My month of yoga began with a busy brain and a funky hip.bigstock_Expert_Yoga_Pose_3644364

A month a go I was feeling a bit out of whack. My brain was full of chaos, bouncing around multiple projects, running my own business and not being able to switch off – especially at bed time. Ugh.  I have a chronic problem with my hips/pelvis and when I don’t exercise enough it hurts and if I do too much of some things it hurts. I needed balance.

My mega long trip of all things carbs, soda and lots of blisters. 10277628_747271971959660_2155013119285160517_n

Welcome back me!! My husband (yes, husband now woohoo) have just gotten back from our Part 2 Honeymoon – travelling the USA, Cuba and Mexico for 2 months. Before I left I was a bit anxious about a few things, my business/clients, my fitness and health. I thought I would share my experience with you.

When I first started as a personal trainer it was kind of ingrained into me that personal training and weights programs were the best and only way to train. Group classes were a bit of a waste of time and didn’t push you or benefit you greatly. Well like all things in the health industry…it depends.

I had a request for the recipe of a risotto I recently cooked. Now it’s winter i’ve kept a copy of my healthy winter warmer recipes cookbook close to the kitchen. I’m revisiting some of the recipes to see if I can make them even healthier, tastier and time saving. experimenting again is fun!!

Looking for something yummy for dinner?

Taken from my Healthy Winter Warmer recipe book. The new and improved Suzie’s herby meat patties. A new favourite of mine, tastes great for lunch the next day. You can really taste the difference between homemade meat patties and store bought, there’s no preservatives or sugar and you know exactly what goes into the patties!


It is a myth that you cannot, or should not exercise when you have your period. It is actually a really good idea for you

Find a balance between training and your period
Find a balance between training and your period

to do so, it is safe and beneficial to exercise during your period unless your doctor has advised against it.

“Whose idea was it to go bush walking?” I said as I huffed and puffed my way up a steep incline…. oh yeah, mine!

My fiancee suggested we take a trip to the blue mountains, I said great let’s go walking. I thought I need to exercise and I have my expensive hiking boots that lay idle most of the year in my closet, lets do it!
