    Emotional eating

    This blog will be about my most recent experience with emotional eating – particularly BOREDOM eating.   Emotional eating is something I still struggle with from time to time.  As we all do, whether we realise it or not.  This past weekend, my hubby was working both Saturday and Sunday, for 12 hours straight.  I took this opportunity to have some proper “me” time at home, but what I didn’t take into consideration was the fact that during the week, I already work from home, do housework and oftentimes train from home as well.  So literally spending the weekend at home ultimately meant boredom set in.  I hadn’t noticed it…

    Body image

    BODY IMAGE – is something that changes for me every year (even months, to be honest). I’ve been almost overweight for my height (nearly 60kg) & I’ve also been down to 46kg. I’ve gone from competing nationally for CrossFit, to hating any sort of sport, to having injuries, to not exercising at all and everything in between. I’d binge, purge, limit my eating, go on diets, exercise at midnight. I’d eat healthy, train hard, then eat too much again. Through all those years, I felt like I was never satisfied with my body, no matter what I was putting it through. I don’t know if hitting the big 3-0 has…

    Degenerative Disc Disease

      Why HELLOOOOO third week of January! Aren’t you just flying by! A week or so ago, I wrote a post on my Facebook page regarding my lower back issues (see image below).  If you read my blog a couple of posts back, you would know that one of my biggest goals this year is to finally start healing myself (as holistically as possible) and finally do more research about my condition but most of all, be PROACTIVE in healing.  I wanted to document and share my experience on my blog, in case someone out there finds it helpful. The few things I have been focusing a lot on this…

    Gym & Office Transformation Vlog

    IT’S COMPLETE! As some of you guys know, I have decided to fully commit to working full-time from home this year and in doing so, have embarked on a project to create a garage gym and home office for myself and my awesome clients.  I decided to film and “Vlog” the whole thing just because I think it would be cool to have something to look back on in 10 years when I have my dream gym set-up & remember where I started 😊 Nick & I spent a few weeks over the Christmas/New Years break getting everything up and running.  I couldn’t be more grateful for you Nick Craigie,…

    my top 8 health foods I use EVERYDAY.

      Today, I thought I would share with you guys my top 8 health foods that I use in my diet every. single. day.   These foods are my ABSOLUTE must-have every day because when I don’t consume them, when I SKIP even just a couple of days… I can feel the difference within my body and mind. These products are NOT sponsored, I genuinely love them and use them in my daily routine.  My diet is NOT perfect BUT I do try and make an effort to consume a wide range of micronutrients so that I can feel the best I can possibly feel.  SO, without further ado, let’s…

      Brisbane for 3 days >> back home for a few days >> Canada for 23 days >> back home for 3 days >> Sunshine Coast for 3 days ✔️ PHEW!
