Well I Never

I walked in to a green grocer shop the other day and the lovely sales assistant saw me struggling with my pram and asked me what I was after. As I uttered kale and goji berries I wondered what she thought of me. 28 by Sam Wood uses all of the hip, health store produce that I would previously buy and leave to date in my cupboard. 

Today I used red kidney beans and no added sugar in cacao bean muffins. I wasn’t too excited by them but thought hey! give it a shot. They are actually quite nice and without the usual load of sugar in my diet I’m finding my taste buds are being satisfied by a wider variety of foods. The honey worked. 

The exercise is picking up and I’ve been able to follow the food list. Having the shopping sorted has made a huge difference and with time I am getting used to the website and plan. 

The stress is dissipating and I am 100% sure it is due to the exercise I have done. With exercise comes the endorphins and motivation. It even affects my parenting, I have found myself wanting to do more things with the girls. Walking to the shops, going to the park and making playdough. Such simple things but when you are overweight and stuck in a negative headspace the easiest things can seem like absolute mountains.  I’m learning that not only does my activity encourage Matisse to be active but it helps our relationship as she loves nothing more than doing things with me and having my attention. Positivity all round and we are having fun together. 



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.
