    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: 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…

    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…

    Kez Gets Physical: Week 8 Update

    Well well well. I cannot believe it. The end of the school term is finally here! The Little Mister finishes tomorrow and it’s the  holidays! I don’t know who is more excited. OK, it’s me. This also means that my super strict Kez Gets Physical mode relaxes a little until the school term begins again. You know, because life is short and Christmas is yummy and all that. In saying that, I have learned a lot during this term of better habits. I know that I don’t want to slack off and not exercise and eat carb heavy meals every day, even when I’ve told myself I don’t have to.…

    Kez Gets Physical: Week 6 update.

    Hello, hello. It’s that time of the week again! The time when I let you know how my efforts at healthier living have been progressing for the past 7 or so days. I’ve been eating a pretty low carb diet (it seems to suit me) and generally trying to be more active. I’ve been using the school term as a time based motivator. I figure there are more school days than holidays in a year, so being far more disciplined during the term seems like a good idea. It’s also a good time for me to keep my arse in line, because I have to live by a stricter routine…

    Kez Gets Physical: Week 5 update.

    Hello, peeps! I’m checking in for the fifth week in a row, to let you know how I’m tracking with my healthy living efforts. I’m glad I’m recording this stuff, because I want to be able to remember that all of this was actually possible, after I’d convinced myself over the past few years that it wasn’t. Here’s where I’m at… Look, I had a few setbacks in the weight loss department during week 4 and it was a little disheartening. I can only put it down to my cycle (and I am not talking about bike riding) and fluid retention. I felt yucky and bloated too, despite eating all the…

    Kez Gets Physical: Week 3 Update.

    I can’t believe I’m about to start the 4th week of living healthier (again)! That also means that the school term is almost halfway through – that is crazy! WHAT IS HAPPENING?! I just want to say that I’ve been really enjoying eating a bit cleaner. For the most part I haven’t missed my processed carbs, anything made of potato, white bread or pastries. For the MOST part. Of course I have a couple of moments where the weather is nice, and I imagine myself tucking into some amazing ‘dude food’ (because I’m clearly a dude or food marketing people are clearly sexist) at the pub, but I have resisted…

    Kez Gets Physical: Week 2 Update.

    It’s been a big week for me, emotionally. Some of the (in)fertility stuff has done my head in and I spent a lot of time feeling utterly drained. Still, I am glad to be coming out of that headspace and after the Little Mister let me sleep in this morning (it was AMAZING), I feel ready to take on a new week of better health (mentally and physically)! So here’s my update for Week 2 and may I say I really am glad I’ve decided to document this “journey” (sorry – had to use the word) on my blog because just thinking about what I would have to tell you at…

    Kez Gets Physical: Week 1 Update

    So I’m one week into my renewed efforts at getting healthier. Seven days, you guys! I thought I’d check in weekly, to keep myself accountable and share anything I’ve learned. Where I’m at… I’ve lost 2.3kg this week! Of course, that’s the easy 2.3kg. Those are the couple of kilos that come off quickly when I do stuff like not drinking soft drink or having dessert at night. Or you know, not eating my weight in potato chips. Still, after months and months of plateauing and not being motivated to make real changes, this is the most significant progress I’ve made in a long time. Weight just doesn’t drop off…
