If you’re thinking of bringing a new pet into your home there are a few things you need to think about before heading out to pick one up. Choosing the right pet for you is fun, but takes time, planning and lots of research. You need to consider very carefully... Continue reading

I have 23 Months until I plan to travel to Europe on my trip of a lifetime. As of next year I am due long service leave so I plan to use it and spend 2 months travelling all over Europe in 2018. I don't think I could have a... Continue reading

Even with the sun shining and so many fun things going on I've been having a tough time of things this month. I've been feeling grumpy and agitated, tired and unmotivated. I thought I must be fighting off a bug as these are often symptoms I get before I catch... Continue reading

Today was my first day back at the gym since December of last year. I'm taking time to put myself and what I really want first. I'm making conscious decisions to spend less money, pay bills on time (saving ahead of time), getting to the gym, eating healthy, avoiding trouble... Continue reading

While I feel like I'm starting from scratch with my body (if there was a level '0' in fitness, that would be me) I don't actually have to start from scratch when it comes to goals and fitness plans. There are already hundreds of people out there who have done... Continue reading

I love reading. More often than not I read fiction but in the last few years I've read some biographies too. I have to admit I haven't read many classics. I stumbled over the Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge a while back and knew it was something I wanted to tackle.... Continue reading

Yesterday my crazy friends and I joined the colorRun. This year's theme was 'shine' which we later found out meant we would be covered from head to toe in glitter. Here are the before and after photos from the day! We didn't break any running records but it was a... Continue reading

I love starting a new year, it feels like you just shed your negativity from the last year and you're given a new start. It's all in my head really but it helps me feel renewed and ready to find the new me in 2016. To transform myself into the... Continue reading

The colorRun is next weekend and I haven't been training. Not only have I not been training, I only went to gym once last week. Looks like I'll be walking around the course again this year. Maybe I'll jog a little through the colour zones. I've let myself get distracted.... Continue reading

I'm going to walk everywhere. I'll easily reach my 10,000 steps and find myself getting fitter and healthier. I'll plan my meals and budget the food shopping. We'll always have packed lunches that are healthy and filling. I'll have space to put things away, the whole house will be my... Continue reading

I've always loved food. I couldn't really say where else this all began. I enjoy eating good food and I've never been much of a sporty person (I'm kind of uncoordinated and I'm not at all competitive). When I try and pin point when I'd become overweight it's a struggle... Continue reading

I had my weigh and measure at gym this morning. I haven't lost much weight (about .700 grams in the last 7 weeks) but I have lost centimetres off my stomach and arms which I'm thrilled about. I remember weighing myself on my fitbit scales a week or so ago... Continue reading

Prioritise it. Put your runs and workouts in your calendar and schedule them the way you schedule an important work meeting or family event. Give your training schedule priority. Continue reading

My feet are sooooooo sore! I didn’t know that doing 13,000 steps two days in a row would cause so much pain! I’m so not use to it but I need to change this so I can really hit my targets. I made myself a goal for this week to... Continue reading

Stop with the soft drink and juice. Don’t drink all your calories. Save calories and drink water, various teas (especially Green Tea!) or black coffee. Continue reading

I think I'm actually starting to want to exercise. It would be my dream come true to head out for a run or go to the gym to burn off frustration or anger. Or to help me cope with any emotional overload really. I am still prone to head to... Continue reading

I know this. I know that if I don't plan and prepare I WILL FAIL. And yet I see myself doing it over and over again. I get caught up in the more urgent things and I don't make time to prepare. I feel like every time a write a... Continue reading

So I'm on a role, I get out of bed at 5am, get dressed for gym, pack my lunch, grab my clothes for work and head out the door. I remember I needed petrol so I stop and fill up and it's still only just 5.30am by the time I... Continue reading

Move your body everyday of the week and remember to think movement not just exercise… be active everyday. This is where my fitbit really helps to remind me to get off my butt and move. Knowing I have a goal to reach those 10,000 steps every day is an easy... Continue reading

Since Sunday the 4th of October I have not had a single piece of bread. Not. One. Piece. Bread has always been my fall-back food. If I'm starving and I need to eat something before I pass out, I'll have some toast or a sandwich. When I'm running late I'll... Continue reading

So last night I had a bit of a treat issue. I went to the supermarket looking for something to have for dinner and I wound up getting all sorts of 'treats' in my basket. I did buy them and started eating them. Thankfully I kinda saw sense and only... Continue reading
