#mumfashion. Apparently I’m doing it wrong. 

So, I put it out there on A Questionable Method’s Facebook page (here)  that I was going to attempt to write a post a week. Probably. Well, maybe. This is more for me than you. It was another one of those well-intentioned New Year’s Resolutions, and being that it’s almost April I figured it may…

Wax on Wax off.

Content warning – (P.S How much do the words ‘content warning’ make you want to read a post even more) OK, so this post contains words such as vagina, vulva, and feminism. If any of those words offend you, consider this a NSFW post and I’ll catch you on another day. I’m not an overly…

How to adult (and other fantasies)

All I wanted to be when I was young was a grown-up. It looked like they were having a fundamentally better time. Despite proving myself academically in my latter years, high school and I never had much of a romantic relationship. I had a theory:  math and science classes were designed to melt my brain…

Eating Disorders. Because there is no good way to title this.

Writers note / Content warning: As you are aware, I usually try to keep this blog fairly light and easy. But just today I’d like to share a piece that is close to my heart, and there kind of isn’t any way to sugar coat it. (Pun not intended.) There seems to be a resurgence…

Staying guilt free during the holidays

  We’ve all been there. December rolls around, and you have already been invited to ‘Christmas do’s” since mid September. Hell, you may have already attended at least 12 by the time the tree is officially up. Gym memberships quadruple at the beginning of January; all those well intended New Year’s resolutions to lose the…

Botox and Big Macs.. please do not exceed 180 mins..

I was walking through one of the main Christchurch malls the other day, somewhat mindlessly, searching for an item I probably didn’t need, when I passed the large pharmacy in the middle. Right at the front doors was a huge sign advertising the availability of Botox in-store. I had to double-take to make sure it…

The body beauti- full.

What do you love about your body? Not your personality, or your charming quick-fire-response-skills, but your living, breathing body. It’s hard, isn’t it? As mentioned in previous posts and in my article for EatBeautiful.org  I am one who has struggled with body image. Like, a lot. Although I don’t think anyone would look at me and…

Ouch – social media and yoga dreams

I keep waking up and immediately having pains in my back and neck. I wish I could say that this is due to the epic workouts I have been so busy with that have ensured I have no time to dedicate my words and thoughts to this blog, but unfortunately  this is not even remotely accurate….

I smell bull-paki…..

Now, please! I like my internet fast. I like not waiting at the lights. Packages that arrive more than a week after I have bought them may as well not exist. Nothing is ever quick enough anymore. I’m pretty sure this is not news to you. We live in the google world. So, when it…

Motivation schmotivation

It’s true. I am not motivated to get up and go to the gym everyday. Some of my reasons are chemical, others are that some days, I just wake up feeling punchy. Some mornings I look at my gym clothes and want to tell them to fuck off. I think this is ok. I think we…

Hey swole sister (Screw you carrot stick, I’m eating peanut butter)

Peanut butter sits on somewhat of a food pedestal (if you will) in the bodybuilding world, thanks to its awesome protein content and good fats, plus lets face it, it’s delicious. I will confess to raiding the peanut butter jar in between meals armed with nothing but a shameless spoon, and a large one at that….
