Whether you are in Australia soaking up the summer heat or walking through the winter Christmas markets sipping mulled wine in London, there is no hiding the fact that the Silly Season is upon us. Only 5 sleeps until the most wonderful day of the year; Christmas.  Continue reading “A HEALTHY SILLY SEASON”

THE QUICKEST WAY TO BURN 300 CALORIES?

It is good to mix up your gym routines and do different classes / styles of training. From zumba to swimming, from walking to weight circuits and from pilates to body attack. It’s all good and will all be doing different great things to your body. But what is the ‘quickest’ way to burn 300 calories? Continue reading “THE QUICKEST WAY TO BURN 300 CALORIES?”

A NEW YEAR; THE SWEET ’16

I cannot believe it is actually January and the start of a new year! 2015 absolutely flew by for me (and I am assuming the majority of you as well) but what a year it was. Every year I say “oh best year yet for sure” which gets me thinking how insanely awesome my life will be when I am 80 if this best yet status keeps up. Life honestly couldn’t get much better than it is right now. Sure there are the ‘minor’ things that could change or need a little tweaking but I am Healthy, Happy and Having a blast! The three H’s! Hell yeah Continue reading “A NEW YEAR; THE SWEET ’16”

WHY I LOVE; #TEAM JAGGAD

When it comes to active wear there are PLENTY of options out there ranging from cheap and basic to outrageously priced designer wear (but aren’t they just oh so beautiful?) Whether they promise to suck your belly in, thin your legs or lift that butt a few centimeters – there are more important things to look for. Like what? Good question.

BRUNCHOGA

Brunchoga is what every Sunday should involve. What is it? Well it’s just brunch and yoga. Because there is nothing better than a coffee and some smashed avo to go with that post yoga feel. It means you can dine in your activewear too! But with xmas around the corner it is also not the time to be throwing dollar bills around which can mean saying no to brunchoga. Well WRONG! You can do/have brunchoga for free in your own lounge room without leaving the house. Continue reading “BRUNCHOGA”

HIIT; NEVER MISS A MONDAY

So the number one silent rule in the fitness industry is… “Never Miss a Monday”!! So here is a quick (but killer) HIIT workout you can do in the lounge room to tick off your Monday sweat sess. Firstly HIIT huh?? HIIT stands for High Intensity Interval Training. If you have heard the buzz surrounding it, you now that it’s a super fast, very effective way to work out. Basically HIIT involves short intense bursts of exercise with less intense moves or complete rest in between. The reason why so many people are loving HIIT at the moment is because it is crazy efficient as you only need to spend 15-30 minutes in the gym whilst still coming out with the same if not more benefits as the usual 1 hour class. When you turn up the intensity on your workout you are making your heart work harding as your heart rate sky rockets.

GURL POWER

To kick off week two of #NutritionalNovember why not start with some girl power preaching. This post seems relevant considering a female jockey, Michelle Payne, won the Melbourne Cup for the first time ever on Tuesday last week and it sure as hell caused a few raised eye brows amongst the gents… but all I can say is GO GURL!!! With the ever-growing health and fitness industry women are becoming more and more independent and successful. There are so many women CEO’s absolutely killing it and slowly (but surely) taking over the world. Bit dramatic? Check out my top 6 and make up your own mind.

DRINK YOUR WATER

Why is it that something as simple as drinking water can be so difficult to remember? If I don’t have my water bottle on me and am consciously making an effort to drink water, then I will get to the end of the day without even a drip. Of course there is water in my daily coffee or two and 6 cups of tea BUT this does NOT count! Nope not even in the slightest. And before your clever little Melbourne Cup brain thought that having a few vodka lime and soda WATERS yesterday also counted – you are wrong!! Drinking alcohol is an even bigger reason to be guzzling back the water. Continue reading “DRINK YOUR WATER”
