Sunday Shout Out – Week 8!

Today’s shout out is a special one, as I have a transformation to share with you all!  This weeks shout out goes to a man I have been following on instagram for the last few months.  I read his story and was very moved.  I started following him and I believe he is one of the most down to earth, real and inspirational people on instagram.  He is always supportive of others on their journeys and he has a sense of humour which is contagious.  If you have instagram I highly recommend checking out his page:  @biggieodonnell

Here is his story:

My Journey began 15 months ago… A severely obese close friend of mine (450 Lbs.) suffered a brain aneurysm. At the time I weighed 475 pounds trying to get into a bathroom big enough for a small person. His dead weight was almost impossible to stand him up. With the quick response of myself and paramedics he’s alive today. This happened on a Sunday. When I got home from the hospital I broke down in tears realizing that could of been me and no person small or big could handle such large weight and save my life. I didn’t sleep that night. At 430 am I went for a walk around the block. Winded and wanting to quit I made myself a promise not to give up. In 15 months I’ve lost 225 pounds due to healthy eating and basic heavy training with 90 minutes of daily cardio. My journey will never be done as I know my life has changed for the better and eager to help those who stand at the starting line I once stood at.

I love hearing about people striving to better themselves and are more than happy to help others in the process 🙂  It makes me happy!  Awesome work Biggie!  Keep it up 🙂

What will you do?

I saw this video posted on an amazing blog I follow and I thought it deserved more than a “reblog”. I thought I’d write an actual post about it.

It really puts into perspective how much time we have (or don’t have) and that we really should be making the most of each and every day!

It is another take on “life is too short” and that if we aren’t happy doing what we are doing then we need to change it.  We really don’t know how many jelly beans we have left…

Take a look at it, and I hope it inspires you to do something incredible today 🙂

Two Days In…

Firstly, I hope that you had a chance to check out the post I re-blogged earlier today from the amazing Better Man Project.  It was Monday Motivation at its finest!  If you didn’t, you can check out the video directly on YouTube here.

It’s people like Arthur, that are true inspirations!  They show us that anything is possible and if we believe in ourselves we can do whatever we set our minds too!  Even when people have told us that it is impossible!  

On a much smaller scale, I have had a number of people tell me that I am being too ambitious with my 30 Things Project.  I want to show these people I CAN do it!  I am happy to report that in just two days I have completed 3 things so far!  I have also managed to start my first book and watched one movie – I have started a page here listing the movies as I watch them.  Would anyone be interested in a short review/star rating on the movies?

It’s exciting to feel a sense of accomplishment and I am excited to start working on the scrapbook which will eventually be filled with the 30 Things!  I have never tried scrapbooking before, but am looking forward to doing something creative and I was lucky to find a scrapbooking kit which has everything I need to get started!

I had a lovely day on Saturday with friends and also spending some time on my own in the morning at the gym and the movies.  The perfect mix.  I am looking forward to a family barbecue this weekend 🙂

I saw this picture on Facebook this morning and I thought it was fantastic – simple yet very inspiring. A New Year is a clean slate, we can make it as good or as great as we like. What are you going to do with the next 365 days? Only you can choose!

Happy New Year Everyone – let’s make this our best year yet!!!

Sunday Shout Out Week 4!

Sunday Shout Out Week 4!

This weeks Shout Out goes out to my good friend’s canine companion!

This little pug has recently shed a few kg and is currently in an intensive training program involving sitting, staying, dropping, shaking and high-fiving.  He  is currently in training to roll!  He has also recently discovered a love for the ocean!

Very proud of this little guy and am glad I got to spend some time with him and his owner as it has been far too long! I also got to meet her new man too. LOVE YOU ALL! xx
