    Kez Gets Physical 2019: Week 4.

    To find out what I’m doing, why I’m doing it and what my goals are, click here! I can’t believe it’s been 4 weeks already! Here are some of the notable things about my week: I wasn’t perfect! Let’s just be real here for a minute haha. I usually give myself one ‘treat’ meal a week. Usually something gross and greasy. Old habits die hard: also, life is short! Sure, you don’t want to make it shorter (haha) but there’s no fun in depriving yourself completely of everything. If there’s cake for a birthday, I’ll eat cake! This week I did both a couple of times! I ate my feelings…

    Kez Gets Physical 2019: Week 3.

    If you’d like to read the background on what this is all about and why, click here I was not sure how this week would go, because I had some little hiccups that had the potential to derail me : a social meet up on a gym day and a family birthday celebration the day before my weigh in (I weigh myself officially each Sunday morning). I ended up impressing myself, which has been a great feeling! Here are some of the notable things about my 3rd week of #kezgetsphysical! I got 5 lots of exercise in! It took a lot of dedication but I really enjoyed it. I did…

    Kez Gets Physical 2019: Week 2

    If you’d like to read the background on what I’m doing and why I am doing it, click here This week didn’t totally go to plan! If I could give it a key word or a theme, it would be PERIOD. Yep. I had an unexpected shark week event. It really wasn’t in my plans! It slowed me down a bit but I think I had a positive attitude and did my best! I should have known something was up the day before it arrived as I was SO HUNGRY haha. So let me tell you about my second week of renewing my healthy living habits… Yep. My period. Being…

    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…

    How I feel about my body after having two babies.

    There’s nothing I love more than a good Chrissy Teigen tweet. If you’re not familiar, where have you been?? Kidding. If you aren’t familiar with her, she’s a hilarious multi talented woman (and mother of two) who just happens to be married to singer John Legend. She’s massive on Twitter, you guys. This morning I woke up to find reason #21937 to love her. the thinnest I’ve ever been was right after Luna. Postpartum depression. I’LL TAKE THESE POUNDS AND THIS FEELING! — christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) March 30, 2019 Luna is her first child and Miles is her second (a little baby John Legend clone). Chrissy was first known to…

    Sometimes self care can happen in a surprising way.

    I’ve come to realise that this year has been quite stressful. Thankfully nothing tragic or truly life shatteringly negative has happened (and I do try to practice gratitude whenever I can), but it’s just been a few months of emotional and physical drudgery, overall. I guess I’m disappointed because I had such high hopes for 2019 (after a very crazy and at times chaotic 2018) and while it is certainly far from over, it has been confronting having to adjust those expectations and just try to live in the moment. I am not one to play the victim, though. I am a big believer that while I do not have…

    Getting caught in the rain (and accidentally running for the first time since the Little Miss was born).

    I went for a run yesterday. Yes, thank you for your applause. Really, it’s not necessary. It wasn’t on purpose. It was a total accident. Definitely not planned. I was getting shitty about my recent lack of exercise. The Little Miss is always changing her day time sleep routine (I mean can I even call it that?) and I had stopped even thinking about getting on the treadmill. In all honesty, I’ve been tired and lazy and eating my body weight in carbs (and not even the good-ish ones). So, when the Little Miss woke from a nap in the late morning, I had a choice between housework or self…

    Kez Gets Physical: 3 months post partum.

    OK, everyone. It’s time for me to revive my ‘Kez Gets Physical’ series. It’s an ongoing, kind of sporadic, bunch of blog posts about my efforts to live a healthy lifestyle and keep myself accountable! via GIPHY It’s been 3 months since the Little Miss was evicted from my uterus and I think it’s time for me to get myself back on track! I am not suggesting that every mum has to do this so soon and there’s absolutely no pressure to get my ‘post baby body’ bangin’ and sexy and ready for a bikini photo shoot. Fuck that! I am just doing this for my health and my energy…

    F*ck yeah, self care!

    Oh, hey! How are ya? I’m pretty good because this week is my birthday week. You’ll find that I’m not one of those shy, don’t like to celebrate types. I think birthdays are frickin’ rad and that everyone deserves to feel a bit special as they reach the milestone of being alive for another year! I’m even OK with ageing! While I’m not always loving the look and texture of my skin, I’m pretty stoked with the stuff that makes me feel wiser each year. I wouldn’t trade that for anything at this point! Not even the completely on point, dewy skin of an 18 year old! OK, maybe…I don’t know…
