Hey everyone! I didn't get a chance to do my usual #5BulletFriday post yesterday, so instead, here's #6BulletSaturday to make up for it!
Here are 6 things I'd like to share with you this week:
Last weekend saw the close of the F45 Challenge. 8 weeks of daily training and a strict meal plan came to an end, and I'm both happy and sad about it. I smashed the goals I set for myself at the beginning and lost a total of 10.5kg and 7.4% body fat. I've never been so fit in my life, and both my energy and sleep has really improved. It wasn't just a transformation of body either, but also of mind. It's really helped my mental health - from waking up every morning feeling anxious to now jumping out of bed and hitting the gym, it's contributed so much to clearing my head. I've formed lots of new habits in my eating and training, and I look forward to sticking to these changes going forward. Not only that, but today I found out that out of over 50 people that took part in the challenge I came third, and I got to take home the bronze kettlebell award. To say I'm chuffed is an understatement! Big thank you to all the team at F45 Townsend Street for the support and motivation. Here's to the next challenge!

Do you use Spotify? Then I'd recommend checking out Spotify Wrapped, a website that analyses your Spotify usage over the year to determine the artists you listen to most and how much time you've spent listening to music, among many other things. This year I listened to 31,911 minutes of music via Spotify, with Tom Misch, John Mayer and Childish Gambino being my most played artists... no surprise there!

Too crazy to be true, I recently watched American documentary 'Three Identical Strangers'. I don't want to give too much away, so here's the official synopsis: New York, 1980: three complete strangers accidentally discover that they are identical triplets, separated at birth. The 19-year-olds' joyous reunion catapults them to international fame, but it also unlocks an extraordinary and disturbing secret that goes beyond their own lives - and could transform our understanding of human nature forever. Watch the trailer below, then check out the movie. Well worth it!
Last week at Creative Mornings I met multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Rob de Boer, who you could describe as a cross between Matt Corby and John Mayer (musically) with the look of a '70s Dogtown skater. I hope he's happy with that description! 😂 Anyway, he just released his first track "Little Big Brother" on Spotify yesterday and I absolutely love it. Have a listen below, and if you're anywhere near Dublin City tonight, get down to his FREE gig in Wigwam.Click here to listen on Spotify, the embedded player isn't working today!
