Yarrawonga – Life by the Lake

We love our little family holidays. So far we have kept to short stays in places we can drive to. We’ve been fortunate to have taken our dogs a few times as well. This time as they are both no longer with us anymore it was very different. Our recent stay at the Yarrawonga-Mulwala Big 4 Holiday Park was the first short getaway without them in our lives. But it was still amazing. Visiting places in the Murray Region always helps us to be at peace with Continue reading “Yarrawonga – Life by the Lake”

Positive Mind = Positive Energy = Positive Results

Positive Mind

Consistency is the key to a lot of things for success in whatever it is you strive for. However, some life events cannot be predicted and can cause the balance you once had to fall out of place. My writing paused for a little while due to a change that I was and wasn’t expecting at the same time. The approach I recently developed to own a positive mind took two steps back. I even felt like quitting something. No, it wasn’t the quest for my Curvy Transformation. It Continue reading “Positive Mind = Positive Energy = Positive Results”

The Free Fat Loss Seminar

Last week I pushed myself out of my comfort zone. I went out. No not for a big night out. I’m not sure how I’ll survive one of those at this stage. My outing was to a Free Fat Loss Seminar. I stalked my friend’s Facebook page as I always do and saw a link she was tagged in for this event. It was at going to be at this gorgeous little gym she has been attending for just over a year now. Evolving Physiques is co-owned and operated by two amazing people, Patrick Hong and Hilal Husseyin. With my current Stay at Home Mum status I’m being extra cautious with my spending. There is an informal budget that my husband and I Continue reading “The Free Fat Loss Seminar”

Finding Myself Again After Becoming a Mother

finding myself, motherhood

During my childhood and adolescent years I was surrounded by a lot of stronger personalities. I was the youngest of a large family. Our cultural background encouraged girls to have a calm and ladylike demeanor. Therefore my upbringing instigated a foundation for a timid and shy personality. I never actively tried finding myself and it didn’t occur until my late 20s. I was single with no prospects of the future I always dreamed of. But one day I woke up to Continue reading “Finding Myself Again After Becoming a Mother”

Stop Being a Bitch Revolution!

Last week I wrote about basically feeling sorry for myself. I was feeling like I was failing and not getting anywhere with my fitness journey. I drowned myself in my negative emotions and I let them drag me down. The messages and comments I received were supportive and made me remember that I’m not alone. My husband had listened to the complaints and put up with me. Plus, he was very careful with his responses because he could tell how sensitive I had become. The week passed and I wrote about it all. The comments and support kept flowing at me. I knew people would relate to what I was going through. Then I got the call I wasn’t expecting. It was the call that I Continue reading “Stop Being a Bitch Revolution!”

Shine Bright Mama Project – Friday Feature with Curvy Mummy

self-care

Self-care is something that is so easily put aside by women and the focus is rather set on their maternal instinct to care for others. I myself let this happen when I became a mother. How about you? I never thought about turning to others for guidance or just to point me in the direction of somewhere where I could learn about looking after myself. I tried making a new beginning of self-care when I had my second boy. But in doing it on my own I found myself trying to fit it in with everything else. When I came across Lisa Godlee’s Shine Bright Mama Project on Instagram I started learning so much more. One of the most important points I am now aware of is the importance of putting me first. I now Continue reading “Shine Bright Mama Project – Friday Feature with Curvy Mummy”

The Curvy Mummy Guide to Making Mum Friends – Part Two

mum friends

When writing about making mum friends thus far I’ve focused mostly on the struggle I’ve experienced. Today I’m writing about getting over the hurdle that we create for ourselves. Exactly! We create the hurdle. Making mum friends is exactly like making friends of any sort. As mothers we’ve given it a different title and talked about how hard it is to achieve. But do we talk about why and what makes it hard? What or who are mum friends? Are they your play date buddies because they have children the same age as yours? Is your mum friends’ companionship convenient because they live in the same town as you Continue reading “The Curvy Mummy Guide to Making Mum Friends – Part Two”

Questioning Myself, Can I Really Do This?

questioing myself, muffin top

The past week has been one where I wish I could’ve changed so much. My mood has been awful. I have the determination to succeed still. But I’m not implementing it. My will to continue with this fitness journey is there but only just hanging by a thread. So what about motivation? It’s there, but certainly not as much as I know I need it to be. I’m questioning myself, can I really do this? I’m not proud to tell you right now that I’m experiencing a strong sense of self-doubt. Continue reading “Questioning Myself, Can I Really Do This?”
