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)

-You become emotionally attached.
-You can’t hug them whenever you want to which is something you often forget.
-You find people who don’t judge you. At all.
-You have to learn time zones. That’s a real bummer.
-You find people who love you for you.
-You sometimes cry because you just love them so much and get super emotional when you realize they are thousands of miles away from you.

😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭

- My nana is doing so much better recently
- this makes my mum happy which makes me happy too
- wedding talks with sandy
- when Marty pulls me closer in his sleep
- the beautiful weather
- my body lately (I’d still like to be smaller and to jiggle less but I’m starting to love it as it is)
- having more photography shoots lined up
- finally starting to feel settled up here and coming to terms with the fact that Perth may not happen and being ok with that too
- working tomorrow and Sunday (for the double time pay!)

Marty has a training day in town so he’s taken my car and I’m forced to be productive at home
