Tone & Shape

Reason to start The Challenge

I'm a single mum to to 2 beautiful children. I've put myself last for a long time now and as a result my health, my weight and my happiness has suffered. I need to put me first, so I can be the best mum, girlfriend, daughter, sister and colleague I can possibly be.
My dad passed away from a heart attack suddenly in 2004 when he was just 55 years old. If I continued the way I was going, the same would have happened to me.

What did you like most about The Challenge?

I liked that no matter where we were starting we could all be a part of the Challenge. I liked that I was accountable, to myself, my friends and our group.
I am a complete novice when it comes to the gym, exercises and healthy eating. I was able to watch videos, see recipes and have a support network available to me during the darker days.
It was so well planned, well executed and easy to follow. I knew what I was supposed to be eating, what I was supposed to be doing when I was training and what I couldn't find on the Maxines website, I could ask in a forum or in my Maxines group.
I liked that I'm now the person I was supposed to be years ago. I put myself first and these 12 weeks has changed my life.

What was the hardest thing about your Challenge?

The hardest thing for me was letting go of the comfort I had in being the 'fat' girl. I've always been a bigger girl, I'm 186cm tall, I've never merged with the crowd, and I knew that I could hide my weight.
I gave up all the foods I lived on. I had a tough time with sugar withdrawals in the first couple of weeks, but I trudged on through, I knew it would get easier.
Saying goodbye to my usual lunch of;
1.) Hotdog with butter & tomato sauce
2.) 1.25L Pepsi Max
3.) 6 Potato Scallops with extra chicken salt
4.) Custard tart
5.) Battered deep fried Mars Bar

Walking into the gym or even exercising was something that petrified me, everyone would be looking at me, I didn't have a right to be there, I'll train when I'm skinny were the things I used to tell myself.
Eventually I had to stop and say- no, you do belong in the gym, nobody is going to judge you for giving it a go- Don't give up before you've begun.
I still miss a lot of the foods I gave up, Im not going to lie. But I know that those foods are not good, they are not good for my body and they never were.

What impact has The Challenge had on your life?

I didn't have a life prior to this Challenge. I had an existence. I woke up in pain, shuffled around with my sore feet, my sore back and my sore knees. I'd eat fast food for breakfast, snack continuously on junk all day long, eat fast food again at lunch and dinner. My days consisted of eating as much as physically possible, with zero exercise, zero physical activity.
My bad habits were involving my children, and I was slowly but surely killing myself by overeating. Cereal with cream for dinner, copious amounts of buttery toast with Nutella, Icecreams with blocks of chocolate were the norm in a day for me.
My father passed away suddenly of a heart attack at 54 years old and his lifestyle contributed it. I miss my dad dearly, he was my world, but I was scared that I was walking the same path.
My life now consists of carefully planning my meals, measuring my portions, eating to fuel my body and rehydrating myself with water, not soft drink.
I eat breakfast each day and I enjoy eating clean. I feel lighter, like a weight has been lifted from my chest. I can get out bed, no pain. I can do my highland dancing with constant pain of 123kg smashing down on my knees and my ankles.
I'm confident, I take care of my appearance, I wear makeup to work, I wear accessories, yes I was so depressed with my weight that I stopped wearing earrings because I figured nobody cared what I looked like anyways.

What would you say to people who are thinking of doing The Challenge?

The cliche of do it, it will change your life doesn't even seem to come close to how I feel about this challenge. This challenge has changed my life, it's changed who I am physically, mentally and emotionally. I can do it, and I was no fitness expert, I was just the big girl giving it a go!. I had lost who I was as a person before this challenge, I stopped caring. But now I'm a proud person, I'm proud that I've made a change to my toxic lifestyle. I would say to anyone, doing this challenge- you have nothing to lose. You will achieve things that you have never thought you could. I'm living proof of that. Prior to the Challenge I struggled putting shoes and socks on, now I'm close to doing the splits! I've gone from a size 22 to a 16/18.

Anything else you would like to tell us about your Challenge?

My challenge has had some fantastic days, some not so great days and some days where I would be in tears for no reason at all, but I finished!
I'm a single working mum with 2 beautiful children. My son is High Functioning Autistic, and I have made these changes not just for me, but because I'm all he has. I need to be here for my children, they need a happy healthy mum, not a mum constantly racked with pain and with crippling depression that consumes her.
Our days are brighter, I have so much to look forward to, there's summer, holidays and mini skirts! All the things I loved but avoided like the plague.
Thank you Maxines for motivating me to be the fiercest, most determined me I can be.

