My daily must do’s….
I am a women of routine and always have a million things going on, so my daily must do’s include a lot! Coffee is a must before everything – it’s my one health vice (with lo and behold milk & sugar) as is wifi and a computer.
My biggest must do is to spend quality time with my babies without technology – easier said than done! Sometimes the only way I do this is to snuggle with them while they sleep… good for the soul.
Something on your bucket list…
In all honesty there isn’t something that I am dying to do or try that I haven’t experienced. I am pretty grateful for my life at the moment, but want to stop projecting into the future so much.
Can’t live without make up/beauty products…
Vitamin E cream for my face & lip balm
A strength of mine…
I am fairly optimistic – there’s nothing that I’ve set my mind to that I honestly didn’t think I could achieve.
I always avoid…
Big crowds… being 4 foot 11 I kind of get lost!
Fav Insta/Twitter account you follow?
I love Lauren Kate – she is in the fitness industry and lives in Brisbane. I’ve never met her, but love her honest posts. She is just so genuine and this shines through.
What advice would you tell your 18 year old self…
Don’t project into the future too far and just enjoy the moment – sport is a privileged existence and compete for as long as you possibly can!
Recipe for success – Your 3 main ingredients?
Hard work, planning and patience
Your personal indulgence or obsession?
I love good food… think smoked salmon, blueberries, raspberries. But more importantly I love good food that I don’t have to cook!
What’s the best piece of advice you have ever received?
My mother always told me that if I worked hard I could achieve anything. I know it’s pretty simple advice, but it’s something that has been instilled in me from a very young age.
Your game changing moment?
In terms of competing this came when I was 22 and finally found my mojo with competing. It was something that didn’t come too naturally to me – I had already won an Olympic Medal at this stage but the year after Olympics in 2001 World Championships I truly learnt to block out the outside noise and distractions and zone into what I had to do – I then medalled in every international event I competed in from 2001 – 2006.
After sport my game changing moment was taking the plunge, turning my back on the corporate world & starting to run my own business. It replicates the highs and lows of elite and competitive sport to a tee.
Books on your nightstand?
I unfortunately do not read as much as I should. The last book I read was Mao’s last dancer…
Biggest myth about success busted…
The most talented person always comes out on top. Not true! The hardest working individual with the most self-belief always comes out on top…
A secret about your journey to share…
I feel like it’s really only just begun!
