“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”
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!
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.
The information you learn will be beneficial forever.
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!
- Jeanette Maynes
This is going to be Exciting, Results Driven & Fun, so Go On take the First Step!
Once payment has cleared, the ’4 Week Program’ will be emailed to you to print out and start immediately, Good Luck!
Failure is Not an Option!
Today I participated in the Warrior Dash at Kilcoy in Queensland and camped overnight at the Kilcoy Show grounds before the event.
The track was a little wet with light rain on and off, on the day and the day before.
Warrior Dash Result: 41:46 mins.
I came 989 out of 4,553 participants and 105th in my age group (30 – 39) out of 925 women.
It was an excellent course and well organised with some awesome obsticales and steep hills!
The only thing I found was the 5km was too short for me, when I finished I wanted to do a second loop!
An Awesome event if you are starting out on your fitness adventures or just want to have some fun with friends, might have to dress up next time!
If so, let me know how you go and how many calories you burn!!

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 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!

“Jeanette, That was inspirational! Thanks for all the info and pics that you put together- it was the most comprehensive and entertaining report of the base-camp trek I’ve ever read. You are a great role model for women; I wish you many hot showers and firm stools!” – Belinda
It’s Official!!! Training for the Sept ‘TOUGH MUDDER’ in Sydney has started!!!! 5 and half weeks of intense focused strategic hardcore training ahead! We can’t WAIT, Bring IT!!!!!!
Myself Jeanette Maynes and my good friend Michelle Tayler (who is also crazy) will be taking part in the ‘TOUGH MUDDER’ event in Sydney on the 23rd of September this year.
“As you think, so shall you become.” – Bruce Lee
“I think I am drinking beer in an orange ‘Tough Mudder’ headband…!” – Jeanette Maynes
“Don’t Limit your Challenges – Challenge your Limits…!” – Michelle Tayler
This will be one of our biggest challenges to date and we are looking for support and sponsorship to help us complete our task! For more information and to pledge your alliance to our cause and receive maximum exposure for your business please click HERE!! … More info here also!
PROBABLY THE TOUGHEST EVENT ON THE PLANET – Tough Mudder events are hardcore 20 km-long obstacle courses designed by British Special Forces to test your all around strength, stamina, mental grit, and camaraderie. With the most innovative courses and half a million inspiring participants, Tough Mudder is the premier adventure challenge series in the world.You cannot complete a Tough Mudder course alone.
To get through mud, fire, ice-water, and 10,000 volts of electricity you’ll need teammates to pick you up when your spirits dip. To get over 3 m walls and through underground mud tunnels, you’ll need teammates to give you a boost and a push. Tough Mudders are team players who make sure no one gets left behind. To that end, all Mudders are expected to uphold our ideals and exhibit teamwork and camaraderie both on the course and off it. All participants are asked to join us in reciting the Tough Mudder pledge before starting each event.As a Tough Mudder I pledge that:
- I understand that Tough Mudder is not a race but a challenge.
- I put teamwork and camaraderie before my course time.
- I do not whine – kids whine.
- I help my fellow Mudders complete the course.
- I overcome all fears..
Any support will be gratefully appreciated!!!
A huge thank you to the 24HR GYM who has donated $200 towards our entry tickets!! We will be completing alot of our intense training at the gym over the next few weeks …. only the best gym, support and fitness equipment in town will do for us girls!!

Yesterday I competed in my second ever official Noosa Half Marathon.
I went with my good friend Cheryl who was competing in her first ever 10km run that I had trained her for.
Cheryl went Sensational! She smashed over 13mins off her training time which she had only ever run 7.5km of and ran the whole course nonstop with a PB of 1:10:24 mins!! Well done Cheryl, I’m very proud of you, especially from someone who once said, “I’m NOT running a step!” It’s Fantastic to see someone take not only their fitness but their MIND to another extraordinary level!
I also smashed out a 21km PB of 1:59:24 mins!!! I took 4:11mins of my old PB and did what I set out to do which was crack the 2hrs. Results here.
Cheryl being a massage therapist was awesome and gave me a quick rub down before the race to warm up my muscles and being on a 10 day Detox I was hoping to be in prime form!
