Arnold Classic Vlog / Bikini Comp / Meeting Buff Bunny

Melbourne has come through with some glorious sunny weather for The Arnold Classic this year. The Arnold Classic is the world’s largest annual multi-sport expo, held in Melbourne from the 17th – 19th of March this year. 

My fiance, Tarren and I headed to the Exhibition Centre on Friday. Where we enjoyed live sports, health and fitness workshops and meeting some of our favourite athletes.

We filmed traveling to and from the expo and what to expect once you get inside. I also included a sneaky gym workout at the end of the vlog, you can check it out below!

I met one of my fitness inspirations and favourite YouTubers, Heidi Sommers aka Buff Bunny. I brought her a converse keyring as a little joke and she thought it was hilarious, calling it “Heidi size”. Heidi was incredibly kind and gave us a lot of her time.

Healthy Glowing Skin Smoothie

I’m not sure if it’s just me but 2017 has brought nothing but dull and blemished skin so far. I decided to start trading in my afternoon coffees for this healthy glowing skin smoothie, with noticeable results. 

I’ve been doing research into which foods can help improve my skin. A lot of obvious things came up like salmon, broccoli, and almonds. I also stumbled upon a whole list of foods I already enjoy that I used to create a delicious and creamy green smoothie!

Frozen banana and avocado give the smoothie an incredibly thick and creamy taste. The mango and pineapple sweeten things up and the greens pack one huge nutritional punch. Your skin will be thanking you for this one.

5 Diet Mistakes To Avoid

From yo-yo dieting to new years resolutions that only last a couple of weeks. We’ve all been there, trying to lose weight and get fit. 

I hate the word diet, it implies that you’ll do it for a couple of months, get sick of it and then go back to bad habits. You shouldn’t think of it as dieting but changing your way you thinking, to achieve a healthier lifestyle.

There may be a number of reasons why you just can’t seem to drop the weight, but here are 5 diet mistakes that I try to avoid.

5 Benefits of a Juice Cleanse

How many times have you been tempted to buy one of those ‘detox’ cleanses that promote weight loss, a colon cleanse etc? 

With promises of ‘weight loss’ or ‘great skin’, I know I’ve been tempted. However, if you do some research, you’ll find that they are simply not worth your moolah. They can also be super unhealthy and aren’t a substitute for a well-balanced diet and active lifestyle.

Nonetheless, a short fast/cleanse can be a great way to give your body a rest. It can aid in breaking a cycle of dependence on saturated fats, refined carbohydrates, processed foods, excess caffeine, and alcohol.
