An Open Letter to Depression

It’s such a dirty word. It feels taboo. When I think about depression and how to tell people I suffer from it, I often think of euphemisms to use instead, because I’m not comfortable with it. If you know me, you’ve probably heard me say things along the lines of: “I’ve been feeling really low…

#NTCTourSyd

At the beginning of May, I attended one of the infamous Nike events – to promote their app Nike Training Club (get it if you haven’t already – you can read my thoughts on it here, here, and here). Nike went touring around the world with their Global Trainers, to put on a day full…

Collywobbles

$(*(#$&%RUIKFJAKGHAF$&*(#$%KSHFKSHFKDFGHK That’s as best as I can describe the past couple weeks. I’m not entirely sure what’s been going on. Why is this blog post titled “Collywobbles?” I’m sure you’ve all got extensive vocabularies, but for those whose have deteriorated as much as mine has post-University, Collywobbles means: intense nervousness or anxiety. But it has a…

The Body Coach – Week 3 & 4

I’ve almost come to the end of Cycle 1 on The Body Coach! I’m quite nervous about ending the cycle – there’s been a lot to get my head around and I’m not sure if I want to shake things up for Cycle 2! And if I’m honest, I’d be lying if I said I…

The Body Coach – Week 2

Week two, done. Done & dusted – probably not. I’ve decided to make four meals and switch them around this week – low carb oatmeal, protein pancakes (high carb, for after HIIT), salmon fishcakes and paprika prawns. My favourite(s) of the four were definitely the oatmeal and the prawns! I made the pancake batter in a…

The Body Coach – Week 1

Food, glorious food. This is what the SSS plan should be really called. Everyone says it but…you’re eating a LOT of food. This week has been an emotional roller coaster – I’m SO BLOATED I fear I look, and I feel like an inflated balloon. I mentioned in the first post that I wanted to get back…

The Body Coach: 90Days SSS Plan

Everyone’s talking about Joe Wicks – the total fittie and founder of the 90 Day Shift, Shape & Sustain nutrition & exercise plan. I didn’t really know who he was but my TIDs did, and when I finally got involved, after I’d picked my jaw off the floor, stopped perving on him and stopped creasing…

Don’t You Remember?

We’ve all heard of the saying “never let anyone dull your sparkle,” right? But what if it’s not one single person, or not a person at all? How do you cope and react if it’s a variety of personal and professional disruptions that are doing the dulling? I’ve found it’s a bit harder to ignore. Hence the radio…

The Whole30

I completed the Whole30! Yay. 30 days of eating nothing but fresh vegetables, high-quality organic meat, fish and seafood, fruit and good fats. Poached eggs & grilled vegetables – homemade cooked breakie No grains. No pseudo grains. No added sugars – even the healthier kind. No wheat, gluten or rye. No alcohol. And I bloody…
