It’s Carnival

26 Aug

Today I had an amazing reminder of how far I have come.

Me last year


I remember feeling like a super star that day. People say I looked great, but looking back I just think “yuk”.

And I know by the time the year was up I was even bigger.

I won’t be doing costume this year mainly because I can’t afford it but also because I don’t want to look at another set of pictures and think “I look fat”.

I went to carnival today with the Spartan Fam.

I cropped my t shirt and really had very minor body worries. I’m far from where I want to be but so much closer than I was.


I’m pretty sure there is even a hint of abs visible. Lol

Next year, I’m gonna find the best costume I can and rock it like a super model.

Also, in a moment of blatant showing off… I went out last weekend wearing this:


And I’m pretty certain I managed to wow a couple of people who I haven’t seen since New years. What a difference 8 months can make aye.

The reaction from one person almost reduced me to tears.

Anyway, bedtime now because after 8 hours walking around west London I am exhausted.

      Thank you lovely Gio! And well done to you. It’s so hard right? I can imagine how you feel at the moment. What kind of injury?

      I love setting my mini goals. Makes the road seem less scary
