The Devil on your Shoulder

Posted by on April 7, 2014 at 1:00 am

Guest Post by Lisa Bullock “God, I’m fat and I feel disgusting!”   Hmm, ever had words to that effect come out of your mouth? Most of us have heard the saying “Whether you think you can or whether you think you can’t, you’re right”.  Words are a self-fulfilling prophecy, so be careful of what you […]

“Selfish” or “Sensible”?

Posted by on March 30, 2014 at 3:00 am

Excuse me for one moment, I’m just colour coding my underwear drawer – be right with you!  Oh, sorry about that – just checking that my world is organised, controlled, the T’s are crossed and I’s are dotted.    Um, just diverting to sort the cutlery drawer.  All good!  Not that I have control issues […]

Can I have the “Rocky” theme song please!

  I LOVE my boxing!   It’s probably about 14 years since I first put on my boxing gloves.  Not Taibo.  Not Boxercise.  Not girls in a room wearing pretty pink gloves doing circuits.  Boxing.  Punching people and being punched.   To many people, and especially women, it’s a “not quite nice sport” – something that […]

Confessions of an Ex Diet Queen

Posted by on March 2, 2014 at 8:43 pm

Trainer Lisa is at it again…she has an entertaining post about her ‘mis-adventures’ with dieting. If you’re a ‘seasoned’ dieter that’s tried every diet under the sun, you’ll relate and laugh at her experience. It’s great that she’s finally found a nutrition solution (you can find it here). Take a look at Lisa’s story. I’ll […]

Beware the Yellow T-shirt!!

Posted by on February 26, 2014 at 7:08 am

Guest post by Lisa Bullock I’m competitive.  Super competitive in fact – get out of my way if you’re in front of me, if you’re wearing yellow, if you’re younger than me, and especially if you’re on your phone when you should be working out! Not all of us are competitive and in fact, you […]

My Life as a Yo-Yo

Posted by on February 3, 2014 at 5:09 am

Guest Post by Lisa Bullock “I don’t think you have a single muscle in your body!” my naturopath laughingly told me. Well ha-de-haha.  What a comedian!  What a ripper joke to share with me while I’m lying there practically naked and unable to leap up (with dignity) and take my vengeance!  That was 20 years […]

Finding Fitness Religion

Posted by on January 28, 2014 at 10:26 am

 Guest Post by Lisa Bullock “I LOVE being 48!” I exclaimed the other day.  And once I had recovered from the shock of hearing myself actually express such a sentiment, my conscious mind took over and followed it up with a “Hallelujah!!! “.  Why, you ask?  I had been chatting to a friend about a […]

What Do YOU Think? I Need YOUR Opinion

Posted by on November 25, 2013 at 2:58 pm

I’d have to say that my feelings were hurt by what an ‘ex’ wrote me. I say ‘ex’ because she’s now an ‘ex-reader’.  I can only guess that this person probably has some of her own issues unrelated to me, but it still is a little disheartening.   *Read from the bottom up on the […]

8 Tips From NYC

Posted by on November 23, 2013 at 9:38 am

-17C never felt so good. I arrived back in frigid Canada last night after an amazing week spent exploring NYC with my daughter. It was the kind of mother daughter trip I only dreamed of having. Mom’s in the crowd would understand. But it’s good to be home. Hannah is 20 in two months and […]

Transformation Journey (Strategies to Succeed)

Posted by on October 21, 2013 at 7:11 pm

Guest Post by Catherine Gordon I like to think of fat loss and body transformation as a journey. The destination is a beautiful, exciting place where wishes are fulfilled, goals are reached, and yes, dreams come true. I’m a bit of a romantic by nature, but that’s a good thing because it fuels my optimism […]