I started out strong and felt it! But I was disappointed when my right knee went ( patellofemoral pain syndrome ) at the 13km mark and the Nurophen I had down my bra in case this happened was not there!! OMG! I had to run the last 8km in extreme pain which slowed me right down by 30+ seconds per km.
But at least I still achieved my goal of cracking 2hrs, which is Excellent, even if I could have taken a couple more minutes off (there’s always next year) and being on Day 6 of my Detox, I can’t celebrate for 4 more days LOL.
We stayed at the Sheraton Noosa and enjoyed luxury and excellent service from the staff, porters and chauffeurs and enjoyed a sauna and spa, great for our bodies! We also just stepped straight out of room to the start of the race, talk about convenience!
Another OUTSTANDING weekend of goal achieving, thanks Cheryl, Awesome Work! x
I started walking 10km, twice weekly with Jeanette Maynes. I was getting quite breathless at times, just doing this at a brisk pace. It took me about 1:55 mins to complete.
I loved walking, as I could take in glimpses of our Hervey Bay beach, and started to feel more motivated. I had no intentions at this stage, of running however, as I thought I didn’t have it in me to run anymore. I was into Zumba, Tai Bo, Dancing, but no running.
I had not done any running, in at least 20 years!
Over a period of about 1month , I gradually decreased my walking time.. I noticed that the labored breathing I had begun with, was disappearing, and that my lung capacity was improving. After about a month and a half, Jeanette had gone on a weeks trip, and I wondered what it would feel like to run. I was curious to see if I still could run. So, I very hesitantly tried to run 200m. Yes. I could do it, even though the lungs didn’t like it much. I tried a couple of 200’s together. Now, I really felt my lungs working!
When Jeanette and I resumed walking together, I let slip that I had tried “the running thing”. Well, that was it. Jeanette, started to increase our walks to running time. She quickly increased the 200m to 500m, even though I though “this was really pushing it”. Then up again to 2 x 500m. The next week it was 1 x 500m and 1 x 1km. The next 1 x 2km. Over a period of about 2 months, we increased this to a 7.5kms running which left 2.5km to walk. I was so amazed, as I felt the “block” in my lungs lift, and felt myself getting stronger.
Jeanette, was always encouraging, and gave me some positive “self talk”, which I keep using every time I run. This keeps me focused when my body tries to tell me “I can’t do it”. When I really was ready to stop on a few occasions, Jeanette made me push through it. I’m so glad she did this, as otherwise I don’t think I would have made it to the next level especially when I ran 10km nonstop in 1:10:24 hr at Noosa on the weekend.
In the beginning, I didn’t think I was fit enough or strong enough to run. I also believed you had to have a certain physique to be a runner, Thanks to Jeanettes’ coaching, I now know I’m made of tough stuff and have thrown away those preconceived negative thoughts about running. Besides feeling fitter, trimming down and breathing better, running has also enabled me to think of other areas of my life, and ask “what more am I capable of?” A big THANKYOU to Jeanette!
Cheryl Virgo – 8th May 2012
Last weekend I participated in one of the most amazing experiences of my life, ‘Unleash The Power Within’, a 4 day seminar with Tony Robbins in Sydney.
The main reason of attending was to firewalk which we did on the first day on coals between 1,200 and 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit. I didn’t feel any heat what so ever, must of had my mind focused!
From then on what happened was so profound.
I completely reprogrammed my mind and have removed negative experiences from my life / childhood and created a new timeline.
I realised I was living my life with excellent standards but to reach the next level in life you must have ‘OUTSTANDING’ Standards which is only a 2mm gap you need to close. This will be beneficial in all aspects of my life especially my business.
On the last day we heard about nutrition which I also learnt some very profound new information and found this extremely interesting as I am studying to be a personal trainer.
I am now on day 7 of a DETOX Tony put us on and am loving it!!! No alcohol, caffeine and an alkaline diet + a few other new healthy & positive habits to incorporate.
This seminar was such a precious gift I gave to myself, the information was priceless and the results truly invaluable!!
Thank you Tony, you certainly did create value and more than expected!!!
Please, please, please start teaching your program in schools you could revolutionise the world even more by programming correct mind, body and nutritional habits from an early age!!!
Some other information I learnt from my notes:
- Emotion is created by Motion.
- Put yourself in a PEAK STATE!
- Who you spend life with is who you become.
- People lives are a direct reflection of the expectations of their peer group.
