OPRAH hits BrisVegas!

Oprah Winfrey Jeanette Maynes

I had a wonderful time last night at the Oprah concert in Brisbane, I always like to learn from the absolute best on subjects, especially spirituality! Oprah’s talk was so inspiring and engaging I have listed some of my notes I scribbled down in the dark. I even took a photo of the big screen, not even realising at the time that the photo was off myself, the camera was on me!!

I didn’t quite get my ‘real’ selfie photo with Oprah this time but I have been putting it out to the Universe, so the Law of Attraction will provide! After all, it is Law!  🙂

Write down 5 things you are grateful for everyday guys and watch your life change right before your eyes!!!!

– Turn up the volume in your Life!

– Live your life on purpose & in Purpose!

– What is the real dream for yourself?

– Oprah loves being at home with herself and never gets lonely (Me too!!!!)

– Surrender the dream that you hold for yourself to the life that is waiting for you to claim.

– There is no life without a spiritual life.

– Success comes from connection to spirit | source | power.

– What are you here? We are all here for a purpose; we enter the world because we are spiritually called. Honour your calling!

– Use your personality and physical self to serve your spirit.

– Favourite quote: “I am the Master of my Fate, I am the Captain of my Soul”

– LUCK preparation meeting the moment of opportunity!

– Let no one keep you from your journey. Your life is validated through your service to other people. Use your job to service others.

– Oprah believes in; The 3rd Law of Motion (For every action there is an equal and opposite re-action)  and 1 Principle; The Principle of Intention.

– Every action, though & feeling is motivated by intention. What is your intention? You become what you Believe!

– “No” is a complete sentence.

– Control how you love, be love in the world.

– Excellence in the best deterrent! EXCELLENCE!!! Be the highest expression of who you were meant to be!

– Validation. Don’t ask others what they think, check in with yourself.

– Validation. When people ask, “Was that OK?”
What people want to hear is; Did you hear me? Did what I say mean anything? Do you see me? Do you hear me?

– Whisper = MESSAGE

Bikram Yoga BrisVegas

I have had a lovely stay in Brisbane the past week catching up with family at a wedding and my dear friend Naomi and made the most of South Bank, The Botanical Gardens, Kangaroo Point Stairs, the Storey Bridge and Riverside walk for my exercise (walks & runs)!

I also did my first ever Bikram Yoga class, well four actually in just one week!!
90mins, 40 degrees, 26 postures + two breathing techniques!

OMG my hamstrings were killing me, everything was aching and I had a great workout! Even though my muscle are very tight | constricted, I still tried to do my best at beginners level for the positions.
Such a wonderful class with our instructor Ben giving me excellent advice on how to get the best out of my workouts and complementing me on little improvements. I learnt so much about the wonderful exercises and benefits from Ben’s extensive knowledge, it’s all so very interesting! I felt marvellous after each class and was so relaxed!

I burnt 450 calories at each session so that is a good workout in itself!

“Benefits of Bikram Yoga – Gaining strength and flexibility are reasons to start Bikram Yoga but find out why this practice really changes your life!”

I also found lots of goodies at the midweek Queen St Markets!!! (Wednesday opposite Treasury Casino)

+ a couple of night pictures I took – So much to do in BrisVegas! …. including OPRAH!


FRASER COAST FITNESS & HEALTH EXPO 2015


My speech & some images from the day:
In Queensland 65% of adults and 28% of children are overweight or obese which includes 50% of the Fraser Coast being overweight or obese.

Therefore being very passionate about fitness, fun & health I’ve organised today’s ‘Step into Spring’ FITNESS & HEALTH EXPO to raise awareness, promote prevention and help educate about Fitness & Health on the Fraser Coast! Please note: Audience participation is compulsory!

I have written and published a ‘4 Week Program’ which is a Mind, Meal & Exercise Plan that teaches people the tools and skills to apply for a long term happy healthy lifestyle, which will is available at the Zumba stall as I hope to revolutionise the Fraser Coast! I find the Fraser Coast obesity epidemic very serious and am working towards creating a massive community lifestyle overhaul campaign with the help of other like minded professionals!

This event would not be possible without the Awesome support of Karen Chatfield the site manager and the Hervey Bay Council for the Arts​ who generously gave us one of their open mike days for the event, covered the insurance plus all stall fees have been donated back to them for their support of this fun day.

