Are you with me in 2017?

img_5677Ok- how many of you are using this week between Christmas and New Year to set new goals for 2017? Perhaps you’ve fallen off the gains train by skipping some training sessions lately or eaten yourself silly and decided to wait until the New Year to get into routine? We are all guilty of this, but it is not necessarily a bad plan. The thing that concerns me most with this, is that so many people set such massive and at times, unrealistic goals for the new year. Goals or challenges that without serious discipline and motivation, end up becoming a one-week change and then it’s back to the previous years mindset and routine. You can relate? Relax, you’re not alone. No one gets everything 100% right 100% of the time. Now I’m not saying that giving up on your resolution is A-OK, I’m just making the point that I may be able to help you. We can smash our 2017 goals together and keep each other accountable!

Current Body Stats- December 2016.

fullsizerenderOn Saturday morning I went and had a complimentary wellness and health screening, thanks to my husbands workplace. I was a little apprehensive about getting it done as for the past month or so I have been a little “relaxed” with my eating and training plans. Don’t get me wrong, I’m still training hard and eating well- but I am not being too strict in regards to hitting my macros 100% of the time nor am I setting any new records in the gym. I haven’t been too obsessive with food timing or holding back on non-tracked snacks or social events, as tis the season right?

Staying on Track while Travelling.

img_3438So the most popular question that I got asked before I left home was in regards to my eating and training whilst I am travelling. For those of you who know me personally, you know that these two things are a priority in my life and I consistently  plan them into my social plans/ regular routines  so that I can stick to my nutrition plan and training guideline as much as possible. Because fitness and food is a lifestyle for me. I am not training for a particular event nor do I have a finish  date in which I can “cheat”, “give up”, “let loose” etc. So for me, not a lot changes when I travel. But for those who struggle to stick to routine, I have decided to post some of my best tips and tricks to staying healthy and active, as well as “guilt-free” whilst away from home.

Aspire To Inspire.

3b04c91851c488b9cca250f5c9096fa7-1I have been inspired to add a new segment/tab to my website called “ASPIRE TO INSPIRE”. The inspiration came from someone who can best be described as not only a positive role model and huge inspiration in my life, but also a newly acclaimed mentor and friend. He approached me knowing that this website, which reaches hundreds of people everyday, would allow him to share his story. This amazing man, who has such a positive influence on so many people’s lives, has been battling mental illness and depression for a number of years and with his story hopes to inspire others to speak up, reach out and begin their journey of self discovery and self-worth.

The Aspire To Inspire tab will be updated on a monthly basis, with stories about people who will inspire you on your own journey in life, whether it be mental health, physical health or someone who simply aspires to inspire others… I want to share their story with you! If you know of someone who has a story to share or has reached a significant milestone or you would like to nominate a story yourself, please do not hesitate to contact me HERE!
