Day 2695 - The Lovin Life Linky - Hello March

Did someone say it's autumn already?


According to the powers that be it's now autumn. We all know that autumn doesn't actually start until around 21 March, but because we Aussies need to keep life simple, we just commence our seasons on the first of the month and be done with it.

Which is why 1 March may not actually feel very autumnish.  What it does mean though, is that it's getting close.  Very very close.

So, 1 March signals autumn and it also means it's World Compliments Day (thanks for the heads up on that one Middle Aged Mama).

Which got me to thinking about the rest of March and all the things there is to love about life.

Day 2694 - The Wellness Wednesday weekly check in #wellnesswednesday

How's your health and fitness this week?


As you know I'm back on the health and fitness wagon. Why? Because I ain't getting any younger and the longer I wait, the harder it will be to get back to being the best that I can be.

One thing I've noticed as I age, the body is far less forgiving that it used to be. When it comes to general fitness it really is true that you've got to "use it, or lose it".

Wellness Wednesday is the place where I share my journey back to being fit and fabulous and invite you to think about your own health and fitness in the process.

Day 2693 - What cocktail should I drink if I'm dieting?

Mimosa anyone?




It's no secret that I'm a lover of cocktails.  I'm also a lover of champagne.  Neither are that great if you're striving for optimum health and fitness.  Unless ...

Day 2692 - Taking stock

So, what's been happening in your world?


There comes a point where we've just got to sit back and take stock in life.  To look at where we're at, not from an achievements point of view, but from a "gazing at our naval" angle.

Day 2691 - Did you know that eating smaller portions can help you stay cooler in Summer?

Eat small to stay cool


If you're still experiencing the extreme heat of summer, then have a think about what you're eating.  According to the Red Cross, it's better to eat smaller meals more often to avoid feeling overheated.

Even better is if those smaller meals are cold foods like salad and fruit.

Don't forget that on those mega heat days it's best to avoid tea, coffee, alcohol and fizzy sugar drinks as they make dehydration worse.  Stick with water all the way.

Day 2690 - Quote of the week by Reese Witherspoon

Reese Witherspoon on ageing positively: 

"It's a great thing, getting older: you are who you are; you say what you mean ... I've realised that life is too short to spend my time with anybody who doesn't appreciate me, treat me with respect or bring value to the relationship.  I'm much more confident now."


Happy Saturday everyone.

I hope you're spending it with people who add value to your life.


This quote taken from an interview in OK Magazine Australia February 27 2017.

Day 2689 - Sheet Pan Vegetables

Looking for a quick healthy meal?


I'm on the hunt for ways to make vegetables more appealing.  I have two "growing boys" in my house (although one is in his 50s) who require tasty food.  The first thing they do when they wake up is ask what's for dinner. Apparently my answer sets the course for their entire day (no pressure).

Given we've also got a vegetarian in the house who likes to eat "clean", and I'm back on track for optimum health, I've got to find a good balance of taste versus healthy.  They don't always go hand in hand.

So here's my sheet pan vegetables recipe which was a big hit for all concerned.  Please keep in mind this comes to you from a non-chef non-foodie.

Day 2688 - The Lovin' Life Linky - The "focus on fitness" edition

How focussed are you on your health and fitness?

Let's focus on FOCUS
I've talked a lot about FOCUS on my blog.  FOCUS was my word for the year back in 2012. It served me well.

The truth is that FOCUS always serves me well.  When I FOCUS, I achieve amazing results.

Right now, with the word typed in capitals, I'm forcing you to FOCUS on it. You have no choice.  FOCUS is now becoming seared into your brain.

Day 2687 - Let the health and fitness begin #Wellnesswednesday

Week one and I've begun 



Yesterday I declared to the world (the "world" being you guys) that I'm back on the road to being fit and fabulous in my 40s.  

So here I am again sharing what I'm doing, not only to help inspire others to get their health and fitness on track, but to keep myself accountable. If there's one thing I've learned, it's easier to create new habits when you're having to report in.

Day 2686 - Back to looking after my health

It's time to get back to being fit, fabulous and only slightly fatigued.


According to my tagline I'm supposed to be this fit person who looks amazing and is only slightly worn out by life.

Back when I started this blog (7.5 years ago) I was that chick that went to boot camp and was on a constant hunt for a healthy and well balanced lifestyle.

Fast forward 7 years and that MO has gone right out the window.
