Its Important to me…..

I can’t even begin to think about what has occured over the last 12months as its been a touch longer than that since I last blogged.

You know I just LOVE to blog, blogging allows me to express my thoughts and emotions unlike any other form of Social Media conservations. So in a nut shell…

We have launched some new classes this year at The Studio, we have re located The Studio, I now have a staff member, numbers have increased in our Commitment Fitness members and life is full steam ahead, in a nut shell.

Lets be honest though, relocating my business whilst still running a business (and another business of mine) and Mr CF harvesting, 3 kids, it was far from ideal, not that there would  have been an ideal time either to be honest, but this was tough. I opened my eyes on more than one morning at 4.30am to take loads of equipment, clean properties, so i could be home for Mr CF to go milking, so he could come home earlier so I could go and start work, so I could get home again to get kids sorted for school etc so we could both start that day…at 8.30am, no wonder I was looking for lunch by then! The nights were late, the tension was high, we were all exhausted, overwhelmed and tired..really tired. We had no option but to keep going and in hind sight without an end date – it doesn’t push you too those big limits you know, I could go on about more of those two weeks, but you get the gist.

I had someone ask me the other day where did I find the time, this is a sensitive topic I find as people are time poor, I get that, we all have the same amount of time in one day..however, we have different priorities to how we want to spend that time and what is important. Its important to me to fuel my body with good food, so I meal prep on Sundays, Its important to me that my children lunch boxes follow a suit of food, so I bake in abundance on Sundays also, Its important to me to find time to exercise and get my own endorphins, so I wake early. Its important to me to spend time with my husband, so I stay up late, this is how I find time, because its important to me.

I have been ridiculed in the past for making a comment about myself and how I felt like I had it all together, instead of commending my choices, I was told I made women feel inadequate. I don’t, I never would, I see no need to compete with anyone or explain my actions for how I conquered the world that day.

So here I am nearly 2 years on, letting you know today I have my shit together, tomorrow I could be rolling in it and Sunday I doubt ill be baking it…but today I do. I don’t have my shit together to make you feel inadequate, I have it together because its important to me and I want to make it happen, I made the time to do so.

I hope to be back here again soon, big things are happening so watch this space…

Your Trainer,


Drawing a blank…

Sin sin..i haven’t posted here for a month and I feel i have so much to report that Im not even sure how to title the post for it.

Lets start with the quitting sugar and how thats going, a little recap;

Week 1: I cruised through the first 2 days then hit Wednesday…I won’t forget that day, it was awful and i could have been found in the bottom of what felt like a black hole, you could have kicked the dirt over me and i was done. It was tough. I go to work and am this vibrant bubbly go getter person, I had to paint that face on on that Wednesday as I was awful…i won’t forget that day. But i made it to the Friday and thought…I feel alive…I had energy and it was good.

Week 2: The detox began, I couldn’t have my x50 green tea…or fruit, for 4 weeks. Was this program insane, 4 way was i going to manage. Nothing stood out in week 2 that was painful or had, the food was great, i love the menu plans and its seemed to coast along this week..

Week 3: Following along the same path as the week prior, all good here

Week 4: Clean extra detox, as if the 4 weeks wasn’t enough lets throw in no alcohol, no gluten & no coffee….*insert scratch the record noise and stand to attention* no coffee…because on the Sunday of week 3 i felt pretty good, surely i could do 5 days of this. That was until about 12pm on Monday…it wasn’t fine. I was EXHAUSTED, i have felt tired sporatically throughout the program but here this Monday topped the Wednesday in the first week. It was worse than ever. Who said the day before i didn’t think it would be that bad, WRONG. I needed sleep, i went to sleep at lunch for nearly 3 hours, i then woke to carry on with my day and work but made sure at 7.30pm it was lights out and i wanted to sleep for an eternity and wake up cinderella. Well i woke better, no fairy tale on the Tuesday morning, but it was better than the day before, i hope there is no topping that worst day, ever. But i managed the 5 days, how….hhmmm support. I have an amazing support group where we bounce off each other, but the program is so amazing you can’t go wrong, there is questions on EVERYTHING and an answer for ANYTHING. Im already saying i will do the program in January again..why not, knowledge is power! On the Sunday i decided it was 28 days and time to weigh in, measure and re do photos. Mr CF and i agreed the photos didn’t replicate what we both see in real life, the scales were welcomed with open arms and a nice result and measurements were pleasing also. So Welcome the new week.

Week 5: This is now, so I’m only one day into it. Today i started to clean out my pantry..bit of label reading went on and i started cleaning it more need for a lot of that stuff..and i don’t think i have ‘bad stuff’ anyway. Watch this space on how this week ends 🙂

But moving along, what else has been happening…

There has ben a few tweaks to the Timetable in The Studio, The Studio is hosting a cooking evening on how to make a few items (one being fudge & chocolate) with DoTERRA Essential Oils and then we are having an Intimo Fundraiser for a local cause in town to help raise funds. There is also an open day that myself and a few of the natural practitioners out the back in the clinic are hosting, a great opportunity to grab any Christmas Presents (vouchers) for loved ones, help them to look after there health and wellbeing!

Im am about a week off being signed off on my Pregnancy & Post Partum Qualifications, thats super exciting and I have loved the journey on that course! I have a few more courses planned for 2016 🙂

On Friday night I hosted a ‘Girls Night In’ which was a huge success and i thank everyone who attended, helped and donated time or product to make it such a success. Currently the raised funds are sitting at $1700, amazing.

I wanted to touch base also while I’m here on how lucky I am with the clientele that enters my doors. The men and women that attend classes are supportive, caring and such selfless people. They bring each other up and build empires amongst themselves, I am so lucky to have these clients that I am surrounded by day in day out. I don’t take things for granted ever, I know at times i truly don’t know how much of an impact commitment fitness has had on peoples lives, But I do see the support of one another and my eyes are wide opened to that. Thank you all, that is so comforting to see day in and day out.

Your Trainer,
