It’s that time of year again, with the new year now in full swing, those new year’s resolutions are already beginning to crumble. To help inspire you to keep your 2016 health goals, here are five of my favourite lady health and wellness bloggers from down under.
Sarah Wilson, I Quit Sugar
I’ve got to kick off with the increasingly world famous Sarah Wilson, as her I Quit Sugar movement is what triggered me to think more deeply about my own health. The I Quit Sugar blog is a great source of fructose free recipe ideas and health facts explained.
Martyna Angall, The Wholesome Cook
What I like about Martyna’s approach is her focus on individuality. Everyone is different, what works for me may not necessarily work for you. I also like her 90/10 rule, aim to eat healthily 90%, not 100%, of the time. Though I think that perhaps my diet is more towards 80/20. I thoroughly believe that socialising and pleasure are also important for wellbeing. Yes, I try to stick to healthy eating during the week, but I won’t duck out of a pizza and a beer on a Thursday night if I fancy it, especially if it follows a long run.
Sally, The Fit Foodie
Sally is a fellow UK expat moved to Sydney. Her own transformation to a healthy lifestyle was a definite inspiration for me. A believer in incorporating delicious treats into your diet, her blog is full of healthier versions of the deserts we all love.
Lauren Glucina, Ascension Kitchen
Lauren’s philosophy is grounded in finding balance. Though I do admit that to be fully on board with some of her thinking I’d need to read up on the science, a lot of what Lauren says makes sense and has worked for me personally. Her view that stress is at the route of most complaints, especially digestive complaints, is an opinion that I wholeheartedly agree with as I have experienced these effects personally.
What I really like about Jessica’s approach is that it focuses on lifestyle, and not just diet. Her advice covers sleep, stress, exercise, relationships, and work environments. She also encourages her readers and clients to be gentle on their bodies – to exercise less but smarter. This is something I also go by. Yes, I do exercise most days, but I don’t push myself to the limit as I just don’t enjoy that. Don’t get me wrong, a lot of people say a lot of good things about intense training regimes such as HIIT, but it just doesn’t work for me personally.
I hope you find some inspiration in the blogs and recipes from these lovely ladies. Here’s to a happy, healthy 2016!
