Apologies and Melbourne

I've been a tad neglectful of my blog since the end of round 1 and I do apologise. I have had some major uni work due and that has taken all of my focus of my blogs. But I'm back now and I'm excited to be back on 12wbt and back blogging.

So first things first....there was a little road trip to Melbourne.
WOW what a week away it was. So much fun, accept for a few little hiccups we had a wonderful week away.
The record breaking workout was so much fun and I got to meet a very special lady. My first pic is before the workout, this is with my dear friend Fairlie, she lives in Geelong and was very keen to come along and join in the workout with me. Fairlie has joined up to do round 2. It was so cold, I actually think my teeth are chattering in this photo lol.
Group workout time, these a just a few of the workout that my boys took.
 This one I love, I love my expression in this pic and that I know I'm thinking I'm on stage in a musical theatre production...LOL

The group workout was a heap of fun and even managed to burn a decent amount of calories
AND then a very special moment for me...I got to meet a young lady whom blog's I have been reading all round, a lady who has kept me so motivated and someone I am very proud to call my friend
This is Janie and my youngest little man Cameron.

So after our mammoth workout, we headed back to our hotel and got ready for our night out to celebrate. This was a bit of a disaster, our 10km from the CBD hotel was a lot further than what we thought and that night, due to a comedy of OH SO MANY ERRORS it took us 2 hours to get to the party. I was beside myself by the time we got there, but finally we did and we had a fantastic night.
 This is me and my gorgeous hubby, glad to have a wine in my hand after our trip from hell.

My dear friend Kate, we've been in this together from the start.
What a great night, lots of dancing and drinking, even though it took us 2 hours to get there, it certainly was a fabulous night. I loved seeing the winners up on stage and knowing that many of the winners were part of the 30+ crew, I felt so proud. I saw many of the 30+ girls but I was too shy to introduce myself, I still feel like I'm a nobody and they wouldn't know who I am - something to work on.

As I was leaving the party I got to meet another young lady who was my initial inspiration for my weight loss journey.
This is Angela Wallace and she is the reason I signed up for 12wbt. My starting weight was similar to Angela's starting weight and look at her now, she is gorgeous and such a friendly, lovely person and I was so happy I got to meet her.

Well I think that's all for the moment. I'll be starting the bloggers challenge in the next few days and I hope everyone has had a great start to round 2


  1. Two things to say:
    1. you are gorgeous - LOVE that dress you chose for the finale party (and after you were a bit stressed about finding something??) I love the photo of you with your husband, too. I hope he had a great night and wasn't too overwhelmed! and
    2. how amazing to meet the reason you started this journey! Little bit jealous you got to meet angela actually :) Great pic.

    1. Thank you my sweet. I actually borrowed the dress off my sister (my genetically blessed, size 10 sister lol). Shane had a great night, I think he was a little bored though. If I ever go to another one, I may leave him at home to babysit :D x
