Health Planner

My gift to you... Your Daily Health Planner One thing that really changed my life for the better and got me really focussed on making positive changes was when I started to plan.  I was used to planning things like activities and work stuff but I had never considered planning my life in terms [...]

My Happy 100

Last year, I changed my life. A lot. With a list. Another new year arrived, and yet another set of New Year Resolutions. Feeling uninspired and unmotivated and virtually ready to fail again I decided to do things differently. I had been feeling for a while, that life was just so busy. Running a [...]

How I went from a self destructive bulimic to a marathon runner

I DID IT!!!  I actually freaking did it!  I ran 42km last Saturday for the first time in my entire  life!  My legs ran me all that distance, all the way!  I still cannot believe I actually did it.  I remember when I was a little girl, watching a marathon thinking OMG how could people [...]

Who Cares About Self Care?

Why is it that we find taking care of ourselves so challenging ? Why is it that we take care of everyone in our lives happily, attending to their every need, yet when it comes to us, we simply freeze? It's too indulgent? There is not enough time? I don't have enough money? I don’t [...]

The Girl At The Back

Strange title I know, but for years I idolised people who went to fitness classes in branded (very) tight fitting lycra and bounced around with confidence at the front able to keep up with the instructor. I stood at the back, yes, at the very back in clothes that were baggy, showed no skin and [...]

This is not a diet. This is my life. – Why I would NEVER diet ever again.

As a young girl I was aware that I was a little “heavy”. Not anything horrendous, but just “bigger boned” than a few of my friends.   In my teenage years I played around with “diets” and by my late teens I developed Bulimia Nervosa. It came on gradually, starting with some extreme food deprivation. Then [...]

Why I am sharing my personal battles with my Mental Health.

  I have just about completed my book. It took me nearly 6 months, working with my incredible ghost writer, Bronwyn Bay. Last year, on my personal page, I felt compelled to share my battle with bulimia after seeing a video one of my daughters friends, on the subject of eating disorders. I remember sitting [...]

Exercise – The only Happy Pill I need now

I have had my fair share of depression throughout my life. I have suffered  from post natal depression,  3 times, suffered bulimia for a number of years throughout my late teens and into my 20s and even 30s. I KNOW what it is like to have a low self -esteem and no confidence. I KNOW [...]
