About Pam…


I love the gym, I’m a bit of a “gym junkie”…

That’s my jam.


Hi,

My name is Pam, I’m a Nutritionist and Keto Coach.

Here’s a little bit about myself…

My intro into keto was thanks to working out

I have always been keen on keeping healthy and staying fit. For several years before I had my daughter I was at the gym five times a week lifting weights for an hour then doing an aerobics class – do they even do aerobics classes anymore?

Over the years, I’ve had breaks from working out here and there but it’s always been there in the background waiting for me.

I am back in the gym pretty much 4 days a week now. I lift weights three to four days a week for around 45 minutes, I include a little HIIT in there to get the Growth Hormones up and running.

It was through googling new weight training ideas that I stumbled across keto on some YouTube channels. Somehow, I can’t remember how it came about but I landed on some YouTubes with Leanne Vogel, Healthful Persuit – She doesn’t know it but she has me hooked on keto. Never say never, but I reckon I will stick with keto for the rest of my life, even though I throw in a bit of the “Setpoint” diet, I don’t do it to the letter, however I have read Jonathan Bailor’s book it was very interesting and made a lot of sense so I have been trying it on for size, so far, nothing is happening yet, it’s not like I have a huge amount of weight to lose, no insulin resistance or any other problems like that, I just like the idea of looking after myself in the best possible way. I have been having green smoothies with no protein or fat in them in the mornings that I choose not to fast, just to make sure I am getting plenty of green leafy vegetables in. If I feel a bit peckish around 1 or 2 in the afternoon I will make another “meal” smoothie – greens with protein and fat included.

I have these green, leafy smoothies with my eggs for breakfast sometimes so I am getting my “SANE” (akronym for Satiety – Agressive – Nutrition – Efficiency) meal in there (the protein and fats are in the eggs, added veggies in the eggs also at times. Have you ever had green scrambled eggs? I whizz up some greens with a tiny bit of water and will mix that in with my eggs. Looks wrong but tastes right.

A little science in the mix

I love researching topics that interest me, such as all things Keto, Intermittent Fasting, Grounding, Healthy Whole Food Recipes, Nutrition, Weight Training, Anti Ageing and longevity.

I love the Ketogenic lifestyle, the way it makes me feel – no more brain fog, my energy is through the roof and I feel so content, grateful and happy in my body. Include I.F. and I’m really LIT!

Bucking Bronco!

In 2016 I was training one of my young Quarter Horses, she had the disposition to want to spook at the most unlikely of times. I’d just finished the training sesson with her when my foot scrubbed along the railing of the arena fence. Surprisingly, she wasn’t too concerned that my foot had made a noise on the fence and then pushed up hard against her side.

My foot was jammed in behind the post and the fillies side, this cued her to move her hip away from the rail but she pushed her chest into the rails as her hip swung away. The pressure she had put on the railing with her front end made a huge C. R. A. C. K. ! She, for a moment was fine, however, the colt I had tied up under a tree not too far away virtually tucked himself inside out, going off like a banchie!

That was the straw that broke the camels back, my filly followed suit, went just as bolistic as the colt!

Next thing I know I’m in the back of an ambulance drugged up to the 9’s being taken to hospital with 8 broken ribs a punctured lung
and a fractured vertebrae.

I did manage to crawl to my phone that thankfully was on the ground behind a post in the shade so I didn’t have to get up. I rang my husband first who I remember told me off for not ringing an ambulance!

Lying there in the ambo when my husband appeared at the door, we looked at eachother and together we both “Never Again!”

Never a truer word was said – two words actually.

Because of this accident and other traumatising things that happened like my husband having a bout of “Farmers Lung” which threw his heart into fibrilation. He was in a bad way for a few months before my little visit to hospital. That’s when I started experiencing terrible anxiety, I think I was suffering from andrenal fatigue, burning the candle at both ends for a couple of years. The anxiety hung around for 18 months until I discovered keto, now I’m just lit!

I’m here to help!

I love helping people on their journey to a healthier Ketogenic lifestyle.

Keto is an easy way of eating it’s basically eating whole, real foods, grass fed and preferably finished meat and poultry and organic where possible. Wild, caught fish – with a lot of dark green, leafy, organic, nutrient dense veggies.

There is definitely more to keto it’s not just about the food – whole, nutrient dense food should be up the top of the list for sure.

It’s really not a difficult journey though. If you treasure your health, who wouldn’t give it a crack!

If you are looking for a little guidance in the right direction contact me with some coaching in mind I can be contacted here.

A true gypsy

Born In Northern Ireland, I am a true gypsy at heart, my husband, myself and our little Jack Russell – “Russell” lol, I’m not stuttering. Our newest addition “Doug”, he is a little Jack Russell Puppy I got for Christmas 2018. Doug is only 10 weeks old as I write this, and a real terrorist, but we love him, he has brought a lot of laughter with him the antics he gets up to and such a happy personality! The four of us are full-time travellers,  travelling this beautiful country of ours, Australia.

We started our new journey roughly around 17 months after I broke my ribs, so that was August, 2017.

We sold the house bought a Winnebago with all the bells and whistles. It’s a 30′ jigger with a couple of push outs, it sleeps 7 people. It’s got all the comforts of home!

Our Home on the road

With the tinny and jimby.

What I love most is the freedom of not being tied down to one place, being able to see all the beautiful things Australia has to offer one of those being some true, gritty, salt of the earth people with some awesome life stories.

We love to fish and you will usually find us out on the ocean or up a river in our tinny on a daily basis reeling in all sorts of fish or seeing some mighty big Salties (crocs) that are sometimes bigger than our boat!

We do a lot of sightseeing in our little Suzuki “Jimby”. It’s such an awesome life we live.

After retiring from training and showing, I now solely coach riders and their horses both remotely with extensive coaching via the net, I have some clients that for one reason or another can’t get to regular lessons or clinics so they love to get with me over the net and have their lessons remotely. I am proud to say that it’s working out really well for them and me. Along with travelling throughout Australia and New Zealand giving private individual lessons and group clinics. www.remotehorseridertraining.com

I have three favorite sayings, they are…

Don’t lose weight to get healthy, get healthy to lose weight.

The Keto Life is the KeyTo Life

Winners never quit, Quitters never win.
