Who am I? I am The original Wild Crazy Blonde Chick (WCBC), Tarryn, - aptly named over 9 years ago in a little coffee shop on Sheikh Zayed Road in Dubai by close & missed friends! I can be a bit wild (feisty at times - lol), definately crazy and yes blonde (my husband will tell you how my hair budget is testament to this).
I am by nature a happy person, I love people, I treasure relationships - especially those filled with unconditional love. I just adore my husband and best friend - I got a winner for sure! I have been blessed with, seriously, the most amazing, gorgeous, delightful little girl who is 5 years old. She has a feisty side too which I often blame on her dad but seeing as I am blogging on about truth and so forth I will admit probably comes from me. It’s the cheekiness that comes from her dad ;-)
This blog, for me, is really a part of something much bigger than noting down my progress on Michelle Bridges' 12 Week Body Transformation challenge. Rather it is a piece of a lovely life journey and probably a long chapter in a book I have been writing - I am very excited about my writing. I hope that this year will be a year full of chapters for my book and the beginnings of getting published – wooohooo that just makes me super excited!
I should mention I am a hopeless romantic, I am also the worlds biggest cry baby and will burst into tears watching anything on TV, ads, movies, reality shows, anything. If Chaeli-Jade is crying I often cry with and my husband sometimes arrives home to 2 puffy eyed, crying wrecks. Yes I know I am meant to be the parent / adult in control - we shall have to explore this problem in detail on another blog. Time is short people! Back to the point.
So, the challenge, my hubby signed me up to Michelle Bridges 12wbt as I have been working hard to get my health back. He has to be the most supportive man alive. Thumbs up babe! I have been diagnosed with Raynauds Disease which is a result (so the specialist says) of the Scleroderma which I was also diagnosed with – both Autoimmune. I am on medication for it and seeing some positive improvements. I just recently gave up work (I know, seriously it is absolutely utterly delightful – more on this to follow as its one of my favourite topics – I promise not to bore you!).
I have thrown caution to the wind and booked myself up with a class every day this week and shall make a little bloggy piece everyday to keep myself on the straight and narrow. I am drinking litres of water (no water conservation going on here), counting my calories (thank the Lord for iphone apps that help) and feeling very chuffed with myself so far (which of course could change at any moment causing madness to ensue – I suggest you check back often J)
Right now I have some calories to destroy & a little person to love and feed.
To you, my fellow body transformation peeps - Be strong, keep your wits about you for goodness sakes and when all else fails try on your skinny jeans to motivate you to step away from the cookie jar!
