Brave new world of Blogging

Hi, my name is Steph

This blog is going to be dedicated to my passions- food, fitness and the sport of figure. I hope you will follow me on my journey to my very first figure competition next year- I plan to compete at the Australian Natural Bodybuilding (ANB) Qld State Titles in September 2009.

2009 is going to be a huge year. In addition to competing, I am recommencing university studies with the goal to becoming a registered dietician. Currently, I possess a law degree and work in the investigation of child death with the State Government. While I find my work fascinating and fulfilling, I am following my dream to have a job that does not feel like work as I could talk about health and nutrition all day everyday for free, and often I do!

I commenced my weight loss journey earlier this year and have already lost over 11kg and a third of my body fat. I have found great support and friendships through the online forum at and through many of the lovely ladies who also blog. Though vastly separated by distance and varying ages and backgrounds we have come together with the common goal of better health, fitness, wellbeing and for some of us, the love of a challenge (to compete!) I hope to fill you in with more of the story (also through pictures) to date in the next post.

So until then, I will leave you with a thought for the day:

To achieve your goal, commit yourself to a course of action and cut yourself off from all other possibilities. (Tony Robbins)
