My weight loss journey – Now or never!

My weight loss journey – Now or never!

I have wanted to do this for so long. I made up my mind to do it. Then I chickened out, and now finally I have decided that it is time. Time to stand up for myself and for others who are in the same boat as me. Being judged for your appearance without knowing the whole story. So yes, I am fat and overweight. My fault or not, it is what it is. There comes a time when whatever…

Our Christmas family holiday or not.

Our Christmas family holiday or not.

So 1 year ago I was pregnant with the McKenzie’s twins and Christmas was not the greatest because I was so tired. So I decided that we would go away for Christmas 2017 and chill. Go to a kid friendly place and let the kids just have a jol and us a relaxing time. So we asked around and decided on a place called Slanghoek Resort in Rawsonville. Never being to Slanghoek, the website looked amazing and we booked from…

You know you are the new “water wise Capetonian” when…….

You know you are the new “water wise Capetonian” when…….

1. You watch the weather forecast better than the USA governments CIA for terror threats. 2. You hear any unexpected rain at 2am, run out balls and boobs swinging, ass showing, putting drums, dustbins and even tupperware under the gutters and screaming at the kids to wake up and bring their sandpit buckets to help catch as much as possible even if its only a small buckets worth. 3. You welcome the old wives tale of a sore knee or…

How long is 3 minutes

How long is 3 minutes

So how long is 3 minutes? It can either be quick quick or fok long. Well let me tell you…… When you only have 3 minutes to get ready and out the door for an appointment or work, 3 minutes is quick quick, it feels like 20 seconds BUT if you are in a water shortage crisis and you are a “water warrior” and your aim is to save as much water as you possibly can because you don’t want…

There is still kindness in the world

There is still kindness in the world

I have to share this: There is a lesson or 2 in here. I took Connor (my 5yr old) to Pick n Pay and he sat in the trolley. This lovely well presented coloured lady stopped and asked me if he is a boy or a girl (due to the long hair) and that he is absolutely gorgeous. She asked him his name, how old he is and when his birthday was. Her birthday happened to be the same as…

Surrogacy – how it all began for me.

Surrogacy – how it all began for me.

Who goes through life thinking that one day they will become a surrogate for a couple that they hardly know? That you would carry a baby for them because for some medical reason they cant fall pregnant themselves and need help of someone like me. Well I am one of those people who just knew, that one day I would become a surrogate. Deep down I knew this was something I could do and probably would do. I was about…

Christmas….. Yay or bleh

Christmas….. Yay or bleh

So its been the Christmas holidays and season. Not sure about you but every year I try and make Christmas special. We put up the tree, we put out the nativity scene, we put decorations on the doors and mirrors and poor Shaun connects as many lights as he possibly can afford to the house to make me happy. I am lucky and grateful that Shaun gets off over the Christmas season so he can be home for the kids…

My love hate relationship with food and weight loss.

My love hate relationship with food and weight loss.

I remember when I was younger how easy it was to loose weight, pick it up and then loose it again. They say that as you get older it gets harder and harder. You dont really listen or take note until you get older and trying to shift a few extra kilo’s is like getting blood from a stone. THEN you get married, you get comfortable and the weight decides to creep back again when you not looking. Lets not…
