Talk: It’s Important in Your Relationship

Talk: It’s important in your relationship

Talk is important

My other half and I have been lacking a bit in the sack recently. We were trying to figure out why. He’d been doing some research on the matter because it  became a problem for us. He suggested we talk candidly. Since it was only me that wasn’t getting my fill I thought it originally was his technique. He came up with a few ideas to spice it up one of them being an open relationship, or becoming swingers, the other was getting a third-party in who can show him a thing or two.

Cheap Healthy Eats

Cheap and Healthy Eats
Cheap Healthy eats

Cheap and healthy don’t often fall in the same sentence.

Many people believe it isn’t possible to achieve cheap healthy eats, but it’s all about shopping smart.

I’m lucky, I live in a semi-rural suburb on the outskirts of the metro area, we have little growers markets popping up everywhere. This is where you get the cheap healthy foods, growers markets and farmers markets, not your local supermarket. The local supermarket wants to make the biggest profit possible. They buy the cheapest product available (and rip the farmers off in the meantime) and then charge you at least one and a half times cost price to take it off their shelves, and we are happy to pay for it. Why? Because it’s convenient. Continue reading “Cheap Healthy Eats”

How Can you Overcome Low Self Esteem

How Can you Overcome Low Self Esteem

Hey there, Ali here

I refer back to a conversation I had this morning with a friend of mine, she’s going to send her step son back to his birth mother and family because they say they have a job for him. It was one of the most difficult decisions she could ever make, but her step son has been out of school for about a year and has been actively seeking work with no hits, so when she found out there was a job available for him on the other side of the country, she was inclined to send him there so he could start making his own way.

She’s always had to make the hard decisions, has always believed that she is not raising children but raising “new adults” her hubby is not very good at making any of the hard decisions, so she’s constantly the bad guy. She cares maybe a little too much about what everyone else thinks of her, and has always tried to please everyone. She knows that her step sons birth mum will take credit for everything wanted about her son, and will blame my friend on everything unwanted. Continue reading “How Can you Overcome Low Self Esteem”

Horrifyingly High Levels of Glyphosate in Processed Foods

So for those who don’t know Glyphosate  is Roundup, and has been proven harmful to humans at levels as small as 0.01ppb (parts per billion). I have to admit I’ve linked you to a long report, and since many of us don’t have the time to read the whole thing I will summarise it for you:

Hidden Toxins

Hidden Toxins
Hidden Toxins

Hi everyone Ali here,
I have just recently come across a huge amount of information that is scaring the crap out of me, so I feel the need to share it and let you and yours know about it too.

Did you know that there are over 3000 ingredients used in personal care products, cleaning products, supplements and bathroom products that are Toxic. These hidden toxins can cause skin and eye irritation, cell mutation (also known as cancer), inflammation, liver damage, kidney damage etc. And you know what’s worse? They don’t even tell us about it. Have a look at your personal care and skin care products, do you see parabens? sodium laurel sulfates? Do you even know what they are? I didn’t. Can you pronounce the ingredients on the label? I dare you to Google half of those ingredients. Do yourself and your family a favour and use this amazing wealth of information called the internet and educate yourself on the products you are putting on your skin, and on your child’s skin. The bubble baths you use, the shampoos you use, the body washes you use. I was horrified. I’m now looking for a product I can use that has very little, if any toxins in it. As my mentor Isabel De Los Rios (creator of Beyond Diet) says if you can’t pronounce it don’t use it. Lets look at an example Continue reading “Hidden Toxins”

Lifestyle: An Average day

Lifestyle: An average day
Lifestyle: An average day

Hi there Ali here,
So I woke up this morning at 5am so I can say goodbye to my other half and let all the animals in. and out, and then I go back to bed to sleep for an hour. I’m not sure why I always do this, but that’s what I do. So I’m up again at 6am, my Dog is jumping all over me now trying to get me up, my cats are all complaining because they want to get fed.

I get up to feed my animals, feed the fish and then have my shower. After my shower, I get my breakfast ready, and while I’m eating breakfast, the meat portion I’ll be eating for lunch is happily cooking away in the frying pan on low heat. After breakfast I check my meat, prepare the salad I’ll be eating with it, check it again, bang it all in a container including my snacks (which usually consists of an apple, a Muesli bar and some nuts) and I prepare my coffee.

While drinking my coffee I’ve put the dog outside, locked all the doors, and packed my gym stuff so I’m ready to walk out the door by 7.20am at the latest. At which time I’ll message my friend to find out how she’s doing. Continue reading “Lifestyle: An Average day”
