TOUGH MUDDER DONE AND DUSTED

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 doing a fantastic job and helping me get where I am today, but also for believing in me and all my team mates.  She is one of the most inspirational people I have ever met. Thank you Julie.

Tough Mudder OMG I can't believe I concoured you  and loved every minute of it.. To say less than 6 months ago I couldn't even walk 100 meters, is just mind blowing.  I still cant believe how much I have changed both physically but more how much I have transformed mentally.

To 12wbt members and team, Mish, My Trainer Julie, My hubby and My Team Mates  You are all amazing individuals and should be proud of what you have done to help both myself and others be where we are today . A much happier and healthier individual.

For those umming and arring about doing tough mudder. I say JFDI it is one of those experiences where you will laugh and cry and love it.

Round 4 2013 Wrap Up Qland You Rock

Well on Friday we were all pumped for our weekend in Brisbane and what a weekend it was.  Queensland crew you ROCK. You guys and girls showed of your city and all its awesomeness.  I loved every minute of my weekend in Brissy. From the minute I arrived and one of your lovely member Tracey English picked three of us up at the airport and drove us straight to our hotel door. To the Margie workout which was so much fun. I think i found a new friend with Margie just sayin lol.

Your entrance into the finale was just sensational.  So much hard work was put into organising all those little bits. So well done Queensland Crew.

I loved Mishes workout on Saturday. The vibe in the room was awesome. A little brag now the best part for me was my personal best. Winning the planking mini challenge 11 min and 05 sec. (who does that) I actually learn from the mini challenge a really good lesson and this is that yourmind is so much stronger than you think. I had a time in my head to beat last years winn…

I can now hold the Ski Rope Yeah Me

Haven't blogged for ages so thought time to put fingers to the key board and have a ramble.

I just came back from the most amazing holidays with my family every.

We have aways owned a boat and spent every holidays with the kiddies on the murray water skiing.  Everybody in our family have a ball but i was always too scared to try it. I tried once a few years ago and could not physically hold my own weight and keep hold of the rope. I can remember back then there were tears.. So from that day on watching from the side line like most things in my life was my entertainment.


Over christmas this year on our annual family skiing trip i decided to give it a crack. Surely by now i should be able to hold that friggin rope. Woo Hoo i did it and had so much fun.  Besides consuming litres of murray water through my mouth and nose i actually did it,  It felt fabulous out on the water you could not wipe the smile of my face.
There is absolutely no doubt that the kids will have to fight me from now o…

A pictures says 1000 words

As part of my prize in round one was to have profess photos taken at star shots. OMG my family and i had an amazing day and i just LOVE them and the new me.

But the pictures below are beautiful they mean more to me than just a photo.  Before my 12wbt journey began i was always the one behind the camera. The thought of me having my photo taken made me feel physically ill. Its sad really because i dont have many photos of me and my kids together growing up. So in a way i was being selfish because of my own self distruction and fears.  Out of all my 12wbt round one prizes this prize was by far my favourite. For the first time in my life i got a photo that i dont just like but i absolutely love them.

To think i was going to let this voucher expire. I think it expired on the 19th of December and i had them taken on the 16th. I can thank that to another 12wbter splasharama. I did water duty with Mary at the last finale workout and she asked me if i had them done. We started chatting and she…
