Paradise Pilates: Fiji Core Galore

Welcome back! If your core is fairly deconditioned, I can currently really relate. After several weeks of mainly yoga, swimming and kayaking, I am slowly building back up to looking and feeling like a Pilates instructor. With your core, less can often be more – in particular if you are generally quite sporty and your […]

Pix Update – Just for Fun

Despite my broken foot, I’ve been a busy bee shooting over the last few weeks. It’s amazing how much you can cheat walking, running and even single leg squats when you’re incapacitated. Although some of my efforts required a fair bit of voltarengel, lots of ice and a strong resolve. But I think the end […]

Not the average body

70 kg is the current weight of the average Australian woman, according to a new study Marie Claire used for an article I was interviewed for. I roughly fit that criteria with my weight fluctuating a little depending on what’s going on in my life exercise and stress wise. Hence why I was interviewed. While […]

Don’t Stress If It’s Already Broken

I currently feel a little bit like a one-legged Easter rabbit – and that’s not because someone has taken a bite of my other leg but because one of the toes in my right foot crumbled like old chocolate. To be precise it turned into a hollow Easter bunny before I jumped with joy and […]

Pilates Bikini Workout

I discovered a love for doing Pilates outdoors during my sailing trip to Hamilton Island last year. The fresh air, open sky and sunlight just add a real feelgood factor to the workout.

Unfashionable, unpretty

There’s a new kind of bitchiness on the block – between plus size and straight size models. And it ain’t pretty. See, bigger sized girls have been derided and taken the mickey out of in the fashion industry for so long and their target audience of larger (or even just normal sized) women have felt […]

Reader question answered

I recently had an email from one of my readers regarding the NIDA short courses I did a few years ago. How good are they and what did you get out of it, he asked. Here’s my answer: I personally enjoyed the voice course a lot – the teacher was fantastic and it incorporated body […]

Fit, fab, feisty, fun… and foxy!

Woohoo! Get ready for some action, people! The long awaited (at least by me) Fernwood TVC is about to hit screens around Australia this week. I loved the concept from the word go. “Women, here are a few new “f” words:  FOXY… FIT… FEISTY… FUN… FAB… Fernwood” Beautifully shot with upbeat fun music and fabulous […]

Stress Less, Says My Health Guardian

In preparation for my exciting new training program next week, I signed up for a free online health check and support today. It’s called HCF’s My Health Guardian and covers all bases, from medical and family history over healthy living and eating to current body shape. My end score showed I was at minimal risk. […]
