A Different Tack

Is it odd that my inspiration to start writing for my blog again has come from watching a movie about one of America’s greatest writers? I suppose it’s not really that odd. If you can’t get inspiration from a famous writer, then where can you? I’m currently sitting here at my computer after spending the last half hour contemplating where I want this blog to go. I couldn’t sleep, and for me, that is a rarity. So here I am sharing my thoughts with my long-lost audience. I think I might change my tack a bit with this blog, not […]

The date is set, the tickets are booked, the planning is underway. I am finally going on my overseas adventure, and I am so so so very excited because I’ll also be sharing it with my husband! Well, he will be my husband by the time we leave. I’ve had this dream of going and living in Europe for years, probably since high school actually.

5 Things I Learnt From Doing A Semi-Private Gym Program

5 things I learnt from doing a gym program

  My Bad Christmas Christmas was pretty bad for me in terms of over-eating and lack of exercise. But the worst thing about it was I knew I was doing it and I didn’t care because again I knew I was kick-starting the year with a 28-day high-intensity gym program, which included a weights and nutrition plan.

Achieving Your Goals

Goals

  Goals Setting goals is a very important part of getting through life and achieving the things you believe in. Be them goals that you consciously set or ones that just happen in everyday life. By setting goals you help yourself to succeed. Without goals you can lose focus and direction. If your goal is to become a millionaire, practice acts of charity, learn a new skill, or like me, rebuild your fitness and health you need a defined path to help you on your way. To simply say ‘I want’ and to think it will happen will always leave you […]
