I met the smuggest woman in the world the other day! To be honest she's probably a nice enough person, but the 2 minute encounter that I had with her made me want to punch her repeatedly in her smug mouth! Bit much? Not really! She's one of those middle class ladies who donates her… Continue reading Time to run!
Such a cosy day today! It's been my favourite kind of weather; grey and drizzly, and it's left the beach tourist free for the first time in weeks! So after a couple of hours running along the beach Baywatch style (him, not me!), we pretty much settled in at home snuggling on the sofa, with… Continue reading My Life In June #28
Umm...still pretty hot ☀️. Work was almost unbearable. Dog walk on the beach nearly finished me! My god I'm hungry! Ate a huge bag of crisps after a fairly healthy day so feeling a lil crappy 😤. Finally got around to using my cucumber cooling eye pads to try and ease my teary eyes. So… Continue reading My Life In June #20
Wowzers it's hot today! Like, seriously! It may even be too hot! Thank god for the air con at work! It was slightly less awful being inside a slightly less sweltering building, than outside in the open glare of the sun. It's day two of the Slim Fast diet. I had a shake for breakfast,… Continue reading My Life In June #19
So I think I know how the Slim Fast diet works. You drink the shake. You poop the shake...umm...that's it. So I drank the first shake this morning and within a couple of hours I was...unwell. But I took a pill to stop the unwellness and that seems to have eased the problem. What I… Continue reading My Life In June #18
Today I stuffed my face. It was an impromptu visit to our local Harvester this afternoon. I'm still feeling rather bloated several hours later. The food, for a vegetarian, is never anything fabulous. I always opt for the vege burger that's on offer. This season is a beetroot burger. It tasted better than it sounds.… Continue reading My Life In June #15
Last week was better. I completed week 3 of the Couch to 5K and by the final run it was feeling easier. That being said, I've just got in from a dog walk and the whole way around, at a leisurely pace, I felt tight chested and less fit than I have in months! Thinking… Continue reading Monday weigh in #2
So I've decided to weigh in on a Monday each week. The idea is to start the week off with renewed motivation. A loss is great and should give me a boost. A gain should make me want to try harder. That's the plan anyway. So today was a bad start to the week. Last… Continue reading Last Week Never Happened..
So, marathon training has gotten off to a slow trudge. While I do enjoy the running, mostly, the motivation is still lacking. I completed week 2 of the couch to 5k, it wasn't any easier than week 1. I didn't expect it to be, I've been through it all before, but being back at square… Continue reading Sunday weigh in..
So, as much of a crazy idea as it is, I entered the ballot for the 2018 London Marathon! As I stand there's no way I could do it. There's no way anyone else thinks I could do it... Which kinda makes me want to do it. Last year I completed the Couch To 5… Continue reading Training begins…
