Hi, I’m Christine Westbury and this is my site!
To be honest, this site is a bit of an evolving piece of work, something that was set up as a bit of fun while I enjoy being a Mum to my two kiddos; Isabella and Cooper.
My background is in Marketing, having completed a Bachelor in Commerce and Administration majoring in Marketing & Management. While at University and for a few years after, I developed a ballroom and latin dance studio, mainly through online marketing methods, which saw me and a couple of teachers train around 150 clients a week. Full time work took over, and the night time dance lessons weren’t supportive of my new post Uni/married life (house to renovate/full time work/puppy/you know the drill!), so I moved into Agency Marketing. A few years down the track and I’d worked in Agency, and Client marketing, which envolved into Operations & Systems development. Developing franchise modules, CRM, website tools, and overarching company strategy.
Fast forward to 2012, we decided to start a family. Isabella was born August 2013.
After Isabella was born I put on a decent amount of weight, this is when I was introduced to the barbell, weights and my personal trainer. Body fat was 37%, but it quickly came down, and my new lifestyle kick started. Whole foods, sugar free and gluten free (not all the time though – who am I kidding!)
2015 we were pregnant with our second child – this time a boy. Having gained a decent amount of weight last pregnancy, and not wanting to waste all of my hard work at the gym away, I continued to train (modified) throughout my pregnancy. It was an amazing journey, in which I learnt so much about my body.
Which brings us to today, who knows where the future will take us and our little family. Things I know for certain that will feature are; exercise (just have to repair my abdominals before getting back into it); travel (always good to have trips booked to look forward to); good wholesome food (love trying new foods and nourishing our bodies); work (just unsure as to what form at this stage – hey, Cooper’s only a few weeks old!); and lots of fun, laughter, family time and LOVE.
I look forward to seeing where this project takes us
