The Free Fat Loss Seminar

fat loss

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!

stob being a bitch

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?

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?”

How Was Your Day Love?

how was your day, family life

Living as a one income family has its perks and perils. There was a time where it was the norm for the husband to be the sole bread winner. I remember the days where it was expected for a woman to be a housewife. Women stayed home to care for their babies and to be there when their older children arrived from school. Housewives have been portrayed in the media as pretty and well-groomed in the past. They always had perfect manners and greeted their husbands with; How was your day love? I mostly remember this in films such as Bewitched and Happy Days. Yes those are really old films but I loved Continue reading “How Was Your Day Love?”

My Fitness Journey – Monday 14 August, 2017

Body Image, Childhood, Fitness Journey

I vaguely remember a stage in my life when I wasn’t overweight. I dare say I was even skinny. It was during my very early childhood {see above image}.  I even have photos of me in a bikini posing in a cute little girl body. I appear to have a little baby fat, but that’s considered cute. Whenever I look at this photo I kind of can’t believe it was me. Because from about grade 3 – 8 or 9 years of age – all I remember is being fat. Yes I’m not going to sugar coat it in this online journal. I was and I still am fat. I’ve been through a few different trials of dieting Continue reading “My Fitness Journey – Monday 14 August, 2017”
