My name is SamanthaJane, But since I like you, you can call me Sam.

Welcome to my corner of the Internet! I use this space to document my fitness journey in all it's many shapes and forms

On the 9th October 2011 I was the first person in my family to run a marathon. and the following year I ran my second marathon

Since then I lost my love affair with running and I'm trying to find my place in the world of fitblrs and weightloss.

I'll write about other stuff too, because my life isn't just about running and losing weight, I'm much, much more than that. I'm a photographer and filmmaker. I'm a daughter, sister and girlfriend living far away from those who I love. I'm a Tasmanian living in Mackay trying to make a life for myself.

So take your time, look around.My world is yours to share.

HW: 82kgs

SW: 79kgs (December 2010)

CW: 73.0kgs (January 2014)

Went to bed early tonight, feeling sad and I’m not really sure why. Boy came and gave me lots of cuddles and now he’s finishing off some stuff before coming to bed. 
Forgot to photograph my dinner but I had 3 chicken skewers and salad and it was yum!

I’m pretty upset that Miley’s bangerz tour is going on during my move. I’m spending 10 days driving down the east coast of Australia and I can’t even coordinate it to see one show anywhere!!!

Weigh in Wednesday 

Starting weight: 77.6kgs (171lbs)
Last week: 77.0kgs (169.7lbs)
This week: 75.5kgs (166.4lbs)
Difference: -1.5kgs (3.3lbs)
Total difference: -2.1kgs (4.6lbs)

I’m feeling really positive about this! As you can see from the graph I spent most of this week at 76.0kgs and I would have been happy to stay there for weigh in today but to drop the extra 0.5kgs was a bonus! Turns out when you do stick to things it works! Normally I would have seen the same weight 3 days in a row and said “stuff it this isn’t working anyways” and just stuffed my face and laid about the house doing nothing. 

This is a really good start to the month
Feeling good, feeling good.
