Flying The Coup

I’ve been feeling incredible anxiety and stress over leaving which seems rediculous as I know full well that they will be okay. It’s almost like a predisposition to not want to leave, to stay by their side forever, no escape. Sometimes I feel maybe I don’t want to leave a little bit too much so maybe this might be a good lesson in letting go. 

For the moment Willow and I have taken to the air for a little jaunt to Adelaide. We are gone until Sunday, it’s been 6.5 hrs since we left Melbourne and I feel lost. I’m wondering when I’ll get to Skype them. 

So it’s all a bit wah! On the flip side I had a great flight with Willow and now we can enjoy our time at Mum and Dads. 

In reflection 

This week I found myself snacking a lot more. I’ve been a bit sick and tired and desperate for energy. I bought frozen yoghurt and found the pull to eat it at night. Why do I have to eat it if it’s in the house? I say IT because it doesn’t matter what IT is I have this deep desire to put it in my mouth. Not buying chocolate and junk has been helpful but I couldn’t resist the fro yo! 

I weighed in today rather than Friday as I am away and don’t want to use different scales. Everything will be back to normal next week 🙂

Weight loss today: 800g

Weight loss so far: 5.2kg



Hi! I'm Kate, I hail from Melbourne with my three loves, Willow, Matisse and my husband Dan. I enjoy staying active, attempting to be crafty, discovering new recipes and fun things to do with my daughters. I have found that becoming a mum has tapped in to this raw positive energy that I never knew I had. In this weird new world I live in I've found that I need to look after myself more to keep myself healthy and be a positive role model for the littler ones. Keeping this in mind has kept me on track to create the best me and be a better Mum. Well it's a work in progress but we all need to aspire to something right? I am also a writer, chugging away at that elusive novel but now is the time people. I am writing and you get to hear all about it, just joking, I won't bore you with that. If you want to know where I'm at please feel free to ask it might give me a boot to get me going in my less motivated of moments. I'm passionate about women's rights, equality, children's rights and mental health. I want to say social justice as a whole but it is so broad. I believe we all have the right to be the best that we can. I look forward to getting to know you all and sharing my crazy life.
