“Step it up” RESULTS

Total Steps where a whooping 1.65 millon ……woohoo congrats everyone that took part.​

This Challenge started on June 1st in Australia 🇦🇺 and is for worldwide. Here are the steps I  have taken in the “step it up” challenge.

June1 – 3rd I have done 45599,
I thought it would take a while to get 100000 but I’m halfway there in three days so As this is a 15 day challenge I think a million is a better idea.

Add your results in the comments and tag NFBodies so I can add into the end total.

Keep moving.

Dietary failure 

I go through times where my usual diet just doesn’t cut it, all I want is a packet of corn chips and a large chai latte. My usual day on the plate is standard probably boring to most but very satisfying to me but, my body sometimes craves salt and/or sugar fixes which a nurse once told me to listen to. So don’t beat yourself up about falling off the wagon as everyone does, even the best do they just make it up with extra exercise when the down is back up. Life is to be enjoyable and in moderation so have fun with food and experiment but use portion control and keep a diary so you can see what you eat. 

So my regular day on the plate goes,

Before breakfast there is 2x coffee this is around 6am

Breakfast smoothie: spinach, banana, Greek yogurt, almond milk, chai seeds, pepitas, sunflower seeds, hemp seeds and hemp oil, Goji berries, blueberries, raspberries, super greens mix, and a touch of ginger.

Snack: banana &a coffee

Lunch: ham &a cheese toasty & coffee 

Snack: fruit 🍉 

Dinner: lentil soup, Dahl, spaghetti Bolognese, whatever the kids will eat ( scrambled eggs )

So this is me on today at least and it’s lentils tonight.

But it is okay to diversify from your usual diet as long as you use portion control and don’t make it a daily bag of chips or a whole cheesecake, save these things for a treat not a daily nutritional adage. 

Have a great week.

Namaste 🙏 

Mothers the way we live 😊

People assume two things when you have children, 1. That you must be so busy that you never get any time for yourself (you poor thing) or 2. That you spend your days playing games on the floor, outside, cooking biscuits or other such nonsense. While dad is at work earning the living that puts food on the table and a roof over our heads I am going to give you the inside track of a mothers life, let’s read this while we are running on the treadmill, elliptical or something of the stationary variety.

Firstly, let’s get ourselves out of bed ( kid woke you up last night cause they got cold) grab that ever needed cup of coffee thank the gods that this substance exists, let’s go with me as I have four little souls that run the daily schedule here. Check the time yep it’s just 6am you have loads of time to do the school lunches, get children dressed, shoes on and breakfast completed the bus doesn’t come till 8.10am and you only have to leave by 7.45am to make it. Oh hell the baby wants to get carried while you get breakfast and the toddler doesn’t like the breakfast choices the two older are starving. All done, feed , watered and happy time to load them in the car and take Nayer to school. Mission accomplished and it’s now 9am and nap time for baby.

Now I personally get the washing on and out while Gypsy is napping and spend a bit of time encouraging my boys to use their imaginations whilst I am doing this so when Gypsy wakes up I am settled and ready for the hungry 😋 hoards to enter and be feed this is about 11am so lunch is ready, fruit platter and sandwiches good to go for the three and all is calm and I’m thinking I might get some training in today( woohoo)😁 .

Afternoon is chilled we play pirates, get Gypsy her afternoon nap and add a group Fit session or animal yoga session to the play. This is a good hour before Nayer needs picking up from school ( dinner is in the pots ready to go by this time and the sausages are slow cooking for when Nayer gets home from school) by the time we have picked up Nayer, it’s 4.30pm dinner is just about ready, baths are nearly done and we are settled with homework completed. It’s 5.30pm now kids are watching tree fu tom full and happy 😊 and it’s half an hour before the tired crankies starts to give the call to bed. Bedtime 6-630pm with a story, cuddles, kisses and loads of sweet dreams offered.

This is a sample day and now the evening is here I might do a Yoga or weights session, fold clothes or crash on the couch, not really sure yet but pretty sure the last is going to be the winner tonight.

