On my wish list… a beach cruiser bike!

Standard

With a basket, of course!

How much fun would getting from A(partment) to B(each) be on a cruiser bike?

Plus, riding one would be the best exercise, and yet wouldn’t feel like a workout at all. What’s not to love about that?!

PS. Have you tried…

Standard

… Chobani yogurt yet? You really should, it really is quite delicious.

I was lucky enough to be sent some to sample by the lovely people from Chobani, when it launched in Australia, and I’m now a huge fan (so is my husband, which means it never lasts long in the fridge!)

Of course if you haven’t already dipped your spoon in a tub of this creamy, yogurty goodness, you’ll want to know more about it and especially where you can get some, right? Well, for all the answers to your questions and more jump on over to their site by clicking here!

You can thank me later!

Health Tip of the Day

Standard

Here’s another reason, or three, to make sure you always drink plenty of water and avoid dehydration.

A study published in The Journal of Nutrition found even mild dehydration may affect your mood, increase fatigue, and lead to headaches.

So, this weekend put a spring in your step, avoid a headache and boost your mood by downing a big glass – or eight – of H2O!

New year, new you?

Standard

I’m not always the best at practising what I preach. For (cough) two years now I have been absent from all pump classes, yoga sessions and spin studios. I did walk – occasionally… sometimes… okay, not very often!

But, the good news is, I am now the owner of a brand spanking new gym membership. And I love it.

I love going, I love the way I feel when I walk out, I love that it’s a small, women’s only gym, where everyone is super friendly, and for a mere $16 {one of the things that was putting me off re-joining a gym was cost, what was I worried about, it’s cheaper than buying a coffee Monday to Friday!} a week I have more energy, feel happier and more motivated, and its kick-started a healthier way of eating. Bonus!

Did you stick to any of your New Year’s resolutions?

An egg-cellent idea

Standard

Hungry, but can’t wait until your next meal? Feed your rumbling tummy without over-indulging by choosing a snack that’s roughly 100 calories (420kJs).

What’s a good snack choice? Hard-boiled eggs are ideal.

That’s because one large hard-boiled egg (50g) has just 57 calories (240kJs), and close to 6 grams of protein (the good stuff that keeps you feeling fuller for longer).

Perfect!
