The Balancing Act of Motherhood

Thursday, November 30, 2017 | By Annette Shepherd
Something I wrote late last night while I waited for my brain to unwind after an incredible day.....Our boy turned one last week and today we finished attending the last of five x 5 day seminars this year with Kai in tow. What a year of challenge and change it’s been! When I fell pregnant I had so many people tell me that I was going to find a whole new meaning to what feelin ..

How to Gain the Right Perspective of Your Health & Fitness Journey

Friday, October 06, 2017 | By Annette Shepherd
In 2013 we got some clients together and trekked along razorback ridge. The journey was the perfect analogy to the journey we embark on when setting ourselves great big health and fitness goals. Sometimes the goals we set for ourselves can seem quite overwhelming however once you start on that journey, the path there isn't as difficult as it once seemed, and with the right support around y ..

Your Voids In Life Dictate Your Values

Friday, October 06, 2017 | By Annette Shepherd
For those who are familiar with my blogs, it comes as no surprise that birthdays were a sore point for me once upon a time. I hated them for a few reasons. 1. I grew up not celebrating them, which made me feel like I didn't matter much. 2. I hated getting older. 3. I hated the reminder that another year had gone by and I was still not enjoying my life. Everythi ..

I lost 12.5 kilos in 12 weeks!

Tuesday, August 29, 2017 | By Annette Shepherd
Before joining Assist PT I was heading down a path where I felt I was losing control of my eating habits. I was eating the wrong foods multiple times a day in large quantities. My weight began to increase, my clothes were getting tighter and in less than a year I had gained 14kg. Looking at a photo of myself from November 2016 was my breaking point. I was ashamed of what I had  ..

What the Health?! Vegans, meat eaters, who's right, who's wrong?

Saturday, August 26, 2017 | By Annette Shepherd
The plant based diet movement has become increasingly popular over the past few years and rightly so with the amount of disease we're at risk of and the amount of dangerous foods we are consuming. In between it all, fingers everywhere are pointing toward one way over another, all claiming their way is the healthiest way to eat. What the Health is a documentary doing the rounds at th ..

How Gratitude Changed My Life

Sunday, July 30, 2017 | By Annette Shepherd
For me, gratitude began as a practice that looked for all the things in life that made me feel happy, supported, appreciative or loved. Anything that served a purpose to make my life better. In 2012 I found myself at a two day workshop that had me working on some really deep troublesome times in my life that lead me down the path of self pity, sorrow and abusive behaviours. I look ..

Is food your medicine or your poison?

Wednesday, July 19, 2017 | By Annette Shepherd
Have you ever watched a loved ones health deteriorate? If it were within your means to give them more days in better health, would you do whatever was within your power to make that happen? What about yourself? What if you could look after yourself better now so that you could spend more of your days with the loved ones that still surround you? To watch your kids grow up and watch  ..