    Sunday 17th May Its here. The last day of this challenge. I'm still in it, I'm still focused, and I'm thinking happy thoughts. I've completely changed my life, in 12 short weeks. It's the start of a new life for me, it's my time. I can do it. Ive gone from the frumpy, dumpy big girl who wears size 22 clothes, flat ugly shoes to suit her fat feet, and not much makeup coz what's the point anyways! I'm now fitting in to size 16 and 18 clothes, and now I don't simply have to reach for the xxl or xl shirts. Sometimes I'm even smaller. I bought a top 2 weeks ago that is a m, and that is completely unheard of, and I didn't believe it,part of me still doesn't. I weighed myself today, I weigh 97.2kg, I've now lost 25.9 kilograms in 12 weeks. I was so shocked when I looked down at the scales, it feels like just yesterday I was weighing 123.1kg It hasn't been an easy journey for me, there have been times I've been angry and sad, and times I've just wanted junk to eat to make me feel better, I'm human. But I've walked away from the kitchen when I've felt like that, eating is not the answer, and I don't need to eat every single minute of the day. I've spent my whole life trying to fit in, to be like other girls. I'm 6"2, I just wasn't built to fit in with other girls. I've hated my height forever, so being proud and walking tall with my shoulders back was something I just didn't want to do. Now that I'm on the way with my weight loss journey I feel proud, I'm proudly walking with my shoulders back. Life can only get better, I can only get better. I'm participating in the next challenge, so my journey won't simply stop here. Till next time Maxine xxxx

    Saturday 16th May Its really sinking in that we are in the business end of this challenge. I don't have the funds to have professional pics taken, so I'm relying on my 8 year old daughter to take my pictures. I'm sure they will turn out ok, but I just can't justify spending money on a photographer when I'm not finishing this challenge exactly where I want to be. I still have a way to go, so I'll worry about professional pictures when I'm a size 14. I've shed some kgs this challenge, and I'm proud of that. My kids are proud of me and that is what is important.

    Friday 15th May Its Friday, Highland day, spray tan day, scrub day. Ive never had a spray tan before but I'm told - go dark, so dark I'll try for. My awesome friend Bri now gets to see the 'whole' me in her shower lol, she's in for a treat ha ha ha. Smashed it at dance, felt strong, and my high cuts are improving. Diet still 100% on track and I'm feeling great today.

    Thursday 14th May I'm on the downhill run now, I can see the finish line, I can see my friends and family are so proud of my achievements. I'm still a fat girl in my own mind, just because I'm too scared to say I'm not. That probably makes no sense, but I'm scared to look at what I have achieved and be proud. I am scared I'll slip back into my old habits, or get lazy. Def need to get out of that mindset, it's toxic, and it's like I'm willing myself on to fail. Pumped hard at the gym, did back, tri's, bi's and shoulders. That area on me has improved so much in these past 12 weeks. I might not be pumping out men's push ups just yet, but I would struggle to even get down, or get up from sitting on the floor before, so I'm so much better than that now. Putting on stockings, shoes and socks were something I struggled with before, my belly got in the way of everything, but it's slowly melting away lol. Excuse the washing in my pic, but I wore a dress to work today. Yes me, I wore a dress lol.

    Wednesday 13th May It's hump day, and leg day! Smashed out a really good session, did some leg presses today with some weight on there, my legs are feeling strong, though my knees are still a concern of mine. Def noticing the definition when doing my calf raises, and my weighted step ups. Diet on track, but feeling like naughty foods. Maybe my body knows we are so close to the end, but I must resist, otherwise I'll end up back where I started from.

    Tuesday 12th May Focused today on some walking/jogging. I was struggling a little while ago to even run up my stairs quickly, but I'm slowly getting fitter, and yep, I'm slow at running still, but I'm moving which is more than I can say I did 12 weeks ago. Stayed strong on my diet, though I'm getting conflicting stories on the green tea. Some people say, yep have 4 cups a day, others are saying no don't have it, it dehydrates you. This is a problem I can see for me when challenge is over. Where does the 'credible' information come from? What recipe books should I be looking at? And what's Paleo? All things I'll have to look into when I'm in the phase between this challenge and the next.

    Monday 11th May Its week 12- Holy Holy Lord, I've made it to week 12! I pray each week to have the strength to make it to the next week, and it's got me to the end. Life is feeling bright. Had a big workout at the gym today, gave myself a little less rest time so I could get through everything. Did legs today, and I'm super proud of my calves. My dancing has certainly helped them along, but getting strong legs all over is really a positive. Ate well, drank plenty of water. Was very jealous of someone's 2 minute noodles at work though, that smell of noodles gets me everytime!.

