No one covers single motherdom when it comes to getting back on track

By no means am I calling myself a single mum; I have a loving husband who does everything for me and his almost five month old daughter, and who works extremely hard for us to have everything we need and want. But working away in a town 1186 kilometres from Perth a few weeks at […]

Ermagherd…need to unflab the arse!

Almost eight weeks postpartum and I’ve decided it’s about time to do something about this baby weight I’ve gained. I’ve had a few people tell me to wait, enjoy the food and don’t put pressure on myself, but summer is just around the corner and I want to feel that confidence again so I can […]

Sick of the scare mongering

To recap briefly so this post makes a bit of sense, I have Factor V Leiden, a blood disorder which simply means my blood is thicker than the average Joe’s so I’m susceptible to clotting. You can check out more info in one of the above tabs. When I found out I was pregnant on […]

A book of inspirations by Aussie Chris Pavey

Australians like to be challenged and author Chris Pavey is no exception. Running Against Time is a piece of work that many may easily relate to as Pavey begins the tale by revealing his unhappiness with weight gain and moving overseas for a few years.

Rescuing myself from a life of death – 17 kgs GONE

2012 was the year of change for me and today, on January 17 2013 I celebrate one of the biggest achievements of mine in the last five years…a 17 kgs weight loss. Yes, 17 kgs of lard, fat, lazy arse flab that I can say good bye to permanently. All it took was one word […]

Moments of the Year

HIGHLIGHT OF THE YEAR Probably my highlight of the year was meeting New Zealand actor Michael Hurst […]

The importance of a great running shoe

A boring headline, I know…but it sums up the message I’m trying to get across. And if there’s one thing I’ve learned in my first year of running, it’s the importance of a good running shoe. For a few years earlier, when I was trying to run and failed miserably (resulting in the stoppage of […]

First triathlon? Pfft…smash it!

The lead up to my first triathlon at the weekend wasn’t incredibly intense – in fact, I just took it in my stride and continued on my normal fitness regime. Perhaps there were one or two extra cycles and a transition training session one Saturday morning, but that’s about it. I had done a 300-metre […]

It’s not easy, peasy, lemon squeezey

Three weeks ago I caught an amazing online documentary titled Hungry for Change and as I sat glued to it, stuck to the exposed shocking secrets of the diet, weight loss and food industries and deceptive strategies designed to keep people coming back for more, I made a conscious decision to be more careful about the […]

“Are you crazy?! Who DOES that?!”

Earlier this month, I came home to an exceedingly wonderful surprise; as I pushed the button to open my garage door, there in my parking spot was a brand new, jet black Trek hybrid road bike – courtesy of my loving husband. As I played briefly with my toy, squealing with delight and flicking the […]
