Helping loved ones loose weight

I remember several years after I started my healthy living journey, once I had successfully achieved my goal, I became quite militant about overhauling the household diet. I dived in gung-ho, making changes overnight to their dismay. As you can imagine, I was met with quite a bit of resistance. I remember once buying low fat ice […]

This is why I love challenges.

Last week, to achieve my target, I found myself making a conscious effort to move more. Some people are naturally active and as a result, have a fast metabolism. I on the other hand, naturally love to sleep, rest and lounge around which is why I workout. I have to fight my natural disposition and make […]

Set Your Environment Up For Your Success.

According to colon specialist Dr N Walker, “a well cleansed colon in perfect working order is absolutely essential for a long, productive and active life.” After the Christmas festivities, it’s now time to refocus on healthy eating. January is the month to clean out the gunk in our system, regain our bounce, feel more vibrant, energised and […]

Change your habits, change your life.

Let’s face it, overhauling a not so good lifestyle is not an easy thing to do because it involves changing many unhealthy habits. Habits are hard to break because they are automatic behaviours.

“Oh just go and get yourself a girdle!”

I have memories of my mums beige girdles. They looked like contraptions. Whenever she travelled abroad, replacing her old girdles was always a priority. As a child, I would often wonder the point of it all. I remember asking her why she couldn’t just NOT wear them and she told me that she needed them […]

Sex and Physical Activity – The Benefits.

Sex and Physical Activity – The Benefits. I can’t forget the day I briefly popped in at a friends house and we had an impromptu chat about religion. I was disagreeing with some of the things she was saying (she is Muslim) but it was a friendly chat. Shortly after I left, she called me […]

Vanity and physical activity

There is a certain age when we have no choice but to be physically active. Living in London in my early twenties, having to take pubic transport everywhere, sometimes having to run for buses and trains…. unstructured physical activity becomes part of everyday life. Back in the day, I was someone who could not keep […]
