It's funny, at the beginning of this journey, 12 weeks seemed like a really long time. In reality, it has just been the blink of an eye. I am so proud and feel such an achievement to say that I am now in my 11th week of 6 days per week exercise and clean, healthy eating and I've never felt better. I've never felt more motivated to continue this way of life and although my official 12WBT journey is coming to an end, I'm more determined than ever to continue this way of living.

This week I have dropped another 900grams, which means that in the last 11 weeks I have said goodbye to 14.1kgs. By the end of next week, I'd love to be able to round that up to an even 15kgs - wish me luck!

I am really starting to notice a change in the shape of my body, the way my clothes fit (or in most cases are too big!) but most of all, I am amazed by the change in my way of thinking. Confession time, this week, I purchased the new Coles brand peanut butter ice-cream - I've wanted to try it for a while and thought I'd give myself a little 'treat'. I was expecting to fall in love with it, but to be honest, I wasn't overly impressed and all I could think of was that I was eating empty calories and I knew how hard I would need to work to burn them off. I would much rather have treated myself to 2 squares of Lindt 75% Cocoa chocolate and known that I was getting my sweet fix, in the healthiest possible way.

In this journey, your mind is your biggest muscle - the stronger your mind, the stronger your will power and determination. Image source: freedigitalphotos.net


Michelle recently said in one of her mindset videos that until you have lived this way for 2 years, it is easy to break new habits and fall back to old habits pretty quickly. In fact, it only takes 2 weeks to establish new habits. So, in order to be the best version of myself, this journey just got real. It doesn't end for me next week. This is just the beginning. I know what I need to do, I have proven I can do it - so now I just need to keep JFDI!

This week, I am going to finish the official journey with a bang. I'm going to give 110% in my workouts and ensure my nutrition is clean. Stay tuned for my final wrap up next week.
