dealing with demotivation

I frequently hear is that it’s so hard to stay motivated. Perhaps the real issue is demotivation which, when left unchecked, can sabotage your healthy living plan.

are potatoes bad

One staple food that appears on most dinner plates each night is potato. Australians eat bucket loads in many various ways.  So why has the humble spud received such a bad rap of late?

Friday’s thought… If you’re struggling with motivation to get those kilos down then do what I did. I found a picture that I really liked of a slim lady in a pair of jeans and stuck my face on it. I put this on my fridge and wrote under it YOU CAN DO IT ANNETTE!!! I had 5 kilos left to get to my goal weight - and I did it and so can you. Annette 😊 ... See MoreSee Less

Thursday’s thought… What do people like Oprah Winfrey, Madonna and Jim Carrey say about the power of the mind? They will tell you “what you hold in your mind, you attract. What you hold in you mind, you become”. They believe that thoughts are magnetic. Do you want the things you constantly think about to be your reality? If the answer is 'no' it's time to change your thoughts. Annette :-) ... See MoreSee Less

Wednesday’s thought… It’s not what happens to you that matters in life, it’s how you feel about what happens to you. Every ‘disaster’ in your life is not so much a disaster, as a situation waiting for you to change your mind about it. Annette 😊 ... See MoreSee Less

Tuesday’s thought… Are you wishing your life away? Stop waiting for Friday, for summer, for someone to fall in love with you, for life to happen. Happiness is achieved when you stop waiting for it and make the most of the moment you are in right now.

Monday’s thought… On this day 20 years ago I launched my first cookbook in Queensland. I had no idea what was ahead, and as I reflect, I realise it was a life changing moment in my life. Now 20 years on book 1 is still a best seller, there are 7 cookbooks in the series, I’ve sold over 4 million cookbooks all self-published. Thank you to all my fabulous, loyal supporters who have purchased and loved book 1. It’s an amazing book filled with mouth-watering family favourite recipes. Now with the updated version launched this year book 1 is looking pretty fabulous and ready for another 20 years. Again - thank you! I couldn't have done it without your support. Annette :-) ...