    Sunday 10th May Happy Mothers Day To me! I bought a skirt today, that I had my eye on for about 6 months. It's just a Sportsgirl skirt, that was on sale. The last time I tried it on was late January 2015, I struggled to get it up past my thighs. I bought it today, it's a size 16, fits me perfectly and what is perhaps the sweetest thing of all??? I have not worn a size 16 since before my children were born in 05 & 07. My aim has always been to get back into size 14's, I haven't been one for quite some time. It's a big ask, but I'm determined to not just give up.

    Saturday 9th May Another Saturday, which starts for me with being with my daughter for 2 hours for dancing. Then i get to do my Saturday circuit with my friends Bri and Drew today. Did a big leg day, and my legs were def feeling it. Getting better at my modified squats, still hearing the cracking noises, but there is no pain, so I'll trudge forward. Still having heart palpitations regularly, sometimes to the point I feel like I'm going to faint. There have been a couple of occasions that I've even stopped, sat down or braced the wall, I'm making myself sick worrying about how my weight loss is going, what is everyone else doing, should I be doing more?

    Friday 8th May The end of the week is closing in, and the panic is really setting in for me. I've never tanned in my life, never worn a bikini, and I'm petrified im going to judge myself too harshly. Im so happy for the girls in our group, they are supportive and lovely, but what will they say when they see the girl who was a size 22 wearing a bikini? Was so anxious today I was off my food, I felt if I ate something I'd be sick. It's like I have made myself sick, racked with worry, that in just a week, this journey of 12 weeks finishes, and I'm left alone. Took my mind off things at Highland dance, let myself get right into the Seann Triubhas, Swords and the Jig.

    Thursday 7th May Its my daughters 8th birthday today, so I have to be extra cautious to say no to birthday cake lol!. Had a great session at the gym today, really noticing the changes in the mirror, my legs have thinned out, but still muscular, and my arms are getting... Shock horror, some muscle! Stuck strong with the diet, said no to cake with fresh cream and copious amounts of sugary icing. Focused on the last 2 weeks of this! I have to make my family and friends proud. My pic today was my son, my daughter and I at the Hunter Valley Lights in January 2015. I was puffy, overweight and not the Mumma i was supposed to be. I really am proud of my journey so far.

    Wednesday 6th May Did a big leg session today, really pushed myself, put extra weights on my calf raises, my assisted squats and tried to go that extra plate or next size up in the dumbells. noticing so much more of my figure now, I have a waist, I can tuck shirts in a work without a massive fat overhang, feeling slim and probably silly, but I feel so much more professional. I don't have to wear bags size 22 harem pants and plus size tops anymore.

    Tuesday 5th May Today would have been my dad's birthday. He passed away in 2004 suddenly, and took all our hearts with him. My dad was a smoker, he was also a drinker. He didn't look after himself, never exercised, and was what could be considered obese. He was only 54 when he passed away, he had a heart attack. Its one of the main reasons why I'm in this challenge. I know he is looking down on me, egging me on, telling me not to quit. I wish he was still here, he'd be so proud of all the effort I have made for this challenge. I'm a working single mum with two kids, 1 with special needs. I do my best, but this challenge is something I'm so proud of. Im trying to learn from my past mistakes, the medications to lose weight, the binging I tried at one point, the starving myself, the various diets, and cleanses I thought would be the miracle cure, when really I am what has caused these results I'm experiencing. Eating better, getting some good sleep, exercising, using fantastic products, and bam- results. There is no quick fix.

    Monday 4th May Back to the working week, and welcoming week 11! I can't seem to not walk past anybody at work now who doesn't stop to chat to me about how I'm going. It's a change from the person who would just sit at work and eat massive chocolate jaffas all day lol. Had a great session at the gym, just trying my best, doing what I can, and substituting what I need to. Due to my knees cracking with every single squat, I simply widen my stance, and that seems to be going ok. And I'll be honest, I'm a klutz on the deadlifts. I try so hard, yet one of the fitness trainers at work was nearly laughing at my efforts. Ill just need to find something that works the same muscles, but doesn't make me look like a strange robot.

    Sunday 3rd May Had a great day, enjoyed my walk with my bf, and had a great old chat about the next challenge. We are both going to sign up for the next one, so there are big changes in store. It seems really silly, but since I've started losing weight, there are other things that I'm now doing, that I had stopped doing whilst I was so very overweight. I stopped wearing proper makeup, I wouldn't bother with eyeliner, I figured no one would look at me anyways. I also stopped wearing nice shoes. I would wear cheap flats and wear the same shoes every day and not even care what people thought.I stopped wearing earrings and bracelets, jewellery in general. I figured there was no point making an effort. Seems shallow, but that is what my life had turned into, just blending in, hoping I'd shuffle through life with my excess weight hiding my personality.

