Starting Over

So proud of my husband for finally documenting his journey. Check out his page and follow him for more interesting reads!

Sculpting rock

I have a funny last name. Not funny in the traditional “ha ha”, side-splitting, laugh-your-arse-off way, but funny in the mean-people-can-make-a-thousand-dirty-variations-of-it way. So, in a way, my last name is a burden. Which is ironic, because my last name happens to be “Rock”.

We all know about rocks. They’re giant, heavy clumps of minerals that people sometimes keep as pets.

Clearly this is reflective of a healthy human mind

They’re often shapeless, formless and uninteresting. But, with the right tools and enough patience, a rock can be sculpted into a masterpiece. Marble, for instance, is used to create beautiful, aesthetically pleasing sculptures that amaze and astound to this day. I promise that this will all become relevant soon, but first some back story.

For a long time I’ve been struggling with my physical weight. I have this image in my head of what I want to look like, but the…

Yes, I am alive. (Part one)

im-backHello Blogging world!

Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and all that jazz! It has been a while not so? It honestly feels like forever since I posted on here.

So anyway, what have I been up to you’re probably wondering?

There are several things that I have been up to for this year so far, I am actually in my final year of my degree which is major and a bit stressful. Funny thing is that I still have about 5 years until I achieve everything I want too academically (Yay me). I am also the youth president/Leader at my church so that in itself is challenging especially when you are working with about TWENTY (20) young people ranging from age 13-21. This is my third consecutive year as the youth president and although it is challenging it is VERY rewarding and I can see God working in the church and in the lives of the young people. 🙂

I also started going to the gym regularly, counting my macros, doing Intermittent Fasting which by the way is AWESOME, I won’t lie and tell you that it isn’t hard but, I would tell you that it is doable and very beneficial. All in all I am extremely happy that I am back in the gym and of course I must make mention to my husband/trainer/mentor/everything in one for his unconditional love and support through everything. Big up babes. ❤

So, in a nutshell that’s what I’ve been up too.

Truth be told, part of my “New Year Resolutions” was to start blogging again. Lol, we saw how that turned out. But, hey! The year isn’t finished yet so can we say that I kept my end of the deal? 😛

Anyway so, in light of my return and now you know that I am indeed alive and well, I decided to celebrate by doing some light baking today (and also, because I really wanted to bake and eat all the yumminess 😛 )  which of course would be in posted in another blog post.

So stay tuned, it will definitely be up by the end of the night.

Steph 🙂 ❤

 

A new beginning…

Hey all!

My name is Stephanie, I am a wife, Lover of God and generally a person that loves good, clean fun. This is my first attempt at Blogging.

I decided to start Blogging because, My husband and I are Currently trying out the If It Fits Your Macros (IIFYM) diet plan with Intermittent fasting, as well as the Reverse Pyramid Training programme. I really wanted to do share what we’ve been doing and the progress we’ve made. Most importantly, the recipes! 

A lot of our friends and family see our food and tell us “Is that really healthy?” Lol. My wish is to encourage others and help them see that dieting can be fun! 

Starting from next week, I’ll be sharing the recipes we use (with pictures of course) 

I look forward to sharing with you and appreciate any questions and feedback 🙂
