My old clothing haunt was City Chic size Large and XLarge.  At the start of this round I made a promise to myself that I would not purchase my Finali dress from city chic.  I have always loved forever new but only ever purchased shoes, bags and accessories from there.

Well deal done today I purchased my Finali Dress and it has a forever new tag. Yippee.What makes it even better is that at the start of this round I  thought I would be wearing a size 16 from Forever New but would be happy with that. Well today i blew that thought out of the water. I have a size 12 dress from Forever New.  Started this journey wearing size 22. I can't get my head around the fact that I had just purchased such a small size.  

Woo Hoo Happy Dance For Me


Well on Saturday I achieved a personal goal that i have been working hard towards since Christmas.  I competed in the Tough Mudder Challenge in Phillip Islands and absolutely had a ball.  We walked / ran 20 kilometers and had to climb push pull crawl and jump through 26 obstacles.  It was one of the most sensational experiences and a part of my journey that I will never forget.

I would like to say a hugh thank you to my team mates for all of their support before the big day and also on the day.  We had the largest team entered with a total of 64 very supportive individuals. The motivation, encouragement and belief in me during the challenge was sensational.

 I would also like to send lots of love to my hubby who has been my rock during this whole journey. He has supported me by coming to training and  kept me company on the numerous 10 and 20 km walk/runs which I did to prepare for the Tough Mudder.  He has been my rock xoxoxox

Last and most important is my trainer Julie for not only …
