2017 – your new clean slate


I like the idea of a fresh note pad, fresh sheets, a new hair cut, new car, new baby. There’s something wonderful about starting something new, clean and fresh. We are 3 days in to the new year – you can really leave 2016 behind and start anew.  What are you going to change?  Just […]

In the BOX – Cool Health Products delivered to your doorstep

Merry Christmas!

Healthy Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year ….. Take a break, eat well & catch whatever exercise you can (as little or as much as possible).  Relax and get ready for a new year to start soon.  

Active Wear….

Inspirational Tank Tops & Shorts. My personal active wear style.

I must admit I absolutely hate wearing skin tight lycra pants or tops to exercise in. I admire women that do, but I personally feel so self conscious that it deters me from exercising. How can I run if I’m worrying about my butt jiggling? ………………. Am I the only one? Hahaha Instead you will […]

Reviewing my 2013 New Year Resolutions:

I took a look back at last years NY resolutions and wanted to give you an update of how I went: Year 2013 resolutions: 1.       The year of the Chin Up:  Work towards doing at least 1 chin up (how… consistent weights program at the gym)  What really happened:  Nope……. No Chin up and very inconsistent weights […]

The Healthy Heart Challenge – Australia

I’m really proud of my MUM for signing up to The Healthy Heart Challenge in Australia.  This is part of the Heart Foundation Go Red for Women campaign to help raise awareness that heart disease, which is the No. 1 killer of Australian women. There are four goals to choose from in the Healthy Heart […]

Are you having a heart attack – Signs and Symptoms

Very sadly, I personally know two people that have dropped dead from a heart attack in the last week.   No chance for good-byes …… just gone …… in the age group of late 50’s to 60’s – and to be truthful, that really scares me (and hopefully scares you too) Heart Disease is a LIFESTYLE […]

Correct hydration in hot temperatures – ie. Singapore

Last weekend was the HOTTEST weekend in Singapore that I can remember having in a loooooong time.  And, as chances would have it, it was the weekend that I completed four paddling training sessions in the boiling hot sun. It is truly no exaggeration when I tell you this – one of my dragon boating […]

DBS Marina Regatta – Day 2 (500 metres)

Day 2 at the DBS Marina Bay Regatta was just as action packed as the first. I think i’ll keep it short and sweet because the results didn’t exactly pan out the way the aussie team wanted.  We tied for 1st place for the overall weekend, but due to time constraints we were not permitted […]
