Last weekend I was pretty thrilled to see the inspirational J.O live in the Sydney Opera House. He was here to talk about his Food Revolution movement, a global petition to make food education compulsory in every school, just like maths or geography.

personal training and q&a with cassie white

Pink floyd profile

I’ve always been curious about what it’s like to have a personal training session. There’s something about the one-on-one attention, that perfectly tailored approach to achieve your fitness goals, that makes you feel like you’re guaranteed to achieve beach-body (if that’s what you’re after) success.

Well, I was lucky enough experience a PT sesh last week with personal trainer, yogi and health journo, Cassie White.

Last week I was lucky enough to have one of those weekdays spent chatting to a like-minded soul about life. In a park. Under the spring sunshine. Eating a raw cake. Bliss. It’s one of those simple pleasures that can leave such a lasting impact on your whole week, don’t you think?

guest post: five things successful people do differently

One of my favourite inspriatonal quotes EVER! One of my favourite inspriatonal quotes EVER!

the paleo way, sydney: highlights

A few weeks ago I was a guest at The Paleo Way talk held by Earth Events. Not only was I fortunate enough to meet healthy chef and Paleo advocate Pete Evans and author of Primal Body, Primal Mind Nora Gedgaudas, but I was left feeling more passionate about spreading the benefits of living a Paleo lifestyle (which I’ve touched on briefly in my food philosophy post).

I love this quote. It sums up exactly what I need to say to myself when I get too wound up. And because stress is the major focus of week 3 on Kate Troup’s W8less program (a holistic program which I have written about here and here), it’s made me realise how important it is to manage it – to consciously carve out some time to reset my body when it goes into overdrive (as it easily can in our modern, fast paced lifestyles).

a note on introversion

    Sometimes I just want to curl up under my shell and hide. My slightly inhibited ways could be because I’m a Cancerian, in which, like the crab, we like to protect our soft insides with a tough outer exterior. But it’s mainly because I’m an introvert (an INFJ to be exact). I have a natural tendency to prefer my own internal world of thoughts and feelings than wanting to be around a group of people.
