The Struggle Is Real, But It’s Worth It

The Struggle is Real, Fitness, Fitmum, #fitcurvymummy

There is so much going on in my head at the moment. I’ve been on this health journey since May 2017. There have been plenty of ups and downs. During the last month I’ve struggled with the balancing act that is Motherhood and everything else I want in my life. Yes, the struggle is real. After a whole lot of contemplation I came back to how deeply I feel about putting my family first. Continue reading “The Struggle Is Real, But It’s Worth It”

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”

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!”

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?”

My Fitness Journey Begins Again

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 Begins Again”
