Part of creating a new life after my divorce was thinking long and hard about the environment I wanted to live in. For me, part of that was having a dedicated space to play with weights. Back when I was doing Crossfit, I fell in love with the barbell. I sought out extra technique lessons […]

Hi. Looks like you found me. I’ve been asked to road-test #reBalance, a program from B32 athletics. Program starts tomorrow. This has come at the perfect time for me – fresh out of a bunch of mega life changes that have left me a little pudgier than I already was, emotionally exhausted and wondering…what now? […]

Today I took myself back out for a walk through the nature reserve I discovered on yesterday’s walk. A lovely, meandering walk for 6km. Not that far, but it was a beautiful holiday from society. (Can I just say again that this is just moments away from my front door? I wish you were here, […]

I’ve lived here for nearly 30 days and today is the first day that I have explored my new space. That is terrible. Perfect day for it, actually. It is clear blue skies, nice and sunny with no wind. I’m also off work at the moment to recharge a little and try to reclaim a […]

Reading back through my old posts after months away from the blog has been interesting. When we first met, I was coming off a strict body-builder type diet and learning how to “paleo”. I joined Crossfit. and was the queen of the #Whole30, of organisation, of compliance. I was prepared for anything, and spent a […]

…and all of a sudden, things clunk into place. Just this week I had a big brain fart and it resulted in a moment of profound clarity. I had just finished organising to take my lovely bloke out to dinner with my parents to say all the things I want to say, “HappyBirthdayDad, ThanksForLettingMeLiveHereForAFewWeeksWhilstMyLifeGoesToCustard, WoooI’mDivorced, […]

Almost exactly 4 months since my last post. I’ll fill you in later on what those 4 months have held for me, but for now, I have something else I want to discuss. Food Quantity. My twitter feed is full of tweets telling everyone to eat more food. Don’t be afraid of food. Pile your plate high! Eat […]

This post is important to me. Very. It’s also one of those posts that makes me oh-so vulnerable – but I’m still going to go ahead with it. I trust you guys, you’ve been good to me. It will come as no surprise to you, after reading my posts and my history, that losing weight […]

New Year’s Eve 2012. I am sitting alone in my rented apartment, with an illegal rescue-kitty-that-thinks-she-is-a-dog for company. I’m happy though. Really. At the start of the year I was married, doing Crossfit and emotionally exhausted. Since then, I have left my marriage, taken two solo trips overseas, re-entered the dating scene, changed my approach […]

Directly related to my last post I have just had a little freak out about my progress images. I seriously thought you could see progress, and now I’m not sure. Fuck it. Enough independent people have told me I have, so I’ll roll with it. I hate progress pictures like these. I prefer to only […]
