My favourite post partum bliss balls

The first few weeks (months?? yearrrrs??) after giving birth pass by in a blur that feels like forever but also like five minutes. Days and nights are interchangeable, dry shampoo is your best friend and you’re so focused on this tiny, defenceless human you’ve been tasked with keeping alive that it’s easy to forget to look after yourself. Whether you’re breastfeeding or not, you need to fuel your body with good quality food, and that’s why these post partum bliss balls should be within reach at all times. I’ve adapted them from an Ayurvedic cookbook and they’re so super quick and easy to make ..read more

8 pieces of advice I wish I’d taken while I was pregnant

About 38 weeks pregnant with Alfie. Better abs here than I have now. When I was pregnant with my first babe I had pregnancy advice coming at me left, right and centre; all of it well-intentioned, some of it contradictory, and most of it going in one ear and out the other because #pregnancybrain followed by #sleepdeprivation. With some of the advice, my well-intentioned friends might as well have been speaking another language. Now that I have two babies, and the benefit of hindsight, I thought I’d put pen to paper in case it may be useful to someone else out there. 1. There is no ‘right’ co ..read more

10 ways to burn more energy during lockdown

Yeah mate I’d really love to re-pack this drawer for the 867th time this week. OK so lack of movement isn’t usually a struggle when you’ve got young kids (in my experience, sitting still is approximately 833 times harder) BUT with gyms closed and stay-at-home orders in place across Sydney, it doesn’t hurt to have a few extra ways to burn energy up your sleeve. So with that in mind, here are 10 ways to burn more energy during lockdown. Just for you, my fellow parents of toddlers. Build an obstacle course. Try not to make it too difficult… if you notice your toddler climbing the downpipes, yo ..read more

15-minute no-equipment lockdown workout

Far out, it’s been quite a week. I planned to post this workout last Wednesday, but life disintegrated into a total sh*tshow. We spent Sunday night in Emergency after Alfie tripped and hit his head on our coffee table. Thank goodness there was no head injury beyond the superficial, but he needed an operation with a plastic surgeon to fix it. I am wracked with guilt; he, meanwhile, has taken it all in his stride. He barely complained through 5 hours in Emergency, 24 hours without food (do not underestimate how impressive this is for a toddler!), and 12 hours in the hospital waiting room with n ..read more

Re-discovering myself after kids

#mumofboys Before I had my first babe in December 2018, I imagined that I would be back exercising within a few weeks, back training people within a few months, and back working full-time in 12 months. Cut to July 2021 and I’ve only just started exercising with any kind of structure, my PT registration has lapsed and I never quite made it back to full-time work before I got pregnant with my second babe (born September 2020). I was completely unprepared for the way that having babies would throw my priorities, my goals and my sense of self up in the air, shake them around and then send them c ..read more

Bengali-style light fish curry recipe

I was never what you’d call a talented cook, but since having Alfie my repertoire has dwindled to consist of approximately five dishes, Uber Eats, and calling my mother-in-law for an emergency delivery. So when I got the opportunity to land (ahem, that’s a fishing pun) 2kg of barramundi fillets from Humpty Doo Barramundi, I was excited but slightly nervous to try a fish curry. After all, 2kg is a lot of fish, and when you’re gifted that much fresh, sustainably-farmed seafood, you want to do it justice. Barramundi isn’t my usual go-to in the land of fish (I’ve always been a salmon gal) so ..read more

The easiest 8 at-home workouts EVER (pt. 1)

It’s incredible how quickly so many gyms and studios have managed to shift their offering online during the COVID-19 pandemic. It has made at-home workouts so much easier during this period of isolation. And while I know bootcamps and group gatherings are beginning to open back up (across parts of Australia at least), I think there’s a fair portion of the population (me included) who are going to be stepping verrrrrry cautiously and watching closely for a potential spike in cases over the next few weeks at least. So while we’re still staying close to home, I’ve pulled together eight at-home wo ..read more

A Christmas Workout – LGF style

Santa has the sweetest life. He does literally nothing for 364 days (I’m sorry, but we all know the elves do the grunt work and Mrs Claus is the brains of the operation), then pulls one all-nighter that basically consists of flying around the world with intermittent breaks to eat some cookies, thus cementing his place as most loved human on the planet. Honestly it’s kind of BS if you ask me. But I’ve gone off on a tangent and should probably start again. You may have noticed that the world has really taken its Christmas-ing up a notch in the last few days. And with only nine sleeps left until ..read more

You know what’s better than working out alone? Well, lots of things actually. But for the purposes of today’s post, the answer is ‘working out with a friend!’. For starters, it’s waaaay harder to skip a workout when you’ve got someone who’ll make you feel guilty about it. You’ll go harder when you’ve got someone to compete against too. Oh plus you’ve got someone to chat with about how much fun burpees are while you’re during burpees together. It’s almost too much, right?! And if none of that gets you going, then just think of the coffee you’ll get to have together afterwards. Sold? Excellent ..read more
