An Introduction

Confession: I have no idea where to start. I just know that this – blogging, carving out my own little space on this giant world wide web is something I want to do. I have no idea how far I’m going to take it, or where it’s going to take me.

I’m 32.

I’m part freelance writer & marketing consultant. Part lady of leisure.  Part success, part failure. Mostly a work in progress. Sometimes it feels like the “free”part is the only thing I get out of freelancing, other times it’s an awesome way to make a living.

I have three great loves – The Blondes (my partner of just over 5 years and our recently adopted elderly Labrador named Chance) and Jasper, my first love and big black Labrador who lives with my Mum. I like dogs more than I like people.

I recently moved to the country and while I initially dreamed of growing veggies, hand raising baby cows and living off the land it has been a struggle. It can be isolating at the best of times, and a nightmare if you’re as opposed to change as I am.

Part of me wants to homestead, part of me wants to pack a bag and just be a nomad, travelling and adventuring all over the world. Mostly I just want to win lotto so I have enough money to do both.

Screenshot 2014-02-12 00.05.05I used to weigh 146kg. I now weigh 98kg. I still claim a 50kg loss as I did get down to 94kg at one stage but have been gaining and losing the same 4kg for the last year or so but still managed to complete the Tough Mudder obstacle course in August last year.

I thought I’d have my shit together by the time I was 25. I moved the goal post to 30 but now even 35 is seeming like a pipe dream. 148 Percent stands for the amount of weight I would have lost by the time I reach my goal weight, and also for the amount of effort I want to put into living each day to the full from here on in.

    I like animals more than people too – they tend to love unconditionally and without judgement and trust explicitly.

    You should be SO proud of yourself, 50kg is amazing!! I’m so glad you replied to my comment on Woogsworld and let me know that you had a blog, I can’t wait to follow your journey! I’m embarking on a 66kg weightloss journey at the minute x

    • Thanks so much! Here I am being all “Read my blog” and didn’t ever write another entry. Hopefully that is going to change from NOW! Hope you’re in a good spot with your journey – I feel like I’m treading water at the moment but I guess that’s better than sinking!

  6. Good on you, Chelsea! I’m so glad you’ve just gone for it and started this blog. Who knows where it might take you? Exciting!
