I often find myself talking about balance. To me balance is having a fit & healthy body, combined with a happy family life and professional career. There are times when one or the other of these 2 things may take more of your time, but they always come back into a state of balance in the end. Well.....that is the theory anyway.

So when I woke up today and sat down to write a post, I looked at my blog and realised that I am not really practising what I preach. Yes, I am a powerlifter and training, nutrition and supplementation is a large part of my life. However I am more than a power lifter and even if I wasn't I would still want to look and feel great, I would still be interested in anti aging foods, exercise to keep my muscles and firm and toned and supplements to keep me energised and to sleep well. Given that I am "off season", it seems like the right time to bring some balance back into my blog.....and hopefully a bit more fun.

This morning I woke up and didn't feel like training as my elbows are still a little sore, and I need to wash and dry my hair for a work meeting - so I didn't go. Liberation - or is this balance?

Hi Lisa,

Its great to hear about a woman who enjoys powerlifting, I dont see many female powerlifters and this is a shame.

I wouldnt ay its liberation, I would say its the training/life balance....there are times I dont feel like training for whatever reason, so I dont, sometimes it actually helps to have a rest!
