    Kez Gets Physical 2019: Week 1.

    For the background on what I’m doing and why, click here This week was the first week of the 3rd school term of the year. I am thankful that it wasn’t as chaotic as I predicted it would be! The Little Mister didn’t start school until the Wednesday, so I didn’t really begin my new healthier living plan until then. I felt like launching into new/better habits that day would be easier because I’d feel like there was a bit more structure and routine, which would help me to not fail before I’d even started! I had found myself to be psychologically preparing for the whole week before that. I…

    Kez Gets Physical 2019: It’s time.

    I cannot procrastinate anymore. It is time to grab life by the balls (WTF – why have I opened with that visual??) and just make shit happen. Make what happen? My health. I need to work on my health. My physical and mental wellbeing. I wasn’t originally sure whether I wanted to blog about my efforts to live healthier again. I felt like I did my dash in my second last post on the topic, where I had all these grand plans and then didn’t follow through. I then posted some realistic goals when I was about 3 months post partum after having the Little Miss, but I still went…

    2019 Weekly Wrap Up #17

    I’ve been documenting my year one week at a time on the blog! It’s just a way to remember and reflect. Also a great way for my lovely readers/followers to catch up on what’s been happening in my life. Here is the 17th week of 2019 (yes I am very far behind)! 23 April – Tuesday I was stoked that the Little Miss slept from 10:30pm to 4:30am straight last night. Yep – that’s the best she’s done in a while! She seemed in better spirits today as a result, which was so good to see! My gut was not perfect yet so I skipped the gym, but it was…

    Taking Stock: July 2019

    Oh, hey there! How are you? We’re just kicking off the first week of the school holidays here! I’m trying not to be an anxious idiot about it. Often I stress about whether we’re doing too much, not enough etc etc. It’s ridiculous. We will all be just fine! I forget our kids are so lucky – we travel or go camping on SO many school holidays throughout the year! A little break from doing that won’t kill anyone! I think some of the guilt comes from when I was pregnant with the Little Miss and didn’t feel up to much, so it made me feel like I was letting…

    2019 Weekly Wrap Up #16

    My 16th week of 2019 was a pretty good one! I feel like that’s been a rarity this year, unfortunately. Not that our problems have been massively devastating (something I am very grateful for), but it’s just been a weirdly stressful year, where all the little not-so-totally-awesome things have kind of added up and accumulated more than I’d like! It wasn’t perfect (nothing is and that’s OK) but it was really great to have some little wins and of course it was Easter time and my birthday week! This has been a nice one to relive, as I’ve read back through my paper journal and started typing… If you’re not…

    5 shows I’ve binge watched #4

    I don’t know about you guys, but I am always thinking about what I am going to watch next on TV or on a streaming app. I mean, I do think about other things, but this is my lovely relaxation moment, you know? My favourite part of the evening is when the kids are in bed and I can snuggle up with Mr Unprepared and watch something in the quiet together. I know. Wild, right? I love so much that in 2019 we can CHOOSE what we want to watch at any given time. Remember the days when we had to try our luck with what was on like 5…

    2019 Weekly Wrap Up #15

    This week (9-15 April) has been a bit difficult to write about for the blog. Some big, emotional things were going on at the time and there were lots of stories that were/are not mine to tell. While I wrote a lot in my personal journal at this time, I have obviously had to leave some things out, publicly. Just know that during this week, I really learned a lot about myself and life in general too. It was hard but it was a time that brought people together. 9 April – Tuesday I was supposed to go to the gym today, but the Little Miss had a really rough…

    2019 Weekly Wrap Up #14

    The 14th week of 2019 was full of anxiety, but also ended up being surprisingly productive. Also, there was that time on the Monday when the Little Mister randomly spewed and I actually saw it as a blessing in disguise… Anyway, we’ll get to that bit! 2 April – Tuesday I was starting to get anxious about starting at the gym this coming Thursday. I know it sounds silly but I feel like I have an insurmountable list of tasks to tick off before I can even get started. I messaged my friends S and A to ask questions (silly ones to regular gym goers I am sure) and they…

    Happy List #54

    Oh hey! I haven’t done one of these in a long time, but I’m feeling the need to focus on some positive stuff after a chaotic couple of weeks! The whole gratitude/positivity thing is not for everyone (for some it feels forced or whatever), but it often helps bring me back to a good head space when I’ve been feeling anxious or angry or just out of sorts. At the end of most days, we practice ‘3 things’ with the Little Mister. We will tell him three things that made us happy during the day and he will tell us his. It’s my not so stealthy way of trying to…

    2019 Weekly Wrap Up #13

    OK, so I have fallen way behind in my weekly chatty life updates. I am still only up to the end of March, you guys. I think sometimes I put off writing these posts because some weeks are better than others and some are a little hard to relive. I also know these posts are probably not always exciting. Just gonna own that and be OK with it. That’s life! But the thing is, it’s a record for me to keep and sometimes it inspires me to write other content too! Also, I know that I have to write what I would read, if that makes sense. It’s probably not…
