1. There is no QUICK FIX or Gimmick that works – you must make positive daily changes, small steps of trial, error, learning, continuous improvement.
2. If I want to drop a few kilo’s I eat MORE in volume of vegetables and less treats. Maybe for dinner 2 zucchini’s, plus kale, broccoli, red capsicum, cauliflower – that is just in 1 meal, plus I add protein. It is not about deprivation, when I eat more veggies I feel GREAT.
3. I am always exercising, whether it be walking EVERYWHERE, weights, yoga or an exercise DVD when time poor – exercise is my solution for EVERY negative emotion.
4. Over the years I keep changing my training regime all the time.
I enjoy trying different training all the time, rather than stick with my fave exercises that I have become good at, I am not afraid to get outside my comfort zone and try anything once!
5. Fitness starts with self belief and positive self talk.
I never understood HOW to do this.
It is about mastering your internal “Chatter” the voice in your head.
Everyone has doubts and negative thoughts, it is about repeating a positive thought when I negative one enters your head.

6. Getting fit is NOT hard, your thoughts make it hard.
Advertising and marketing make it hard because they distract you.
You don’t need anything more than real fresh produce, fresh water and a strong will to move in some way – every day.
7. Food is your Friend
Food really has changed over the past ten years and all sorts of nasty stuff is in our foods. All you need to do is read any label at the supermarket and you cannot even understand the un-recognisable names of ingredients.
If you feel tired and hungry all the time you are probably not eating enough nutrient dense foods! Get veggies into everything you make, reduce caffeine, refined foods, non organic meat and bad additives (like trans fats, simple salt,sugar – the white death) and everything will change for you.
No need to stress about it just do it gradually and if you can get rid of the nasties for the majority of the time your body will love it.
