Have you heard those sayings? You are what you eat. If you think you can you will. If you think you can’t you won’t. It’s all true. Mindset is everything. I just said to my Body Combat class this morning, our last class on December 31st to finish off 2018.... “believe and be anything you can be and want to be. Believe you can’t and you won’t. Lets start 2019 believing we can be strong and we will be.” So true. Don’t be a victim to your life or even worse, somebody else’s. Wh
I write this sitting watching Carols In The Domain as I do every Christmas and then in a day or twos time The Lord Mayors Christmas Carols. I love Christmas. Rephrase that actually. I love the spirit of Christmas. I love the memories associated with Christmas. I have so many memories of Christmas, even presents I received 30 or more years ago. I remember the days with my family. I remember the smell of having a freshly cut Christmas Tree every single year when I was little...
I love White Christmas. I love the white chocolate version even. I’m not sure if it’s the actual slice or the memories it brings. Isn’t it lovely how you can be taken back in time by eating, smelling or hearing something for many years previously and be frozen in that moment of reminiscing. I love it. This is pretty awesome if you ask me. The Grapefruit and Orange Essential Oils completely compliment the flavour and make it just perfect. If you don’t have Young Living Essenti
Fat. Funny how that word can make people feel uncomfortable. That word used to be my enemy. Now? I eat more fat in my day than anything else! Can you find me in these photos? These were all taken around when I was 18-19 back in 1997-1998. I weighed around 32-36kg in these photos, and yes I had anorexia. Anorexia Nervosa is a mental illness. But, unlike other mental illnesses it is also so totally self consuming, addictive and becomes attention seeking and ultimately becomes y
Do you love fudge? I do. Like crazily love fudge. I used to love the crumbly sugary fudge my Mum always made with sugar and butter and cocoa (I think). Then I went through a stage of loving the more soft and chewy style fudges so decided I was going to duplicate them without the processed and heavily refined ingredients. It is SO easy! Providing you like peanuts, almonds, cashews, sesame seeds, and well anything that makes some sort of buttery paste, then these are for you. A
This is my Mum. Mum is one of the most positive people you’ll ever meet. She had a very challenging childhood but chose to surround herself with friends and all the right people and she came out the other side feeling thankful. I always think of Mum when I’m in a rut and wonder how she’d behave. I wonder how she’d feel or work to change her thoughts. It is so important to be aware of your thoughts and ultimately actions. I’m guilty as hell for being angry about something and
Holy moly how is it the 8th of December already?! Honestly, how did this happen? If you’re anything like me you can feel Quite overwhelmed at this time of year. Did you know you can choose to be overwhelmed or not? Since having kids Christmas has got a whole lost busier but has a whole lot more meaning.... so that’s ok you have your ring hanging out? No! No it’s not! Take a step back and breathe. Since also having kids (especially after number 2) I decided I was going to chil
Did you know that maybe not all Essential Oils are safe for human consumption? I thought they were. I was told that mine were. It wasn't until I went to my very first Young Living Essential Oil Class that I found out that the oils I was using weren't. Young Living smelt different for starters. Then I found out that they had 35 Culinary Essential Oils compliant with Australian and New Zealand Food Standards (FSANZ). So I decided to make a few phone calls.... I called FSANZ and
