The BIG Cook Up

So the first weekly challenge of the Michelle Bridges 12 Week Body Transformation is to do a MASSIVE cook up of some of the freezer friendly meals so when we are feeling lazy we’ve got a freezer full of meals ready so we are less temped to cheat with take-out etc.

So this weekend I’m going to set aside a couple of hours (yeah right it’ll probably take me all weekend) to prep, cook and package up meals to stock up my freezer with.

This is NECESSARY for my success as the only way I’ll eat properly and follow the plan is if it’s easy.

It was awesome when I first got home from the hospital with my son as my mum was making me freezer meals, so I was actually eating properly, because the only time I got to eat was zapping them in the microwave and whooshing them down before Riley woke up again.

I’d love to be able to afford something like Light & Easy home delivery or even better a personal chief LOL.

Anyway, so I’m going to attempt to cook up the following (list below) and hopefully the hubby will help me with the prep and cook. The meals are all less than 400cals per serve and I think I’m about to get a shock at how small the serves are.

# Baked Pasta with Sun-Dried Tomatoes, Spinach & Mozzarella

# Bean Nachos with Chilli Guacamole

# Broccoli & Zucchini Cheesy Bake

# Chicken, Pumpkin & Chickpea Korma

# Cottage Pie with Parmesan Potato Topping

# Cupcake Quiche

# Ricotta, Mushroom & Roasted Capsicum Cannelloni

# Spaghetti Bolognese with Lentils

# Spinach & Ricotta Cannelloni

# Not So Naughty Nachos

# Tuna & Vegie Lasagne

Yes a major life overhaul is due

I got my Young Living Essential Oils starter kit on the 28th (Distributor Id: 1495793). I’m So excited to start and share my journey to natural better health.10584016_1458230544432307_264373312076796027_n

My Journey with the Oils so Far:

Peace n Calming  Peace & Calming:

I have a major problem with “switching off” at night and find that this is helping 🙂 I’ve used this oil the last three nights when going to bed and have found that I’ve dropped off to sleep faster and while laying there waiting for sleepy land I’ve felt a lot more relaxed.

As some of you might know I’m about to partake in the 12WBT challenge to motivate myself to get active again and lose the extra pudge. At the same time I’m starting my journey with oils to find natural remedies (focusing on Pain, Depression and Anxiety) and create a happy and healthier home for myself and my family. I struggle with pain and can at times find myself eating Panadeine Forte like tic tacs, so Yes a major life overhaul is due.

So I’ll keep you posted on how I go and what I find.


I really would like my chin back!

So I have decided to take on Michelle Bridges 12 week body challenge.
To get to my ideal body weight + BMI I need to lose 25 kilos.
When I was pregnant and then breastfeeding with my son I lost ten kilos just from eating better. I was being a good girl and eating well because I was paranoid as what went through me went into him and I didn’t want to do anything to hurt him.
After going back to work I’ve put it all the weight back on plus some more. Now I’m not aiming to be model thin, it’s not my thing, I like a woman to have curve.  I’m aiming to be able to walk up the stairs at work without losing my breath lol. I want more energy. I want to be happy. I want to be healthy. I used to love walking, but now even that seems too hard. I’m hoping by signing up to this challenge that It’ll be able to give me the kick start I need to be motivated and get back on the wagon!!!
And I really would like my chin back!!!!
