The Two Things I Did To Quit Adding Sugar To Coffee

2019-05-19T17:21:20+11:00

I quit adding sugar to my breakfast cereal years ago, but I still add it to my coffee. But I’ve slowly been cutting back the amount of sugar I have in a coffee and even tea for that matter. I’ve always had two sugars in my coffee, even when I was drinking store bought flavoured coffee sachets. It does make me sad to admit that on top of the 10g of sugar already in it that I was adding another 10g. It was time to quit adding sugar to coffee. I've used two tactics recently to help me lower my [...]

The Easiest Meal Plan

2019-03-14T22:00:15+11:00

The importance of meal planning is touted on almost every money-saving blog and is a priority for many stay-at-home parents. But I generally meal plan because I like to know what to expect. You see I am horrible with surprises and not that good when it comes to a change of plans. But I think I've come up with the easiest meal plan. I only meal plan our dinners and I try my best to be flexible about it. Events pop up out of nowhere and there are nights when nobody wants to cook. Most of the items are stored in [...]

The 30 Days I Gave Up Coffee

2018-11-06T21:27:27+11:00

THE CHALLENGE I gave up coffee, for 30 days in a row. Call me crazy but I gave up coffee. I had my last beautiful brew on Friday, January 12. The surprising thing is that I don’t really miss it as much as I thought I would. I would have given it up earlier knowing that. Now don’t get me wrong, I do love the taste of coffee, that’s why I drink it. I do also use it as a substitute for morning tea, to keep me going through to lunch. But over the years I have learned that I [...]

Why You Should Donate Blood

2019-02-25T19:40:17+11:00

It only takes an hour to donate blood, but it could save someone’s life. A few years ago I decided that I wanted to donate blood. I was disheartened that I wasn’t able to complete my first donation. You see, I am a fainter. I don’t like needles. I really don’t like having blood taken. Even talking about it often makes me go weak at the knees. But I just felt really strongly that this was something that I needed to do. I felt so strongly about it that I became emotional thinking about it. Since that first attempt, I [...]

How To Save Your Feet At The Beach

2019-06-29T13:44:24+11:00

Australia Day is synonymous with many things. A warm summers day. Sausages cooked to perfection on the BBQ. Ice cold beer in the esky. A lazy day at the beach. Southern Cross flags rippling in the breeze. The strange tan line on your feet from your thongs. Even if the weather is not quite perfect, you know the beach will be busy. It's best to get there early in the day to secure that prime piece of real estate. You want to be equal distance from the car to the water. And don't forget to take the tide into account [...]

Leg Day Recovery Tips

2018-09-28T14:00:20+11:00

Leg day is one of my favourite days. I love feeling sore afterwards like I’ve put in some real effort. But after a while, the soreness can become downright annoying. Depending on what time I work out, I generally notice some soreness around 20 hours afterwards, which peaks around 24-36 hours afterwards. Leg Day Recovery Tips Go for a walk the next day – One of the best things you can do is keep moving. I like to take my dog, Harley, for a walk the next morning. Depending on how sore I am over the followings days will depend [...]

A Change in Coffee Habits

2018-11-06T21:18:23+11:00

I have been drinking coffees from the Nescafe Cafe Menu for at least 6 years now. I originally picked them up because I wanted to start drinking coffee (I guess because it appears to be an adult thing to do) but didn’t like the instant stuff my parents had. I've always loved the smell of coffee but never liked the taste until I tried this brand. But I think its time for a change in coffee habits. To be honest, when I first started having them I was having 1 sugar in the flavoured ones and two sugars in the [...]

Unusual Effects of Going to the Gym

2018-10-28T20:47:08+11:00

On the 15th of January, I finally joined a gym. I had been considering it for a little while, mostly because I love the idea of running inside away from the elements. I follow the gym on Facebook &and noticed they were offering a very attractive deal, compared to the other 24/7 gyms in my area. I’m pretty sure all the gyms in my area are now 24/7 anyway. Back in December I started using a ‘couch to 5k’ app and was making good progress but was finding it hard to get going in the various climates of the Australian [...]

A Day in the Life

2019-07-14T21:11:00+11:00

Follow me, as I describe a day in the life. As a belated (October) birthday present, I took my mum for High Tea at Hotel Windsor. I wanted to go during the week because I thought it wouldn’t be so busy but it had to wait until I had time off work over Christmas. They offer two sittings 12.30pm and 2.30pm, I thought 2.30 was more appropriate for afternoon tea but is only offered Wednesday to Sunday. A day in the life Mum also wanted to go to Chadstone Shopping Centre, which is the largest in the southern hemisphere. I’d [...]
