    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…

    Perspective

    “The quality of your life is directly related to the state of your mind.”   Something I read this morning in a Wellness magazine struck with me.  I had a situation over the weekend where I was about to beat myself up with negative talk because I was eating more than I normally would on a week day.  Sounds so petty, right? For a change, I caught myself just before the tirade of self-debilitating thoughts.  For some strange reason, in that moment, i thought to myself… “What if you DIDN’T beat yourself up today?  What if you spoke nicer to yourself?  What if you allowed yourself to enjoy those treats…

    3 Simple Tips to Help you Achieve Your Goals

      🎉 With 2018 just around the corner, it’s no surprise that the most popular practices of late are goal-setting & new year resolutions.   While I certainly don’t believe that you need to wait until a new year to set goals and make plans, I do understand the energy behind the idea of “fresh starts and new beginnings” as the year draws to a close. I admit that I personally THRIVE off this whole vibe and being the #organizationnerd that I am, I’ve already redecorated my office, purchased new planners and whiteboards and organized all my pens, markers & highlighters 😅 It’s like I’ve geared up for a stationery battle and I…

    my four favourite ways to destress and practice self-care

      I’ve always been a fan of self-care and self-love.  it’s definitely not something that comes easy to me (or a lot of people for that matter) but ever since I have learned to take care of myself more, I have noticed a big difference in every aspect of my life.  without getting too deep into it, I think self-care and self-love is SO unbelievably important because first and foremost, YOU are the most important thing there is and YOU should be taking care of yourself so that you can function at your highest and most abundant self and from there, everything else will flourish, including your relationships, your health,…
