14.02.15I’m must be a sucker for punishment! After a good rest I felt like pushing myself this morning so headed back to Main Ave at Balmoral. I managed to do this hill 4 times. It’s a shocker! If you’re feeling like a challenge try the hill sprints!
13.02.15 Motivation was a little hard to find being the Friday after a big week! My friend and I decided to have dinner in Kangaroo Point and having not completed my 30 minutes exercise we decided to park at the Kangaroo Point cliffs and walk. What an amazing view of such a beautiful city!
SNACK TIME Many commercial snack foods are high in fat, sugar and salt, and low in fibre, vitamins and minerals. Read labels carefully and don’t assume nutrition claims always mean the food is a healthy choice. Snacks often need to be planned. If you are going out, take some food with you if healthy snacks […]
12.02.15 Considering I’m in training for Kokoda in PNG hills are becoming my go to exercise! Never in a million years would I have thought I would enjoy training at an incline. It’s tough mentally to push through but very rewarding because you can see what you’ve achieved! Today I walked up and down Dukinfield […]
11.02.15 I’m so proud of myself today! I don’t know about you but I’m getting more comfortable at pushing my body further physically as the month goes on. I’m realising how much fitter I am too. I tackled the Powerful Owl Trail at Mount Cootha today with a friend. He ran with me up the […]
10.02.15 I decided my 30 minutes today would be incidental exercise to loosen some stiff muscles from yesterday’s 50 club!

08.02.15 It’s such a shame I couldn’t make the Fully Fit 5k Fun Run – looks like it was a cracker of a morning! I was stuck in bed thanks to a virus but that didn’t stop me moving for 30 minutes. I left the car at home walked the 6km return journey to the […]
07.02.15 I’m stuffed! I’ve never done hill spirits before so I thought I’d give them a go. Well, I’ve never felt a burn like that! Wow. I’ll be lucky if I can walk tomorrow. I managed to do 1 sprint and 3 walks up Main Ave in Hawthorne. What a killer! Hope you’ve all managed […]
