Why I probably won’t be going back to CrossFit…at least not in South Africa

Integrity. It’s one of the first things that people mentioned when I first heard about CrossFit almost six years ago. A sport where you’re given crazy workouts, where regardless of how long it takes you to finish the wod (workout of the day) your pride is in the honest effort you gave. I drank the… Continue reading Why I probably won’t be going back to CrossFit…at least not in South Africa

Fitness Reads: Jog On by Bella Mackie

I picked up this book on Sunday, the day of my flight back to South Africa after spending a glorious two weeks with my very yummy husband, look at him, he's gorgeous. No matter how many sleeping tablets I take (don't take more than the recommended dosage), I never seem to fall asleep on the… Continue reading Fitness Reads: Jog On by Bella Mackie

Pregnant or Fat?

I’m going through a crappy period with my weight and it’s hard not to get down on myself, especially when everyone keeps asking if I’m pregnant 🤰🏽 I’m not, I’ve just gained weight. I’m on a solid reset plan that involves zero sugar and mostly veg. So far so good, BUT it’s tough. I looked… Continue reading Pregnant or Fat?

When Everything Looks Okay, But Isn’t

My prayer for you today and for your 2017 is that God would pull you closer into Him, no matter what you have been through, I pray that He would restore joy, internal and external peace, as well as… Continue reading When Everything Looks Okay, But Isn’t

So You Ran a Marathon, Now What?

The last four weeks of marathon training were hard...one might say non-existent 😂 My knee was behaving like a juvenile delinquent, the kind that needs to be locked up and never let out. I could barely walk without feeling pain in each step. I went to a few physio sessions, 1 week out mind you… Continue reading So You Ran a Marathon, Now What?

3 Things I’m Loving About CrossFit

After having been sick for what feels like a century, I finally got better enough to resume training. The first workout back, a modified yet still very spicy 8 on the CrossFit Richter scale, of an ascending triplet of snatches, box handstand push-ups, and ball slams was an assault to my still recovering lungs. The… Continue reading 3 Things I’m Loving About CrossFit

Get to Know Me Tag

Inspired by Sharon of In the thick of it, I was inspired to do the 'get to know me' tag. This tag is probably one of the most popular ones on blogs/vlogs. The first one I did is a very cringe-worthy video on YouTube back in the days when I was a dedicated vlogger...one of… Continue reading Get to Know Me Tag

In review: intermittent fasting

It seems as  though there's a new diet almost every single day. If you’re a 90s baby you’ll remember the Atkins diet, the South Beach diet, the Blood-Type diet, the Zone diet, the list is endless. One of the reasons why I’ve never stuck to any of these diets is because I don’t like being… Continue reading In review: intermittent fasting

The Struggle Is Real…Isn’t It Always?

Knowing things will go wrong is what keeps most people on the sidelines. Most people seek to avoid the struggle. But we are not most people. When the fists fly, we charge headlong into the fray. Because we saw the struggle coming. Because we want what’s on the other side more than we want to… Continue reading The Struggle Is Real…Isn’t It Always?

Arms like aunty a.k.a black, female & strong

Aunty* just turned 60… Simmer on that. Yes, my eyes popped out too! I was about six months late on watching Black Panther. While I understood the cultural significance of Black Panther, I am not one of those people who will rush to the cinema for new releases. When I finally watched it, I left… Continue reading Arms like aunty a.k.a black, female & strong
