Guilt Free Chocolate Brownies!

Always on the search for healthier ways to enjoy the sweet goodness in life, without it keeping me from any goals or progress on my fitness journey. I came across these brownies when Michaela made them and shared it on her Instagram story.  She didn't even hesitate sharing the recipe with me, and like anyone [...]

Alessia Araujo

If you haven't seen or heard about her yet, I promise, it was just a matter of time.  Alessia is a 22 year old lady boss;  juggling work, studies, family and friends, she even still makes time to slay in the gym. Following Ally on Instagram, you don't even get a glimpse of what keeps [...]

How I started seeing the beauty in things

The little things, they're what truly matter right?  Best start seeing how beautiful they are. I used to scroll down my Facebook feed and negative, actually rude thoughts, would pop up.  Things like "Why did she make this her profile picture?", or "No one wants to see how your dog is staring at you".  Without [...]

Banana Bread: Super Easy Super Healthy

This "Nana Bread" recipe, as she calls it, is Lauren Mouton's.  I've recently come across her Instagram profile, and was immediately compelled to try one of her recipes! This recipe is so easy to follow, and doesn't take long at all.  I love recipes which are especially quick to make, just because in today's fast [...]

I lift weights with love.

I've been asked what my goal is with fitness an immense amount of times, and I never knew what to say.  It started annoying me that I'm always speechless when asked this question,  so I started thinking. Ultimately, I guess the goal would be to be able to inspire girls to love their bodies enough [...]

Time to get Strict

Starting tomorrow, Monday 10 July, I will be way more strict as to what food I'm putting into my mouth. I eat relatively healthy, but always still allow sneaky treats when they come my way.  Sometimes, a sneaky treat comes along and basically just triggers a craving for more and more chocolates, candy and biscuits. [...]

Gym Rage – Relate?

"I love going to the gym" is an understatement, truly. I can write an entire post on the previous statement and I probably still will, but here's something that really keeps me from killing a workout. When someone is "using" a machine, but is on their phone the whole time! Every gym, no matter how [...]

First trip to the gym

... after a three week holiday in Thailand. I was lucky enough to travel to Thailand, and experience first-hand what a beautiful country it is.  Whilst being there though, the only exercise I got, was three trips to one of the poorly-equipped hotel gyms, swimming, and the tremendous kilometers covered by foot, exploring all the [...]

Treat day – April

29 April 2017 Today I painted!  🎨 I dove into my mother's art paraphernalia and took what I found to be a beautiful combination of colors.  I don't paint often, but I like it.  So on this day of treating myself, I took ownership of Mama's art studio (aka our closed balcony), and painted, with a [...]

Should you be counting Macros?

Macros, a word circulating in the fitness industry for quite some time, however, some people may have only heard of it recently. Left wondering what it is and if you should start adding them up? Counting your macronutrient intake means counting the grams of proteins, carbs and fats you take in within a day. This [...]

You were made to accomplish your Wildest Dream

Those dreams you dare don't tell anyone about because it's absurd and wayyyyy too unrealistic, those are the ones you're meant to chase. It's become almost normal, to have this one massive thing that you'd really like to accomplish one day, but end up putting it aside permanently because you've settled for something a bit [...]
