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?
B Vitamins are a group of 8 vitamins (the B-complex vitamins) which are very important for a healthy metabolism: B1 (thiamine)B2 (riboflavin)B3 (niacin)B5 (pantothenic acid)B6 (pyridoxine)B7 (biotin)B9 (folate)B12 (cobalamin). “So what exactly is metabolism?” I hear you ask. Great question! Our metabolism is, in a nutshell, all of the chemical processes and reactions that happen… Continue reading What are the B Vitamins?
My girls and I have recently relocated from Townsville to the gorgeous, rolling green hills of Maleny, in the stunning Sunshine Coast Hinterland, South East Queensland. 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!
It just feels right... Everyday, all day long, we make decisions - logical, calculated, evidence-based, life-sustaining...intuitive. Intuitive decisions are those ones that just "pop up" without a lot of pondering, facts or figures. Unexplainable. Not needing justification. They just are. They just feel right somehow. These are the decisions that come from our intuition, our… Continue reading Intuitive decisions – if it feels right, it is
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
Have you ever gotten to the point of just not caring anymore? You just can’t find a shit to give and you can’t be bothered searching for one anymore? I think I’m there. Not like in a depressed, life sucks, I give up kind of way. Just in the why should I bother way. I… Continue reading Life on the Other Side: A stressed, worn-out mum’s experiment in not caring
Quitting sugar was a real turning point in my recovery from fibromyalgia. Through my quest to find ways to treat my symptoms without medication, I found many articles suggesting a link between a diet high in sugar and chronic inflammation throughout the body. I read that sugar can cause symptoms of chronic inflammation in the… Continue reading Sugar & fibromyalgia – a really painful combo
