Monday Musings #3

My week has been insane! Both fantastic insane and just plain crazy insane. Good crazy? I went to Melbourne with one of my best friends! It was absolutely brilliant. Full of buildings, beer, banter, food and exploring, with a bit of hipster spotting thrown in for good measure. A wonderful weekend, but at the worst…

Weightloss Wednesdays #2 (belated)

I wish I could be all positive and just say, “a loss is a loss”, but I was pretty disappointed by this week’s weigh in. I can’t expect everything to change instantly even though I have had one good week, and I’ve been trying really hard not to give up and slip up in my…

Monday Musings #2

The other day I got a hot chocolate and a shoulder to cry on, today…

Shout

I say words, so many, but they are softened because I loathe confrontation. Always honest, but always swaddled in sprinkles and laughter and joy. You have…

The Restart

Me! Today! This is not the start of my weight loss journey, it’s the restart. The start of my journey was in the middle of 2011 where I weighed in at 77.7kg. I’m a tiny, vertically challenged person, as in 1.58m tall, so carrying that weight around was not only exhausting, it was unhealthy and…
