Dont Give In To Temptation

Temptation an evil word or a word we can learn from?
I have noticed around the forums the word givings in to temptation a few times so thought i giveyou my spin on it.\

If you eat that choc bicky or cake at work floating around dont beat yourself up we have all done this. Just make sure it does not have a rollar coaster effect. Pull it up here learn from it and move on.

There are a lot of possible triggers and this is where you have to dig deep very deep and find out what triggers you to do this. Why you are tempted in these situation. This journey is all about stripping back the layers and finding the real you. After a lot of sole searching at the start of my journey i found out that i gave into temptation for two reasons. bored and that i did not believe in the most important person to me and that is myself. But their are lots of reasons . Like stress, frustrations, boredom, no self belief,or just a short term loss of your goals.
Also a bit of values play a part in this. Ask yourself what are your own personal values and by giving into that temptation are you damaging those values.

Also think about what you are giving into. What the final destination of this temptation will be. I find if i ask myself if i eat that cake even though it will taste sensational at the time what will the end result (feeling be) be and will it be worth it. Follow the whole temptation process through. End result usually is your feelings guilt depressed failure . So will it be worth it.

Last but not least one of mish's favourite bits of advise YOUR WILLPOWER MUSCLE
This exercising your will power muscle hurts when you first use it but like all exercise it gets easier over time and when you do use it you will feel fantastic.

Learn from this little speed hump in your journey. Learn to say no to temptations and you will one day feel empowered by that simple word NO. Good luck this week and follow that road ahead because the destination is amazing

Have a good day everybody


  1. It really is about the journey and making life changes...

    Looking forward to seeing your re-vamped page - pink?

  2. Very true. I also like to think that I have to live what everyone at works has seen me preach. I am open about my goals and weightloss journey and everyone has seen the sacrifices I have made, so when they offer I know that it is expected pretty much that I will decline, so I do anyway. These people are proud of me for what I have achieved and I want to show them that I can and will complete this journey.

    They all comment "Well done" and "you are really strong" when I say no, so I have to keep doing it to prove them right and myself most of all. You are right, it is just a piece of cake or a chocolate so why bother. I just have a healthy alternative which I still find yum and join them anyway.

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…
