Admission Time

So I decided it is time for me to admit something to you all, I have been so focused on my own eating and making sure I follow my rapid plan that I have been getting really slack with ensuring the two kiddies eat Real Food.  So this will be changing and I am now on the hunt for Family Friendly real food recipes I can start using for the kiddos breakfasts and lunches.  I find these two meals in particular we get slack and stuck in a routine of a piece of toast with Peanut Butter and a sandwhich for lunch.  Dinner is always easy to ensure they eat real because that is what I have, so add a few carbs and they are good to go.  So over the next few weeks you will be seeing some posts focused on real food and eliminating the nasties.


So far my favourite places to get Real Food recipes have of course been Pinterest and a few other fabulous blog and Facebook pages I have recently discovered which I will be sharing in a post very soon so stay tuned.

10 Kg Down!

This morning I was super excited to find out that I finally hit (and passed) my first major milestone of 10 kg! I was jumping around and dancing like a mad woman because that is something I have never been able to do before and I am extremely proud of myself. The more I think about it the more I find this whole process fascinating and by that I mean, mentally I don’t feel any different than I did before except that I know I CAN and WILL do this.  I still think about most things the same way but tend to add a positive spin to it without even realising,  and as for confidence I can feel it growing day by day and that excites me so much.  Ultimately it feels like I am gaining so much as I am loosing the weight 😀

So to carry on my steller week I decided to try something different then my usual walk and gave the track up Cape Hill a go.  For those of you from little ol’ Pukekohe who are fit as a fiddle you might not think much of it but for me it was huge achievement.  I puffed and panted my big booty and the pushchair the whole way up that hill and have to admit I was super relieved to (finally) make it to the top!  It was such a satisfying feeling to push myself a bit harder and be willing to do something like that.  So I have decided to add that into my walks at least once a week until it is easier and then I will find something bigger and better 😀


So enjoy this terrible yet proud photo of me hopefully I will conquer many more mountains (or in this case a hill ;P) very, very soon!

Skecher’s Womens 6K Run

Skechers walk

Super excited to do this run (well a walk for me) with my mum at the end of the year!   I decided I needed a good goal to aim towards and 6 km sis a very doable distance, I will hopefully be smaller by then which will make it easier as well.  I have however decided if at all possible I would love it if I was able to run some of it, even if I could only manage 1 km that would be a huge achievement for me.  So I have started walking this week and with my new favourite gadget that I bought yesterday, my Fitbit Zip  (I am going to do a review on this next week), I am going to aim to do 6km walks to begin with and then next month I will start adding in some jogging and see how I go.  I think I am pretty crazy but I am willing to give it a go anyway.

For anyone interested in doing the walk themselves it is held in Auckland on Sunday, November 16.  I would love to see some familiar faces there 😀  Check out their website for some more information if your keen.

Rapid Reset

Hi Everyone,


Hope you are all well! We have been enjoying a few days with my hubby, who has been in Christchurch for 2 weeks, before he heads off for another few weeks again on Monday morning so things have been a bit all over the place this week.  Hope you are all enjoying your fathers day, I am just making the most of 10 minutes of peace and quiet while everyone is still asleep 😀

So a wee update on how my week has been going… I joined a online program called Rapid Reset which has been going great so far.  The goal of the program is to get your body into a state of Ketosis which basically means your fat burning is at its prime (excuse my very technical explanation).  This is achieved through eating real food and focusing on getting the right nutrients etc that your body needs.  It is split into 12 phases over 12 weeks to ensure you get the maximum result.  I am currently on day 6 of my first week and so far I have been really pleased with how its going.  I have had some yummy recipes one of which I want to share with you today and have felt really fresh and healthy. At the moment I am on day 2 of the 3 day detox, which just gets all the C.R.A.P (Caffeine, Refined Sugar, Alcohol, Processed food) out of your system so that your body will work as naturally as possible.  I will admit that I have found the detox a bit hard because it is a freshly made juice for breakfast, then a smoothie for lunch and then a salad and protein for dinner but man has my stomach been rumbling all day! But only one day to go and then I am back onto normal meals WOOHOO! Don’t forget you can follow me on Facebook your Instagram to see whats being eaten in our house 😀  You can check Rapid Reset out at if you are interested in joining.

I also have been working on my goals I set a few weeks ago and have started to make my inspiration board which I will share a bit more about in the next couple of days 😀

Weigh in day for me tomorrow… eek… hopefully I will have a great result to share with you all, otherwise its just back on the horse and carry on!

I will NOT QUIT this time!!!!!
