Make a plan

I saw this quote on Instagram the other day and shared it. It's so true, for everything! Yesterday I wrote about my nutrition and fitness regime and the fact is I know plan my meals and my activity, it's planned and written down so I stick to it...more or less. How do I address things…

What gets measured gets managed.

A friend suggested that maybe I posted this when I'm further into my weightloss journey, however the purpose and meaning of the post would be lost then and if I considered it that way then I'm losing sight of what the man who's inspired me to write this has taught me. It's not a weightloss…

3 years ago today.

3 years ago today I had what I never realised would be my last ever conversation with my Dad. I skipped off for a picnic with a friend and returned home that evening to him in resuscitation wearing an oxygen mask joking to me that I shouldn't worry because he might be dead tomorrow, two…

Yes I am amazing!

Over the past year people have told me I'm doing great, that I'm amazing, a great mum doing a great job, fabulous, strong, you name it, I've been told it. These comments have often made me feel uncomfortable, I've brushed them off and I've avoided listening to them and politely said thank you and that…

More than just a garden.

I seem to keep saying this, that as I do things it's more than the activity or event that I've experienced. It was more than a tough mudder, more than doing up my garden, more than a girls weekend away, because these experiences are big steps forward in how I'm shaping my new life and…

Looking you in the eye.

In someways this is a hard one to write, more because I don't like to share the finer details of things sometimes and I need to tread carefully to ensure I don't with this post. Why do I do that? Well because my blog isn't about people, it's about me, it's about how I'm learning…

40 Tough Mudders…

Ok no the title isn't an indication that I'm doing 40 tough mudders! However I've done one this weekend, the 5k tough mudder and I bloody loved it. It was hard and yes a couple of the obstacles I skipped but I did it, I completed the whole thing and despite major apprehension before hand,…

Superbaby

My daughter is my superhero. If it weren't for her I wouldn't be who I am and quite literally she's saved my life. Being a single mum is hard work, becoming one isn't an easy decision. I was married and had made conscious decision with my husband to have a daughter but it was that…

Never really alone.

Last night someone shared this blog about how lonely motherhood can be and it's true it's sometimes one of the loneliest and hardest jobs you'll ever do and yet we're all afraid to admit this, as of saying it out loud means we're a terrible mother that doesn't love our child when actually the cause…
