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)


scientists tell us that all water

is old water,

that there is no room for originality,

that everything is recycled.

the anguish of Achilles bleeding out

face-down in the Trojan dirt

mingles with that of a stockbroker caught

in the ebb and flow of the markets,

and what I am trying to say is that the tears

navigating south through the canyons on your face

may have once wet the cheeks

of Alexander the Great

for the same reason.

At my job at the moment our target market is like fashiony businessy women which they constantly refer to the “Girl On Top” girls. Because we have to embrace that look and market as well they always refer to us in emails or marketing materials as GOT girls.
I automatically read this as Game of Thrones girls and it makes me simultaneously confused and proud because the game of throne girls are badass

Our neighbors decided it was a good idea to have a bonfire and play (terrible) music really loudly, which annoyed me but they’d turned it down by 9:30.

Now someone down the street is playing bongos/some sort of African drums really loudly and it’s setting all the dogs in the neighborhood off!

It’s 10pm on a Saturday night and I’m in bed complaining about the people having parties.

When did I become an old person?

Fell asleep at 1am, woke up without an alarm at 6:30am.

What is this body?

"If you sleep eight hours per day and you live to be 60, you’ve slept for 20 years. That is reason enough for me to get up the first time my alarm goes off."
