Monday Motivation (on a Tuesday)… & Weight Lost Update

Monday Motivation (on a Tuesday)… & Weight Lost Update

Let's first address the obvious... this post was patently supposed to go up yesterday.

Pre & Post Workout Essentials

Way back in January, I started on a new fitness and nutrition regime, with two goals in mind. The first was to lose body fat percentage (no surprises there!) and the second, to be able to do pull-ups like the boys.

Sleep – The Final Frontier

Sleep – The Final Frontier

So I'm working on all areas of my health and fitness but sleep is the one area that eludes me. Not that I can't sleep, mind. I just don't go to bed early enough. There's always just so much to do and then before I know it, it's midnight already...where did the last two hours go? So in a bid to…

Health & Fitness Week: Feel The Burn with Tabata #FitBod

AKA Four Minutes of Hell! In the post a couple of days ago about my 5 favourite fitness apps, I mentioned a little thing called Tabata. Clued up gym bunnies will already be fully aware of this fitness phenomenon, but if this is all new to you, then let me enlighten you. Not just cardio (although this will leave you…
Health & Fitness Week: Top 5 Superfoods

Health & Fitness Week: Top 5 Superfoods

Sometimes, a complete diet overhaul is just too high a mountain to even contemplate climbing. And when it all feels too complicated with the calorie counting, the weighing, the food combining, blah blah blah,  I get to thinking  "forget it, I just won't bother, it all seems like too much trouble and I'll never be able to keep it up".…
