Woody is loving the water so much and shows no fear as he waddles into the water laughing as a wave topples him over. He gets up again and again sharing the same persistence as his siblings. Cooper is also more confident in the water and splashes about on his knees or tummy going under and gaining his balance as a wave tips him over. Pep squeals with delight as she jumps the waves and counts how long she can stay under water for.

My little kitchen helper.
I had gotten into some unhealthy food habits and was a desperate emotional eater. If I was stressed with the kids a block of chocolate would always be in hand.
Ten weeks ago I had a conversation with a friend that made me realise my excuses were invalid, they were useless and I needed to change. Woody weaned, there was light at the end of the tunnel as far as being able to get time to myself. My mind changed to thinking that I am deserving of happiness and good health and that I can do this. I am worthy of this and more than capable. For me exercising is about being alive for a very long time, for being active with my kids now, to be able to lift and transfer Cooper forever and for me to have time for myself doing something that benefits everyone.
So in ten weeks I have lost 10 kgs. I am aiming for another ten to be in my healthy weight range as well as gaining much needed core strength.
I am really proud of myself so treated myself to my first hair cut and colour in three years! I never used to make the time to do things for myself and it was about time! I had 2 inches cut off and my grey blends in much more nicely now! So thankyou to Andrew for signing me up to the gym and for dragging me along that first night when I could only manage 30 seconds of running on the treadmill.
Tonight I ran for 26 mins covering 4 kms so I am getting closer to my goal!
