Practical Tips for Soon-to-be Mums

2017-08-07T10:19:52+00:00 7 August 2017|Categories: LIVE|Tags: , |

This post basically contains everything I would tell myself if I could go back in time to when I was pregnant. With all things baby and parenting we all choose to do things differently due to the way we were brought up, our values and what we prioritise. With this in mind you may not agree with all my tips which is absolutely fine. However I hope some may be useful for soon-to-be mums and you can learn from

Hi Guys!

I thought I would share my current daily routine with you all. I’m a huge organisational lover. I have lists, systems, charts, planners and rosters for everything in my life. It’s very important to me so I can get everything I want to do in my life fitted in. ‘Create a life you love’ is one of my favourite sayings. I believe you

Some may be judgemental towards a Christian woman pursuing fitness, saying it’s selfish, superficial or not important. However I disagree and here’s why. In the same way that it’s ok for a Christian to want to make their house look stylish, make their garden beautiful, keep their car clean and in good condition or wear makeup and colour their hair, I believe it is ok for a Christian woman to want to look good in their swimsuit. The only two reasons I think there is a problem is if your motives

Well, my little girl is now two months old so I thought it would be a nice time to reflect on my birth experience and write it down so I can look  back on it in the future. I personally love reading people’s birth stories, so I hope some of you do, too! If not, feel free to skip this post as it’s a small deviation from my usual focus on wellbeing and fitness.

Hi everyone!

It’s less than three weeks until my due date! Eek very exciting times! I can’t wait to hold my baby. I can’t wait to dress my baby in all the cute tiny clothes I have for it! I can’t wait to find out if it’s a boy or a girl. I can’t wait to go for walks with the pram. And I can’t wait to not be pregnant anymore. But first, I have to get through labour. After reading extensively about all the side effects

my vision board

A vision board is a visual representation of what you’re aiming for in life. Your goals, your dreams, who you want to be, what you want to have, what you’re working towards and what sort of life you want to live. I really enjoy how taking the time to make a vision board gives you an opportunity to think deeply about these things. You can reflect on if how you’re living your life is heading you in the direction you want to be going.

For a very simple vision board, you could

My Second Trimester of Pregnancy

Well, this week is the fourth week of my third trimester! Exciting times! So, I thought I would write a reflection of my experience going through my second trimester of pregnancy, that is, weeks 13 to 27 – the longest trimester of the three. Some changes and occurrences were expected and some were not! Pregnancy really is so different for every single woman and every single baby.

The first trimester morning sickness may not stop immediately

I threw up a few times in the early weeks of my second trimester. It was interesting because

Non toxic cookware

 

Over the last couple of years, I’ve become aware of the negative affects of using toxic cookware. Unfortunately, a lot of the cookware given to me for my wedding four years ago was toxic, so I’ve slowly been replacing one thing at a time as it wears out. I’ve been researching the different types of non-toxic cookware, so  I though I would share about it all in a post to hopefully to help people who, like me, are hoping to replace their toxic cookware.
