    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 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…

    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…

    Sunday brain dump.

    Why hello, Sunday. It’s almost the start of a new week (thanks Captain Obvious). Sunday is the day when there are usually attempts made to prep for the oncoming shit show that is known as 5 days of school runs and crazy evenings full of witching hour nonsense (I once described it as bitching hour and someone sweetly and naively asked me if it was a typo – bless their cotton socks). I’ve decided that I am not thinking enough during the daylight hours lately, but I am doing more than enough thinking at 2am in the morning. It’s go go go on autopilot and the immediacy of putting out…

    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…

    The Happy List #49

    Well, hello there Monday! How the hell are you? I am glad it’s a new week. Last week was quite emotionally draining. I made the most of it and there were definitely lots of positives to be experienced, but I think that the craziness that was my March finally hit me. You know when you’re in survival mode, so everything’s go go go and you don’t have time to think or even feel? And then you finally come back to a baseline of normality and it’s a bit of a crash? That. So I’ve decided to start this fresh week with a focus on the positives! Here are some things…

    Kez Gets Physical: Let’s try that again!

    Look, I had great intentions when term 1 of the school year began. I was going to work really hard on being one healthy little mofo and have amazing success like I did at the end of last year. Then life got in the way. In hindsight, I really did have some odds stacked against me. While it could be argued that there is still no excuse for not living as healthily as possible, realistically, I was going to struggle. I was sick for half of the term and the other half, I was undergoing intensive fertility treatments (no – I’m not pregnant – feel free to spread the word…

    Kez Gets Physical: Non Scale Victories.

    Oh boy. I felt a bit embarrassed by my huge proclamation of how amazing everything was going to go with my healthy living habits once school returned for term 1 this year. Because it hasn’t exactly gone to plan! The first week was stressful – I (along with Mr Unprepared) had a very important (in)fertility appointment the day before school went back and the Little Mister then had staggered starts to his pre-primary career (it’s his first year of full time school). This led to both comfort eating and me just not getting my head around the fact that the holidays were over! The routine wasn’t fully in place yet!…

    Kez Gets Physical: Term 1, 2017!

    Oh my goodness. As I type this, the Little Mister is having his first day of pre-primary. His first year of full time school is beginning (although he’s only attending two days this week). I have just spent a few minutes walking around my house in awe of the silence. It’s kind of nice being able to move freely without having my every move questioned and being nagged while I’m in the toilet – the last couple of weeks of the holidays damn near broke me haha. So. Term 1 has begun for the Unprepared household and that means it’s time for me to kick my arse into gear with…
