Oh hi there,

Sweaty Pals has evolved!

What was once a somewhat niche publication where people could learn to exercise and eat well to live better etc, is now more a mixed bag of those things, but life and other nonsense as well. When once Sweaty Pals was about getting sweaty in the gym, is now also about life and other things that cause the sweat. Work things? Yep. Dreaded night sweats from Peri/Meno? Definitely. Family driving you to distraction? That too.

Why the change?

Boredom, mainly. I honestly got so fed up of writing the same old dross to entice people into exercise, that I just couldn’t do it anymore. I love writing, and I know some of you like it too. But as a person with ADHD, dipping my hands into a vat of boiling hot oil would be more enticing to me than writing a newsletter about a topic I just didn’t love anymore.

Same name. Some fitness stuff. Some food stuff. A lot more other stuff. Wherever the breeze blows, that’s what it’ll be.

How it works

I will write when I feel I have something to say and as a subscriber you will get my emails straight to your inbox. If you don’t want to subscribe, you can just bookmark the link sweatypals.nz and and check back whenever you feel the urge. But I’m hoping getting an email about a subject matter you’re might be mildly interested in might be ok? Give it a go and see.

Getting in touch

I’d love to hear from you. I’ve switched on the chat function for this page which I’m not wholly sure about, but it’s there. Or you can reach me easily via email lou@sweatypals.nz or by replying to an email from the newsletter in your inbox.

I do hope you enjoy this new direction. Perhaps give it a try and see if it fits.

Lou xx
