This last few weeks has been a bit of a struggle for me. Not physically, just mentally. The last 10 months has been so much about seeing the numbers going down on the scales, that wrapping my head around the idea of maintenance and not expecting losses is something I'm... Continue reading

This week I made one of the biggest steps I've made since I started my journey. I signed up to run a half marathon. The Melbourne Marathon festival half on October 14th. As I type this, I am shitting myself nervous, and I expect that trend will continue for the... Continue reading

It dawned on me yesterday that in ten days I'll be turning 28. I love birthday's - I am, to be quite honest, a bit of a diva when it comes to birthdays, I like to celebrate and have a party, but to be honest with you, when I thought... Continue reading

I woke up this morning, checked my email and saw my usual Wednesday 12WBT Weigh in day reminder. By that time it was too late, I'd forgotten and was a few mouthfuls into my protein porridge, so that will have to wait until tomorrow! Anyway, I digress, in my hazy... Continue reading

I had a bit of a revelation today. I usually get dressed in the cubicle after a shower at the gym. It's not that I'm prudish - in fact I change from my work to workout clothes in the change rooms every evening without a care, boobs and all. It's... Continue reading

You can't always get what you want. But if you try some times, you might find you get what you need. Such is the gospel according to Mick Jagger and his gents, and I'm starting to think it might be true. Let me tell you a story about this little... Continue reading

Michelle Bridges says it's consistency, becoming robot minded, JFDI-ing it and pretty much what I like to call 'sucking it up, princess'. Other's say it's simply about finding your motivation. But here's my question - how do I get from A to B in the morning? For a better explanation... Continue reading

One thing I really try to do every week with 12WBT is the weekly challenges. They keep me on track in a strange kind of way, like homework I guess, but I've always been a little bit of a nerdy kid wanting to do that extra little bit. Last week... Continue reading

As of today, my weight loss number is officially 20kg. Twenty WHOLE kilos. I was sitting on 19.8 for so long there. I went down half way through one week, then replaced my scales battery and it added 1.2kg back to my weight. I got back down to 19.8 and... Continue reading

One of my favourite things to have come out of my health and wellbeing journey is a love of nutrition. I have always loved cooking and baking, I love that it makes people happy to have a really good meal in front of them. I love even more when I... Continue reading

Ever since I can remember, I've hated my legs. Since before I was old enough that I should know I had fat legs. It was mostly due to the fact that it was cool to read Dolly magazine with my friends and ooh and ahh over the pretty girls with... Continue reading

Last weekend at our 12WBT party, they played a video. It was a 2 minute montage type thing with Michelle Bridges doing a voiceover, kind of spruiking the 12WBT program and who Mish is and all that. There were a couple of quotes from it that I really loved, namely:... Continue reading

The time has come to set my goals for Round 2 of the 12WBT. We're fully into pre-season and we've been asked to put our goals and commitments down, and I've thought about it, I've written them down and I've put put them away to check back on at week... Continue reading

So Saturday was finale day, and the 12 Week Body Transformation was over. It was the day I had been waiting for since I decided to join up in early January, and a large part of my motivation to push through when I wasn't feeling it during numerous workouts. Saturday... Continue reading

I've been scrapping again! I was very lucky to have a pyjama day yesterday and get this baby finished off. You know when you've got something sitting there waiting to be finished and you know it's there and you want to get the time to complete it, but it just... Continue reading

No, really! I got asked to guest design for Polly Scrap Kits this month. And I said yes, partially because Kayla Renee is an absolute doll, partly because the kits are goddamn gorgeous (I mean, have a look at this)... and partly because I needed a creative kick up the... Continue reading

I received a pretty cool email last night. 'Skye' it said, 'You are in Our Top 8 Percent' Of around 1400 who started this program on February 13, I made the top 8% - ME! Skye Johnson! Who woulda thought?! Certainly not ME, Skye Johnson! So, we all know what... Continue reading

Well, my 12 weeks is up. And I'm glad to report that I made it! I didn't quit half way, I didn't stumble and fall and not get back up. I actually made a change in my life. One that everyone around me can see and that I am slowly... Continue reading

It's funny how long it takes for your head ot catch up with what your body is doing. I'm hearing the same thing from everyone I speak to - looking in the mirror and still seeing the same, bigger version of yourself, walking into stores and still automatically picking up... Continue reading

Alright, alright, alright. So that whole 'blogging my journey weekly' thing didn't happen - oops! Not to fear though, my lack of blog consistency has not been reflected in my exercise, eating or general living. Which is a bonus! To update on the main stuff, the first stuff everyone asks...

My sweet friend Julie asked me last year if I'd be interested in photographing her wedding to her sweetheart Tony. I'm no wedding photographer, and it made me slightly (ok, more than slightly) nervous - I've always done my own arty stuff, in my own style and with my own... Continue reading

I'm finally all caught up with my blogging and ready to play along properly! So let's get into week 3, my favourite one so far. REWARDS! My life is pretty full of rewards. I don't have kids and I'm in a double income relationship, so we can afford to be... Continue reading

Alrighty, I thought two posts for yesterday was probably enough to bombard you with, so I'll catch up on week 2 today... This week we were asked these questions: What are you actually TAKING up? What are you giving yourself? Are you learning something new? Taking up a new sport?... Continue reading
