Posted in For the love of food, For the love of the body, Goal Setting, Personal Development, This is MY YEAR

Let’s be honest

Carbs are not your friend. They definitely don’t fix any of the worlds problems that’s for sure 

Dear Carbs,

I’ve come to you in times of need. For the times my baby decided that she likes to feed A LOT and for that she needs me to be awake. You have been there. 

Carbs, I’ve even come to you more than sugar of late. That should make you feel good about yourself. You have been my number one go to and you make eating so much easier. Pasta, rice, bread, rolls we’re over okay? 

Love from a 900g heavier me


Tiredness set in this week and a love affair with carbs happened. It’s awesome to reflect on where I went wrong. Snacking was at an all time high. I discovered the TIFFXO chocolate crackle slice and may have indulged a little heavily in that along with Date Balls and dark chocolate. Healthy in moderation yes? Not so good as an aide to cope with life. 

My exercise was moderate and in all honesty if I had fulfilled my promise of exercising daily I wouldn’t have gained the weight. I’ll get My measurements tonight and see how the gain reflects there. 

I’ve been part of the TIFFXO program for free this month. I’ve been enjoying the online community, exercise and occasionally making some of the food. 

June is going to see me taking part of TIFFXO again and committing to it. I’m a few months in and see the value of the program in keeping me on track. 

Weight gain: 900g

Weight loss to date: 9.9Kg 

Just a little bit of a killer taking me back under 10Kg. I’ll fill you in on a little secret. This is a pattern for me here. I find it hard mentally to get to double figures. Getting back on track with the program will get me there. I’m not going to let my mind win this one. 



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.
