Vlog 28: 3 Overlooked ways to lose weight  

          Nutrition and fitness are no doubt the biggest part of the equation to weight loss success, but often we think that it should be as simple as following a generic 1300 calorie meal plan and burning more calories than you consume through exercise and then voila….we have our perfect bod.

What We All Need To Achieve Happiness ♥  

So as I sit here writing this Blog I am currently in a beautiful spot on a Sunday surrounded by a lot of people, families, couples….and there is a relaxed feel of happiness and rest. I don’t know exactly what all these people’s lives are like around me (but I do like to play the game where I can guess and sense what their world is about :P ), but in today’s world I realise […]

Vlog 26: 3 Things I Have Changed My Mind About  

  Taking bodyfat measurements… It seems to be just the norm now that when we see a fitness professional to help us in a fitness and health journey, our body fat measurements are taken regularly to see how we are doing. I definitely got caught in this trap, being taught this while doing my trainer qualification, it is just standard in health and fitness studies that this was how we gauged progress of clients.

So here are 2 randomly picked ones for you! – Every thought I think is shaping my future – This is incredibly true. Negative thoughts will get you nowhere, […]


Why I needed to stop competing… (Reason 1)  

Reason 1: You can lose your period from intense dieting One of the reasons that I needed to stop doing shows is because of how it was affecting my body. Getting to a low bodyfat will (not always), but normally make your period stop. Generally it will just go back to normal after you start to put back on bodyfat and eat a decent variety of good foods, cut back on the intense exercise, slip […]


Vlog 24: Three Important Questions….  

What is Golden Milk? Is it OK to take selfies? Is it important to have a bubble butt? Asking the real important questions around here… :P Golden Milk….This is one thing that is on the internet that isn’t rubbish (see previous Vlog re. mush on the internet ), and is a beverage with the main ingredient being Turmeric. Turmeric has crazy cool benefits with it being an antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and has anti-cancer properties. Naaice. You […]
