My diet has become progressively worse and worse over the past few weeks and it reached a point where I said “Enough is enough” and decided to try a complete reboot. I am doing the Urban Remedy juice cleanse for three days. Three days with just juice? Well kind of. A couple of the juices are more like thick smoothies and a couple of savoury soups, so it’s nothing as dramatic as the Lemon Detox diet or the like.

Do you ever find that whenever you plan a big challenging project, you procrastinate better than you’ve ever procrastinated before? Finishing my next eBook has been on my to do list for weeks. I know that it’s my fear of putting something new out there that is fuelling my procrastination, but it doesn’t stop me from chickening out and getting distracted.

Welcome to my social experiment, The 52 Delights Project, where I try something new for a week and let you know how (or if) it changed my life! … THE [...]

I am a sucker for almost every sugary treat in the book; brownies, cakes, pastries, desserts, chocolate – you name it.

My slightly left of field outfits became a bit of a signature for me and I loved getting creative with my wardrobe every morning. Now I’ve lost that.

So that is my self-imposed challenge of the week. To reinvent myself aesthetically and put some more effort into my appearance.

I’m going to take my own advice and get on the self promotion bandwagon. I am going to throw myself into some professional development. I will be strict on incorporating some kind of business building activity into every weekday. It’s time to focus on some business savvy growth!

Since April is now the month where I focus on my health, I’ve decided that clearing some of the clutter in the apartment will work wonders for my mental health. I always feel much more clear-headed after a big spring clean, the extra space in the house feels like it makes extra space in my head.

I tend to be a little flighty and go wherever the wind will take me. I have dreams and ambitions, but if an opportunity arises, I don’t evaluate it with any lifestyle criteria. I want to be able to have a clear understanding of what fits into my life and what I will and won’t comprise on.