    Saturday 2nd May Had the day off training today, my right Achilles tendon is def feeling the effects of last nights Highland session. Feeling good with my diet, still having issues with my training, and not knowing if I'm lifting etc correctly, but just taking my time, and looking at my form a bit closer. Got a beautiful compliment from my children's parish priest this evening at church, even the vice principle chimed in with how good I was looking. Now a compliment from a priest is a blessing for sure!

    Friday 1st May Cant believe we are already in May. This year and this challenge is flying!. Again it's my Highland dancing night, look forward to it each week. Got a beautiful compliment from one of the young girls in class Taylor. She made a point of telling me how good I was looking as I was wearing fitted clothes this week as oposed to my usual baggy attire. it still makes me chuffed to hear compliments, especially from people that I don't expect them from. Had a great day mentally, was happy, focused and stuck to my clean eating.

    Thursday 30th April Woke up today, I felt focused, felt guilty for skipping a workout yesterday, but thought there's no point punishing myself, that doesn't help. Yep, I skipped the gym, yep I was lazy there was no reason for it, but I'm still learning, I'm still a rookie at this fitness stuff, so I can't dwell on my mistake. I just need to read through my program, get help on the things that are worrying me, and put my big girl pants on. Felt starving today, even though my food amount has been the same all week, just felt peckish most of the day. The old me would of had chip sandwiches with tomato sauce, but the new me had some extra almonds, and plenty of water.

    Wednesday 29th April Woke up this morning with a massive migraine, was a bad start to the morning, as this was at about 3:00am. I finally got back to sleep after have a hot shower at about 4:30am. I think my day was doomed. I felt blergh at work, and purposely skipped training. I felt so guilty. For a minute in the back of my mind I was thinking oh well, you have stuffed the whole challenge now, may as well go have some maccas. I sat in my car at work, re-grouped, and told myself, that tomorrow is a new day, a new chance to keep walking on my path. Cant keep looking back, must move forward, that's the direction I'm heading!.

    Tuesday 28th April Did a mix of cardio at the gym today, the treadmill, cycle and rower. I used to be petrified of the treadmill, petrified I'd fly off the back, or lose my footing, or I'd get too puffed and simply injure myself because I couldn't stop it from moving. Don't get me wrong, I'm still not mad keen on the floor moving underneath me, but hey, I'm trying lol. Followed the meal plan, but today had a massive craving for corn.

    Monday 27th April Well, I made it to week 10. I never finish anything, and I'm so close to the end, I'm proud of myself right now. i said I would do this challenge with my Dance Mum friends, Bri and Anna, and by gosh I'm still here. Had a great upper body workout today, really pushed myself. I'm feeling so much stronger, I'm putting extra weight on my bench presses, not just the 20kg bar, and that for me is a huge achievement. It might still only weigh 30kg, but for someone who struggled to put socks and shoes on the day before starting challenge, I'm 100 times better now!. really missed bread today for some strange reason. Had a massive craving for Vegemite on toast.

    Sunday 26th April Did my own little circuit in my backyard with the few fitness items I have, calf raises, squats, kettle bells and I cracked open the Nutbush for fun. I don't care how old I get, or how fat I was, I could still smash the Nutbush at the kids school discos or holiday discos I took them too! My bf helped me with all my meal prep, and for the first time in the challenge I am going to try sweet potato this coming week. I'm feeling brave, I've never tried it before in my 33 years of being alive. I thought by the end of this challenge I'd have been brVe enough to try tuna, but nope, the smell still turns me off a mile. Sorry Maxine, I can't do the Nemo at meal time, I tried, really I did lol!

    Saturday 25th April ANZAC Day, an important day for me due to where I work. The guys at my work are amazing people, and their athleticism is something that I have always been in awe of. I was always embarrased to go to the work gym. I thought they'd all stand there and laugh at me. The fat girl trying to do cardio, or pick up the lightest weight. They are the opposite, some comment on my weight loss, compliment me, and even give me tips on what to eat, how to train even if they are mid workout. Having a good day today, feeling good that week 10 is just around the corner and I'm still here.

He really is my little rock, he is so special to me, and he's been so proud of my journey so far. I decided to do this challenge because of my 2 kids. I was taking them down my unhealthy path, and that was just not ok. I get angry at myself for the day I had, because I'm always saying in my mind (regarding my son) to cherish the little victories, yet in my own personal life I forget all about that mantra. I am achieving such great things, and I need to stop being the worlds harshest critic.

Not knowing if my technique is right for some of my exercises, are my shoulds down, is my chest out, is my back straight, is it arched, who knows. Grumpily ate my food. Missed my good old salad roll that I used to eat, 5 days per week. Yep it had butter on it, cheese, chicken, tomato, beetroot, lettuce, carrot and cucumber, but God I looked forward to it every day!.

