Hi everyone – My name is Trisha.
I am a German Mother of two beautiful young children living in Australia.
Currently, we are still on a temporary visa. The permanent residency application is submitted since August 2018 and a waiting game. So frustrating sometimes when you don’t know what’s going to happen. I m a very organised person who likes to be in control of things, so it’s something I m learning now – to go with what life throws at you and to make the best out of it.
I decided to start a Healthy Lifestyle Blog, because I want to share my journey with you all. I want to share with you what I m learning and what is helping me to become a better and healthier version of myself.
Obviously, life isn’t easy and we all have a part (or many parts) in life that will challenge us. Going through a hard time or hard phase in your life, can drown you in unhappiness, feeling lonely, angry, sad or unloved. However, you are in control of how you react to these challenges!
There was a moment in my life, when I decided to take responsibility for my own happiness. I decided it’s up to me to be happy and not to wait for someone to make me happy or to wait for life and my circumstances to make me happy. It’s me who can change things when I want to.
And the minute I changed my approach, my mood changed and I became more positive. I discovered things that helped me to be happy and positive! It’s YOU who is in control of your own happiness!
After having my two children (2015 and 2018) my approach to life changed. I want to be a better role model for my children. Only because my childhood wasn’t the healthiest, doesn’t mean they should go through the same. They deserve the best! They deserve to see what’s healthy and adapt this into their lives! I want them to grow up in a healthy way – mentally and physically.
Through my Healthy Lifestyle Blog I want to share my knowledge and positive vibe with you! I want to support you to become a better version of yourself – a healthier and fitter you – mentally and physically!
A little background to myself:
After year 13 at school in Germany, I did my training as a bank clerk. Straight after, I started my first travel to Australia as a backpacker in 2009. I had worked in various backpacker jobs and local short term jobs, such as being a waitress, motel and kitchen helper and all sorts of farming jobs.
Travelling as a backpacker has definitely helped me grow as person. I have learnt so much more about myself, my strengths and weaknesses. Moreover, I have learnt more about other cultures. I believe it is important to get to know other cultures to also understand more about the world and yourself.
Then, I studied my Diploma of Nursing in Australia (2011-2013), followed by the RN qualification in Germany (2013-2015). However, coming back to Australia in 2016 my RN didn’t get recognised, so I became an EN. Yes I m a nurse, I always wanted to be there for others and help others.
In time, I picked up some other roles at the facility I am currently working at, such as the role of a Quality Coordinator. It is an amazing role for me, because it requires excellent time management and organisational skills, which I so love as well!
I completed some additional qualifications along the way to get the knowledge and be qualified for my other roles: Certificate III in Business Management, Cert IV in WHS and a Return to Work Coordinator course.
With my determination to change my life into a healthier life, I started studying “personal trainer” in January 2019 and will hopefully complete my course by January 2020. I would like to help others to become a healthier, fitter and happier person.
I have registered with Fitness Australia as a Personal Trainer student and I m keen to continue my membership with them once I m a fully qualified PT and will work within my scope of practice.
Furthermore, I have enrolled into a Diploma of Human Nutrition in August 2019. Nutrition has always interested me since I had to deal with an eating disorder when I was a teenager.
Being a nurse, Personal Trainer and Nutrition Coach provides me with all the required skills and knowledge to support YOU on YOUR healthy journey!
So, very exciting times ahead.. watch this space 😊🌈
