Theres always room for improvement

I have learnt alot from 12wbt but the biggest lesson i have learnt is that i have realised that i dont have to be a perfect weight watcher to achieve my goals i just have to be persistant and persevere and keep them in sight. Also once one goal is achieved always have another one. Something to work towards and keep you on track. My goals that i have achieved so far with 12wbt have been to loose half my body weight, wear a size 12 dress to finale on stage, learn how to swim, toe push ups, complete tought mudder and to conquer the monekey bars.

At the start i thought my goals would never happen. I had to practice my new behaviours until they became auto pilot. I say to myself when i slip up its not because i have no control it because i need to practice dealing with that particular situation that made me run of track. Through my whole journey i have kept my goals very close to my heart and in focus. Your Goals are you key tool in this whole journey. They are what keep you motivated

My biggest hurdle was my confidence. I had no confidence. So I found it very hard to believe in myself that i can do this. But as i started stripping back the layers my confidence started to appear and the more it appeared the more i believed i could do this.

At the start of the last round i had to dig deep to come up with a realistic goal that i wanted to achieve. Those goal were to do the monkey bars at tough mudder and to water ski for the first time . Last year i didn't even attempt them i just jumped in a swam across the monkey bars and when we go skiing every summer i sit and watch. I knew that monkey bars would be something that would challenge me. So i joined lean and strong and spent the round changing my way of thinking. But the whole time kept my goal in sight. My son and husband made me some monkey bars at home. Who would have thought less than 10 days till the end of the round and last weekend i achieved my goal i did the monkey bars at Tough Mudder. As far as water skiing go you cant take the smile of my face.

So please do your preseason tasks and keep your goals in focus. Below is a video clip i put together of
my round 4 journey

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…