Enjoyed my food today, and really enjoyed my protein bar, finding the perfect flavours has changed my life! I am seriously loving the cookies and cream and the caramel, they are like a treat when I can have them in the meal plan lol.

I'm happier, healthier and I'm learning how to take care of myself still, 9 weeks in. Started the week 9 workouts today, and boy they are hard work. Finding I'm at the gym longer, so I'm trying to work out if that's because I'm doing something wrong, or is it just that there is more to do at the gym when I'm there?

People are paying me such lovely compliments both at work, at dancing and even on the Facebook support page, it's so humbling that lil Ol me has a wave of support this time. Maybe that's where I failed before, maybe I tried to do it on my own, gave up then went back to my old ways? Enjoyed my Sunday with my kids, enjoyed spending time with my amazing by who does all my meal prep for me. Feeling great Maxine lol Thank you x

    Saturday 18th April 8 Week Check In!!! Today I was blown away with the Mount of kgs I have now lost in 8 weeks. I've now lost 17.5 kg and it's just the tip of my iceberg lol! Ive pushed myself really hard, stuck strong with my diet, as much as I want to stop and eat pastries, pies and sausage rolls, but I've not relented, and I've stayed fierce. Im now 105.6kg, so so close to my goal of 100kg, I can nearly taste it! Bring on weeks 9-12. The new me is slowly stepping into the light.

    Friday 17th April Feeling a bit sad that I don't have my Highland Dancing tonight, I really really enjoy it every week. I'm the oldest by far - The class consists of 2 17 year olds, 2 10 year olds and 1 8 year old. I'm pushing 34 this year and I have a 7 and 9 year old child myself, but I just enjoy my little hobby very much. Still eating according to the plan, feeling full and not breaking into chocolates or lollies, which I'm still in shock over. I used to live on fast food, all day every day. It came to a point just before I started this challenge that I was eating fast foods every single meal of the day, and encouraging my children to do the same. Not good, not good at all.

    Thursday 16th April On holidays this week, and really finding my water intake is lacking. It's like when I'm home I am distracted by home stuff and I forget to drink my 2-3 litres of water per day. It's causing me to feel really 'blocked up' and I'm not using the bathroom as regular as before. Def need to work on this. Need to keep the water up, as I'm sometimes feeling hungry, when it's probably not that at all, it's being thirsty. Did a big 5 km walk with my kids, and enjoyed my day. Feeling good, feeling the love in the Facebook challenge page.

    Wednesday 15th April Had an awesome gym session today, still can't master dead lifts, but I've got the rest of life to focus on deadlifts lol. I still find at times I'm a bit lost when it comes to terms and gym lingo, I kind thought that 7 weeks in I'd know all the names for exercises and have no drama working out the differences in exercises, but alas I'm still a novice. Churging away at my diet, seeing some really great changes around my tummy, and week by week, I'm still dropping weight which I'm always thankful for. Finding I'm loving the shakes, and the bars even with my fussy taste pallet.

    Tuesday 14th April Spent the day with my 7 year old daughter today. Played at the park -didn't get out of breath playing with her, took her to the pools, and enjoyed a healthy salad at the shopping centre. I feel limited with what choice to make in the food court, hoping this becomes clearer as challenge goes on. Feeling good so far this week. Haven't cracked and binged, and generally feeling positive.

    Monday 13th April Another week into Challenge, focused, determined and really feeling the effects of training. I sometimes have to swap around sessions to suit the days I do my cardio, and what gym I can utilise, but I'm finding that going to the gym is just something that has to be done everyday. No more excuses, it's a part of my life now, and I'm a different than who I was at the start of the challenge. I always give up, always feel someone else is better than me. Someone else deserves it more than I do, it's a mum trait really, but its a trait I'm trying to break away from. Finding my eating bland, but I'm looking forward to finding ways to make good foods even better.

    Sunday 12th April Had a great Sunday, focused on my diet, my training, my meal prep for the coming week, and really reflected on how I'm going on my journey so far. I have some really positive people with me on my journey, but like many others I still have some people in my life who on one hand will give me a compliment, then slap me in the face with an insult. I just try to breathe, stay calm, and I've found avoiding telling those people too much about my journey is beneficial lol. Deep down, I'm petrified what im going to do when this challenge is over. I'm petrified, that even though I'm going so well with my diet, exercise and weight loss I'll drop the ball when it's all done and dusted.

    Saturday 11th April Had a sore Saturday. Did an upper body workout, and my shoulders, arms and abs are extremely sore. I'm still working on push-ups and I'm still doing girls ones at this stage. Because I was doing push-ups on my knees with tights on, on carpet I got carpet burn on both knees and boy it stings! Worked hard, stuck to the diet, weighed myself (I get to see my weight loss numbers next week)

    Friday 10th April Survived week 1 of the holidays with no work gym. Still following the eating plan, still exercising but feeling emotional. I know I still have a long way to go, and maybe thats why I'm feeling a bit down at the moment. I have no idea why I'm crying over food, it's food. I'm hoping this sad feeling passes. Ate dinner at my mums- brought it with me.

