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)

"Maybe soulmates
are just two ordinary people
who are too stubborn
to let the world pull them apart"

This little dog is not much good at walking or taking selfies. But we walked about 4kms I guess… I didn’t track it but it was a bit further than the 3.6km run I did the other day so I’m calling it 4 but the more important point is I’ve only got 500 steps to go to hit 10,000 for the day so I should be able to hit that pretty easily!

The plan is Ashley Conrad’s 21 day Clutch Cut it’s pretty dandy!

It’s all about supersetting and interval training. it’s only 3 weeks (today was day 1 of week 2) so I think once I’ve done it I’ll repeat it and do more sets (I’m currently doing around 3 rounds each workout but it recommends 3-6 rounds depending on fitness levels.)

It’s honestly been a really long time since I worked out by myself and actually pushed myself so hard I thought I would vomit. 

I found a program on bodybuilding.com which is 5 days per week for 3 weeks it pushes me really hard and it’s short enough that I’m not going to get bored and give up half way through

For 3 months now I haven’t know what I want for breakfast and it’s really starting to get on my nerves… Suggestions please internet?

So I bought myself this cute diary and I’m making a point of writing in it every night before I go to bed. 
I write down 1 thing in grateful for, 3 good things about my day, 3 things that need improving on and 1 goal for tomorrow. 
It’s really helped me change my attitude and mindset around to a really positive one over the last couple of weeks.

The noodle shop down the road burnt down and this makes me very sad

The sun is shining, my hair looks incredible straight out of bed, I have green tea and I’m eating sultana bran (must buy some more).
It’s been 3 months since I moved here and I am still yet to find my breakfast mojo, I can never decide what I want to eat… It’s becoming an issue
