Life is Just One Big Party!

Most people I know will agree with me that certain places give off vibes.

Walk into an upbeat, happy party and it’s infectious. Walk into a couple arguing and it’s downright depressing.

You know what I mean right?

I believe that within ourselves we also create a vibe. In the past my internal vibe was one of tension, hate and judgement. I didn’t like me, and I was not having a good time. If my internal vibe were a party, it would be LAME.

But if the party (life) is happening regardless, what point is there in having a shit party? Like, if I’m going to be partying it up for another 70 years, I’m going to want one happy, exciting and enjoyable party. Otherwise, that’s gonna be a long 70 years. If I’m having a good party, others are going to want to share it with me! But if my party is a drag, it’s going to get worse when no one wants to join in.

Your life is a party. Make it a kickass one that everyone wants to be at!

How Often Should I Weight Myself? Never.

If you are following Wellness Mission on Facebook (and I hope you are!) you may have seen my post a few weeks back about banishing the scales in 2014. It’s been two weeks since I have weighed myself, and it’s been an interesting journey to date.

Am I good enough? I need to know scales, tell me!

Banishing the scales was a challenge for me to stop judging my health on the whim of some external force (which, as you know, is fickle at best Continue reading

Tangy Gorgeous Juice to Beat the Heat!

Happy New Year!

Wow, has it been hot here in Brisbane. Temperatures hit 40°C yesterday and continue to remain hot until Tuesday, and today the city is blanketed in a thick smoke from the bush fires on nearby beautiful North Stradbroke Island. With no air conditioning in my house or car, it seemed like all weekend life circled around staying hydrated and sitting very very still. It was definitely a weekend for relaxation! Continue reading

Your Very Own Delicious AND Nutritious Breakfast

muesli1We often put a lot of time and energy into our dinners and lunches, but somehow the first thing we eat everyday is often the least acknowledged. I know for me this is because I am usually half asleep while eating and I have the same thing everyday so it’s nothing to get excited about.

Really, when I think about it, breakfast is the one consistent meal of the day that I see 100% as fuel and this is because Continue reading

Reflections On My First Three Day Juice Cleanse

Early last week the sun really started to shine and I suddenly became aware that winter was well and truly over. I decided I needed to do something to mark the end of hibernation and in true spring fashion I decided to do a cleanse.juices

In 2012 I did my first cleanse, Dr Alejando Jungers Clean Cleanse for 2 weeks (which involved 1 solid meal and 2 liquid meals a day plus a host of supplements). In the end I found it a bit overwhelming and this took away from the psychological benefits, but thats mostly to do with how I approached it and the fact that I tried my first cleanse for 2 weeks! Don’t get me wrong, I felt physically amazing at times, but as my main goal was to lose weight I tried to only have juices (not smoothies or soups) it just left me starving, especially after 14 days. Lesson learned there: starving yourself isn’t fun (duhh). Continue reading

Easy Quinoa and Kidney Bean Patties

IMG_4720Hello there!

I’ve officially fallen below my 1 post a week goal for the first time, shame on me! It’s been a bit of a hectic start to September but I’ve still got loads of posts I want to share so don’t lose faith in me yet 🙂

It can be hard to always keep on top of the things we know we ought to do when times get crazy. When it gets busy it becomes easier to fall out of active stress management mode (exercise, personal time, etc) an into passive stress relief mode (e.g. zone out on couch, indulge, etc). Continue reading
