5 ways to kickstart your fitness routine & survive zombies

1. Maximise your time (HIIT it) Not everyone can afford 2-hour gym workouts, which may not even be as effective! Aim instead of high-intensity interval training (HIIT) that alternates between work and rest to jump start your metabolism. HIIT workouts are typically really short and I’ve never done one that exceeded 30 minutes. 30 minutes workout … Continue reading 5 ways to kickstart your fitness routine & survive zombies

Eat clean… Because it’s sustainable

The last post in The Case for Eating Clean series will also be the shortest one! Woohoo! In previous posts, I've reasoned for why I think eating clean is a simple way to embark on a better-diet-journey and why it is a scalable compared to other diet protocols. The final reason why I think it's a … Continue reading Eat clean… Because it’s sustainable

Eat clean… Because it’s scalable

In my previous post, I wrote about what I mean when I say "eat clean" and why it is a simple principle to begin with if you are looking to take that first baby step into a world of better diets. (I still hate that word, but it's pretty accurate.) I believe that simplicity is … Continue reading Eat clean… Because it’s scalable

Eat clean… Because it’s simple

(If you haven't read the introduction to The Case for Eating Clean series, you may do so here.) Before we begin, what the heck do you mean by "eating clean"?

That said, as much as 'good nutrition' is a … Continue reading The case for eating clean (before counting calories or macros)

Kegels, Squats, and your pelvic floor

Say what? Yes. Your pelvic floor. The lovely thing about the interweb is that clicking on links invariably brings you somewhere interesting. This article on kegels and squats, and what these do for your pelvic floor is a good read for anyone who has a pelvic floor (i.e. you and I). That's why I'm sharing … Continue reading Kegels, Squats, and your pelvic floor

Reading Pitstop

If I could describe my younger self in one word, it would be "bookworm". I read a lot. From fiction (Enid Blyton, anyone?) to the encyclopedia (before the age of Wikipedia), I consumed a lot of information. (Retaining that information is a whole other story.) These days, I still read a lot -- in fact, … Continue reading Reading Pitstop