- Find a peer group that has higher expectations that your own.
- Find a team that is going to challenge you.
- Every single person has 2 primary fears: 1. You are not good enough 2. You won’t be loved
- The only thing that stops you getting what you want is the story you tell yourself.
- Problems & Happiness have no relationship.
- Wire yourself for certaintly and you will find the skills
- We live what we hold in out subconscious
- Secret to wealth and happiness; to be a team player
- Treat people well who treat your poorly
- Life is about LOVE
- Proximity is Power!
- “If I can’t, then I MUST!”
- The secret of life, STANDARDS!
- Want to change your life then raise your standards.
- Raise your standards means turns your shoulds into musts.
- Compete with yourself.
- See things completed in your mind first.
- How much you earn or who you are in a relationship with comes down to your beliefs or values.
- Our rules & values can make it impossible to feel good.
- More joy = less or better rules
- When you are grateful there is no anger or fear.
- The secret to HAPPINESS is PROGRESS!
- I am not what I eat, I am what I digest & assimilate.
- 5mins of anger suppresses your immune system for 6-7hours
- Stress is the basis of what makes the body break down.
If you want to know the tools and strategies for an OUTSTANDING LIFE, book your spot for the 2013 seminar, it will change your life forever!!!! Click here to book!
- Learn the secret to peak performance that Anthony Robbins has used to transform the world’s elite athletes, entertainers, and business leaders.
- Discover how to break the unconscious fears that are holding you back.
- Storm across a bed of hot coals between 1,200 and 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit. (You don’t have to, but you’ll want to!) Once you start doing the impossible (or at least what you thought was impossible), you can conquer the other ﬁres of your life with ease.
…You’ll test and amaze yourself. But, most of all… you’ll grow.
Letter to the Editor (Fraser Coast Chronicle) in Full:
Having lived in Hervey Bay for nearly 34 years and owned and operated Design House, a successful graphic and website design and marketing business for over seven years, I’ve witnessed the Fraser Coast go from THRIVE to complete Nose Dive!
We need Clear Vision! New Ideas! Positive Energy! Excitement! Fresh Enthusiasm! Creativity! Leadership! … from a Mayor.
Don’t get too excited about going shopping or having a meal out as a large proportion of the businesses I thought were strong have had to shut up shop. You only have to take a scenic drive down the Esplanade to see this. Working in the business and marketing industry, I feel we should create opportunities and provide seminars to train and educate our local businesses. Something as simple as a business plan can clearly forecast whether a business is viable or not.
Strong and feasible businesses create local employment.
Is it a matter of play spot the tourist nowadays?
Hervey Bay used to be the place to be!
Where are all the promotions for what we have to offer on the Fraser Coast for locals, interstate and overseas visitors?
I know we have Staycations but is this really working? There are only a handful of businesses registered on the website when there are thousands of businesses on the Fraser Coast? What are the figures? Are our tourist attractions and tours affordable?
People are doing it tough with everything going up except for our wages or senior pensions.
Why are we not promoting regional ‘package deals’ including and combining accommodation, meals, restaurants, free outings suggestions and a tour for a set fee, saving our tourists heaps of dollars and doing the hard work of planning for them?
When I was a teenager I briefly moved to Brisbane for work and entertainment as there was certainly none here for those under 18! From what I can see twenty years on, not much has changed and some of our teenagers are either bored, unemployed, leaving, drinking in the parks or sadly resorting to crime and violence. Let’s get them engaged, involved, trained with new skills, excited about life plus have more supervised youth recreational facilities. I started working at 14 and a half and feel as a teenager it is important to be working whilst still at school and learning life skills, not idle.
Upon leaving school, I couldn’t study my field of interest – graphic design here at the TAFE or University and twenty years on there is still not that option. A high majority of our locals whether younger or mature aged students are fortunate to be highly creative, let’s see what courses we can offer to keep them local.
I understand that current Councillors may have done their best to keep rates low, as this affects them also, but perhaps we could make changes within the operational budget?
A staffing review could ensure staff positions are achieving KPI’s and outputs, benchmarking the outputs and ensure that staff provide input into making their departments continue to run better, more efficiently, economically and are achieving results.
When rates go up so does rent, putting our residents under financial and emotional stress.
