Day 55: Update

It's been a while since I posted anything and that's mainly because it's been a manic week. That doesn't mean that I haven't been "on it" with the whole Proverbs 31 thing. Far from it! I'm normally terrible at taking stock of the progress that I've made as I'm always moving onto the next thing. Today... Continue Reading →

Day 47: The Little Things

About that whole "steel marshmallow" moment...yep so that didn't last very long! I've stumbled through this week and have felt far away from the Proverbs 31 goal I am aiming to achieve. I've struggled with sleep, veered away from my healthy eating plan, dragged myself through workouts, let my emotions get the better of me... Continue Reading →

U ok hon?

Throughout this process I made a promise to myself, to be honest! For a variety of reasons, I am struggling to live out the following Proverbs 31 characteristic... JOYFUL It's a real challenge at the moment. I can manage "pleasant to be around" but joyful is a bit of a push. There are plenty of things... Continue Reading →

Funeral of Expectations

I recently watched a sermon by Holly Furtick from Elevation Church and I cannot get it out of my mind. I’ve revisited it on a number of occasions, listening to it in the car, playing it while I’m washing up and watching the same little section over and over. I’m going to share what stood...

Keep calm and carry on

I need to confess that I nearly gave up today. Not on the diet, or the project but on the blog. If I'm really honest I felt a little bit silly. I already write a blog for my business and this just felt like one of my silly ideas, a self-indulgent online diary. I was... Continue Reading →

Do no harm!

It's past 3 in the morning and I can't sleep! The rest of the house is blissfully unaware that I have crept into my office and opened my laptop in the hope that processing my thoughts might help me get some rest. I was hurt today. Forgiveness has taken place, grace has been applied to... Continue Reading →


Ambitious -having or showing a strong desire and determination to succeed. Listed in the 23 characteristics of the Proverbs 31 woman is the word ambitious. As a result of spotting this word, a moment of complete insanity descended today. I rummaged through a box of old DVDs and found my nemesis...Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred. I... Continue Reading →

Have courage and be kind

I still haven't worked out where my gorgeous girl acquired her love of glitter, sparkle, and princesses. I can already predict the discussions that will be had during her teenage years about makeup, appropriate outfit choices and the fact that four hours really is too long to get ready. My parents never really had that... Continue Reading →

Musn’t Grumble

I've done two full days of the G plan diet and my body is just starting to realise exactly what's going on. The lack of caffeine and sugar is starting to kick in and I've crawled into bed at 8pm this evening. Granted I'm not asleep, but I'm not fit for much else either. The... Continue Reading →