I would like extend a huge thanks to Katie form Z Club Dance Fitness for kindly providing the use of her awesome sound equipment for the day, plus she will be doing some high energy zumba for us to participate in also!

I would like to thank my Fraser Coast Fitness & Health friends, where are you, hand up ladies, if you have any questions today just ask the girls. We also go for a walk every Wednesday at 6:30am with Cheryl from the Torquay Jetty to the pier return and all are welcome to join us.

A massive thank you to the Amazing team of local businesses have come on board to showcase the high level of professional services, products, skills, tools and knowledge available to all. This will be a huge day of fun with maximum audience participation! There are stalls, performances, talks and demos including and on – Bio-aging, Massage, Foot Reflexology, Crossfit, Gyms, Meditation, Yoga, Face Painting, Zumba, Belly Dancers, Martial Arts, Tennis, Burlesque & Fitness Demos plus heaps more.

We will also be raising funds for Bayside Transformations one of our local Residential Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation non for profit Program, who will be manning the ‘healthy option’ BBQ and they have a stall with more info. I would also like to mention that Climbmax the rock wall here is donating 10% of their profits from today to Bayside so make sure you have a climb!

We are a team of passionate individuals and businesses on the Fraser Coast that work together to raise awareness and help others achieve a new way of life and thinking that is healthy, exciting, fun and will make you happy!

Our only competition is laziness, a sedentary lifestyle, poor choices, mental health, fast and junk food plus the television!

 

Nikon D5300 DSLR Camera with 18-55mm VR II Lens Kit

15 NikonI’ve finally bought a good beginners camera to further my interest in photography being a – Nikon D5300 DSLR Camera with 18-55mm VR II Lens Kit, with wifi and gps.

Yesterday I did some camera practice on a 10km hike on Fraser Island. Some of my beginners snaps here and a couple taken of me by acclaimed award winning local photographer Sandra Boles on her weapon of a camera. Thanks heaps for all the helpful tips Sandy!!

Turia Pitt Motivational Talk

On Saturday the 6th of June I had the wonderful opportunity to listen to the very inspirational Turia Pitt at the Brolga Theatre Maryborough.
Turia was burned terribly to 65% of her body in Sept 2011 by a grassfire when competing in a 100km Ultra Marathon across the Kimberley. She mentioned she passed away three times on the operating table and her amazing transformation has so far taken over three years and over two hundred surgical procedures. She wore her mask for two years and didn’t like it at all, mentioning how we all wear masks ….. something to think about!

She spoke of how people have so much more potential and are capable of so much more than they realise. If you really want to do something you will always find a way to make it happen, anything is possible if you never give up. Time is our most precious resource, make the most of every single day.
Earlier this year Turia ran the Huskisson 42km Marathon and beat her time from before her injuries! She is currently training between 8am – 11am in the morning to compete in an Ironman! 4km swim, 180km bike ride plus 42km run.

Turia mentioned that long runs can be tedious which I tend to agree with so she uses her imagination for distraction such as seeing herself as a messenger running to the Queen. Her talk was very amusing.
She mentioned one day she may get back into engineering as she missed the maths and spread sheets (I couldn’t think of anything worse hee hee) but for now is enjoying her motivational public speaking and supporting the charity Interplast plus possibly staring a family with Michael.
She has also written a book ‘Everything to Live For’, more info here! … and is currently working on her new book, ‘Life is a Gift’.

LEON NACSON, JEANETTE MAYNES, REID TRACY

LEON NACSON, JEANETTE MAYNES, REID TRACY

Over the past weekend I had the amazing opportunity of attending the Hay House Writers Seminar in Sydney as I had been fortunate due to the help and support of many voting for me and had WON a free ticket to the event.
Talk about Awesome, I learnt so much and had many questions and thoughts answered in relation to my self-published soon to be BEST SELLING ‘4 Week Program!’ plus my marketing jeanette maynes hao house writers seminarplan, my platforms, my websites and the way I am implementing my goals and book / program within the community.
The energy and vibration in the room was electric and I met so many wonderful friendly like minded people. I hung out with a lovely lady and made a new friend also a ticket winner being Melissa Gibson a psychic, we got along fabulously – the Butterfly Whisperer.
Now to finalise my Synopsis to present to Hay House!
Someone (or maybe more than one person) who attended the seminar will WIN a publishing package with them; I could be the next best selling author accelerating my passion to “Get Australia Motivated!”. I hope so as I can feel it within my whole being!!

