    Grumpy Snacks

    My health journey has introduced me to many new businesses that really get me excited.  I have a terrible sweet tooth, & definitely eat my emotions.  ie if I’m feeling happy/sad/excited/depressed/nervous/stressed/any other emotion, I will reach for food.  And preferably something sweet, laden with sugar & filled with empty calories.  I have been consciously trying to make a change, & one thing I am focused on is only having healthy snacks at home & at the office.  It doesn’t always work, but every small step is still a step forward in the right direction. Grumpy Snacks is a small business that make me laugh out loud when I spotted their…

    Catch Me!

    “You should set goals beyond your reach so you always have something to live for.”– Ted Turner Life post-transplant has certainly been interesting! I have learnt a lot about myself, as well as others.  I have seen where my priorities truly lie, as well as those that would give everything to see me healthy once again. I have seen family rally, & friends disappear (as well as the other way around…) But mostly, this year has been about LIVING.  It has been about trying new things, getting out of my comfort zone, meeting new people & constantly living the best life I possibly can. This past weekend was a perfect…

    Yogle

    Namaste “the divine in me bows to the divine in you.” My journey with Yoga has been an interesting one.  I have always been interested in Yoga, & see many of my friends posting about the different poses & the benefits it has has on them physically & emotionally.  I understand how the different flows & general relaxation of Yoga can allow stress to melt away; & how it helps your mind & body to get stronger. When I attended my first ever Yoga class at the gym, I was frustrated with how little I could actually do & felt self-conscious about this fact.  I felt so stiff & the movements…

    Black Strawberry Activewear

    I attended International Yoga Day a while back with some friends.  I got to spend some time purely on myself, tried new Yoga flows, & left feeling utterly relaxed.  With the stress that every day life is throwing at me, I often feel like I am simply functioning on adrenaline & absolutely dread the day that this runs out! While I was at this event, I got to spend a little time walking around the stalls that were there & see more of what is on offer in the fitness/wellness industry.  One such stall was Black Strawberry Activewear… I was attracted to them from their bright colours & the friendly…

    Izzy

    A while back I met the most wonderful person, & I was instantly drawn to her kindness & zest for life.  Over time I have been lucky enough to see more of her, & spend time with her & see why people are so attracted to being around her.  Izzy is a “celebrity” yet so down to earth & caring.  She has had advice for me throughout my journey to health, & always has a little positive message for me.  Next month (eeek!) we are actually doing a trail run together to raise funds for Rare Diseases SA, as well as prove to ourselves what we are capable of doing. …