    Thursday 9th April Ok it's official, I miss food!!! Don't get me wrong, I'm still eating clean and not faulting on the plan, but my heart still wants pizza. How long wil I feel this way? I'm not sure whether to just have some, then move on? then the feelings will stop? Had a little cry, then saw a picture of a baby and remembered what my end goal is. Did a run on my elliptical trainer, turned up my music now I've moved on.

    Wednesday 8th April Had a fabulous day today. Compared my rego tummy pic with a current tummy pic and the changes really are noticeable. I can feel that my tummy has def gone down in size but to see it in a pic makes me happy. Ate clean as per usual, but I do still worry about food courts and what is a good choice if im out and about.

    Tuesday 7th April Working out at home these next two weeks as its school holidays here, different, but I'll make the best of it. Had a wonderful day, got to watch the Australian Ballet perform and I got to experience some massive jealousy of those lithe, slender amazing ladies. They looked and moved like delicate flowers, but as a former dancer and still current dancer, I know hpw hard it is on your body. Happily tucked into my Burn Bar instead of lollies or chips for a snack. Ordering at lunchtime was a bit more challenging, but I didn't flinch when I opted for tomato, spinach and an egg instead of a fatty schnitzel with chips.

    Monday 6th April Had a great Easter Monday, worked out at home, cardio and weights. Still feeling sad about the no chocolate yesterday but I'm just moving forward, and thinking about the end goal, which for me is a wedding and God willing a baby. Im dying to have another baby, but it just was not an option at 123kg. My back, knees and feet just would not have coped. Not even the likelihood that I'd be a prime candidate for Gestational diabetes. My eating was still on plan today.

    Sunday 5th April - Easter Sunday Well today has been the worst day of the challenge for me. I really struggled with what foods I couldn't eat today. Prior to starting this challenge I would eat copious amounts of chocolate, hot cross buns and all other sweet or greasy Easter treats over the Easter break. Today, I had zero of those things and I struggled. I know I should be proud of how well I am doing but sometimes I just plain out miss foods. I'm not starving myself by any means, I find that I'm never hungry following the plan, but sometimes I just miss bad food. I had a huge emotional relationship with food. I'd eat when I was happy. I'd eat when I was sad. Now I'm only eating to fuel my body which im still getting used to. I survived, put my big girl pants on, and stayed clean with my eating.

    Saturday 4th April Well today was some cardio/dance with a 10km run on the elliptical runner and some dancing with my daughter at home lol. We had a laugh and it was so much fun. Ate a Cookies and Cream Burn Bar..... Soooo good! I was sceptical about them at first, I thought they tasted gross when I first tried one but now its like they are a treat and I'm being naughty! Fitting into more and more 'skinny' clothes and that feels fabulous!

    Friday 3rd April Good Friday No Highland Dance tonight, so my cardio consisted on cleaning my house. I'm in a 2 story, so housework between the levels is def a great cardio workout! My sleeping is still a bit mucked up, but I bought some Maxine's Nighttime, so I'm crossing my fingers that it'll help me get some quality zzzzzz. Ate fish tonight and though it had crumbs on it (I won't touch it otherwise) it was actually ok tasting. I'm catholic, so hopefully Jesus will be happy with me for my food choices today which included no meat.

    Thursday 2nd April Had my absolute best day so far in this challenge. Wore a top to work I haven't worn for at least 6 years. It's slinky material and clings to every curve, and it now fits again and I've still got my curves in the important places, but now no 7 month pregnant belly. Worked legs and calves today, and I'm finding the extra things I'm doing to enhance my leg workout are really improving my balance for Highland dancing. The Bosu Ball was so daunting to begin with, now im bending right down to touch my toes and back up in first position with no wobbles. Calves really felt the burn today, but im pleased.

    Wednesday 1st April Started my day with a lovely compliment- "Stace you look amazing! Wowwwwwww!!!" Im usually quite embarrased by compliments but I love knowing that the little changes have turned into bigger changes, and others are noticing my hardwork. Did my shoulders, bi's, Tri's and back today. It seems small by others standards at my work, but I'm now putting weight on my bench press, which is an absolute first for me. I'm on 30kg benches (the bar is 20kg by itself). Gotta start somewhere. Finding my triceps are getting so much more defined and I love the tricep exercises. Good day all round.

