Farewell to Sydney and to 2013….

My husband and I had a farewell party it went down like this….

I love having my family around, kinda sweetens some of the things that have happened in the past few months.

Looking forward to our move, new year, new start, new goals…. all things become new. xx

YAY Mud Run done! I have to say that it was probably the most fun and memorable Anniversary ever xx Many times as I approached obstacles, I had my old not-so-much -of a friend "doubt" creeping in and always telling me to take the easy way out. I can say with confidence that I had an amazing time, made even more amazing by sharing it with Steven. Soo glad we decided to run, even though we were rather hesitant in the morning. All that mud, meant beautiful glowing skin! 7km, drenched in mud, and hair looking more like a birds nest….. one word… AWESOME!

Relevant… Can I get an AMEN??

New years resolution, BEFORE New Years.. (what a rebel…..)

This morning as I dropped off my husband to work, we stopped off at the shops and he picked up a motivational calendar for me . 
It got me thinking, it really is the small things in life that make a difference. "He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much." Every journey is a series of small days, and in those small days, a series of small decisions, with each decision impacting the entire process. And that is how I am going to view this, small steps, little by little, but I will get there.

I love this quote, Happy Anniversary!

“The act of running is simple, one foot in front of the other. The art of becoming a runner is achieved through a new mindset and commitment to change, especially if it’s new to you. It’s tough, challenging, painful, sometimes lonely, regularly uncomfortable and often excruciating…but the rewards are second to none.” 
― Terry LanderFat Guy Runs A Marathon

Absolutely love this, and I am grateful for my husband who supports me, looks after our babies whilst I pound the pavement.

it is our 6 year marriage anniversary next Monday the 02 of December. I am more in love today than I was 6 years ago. You see, at the altar you think you love the person, but reality is, you ain't seen nothing yet! After you realise the flossy and flawless man aint so flossy and flawless, THAT is when it is love. Because it becomes a choice. Love is a choice, where as infatuation (that so many today call Love) is effortless. You can climb mountains, and fight lions and bears when you are infatuated. It is not hard to do everything for the other person, Love is not smooth sailing, it is hard. You know the prize you gain when you do love someone? helping that person achieve their full potential. My husband is doing exactly that, and I promised 6 years ago with the help of God to do that for Him. Here's to another 6 times 60 years of love and happiness ….xxxx I LOVE YOU.  (I love this wedding photo, it shows the reality of that moment, smile is pasted on, but eyes are reflecting real state of mind :Tired haha) Best day of my life, and thank you for being by my side, for being my rock, and especially for waking up everyday and choosing me. xx

SO much going on at the moment, but the key to life is to continue consistency whatever the circumstances. So I will, I am blessed with a supportive and loving husband and I am grateful to God that he is strong and is my backbone. I will continue this journey, and will plan, and work till I succeed.

I just registered for an International Marathon in Queenstown NZ.


1. Because it is a MASSIVE challenge for someone like me. (Like me as in Obese and full of self doubt.)

2. It has been a goal for a very long time, more of a secret goal because of the doubt I already had and the laughter I could hear from anyone who i would ever confide in (trust posting this on the internet haha)

3. After seeing my grandmother pass away, I was reminded of all her sacrifices, love and care for us, to give us a better life. What exactly am I doing with mine? wasting it with no goals that involve taking care of my health and longevity. She was a proud woman, and proud of me. One of the last times we spent together, she said that I need to lose weight, not for offence, but serious concern. And I for one, already knew that, but to see the look in her eye and the way she expressed herself, it would make anyone get off the couch and move!

4. I am an Islander. We don't have the best genetic traits when it comes to inherited illnesses. And I want to minimise the chances of any of these happening, this goal is a stepping stone to a complete lifestyle change.

5. I look at my childhood and the adults would always say to me "Do what I say, Not what I do!".  Now that i have my own children, I want to lead by example. Doing the right, so they can do right too. Plus I have such a beautiful friend and husband in Steven. He has always said, I want to live a long life together, I want to make his dream a living daily reality. I know my habits are bad, but I am also determined to be a game changer, not a pawn in life because of circumstances/ genetics/ poor me (violins) It is time to own my mistakes, and to kill it, doubt that is.