I had the pleasure of meeting and having a photo with the authors in order (the 1st four even before the seminar started!) as per my Law of Attraction photo print out (pretty powerful – reminds me of my Law of Attraction Donald Trump picture here) and the rest throughout the two days. I was also on the print out as a featured author as I will be speaking at the seminar in the future (L.O.A. at work). I even had a photo taken on stage with my book to assist my Law of Attraction processes! All the authors had such inspiring stories and were great at public speaking.
The images in the gallery include:

–       REID TRACY President and CEO of Hay House Publishing the largest publisher of self empowerment books, cds, dvds and empowering live events in the world.
–       LEON NACSON Managing Director of Hay House Australia, and the author of nine books. His current International Best Seller ‘A Stream of Dreams’ has been translated into four languages.

PAM GROUT

Some of the Awesome quotes from the weekend:
–       “A blog is an important place to start. Show up every day and write a blog post with no agenda other than to be of service.” – Jess Ainscough

–       “Focus in on one core audience that you’re trying to build. Know who you’re trying to reach. Ask people why they’re being referred to you to try to figure out who this is. Build an avatar for your audience based on gender, age, interests.” – Reid Tracy
–       “Books are intimate things. They’re one of the only things apart from your husband/wife/partner that you take to bed with you.” – Reid Tracy   (or if you are me it’s your Laptop to listen to Reid and Louise Hay lol)
–       “Ask yourself, what makes my book so different? So interesting? Don’t write to be a best seller. Write for and from your heart, not your wallet. Write something you want to be remembered by.” – Leon Nacson
–       “The hard part about writing a book is getting people to read it.” – Reid Tracy

After the seminar I ran 11.5km around Sydney for some exercise and even managed to get my weekly stair runs in at the ‘Oprah’ House,  proudly promoting the Fraser Coast Health & Fitness Community Action Group.

“Need A Hand?”
GOAL # 1 – REDUCE OBESITY ON THE FRASER COAST FROM 70% TO 50% WITH POSITIVE AND GOAL ORIENTATED INITIATIVES INTURN DRAMATICALLY LOWERING DIABETES!
We need to have at least 1,000 people doing my ‘4 Week Program’ to create a flow on effect to change 20,000 people to achieve the goal of dropping the obesity / overweight statistic from 70% to 50% on the Fraser Coast! (this could be executed in as short a time frame as 12 months!) Just imagine how happy, energetic, motivated and productive everyone would be! Too Exciting! (Then I / We can start on the rest of the 63% of Australia!)

JAIL 2 JUSTICE WALK DERRYN HINCH

10361997_10152317452388673_2832631163909102899_n“Until I decided to walk 180km from Langi Kal Kal Prison to Melbourne  in my Jail 2 Justice campaign the longest I had walked in years was in Hervey Bay – from the caravan park to the pier and back.

That’s why it is somehow fitting that there is a Hervey Bay connection this weekend with my campaign through your Enzo’s to the Pier and return. I am honoured  that Jeanette Maynes suggested to me that her free community walk should be a 10km Queensland celebration of ours.

The goal of Jail 2 Justice is twofold. To honour the families of the victims of crime. To ‘walk a mile in their shoes’. And to draw attention to my petition for a national public register of convicted sex offenders. When I was released from jail in March we had 43,000  signatures. That figure has grown by more than 80,000  to 115,000.

The campaign, and the walk,  have a strong Queensland  connection. On the final day, next Monday, we walk from Brunswick – where Jill Meagher was killed – to Parliament House in Melbourne to present the petition  to  Victorian  Premier Denis Napthine.

Joining me on that final stage will be Daniel Morcombe’s  mum and dad, Denise and Bruce Morcombe. This amazing couple have endorsed my campaign.

Thanks for taking part this weekend. I believe Australian  parents are angry, frustrated and scared about their children’s futures. A new national law, outlined in my petition, is a start.”

Jail 2 Justice Walk - Derryn Hinch petition 3“Help… Please!

