I've been working on later finishes all week. But today is my one early start... and need coffee STAT.
Around the office I've become known as "the girl who's lost some weight but eats so much cheese" so there were a few laughs today when I was in charge of the meeting snacks...
Guys... it happened. My first goal. 🙌🏼✔️
I love this photo, but I'm pretty sure this is me at my heaviest. It was July 2016, about six months before my move to Melbs. I had come for a visit and was down in Torquay with a friend when she snapped this. I remember looking at it and thinking "Shit... something has to change" and then doing my old denial trick. I love that I look so happy, but there's definitely room for improvement.
Having had a pretty emotional couple of days (weeks, months) I'm desperately trying to remember that I've come really far lately. Not just with my food and exercise habits, but also with taking care of my mental health. You need to love your whole self, nourish every part of you not just some of you. Otherwise what even is the point?
Holy fucking amazing coffee 🤤
My weigh in this morning says I've gained, but it's such a minimal amount I'm not worried. It could be hormonal, it could be I ate more than usual yesterday, it could be this stress and anxiety I'm working through. It could any number of things. The most important thing is that even through all this stress and anxiety I haven't slipped backward into my old ways. Old me would have spent yesterday binging on Jaffas and feeling sorry for myself. Instead I unpacked some more boxes from moving house and read books and had a bath and then went out with a friend for dinner and a movie. My keto journey isn't just about those numbers falling off the scale, it's about me falling back in love with me.
This is what nights out look like now. Thanks for the #sds
, glad you caught me at such an unflattering moment. 😂Check tags for noms 😘
When your food matches your plastic 😂
Working out my menu for the week like...
Sunny Saturdays in my new neighbourhood. Is there anything better than bacon, coffee and friends?
always gets me through when I forget my lunch! Thanks again guys, totes delish as always!
I have been eating like an asshole this month and had a couple of massive blow outs that involved both Jaffas AND twisties. It's good to know I am still on track for my 10kg by the end of March goal.
My favourite early start breaky ☺️🍳
Self love and admiration is something I have struggled with for years. I have many friends who think the world of me (loudest among those is @misssteeegeee
) but for the life of me I struggle to see what they see. There is a certain amount of childhood trauma that can be identified as the cause of my anxious and negative self talk, but a huge part of my keto/weight journey is about exactly that. Changing that negative self talk into something more positive. I would never allow someone to say the thing I say to myself about someone I love, so why do I beat myself up like that? My new goal is to refocus on this and constantly work to remind myself that I am pretty amazing and there is substantial proof of that.
When you move house and your new housemate not only understands keto, but cooks food for you then you know you've chosen well 🤤
