After three months with no running due to a fractured foot, I finally got the go ahead from my specialist to start running again last week. Just in time to participate in the Step Up! Program that my husband and I are running in our business Empowered Health. The Step Up! Health Empowerment program includes a six … Continue reading Step Up! Restarting Couch to 5k
Three years ago I picked up my first box of products. Little was I to know what was ahead. It took me three months to ignore the excuses in my head and give this "shake diet" a go for a month. I was convinced that it wouldn't work like I had been told. How could … Continue reading 3 YEARS ON – WHAT A RIDE!
So the after effects of two weeks overseas with very little exercise and way too much rich food and cocktails was a 5kgs increase on the scales.

So I survived my 30 day coffee detox! Physically not that hard, mentally more challenging. That first coffee tasted SO GOOD!!!

Saw this at our post run cafe and made me laugh. Whilst everyone else had coffee, I had a chai latte. Wish I hadn't bothered - it was clearly just a powdered mix and was way too sweet. Prob at least 50% sugar. I can feel the crash coming on already 😴 Want to do … Continue reading 30 DAY COFFEE DETOX – DAY 25
