Restoring my health and fitness

Like most people I have gotten incredibly lazy and embraced sloth mode during the early months of 2020 and now I am paying for it. After spending this morning changing outfits seeing what made me look 'ok' I had to have a real talk to myself. I do not look ok. I am overweight and… Continue reading Restoring my health and fitness

The importance of gratitude

Our brains have a nasty habit of turning something that went wrong in the day, a simple problem, into a big deal and it has a flow on effect. By practising gratitude, an important aspect of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) one can help manage their stress, anxiety and in my case depression. CBT is a… Continue reading The importance of gratitude

Reality of no travel, setting goals and where I am at

The World got smashed by this pandemic in March and it is now August and it will be going on for some time to come. Experts say this pandemic could last as long as 2 years as history has shown with previous pandemics. We could suffer up 4 waves of the Coronavirus. I have gotten… Continue reading Reality of no travel, setting goals and where I am at


30 day decluttering challenge

I think it is safe to say that lockdown will remain until the end of April after the Australian Government ramped it up again and imposed stronger restrictions on our day to day lives. So I decided to put together a little tracker for myself and will complete a 30 day decluttering challenge during April… Continue reading 30 day decluttering challenge


March 2020 – Everything has changed

What a weird and wild time March has been with this global pandemic that has hit us. The world hasn't seen anything like this is just over 100 years and we are doing our best to keep COVID-19 at bay. I am big on keeping notes and journals of my daily life to help me… Continue reading March 2020 – Everything has changed


Cancer Council March Charge update – At the halfway point

If there is one thing I have learnt very quickly with this walking challenge is that when one works in an office and spends a lot of time in front of a computer, you hardly walk at all. In the first week of this challenge I was pretty sore from pushing myself to even make… Continue reading Cancer Council March Charge update – At the halfway point

Sunday Funday: Lunch in Cronulla, March Charge begins and Autumn has arrived

What a day! Sunday kicked off with a drive out to Cronulla where one of my friends, Rozanne, lives with her daughter. The 3 of us caught up for lunch at a great little cafe called Anna's Bookshop which was so cute. The menus were old Golden Books that were repurposed. The big kid in… Continue reading Sunday Funday: Lunch in Cronulla, March Charge begins and Autumn has arrived

Morning people are the worst- My night routine

It is nearly midnight and I am cleaning and decluttering my house. Why? Because I do my best work at night, not at some unholy hour in the morning. Morning people are the worst and I am tired of reading blogs and watching You Tubers talk about the benefits of getting up at 5am to… Continue reading Morning people are the worst- My night routine

Goals, lifestyle

Goal setting and areas of empowerment

Life is all about balance. Plain and simple. We all want success and for all areas of our life to be on top of its game. Truth be told, we can have it all, just not at the same time. No matter how hard we try, there is always something within our lives that falls… Continue reading Goal setting and areas of empowerment

Do one thing at a time and do it well

The days of trying to do everything at once are long gone, for me anyway. Maybe it is maturity or I'm just too old for this crap but I can no longer push myself to do every little task, a hundred kilometres an hour, at the same time. Whether it be for me or someone… Continue reading Do one thing at a time and do it well
