How having FUN could help you lose weight

As I sit down to write this, my youngest daughter is playing imaginary games in her bedroom with Lego and my eldest is spending the week with her best friend’s family at the beach. Meanwhile I’ve just sat down after running a couple of training sessions...

What Are You Waiting For?

I went to Vietnam with my family recently and, having not been overseas for a couple of years, I’d forgotten how much time you spend waiting around when you’re on holidays. I know some people revel in the downtime but it drives me insane! I just think about all the...

Is alcohol making you fat?

I've decided to go alcohol-free this month. Not for any particular reason – I'm not raising money for a worthy cause, although if you need a reason that’s a good one – I just like to lay off the booze for a few months each year. Sometimes it’s because I’m training for...

Sweet nothings

It’s fair to say I’ve had a love/hate relationship with sugar over the years. Unfortunately for me it’s been pretty one-sided – as in, I love sugar but it doesn’t love me back. It leaves me feeling bloated, tired, gassy and worst of all, always wanting more. So giving...

Fast food – part 3

A strange thing has happened in the past week, I’ve found myself actually looking forward to my fast days. (For those who've just tuned in, I'm experimenting with the 5:2 diet for a month - see previous posts for the back story). I'm kind of enjoying getting in touch...

Fast food – part 2

Fast food

If you’ve opened a women’s magazine, read a fitness blog or watched a morning talk show lately, chances are you’ve heard of the latest craze that’s sweeping the diet landscape. Google “fasting” or the “fast diet” and you’ll see what I’m talking about. Not a diet in...

Quinoa

Recipes QUINOA Chances are you’ve heard of this protein-packed superfood, but many people aren’t exactly sure what to do with it. Similar in appearance to couscous, quinoa is a gluten-free seed (although it's often referred to as a grain) that's been used by the South...

Coffee

Recipes   COFFEE Ah coffee my old friend, where would I be without you? On most days crankier and more tired, that’s for sure. Sure, like most coffee-drinkers I've gone cold turkey at one time or another, usually swayed by the latest study that tells us coffee is...

Super Smoothies

Recipes SUPER SMOOTHIES For me, smoothies (when made right) are one of the best ways to get a good dose of nutrients, protein, fruits and/ or veges into your day in one quick, easy hit. Plus they're so convenient - you can drink them standing up while you're doing...
