Congratulations Kylie for completing another challenge with us!
Tell us, what was the best part of this journey?
This journey is a continual one. Probably the best part of this journey is realising that it’s OK to enjoy it and it’s ok to celebrate your wins.
What was the biggest habit holding you back? And have you conquered it completely yet, or still working on it?
I have this habit of constantly comparing myself to others and then telling myself I have failed and let all of those around me down. I am slowly working on this ... I have a long way to go, but I will get there.
What did you struggle with the most on this journey, and how did you overcome it?
My biggest struggle is constantly feeling like an imposter. I still struggle with this and possibly in other parts of my life. I know I am really hard on myself so I'm learning to try and stop these thoughts. I still have a long way to go and I know that it will take time.
(Kylie has had a very productive 12 months)
What did you find the easiest?
I don’t think anything was easy. I used to run...event after event but then got injured and instead of running through it decided to fix it and focus on getting lean and strong. So to stop the cardio, make sure the weight training was focussed was a challenge. I train majority of the time on my own so making sure the FIRE was done correctly is still a challenge for me. Blocking out the noise is also a daily challenge!
Favourite motivational quote:
"If you want something you've never had, you've got to do something you've never done."
What advice would you give to someone who resonates with your story and might be struggling?
Find your tribe. When you have a tribe of like-minded people with unconditional support and no judgment it all becomes easier. Perfection is not required, but you do need to be honest with yourself. Be patient.

In bullet point form, list 3 ingredients that you feel are vital to a successful transformation?
- Having a great “Why”;
- You need a blackmail and the right people to hold you accountable; and
- A great tribe & patience!
What did you learn from this experience?
I am still learning every week. I am not a failure, although I still have a long way to go. I don't have to be perfect.

Tell us about yourself?
I have a couple of habits that I am still working on - feeling like an imposter, a failure and constantly comparing myself to others. Every day I challenge these as I have 2 amazing boys that watch and listen every day.
I run a business with my husband, my two boys are very active and love all things sport related. I love that I am teaching them habits, self-care and nurturing their amazing natures.
I am still overcoming obstacles but am determined to reach my goals in 2019. 2018 has been a learning curve and I love that we are never too old to change habits and learn.
There is no reason a 43 yr old mum can't achieve all that she wants if she surrounds herself with the right people. :)
