100 Everyday Adventures

I have decided that 2014 is going to be an amazing year, so I bought Leonie Dawson’s Create Your Amazing Year Life and Biz workbook to help me create it.

Out of the workbook, I bring you:

100 Everyday Adventures!

or, things I’m going to do this year.



1. Create a foundation of physical health to build my life upon as my number one priority.

Enter #projectMILF! You may have heard me say that pregnancy was pretty tough on my body (and soul). I had hip issues that meant I couldn’t exercise for most of the pregnancy, and I ate a LOT of chocolate and ice cream. Like, a lot. So number one, I want to move my bod, and eat things that support both my health and my happiness!

2. Quit sugar for 6 months – fruit only from 1 Jan – 30 June

Wellllll, January didn’t go so well with this one, as I found that eating fruit kept derailing me. So I went sugar free for FebFast! No fruit, no sugar, no sweeteners. So a month late but so far huge success!

3. Consistently do my CHEK training.

My Personal Trainer is rad, and she’s a CHEK therapist. Watch this space for #projectMILF pics, I’ve been moving my buns a lot!


4. Have a dentist appointment

Most people probably don’t think they need this on their annual To-Do list, but… I haven’t been to the dentist in 5 years. Eeeeek!! I hope the oil pulling has helped, or things could get nasty in the chair.

5. Get my moles checked.

I live in a sunny country, people!

6. Make and eat bone broth

7. Make and eat saurkraut

8. Have a physio appointment in January

Done! This was to check my hip post-pregnancy and birth, and the good news is I’m doing well!

9. Fix my bike tyres and go for bike rides

10. Do some post-natal mums and bubs yoga

11. Swim in the ocean regularly during summer

12. Go for regular beach and bush walks

13. Drink green smoothies again

15. Focus on my relationship with my mum

If you’re interested in meditation, check out the Chopra Centre’s free programs. I use them all the time.

The husbandito didn’t know this was on my list, and sent me a train-to-be-a-laughing-yoga teacher thing. A sign from the universe, perhaps?

    …..not that the big dude isn’t a cutie too. But he can’t compete with the little guy.
