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)

Melbourne tumblrinas!
IM COMING FOR YOU!!

Let’s catch up?

Dear Melbourne, you are my one true love, I’m sorry I left you for the promise of warmer winters and tropical sunshine. I know now that I was wrong and while 25 degree days during winter was a nice change from the cold miserable wet winter that you always provide for us, I couldn’t keep away. So I’ve loaded my belongings, my life, into my little blue car and I’m coming back to you. I promise to never leave you again. Love always Sam

I work with the most wonderful group of girls who bought me this bracelet because I’m leaving. I honestly feel so lucky to have met such a great group of girls and I’m so lucky to get to call them my friends #portmans #emmaandroe #lucky #friendship

I was kinda insulted that Marty insisted on showing me how to check the oil in my car before he left today “I know how to check my oil, I’m not that dumb”… Turns out that while I do know how to check my oil, I had no idea how to open my bonnet

Allowing myself one episode of American horror story while I mope in bed (which is now just a mattress on the floor). I dropped Marty off at the airport and it’ll be 6 weeks before I see him again which makes me sad, but I’ll be ok one episode and then I’m getting up and packing and cleaning and being productive with my day.

Forgot to photograph dinner again tonight, neither of us could be bothered cooking or going out for dinner so we just ordered takeaway and ate in between sorting the last bits and pieces for the move. 
Marty flies out tomorrow and I’m really not looking forward to it, I’m going to miss him lots and it will be December before I see him next 😔 
But the girls from work are taking me out for dinner and cocktails tomorrow night to cheer me up (and so I’ll be hungover for my last shift apparently!)

I know this doesn’t help the fact that people think I come to work and just try everything on (but it’s my job) but I love this dress!!
