What is My Story?
In 2010, I decided to change my life for the better. I was once a party girl and had tried every diet or quick fix weight-loss scheme on the market. I was never able to keep my weight off in a healthy way, and I had little knowledge about proper nutrition or exercising.
In 2010, I started to educate myself on healthy eating and working out. I learned about proper nutrition for weight loss, and I started lifting weights and working out on a consistent basis. I taught myself how to create exercise and meal plans to keep myself healthy.
Help For Fitness started off as a Facebook group in 2012 as I had success with losing weight and getting healthy, and a lot of my friends and family were asking me how I did it, and wanted me to help them. I decided to create a Facebook group, Help For Fitness, so I could share my experiences all in one place, and if anyone was interested in getting fit and healthy they could join this community.
In January 2013, my husband Guillermo and I created the company Help For Fitness Pty Ltd. We sold an exclusive selection of high-quality supplements that we tried, reviewed and tested ourselves. In our blog, we posted recipes, healthy eating tips, workout information and supplement reviews.
In 2013, I came across OxyShred by EHPlabs. To ensure the quality of the products that I stocked on Help For Fitness, I decided to do a review on this product where I achieved great results. OxyShred.com.au was created to focus on the distribution of OxyShred to the Australian market.
On the OxyShred.com.au website you can find a list of retailers of OxyShred within Australia as well as information about the product.
After extensive research and planning, we created Protein-UP, a Help For Fitness product and launched In October 2014. I struggled to find a great-tasting, gluten-free protein powder without all the junk and fillers. This was why Protein-UP was created. Protein-UP is a naturally-flavoured, naturally-sweetened whey protein isolate which is gluten free, 99% lactose free and tastes absolutely amazing. As of May 2016, this product has sold out and is being discontinued.
In 2013 and 2014, I competed in various natural bodybuilding competitions within Australia in the Bikini Model Division. I was able to test myself mentally and physically, and reach a goal to compete in bodybuilding competitions.
The journey to the bodybuilding stage was definitely a tough experience but taught me strength, resilience and determination.
Bodybuilding showed me that whatever you want to achieve, you can do it, if you just don’t give up. You can read my Bodybuilding Journey here.
In mid-2014, I started studying a Lifestyle, Food and Wellness Coaching course with Cadence Health in Australia and graduated in 2015.
I finished my last body building show in October 2014, and decided that this was my last show. The reason for this is because I had other commitments that I wanted to focus on which didn’t involve competing. Guillermo and I got engaged in November 2014 and I wanted to focus on planning our wedding, working on Help For Fitness, my career, and completing my course in Lifestyle, Food and Wellness Coaching.
After I finished competing, I struggled with body image, maintaining a balanced exercise regime and food. Bodybuilding made eating a chore and I obsessed over every calorie, weighed all my meals and recorded everything that I ate. I didn’t believe that this behaviour was healthy for me, and it personally did not make me feel good. I hated being on a restrictive diet.
Body building involved working up to 2-3 times a day and this was not maintainable on my regular schedule. I was burnt out from competing and my body was stressed. I decided that I didn’t want to feel this way. I didn’t want to feel guilty if I didn’t work out, I didn’t want to feel restricted with what I was eating, I didn’t want to diet anymore.
Through the Lifestyle, Food and Wellness course, it helped me to realise that dieting is not the long-term answer to maintain a happy and healthy lifestyle. The feelings of restriction and guilt is not the way to achieve my goals.
Instead of yo-yo dieting, I now eat healthy for the long term and do not put myself through extreme dieting. This has helped me to maintain a healthy relationship with food, without feeling restricted. I have learned to change my eating habits, incorporate exercise into my lifestyle and to maintain a healthy weight and body image.
My view on being healthy is much different to what it was a few years ago, especially when I was competing. I believe that dieting is not the answer to being healthy. I believe that making small changes in your lifestyle to suit your goals, is what will give you long-term change.
In 2015, myself and co-author Latoya Walker launched the Busy Girl Guides eBook. These eBooks aim to help women lose weight, and quit dieting for good. We help you to set goals and eat healthy, without the restriction of a diet.
The Busy Girl Workout Guide has workouts which are less than an hour long. We understand that you are busy, and life is busy with other commitments therefore, we want to help you to get fit without the commitment of hours in the gym.
In May 2016, I launched a new eBook called OxyGuide.
My goal with OxyGuide is to show you that you can change your lifestyle, and feel healthy and fit for the long term. Health shouldn’t be a short term goal, but a lifestyle that is continuously maintained throughout your whole life.
The OxyGuide will help you to change your eating habits, and to help you feel better forever. I believe that everyone should have the chance to be healthy, and feel good about themselves.