    Tuesday 31st March Fitness program put on hold today- I donated blood for the first time in 10 years. My blood pressure was great, and I felt good afterwards. I politely accepted the goodie bag you get when you give blood but divided it between my children lol. Im still having a tightness in my chest, or what I imagine a panic attack to feel like, and at times I feel a bit dizzy, but the feeling usually passes, with no problem. Diet is still going strong, and I'm feeling competitive and im really pushing myself to make top 50- or even top 10.

    Monday 30th March Started the new week with gusto. Had an amazing training session on legs, calves and back. I'm really pushing myself with my exercising and loving the sore feeling. Got my leg press up to 130kg which is a lot less that I used to do but I'm well on the way to getting back up in the big numbers. I'm aiming by the end of challenge to do at least 180kg. In my heyday I could leg press 240kg- that was back in 03. Sticking to the diet 100%, but I'm really craving pizza at the moment lol. Noticing my skin is clearer, smoother and im getting lots of lovely compliments which makes me feel great!!!!

Life at times is hectic, but I've got to say my feeling towards myself have changed so much whilst doing this challenge. I'm far more confident. I'm positive and I'm loving the changes. I struggled to do my shoes up before I started this challenge. Now I'm doing a fling at Highland Dancing and doing it with a smile! Stick to the food plan- haven't slipped yet!

    Saturday 28th March Caught up on my blogs for the week, still feeling uneasy in the stomach and chest. It actually makes me not hungry and worried. I need to get some tips on how to deal with these feelings and move forward. I know as time goes on my whole way of thinking about my health will change but I'm hoping it comes sooner rather than later, as this feeling isn't good. Had a 3 hour 'nap' today again, not good. I wish I wasn't so tired all the time. Tomorrow is s new day

    Friday 27th March Its my favourite cardio day, I do Highland Dancing for 1.5 hours and it's hard work! Not really enjoying the berries as I find them sour and tart, but still eating them because I know they are good for me. No slip ups still. Worked out hard and had fun.

    Thursday 26th March Arms and chest day. Learnt all the new exercises with one of the guys from work. It's all a new language to me, pushes, presses etc are all Spanish to me lol. Worked out hard, pushed myself today, I put weight on my bench press, and got through all 4 sets, great motivation! Its time I come clean though about how petrified I am for when this challenge is over. I get feeling like I'm having a panic attack or chest palpitations and I get really overwhelmed that I'm going to go back to what I was before. I haven't even slipped this challenge, or fall off the bandwagon so I don't know why I'm so worried. I've stayed strong for 5 weeks. I need to build up my confidence.

    Wednesday 25th March Hump day, feeling a bit tired, not having great sleeps at the moment. Did my legs today as Thursday's are not a good day to do a leg workout for me because I have Highland Dance on a Friday. Had a really good workout, working hard on my squats and calf raises, feeling a bit creaky in the knees, but hoping that passes with the more workouts I do. Eating still 100% and no bad choices to date.

    Tuesday 24th March Had a great session at the gym, my confidence is rising and I'm feeling comfortable to train even if there are other people in the gym which is an absolute first for me. I was always so petrified for people to see me exercising, I was too fat, people would state at me. Maybe it was all in my mind, because all I ser in the gym is people working out, worrying about themselves. Feeling a bit weird in the chest sometimes, and having worries about when the challenge is over. Another day done though, still haven't falutes at the eating program. I'm proud of my self for that.

    Monday 23rd March Another week into the challenge and I'm still here, still eating clean and feeling great! Having trouble sleeping, so am thinking about getting the Maxines Nighttime, hopefully my sleep will go back to normal, instead of waking 4 or 5 times during the night. Im still feeling good but I'm noticing that I'm getting really tired. I can't go through a weekend without having a nap, and my 'naps' are 2 or 3 hours. Working out is getting that little bit easier, my recovery times are getting less and less too.

I started this comp as a size 22. I plan to end it as a comfortable 14. I haven't been a 14 for 10 years. I've had 2 children in the past 10 years, and lost myself along the way.

    Sunday 15th March Well Sunday is over and I'm lying in bed feeling a bit sad. I do this to myself every time- I start feeling guilty about my weight loss numbers. I've lost 10kg since we started but I keep thinking I should have done more, 15kg sounds so much better lol. I don't know how to stop and be thankful for what I have achieved instead of still Negative all the time. I had my reward meal this morning, and I'm getting fuller quicker so my reward meal is getting less, I guess that comes with the territory of eatimg portions that are correct during the week. My mantra for this week is: Have faith in yourself- Week 4 is a mere few hours away. 7 days till pic reveals

I had another run through at my gym, and I'm feeling confident I'll know what to do on Monday when I go and train for the first time. Oh and went back to Scottish dancing and loved it.

