Round 3. 2011. Preseason task #1. Introduce yourself

Can you believe it has been a year since I first joined 12wbt?

I can't even imagine how I felt when I began. Desperate I think. I was a mess.
I don't think I even realised just how shocking my health was.
Morbidly obese. Sad. Size 18-20. Chronically tired.
And exercise. HA. I would tell you I walked ... but the reality ... I was too tired to move most afternoons.

I am so so grateful that I am not introducing that me to you this round.
This is me. The better version of me.
The best version of myself I can be!

My name is Kath. I am a mum, a wife, a daughter, a friend, a nurse.
I am 37 ... and live in a little country town in Qld.
I have the best supporters in the world!

I am a learning to runner, and I have a BHAG (big huge audacious goal) - 12 fun runs in 12 months.

I am learning I am stronger than I knew I could be.

I still have weight to lose. But for some reason, the numbers don't seem to matter as much anymore.

I still struggle at times with training ... but I also am learning how amazing it makes me feel.
I still struggle with food at times. But I am having more wins than losses.

My greatest 12wbt achievement? Inspiring my little girl. Fit and healthy is what she knows.

This round is for me - to learn how strong I can be.
This round I am going to smash lean and strong.

And I can't wait!

So I'm Kath . Oh and I blog a bit too. ;)
Can't wait to share round 3 with you!

It's going to be a rockstar way to see out the year!!
