This blog is all about my personal health and fitness journey. I am a qualified personal trainer and run my own Online Personal Training Business - GET ACTIVE ONLINE. I love helping others reach their goals and just feel better about themselves! Last year I competed in the Sports Model Division at the INBA All Female Classic and had a great time and might just do it again! But more on that later.... for now I just love rambling on about the daily adventures of Life!!!!

Oh my god I'm sooo hungry! I keep telling myself only 12 days to go, don't lose it now! It's funny how some days you just breeze through and others are a constant struggle. I'm sitting here just counting down the time until I can go to bed so I don't have to fight the urge to eat something I'm not suppose to.

I've done a bit extra training today, so that is most probably why I'm so hungry!!!!!! Geez I can't wait to have some energy and more food again. Anyway only 12 short days and it will all be worth it!

Today I've been planning all my catch up dates when I go to Adelaide after the All Female Classic. All my family and close friends are in Adelaide and I can't wait to catch up with them all, and I'll actually be able to have a glass of wine. I've learnt from past visits that it's best to organise it all before I go or I never have enough time to see everyone I want to. So it's looking like all my days are full and I should have a great week, as long as it's not too cold!

Anyway not much else happening with me, just trying to train as much as I can and keep my head out of the fridge.

See you all soon, Hilds

Pushing Through......

Geez I've been a slack bogger this year! I've been loving reading every one's but when it comes to posting I have so much to say coz I've left it too long that it all seems to hard!!!!

Anyway 2 weeks to go and I'm counting those days!!!!! Had a fabulous weekend last weekend with the amazing Di. God that girl is an inspiration, she is so motivated but most of all so giving! Gerard is one lucky man, I kinda felt guilty going home to my poor neglected Cam who tends to fend for himself, especially at the moment with the little energy I have it doesn't necessarily get spent on him. Oh well not long to go and life should be little more normal.

So after my weekend away I was feeling so motivated and super excited about the show. I just want it to be here now and my biggest goal is to have "FUN" with it. It is going to be a great amazing opportunity to meet so many amazing people, I'll apologize in in advance if I forget names (a really bad trait of mine), please don't take it personally, I'm just really bad with names! (will work on it!).

Feeling a bit run down at the moment, got back from my weekend away with the razor blades in my throat, which is always a sure sign of a cold to come. Have managed not to get too sick, but haven't been feeling great. Especially since I picked up another trip which saw me fly out Tuesday night, fly around the country and get back late last night feeling very very average! Too many early starts, not enough sleep and no cooked food! Anyway I'm back at home and managed a spin class this morning, maybe shouldn't have been there but this close to comp I couldn't bear the thought of not training! Also I checked my weight this morning and no movement, although cm's are still coming down nicely. Wasn't expecting much weight movement this week as I had a massive drop last week although was still secretly hoping!

Anyway better keep moving, need some food for the fridge and it's house cleaning day today! (oh joy).

14 DAYS TO GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So much going on!

It seems that when things happen they tend to happen all at once. I can't believe it's only Tuesday and we have had so much exciting news already!
Can't reveal all just yet but things are finally looking really positive!

So less than 4 weeks to go until Comp time, I'm starting to count down the days now. I'm very excited about it all and also looking forward to getting my life back. At the moment I seem to live in sweaty gym clothes, constantly preparing food and generally just thinking about comp. This weekend I'm off to see the fabulous Di! I can't wait to get some tips from the pro, as I need as much help as possible getting my confidence up on stage! So with everything about comp at the moment it hasn't left time for my new business venture!

For a while now I've been in the process of setting up Cam's and my own online personal training site & yes it's finally up and running! Check it out , obviously it's a work in progress but it's so exciting to be finally following my dream. I can't wait to help others reach their health and fitness goals and generally just feel better about themselves. So I've got 6 weeks off from Flying and I will be busy getting things off the ground!

Anyway time to get these sweaty gym clothes off, just finished my spin class and geez I'm feeling it today! (might need a nana nap before my arvo cardio sessions).

Keep Smiling everyone!

I'm doing it!

Well no point avoiding it any longer, for a while now I've been training my ass off and eating well in the hope of making it to the INBA All Female show in July! Today it's officially 1 month out and as freaked out as I am there is NO WAY I'm not making it to that stage in July!

I've had the help of gorgeous Di from Fabulous figures getting me prepared (& just listening to all my whinging along the way!). I have decided to give the Sports Model Division a go!

At the moment I have the constant mind games going on, one day I'm feeling great and can see myself making it and the next I can't imagine how this huge ass of mine is ever going to shrink enough for me to feel good about getting on stage. For me I just really want to do this to prove to me that I can! It scares the hell out of me and the thought of standing on stage freaks me out (I'm nervous just thinking about it now!), but for some bizarre reason I really really want to do this!

So 1 month to go! I've got one more trip to Japan to survive tomorrow and then I have a few weeks at home to burn some serious fat! I've done a few overseas trips lately and I'm really struggling with the lack of sleep. Yesterday I got back from Japan, had two hours sleep and felt like crap all day! Anyway only 1 more to go and then there are no excuses for not being 110% with my nutrition and training!

Today I've managed to get my weights out of the way nice and early and backed it up with an RPM class. Geez I burned some calories this morning! I've got a big run to go this arvo and I'm all done for another day, one day at a time!

Anyway time for a coffee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
