Truth BOMB!

I have been on a little holiday with Willow to visit our family and friends in Adelaide. I decided that on this occasion I would let myself relax and enjoy the surroundings and by that I mean food and a little champagne. Mum and Dad are kicking goals with their healthy lifestyle so it was easy keeping in check when I was home with them but anywhere else I was in free fall and it’s okay, I had planned for it. I had such an amazing time catching up with everyone, introducing Willow and celebrating birthdays that I put my weight loss secondary and the scales reflected this. I’m not sure I know too many people who can maintain while on holiday, I wish I could but the enjoyment of sharing a meal with my friends and family was too great.

This sort of bump in the road has thrown me off on previous occasions, made me doubt myself and brought forward feelings of failure. I won’t accept this anymore as this is my life. There will be times when I go away and let go but that is all a part of the balanced lifestyle that I am aiming to lead. Less bumps and more wins but it’s the wins that are worth focusing on.

In the past there is no way I would have jumped on the scales a day after coming home. Avoiding the truth bomb is a way of accepting that holiday eating is a part of everyday life. Not anymore I forced myself on to those scales dragging my feet but I would not allow myself to be disappointed. I knew what I was getting myself in to.

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.
