Wednesday = Weigh In Day

Wake up - Wee - Weigh in - NUDE!!!

I have grown to love and hate Wednesday's. Back to the morning ritual and Today i weighed in at 71.5 which means 200grams down from last week. A lose is a lose and i am HAPPY with it. I have been having lots of problems with my girly things for these last few weeks. I normally put on a kilo or 2 around this time so i just wish they would hurry up and nick off so i can kick these last few kilos.

Slowly but surely wins the race right!!!!

So off i went to my Wednesday morning boxing class with my little girl in tow. I go to Coorparoo boxing gym .... I LOVE LOVE LOVE this place. Wednesday morning they have a mummy's class so kids are welcome to come along. My little girl loves it, she runs around the gym with all the other kids. We just close the gate to lock them all in and off we go. I train with an awesome group of ladies and the owner Harry is great with the kids. I absolutely SMASHED it this morning. 829 Calories gone. I love the feeling after a good workout, its awesome!!!! Wasn't really feeling like a workout today BUT i'm so glad i did. Pulled out the JFDI card!!!

I heard someone say this the other day and i thought it was pretty cool "If you still look pretty afterward, then you didn't do it right" Hence the beautiful photo of myself. Haha buggered, sweaty, bright red and loving it. (pic taken by my 3yr old daughter)

Pre Season Task 5 - Say it out Loud

Here is my commitment to Michelle and all my family and friends!!

Mish my commitment to you is to lose 4kgs, to run a half marathon, to compete in a triathlon and to follow the program 100%. I commit to toning up my body and i am committed to do the work to get me there.

Compete in my first triathlon
RUN Bridge to Brisbane
BIKE Jetty to Jetty
Run a half marathon

I am so looking forward to smashing out all my goals this round.

Goals are the fuel in the furnace of achievement

Wednesday = Weigh In Day

Wake up - Wee - Weigh in - NUDE!!!

Here i am again on this wet and miserable Wednesday morning. And you know what 300 grams down this week. YAY! I am pretty happy with that. I had an average week eating and training. Missed a few training sessions and binged for a few days to. So a lose i s a lose and it is NOT a gain so i'm happy!!!

I have learned this week that i need to be better prepared. Have back up plans sorted if i need them and to JFDI. My baby started at prep, my other daughter started at Kindy and my son went off to daycare so i was thrown way out of whack these last few days and we are all trying to adjust to the new schedule. NO EXCUSES here ......... i'm just saying it out allowed that i need to sort my shit out. Went for an awesome boxing session this morning after the kaos of dropping all the kids off and getting stuck in traffic and all the roads being closed due to rain etc etc etc. It was one of those mornings BUT got to my session on time and SMASHED it. 673 calories gone and i feel like i can take on the world.

Inspirational Videos

I love watching inspirational videos.

Listen to what the guy is saying ....... So friggin Awesome and so true!!!


Pre Season Task 2 - Get Real, No more excuses


While i was sitting here writing all of these excuses they just seem so stupid. I mean really Jasmin is this all you got, this is what has been holding you back?? I have to laugh because it is pretty hilarious - 'I can't train because my favourite training clothes aren't clean' has to be the best one so far.

Getting all of these excuses down on paper actually makes me look stupid and lazy. Excuse after excuse Blah Blah Blah ..... well now that is done i am ready to move forward. Not to dweal on the stupid crap i used to say and think. New me is coming!!!!

That said i had a PT session booked for 6am this morning so i got up at 4.45am and went for a run around the beautiful Brisbane river and then done the Kangaroo Point stairs a few times just for a warm up. Then did my 30 min boxing session. 678 calories later and i feel FANTABULOUS!!! (is that even a word) anyway i feel on top of the world.

JFDI baby

So True

Goal Weight 68kgs

So this means i have 4kgs to lose and then i will be doing the Lean and strong program to tone up my body.

Wednesday = Weigh In Day

Wake up - Wee - Weigh in ..... NUDE!!!!

So this is still my Wednesday morning ritual and today is a good day....... 72 kgs on the dot. Which i am happy with, i got my girly things yesterday so i always bloat up an extra kg or 2. So i am HAPPY !!!!

I set my alarm this morning for 4.40am to get up and go for a run but with my aching body and my tummy cramps i decided to hit the sleep button. I will just call today me rest day. I have learned over the last round that i need to listen to my body, if it is tired rest it and then it will perform better for me tomorrow. May even just go for a walk or i might even have a nana nap later today. But today is definatley a lazy day for me with the way that i am feeling. No stuffing my face with chocolate etc like i used to when i got my period, it only took me 12 weeks to realise that that was just another one of my EXCUSES. 'I've got my period so i can eat as much chocolate, chips, lollies and soft drink as i want' HELL NO you can't, deal with it like every other woman in the world and stick to your guns.

I can happily say now that this is not a RED flag for me anymore!!! Happy Happy Joy Joy

Ok so i am putting it out there my goal weight. I was around 70kgs pre babies so i thought i would go one better and crack the 70kg mark and shoot for 68kgs that's it. No reason other than i just want to get below 70kgs.

Pre season Task 1 - Introduce yourself

Hi Jazzy here, i'm 32 and live in Brisbane. I have 3 gorgeous, beautiful, fun loving kids that keep me on my toes. I have a wonderful husband who works hard to provide for our family. I am a stay at home Mum (best job in the world) and i have somehow lost myself in the housewife/mother roll.

This is my second round and through doing my first round i have managed to find myself again. Not only has this program helped me lose my extra baby weight i was holding onto BUT it has also given me a new lease on life. I have learnt so much about myself, have rediscovered the zest for life that i had before i 'got to busy' to do anything. I am so pumped for this round. I have so many goals that i want to achieve, most of them things that i would NEVER EVER see myself doing. And the funny thing is that i LOVE doing it, i love the food, i love the training, i love the early mornings, i love the sweat, i love the tears and most of all i love the LIFE changing journey that i am on.

So bring on Round 1 of the 12WBT 2012. To all my other 12WBTer's enjoy your journey to becoming a better version of YOURSELF.

My 12WBT journey

January 17 2012 .... this means that pre season started yesterday. Yah bloody hoooo. I could not wait for this round to kick off, i have been biting at the bit. This will be my second round of the Michelle Bridges 12 week body transformation program and the second round for my new found lease on life.

This program has taught me so much about myself. It has taught me that i am more than just a mum, housewife, sister and wife. I am an amazing strong, resilient, loving, inspiring, joyous, courageous, energetic, fun loving mumma. With all the daily chores and stresses that we have in life we sometimes lose OURSELVES. I am so glad that i signed up for this program. I found myself again. I have that zest for life back, i haven't had that since i had my first child. You kind of get lost in the whole new baby thing, eat, feed, change nappies, do the washing, cook dinner, clean the house and the cycle goes on then you have more babies and it just keeps on going on and on. Don't get me wrong i LOVE LOVE LOVE my kids, maybe a little bit to much because i was giving them ALL of ME and not saving any of it for myself.

But this is my year. My big girl is off to Prep, my other baby is off to Kindy and my baby boy is off to daycare. Which means ME time. During the last round i managed to lose 6.1kg and approx 48cm off of my body, that was only doing the program half heartedly. This round i am ALL IN. I am only a few kgs away from my goal weight so once i hit that i will be toning up this bad boy of a bod. I am looking forward to SMASHING all of my goals this year, and wholy moly don't i have heaps. ( I will post them a little later, so then i will be held accountable for them)

So this is the start of my journey to a healthier, happier, better version of MYSELF.
