I’m Feeling All Sorts Of Famous (A Positive Post, Promise)

I’m feeling swamped with negativity lately, and yet, there are good things happening all around me, and happening to me. Can’t be bogged down by past mistakes, and last weekend IS the past, no? So let’s reflect on some positives.

A cool story to start this post, so my mom went to a "Women In Business" class-thing downtown earlier this week. It’s about a solid hour away from my parents house. Anyways, so she is sitting next to this lady who she overhears mention ‘carbs’. On the break my mom asked this lady if she was counting her carbs or following some sort of diet. The woman explained to her the Dukan Diet and my mom wrote out ‘Dukan Dietress’ on the ladies notepad telling her to check out my blog.

Well wouldn’t you believe it the woman explained that she had already visited and read my posts and was super impressed that my mom was well, my mom. I feel so famous! :D How exciting!

Otherwise the Dukan Diet has finally contacted me in terms of my Ambassadorship with them. I need to re-submit my success story so they can put in on the site. Feels like FOREVER since I was accepted.

Apparently there are a number of Canadian media opportunities available now so I’ll be re-submitting my story with a few tweaks.

I’ll let you know how that works out, and of course, once my testimonial makes it to the Dukan website!
I will also be attending my first bodybuilding show on Saturday. I will finally get to see in person what I have signed myself up for. I’ll post pictures. I’m pretty pumped for my extremely long day, really excited to support those ladies and watch them pose, take notes, etc. This is the only competition I will be watching before mine so I really need to focus.

Also, my Personal Trainer is one of the judges! So I will be discussing everything I see with him after the show, that’s also pretty exciting. I don’t think I will be able to sleep Friday. Too pumped!

I have been doing really well with my work outs since the weekend of terror. Been consistently going, upped all my weights. I hope to post a chart of my progress here so you guys can see, it’s pretty cool. I started off almost 3 weeks ago doing leg presses 3 sets of 10 reps at 80 lbs and now I’m up to 160 lbs! Just an example of my progress, it’s not so impressive for some of my weaker body parts lol.

So that’s that. A little positive energy in the blog-universe. Hope everyone is having a great day, good things are coming my way I can feel it! Be happy and positive today. If I can spring back from my absolutely terrible experience last weekend you can do anything!



  1. Love the attitude. Can't wait to hear about the show on Saturday...

  2. yay! getting some feedback for the hours you spend blogging. yes you are famous, Im in Cape Town and follow you and a few other Dukaning ladies. You dont realise your reach via this medium, you are GLOBAL! you and I couldnt be further apart and I enjoy your posts and they are a huge inspiration for me to keep at it. I have not been as good as you through my journey and realise that I need to work on my will power. Dont be so hard on yourself, you and Prawn have already achieved AMAZING results that Im sure you would have never thought possible a year ago. You are only human and you are allowed to faulter once in a while.
    keep your posts coming and keep us updated on the bodybuilding.

  3. Yeah and you and your dukan blog buddies are famous in parts of the world that you cannot imagine. I am from Turkey and i read nearly all your posts. Your results are impressing. I am also following your friends with good results same as you such as sonia, flamidwyfe, etc... But this blog is the most non personal and professional one among others, bec you also write about general things to consider, milestones, faq about DD...
    And of course, you all have the advantage of writing in English, as everybody knows english, i am sure you have followers in places you can t think of.
    Good luck on your body building pursuit.
