It’s funny really. You know how you visualise what something is going to be like, then reality hits, and it’s NOTHING like you had envisioned??
.
That was how I felt about the reality of being a stay at home Mum.
.
Before Nick and I got married it was discussed very early on that I wanted to be a SAHM. I felt very strongly about being home with my babies in their formative years, and wanted to be there for all their milestones. Luckily for me, Nick also agreed that’s how he would want our future family raised, and so there really was no issue when I said I was ready to retire at 16wks pregnant! #likeactually 😂 #donthateme
.
So for the next 23wks I nested and set myself up for the next stage of my life. Those 23wks were probably the most stress free, relaxed, best weeks of my life!!! My days revolved around the beach, the couch, and the kitchen!! 😂😂 (hence why I put on over 35kgs!! 😳😳🐳🐳)
.
And then my baby arrived... 😳😬
.
Don’t get me wrong, I was very much wrapped up in the newborn bliss bubble for the first 6mths.... But then reality crept in....
.
My days were not filled with ladies lunches, beach days, and coffee catch ups. In fact, most days I was lucky to get out of my baby puked pjs. And the days that I did, it was my all black active wear, which was ironic, as I was far from active.
.
I was SO exhausted, lonely AF and I resembled more of a beached whale then a beach babe. 😭😭 SAHM life couldn’t have let me down more...
.
I have to admit, the next 8mths were a blur. Yes there were lots of happy moments I’m sure, but it’s sad because when I look back at this time there are no pics of me with my baby. I was too fat and I hated what I saw. And that’s pretty shit considering this is the time when I should’ve been making memorable moments.
.
The turning point was a trip to Thailand with a gf and when I saw the pics I wanted to curl up and die. I didn’t recognise myself. I hadn’t let myself go, in fact I was training hard and eating super clean, but what I was doing wasn’t working. So I messaged a friend that had what I wanted..
.
And that was how my journey began.... (continued in comments)

Eight weeks in to my second 16wk challenge, and despite the last month being a cheese, wine & chocolate festival, my body hasn’t really changed. Woo! .
That’s the thing when you are conscious about living a healthy life - you know it’s what you do every day, not what you do every once in a while that will make the difference.
.
So every day I show up for me the best way I can, even when I don’t feel like it. I fuel my body with dense nutrients when I get the chance. I move my body every day, even if it means just walking. I go to bed early because I can’t ever guarantee that I won’t be woken up a few hours later, and sleep is life. I cleanse once a week, because my body operates better and I love the energy! And when I do go out, I enjoy it! Because #balance! 🍾🥂🍫
.
We are 21 days out from our next Aussie summer and I’m feeling great! I don’t look like I did when I was 23, but I have the energy & confidence of what I did back then, and that is EVERYTHING! And that’s why I’m so passionate about sharing this lifestyle with other mums. I want you to feel AMAZING!! I want you to feel CONFIDENT!! And I want you to live your life in full, not sitting on the sidelines watching on because you’re worrying about how you look and what others may think!
.
Do not wait until the new year to start making the changes you need to be making now. And If you can’t do it for yourself, do it for your family, because they deserve the very best of you too.
.
If you are needing help and don’t know where to start, we have a fantastic support group in The BodyLove Tribe and we would love to welcome you with open arms. Please DM me or drop a 💕 below if you would like more info, and I’ll be in contact shortly.
.
Happy Friday and enjoy this sunshine this weekend!