THIS IS AN APPEAL to police, to the courts, to the child welfare authorities, to the so-called protectors of this community. It is an appeal to sanity. And if I don’t do this, I will never be able to forgive myself if something awful happens to another child. And, believe me, it will.” – Derryn Hinch

Sweet and Sour – Saturday, 17 May 2014

THERE WERE MIXED FEELINGS on a chilly May dawn today when we started our ten-day Jail 2 Justice walk from Langi Kal Kal Prison to Melbourne.
Positive vibes that we were trying to do something for a community wracked with anger, frustration and fear over what’s been going on in our courts and parole system.
But also the underlying truth that many of our supporters, including most of those walking today, have personal stories to tell and all of them sad ones.
They are the people we walked for today. A symbolic ‘walk a mile in their shoes’ event to show that Australians do care and want to do something about it.
About 45 of us started out from Langi Kal Kal this morning. At the end of the first ten kilometres I stole a quote from a baseball movie: ‘Build it and they will come’. – Derryn Hinch

Please keep up to date with the ‘Jail 2 Justice Walk’ daily updates here!

Jail 2 Justice Walk - Derryn Hinch

Jeanette Maynes am dedicating this weekend’s Fraser Coast FREE 10km Challenge – Community Walk / Run to support, honour and promote Derryn’s inspirational ‘Jail 2 Justice Walk’ and acknowledge the victims, survivors and their families in our region / nationwide as is paramount we all do our bit to raise awareness, protect all children, change the laws and BREAK THE SILENCE! Children deserve and are entitled to love, happiness, honour, protection and security.

Jail 2 Justice Walk - Derryn Hinch petitionPLEASE SIGN THE PETITION HERE!!! –
….In Australia, the rights of convicted sex offenders seem to take precedence over victims’ rights. Especially with paedophiles. Serial sex offenders have their names, photos and addresses, suppressed by the courts on release…… We, the undersigned, insist, that by the end of 2014, the Australian governments, state and federal, through their attorneys-general, unite to publish an ongoing national public register of all convicted sex offenders similar to Megan’s Law in the United States.

 

 

Why am I so Passionate about the 4 Week Program?

4 Week Program ebook

4 Week Program Cover 2014It Works!
I Live and Breathe It!
I WALK THE TALK!

Learn to be HAPPY in 4 Weeks!
“Good habits are as addictive as bad habits, and a lot more Rewarding!”
http://jeanettemaynes.com/the-story/

This has made me so passionate about helping others be happy! Since the start of 2006 I have researched and been reprogramming my thoughts, behaviours, self talk and beliefs plus implemented new and exciting fitness, eating and lifestyle habits.

Beforehand, I had very negative self talk, plus unhealthy habits – junk food, smoking and drinking. You really don’t love yourself when you are slowly trying to kill yourself – one bite, puff or sip at a time!

I had lost 16 kilo’s in my early 20’s to get back to a healthy weight range (69.9 kg down to 54kg) but did that while still drinking, smoking and eating junk food! My behaviours didn’t change and I eventually put that weight back on due to these negative and self destructive habits and self sabotage from a very WEAK MIND!

I hit 30 and said, “THAT IS IT! ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!” … BE ACCOUNTABLE! Stop blaming others, your situations, made up negative beliefs and your past! YOU are in control of YOUR life and BAM, I CHOSE TO CHANGE and well that was it!!

noosa halfI went cold turkey on the cigarettes, stating I am never spending another cent on this sh*t or putting one near my mouth ever again! AND I HAVEN’T. To do this I had to get off the grog. I did 42 days straight without a drink till I felt I had enough self control to enjoy a beer! I also said there is no way I’m putting on weight like everyone else while I give up smoking SO THERE IT STARTED! I grabbed a piece of paper, pencil, a calorie book and started writing everything I ate and kept under a certain calorie limit each day (thank god we now have speedy online websites to do this for us). I lost SIX kilograms straight up when I gave up smoking and then a further NINE kilograms as I learnt about calorie control, portion sizes and the importance of regular exercise.

I now run my own successful multi award winning graphic and website design business (DESIGN HOUSE), have climbed to Base Camp at Mt Everest, run the Great Wall of China Marathon, rode a Harley for many years and now realise and believe with all my heart that ABSOLUTELY ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE FOR ANYONE IN LIFE FOR ANYONE!

photoshoot blue

Today I’m extremely motivated, positive, passionate, driven and happy, which people comment on all the time. I don’t tolerate negativity, I have absolutely no concern what others think of me; that is their business, I do not lower my standards for anyone, I do not enable poor me talk and behaviour from others, nor do I associate with people that do not fully support me and lift me higher.

