When you have fibro, the last thing you feel like doing is moving; in fact, you want to move as little as possible. Your body pretty much screams at you to stop moving when you do. However, movement is so important for recovering from fibromyalgia. Movement helps oxygenate your blood, which in turns helps the… Continue reading TOP 3 Movement Activities for Fibromyalgia
Toxin Overload Our bodies are well designed to excrete toxins that we inhale or ingest through our environment and diet. However, our lifestyles and diets commonly expose our bodies to an overload of toxins. The Christmas/New Years period is prime time for toxin overload! And we can suffer for it with symptoms of toxin overload:… Continue reading TOP 5 Tips for a DIY cleanse
I want to talk about meditation because I feel like a lot of people are turned off by the idea that they have to be able to switch off their thoughts completely, otherwise there’s no point doing it. We live in a busy, hectic world, where we never not bombarded with information, noise, and we… Continue reading What is Meditation?
About a month ago, I posted about our recent move from Townsville to Maleny. I'm not sure yet what the next step is for me, or for Ultimate You By You, but I know I was drawn to this beautiful place and community for a reason. I had a vision a couple of months ago… Continue reading If you follow your intuition, can you ever make a ‘bad’ decision?

After weeks of tearful goodbyes, excitement, anxiety, boxes & bubble wrap, doubts, nerves, certainty, and anticipation, followed by 4 days of driving, we found ourselves at our new home.… Continue reading To greener pastures….literally!
Ten days ago I hit my limit. I didn’t have any cares left. I was worn out, stressed and so tired of caring so much....about everything. I was exhausting myself caring too much about every little thing, and giving too much of my time and energy to caring for my family. So, I decided to… Continue reading Life on the Other Side experiment – Here’s what I learnt
I didn’t post this yesterday because….well, I didn’t care too! I had a nice, chilled Sunday. Only FM#4 and FM#1 were home, and even though FM#1 was feeling pretty miserable, I made a point of keeping the phone date I had booked in. I bought myself a takeaway cuppa and sat by the river. It… Continue reading Life on the Other Side experiment – Day 3
I woke up this morning with a nasty hormonal headache (you know those ones that hang around, just painful enough to be uncomfortable?) and had to skip my weekly Saturday morning yoga. FM#1 was also feeling quite hormonal and uncomfortable this morning, and was very needy & irritable. I just friggin love it when we… Continue reading Life on the Other Side experiment – Day 2
I put a load of washing on this morning. I didn’t ask anyone if they had any dirty clothes stashed under their beds/in their cupboards. Life on the other side: if it’s not in the basket it’s not getting washed! That wasn’t so hard. I decided to do a quick vacuum around the laundry downstairs,… Continue reading Life on the Other Side experiment – Day 1
