Progression of me

from eighty four to now…

Something New!

2015 so far!

Happy New Year to you all!  I hope everyone had a safe and enjoyable festive season and as we move into another brand new year, I wish you all the best.  If last year wasn’t your finest moment, then wipe that slate clean and jump back on that wagon!  If 2014 was a good one then keep that momentum flowing into the new year and make it even BETTER!

Living for the moment.

As we approach the end of 2014 I can say that this year, like each year, has disappeared more quickly than the last.  At this time of year we have the opportunity to look back on what was and think about what is to come.  But most importantly, it’s a time when most people have a few minutes to just breathe.  And enjoy NOW.  Life is so busy most of the year, that I urge you to take a step back, and if you have 4 minutes, I beg you, please watch this.  That is all.

Until next time!

A new direction

Yes, I know I’m accustomed to trying to change the way I do things, but it’s all really a search to find what works for me! (And what I can stick too!)

I have recently been following along with a friends “100 days of happiness” images on instagram and it got me thinking of attempting writing my blog in a similar style.

Ultimately I would like to post a picture each day (but let’s face it, it may end up being every fews day) to give a bit of snap shot to my life and things which have happened that day to sum up the “progression of me” and my journey. They could be related to my studies, work, 30 things, something that made me smile, anything that I believe is a step in the right direction. 

Here is my first picture. I have recently changed health insurance providers and my new one has a little online test you can do and then provides “programs” you can follow to assist on creating a healthier you! Love it 🙂

Isn’t it funny…

Isn't it funny...

Love this quote! It’s so true.

To look back over the past two years and see where I am today is exciting.  I’ve learnt so much and still learning each and every day! And for the record … being 30 is pretty darn awesome 🙂

I have some more changes to announce soon….so stay tuned!

Exciting News!

Wow…OK….I just watched “2001: A Space Odyssey” and I am kind of weirded out!  Haha.  It was a good movie, slow to start but then I felt it was all coming together and there was a bit of suspense and then it all just went trippy and left me unsure of exactly what just happened!  But I still feel it was good.  Go figure!

It’s absolutely pouring outside, which is good as we need the rain, but this is insane!

Anyway, obviously neither of those random comments are my news……

When life gets busy

What do you do when life gets busy?  When the buzz of the holiday season finally wears off and it’s back to the “daily grind” so to speak?  Do you find yourself unable to fit in those work outs?  Do you find yourself more tempted by those sugary treats your colleague brought in to the office?

This is when I find it the hardest – the period just after Christmas/New Year/my Birthday.  During that period I always tend to wind down a little.  I’ve been happy with my work outs (I’ve actually increased those!) but my diet suffers a little.  I’ve found excuses to have that “piece of cake” or “cheeky beer”.  Overall my diet is still much better than it was a year ago.  I just need to keep up the consistency.  I know back in my post here I mentioned wanting to give IIFYM a go, and part of me still wants to do this but I need someone to explain it all a bit more to me – anyone out there able to assist?

I am currently coming to the end of Week 3 of the 12 Week Transformation Challenge and I can’t believe how quickly these 3 weeks have passed.  And with things getting busier, this is when preparation is more important than ever!  Already a quarter of the way through, and I’m not seeing the results I was hoping for as yet.  But it’s all a learning curve really…each time I’ve done a similar challenge I’ve come away with lessons learnt and have moved that step forward towards a healthier lifestyle overall.  

Tomorrow I have decided to have a day off working out and use my Sunday to prep for the coming week.  Make sure I know exactly what I am going to eat when and plan my work outs.  If next week is as busy as it was this week at work, I am going to schedule in some work outs both before and after work – that way if I get stuck back at work a couple of days my work outs don’t suffer.

Sometimes I read back over my posts and I can’t believe I’ve become so into my fitness.  I’ve become one of those people I never really understood!  But I LOVE it!  I’ve found something I really enjoy again.  I haven’t been this into something since I was 15 and was really into my karate.  I just need to find a similar passion when it comes to cooking up healthy, yummy meals… haha!

Enjoy your weekend everyone 🙂  Remember – preparation is key!!!!
