What about me you ask? What has been going on in my life? Well, sit back, relax and let me tell you a story. The last year of my life has been such a journey. Sadly it’s not really been one of those inspirational journeys where everyone ends up enlightened and better people as the […]

Milestones and kilometers.
Milestones and kilometers.

Today I woke up before my family and got dressed in my running gear that I had laid out the night before. I got a lift with my running buddy to the event and then lined up with thousands of other runners and prepared myself to run 10kms. It was an awesome run, maybe a […]

#OperationMOVE
#OperationMOVE

When my bloggy friend Kate over at Kate Says Stuff blogged about her plans for #OperationMOVE I was excited, eager and committed. Kate’s intentions were to motivate herself, and us, to get moving during the months of Spring with the initial commitment of deciding how many minutes were were going to MOVE during September. This was […]

Gourmet Garden – Blog off/cook off – recipe choice

The timetable has been announced for the Gourmet Garden Blog Off/Cook Off second round. The Melbourne bloggers kick it off this weekend and I will be eagerly following their adventures on twitter and their blogs. I still have a few weeks to stew over my ideas for my own cook off. I debated whether I […]

Ding, ding, round II
Ding, ding, round II

Amazingly I managed to make it through to the next round of the Gourmet Garden Blog off/Cook off! What this means is that on Sunday 24th June I get to cook off against another blogger, live at the Sydney Good Food and Wine Show on “The Chopping Block” stand and my recipe and food will be judged […]

Melbourne – redacted.
Melbourne - redacted.

I remember making the same mistake last year after the Aussie Bloggers Conference, I started reading everyone’s incredible recap posts and suddenly developed a terrible case of doubting myself. It didn’t help that I had been having some serious concerns about the state of my blog and I wasn’t entirely sure that I really wanted […]

New Year Questions – Answered, again!
New Year Questions - Answered, again!

I am typing this on our new iPad while sitting in the shade of our tent on our camping holiday! Technology and free wi-fi, amazing! I have lots of lovely photographs to share and stories to tell when we get back next week, in the meantime I bring you the 2011 edition of the marvellous […]

Not so good.
Not so good.

I haven’t been doing so well this last week. I don’t know quite what happened, I think it’s a combination of a lot of things. Time of year, weather, fatigue. Hormones. Whatever it was that triggered it is kind of irrelevant, the end result is the same. I feel bad. I feel tired, lethargic, self-sabotaging. […]

Can’t post, won’t post.

I cant post tonight because I was out late night shopping and eating delicious Thai food with two special friends and I ran out of time! I love it when my real life gets in the way of my online life, instead of the other way around!

Craftyness, of the marmalade variety.
Craftyness, of the marmalade variety.

This Winter I made another few batches of my marvellous orange marmalade and I took lots of photographs of the finished product because I was so proud! We totally raided the next door tree and Ron managed to collect over 100 oranges over the period of two weeks when the house was vacated by the […]

A race well run.
A race well run.

I did it! 10kms done and dusted. All in all it was a good race, bloody hot and long and I didn’t manage to run the whole way, oh, and my time, well it was slow, 1hr15m actually which is an average pace of more than 7 minutes a km. But I am proud. Proud, achey and […]

Running away.

No, no, I am not planning on escaping my reality. Yes I am sad that our lovely holiday with my family is over but the only running I am going to be doing now is on Sunday. 10km to be exact. You might remember recently when I posted my three part series on weightloss, fitness […]

Part three – Running, my obsession
Part three - Running, my obsession

Halfway through this year my bootcamp instructor convinced me to register for a 9km run across the harbour bridge in September. I decided not to do the third bootcamp because my Mum was coming over for a two week visit and money was a bit tight. Ron also wanted a bit more freedom during the […]

Part Two – fitness
Part Two - fitness

In Part two of my three part series on Weightloss, Bootcamp and Running I am going to talk about how I finally got my flabby bottom to a bootcamp after promising myself I would in January 2010. After a year of weekend boxing and mindful eating my weight was 87kgs, a 6.3kg loss in a […]

Part One – weight loss
Part One - weight loss

My journey to weight loss and fitness has been a long one with many twists in the road. In fact for the majority of my adult life I have had a love/hate relationship with diets, food, fitness and my body. I think that I might even have a diagnosable case of body dysmorphia because despite […]

Happy 5th Birthday to my BLOG!

I wish I had something amazing planned for my blog’s 5th birthday. A huge giveaway, an amazing treasure hunt through my archives, an announcement about my book deal! But sadly I don’t really have much to say at all…. it kind of crept up on me! Five years ago Amy was 3 months old and […]

Nothing to see here…..
Nothing to see here.....

Move along, move along…. Sorry, I have just been so busy, which is great, lots of photography jobs, lots of social events with friends, lots of footy, of all codes. Lots of cuddles with small children and coughs and even smaller children and bronchitis. Lots of aching muscles from my last week at bootcamp, lots […]

Crossing the finish line!

VICTORY IS MINE! Can you see me? I cross from the right of the screen with my arms waving madly above my head, wearing pink singlet top and white visor… you can’t miss me! I have watched this over and over and over, laughing every time!

Running.
Running.

Yesterday I realised a dream I have held for a long time. Along with 35,000 other runners I was part of a Sydney running festival across the Harbour Bridge and round the streets of this beautiful city! My bootcamp instructor registered a team for the 9km run and two of my very close friends decided […]

10 years on.
10 years on.

Its hard not to think about the anniversary of September 11. Right now the news is full of recognised threats against New York and tragic reminders of how that day played out ten years ago. We all have our memories of how the terrorists attacks on the World Trade Center changed our worlds. My memories […]

EEK!

Would you, could you, eat a donut burger?

A week or so ago I left a comment on one of my must-read blogs A Cajun Down Under. I love Christy’s blog and have followed her recent adventures back home to Baton Rouge, Louisiana and salivated over her diary of some of the food she enjoyed, aptly titled Cajun P0rn! My comment was a […]

Some housekeeping and a bucket list.

See that Photograph over there on the right in my sidebar? =============> I finally managed to make a pretty badge for my photography business Sarah White Images which has been on my to-do list for ages. I realised this weekend that there is no mention or link to my business on my personal blog apart from down […]

Through a lens.
Through a lens.

In 1994 I was 17 years old, I had just finished high school and was on my way to study a Bachelor of Journalism in a small university town in South Africa. I was young, so very young and so very idealistic. I had great belief that I was going to change the world and […]
