Who? ME!!!!

1. Thankyou TRI714 for choosing me to receive this Stylish Blogger Award. I feel so very special and hope that what I am about to divulge will not make you regret having chosen me..... I shall try to keep it clean and somewhat interesting.

2. Now I have to share 7 things about myself: Hard considering I already tell you guys everything, so now I have to dig deeper into the deepest, darkest recesses of my mind.
  • I am slighlty - Ok ALOT Obsessive Compulsive. Mind you I have relaxed from being COMPLETELY driven by cleaning. I mean really I don't have the time now, but it got as bad as wiping down my kitchen bench quite a few times in the hour some years ago. Didn't have much control of who I was back then and that was my control.
  • If I was to meet anyone in this whole wide world it would be a tie between Chrissie Wellington and Mirinda Carfrae as I think both women are absolute legends. My dream, goal, aspiration and who I dream about being like in this Triathlon world are these two women. I would even go so far as to say I would be even happy being 1/3 like them.
  • Things I hate about myself - my long GO-GO gadget neck and being flat chested. It's no secret - take a look at the photos - I have more pectoral muscle than most dudes. Would I change this - NO. I used to think about changing it, but this is what makes me ME.
  • My most favourite flavour in the whole wide world is Salt n Vinegar. Whether that be in chips, rice crackers, salad - I will lick it all off before actually eating the chip. The more condiment the better. When I was a kid my oldest brother and I used to eat a bowl of finely diced capsicum which had been drenched in it. Our lips would go white as the amount of Salt n Vinegar would burn our lips.
  • My diary is my life. I write everything in it to keep me organised. Without it I feel lost.
  • I totally look forward to doing some form of training everyday and even though I may complain, whinge and whine - after it is all said I done - I am totally stoked.
  • My biggest accomplishments in my life has to be without a doubt finding my husband and becoming a Mum. Even though at times I am pulling my hair out (as I type) - everytime I look at my 3 children I see 3 fantastic humans who really are good hearted individuals.
3. Pay it forward to 15 blogger friends: I hereby Christen thee a "Stylish Blogger".

My job is done. Thankyou for reading - hope you found it slightly insightful. I definately enjoyed trying to find things to disclose.


  1. Aww...thank you Barbie!
    (I'm with you on the flat chested thing.....but wouldn't trade it for anything else;))

    So glad I have gotten to know you...and so you are one of my inspirations!!!!!!
    (I got a new bike for my bday...I now have no excuse...between what you sent me, your inspirational posts, and that new bike;))

  2. Wow :)... thank you B! I am touched. AND I've loved finding out a few more of your quirks ;) {we all have them!}.

  3. Great to find out a bit more about the person behind the blog, although we have met already. Must admit, salt & vinegar is my fav too, always has been.
    Thanks so much for considering me a friend and for mentioning me in your blog, I'm truly honored :-)

  4. Haha—right! How do you share something new about yourself when you are CONSTANTLY sharing every detail about your life?!

    A triathlete obsessive compulsive? You don't say?!

    You rock! Did I mention the new pic makes you look completely bad-ass?

  5. Thanks for tagging me! And, I LOVE salt and vinegar anything!

  6. Dear flat chested, GO-GO gadget necked women, please pass the chips !!
    I am not a chip person- BUT- WHEN I do eat chips, its only Salt & Vinagar, or original Lays with french oinion soup mix/sour creme dip.

  7. I love your blog! And it gives me great motivation as a soon-to-be mom! :) See ya around on Daily Mile!


I am so happy you have stopped by. You have made my day.

Your hard work will be rewarded.