Working casual hours at a gym while finalising my Personal Trainer study made me realise people just have ABSOLUTELY NO IDEA ABOUT THE CALORIES in food, correct portion sizes and how much energy is required to burn off what you eat, hence about 70% of Wide Bay residents(my home area) in Queensland being in the UNHEALTHY or OBESE RANGE.

Australia is today ranked as one of the fattest nations in the developed world and around 63% of Australian adults were classified as overweight or obese in 2012.

Therefore since 2006 beginning extensive study, research and implementation I decided to write the4 Week Program‘ SO OTHERS CAN TEACH THEMSELVES TO FEEL AND DO THE SAME, by being ACCOUNTABLE for themselves, as everyone deserves to be happy, and if I can help one person or preferably ONE TOWN at a time that will make me happy!

I always THINK BIG so my GOAL is to start with my HOME TOWN / REGION (before going National) and see how much weight we can lose on my 4 Week Program!’ as a community supporting each other. NOW IS THE TIME TO TAKE CONTROL BACK OF YOUR LIFE!

It’s SIMPLE: Nothing more, nothing less –
If calorie intake exceeds calorie expenditure, we gain weight.
If calorie intake is less than calorie expenditure we lose weight.
If calorie intake equals calorie expenditure, our weight remains the same.

louise hay

We MUST Visualise – See your life as you want it. You must visualise this in your mind and see it as already completed to have success! See your life, your figure, your fitness, your goals as already being accomplished!

We will work on the most important aspect being the MIND. If you have a STRONG MIND everything else just falls into place! The corporation for Louise L. Hay, Hay House founder and best-selling author of inspirational, self-help books including my favourite ‘You Can Heal Your Life’ have given me written permission to reference this book in my program as it is profoundly inspirational, powerful plus mind and life altering!

Lifestyles 1000 zThe 4 Week Program is NOT a ‘DIET’, we need to eliminate that word from our vocabulary!
It is the correct and only way that works, clean healthy eating and regular exercise. It is SCIENTIFIC, MATHEMATICAL and FOOLPROOF; so if you follow the instructions and program exactly you CANNOT FAIL! The 4 Week Program provides knowledge you will be able to APPLY FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE AND UNDERSTAND!

This program should be a must and taught to senior students in all schools so they are equipped for the real world, they can then teach their own children and this would completely change the next generation and the next and so on.

There is a meal plan (approved by an Accredited Practising Dietitian) and also an exercise plan that I have designed as a qualified Personal Trainer and Life Coach. You must follow both plans. The exercise plan includes strength, cardio and stretch programs that people can also do at home or on holidays if they don’t currently attend a gym or exercise classes.

10km ChallengeTHIS IS A PROGRAM YOU CAN START ANYTIME, PERFORM ANYWHERE ANYTIME, NOT JUST FOR THE 4 WEEKS, IT’S FOREVER …. but 4 weeks straight of being strict and exact will shotgun initial weight loss and results … potentially up to a KILO A WEEK OR MORE!

4 Week Program Half Cover 2014

Every day is perfect for setting goals or starting fresh

jeanette maynes dayman parkRESEARCH shows that 44% of Australians have a goal to lose weight in 2014.

But Hervey Bay’s Jeanette Maynes believes health and fitness should be a part of everyday life, not just as a new year resolution.

The personal trainer says every day was a perfect time for setting goals or starting fresh.

“Keep planning and keep achieving, it keeps the motivation flowing.

“Every day is a new exciting beginning, a change to change.”

Ms Maynes said there was “no excuse” for recent statistics that ranks Queensland at the top of the obesity scales.

“When you talk about obesity everyone goes off their nut trying to justify it,” she said.

“I think it time to start addressing the topic… people need to become accountable for their behaviours.”

Ms Maynes said the key to achieving a healthier lifestyle was having a strong mind and 100% focus.

“Write it down,” she said.

“You must clearly visualise in your mind that you have achieved the goal before you even start.

“Break it down into small steps that you can achieve each day.

“Exercise does change your life so make time for it in your routine – it really is worth it.”

Anyone who wants to start fresh has the opportunity to take part in Ms Maynes’ free 10km community challenge on Saturday, January 18, leaving from Enzo’s to the Urangan Pier and back again.

