Understanding the Gap Between Fit & Healthy

There was a time in my life where I used to have a cigarette before going on a 3km morning jog because I felt like it opened up my lungs and made me breath easier. I especially loved my post run smoke because it felt like the hit of nicotine was stronger when I was out of breath. 

I was fit. Fitter than most of the people I knew at the time but was I healthy? Most definitely NOT.  

Nikki has chosen to share both her and her brothers stories about their relationships with health and fitness.  So many people say these words together like they are one and the same. They are NOT.

Natural Sun Safety Tips – Get Ready to Get Back Out in the Sun

Natural sun safety tips

I learnt how to care for my skin from my Grandma. She is a very lily white skinned English woman who came to Australia when she was about 10 years old. She prided herself on her beautiful soft white skin. Grandma grew up and spent most of her adult life in far north Queensland either on the coast or out in the dessert. She loved the outdoors (she is too old now to get out). She had a beautiful big flower garden that she tended nearly every day to grow flowers for her church. So she was out in the harsh hot sun most days.
She never used commercial sunscreens. Find out why.

How Juice Fasting Can Help You Lose Weight Permanently

Do you want to know how a cold pressed juice fast can help you lose weight permanently?

I watched a You Tube video on someone who claimed to be doing a 5 day juice cleanse to test out what it would feel like and review it on her You Tube channel. I was left feeling totally frustrated because the You Tuber didn’t even make it through one day of the cleanse, then she proceeded to bag the shit out of juice cleansing as a “Fad” diet that is dangerous and just should not be done. The worst thing about this is that anyone with questions about the validity of juice fasting to lose weight is being misdirected and misinformed by someone who is totally clueless.
