Q. Why did I chose to get fit and healthy?
A. That little girl right there. My princess. My rock. My saviour.
I was never one who had to worry about food or exercise. I was a smoker, ate what ever I wanted, when ever I wanted. I was far from healthy, but I was always skinny.
I put on 30kgs + with my pregnancy and everyone always said it’ll just fall off.
My reality was in the left photo.. it didn’t fall off!
At Olivia’s first birthday I was 20kgs heavier then I had ever been in my life. I hated looking at myself. I rarely took photos because I didn’t know who that person was.
I couldn’t walk up the stairs at home without being puffed out, let alone walk my dog without needing a break.
After her first birthday and looking at myself in those photos and crying I made the decision to change.
To change my lifestyle, not only for my own health and well-being, but for Olivia!
I wanted her to have a fit and healthy mummy who can run around and chase her all day long.
Who would go on adventures with her and not run out of breath.
To have a mummy she can be proud of and not one to hide away when she finally goes to school.
I wanted to be the best I could be for my little princess!
So with a bit of time, patience, persistence and positivity I dropped that weight.
I became healthier, fitter and stronger.
Stronger physically & stronger mentally.
I am beyond happy with my progress. It’s a slow and long journey but one I am choosing to enjoy every step of the way.
A journey where both Olivia and I can enjoy activities and adventures together.
Not to mention the amazing people we have met along the way who have become like family to us!
They have motivated, encouraged and supported me along the way.
There’s no end goal, anything is possible.
And I am beyond proud of what I have achieved so far 🖤
