Some people find solace in burpees, others like lifting weights. I however LOVE this guy and try to drop my booty to his tracks daily.
Not only is it a bit of cardio but it is hella fun. I find I just shake it out whenever I watch his videos.
The fitness marshall is enthusiastic, vibrant and funny and I totally believe we are spirit-animal-BFFS-on-otherside-of-the-world-kinda-pals.
His backup dancers are the bomb and kill it every single time. Plus, he doesn’t use typical dancers, they just look like the rest of us!
So if you want a little more pep in your step check this guy out, I guarantee you WILL NOT regret it.

I am the Kween of procrastination, promises of tomorrow and ‘gunnas’ but I have finally found something to help reign in my poor excuses and bad food choices.
Friends, let me introduce you to the DailyGreatness Journal.
The premise of these little beauties accourding to their creator Lyndelle Palmer Clarke is that you can “be your own guru, the journals help to empower you to consciously create your days, help you reach your potential and support you in realising you are the architect of your destiny”.
You can choose between either the Daily Greatness Journal, the Daily Greatness Business Planner, Yoga Journal or Training Journal (12 week).
I am planning on getting my chubby little mitts on the DailyGreatness 12 week Training Journal, how brillz will that be during the lead up to summer?
What feature I love the most is that the journals offer a holistic training guide, especailly targeted towards women. Plus, any help to be healthier and live longer is great!
In addition, if you know me at all you will know what a ridiculous stationary addict I am, and thankfully these journals are not only good for my health but also my eyeballs! Offering high quality paper, beautiful luscious designs as well as the kick in the arse I need, it really is a match made in heaven.
Pop over and check out the store at DailyGreatness today.

We all know how much little birdies eat.
A lot of time you will spend an hour making something healthy and delicious only to be faced with the wrath of a mini titan demanding only a vegemite sandwich. CUT INTO TRIANGLES – NOT SQUARES – ON THE BLUE PLATE – NOT THE GREEN ONE!
Having said that, we have stumbled onto some fantastic ideas to make healthy food just a little bit more fun!
Thanks to the team at Lolly Jane for this great collection.

Marriage can be tough. It’s an ongoing process that needs attention.
So what happens if you are in a bad marriage? Would you know the signs?
Did you know that research shows that people in bad marriages usually have low self-esteem, struggle with anxiety and depression, and have a higher rate of illness than those who don’t.
This article by Hannah Hickok indicates 7 Signs That You Might Be In An Unhappy Marriage.
It is certainly worth a read. Have you given up fighting just because it’s not worth it any more? Do you feel like you aren’t being heard? Sometimes the signs are there and you just need to be reminded of them.
Of course, it isn’t too late, but this article might help you realise there is a problem.

Holy guacamole Batman, I was just perusing my calender (cause I’m cool like that) and realised that Easter is literally just around the corner!
Nearly upon us is that time of over indulgence, over eating and general overload of chocolate!
So we contacted our fantastic resident health expert Riss Beer from Larissa Beer Personal Training to give us some hints, tips and realistic motivation to take care of ourselves this Easter holiday.
Hi again Nesters!
I know what it is like, you’re busy, you’re stressed, there’s plenty of parties and events to go to … so why not just take a break from your fitness program until after Easter? Sure, you can always come up with an excuse not to exercise. But slacking off on your exercise during the Easter break will only leave you with more kilos and more stress. So here are some tips to keep on track during the chocolate period.
- Its important to keep exercise a priority during this Easter long weekend, so if it helps schedule a certain time each day dedicated just to exercise, this way you know it will get done.
- Try to maintain your normal exercise routine as much as possible. People who are able to maintain their normal exercise regime and dietary regime during their holiday break will have more success in managing their weight.
- Watch yourself: Monitor how much you eat and exercise during the break. People who consistently monitor these behaviours in the holidays are more likely to maintain or even lose weight, sure you can have a chocolate or two for Easter, just don’t go overboard and overindulge when it comes to ALL food choices, it may taste great at the time but you will regret it later.
- If you’re travelling, planning ahead can make all the difference. Take some time to figure out what your options are so you’re ready for anything. Just a few ideas:
-Search for walking, running or park trails nearby
-Look up information about the hotel you’re staying at and find out if they have an exercise room
-If you’re staying with family, ask if they have any fitness equipment
-If that’s not an option, find a nearby gym and ask if they let guests use their facility
- If you are pressed for time and cant get to the gym, or your gym closes during the Easter period, try an at home no equipment circuit, these are great as they use limited space take roughly 30 minutes. They incorporate both high intensity cardio and body resistance exercises. Exercise DVDs are also readily available and great for those pressed for time.
- Walk as much as possible. Take extra laps at the shopping centre, use the stairs, volunteer to walk the dog (pets need exercise too)
I hope you enjoy this Easter period with your loved ones.
Happy health Nesters!
If you are still on your New Year’s health bandwagon and looking to give up soft drink then this is for you.
Like everyone knows it is empty calories, but you know, well, tasty. But still crap for you.
So, if you are going to give up maybe you need some hints.
My Fitness Pal has some great tips to give up the fizzy.
