Laingholm, West Auckland

About Laingholm:

Laingholm is a small village in the Waitākere Ranges of West Auckland.

The name derives from George and John Laing, who farmed the area from 1854 onwards until it was subdivided.

Located on the shores of Manukau Harbour, and within the Waitākere Ranges, Laingholm provides one of the few opportunities left in the Auckland region to live in a natural setting. Many of the houses are surrounded by a native forest.

Originally a vacation destination, holiday homes were constructed in the early part of the century after the original farmland was sold in lots. With road upgrades, increased car ownership and the growth of Auckland, Laingholm is now within driving distance of the Auckland centre.

At the 2018 New Zealand census, Laingholm had a population of 2,385 with 843 households.

Goal setting!!!

Throw back to 2015 - I was pretty down after having my gorgeous twin babies, post natal depression kicked my ass. I struggled to get my workouts in at all - the best I could do was a walk with the babies in the buggy, which was the highlight of my day.
.
I remember clock watching not only for the crazy routine that was required for a toddler and 2 x babies, but for a reasonable time to pour myself a wine! I felt so trapped (which is a huge symptom of post natal depression) but trying to get 2 babies and a toddler ready, out the door and strapped into the car was sometimes not worth the 2 hour hassle. .
Fast forward 3 years later and I was ready to focus more on myself finally, I was working out at the gym but not feeling motivated enough to drop the alcohol and yummy food that goes with it! To go on stage and prance around in a bikini you really want to look your best .. So that was my goal.
.
I envisioned it, I wrote it down, I wrote down the negatives of staying the same and positives of changing. What did I see possible? What could help me get there? Could I stick to a strict diet and train that much? Hell yes I could!
I wrote down how that end goal could make me feel. Competing in a NZIFBB figure competition. .
Empowered, proud, strong, motivated, role model, healthy!
.
And now I apply this to every goal, bad habit, business/personal/relationships - how do I want to see myself, negatives of staying the same, positives of changing, what do I see changing and steps to get there! And you can too! 👊🏽 👊🏽 .
And today’s goal - get through this lock down without drinking too much alcoholic and eating the yummy food that goes with it 😂🤪

An homage to my first island home... Born and raised in West Auckland - New Zealand #westie
My heart aches. Kiwi summer: Bush walks, black sand, mint choc chip ice cream and infinite summer days when 1 day feels like 2.
