whole30 | two weeks down

Jay and I are doing the Whole30 program. What is Whole30 you might be asking? It’s a revolutionary way to change your life; you’re health, your emotional attachment to food and your relationship to your body and exercise. You can read all about it [here] Basically we are doing away with alcohol, sugar, grains, legumes, […]

tightening the reins

Remember my New Years Resolution? Well it’s now March and I’m finding general life & eating fairly easy with the paleo way, however, I have noticed a few too many paleo treats creeping in and portion sizes creeping up, so I’m reading and listening to podcasts to realign myself. I have also let my regular […]

ready to run | week of health & fitness

For today’s post I thought I’d borrow something from Australian Women’s Health magazine Running Guide from their July 2013 issue. Before I started 12WBT I couldn’t run 500m let alone 5kms. Although I now scale back and forth with the length and frequency of my runs, for some people running is an exercise that comes […]

bootylicious | week of health & fitness

I am loving this set of exercises aimed to tone the butt and core. Performed barefoot with 10 slow reps of each exercise; 3-4 times per week. Perfect to do in your house before anyone gets home (looks a little weird)!!! Wall Bridge Lie on your back with your butt against the wall and arms […]

gotta get up | week of health & fitness

WOW | Workout Of (the) Week

I’ve got this annoying achilles tendon issue that just won’t go away. I’ve been dealing with it on & off for about 4 months and it’s so frustratingly painful.  That really has nothing to do with my WOW post but it’s just front & centre in my mind (and body) at the moment so I […]

weekly fitness roundup | week 1 | 12wbt

You know that feeling of accomplishment you get from sticking to a punishing schedule? Yes?!!! Well that’s what I felt like this past week being back on Michelle Bridges’ 12 Week Body Transformation program. My calorie intake is capped at 1200 per day & I am doing 6 days training per week. Here’s my round […]

fitspiration friday

It’s easy to fall off the good nutrition & exercise wagon.  Most people generally know what to do for good health; eat less, move more. Sounds simple enough right? Well why do we struggle at times? Personally, it’s my love of food that is my downfall. I go hard with my exercise but I.love.food. And […]