Big love

Ok. So I’ve totally thrown back to the last time I was wearing a dress to get in the spirit of The Melbourne Cup, because I worked out the last time I actually did something for it was 6 or 7 years ago!! 😱🤦‍♀️😿 #mumlife
.
I used to LOVE celebrating the Melbourne Cup!! I always would go to Randwick on the day, but I’ve come to realise  they so havent made it Mum friendly!! Case in point:
.
• Like, how am I going to get my current babysitter to babysit when she’s at school on a Tuesday?? (And let’s be honest, no one else would be available because they’d either be working or celebrating the Melbourne Cup!)
.
• and why do they make the main race at 3.15pm??? Clearly that’s the time school finishes! Why should I have to choose between getting my child and watching the race??? Like, actually???!!! 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️
.
To be honest, the last point is my main pet peeve, as even if I was to go to a lunch or something, I’d still have to miss the main race to pick up my children. And let’s be honest, I wouldn’t be able to drive to get them anyway as I’m such a lightweight in the drinks department, so really, I wouldn’t even be able to drink! 🥂🥂 #whatsthepoint
.
So I guess it would seem I’ll be missing the Melbourne Cup for the next few years, or at least until my kids can walk home from school! For those of you celebrating today, enjoy! I hope you win!!! 🏆
.
PS if anyone has any tips I’d be grateful!! It’s the one day of the year we punt!🙏🙏

I love him with every ounce of me. He is my rock, my best friend, and there isn’t a day that goes by where I’m not grateful that he is a part of my life. 💕💕
.
It’s days like today though that remind me how amazing he is...
.
He worked in 38•C heat, on a Saturday, then came home to take his boy out on the boat for the night, as he’s been asking all week. He could’ve said no. He hasn’t been well, he’s exhausted, he would’ve loved to have had an early night at home and a sleep in in the morning. He deserves it! But he said YES! And without hesitation, he came home from work and started getting ready to go back out again.
.
I know he will have a great time tonight, and I know this is just the beginning of Nick & Reef’s little fishing adventures, but I am just so SO grateful that he puts his little family before himself every day. We are his WHY and tonight he is making a little boys wish come true!✨✨
.
I love you @nickclarkone and Thank you for being the amazing man that you are! 😘💕🙈

Every second Friday a bunch of mum’s will be coming together to talk all things biz, motherhood, & just a general celebration that we survived another week - with champagne!💃🥂🎉

It won’t be too rowdy because most of us have school pick up afterwards, but it is a nice way to bounce ideas and just catch up!

When I think of this concept I always like to think of a room that’s full of furniture. You find a chair that you love, but if you haven’t created enough space for it, it’s just not going to fit! You may have to throw out a coffee table, change the rug, and get new cushions for it to work in that space, but once you have released all of the “stuff” that just isn’t working in that room, the chair fits and becomes a key feature - just because you created space for it!
.
Always be open to the possibility that what you need will find you – if you have created enough space for it.

💕Big love 💕

Like, actually?? 🤔
. ‘Cause I’m a vibe person, and I have to say, that although people say they’re happy, their vibes are telling me a totally different story. 🤷‍♀️
.
Let me just say firstly, that it’s totally ok not to be happy all of the time. In fact, it would be a little weird if you were. BUT... if you’re unhappy a lot (and I’m not talking depression - completely different thing!), but you’re just not finding any joy in what you’re doing in your life, (you may be moping around, whinging, complaining, bitching, etc.) then you need to understand that this is a CHOICE you’re making.
.
I remember this quote from the amazing book THE FOUR AGREEMENTS and thought I’d share it:
.
“When you feel good, everything around you is good, when everything around you is great, everything makes you happy. You are loving everything that is around you, because you are loving yourself. Because you like the way you are. Because you are happy with your life. You are happy with the movie that you are producing, happy with your agreements with life. You are at peace, and you are happy. You live in that state of bliss where everything is so wonderful, and everything is so beautiful.  In that state of bliss you are making love all the time with everything that you perceive.” 🙌🙌🙌🙌
.
Is this how you’re feeling?? Are you even a little bit close to this??? Would you call anything in your life remotely blissful?? I HOPE SO!!!! 🙏🙏🙏
.
But if you answered a big fat NO, then please, start making different choices!!! YOU are in charge of your own happiness. No one else can be responsible for it!!!
.
You have one life! Stop whinging, and please realise you are one choice away from being HAPPIER!
.
Big love
