Seizing moments

Sometimes simple words strike hardest.
During a fb chat my friend said to me "Everyone in your life is busy. If you don't make time for you - no one else will"

Damn she was right .

My biggest excuse in my 12wbt preseason was about everyone else. My daughter had dancing, hubby has to train. There is no time for me.

So now I'm being selfish . Claiming the space.

Today's victory . A 3.5k walk through allora while my daughter does art class.

The weather is magnificent and it is sooo flat!
I can't wait to come back to run it!

And it's as pretty as too!

The courage to start ... again?

Well the last few years have been a journey. I've had some amazing adventures and done some incredible things! Gold coast half marathon ... Warwick pentathrun (all five!) ... Glowworm trail half ..

But what I haven't done is lose the weight. In fact I've  gained.

And .. for a while you think you are doing ok. It's just a number right?

Well - that number is coming back to bite me. Health problems keep firing at me ... and to be honest most of them will be eased by getting that weight off. It isn't a game anymore ... this is life.

It's time to (wo)man up and get the job done.

This isn't about vanity - this is quality of life.

Hello 12wbt. Hello going back to basics. Hello giving up my caffeine overload. And hello to putting me first again.

Time to find that focus. And that courage again.

I know how sweet the rewards can be - it's time to hunt them down.

Claiming space - 12WBT chicken rice bowl

Every mother knows how easy it is to make food on the run, or eat what makes the kids happy.

But that isn't what fuels me.

Today I stopped and made space to prep lunch. Best part is it will make leftovers too!

12wbt chicken rice bowl. I LOVED this! Fresh, clean and fast prep. And it packs a flavour punch too!
