To go with the quotes I posted yesterday I made a little video to go with it.. just to make them sort of more easier to read/watch.

I found the song on the Round 2 wrap up video which I loved...

So here you go guys, enjoy

Optimism and Motivational Quotes :D

To make up for the negative day I had yesterday I would like to share with you all today a list of motivational quotes I have collected over the time...

Please feel free to use them yourself and if you have any good ones of your own feel free to comment I would always love to expand my list :D

 I am the cute yellow one today.. far more optimistic and happy :D


Rule your mind or it will rule you.

No one can make you feel inferior without your permission.

PhotobucketNever, never, never, never give up.

It's not whether you get knocked down;
it's whether you get up.

If you want to look young and thin, hang around old fat people.

Take care of your body. It's the only place you have to live.

The difference between try and triumph is just a little umph!

The higher your energy level, the more efficient your body. The more efficient your body, the better you feel and the more you will use your talent to produce outstanding results

You don't drown by falling in the water. You drown by staying there

You may have to fight a battle more than once to win it.

You must begin to think of yourself as becoming the person you want to be

Living a healthy lifestyle will only deprive you of poor health, lethargy, and fat.


I Will! I will get through this ... I will put this behind me ... I will move forward stronger ... I Will!

No matter who you are, no matter what you do, you absolutely, positively do have the power to change.

Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.

You're never beaten until you admit it.
Unless You Puke, Faint or Die, Keep Going!

PhotobucketWhen it is dark enough, you can see the stars

PhotobucketThe only thing in this world that is instant is coffee

It is ALWAYS to early to give up

Failure will never overtake me if my determination to succeed is strong enough

PhotobucketEverything in moderation! Remember cows get fat on grass!

Do not expect to lose in a few weeks/months what took years to put on.

Success is the ability to go from failure to failure without losing your enthusiasm.

Not having the best day

So I don't know if anyone reads this, and I am not sure if I care whether anyone does or not, just felt like having a rant.

I am having a day filled with self doubt and negative thoughts.

As you will know from previous blogg entries, my "light-bulb" moment was when I stood in front of the mirror and really looked at myself and what I have become. I thought about how disgusting I looked and how I needed to change.

Well I still feel that way. I still feel disgusting but I feel like I will never be able to change. I mean I feel determined enough to lose the weight but feel like it won't change anything and that I will be permanently scarred by the way I have treated my body.
There is so much extra weight I am carrying that my body shouldn't be. I am "Stretched" beyond repair and I don't know if I can shrink back down.

This seemed to make more sense in my head and seems stupid now that I am typing it down ....
Maybe I fear changing because this is all I have ever known, this lifestyle. I don't really know what I'm saying... how is it I feel like I am failing before I have even started?

*Imitates Michelle*
Hey guys and welcome to another instalment of Foilly's blogg
OK I will stop that now...

I always start these posts with the intention to make them short and sweet but they never end up that way.. lets see how this one goes...

OK so this week has been fun... Back to normal routine at Uni. So Lee-Anne (my friend and my brothers girlfriend) decided it would be a good idea to go to ZUMBA!!!


I was absolutely TERRIFIED

Now as you all know (if you have been reading my blogg (I know it only has one g but I like it with two)) I way well over 100kg... so for me to do something as physical as Zumba had me worried.. I nearly backed out several times... But I was pushed into it so I ended up going... And guess what I LOVED IT!! If anyone is thinking of doing Zumba, do it... if someone as uncoordinated and as heavy as I can do it then so can you... It was one hell of a work out, definitely gets your heart rate up and very sweaty... The music is great and dancing is fun. Plus our instructor was awesome.
I would love to go again, but I just don't see my coordination getting better so I think I will always be the one standing up the back dancing like a loon :P

So if you thought that was impressive... just wait there's more!

My brother and Lee-anne then decided it would be a good idea for me to go swimming... the same day as Zumba.. I was fairly certain I was going to die... I tried to make excuses but luckily my brother didn't fall for it and made me come anyway.
I really do love swimming and I figured I could just float around a bit rather than doing anything huge... My brother swims a km nearly everyday... 20 laps in the 50m pool. So I knew he would make me do more than floating around.
Now like I said early I am not the most coordinated person and swimming is no different. So most of the time I am trying to swim but mostly just looks like I am a flailing fish....
Now I am not very fit so I couldn't even manage to do one full 50m lap without stopping... But overall managed to swim 7 laps, slowly over an hour. So now I have something to aim for.. To be fit enough to swim a whole 50m without stopping.

So by the time I got home that night I was so tired but felt happy at my achievements. Just hoping I can keep it up through the 12wbt program.

The pre-season tasks are going well... successfully told EVERYONE I knew that I was doing it, posted it on facebook and Twitter... My family is really supportive.. they always have been....

My kitchen make-over on the other hand will not happen. I live with my parents so I don't make the decisions about what food comes into the house, if mum wants the packet of Tim Tams and my brother wants bucket loads of Deli style chips then so it will be...
Having said that I will still be eating healthy foods because my mother will buy it for me so I am not worried about that I have been on a diet before and eaten well... Temptation is good I think... reminds me why I am doing this. Well that's what I shall tell myself anyway....

I started a folder, it has spots for my weekly meal plans, my weight measurements, my "Diary" and anything else related to the 12wbt program. I want to keep track of my program to see just how far I come. I reckon it will be great to look back on in just over 12 weeks to see how much I change.

I hope everyone is going well....

I am off to the movies today.. No popcorn or chocolate for me... :D

Until next time
