It burns, it burns!

Urinary tract infections. Not something that is talked about often, but an illness that affects many, many women (and some men). The Better Health Channel, which is run by the Victorian Government, estimates that during their lifetime, as many as 1 in 2 women will get a UTI, and 1 in 20 men. I will … Continue reading

Body for Life

Hi y’all! Sorry about the blogging hiatus. For a while there, I lost my health and fitness mojo as a result of some surgery I had at the end of last year. I couldn’t do anything that used my arms much, involved bouncing around, push-ups or anything that used my pecs. Uber frustrating! Everything has … Continue reading

I’m back!!

Sorry about the hiatus guys, I was on holidays on the South Coast of New South Wales with my family for the last week. We stay each year in a beautiful spot called Bendalong, the turn-off for which is about 20 mins north of Ulladulla. It’s small with great surf, but shhh! Don’t tell anyone, … Continue reading

My fiance and I are trying to save for our honeymoon in Europe (which admittedly hasn’t been going that well…) so I thought … Continue reading

Off the deep end

The other night I saw this ad for the new series of The Biggest Loser on TV, featuring the series’ new trainer, Tiffany. The ad shows Tiffany breaking down in tears after being forced to live the lifestyle of her team; the offending incident is where she has to eat a chicken parmagiana and drink … Continue reading

Tonight’s the night, let’s rip it up!

It’s New Year’s Eve, so let the party primping begin! What do you do to get ready for a big night? Do you begin weeks in advance or do you leave everything to the last minute? I must admit, I fall into the latter camp. Tan For me, the most important party of my party … Continue reading


I would like to give full credit to Cooper at Runthreeseven for the idea for this post! Being the end of the year, I am reflecting on the things I’ve accomplished this year and beginning to think about what the new year will bring, and what I would like to achieve. So without further ado, … Continue reading