“I support people to get out of their comfort zone and walk a little further than they usually would.

“It’s all in the mind, anyone can walk 10km, the body does what the mind tells it.

“Once people realise that with a strong focused mind they can do anything, the possibilities in life are endless.”

Ms Maynes has also written a four-week healthy eating and exercise program e-book, which is available HERE

Jeanette’s top tips

• Do not let anyone distract you. Do not eat rubbish because someone tells you to. Explain to others you have a goal and will not stray from it. Remove or avoid anyone or anything that does not completely support and encourage your goal.

• Feel proud each day that each small step is a positive change to achieving your goal and inner happiness.

• Have a strong mind. The first three weeks of starting a healthy lifestyle and fitness regime will be the toughest. Forming a new habit takes about 21 days. If that habit is clean eating and exercise you have just created a habit that your body will be thanking you for the rest of your life.

My first ever speech!

 

Today I presented my first ever half hour speech at the Fraser Coast University with Matthew Condon, Hugh Lunn, & Chris Collin.

“Set a goal to achieve something that is so big, so exhilarating that it excites you and scares you at the same time. It must be a goal that is so appealing, so much in line with your spiritual core, that you can’t get it out of your mind. If you do not get chills when you set a goal, you’re not setting big enough goals.” – Bob Proctor

When the library asked me to do this speech I though  …NOW This one is a Goal that Chills me! Presenting my first ever half hour speech at the university in the auditorium!!

Public Speaking I thought …. well I passed a toast masters course in grade 8 when I was 13, I’m sure I’ll remember how to do it! Talk about Face a Fear!

Luckily I do not think of fear as fear, I see it as adrenalin, excitement, anticipation and the opportunity to conquer a goal. So the preparation begin, I organised this goal into small achievable chunks plus I clearly pictured in my mind the task as being completed and an absolute huge success!! I saw a beer in my hand tonight to celebrate a successful speech!

I designed this picture two years ago when attending the business seminar in Sydney seminar, Talk about ‘Law of Attraction!’ What have I been subconsciously attracting and where could public speaking lead to and with whom ….. please click here to view my ebooks.

 

“I attended Jeanette Maynes first ever speech which the crowd clearly enjoyed – and I did too. Jeanette envelopes the audience with her presence and her vibrant personality and a clear command of her subjects. She made the audience laugh; showed great photos to go with her stories – but most of all it was her beautiful, direct, dinkum Australian accent – something you rarely hear anymore. She was a HIT!”
– Hugh Lunn |  Award Winning Author

 

“I  attended a talk by Jeanette Maynes at  the Hervey Bay USQ, where she spoke on the E Books she had published. The first part of the talk covered her experience of her trek to Mt Everest Base Camp with all the trials and triumphs that she encountered along the way. I found this account very engaging, and it fascinated me as to how someone would so willingly put themself through  t hat kind of challenge.   It was wonderful to be provided with an understanding of the cultural side of the Sherpas who assist climbers with their backpacks, and become the climbers’ best friend. At times it was humourous, and always uplifting. She held the attention of her audience well, which was assisted with the use of some great photos that she had taken along the way.

The second part of her talk was on running across The Great Wall of China. This account also kept her audience riveted as we listened  as to why Jeanette, would willingly welcome such a challenging experience. She provided some great insights into what you needed to tell yourself, and the mindset that was needed to keep going until the end, even long after the body wants to give up. Once again, there were some top quality photos to enhance her story.

The third part of her story, focussed on her role as a Personal Trainer and her ideas for promoting good health to her clients. She covered diet and exercise, and certainly showed us that she had walked the walk, and wasn’t just talking the talk. Although I found this talk helpful, I would have loved to have heard more of her own personal weight loss story, and the trials she faced along the way.  I think I would have identified with her story a little more, if this had been the case.

The next section, included her quest to become the best she could be, by reading books and attending seminars presented by the most successful  businessmen  in the world . Jeanettes’  account of meeting her idol,  Donald Trump, and the visualisation that had preceded  this event, was both touching and impressive. It was made clear to all of us, what was possible if you dared to dream, as she had.

In conclusion, Jeanette discussed her passion for graphic design, and website designing. Against the backdrop of the other topics she had discussed, this topic was a wonderful contrast. It highlighted her passion for design, and creating unique artwork. Overall, her talk was bright, bold and sassy, and showed her to be a real breath of fresh air. I look forward to hearing what she has to say next.”

