80/20 Does exercise or healthy eating work better for you? Maybe a bit of both? 

The past two weeks I have focused on exercise over food. It felt a little foreign for me to not obsess over what I was eating. I am conditioned to calorie count and fret over what goes in my mouth. It’s always been the same game and it hasn’t worked in the past, obviously. 

I felt myself falling back in to old patterns so I shook it up a bit. Totally living on the edge. I’ve been doing some TIFFXO work outs and walking. As for the food I’ve been eating mostly good. Definitely no angel but I find when I’m exercising it makes me crave fresh healthy options. 

I’ve had my moments. Gosh! the chia pudding!! Blurgh is one example but I’m a bit proud of myself I seem to be have a nice balance going on. I’ll be honest though. I feel like one big continuous stuff up as I find it hard to except that I’m succeeding. 

I’m so close to hitting the 10Kg mark so it is hard to bid adieu to them damn scales but it’s time. So after today I will be stopping for two weeks. Sounds easy right?? Well this crazy kid has been weighing herself most days and well, it’s not entirely recommended I do that. Now I’m whipping out the tape measure. Say what? Yup I opened up that sewing box. Thanks Mum. I’m switching Kilos to centremetres. 

I’m feeling nervous about the switch. I’ve not focused on measurement over weight before and worry I won’t see a change next week. Time to get that body moving and make use of the blue sky that has been lingering in Melbourne. 

Weight loss this week: 1.2Kg

Weight loss so far: 9.6Kg

Hips: 135.5 Bust: 115 Waist: 103



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.
