I'm 35 going on 21. Female. Lived in 4 countries to date. Married – very happily to a lovely man :o). 2 cats…
I love to learn and try new things. That suits me just fine, as I love variety…
I like to look after myself – and am proud of it.
Fitness and the human body and mind have fascinated me for as long as I can remember.
I'm astonished at what the human body can do in terms of fitness… and in the same time how much punishment it can take from rubbish food (loads of it), and laziness. I won't even talk about the smoking and drinking…
I am also a big fan of the human Mind though.
That's why a lot of the topics I cover on my site Fit Happy Healthy are about the changes you can make in your own mind for it to serve YOU better.
One of my favorite quotes says:
"Master of Mind NOT Mastered by Mind!"
I don't "beat around the bush" with my opinions – I do "truth with empathy".
So if you're of a sensitive disposition I'm afraid you'll either have to toughen up, or find somewhere else :o). I don't do "kind" just to make you feel better. I say the things that will help you achieve your goals in life.
I'm not a health and fitness expert (I am a certified fitness instructor, but I won't shove fitness qualification acronyms under my name – those mean something only to fitness professionals…).
I'm not a doctor. I'm in the trenches. Reading, learning, testing, keeping what works, discarding what doesn't, then moving on. Constantly expanding…
I'm a bit like my own experimental bunny really (apologies for the analogy). I learn, I try it on myself, and if it works I pass the knowledge on to others that can make use of it. So I'll never ask you to do something I either don't believe in or that I haven't lived through myself.
That said, take care of yourself, and before you take action consider your own circumstances and consult your own doctor – read full Disclaimer here.
Finally, I hope you will join our FHH community and enjoy the conversations we have there.
I think you'll find it a refreshing place where you can get straight answers and valuable info to keep you feeling at your best.
I want to leave you with this beautiful quote from the Little Prince by Antoine De Saint-Exupery… which guides my life and helps me center myself in tough moments:
“It is with the heart that one sees rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.”
See you around. And whatever you do, don't forget:
