Mate: So you can actually compete against each other in CrossFit?
Me: Yep…Pretty cool hey!
Mate: So what exactly will you be doing?
Me: Well, I’m not really sure. But somewhere along the lines of running, jumping, throwing weights around…You know, the usual…
Mate: Umm, that’s about as clear as mud.
So what is CrossFit? This is a question I get asked often. After my competition last weekend the question I get now is…Well what’s this CrossFit competition thing you did then?
I’m still trying to answer both so I thought I’d put this post together.
If you have been following my crossfit journey, a few months back I mentioned that my coach Cassie had entered myself and Stu into our first CrossFit competition at CrossFit Feel Good in Sydney. Well that day had finally come. Continue reading →
Last week we caught up with the lovely ladies Donna & Tora who are pretty savvy in the world of weight loss. They have both been through their own personal journeys when it comes to weight management, with Donna at one stage being 30kg over weight and Tora struggled with an eating disorder and weighed just 37kg!
When you meet them now they are both excellent examples of fine health. They are putting many wrongs to right when it comes to weight management by drawing from many of their own personal life experiences, and are now starting to make it freely available for others too.
To do this the girls are hosting a Weight Matters tele-seminar series focusing on weight loss advice for savvy people.
This seminar series is run once a month for one hour, and they kicked off their first episode featuring yep… yours truly and business partner Stu.
What we cover in the podcast:
What is healthy eating?
Handy tips for weight loss
Why many supplements are doing you more harm than good
What to look for when reading food labels
Quick & easy healthy breakfast alternatives
Why we are more than just a protein supplement
How to ease sugar cravings
How to use 180 protein supplement to aid weight loss
Guy: When the draft for this post arrived in my inbox a week ago, I thought to myself ‘love this!’ and was figuring out the best time to publish it over the next month. Little did I know it would take on so much meaning so quickly. I’m very sad to say my dad passed away a few days later and the relevance of this post has come to the forefront for me. So I wanted to share this beautiful written post for anyone who maybe going through their own personal challenges. Over to Eleasa… Continue reading →