Most mothers get this type of day and don’t complain or even register that they have been on the go all day and quite a few work part time to help pay the bills, give that little extra luxuries that the family love.

At the same time a lot of mothers are made to feel guilty for being at home, enjoying their children and being a mother.

Next time you wish to judge the mother at the supermarket for ignoring the tantrum that baby jake is chucking or the mother that’s struggling to get little Lucy into the car, remember that these women are doing the best they can just as your mother did so get behind them and support their efforts to raise great children instead of supporting the people who believe that they know better.

So from me to you thank you for everything mothers .
Namaste 🙏

Yoga, Fitness & Life

I know I have been AWOL and thats not ideal when you do a blog. So here it is life as we have it ATM.

My little Rubin is now 3 and Gypsy turned 1 last month, it has been a busy season for my husband and therefore the family with honey production but its now eased off for the next few months.

On the Yoga / Fitness front I have since speaking last completed the Athletics Australia Level 1 Community Coaching course and am now ready to add this to the fun part of teaching kids ( mine included) I now teach Yoga twice a week in #GlenInnesNSW and also teach Kettle bells after on those 2 days which I totally LOVE.

I would love to announce to you all some fabulously amazing things that have happened but nothing much yet. At anytime your passing and want to see what I am up to come and visit the face book page and #Followme for loads of information that I don’t always get here to write about.

 

Love to all.

Namaste

When your taught by the DIVINE mother 

There are those that learn from books, visually, vocally and spiritual. Then there are the times when all that is put aside and you find someone who has been given the information from the highest spiritual mother this is the divine, the best teacher and guide in the universe. 

I was outside in a rain storm one evening doing some yoga in the pouring rain, when I asked to be guided throughout my yoga practice. Suddenly I started moving in a unique way for me and went with it. When asked what this was called I was answered with Yang Chi. This style was energetic with a beautiful tai chi flow ( I have never done tai chi before) it was amazing and at the end I felt invigorated and energise so much so that I went for a run in the rain as it got heavier and loved every minute. 

Those that know me really well would tell you that this is out of the normal for me as I don’t usually like getting my hair or feet wet unless going swimming or showering, yet here I was drenched through and loving every moment of it.

This is why I have now realised that there is Devine teaching when you open your heart and mind to it and this form that I was taught I have taught others and it has had a major and profound cleansing upon them. I have been the vessel that this has come through and it has helped myself and the few others to become centred, cleansed and uplifted in very different ways. 

So I wish to thank the universe, God and the Angels for the guidance they gave me that day, I am very grateful and blessed that they found me worthy of their divine teaching.
Blessings of Love and Light to all.

Namaste 🙏 

Find yourself with meditation

Meditation is not as hard as some make it sound, in fact it is one of the easiest things in the world to do. 

STEP 1. Turn off phones, television, computers, iPads, iPods, etc ( oh wow can you hear that, it’s called silence ) 

Step 2, find a place that you can be comfortable, quiet, and relaxed. ( yes for beginners the bed or couch is fine)

Step 3, get comfortable, take 3 deep inhalations ( exhalation is a given) tense the body on each inhale and then release on the exhale. ( feel that, it’s total body relaxation and release) 

Step 4, now that your body is prepared it’s time for the mind. All those little must do racing through ignore them and let them keep floating away. Start to focus on a single thing say a warm white light surrounding the entire body, feel it, taste it, smell it, close your eyes if you can to turn off the visual stimulation.

Step 4, stay for 30-50 steady breathes to start with. ( longer if capable)

Step 5, congratulations you just meditated for 5-10mins on your first go. Bet you feel like you have just woken up and your body is relaxed but starting to come alive with a new vibrancy that you never felt before. 

Step 6, try again a least 1-2 times a week and notice the change I. The way your mind, body and soul feels after a few weeks. 

Yes meditation is not hard to do, training the body to stay still is a little harder and settling the mind harder again but doing this just for a short time every day can improve concentration, communication, health and fitness. 

So in conclusion give it a go and stay beautiful.

Namaste 🙏