The guys at my work who use the gym are fittttttt to say the least and I've always had the attitude, "I'll use the gym when I'm skinnier" but of course I still avoided it. Getting over the fact that, the people in the gym don't care what I'm doing in there, or what im wearing, that they are in there to work out lol. This is the start for me, week 3, and I'm changing my mindset-

That yearning for pasta hasnt dwindled yet, but I've learnt to just walk away, and for now that's working.

Stuck strong all day, ate clean. But then..... Tried on a skirt that I thought might fit me now that I'm losing some weight, I was wrong, and after that I was just deflated. I felt like a failure, like I should of tried harder this week, should of would of could of. I took a progress pic, I think I'll take them every 2 weeks, side by side the old me & the newish me, and even looking at the changes I'm sad. I'm sad to see what I was, what I've become.

    Monday 2nd March Week 1 done & dusted! Onto my 2nd week. Still feeling positive, and feeling some slight changes in my body. Not looking 6 months pregnant at the end of the day, my skin is clearer and I definetly feel 'lighter'. My lunches before this challenge used to consist of; 6 x potato scallops with extra chicken salt hot dog with butter & tomato sauce 1.25L Pepsi Max 1 Battered Mars Bar That was 5 days every week. Weekends consisted of various take away and different shops in different suburbs so the people wouldn't tecognise me coming in all the time. I was slowly but surely killing myself, and passing on my bad habits to my children. Now I'm in charge of my food. I'm keeping strong. I used to be so proud of my calves from being a dancer, but they seem to have been covered with layers of fat!. So I'm super keen to shed all that!.

I'm learning that it's ok to try new things, like the old Stacey would. I weighed myself but didn't look at the numbers though my friend assured me there was a loss, so I am really happy with my progress this week. Ive gone from a girl who ate Jaffa's for a snack- all day long, to one who realises that snacking is ok, at morning tea and afternoon tea time, not all day. Now I'm looking forward to trying avocado, celery & maybe just maybe when I get really brave.... Tuna. Had a great workout today with Brianne and I'm learning so much from her wealth of knowledge on foods and even training. Feeling positive & great!

    Friday 27th February Hello Friday! I notice this week Tim Tams are 2 for $5 at Coles.... The old me would have bought 4 packets. The old me would crush up 4 Tim Tams in a two pack of cremè caramel and stir it all up and sit on the lounge and eat that for a snack. Not today. My snacks today consisted of a Greek Yoghrt with a teeny bit of honey (trying to make it more palatable), and some seeds, nuts and dried fruit (protein mix) and 8 almonds and an apple. My will power is increasing each day, but does the yearning ever actually go for those 'old' foods?

Remembering to pack my snacks, my lunch etc today to take to my Mums place, then having to call back in to my place to pick up my pre prepared dinner, when I really just wanted hot chips after smelling them in the oven was hard!. But I did not cave & I ate my steak and vegetables under protest ha ha. I was told tonight by my Beautician that I look different- she last saw me in December, so hopefully that's a positive to push me ☺️

I'm getting lots of support from my work colleagues, all about how to prepare foods, vitamins & even exercises. i currently have an Achilles injury on both of my feet (years of Highland Dancing will do that to you) so I'm easing into exercising. I'm not hungry between meals, and I'm still amazed at how I've made it to day 3 with no chocolate, pasta and cakes ☺️

    Tuesday 24th February Well I made it through Day 1, and Now Day 2! Im finding though that I'm constantly looking at the food list, the eating plan, and I'm just feeling frazzled & in the thick of food/sugar withdrawal. It's probably a combination of no lollies, no chocolate and no breads but I'm feeling a little quiet, a little less energetic, like the ad Blerghhh! I'm using the meals as a guide, and substituting items where necessary (i.e I don't eat seafood) but I'm terrified to go outside the list. I'm terrified I'll let some corn into a meal and then eat a bag of it in butter lol. My eating habits were terrible before, and it will take me a few weeks to adjust to eating for fuel instead of comfort, but I am still feeling confident, determined and I feel spurred on by other ladies on this same journey.

    Monday 23rd February Well Day 1 is nearly done and it's my first day with no chocolate, no lollies, no processed foods at all. I have to say my mind is still consumed with snacking. Snacking when I'm bored, snacking when I get home from work, snacking later tonight when my lil ones are in bed. I'm still in a world of pain from doing the fitness test on Saturday, but I'm determined. I'm determined to get out of the triple digits. Here are my Weel 1 Fitness Test results- I didn't upload them in time I've been told lol ~ Burpees 5 ~ Push Ups 10 ~ Crunches 14 ~ Alternate Lunges 18 ~ Plank 0.52 sec (I started in the regular position, but went down into a push up position) ~ Jump Squats 34
