Lessons learnt weeding...

A huge storm came through late on Christmas day and gave my garden a really good soak. The next morning, I took the opportunity to mulch the fig tree and pull some weeds. It was great! The soaking meant that the ground was really soft and the weeds come out effortlessly.

The following morning, I was out in the garden again. Putting on my garden gloves, I was thinking about how appropriate it is to be weeding at this time of the year, clearing out the old just before the New Year.

Where are the strong feminine women?

In little while ago, I wrote a post about who you hang out with.  I also speak a fair bit about the importance of modelling.

With that in mind and the dream to become ever increasingly successful, I've been looking out for models to take me to that next level. Not that I have anything against men. I am used to male role models for success. This time, I specifically wanted to look for a female role model.

Muscles and a waist!

Having gone from weakling to an ordinary girl, I decided a few months ago that I could lose some weight. I started thinking what that might look like, to understand what my goal was.

It was then that I came across an article from Men's Fitness about this guy from the UK Glenn Parker. On the cover, was this guy that looked incredibly fit - he had the 6 pack and muscles in all the right places. Also on the cover was a little picture supposedly of the same guy. He looked like an ordinary guy with a beer belly. Apparently he went from that to cover material in 15 weeks. I could hardly believe it. I had to read the article. I wanted to know how he did it.
