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)

The Healthy Hundred 
Day 26/100
Today’s workout was cleaning and sorting my bedroom. I’m slowly getting rid of the furniture in my bedroom and it was a complete mess I couldn’t even walk through this morning. It’s still messy and pretty much everything that is on the bed in the second picture is now on the floor but that’s a job for tomorrow! I also deep cleaned the bathroom which I hate doing but maybe if I don’t put it off for so long it wouldn’t be so gross and take so long and wouldn’t be half as bad!! 
Plank today was so impressive! I got to 1:40 (which I failed to do yesterday) and still had some in me so I kept going!! 
I also meal planned for the week and THINK I finally have my macros down, off to the supermarket tomorrow to grocery shop and meal prep! I’m going to start posting my macros plus my daily weight during there’s healthy hundred recaps see how I go with logging my weight everyday opposed to once a week.

Not even kidding when I say this was one of the best meals I’ve ever eaten. So much deliciousness, so much pork belly in my belly, so amazing! Plus the company was retry alright too.

Thanks for a wonderful night Sandy and Ori.

Day 25/100
I really need to get my snacking and eating under control… I haven’t been bingeing or anything but I have bought chocolate bars every single time I went to the supermarket over the last couple days. (Yup that includes today when I just ducked into coles to buy sandy a Powderade… Bought myself a twix and only ate half of it before she turned up so i hid it in my bag before she saw… Yup… I did that…) I’m going to sit down and create a proper meal plan for the week tomorrow, work out my calories and macros and try to stick to it! As close as I can!
In other news I didn’t get a chance to plank after I did yoga this afternoon and completely forgot about it until I was making the collage for this post, ended up planking on the bathroom floor, not the 1:40 I was aiming for but I just couldn’t hold it any longer :-( maybe tomorrow!
Tomorrow’s a big day, planning on doing an epic clean of the apartment and start photographing everything which I’m planning to sell before the move (which is basically everything) and posting ads.

It’s been raining for 5 days straight now and I’ve given up on trying to do anything nice with my hair…

Day 24/100
I’m almost a quarter of the way through!! 
I didn’t go to the gym tonight because of the boob situation, but I went home and ran as much as I could before it got dark… Not great but better than nothing!

Did not pack a sports bra today… Did not pack a top with a built in bra… Was planning on doing cardio… What are the chances I knock myself the hell out?? Do I go home and workout there? Or do I risk the boobs and workout with my normal bra???

Start of 2014: 74.7kgs (164.6lbs)
Last week: 72.2kgs (159.1lbs)
This week: 73.3kgs (161.5lbs)
Difference: +1.1kgs (2.4lbs)
Total loss for 2014: 1.4kgs (3.0lbs)

Well this was disappointing… And if I wasn’t able to see the changes in my body I probably would care a lot more… Just keep on keeping on.

Day 23/100
Forgot to post this before I went to bed last night! Actually if I’m honest I went in to look at my calories and got so caught up in tweaking my goals that I completely forgot about it! I want to start taking more notice of my macros but it’s like a freaking jigsaw puzzle isn’t it?!?!? More protien, less carbs, less fat, more calories… It’s exhausting trying to make it all fit!! 
My body is sore from this workout (probably because I upped all my weights) and it’s nice to have that feeling again… I’m glad that next week is my last week with this plan and I’ll be changing it up again soon

"Get excited about the little things. About wearing a new outfit for the first time. About Sunday brunches with your best friends. About the new cute guy in your class. About finding an extra dollar in your pocket. About anything that even remotely makes you happy because as you grow up, passions fade and enthusiasm gets mistaken for foolishness. So don’t let the grey world stop you from shining."
