Kate. Melbourne, Australia.

Welcome to my health blog. I have a love for health, wellness, fitness, food and people. I enjoy coffee, a lot. I also have a pet cat named Tipsy. Since starting my journey I have lost at least 10 kgs the healthy way. Jnr Ambassador for Artist's for Orphan's non-profit organisation.

Yay we did it! National Finalists for Miss Humanity Australia - Here I am standing with the very beautiful Miss Humanity Australia 2013 Ashleigh Wheeldon, Monica and Zoey after we were presented with our National Finalist sashes!

Banana cherry maca Icecream topped with banana, cherries, coconut, gojis and a bit of homemade apple cinnamon rawnola. Haven’t had this is a very long time. Just because I’ve upped my fats doesn’t mean I can’t enjoy my favorite meal anymore. #plantbased #vegan #whatveganseat

Develop a healthy relationship with food. If you’re hungry, eat. If you’re full, don’t eat. Eat vegetables to be good to your body, but eat ice cream to be good to your soul.

Take pictures of yourself frequently. Chronicle your life. Selfies are completely underrated. Even if the pictures are unflattering, keep them anyway. There will always be mountains and cities and buildings, but you will never look the same way as you did in that one moment in time.

Your worth does not depend on how desirable someone finds you. Spend less time in front of the mirror and more time with people who make you feel beautiful.

Close doors. Don’t hold onto things that no longer brings you happiness and do not help you grow as a person. It is okay to walk away from toxic relationships. You are not weak for letting go.

Forgive yourself. We all have something in our pasts that we are ashamed of, but they only weigh us down if we allow them to. Make amends with the old you and work every day to become the person that you’ve always wanted to be.

I’ve been hearing about using black beans to replace flour for a while now and I wish I had trusted the rumor sooner- these are absolutely fantastic! They’re chocolatey, rich, and smooth but are low fat, have lots of protein (for a brownie at least haha), and are even gluten free! I used powdered sugar because it was what I had on hand and I think it helped the texture too but if you just have regular sugar around use it.

You can also add nuts like almonds, hazelnuts, or peanuts to the batter, or even drizzle the top with melted peanut butter!

For more healthy dessert recipes go here and for more gluten free recipes go here. :)

Anyone from Europe/Africa/Australia/New Zealand?

70% of the people I follow are from the US which means my dash is completely DEAD at this time 😓

Reblog this so I can check out your blog and probably follow you! You don’t have to follow me but it would be cute for a mutual follow ☺️

Today: 55.85kg
8-9-am Fasted cardio, my fav
10:30-7:30pm Work
Now: Dead tired.
Need to do homework but think I might just sleep!

Now that I’ve started training again … Finally. Will be tracking weight, not for weight loss purposes but to track the fluctuations.

Feels so good to finally feel settled in Melbourne, new gym, health and fitness back on track.

Yesterday’s weight: 55.35
Today: 54.86
