REALISTIC Goals – February 2014

As I mentioned in last months goals the only way I am going to get to where I want to get to in 2014 is by keeping things challenging but with an emphasis on REALISTIC. I did a good job in January but things are about to get a whole lot more challenging as I […]

February Fitness – Week 2

At last the effort I’m putting in is starting to make a difference. Last week I lost 5lbs, yes people, 5lbs & I worked for every last ounce! On the food front it was more protein and smidgin less carb. On the exercise front, whilst I didn’t get to the gym as much as I […]

REALISTIC Goals, January 2014 … How Did I Do?

On January 2nd I posted my goals for the month. I spent some time reflecting on the struggles I experienced in 2013 with getting the balance right and realised REALISTIC should feature heavily in 2014. Below is a summary of how I got on … 1) Workout at the gym at least 3 times a […]

REALISTIC Goals – January 2014

My word for 2014 is FUTURE but I think there also needs to be an emphasis on REALISTIC. If there’s one thing 2013 taught me, it’s that unfortunately I’m not Superwoman … I know what a disappointment! I need to do what I can do and not set myself up for failure. After all I […]

Tuesday Eats #3

I’m concentrating planning ahead (instead of making on the spot, random food decisions), I’m trying to get plenty of sleep and also, importantly increasing my workouts. All this while travelling with work every week and heading overseas for a project roll out in […]

Blue n’ Green Juice …

After a weeks over indulgence in NYC and an impending visit back to Kazakhstan I feel like my body is screaming for vitamins. In a bid to be kind I made this blue n’ green combo when I returned from work this evening. Ingredients 3 x small golden delicious apples 1/2 a punnet of blueberries […]

Onwards & Upwards #5

Hello September & the Autumn! How did that come around so quick? It’s time again to take a look over my shoulder at my August goals before moving forward into September. It’s been an up and down month (again), some positives, some not! A little too much socialising and not enough exercise. Balanced no, fun […]
