diary, part letter to a friend.


Hello, I'm Sandy.

Today's background is a tapas spread at Pinchos in Leederville, WA.

23 May 2018 🥋 Last weekend, I graded for a purple belt. Not sure what the result is yet, but it was good fun. I've been thinking I need to take a more goal-oriented approach with all my exercise endeavours.

I'm certainly enjoying it for my current fitness challenge, and you know what? Despite how embarassed I am to admit I derive some narcissistic gratification from Instagramming about it, it really doesn't matter because I'm feeling healthy and motivated.

Why shouldn't you focus on yourself a little if it can improve your well-being and quality of life? Provided you don't harm anyone or be grossly negligent (or wilfully ignorant), of course. Maybe this self-obsessed, dark side of social media can be harnessed for a positive result.

I guess we'll see.

Here's what I'm doing right now.
