Iron Maori – Quarter Iron Man Event Recap – Run

My work sponsored the Iron Maori event in the Hawkes Bay this year and we ended up putting two teams into the event. I was asked if I wanted to do the run which I agreed to back at the start of the year, true to form I didn’t train at all for it.

The run was Quarter Marathon distance which is 10.5km and I know that I can manage a 10km without training without too many issues as I’ve done it a number of times before, although generally not in a race!

We were in Sydney for a week before the run on a short holiday (blog post to come!) so I decided to do a short run while I was there just to get the legs moving and to minimise any pain that I would feel after the Quarter Marathon as my Powerlifting Competition is today (1 week after the Iron Maori Quarter Marathon) and generally I get REALLY tight calves when I go on a long run for the first time.

Review: Horleys Sculpt Super Naturals Protein + Win a years supply!

It’s been a while since I’ve done a review and I really should get onto doing more of them as I know it’s helpful for others looking to purchase the same product! Today I have a review of the Horleys Sculpt Supernaturals Protein – Superfruits with Pomegranate. I usually go for a chocolate based protein powder so thought it would be a nice change to go for a fruity one instead.

The No Fuss Way to Feed a Crowd! [Win $95 of Serveware]

The weather is slowly but surely starting to heat up and we’re getting a glimpse of those long hot summer days which are upon us. Long hot summer days spent with your family and friends is always the best part about summer rolling around.

The struggle with these long hot summer days is how to feed a crowd without getting stressed out?! I don’t know about you but I don’t want to be slaving over a stove and getting my kitchen super hot in the middle of summer. Sometimes you also don’t feel like eating a full hot meal like you would in winter.

The answer?? PLATTERS!


The no fuss way to feed a crowd, with out the stress! Platters


Skinny Lemon Chicken [Takeaway Alternative]

Sometimes you just really feel like takeaways, but you know that you would be better off to make them yourself. This is where my Skinny Lemon Chicken recipes comes in, it’s a great alternative to takeaway lemon chicken you can get but has all the great flavours of take out.

I realised that I don’t post many savoury dishes on the blog (mostly because I have a huge sweet tooth, and because our savoury meals are largely, meat & vege and don’t require any real recipe).  I thought this Skinny Lemon Chicken Recipe would be a welcome addition to the recipe archives for those of you who are more into savoury dishes and feel like lemon chicken but want a better for you version than the takeaway stores.

15 Minute Booty Blasting Workout [Win a $50 Rebel Sport Voucher for you & a friend!]

I’ve been trying to post more workouts on the blog, especially ones which you can do at home without any equipment. With summer well on its way I thought it would be a great time to put together a quick Booty Blasting workout to get your bum ready for the Bikini weather! [Read to the end to see how you can be in to win a $50 Rebel Sport Voucher for you & a friend!]

The only thing you will need for this workout is yourself, a mat or towel to perform the exercises on and an interval timer app on your smart phone. If you don’t have a smart phone just keep an eye on a clock which has a second-hand on it.

We are going to be completing this 15 Minute Booty Blasting Workout in a Tabata format. A Tabata is simply four minutes of exercise broken down into 8 segments of 20 seconds each. You work for 20 seconds then rest for 10 seconds and then work for another 20 seconds on a second exercise and then have another 10 seconds rest and repeat this cycle until you have completed a total of 8 work sections or a total of each exercise completed four times.
