"My sister, Jodi and I were DediKate with a Mate partners this year, as well as last year. It’s hard to believe that this time last year, we still had our gorgeous Mum – she passed away in May.
She took a great interest in how each of us was going in the challenge last year, and often the first question she would ask us when she would ring up for a chat was “who was winning this week?”
Jodi and I are both massively competitive (we definitely got that from Mum!) and so this little challenge bound us all together. Little did we know what was to come...
This year, the challenge was dedicated to Mum. She was our motivation, but no phone calls from her this time to check on progress, so we had to call and message each other. It made us check in, not only on how the challenge was going, but on each other – we only have each other now.
Jodi and I have battled moving house, crazy work schedules, sickness, and everything else that life throws at you, but we have got to the end, with both of us feeling fit for Christmas (our goal).
So, here is to Mum, Diane – without you, we wouldn’t be half of who we are today.
