Beating Internal Conflict

Posted by:

Time and time again we are faced with internal conflicts, a dividing battle between 2 opposing ideas fighting, pushing and pulling, seemingly begging us to pick them. Both bringing convincing arguments to why their way is better.

It could be;
Get out of bed vs stay in bed,
Go for that run vs watch Netflix, or
Buy that nice pair of shoes vs pay your phone bill,
Internal conflicts are endless, some much larger than others, but for many people (myself ...

Guilt Free Donut Recipe

donuts finished

Let me start by prefacing the recipe with the following, I looked bloody everywhere for a Donut tray; Kmart (first of course), Big W, Target, Woolworths & Coles-
Only to end up empty handed.
I decided to still cook the donuts using pie trays and a little ingenuity, only to later do a quick eBay search and find them instantly.
So if you don’t already have a ...

5 Ways Even The Busiest People Can Eat Healthy

Time, it may not be as ubiquitous a commodity as many of us would like! Think about it..
The last time your internet ran slow, you were walking behind a slow person or traffic held you up, you were more than likely in a state of frustration!
We value time above most other things,
Our time is precious, and needs to be treated as such.

Above all else, you have to be happy.

Posted by:

Who wouldn’t love being happy though?

One of the things I enjoy most about my career is working with people from all different aspects of life; young and old, shop assistants to CEO’s, the seasoned athlete looking for an extra push to the first time gym goer looking to lose 50kg of body fat. Working with such diversity has opened my eyes dramatically to how we all vary in our own unique ways, but it also sheds light on the one ...

Re-writing the story

Posted by:

Much like a thumbprint each and every one of us has our own story that is unique and individual. The story we currently tell is based on past events, exposures, surroundings, experiences and influences. Each of these factors accumulates over time changing our view of the world. Now, you may already be wondering how this contributes to weight loss and training, but stay with me and you will soon understand.

As each day passes, we grasp a stronger understanding of how ...

A lesson from my father

Posted by:

Looking back at life (thus far) my father has been a great role model and influenced my life massively.
12784695_10207967405257090_1170826574_n


Growing up he has taught me some valuable lessons that play a vital role in my day-to-day life like, “lefty-loosey, righty-tighty”,  how to change a tyre and “Don’t argue with your mother, she’s always right”, (although I think he learnt that one the hard way).

I have taken value ...

Is it really your fault ?

Posted by:

2015, what a year!
For many people I know, it was an up-down rollercoaster ride of uncertainty, with each new turn bringing with it more weight to the already heavy year.  Things pile up and the weight of the prior year is only lightened by the optimism of a New Year bringing new opportunities to start again and “do it right this time”.

The BEST daily exercise, (no gym needed)

Posted by:

If I could preach one exercise that has had the most profound effect on not only my physical condition but on my life it would be one that I do every day.
Doing it has completely elevated my motivation through the roof.

Where to start !

Posted by:

A good place to start = a better place to finish.

Finding the right first move to make can be a difficult decision when trying to improve your current physical status. Far too often we make the spontaneous decision of diving into a new diet without giving the outcome/s too much thought. Although getting started is better than continuous procrastination, not achieving what you set out to can be disheartening and demotivating.

So today I thought it would be best to run ...

It Works So Much Better Inside Out

Posted by:

Better than we know the back of our own hand we know that getting in shape is hard work.

That being said it would be presumptuous of me to say that many intend to fail on their weight loss ventures stricken with naivety of diving in without any real plan. But it’s frequently seen that many of those looking to lose weight find their short comings from disregarding mental preparation.

And if there is one thing that I do preach ...

Wouldn’t it be great if we could predict today what we would have tomorrow?

Kind of a mirrorball view into the future without the Gypsy-Magic or Tarot cards.

Dieting for Success, Making it Happen

Posted by:


“Dieting”, That big bad word that is only whispered among the truly brave. The chicken breast and brown rice gym rats that “need to learn to live a little”.

Why ?

Why has one word been fabricated into some malicious term that deems impending failure.

Dieting is far too often approached from the mindset of inevitable failure. Too many people have tried and failed so many diets in their past that they try the next new diet with the absolute ...

When It Comes To Fast Weight Loss – Just Remember That 2 + 2 Doesn’t Always Equal 4

 

Everybody seemingly thinks that calories are the enemy, and that more calories equal more weight gained. Therefore, most people believe that losing weight is as simple as cutting way back on calories.

It’s just simple mathematics, right?

After all, if you’re eating 3,000 calories per day and you cut back to 1,000 calories per day, then those extra 2,000 calories have ...

The five CRITICAL things to do for your health and weight loss

Posted by:


I’m often asked what is the best diet, or the best food program, best exercise program and which single best book to recommend to improve your health, fitness or weight loss.

The answer is that there is no best way to do it.   There is no best book, and there is no right way or wrong way to do it. It does take trial and error and adjusting the acute method of application.

Revealed : The Reason Diets Fail You

Posted by:

 

This year millions of people will embark upon a diet and most will fail to lose weight. The usual response to this failure by the people marketing the diet is to blame the individual for the failure. This leaves the person feeling defeated and guilty because of their lack of “will-power”.

Blaming the individual also preserves the illusion that diets are an effective way to lose weight. I think it is time to move the ...

Would you do this to lose weight ?

Desperate times call for desperate measures yeah ?

False, desperate measures lead to regret.

Placed into a position of fear and panic naturally our bodies “fight or flight” instincts kick in, when this happens we can lose our rational thought process and do things we later regret.

Who are you ?

Posted by:

Who are you ?

Seems like a pretty straight forward question yeah ?

An average response would consist of (name), (age), (job title)…

Dig deeper, look beyond titles, age and gender and start looking into who you are as a person and if whether it is something you can see changing.

See the reason I ask this question is, far too often we become anchored to an ideology of who we are on purely a physical basis and not what our character as a ...
