Our 2021 ” Top 3″ Favourites.

Royal National Park with Women's Fitness Adventures

So here we are again, at the start of a brand new year.

I know I have said this before, but if we have learned ONLY one thing over the past 2 years, it’s that nothing is certain and we can’t bank on tomorrow turning out as planned.

Which is why we need to make the most of NOW and be purposeful and intentional in our habits and lives.

Below I will share with you my 2021 “TOP 3” Women’s Fitness Adventures topics across a variety of categories.

But before I do, let me share with you my personal journey for 2021. With 2020 being a super tough year, with the deep impact of changes around travel, adventures and in person events slowing us down, to my father passing away and of course, the dreaded “C” word dominating everything I knew I had to make 2021 DIFFERENT.

So I did. I focused on what I could control and I am all the better for it. Here’s a few highlights.

  • Focusing on sleep. I am an early riser (4.30-5am each day) so that meant turning my day upside down a little so that I could get to bed earlier. It made all the difference getting those “deep sleep” hours in before midnight.
  • I focused on what I ate. Yes, I generally eat well but I did pull myself up and take a good look at my snacking and the quality of my food. And I did this consistently over 12 months, resulting in a more toned and slightly leaner me.
  • I set and showed up for my own personal fitness goals – remember our theory “consistency over time” = results. So I got stronger at the gym, ran faster than previous years and could carry my full pack (20 +kg) over any terrain in any weather conditions whilst remaining injury free.
  • And perhaps the biggest of all – I consistently & intentionally set an “end of day” work hour so that I could get balance in my day and complete online yoga classes with regularity.

Here I am at the beginning of 2022, a stronger version of the me that entered 2021. What I am most proud of is that the time passed anyway, I used that time wisely and I am NOT sitting here with the same story from last year.

At Women’s Fitness Adventures we had so many successes and achievements. My top 3 across all categories are below. I do hope you enjoy them.

Our Top Three Adventures – Left to Right

We did manage quite a few multi day adventures – timing it perfectly between border closures. That’s what made them all the more special.

  • Outback Queensland Fitness Adventure April 2021 – coming again in August 2022. You don’t want to miss this one.
  • Overland Track Hike Tasmania – Winter 2021. This was a once off adventure that challenged us all.
  • Great Ocean Road Hiking Adventure – May 2021. Coming again in March and May 2022. Our date of departure in May 2022 will mark 8 years to the day since Women’s Fitness Adventures began. It will be pretty special.
