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 Melbourne 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)

We all used to do weigh in Wednesdays and tumblr Tuesdays and throw back Thursdays and stuff? Them was the good old days of fitblr blogging that brought structure to my life

I dont think this picture accurately depicts just how delicious this toasted cheese sammich is.
Things have been quiet here, not because i havent been doing anything, I’ve been running and gyming regularly and my eating has been at about 85% on point. I just haven’t felt like writing anything, Marty’s been in Tassie so I’ve been feeling a bit homesick/lonely (Never letting him go home without me again! I cried the other day because he ran into my mum walking the dog!) 
But I’ve been trying to get myself into a routine of getting up early while he’s been away. The plan was to get up at 6:30 and do some work stuff until 8:30 and then be out the door for a run or the gym by 8:45. 
Monday was great! I got heaps of work done and then I ran 5kms.
Tuesday I turned my alarm off and went back to sleep until 8:30
Wednesday same same as tuesday.
Today I got up just before 7 but I have to be at work at 8:45 so I kinda forced myself out of bed.

That was boiled eggs and toast for breakfast. I went to grit this morning, the couple I live with last night said it was super hard (they’ve just started doing a mix of cardio and strength) and they almost vomited. I don’t know if it was cause my weights were too low cause they scared me or the fact that I had to stop doing any of the jumping moves half way through because of my ankle but it was seriously the easiest grit class I’ve ever done. I’ve basically only been doing body pump since I hurt my ankle because it’s the only class that doesn’t involve lots of jumping and bouncing Plus it’s my favourite, but I think I’m going to start incorporating more of the grit series into my week. 

I’m never ever every going back to body attack
