Trying to find calm and focus in the whirlwind!!

Wow, what a busy few weeks I've had and I have to just hold on for a another week and a half and I will get some proper downtime and get to 'CHILLAX' as Bryce would say.

So I don't really have the energy to blog fully but I have been looking through some pics of those that are important to me, to try and chill me out, I love pictures.......so though I would share.

Me and my Paulie
day after the ALL
FEMALES this year

Me and my babies
on Mothers day this year.

My two 'true-fings'
(sis and niece)

Mumma and Maddi
Christmas visit to UK

I have heaps of other special people - my dad Geoff, my dad dad, My nan, Katie, all of Paul's family, Friends etc........ but blogger is taking a while to load pics and the post would be very long!!
Looking through my pics helps me stay calm and bring me renewed energy, also helps me to remember how lucky I am to have these people in my life.
Have a great week, remember whats important and stay true to yourself.

Short and sweet

Ok trying to keep this one short and sweet as I have a target for bed and its in 4 minutes!!

As said in a previous post, I made a change in thinking about two weeks ago now and have been working on mind stuff to try and encourage and enhance permanent change in my beliefs and thought patterns surrounding my self image and also the way i feel about food.

I really don't want to tempt fate but I think I may have just found a way that works for me, a way that is not a struggle, a way that gives me balance. Whether this has come from working on the past, working on my outdated beliefs or whether I believe that's what it is, I don't care coz I feel damn good right now.

Lets just say, I do not feel like I'm fighting anymore, I am not punishing myself and I have had some major breakthroughs in 2 short weeks, so I am just going with it. Paul has even commented that its good to see me as I am.

I will definitely get a bit of time to jot more down but I just have other stuff that is 'must do' first.

On another positive, it has always been of interest to me to help others, other than delivering Group Fitness. So I am starting my own personal development and attending my C.H.E.K Holistic Lifestyle Coaching course next weekend in Sydney.

Here is some info:


This three-level program is based upon the techniques that have helped thousands of people increase vitality, decrease stress and sculpt the body of their dreams. Each level looks in increasing detail at the underlying causes of disease and stress, considering the body as a "system of systems."

Using a coaching model, you will learn how disease and stress are preventable through healthy eating habits, lifestyle management and appropriate types of exercise. You will understand why every meal, every bout of exercise and every late night has a hormonal consequence. You will be given tools, such as in-depth questionnaires, to assess your clients and allow you to determine their readiness for change. This program exceeds anything you will learn in any other “wellness course” ... this is Optimal Health and Fitness Coaching the CHEK way! As Paul Chek says, "An individual’s health lies in his own hands; you are simply there to show him the path."


No matter what your profession, you’ll likely agree that just because someone is not sick, does not mean he is well! Most chronic diseases take years to develop, but a healthy lifestyle can go a long way toward prevention. The information presented in the CHEK Holistic Lifestyle Coaching Program does not include ‘quick fixes’- which never work long term - but instead uses proven principles which build a strong foundation for health.

I am particularly excited to be progressing in the direction of working from the inside out with focus on health, more than continuing on the destruction which is dieting and over training and being overly concerned about the external.

Don't get me wrong, I still want to look my best year round, feel great when I look in the mirror, be a role model for my kids and my members etc and not just for one comp day, so yes I will still care about the external but it will be more satisfying to me to be in a good and healthy condition year round than excellent and damaged condition one day per year.

Besides if I decide to compete again, being in good and healthy condition year round will not only make the journey to 'the day' easier and healthier process, but the lessons learnt maintaining that condition can only help every aspect of my life.

Ok so 4 mins wasn't stuck too!! not bad for a short one right? :)

Until next post, have a great week, Shar x