I have received some very positive feedback from participants, not only on the whole event but specifically on your talk.”

E-Squared: Nine Do-It-Yourself Energy Experiments That Prove Your Thoughts Create Your Reality

The Superhero Principle – e2

Your Thoughts & Consciousness Impact Matter:
Recently I conducted an experiment from the book I’m reading e2 with the help of my Dad.
I have attached the experiment info, but what I did was will the beans on the LEFT side of the carton to grow quicker than the right.
The more energy aimed at the beans on the left apparently the quicker they will grow.
“With my innate energy, I will that the beans on the left side of the egg carton grow faster than the beans on the right!”

The results and what I learn’t:

IMG_3487

Two beans sprouted on the left and only one on the right (on day eight, three beans had sprouted on the left and still only one on the right). So which side grew more?

Well the left grew more, as we were focusing on the left, but they were supposed to grow the tallest so really the right won this experiment.

Then I looked at my rules again “With my innate energy, I will that the beans on the left side of the egg carton grow faster than the beans on the right! … is not two beans faster than one?
I now realise it doesn’t say anything about height …. ha ha science always setting quantum lessons to figure out!

Perception is everything, how we see things in our mind may not be how they really are. We may stress ourselves out for no reason at all because of our mind and it’s beliefs.
Look at something from a different angle or perception and it could be a complete SUCCESS!!! Like my Beans on the LEFT!!

THREE SIMPLE Steps to SUCCESS – 
1. Sign Up & Download the ‘4 Week Program’ – Instant Access!
2. Follow the Meal & Exercise Plan!
3. See & Feel the Results!

I am educating people on what I have taught myself over the past years to lose weight, keep in shape, maintain your healthy goal weight, look and feel great plus achieve happiness and self-respect. The 4 Week Program provides knowledge you will be able to apply for the rest of your life and understand. No fad diets, in fact NO Diet, no quick fix, just the correct and only way that works clean healthy eating and regular exercise. It is scientific, mathematical and foolproof; so if you follow the instructions and program exactly you CANNOT Fail! The information you learn will be beneficial forever.

4 Week Program Half Cover 2014

There is a meal plan (approved by an Accredited Practising Dietitian) and also an exercise plan that I have designed as a qualified Personal Trainer. You must follow both plans. The exercise plan includes strength, cardio and stretch programs that people can also do at home or on holidays if they don’t currently attend a gym or exercise classes. It IS NOT A DIET that when you finish you don’t know what to do next and put the weight back on. There are NO shakes, meal replacements or miracle pills! This program will make you understand how it all works which is something important that you must master for your entire life!

So start NOW, it’s never too late to make a change! If you want to have a coffee, a wine or a piece of chocolate, that is up to you. This Program is not as restrictive as most as that is not how one operates in real life. We need to be flexible otherwise it puts too much pressure on us. If one just cuts everything enjoyable from their diet, failure can occur. Most foods are ok in moderation, even chocolate; it’s not that it’s not good for you, it’s just that it is high in calories so must be eaten in moderation. This is a program you can start anytime, perform anywhere anytime, not just for the 4 weeks, it’s FOREVER …. but 4 weeks straight of being strict and exact will shotgun initial weight loss and results … potentially up to a Kilo a week or More!

Forming a new habit takes approximately 21 days. If that habit is clean eating and exercise you have just created a habit that your body will be thanking you for the rest of your life! Exercise does change your life so make time for exercise in your regular routine – it really is worth it!” Transform into a FAT BURNING MACHINE from a Fat Storing Being!

TESTIMONIALS:
“Thank you Jeanette for designing a weight loss program that is so flexible & easy to follow to achieve a long term healthy lifestyle. I have tried other 4 week programs but with yours the meals are quicker to prepare & more suited to my budget. All your information is very useful & I love that it gives you ideas for so many ways to incorporate exercise into your life and if I have any questions you are there for support. Thanks again” – Participant Feedback

“Before starting Jeanette Maynes ’4 Week Program’ I had tried all kinds of diet fads. I found the best was cutting carbs out of my diet, this only lasted for a short period and then I would regain all I had lost. The 4 week program helped me to understand why I gain weight and how to manage every day life. Understanding the effects of what I put in to my body and what I need to do to loose or maintain weight has helped me live a normal easy healthy life! I didn’t have to give up the naughty foods I just had to understand how to make it not leave a lasting effect. The ’4 Week Program’ really works 8kgs down in 2 months and no weight gain in the 3 months after while maintaining! Best thing I ever did was send that message to you and actually do it!! Thanks Jeanette xxxx” – Taylor Harte

