Current Lower Body Workout

Following on from my Upper Body Workout Routine, here is what exercises I do when I want to train my lower body. Leg day for me is always the hardest as I still have issues with my left leg from an operation I had on it ten years ago. They cut through the muscle near my knee and I still…

Birthday Haul

Today I thought I’d share with you what I got when I went shopping for my birthday. I seriously love Kmart, and I made a beeline straight for that store as I knew pretty much everything I was after was available there (and oh so affordable!) Check out the video below to see what I got!  

Chai Protein: Masala Chai Review

Chai Lattes have been my go-to drink for years now, often so in the place of coffee. I love the spicy warm taste, and I could seriously drink a few of them in a day! I was quite excited to discover Chai Protein, a protein powder that tastes like a chai latte. It can be consumed hot or cold, so…

Current Upper Body Workout

I’ve been at the gym over five months now! Man time has flown and over the months I’ve worked out what things I enjoy doing and the best ways to do them. It’s been a bit of a learning curve, but I feel like I’ve finally settled into a workout routine that I love. I try to go to the…

Changing My Diet and Dealing With Hormonal …

For the past couple of months I’ve been doing some trial and error with my diet. The reason for this initially was that I was always feeling heavy and bloated in the tummy, and my stomach would gurgle continuously. I knew there must be something in my diet that was causing this issue, as it hadn’t been happening forever, and…

I Cancelled My Gym Membership?

I know what you’re thinking….Sarah you’ve just been telling us how much you love the gym and you’ve gone and cancelled your membership? Why!? Well, I’ve decided to swap gyms so I’ve ended my membership at Anytime Fitness Dunedin Central in order to change to Moana Pool Gym. I’ve done this for a number of reasons…. First up, my boyfriend…

A Review of the Shakti Mat

Sometimes I find myself getting a bit of back pain, especially in my lower back and my neck and shoulders. It’s no surprise really, when you see how much time I spend on the computer every day. While I try to retain correct posture, it’s really really hard to sit correctly and the body tends to just subconsciously fall into…

Wait, I Put On Weight?

So it’s been about two and a half months since I joined the gym, and I’ve been trying to go 4-5 times a week at the moment, and I’ve actually managed this most weeks!  I’ve  really surprised myself with how dedicated I’ve become to going, and how much fun I’m actually having as I am definitely not a sporty person! I…

The Best Berry Protein Smoothie

I’ve never been much of a breakfast person. I don’t really enjoy eating cereals and toast on a regular basis, and while I do love a cooked breakfast, that’s more of a weekend thing. For years I’d miss breakfast completely, and as a result I’d just end up eating filler foods like muesli bars or muffins mid-morning as I was…

Little Olive Tree Fractal Soy Candles

I’m on a serious candle craze at the moment and I think it must have something to do with the fact that it’s getting darker faster at night and it’s also getting much colder. There’s something nice and cozy about lighting a candle, putting on the heater, and snuggling up with a good book. It’s so relaxing and such a…
