Sunday is for Planning… Part 2

Sunday is for Planning… Part 2

So building on from my post earlier. I have meal prepped my lunches for the next 5 days, in the form of Moroccan Turkey. This way I can just grab’n’go during the week and know that I’m still getting all the right goodies. I can also put a whole recipe into MyFitnessPal and then it’s there to add in each day…

I planned the amount of ingredients before I cooked to suit my calorie and macro needs.…

Sunday is for Planning…

Sunday is for Planning…

We’ve all heard the age old saying ‘failing to plan, is planning to fail’, and in terms of reaching your health and fitness goals, this is so true. If I don’t plan for my week ahead today, by setting my days for training and preparing what food I will eat, then I know I fail, feel rushed, eat the wrong things, ad don’t train as hard. So let’s take a breath and prepare the week ahead…

Ramadan and Training in a Fasted State

Ramadan and Training in a Fasted State

Muslim_Man_Raising_Hands-2

Recently I have seen some bad press about Ramadan: the negative effects it has on the body, and how barbaric and stupid this practice is. Some of it really irked me, so I have decided to take this opportunity to deliver a few home truths about fasting, and training in a fasted state. I have a few mates who do Ramadan each year. But this year they will complete some really grueling training…

Training and the “I’m too busy” syndrome - Part 2

Training and the “I’m too busy” syndrome – Part 2

Welcome back to my three-part series on about fitting in training when we say “I’m too busy”. It happens. Life is busy! But our aim is to make fitness and health sustainable for the modern lifestyle. Last week we spoke about the health benefits of exercise, and how exercise can actually benefit your work! I know crazy, huh. If you haven’t read that post I recommend you go back and have a read…

Training and the “I’m Too Busy” syndrome - Part 1

Training and the “I’m Too Busy” syndrome – Part 1

For the past few weeks we’ve been talking to you about ‘why we fall of the bandwagon’ and motivating yourself in the winter months. ‘Motivation’ is a bit of a Pandora’s Box, there’s a lot to talk about; a lot that we can say to inspire and assist others. So, I thought I’d continue on that topic by talking about ‘Training and the “I’m too busy” syndrome’…

How often have you said to yourself, “oh,…

Why we fall off the bandwagon: Part two

Why we fall off the bandwagon: Part two

Firstly I’d like to say a big thank you to those who took the time to read our blog last week. I quite enjoyed the experience of writing an article, and I look forward to creating more articles on the “why we fall off the bandwagon” series.

As we hit the depths of another Victorian winter, the need to feel comfortable and cosy rises; having a nice log warm fire, wearing puffy jackets and having…

Drinking tonight?

Who’s going out tonight? One thing that I always think about before the weekend is the amount of calories in a standard drink. If you’re following a meal or calorie plan, then binging on alcohol can really throw you off track. I know when cutting weight for a fight, just giving up alcohol for a few weeks would lose me 1-2 kgs. Amazing huh!
But don’t get me wrong! I love a drink and letting my hair…

Back to Reality!

So as you may have noticed I haven’t posted in a while…in a fair while actually. After Christmas I, as you do, left the country!! I went to Bali for two weeks and had some amazing adventures, and then went to Thailand for two weeks. In Thailand I lived, trained and breathed muaythai, staying at Patong Boxing Gym and training twice a day. It wasn’t the first time I’ve visited and trained in Thailand, and that amount of training is actually what I’m used to leading up to a fight, but being in Thailand and meeting and training with new and awesome people makes the experience amazing!

Soooo I’m now back in Australia, back at work, back in training, back to clean eating and back to share my experiences. I’m sorry I haven’t been on here for a while, there’s so much in my head to share! Before my hiatus I had all these fantastic ideas of things to post: recipes, workouts, recipes, product stuff, muaythai, more recipes, how to snack like a bawse, aaaand recipes. 

So, BAM, I will begin my posting again and sharing all these awesome things with you. And I hope you enjoy them… heeeeeere’s hopin’ x

Christmas Goals, Christmas Goals, Christmas All the Way!

It’s Christmas Eve!! Santa comes tonight!! However, I ain’t leaving Santa no milk and cookies, I’m leaving him celery and natural peanut butter. Protein and greens Santa, protein and greeeens.

This is one of the best times of the year. It’s hot, and sunny and we get to spend awesome times with family and friends. My family is a very close family and I don’t think we have ever spent a Christmas apart. However, because we love each other’s company so much we do tend to get a little over excited when we see each other; and when I say over excited I mean we eat and drink way too much. Does laughing too hard cancel either of those out? No? Oh well, we try anyway…

I love my family but sometimes when I’m training a lot or working towards a fight I do find these times so hard. To train hard I have to make sure I am putting the right fuels into my body, and putting in the wrong thing even if it’s miniscule, you do feel it. There have been times around family birthdays, but I’m trying to drop weight for a fight; oh man that sucks so bad! It’s hard to be around the people you love and they are all having a wonderful time enjoying each other’s company, drinking, eating platefuls of food, and chocolate. I used to get a little bit of pressure from them, but now they are incredibly supportive of my goals, and my choices. They worry if my training, life balance is a bit out of whack, but that’s just because they love me.

Luckily this Christmas I don’t have to be incredibly careful watching what I eat, but I don’t want to be too silly, as I am fighting at the end of January and February. My last fight was two weeks ago, and I’m just coming back into training now after two weeks of rest, and when I say rest I mean NO training, more sleeping, and a few more carbs! It was nice, good times, good times. Now, these ‘good times resting’ did result in me putting on a kilo, dammit. Overall, that’s not too bad really. There are a lot of fighters that put on 5-10kg and I’m nowhere near that. Yay. I do want to stay small as I’m fighting at 54kilos at the end of February and my trainer suggested fighting smaller. That. Will be. Tough.

So, to get through this holiday season, enjoy my time with my family, and keep working towards my fitness goals, I am going to set myself Christmas goals. JINGLE GOALS! I am going to be proud of myself on Christmas day, and after it. No matter what…

My Christmas goals:

  • I will drink my normal 2-3 litres of water per day
  • I will train every day
  • I will still eat my normal 5 small meals per day in the Christmas lead up and post Christmas wind down and prepare things in advance (eg. To have my silent snack assassin almond stash in my bag)
  • I will still eat clean; whole foods, fruit, vegies, protein, avoid the things I don’t eat anyway like sugar! And on Christmas Day, to NOT overindulge on sugar. (It gives me heart palpatations. Does it stop me from eating it? Ummm no)
  • I will serve myself small servings, no more than I normally eat.
  • When I’m full I will push my plate away.
  • I will be proud of myself, my eating and my training after Christmas day
  • I will still be focused and disciplined with my training and the fuel I put into my body
  • I will enjoy my time with my family, not be over-obsessive about my food and training, and have an nice even balance around Christmas time
  • I will train hard leading right up to Christmas day. Every second counts.
  • I will get up early and train Christmas morning, and enjoy the beautiful Christmas morning outside. Have you ever been out Christmas morning? It’s so quiet!
  • I will have a Christmas Day afternoon siesta. It has to be done. Therefore it gets a goal.

So take that, Santa! Have a face full of these instead…

I’ve got abs to look after…
