So many women have a conversation with me that centres around the question
How can I find the time and the motivation to exercise consistently – so that I can lose weight? (Because things are starting to really get out of hand)
The difference between fitness and health and it might be a bit controversial to some people, and if you repeat this to your fitness fanatic friends they might get up in arms about this – but listen up because 1. I’m right. And 2. I’ve got the science to back it up.
You need holistic HEALTH to manage a healthy weight loss
You DON’T need Fitness for weight loss. And in actual fact, exercise has been proven to not actually be conducive for weight loss – especially long term management.
So I’m going to share with you the 3 main things you need to understand in order to
Yes it is possible, one of my clients went from training 90 minutes a day 6 times a week for 8 weeks and only lost 5 kilos in that time frame.
When we started working together on her holistic health she ended up losing 20 kilos over 12 weeks and she only ever exercised when she felt like it and because she wanted to. That was doing some recreational roller derby a couple of times a week and walking with her dogs every day.
Hundreds of my clients have successfully implemented this over the years and it’s what every woman who has escaped from the weight loss roller coaster has mastered – and you can do it too.
If you’re exhausted, feeling frumpy and frazzled let’s be honest, getting up at 5:30am before work to go to boot camp just isn’t anywhere near as appealing as pressing the snooze button and rolling over.
There just doesn’t seem to be enough hours in the day, not only that, but when you keep breaking this promise to yourself you’re more likely to beat yourself up and emotionally eat – which is only going to make the problem worse.
Health is a spectrum. If you’re sitting and breathing you’re expressing health you don’t cross an imaginary line where you’re suddenly HEALTHY vs UNHEALTHY. When you focus on your health across the emotional/mental/physical and spiritual aspects of health – your weight starts to recalibrate as a natural process.
If you’re fit – you can do things like pull ups, and run 5k – and return your heart rate back to resting at a faster rate – which are all good things to have – but they don’t necessarily affect your weight.
If you’ve been burning the candle at both ends you actually need high quality sleep for the metabolism of fat and your body overproduced hunger causing hormones lepton and ghrelin – you could be more susceptible to overeating, at the same time being less satisfied afterward.
So yes, if you’re exhausted, listen to your body, she needs more sleep – she doesn’t need bootcamp.
Most high performing women in business have a lot of stress and when it’s the kind of low level chronic anxiety that produces cortisol which is something that triggers that Starvation mode – making your body hoard fat, store it stubbornly ESPECIALLY around your stomach and slow down your metabolism.
Ever heard yourself say – well I’ve been to the gym today I can have this because I deserve it.
The cold hard truth is you’ll maybe burn 400 calories in a spin class which might make you exhausted for the rest of the day, craving sugar and caffeine and needing wine in the evening to wind down.
It is SO easy to grab something on the run because you’re starving and you’ve left it too long – and you’ll totally blow 600 calories or more with a cappuccino and a carrot cake so it’s like you might as well not have done it!
but you’ve still got the sore butt to prove you did it.
I know this sounds counter intuitive to you, and goes against everything you’ve ever been told about calories in and calories out – but I promise you if you just want to be healthy and happy – 6 times a week of bootcamp, circuits or exercising for over an hour a day when you’re stressed is only going to make the problem WORSE.
So the actual exercise to do that is super short and effective lies here in my Body Confidence Blueprint.
BUT what we’re really talking about here is improving your LIFE FITNESS – your ability to manage stress in a much healthier way so your body isn’t holding on to excess weight AND how to start saying NO and protecting your ME time more fiercely.

For anyone considering working with Bianca – it’s a real privilege to get Bianca’s brain and energy in your business. There’s a real level of detail and depth of mastery to her work that not many people have. The nuances of energy are so important, because if we’re not aligned, we’ll sabotage ourselves and not make the sales we can.
Even teaching mindset myself, I can’t see my on blind spots, and I loved working with Bianca who is really strong in her own work, who didn’t put me on a pedestal but could really hold space for me and keep me accountable. There was a time that I did have massive anxiety because I was trying to be the strong one for everyone else. But nobody was doing that for me and so, I just fell apart after a while. You can be strong and still need support – that’s how we thrive.
The way Bianca has amalgamated everything is just an incredible, magical process, it was really intriguing for me. The breakthroughs just keep coming – to experience her method, her intuition, it really is the magic of it – she really sees you.
You can move through the stuff, the trauma, without being retraumatised
Every time I work with Bianca I have made more money, I have freed up my life a lot more, I have bought more time back and I’ve deepened my relationships.
What I’ve achieved since is beyond what I had ever imagined. I entered into a new industry and built a multiple 7 figure business in the first 3 months, opened a second office within 6 months and within 1 year we’re at 8 figures.
If you’re thinking about working with Bianca I 200% recommend it.
I was looking for somebody who encouraged me to charge my worth, believe in that work and not be afraid of what I am worth. Many people look at my life and think I had already achieved a lot, but I wanted to expand and grow, and aside from my very supportive husband, I have found it difficult to find people who push me to be better than I am.
Bianca really held me accountable to my vision and helped me branch out from my property software consulting business into coaching. I went from $110/hour sessions to selling over $50,000 in programs within 8 weeks. It was the ease at which it happened that was the best part – I kept accidentally selling people!
12 months after working with Bianca I am booked out 4 weeks in advance. I’m about to hire 12 – 15 staff and I am on a rapid rise to 100k a month. I don’t think I would have gotten here this quickly if it weren’t for Bianca’s support, emotional clearing techniques and big picture questioning. Bianca held me to a higher vision than I had for myself and I’m thrilled with what I’ve achieved
Confidence. Certainty. Courage. Cashflow …
Bianca is the Queen at helping you create all of these (and fast, there’s no f’ing around).
Before working with Bianca I was super stressed and thought it was too hard and I didn’t have time to be successful AND have a healthy life balance. But I was surprised at how quickly the shifts happened. It’s been no coincidence to me that as a result of the new clarity of mind, I’ve actually doubled my business at the same time.