“I started the 4 Week Program to help lose a couple of kilo’s but more importantly to take control of my body again and start making healthy lifestyle changes a way of life! The 4 Week Program taught me to make wise healthy eating choices and the importance of exercise. Jeanette was always there to answer questions and her support and encouragement is amazing. It was a very simple lifestyle program to follow and one that I found works and definitely worth doing!” – Sam Andersen

This is going to be Exciting, Results Driven & Fun, so Go On take the First Step!

Kingfisher Bay to Eurong Return; 50km by FOOT!

On Saturday morning my friend Michelle and I set out for a 20km hike to Eurong from Kingfisher Bay, which took 5:15hrs burning 1,630 calories through the hills and soft sand.

Upon getting there we checked into Eurong Beach Resort, glad to take off our overnight bags then we had a look at the  souvenir shop, went down the beach, enjoyed a spa, then hit the Beach Bar for some beers! We enjoyed a buffet dinner then it was early to bed for our return to Kingfisher Bay at 5:30am via Central Station, Basin Lake & Lake Mckenzie being a 30km Hike taking 7hrs (including meal breaks) and burning 2,180 calories!

The scenery and environment is magnificent ranging from bush, to soft sand, lakes, rainforest and surf! This hike is definitely a must do again, such Awesome FUN!

TOUGH MUDDER – All aboard the Pain Train! 20km, fire, ice & 10,000 volts!

Tough Mudder is described as “probably the toughest event on the planet” and after 5hrs, 20km slog of thick MUD, 25 British Special Forces Obstacles and EIGHT electric shocks for me, we’re now officially  TOUGH MUDDERS!’ We managed to get over 3m Berlin walls, through underground mud tunnels, electric shocks  (TWO DIFFERENT OBSTACLES) a fire pit & the refreshing ice bath plus burnt 2,120 calories with the help of other awesome unknown Mudders!!

We attempted all tasks and I only just didn’t complete 2 being monkey bars (slipped off 4 in) and (‘Mt Everest’ half pipe, touched but just missed gripping the hands to get pulled up).

Our training paid off as we were definitely fit enough but it was certainly a tough course and we went at our own pace. We were tested physically and conquered fears while having a good laugh and fun at the same time! Half way through I said I wonder if I could back up next year? After pulling up pretty okay the next day that’s possibly the new goal, camp overnight and do TWO Tough Mudders Back to Back!

The event was held at Glenworth Valley in Sydney on Sunday 23rd September 2012 – the venue and organisation was Excellent!

 

TOUGH MUDDER

CALORIES PER KG

CALORIES PER KG

• To lose one kilogram of fat you must burn 7,700 calories more than you eat a week; If you have a calorie deficit of 1,100 per day (meaning that you burn 1,100 calories more than you eat each day), you will lose 1 kg per week.

• To lose half a kilogram of fat you must burn 3,850 calories more than you eat a week; If you have a calorie deficit of 550 per day (meaning that you burn 550 calories more than you eat each day), you will lose 500grams per week.

Fitness is Science NOT Magic! 

Lifting Heavy Weights DOES NOT Bulk Up Women … It’s literally NOT POSSIBLE…!

“Strength training will improve muscle tone and appearance but a two or three 30 – 40 minute strength workout  a week will not bulk you up. Women do not have enough testosterone to build huge muscles and they would have to lift massive weights several times a week plus maintain a strict carefully controlled diet and use supplements (possibly illegal ones – steroids) to bulk up. Don’t let this misleading perception stop you from gaining the benefits of toning up and becoming fit and healthy. Muscle takes up less room than fat, so in fact women tend to lose cm’s when they strength train plus muscle uses calories faster than fat, even while you sleep. Although your body obtains calories, or energy, from fat, muscle tissue also burns calories for your body but at a faster rate. In addition to the physical benefits (increased strength, decreased risk of osteoporosis & increased metabolism), strength training will help you slim down! So ladies No Excuses, Don’t be afraid to pick up weights !!”  – Jeanette Maynes