I personally know thousands of dollars have been wasted by Council on their advertising and marketing with jobs going outside the Fraser Coast and not a single local designer or printer being offered the opportunity to quote on tenders. By obtaining a professional opinion in this area the Council could save a fortune! How many other industries does this happen to?
Where are direct flights for all the mine workers, business people and tourists eg. to Gladstone, Rockhampton, Townsville or Cairns? What is the current figures and research? Let’s get to our destinations quicker, with less fatigue and road causalities. One could then spend that time with loved ones plus be home to spend your money locally. Why no local mining skills training?
More consideration needs to be given to community safety through improving partnerships with law enforcement agencies and the community. There is a definite need to lobby State Government for increased Police numbers for our safety and theirs.
Why are our severely ill and elderly residents travelling for treatment to other towns or even Brisbane?
We should be making life as comfortable and affordable as possible for these unwell people and have the latest technology medical machines and resources local, if possible.
Let’s start some proactive regular large scale community fortnightly or monthly events targeting fitness, fun and wellbeing while promoting a positive mind and healthy lifestyle!
“Strong Mind, Strong Body!”
Time to start preventing illness, obesity and unnecessary health issues!
Our health professionals do a magnificent job so let’s not make them responsible for us. Instead as members of the community let’s be proactive and help to take the pressure off them by having excellent health and fitness!
Sadly there are many VICTIMS within any community (children, women and men) whether it be from sexual assault and molestation, domestic violence, victims of crimes, bullying, alcohol or substance abuse, depression, divorce, separation, abandonment etc.
Let’s support, promote and facilitate recovery, healing, counselling, education, growth, inclusion and the biggie ‘Self Love’! Make people aware they are not alone, people do care, healing is achievable and enable these people to become SURVIVORS and have confidence within themselves and the community.
Until we love ourselves we are unable to love others.
I understand all these issues are not at local government level but none the less they need to be addressed and I feel the local, state and federal members should be working together on achieving the same common community GOALS!
Please note I strongly say GOALS; something that is specific, measureable, action based, realistic, time bound, executed and recorded.
Unless the boys club are going to hit me with some ‘WOW FACTOR’ Mayoral GOALS not policies, I may have to run myself!
My life motto…’Failure is NOT an Option!’
What a way to start 2012 with a 14 day road trip to Darwin visiting current and making new clients & friends! Hervey Bay, Mackay, Cairns, Townsville, Mt Isa, Tennant Creek, Adelaide River then Darwin!
The picture to the right was taken when we hit the 130km section of the Barkley Highway in the Northern Territory – Jeanette “Queen of the Desert!”
My friend Jackie that I used to work with at the Casuarina Club in Darwin was visiting her parents on the Sunshine Coast for Christmas and we thought what a perfect opportunity for me to join her for a road trip back to Adelaide River where she is a teacher.
And so the fun had begun!!! I really had the time of my life and may need to make this an annual event! If you really want to see our beautiful country hit the highway!
Thank you Jackie for the awesome company, adventure and goal setting!!! xoxoxo
Awesome to see Lee and her family in Cairns with some amazing photography being taken by herself (One Little Picture) and Jackie on our adventures. They are both very talented with their SLR camera’s!!!
It was fantastic to see my friend Helen in Adelaide River also and her gorgeous children plus use the secret gym.
It was also sensational to catch up with all my old friends and work colleagues from The Casuarina Club (Lucy, Jackie, Julie-Anne & myself the original Rockette’s from 10 years ago! + Kimmy, Tommy & Fred!) xoxo
Also a big thank you to everyone for their hospitality on the trip, without the support crew this trip would not have been such a smooth and outrageous adventure!

Last weekend I had an awesome time away with my friend Cheryl and her twin daughters. We went on a half day horse trail ride that included morning tea and lunch (kangaroo) followed by a swim in the pool. I rode Matilda. We stayed overnight on the farm in the lodge and the girls slept outside in swags. We cooked a BBQ dinner and breakfast plus also enjoyed marshmallows at our bon fire with a couple of beers. More info on Giddee Up Horse rides here.
On the way home we dropped in the Fraser Coast Sporting Clays Shooting Club to fire off a few rounds at their open day. It was great fun and I hit 4 targets out of about 9 shots so that wasn’t too bad for my first ever go. Club website here.
OMG I would be SO lost without my Polar FT7 Heart Rate Monitor!
