    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…

    Love yo self!

    How many of us look at exercise as a form of punishment? As a means of “losing weight”, “toning up”, being sweaty messes, a chore, an appointment we want to cancel? As a personal trainer, I see many people day in, day out whose goals are to “lose weight” … Others will say “I want to get rid of this” as they latch on to their stomach area … Some pinch the back of their arms and tell me “I hate this flappy bit” … etc. It breaks my heart a little bit to hear others talk about themselves in this way. (To be honest, I am still guilty of…

    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…

    how to move from “INTERESTED” to “COMMITTED”

    Occasionally, I run into a podcast episode that I get obsessed with and SOMETHING just clicks and resonates with me at the time. The last time this happened was with Angie Lee’s “Rich B*tch” podcast where I shared with you guys the highlights.  You can find the blog here.   This morning it happened again! I was listening to one of my fave podcasts on my way to work and it’s the “Earn Your Happy” podcast with Lori Harder.  The topic for the day was knowing the difference between being INTERESTED in doing something towards your goals and being COMMITTED to your goals.  This is so relatable for me right…
