Holiday eating turned into a 3 month long struggle

I’ve gone off track since spending 3 weeks in the GC of Australia where I drank everyday and pigged out on fat filled food! When I got home it was almost like I had become addicted to fast food and alcohol and continued on the high calorie diet up until today. Yes, today I am back in control, my will is at its peak and I am back in the gym. Its amazing to see a lot of the weight loss/lifestyle change bloggers have stuck it out and are achieving amazing results through share will power and discipline; you all motivate and inspire me. Be ready for daily updates. xoxox



Long time no post, but iv lost 13 kilos 😊, 7 more to go!

Yes, I browse my followers blogs daily. I think I spend way too much time on here. But if it gives me the motivation I need, then it’s good right? 💋

Still a long way to go but I’m finally seeing a change in my dreaded back fat

Makes me want to run
5 week progress. I know; not a big change, but I like to update my followers when ever I can. My stomach is getting flatter everyday but my back is still a big problem. The next 5 week progress report will definitely see reduced back fat. To all my followers who are on the journey with me, stay on track guys, we can do this :D … Remember - Nothing tastes as good as being fit feels.

Haven’t blogged in a few days

Iv been super sick, it’s freezing over here in NZ and iv been down with the flu all week. Went to the gym on Monday and I think it just made things worse. So, I’ve only worked out once this week 😞 it’s ok though, as I always say - iv accepted that its going to take me at least a yr, I doubt a wk off is going to affect that. I just need to watch what I eat. My eating habits have started to revert back which is a bit of a worry but I guess it’s part of the journey so iv just got to move through the motions and stay on track.

Technology - what would I do without you! 💋💜

I can’t imagine not having the Internet, these days all we have to do is know the exact words to google and we can find whatever we want, I don’t know how they did it back in the day when they had to rummage through books. Thank god for being born in the late 20th century!

“1. push yourself to get up before the rest of the world - start with 7am, then 6am, then 5:30am. go to the nearest hill with a big coat and a scarf and watch the sun rise.

2. push yourself to fall asleep earlier - start with 11pm, then 10pm, then 9pm. wake up in the morning feeling re-energized and comfortable.

3. erase processed food from your diet. start with no lollies, chips, biscuits, then erase pasta, rice, cereal, then bread. use the rule that if a child couldn’t identify what was in it, you don’t eat it.

4. get into the habit of cooking yourself a beautiful breakfast. fry tomatoes and mushrooms in real butter and garlic, fry an egg, slice up a fresh avocado and squirt way too much lemon on it. sit and eat it and do nothing else.

5. stretch. start by reaching for the sky as hard as you can, then trying to touch your toes. roll your head. stretch your fingers. stretch everything.

6. buy a 1L water bottle. start with pushing yourself to drink the whole thing in a day, then try drinking it twice.

7. buy a beautiful diary and a beautiful black pen. write down everything you do, including dinner dates, appointments, assignments, coffees, what you need to do that day. no detail is too small.

8. strip your bed of your sheets and empty your underwear draw into the washing machine. put a massive scoop of scented fabric softener in there and wash. make your bed in full.

9. organise your room. fold all your clothes (and bag what you don’t want), clean your mirror, your laptop, vacuum the floor. light a beautiful candle.

10. have a luxurious shower with your favourite music playing. wash your hair, scrub your body, brush your teeth. lather your whole body in moisturiser, get familiar with the part between your toes, your inner thighs, the back of your neck.

11. push yourself to go for a walk. take your headphones, go to the beach and walk. smile at strangers walking the other way and be surprised how many smile back. bring your dog and observe the dog’s behaviour. realise you can learn from your dog.

12. message old friends with personal jokes. reminisce. suggest a catch up soon, even if you don’t follow through. push yourself to follow through.

14. think long and hard about what interests you. crime? sex? boarding school? long-forgotten romance etiquette? find a book about it and read it. there is a book about literally everything.

15. become the person you would ideally fall in love with. let cars merge into your lane when driving. pay double for parking tickets and leave a second one in the machine. stick your tongue out at babies. compliment people on their cute clothes. challenge yourself to not ridicule anyone for a whole day. then two. then a week. walk with a straight posture. look people in the eye. ask people about their story. talk to acquaintances so they become friends.

16. lie in the sunshine. daydream about the life you would lead if failure wasn’t a thing. open your eyes. take small steps to make it happen for you.”
