LADIES – FAT is necessary! Now i’ve got your attention.
One of the many physical differences between women and men is the greater amount of fat that women carry; this softens the outline of the muscles, rounding out the surfaces while creating characteristic folds and grooves.
Fat in normal women represents approx between 18-20% of body weight, whereas in men it only represents 10 – 15%.

I have to say I currently feel very disappointed with the attitude of GP’s towards skin cancer checks. When I went for my annual check up of everything with my GP I told her I was thinking o getting a skin cancer check. I was getting everything else checked why not my skin? I have fair skin with many freckles/moles I wouldn’t be able to tell you without them being in an obvious place whether I get new ones or not and whether they are an odd shape or not. What constitutes an ‘odd’ shape or colour? The doctor responded by telling me that it was too expensive and I shouldn’t worry about it, only to show her if there were any I was worried about. Well as I said I don’t know what I should and shouldn’t be worried about and whether there’s any in a hard to reach/see area.
As our obesity rates increase scarily in Australia, so too does the incidence of diabetes.
A lovely client of mine brought up a topic the other day that I found very interesting. My client is 27 weeks pregnant and and received a massage recently. The massage therapist told my client that she would avoid the ankle area as this can cause miscarriage. In my studies of pre natal there was no mention of this so I wanted to find out for myself if this was true or not.
Do you ever sign up for something get really excited and then forget about it?
I signed up for the Blackmores Sydney Running Festival quite a while ago. The 9km bridge run sounded fantastic so I registered. It seems like not too long ago it was the Mothers Day Classic a lovely 8km, this is 1 more kilometre, that shouldn’t be that bad should it? Not if you train!
This article is not intended to give you an excuse not to drink water or to scare you. It’s a topic which I thought was interesting and at an early age thought not possible. Let’s explore.
Is it possible to drink too much water? Ok it’s time to get sciencey!
Who would have thought a sweat box could be so relaxing!
“What is Bikram Yoga? Bikram Yoga is a demanding series of 26 postures (asanas) and two breathing exercises (pranayamas),which is suitable for all ages and levels of ability.
Today it’s Sunday, i’ve just come back from an amazing overseas holiday and I don’t really feel like spending a whole lot of time worrying about what to organise for my lunches this week. One batch of this salad fixes my problem. One batch and I am good for the week!
Now this is going to sound a bit lame but I am going to share it with you anyway.
I was after a bit of a workout one day and I didn’t feel like doing what I usually do. I also had a day off and had some housework and odd jobs that needed to be done. So instead of doing my usual exercise workouts I thought i’d kill two birds with one stone.
Swimming is a fantastic form of exercise that sometimes gets overlooked as a way to workout.
As a child I was known as the water baby, then as I got older I got ‘too cool’ for proper swimming. Over the past few years though every summer i’d get out the goggles and take myself down to the local pools and try get my groove back.
When I realised that the first part of the program was to do some homework I was hesitant. I don’t have time to do homework….. Can’t you just tell me what I need to do?
My name’s Nicole, I’m 25 and I’m a chocoholic. Not a day goes by where I don’t have at least a few squares of the good stuff. I love food, enjoy a glass (or two) of moscato and believe exercise is a curse word. So why has Suzie asked me to contribute to this site? Here’s why…
This is a holiday AND workout post. Yes the two can go together!
In Australia it’s winter, a time for covering up in warming layers, cursing cold dark early mornings and for a lot of people slowing down their physical activity and healthy eating. Time to get out of here! A lot of people choose to flee the cold at least for a little while and seek fun in the sun. Me too!!!
