Daily exercise for health

Bicepsmaller

Do you know how much daily exercise for health we are supposed to be doing? How much is too much, where it starts to negatively impact your health?

I was visiting my parents who live two states away and I have a running joke with my father, where I ask – “Dad have you been lifting your weights a little?” He always replies, “I’ll start tomorrow.” He has said this for the last 30 years!

Chocolate Travel Bars

Chocolate Travel BarsI wanted to create something that I could take with me for hiking adventures or even work when I don’t have a fridge handy. These Chocolate Travel Bars are the answer.

While I totally love my normal fudge/chocolate creations, they are strictly fridge to mouth options only, as they melt into a gooey mess within half an hour of being out of the chilly environment.

Not so practical for the lunchbox or if you want to take travel snacks.

Don’t stress about eating

stress about eating

A new friend in my life was quizzing me about what I eat.

We were exchanging recipes and explaining briefly the why, what and hows of our respective eating habits and at one point I said, “I do eat cheese because I like it and it suits my weight loss goals but I am aware of the gumming up effect it sometimes has on me if I eat it too much. As well as the fact that all dairy food is supposed to cause inflammation in your body, much like grains do. But I don’t stress about eating and have it anyway.”

Slim Birdy does the Schkinny Maninny

schkinny maninny

Schkinny Maninny sounds like a dance doesn’t it? Or at the very least a fad product in the weight loss world of which you should normally steer clear.

However I am pleased to report that Schkinny Maninny is none of those things.

When I first heard of it, I was totally skeptical. These are the thoughts that popped in my head…

New year goals

new year goalsHappy New Year Goals!

I’m excited again at the start of a new year, it does it to me every time. Not sure why, maybe it’s the holidays and so you are more relaxed and actually have time to think about your life and make plans. Or maybe it’s time to brush yourself off and start again.

What ever it is, I like it!

To grain or not to grain – that is the Paleo question!

bread

One of the biggest arguments against the Paleo diet that I hear most often is the claim that “if you remove a food group like grains out of your diet, you’ll be missing out on nutrients.”

Funnily enough they never seem to elaborate much more than that, so of course it piqued my curiosity. Is it really true or are they just joshing with us?

Five weight loss mistakes

tapemeasure

I have been reading a few health books lately mostly specifically about grains and weight loss. The interesting thing is that they exactly mirror my beliefs on this subject and reveal at least five weight loss mistakes that people make. My beliefs of course stem from my own experience but also of witnessing the plight of others who keep trying to do the ‘diet and exercise’ advice and fail spectacularly for years, some never succeeding and spending most of their lives miserable. (After dishing out hundreds of dollars on programs that can never work.)

So let’s take a look at what is wrong here…

When news of this ‘Australian first’ wellness offer popped in my inbox, I was a little unsure of what it was about and skeptical as to whether I, or you guys, would be interested.

But then I saw who was involved and my eyes nearly popped out of my head!
