MEAL PLANS TO REACH YOUR GOALS

Meal 1 - Wholegrain Oats, Eggs, Cinnamon, Blueberries Meal 2 - Tuna, Potato, Greens Meal 3 - Chicken Wrap, Mixed Colourful Salad Meal 4 - Almonds, Apple, Shake Meal 5 - Big Cheesy Pizza If I wrote I had the above and said ‘this is what I eat’ – who out there would question me on it? Ask for my quantities and why I eat certain things? Follow what I wrote to a tee for days and weeks on end? Never faulting from it and even if you did follow - what would be the end result? I’ve seen it before. The questions start to follow,  asking everything from ‘how many eggs’, ‘how do you cook that’; to ‘do you train before meal 1 or after’ and ‘what kind of cheese on your pizza?’ Well this is NOT my meal plan. As I don’t know you personally and I didn’t write it for you (sorry, did I get your attention though...), so unfortunetly I have no idea if it will help you or harm you.   If I happen to be asked for ...

THE OFFICE VS ABS

Three weeks until the ANB Asia Pacs and I'm sure I should be writing all about my training and that I'm eating this many grams of chicken. I'll get there, but that stuff really makes me cringe as you can just get a tailor plan written for YOU and YOUR goals (I'll write about this soon no doubt...) TODAY is Cupcake Day at work today! No doubt there are others out there that are enjoying pushing papers for some dollars and are surrounded by the normallities of working in a corporate environment. High stress, tiredness, headaches all seem to be the norm.  Here are a few general SURVIVAL TIPS regarding food for those office girls out there (or suited up gentlemen) - written by me on a whim to keep me entertained while the MasterChef like challenges are going on: Main events: If gatherings are a once a year event or there are birthday morning teas once a month– why hold back? Unless you have a major issue with food, be that intolerances, allergies, or can’t stop once you star ...

MIXING IT UP WITH THE RIGHT PEOPLE

Being able to spend the last few weeks with girls competing this year and hanging out with others close to me that are setting personal goals for the future, it’s no bigger time to see that the people you surround yourself with have massive effect on how you feel about doing what you do. The Living Beauty team, past, present and potential are such an amazing group, each with their own stories that I feel privelged to witness and even be apart of their goal smashing! Even if we may dismiss the passing comments of people, some words get to us. We may start to question ourselves, our goals, our training, the food we are eating even if we are doing everything 100%.  It’s hard enough dealing with our own self talk, then the passing feedback of others as well. Strong minds become stronger with the right support. If you feel like you are mentally going over and over the opinions of others in your head, it’s time to reach out to a trusted source. They do not need to be a relative or a ...

GEMMA DAWSON WELCOMES YOU TO HER BLOG

 

Competition Journey 2012
 
They say first impressions last. They take a second to make and a lifetime to unravel.
 
This is my first impression to introduce myself. For you to either connect or disconnect. I can not use my big smile, my inner confidence, or my dress to impress you, I just have my words and a honesty behind what I write.
 
You are reading this because you maybe know me, you may just love fitness or you stubbled across this when goggling 'tanned up bikini ninjas'. However you got here, I will use this opportunity to introduce myself in my first entry and only scratch the surface of what I may bring.
