Day 2099 - Commitment versus Addiction

There is no doubt about it, I am committed.

Commitment is one of my strongest traits. If I asked a crowd of people to sum me up in a word, "committed" is probably the word that would come up the most.

Day 2098 - Pain

Migraine AND Fibromyalgia.

Tried to go for a beach walk this morning but had to abort that mission. Too much pain.
This pain stuff is a pain.

I hate that so often when I work hard to get good results I end up paying for it. After a long but very successful weekend on the Gold Coast with my books, I am now laid up with migraine AND fibromyalgia pain from my neck to my toes.  Or it could be nerve pain, Hard to tell.

I guess if I have to be feeling like crap I might as well be feeling like crap with fresh sea air and a view.

I've just booked in for a massage and some heavy duty painkillers.

See you on the other side.

Day 2097 - Author Signing

#Writer'sCramp

Looking kinda exhausted - where's my own personal hair and make up crew when I need them?
Oh, that's right ... I don't have my own personal hair and make up crew.
Damn.
I love signing books. When children want their books signed, I just swell with pride and appreciation. 

It takes me a long time to sign a book ... and even longer when they buy all six.

Day 2096 - Aussie Gold International Cheer and Dance Championships

I love Aussie Gold.


So we've just started day two of the Aussie Gold International Cheer and Dance Championships.  I love this comp!

First of all I adore the woman who runs this competition. Nerine is kind, supportive, committed and dedicated to the sport of cheerleading. Plus she's one of Cheer Chick Charlie's biggest cheerleaders.  And she's just plain nice.

Day 2095 - The Gold Coast

Oh what a difference a flight makes!

Channeling my inner Eskimo in Canberra one day; a flight to the sunny Gold Coast the next.
Here I am tapping on the keyboard in the relative warmth of the early morning Gold Coast.  Gold Coastians probably think it's bloody cold (it is winter after all) but this Canberra chick is thinking it's pretty damn divine.

Day 2094 - Nice 'n Easy Age Defy Product Review

Want to cover your greys?


Grey hair is not something I want to give in to. I know many women do (and I applaud them) but I would like to hold on to some semblance of youthful colour for as long as possible.

Day 2093 - My Insta Week

My Insta Week





On this Wordless Wednesday I'm being lazy and giving you my week in Instagram again.  I know, I know ... boring. But I'm just so darn busy right now and it's the easiest way to grab a pictorial summary of my life! It's similar to last week, just with a whole lot more of my brown leather jacket.

Day 2092 - Other People's Stories

I love hearing other people's stories.


Autobiographies are by far my favourite reading material.  Especially autobiographies of people who have worked hard to achieve dreams or make a better life for themselves, or have fought against incredible odds to not only survive, but thrive.

Day 2091 - Power Foods: Eggs

Want to start your day with some extra energy?

Today's breakfast - imperfect eggs on a bed of baby spinach

Choose eggs! They're high in protein with each egg containing around 6g of protein (half in the yoke and half in the white). Apparently us ladies need about 45g protein so two eggs for breakfast gets us off to a great start.

They say that eggs should also keep us fuller for longer,  According to Dr Oz in Good Health Magazine July 2015, a US study found that people who ate an egg for breakfast had lower levels of grehlin (a hormone that stimulates appetite) three hours after their breakfast, compared to people who ate cereal with the similar protein quantities.

I know what I'm having for breakfast today!

Day 2090 - Lovin Life

What Sunday looked like.


How can you not love life when you're surrounded by cheerleaders! Cheer Chick Charlie and I had a fabulous day at the ACT Can Cheer competition.  So cool meeting the fans, watching the routines, mixing with all the fabulous coaches and getting to be an active member of the cheer community.  Charlie had a blast handing out the trophies at the awards ceremony!
