So just over a week ago I decided that I want/need to lose some weight. Baby making is the main reason, but to be honest I've let things go a lil too much for my liking, and there are certain clothes that are feeling a tad snug! I knew the diet would be a difficult,… Continue reading MFP for me!
Yesterday my sister gave birth to her first child. A daughter who will have all she could ever hope to have in life. Pretty much at the same time I found out my sister was in labour, I felt the all to familiar pains of that, now dreaded, time of the month. Hows that for… Continue reading Not married, No kids..
So, September is upon us, the holiday makers are all packing up, the kids are marching back to school, and the nights are rapidly drawing in! I love September. The 'ber months instantly make me want to hibernate, and, while in the summer everyone is out living their best life, in the autumn it's acceptable… Continue reading Plans for the “new year”.
So this month is whizzing by and I'm speedily running out of money and motivation. One of my aims for August was to re-connect with friends/make new ones and just get myself back into the real world. Easier said than done though, right?! I've made...some effort. I've been hanging out with the boyfriend a lot… Continue reading Socially on the mend..sort of
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!
Today I didn't exercise. Again. All week I have been meaning to start week 4 of the Couch to 5K. All week I just haven't had the time - yeah right! I haven't been completely idle however. I have taken advantage of the sunshine on my day off and walked the dog. A lot. Along… Continue reading My Life In June #2
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
I still have no idea! I'm 32 and have bounced from crap job to crap job - to not so crap, but not very fulfilling job. Even thinking back to childhood I don't remember ever having any career goals. Generally children want to become princesses or doctors or mummy's. Nope, not me. Maybe, once upon a… Continue reading When I grow up I want to be…
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..
