Socially on the mend..sort of 

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 

Time to run! 

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! 

My Life In June #2

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

Monday weigh in #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

When I grow up I want to be…

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…

Last Week Never Happened..

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..

Sunday weigh in..

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..

Training begins…

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…

Life…

So, my life is fine...in many ways. I have a boyfriend, a job, a roof over my head, but more and more I find myself jealous of what other people have. For example, kids - I want a family some time soon, but my boyfriend isn't in a hurry. We're both in our early thirties… Continue reading Life…
