I AM a runner!
Thursday, August 19, 2010      10 comments

I have never really felt as though I was a "proper" runner. I feel as though I'm just learning, ready to one day BE a runner. I asked my friends what they think about the people they see out running. Do they look like real runners or do they loo... Read more
Mid-month review
Sunday, August 15, 2010      3 comments

I have been disappointed this week not to see any movement on the weekly weigh in. I thought I was doing enough exercise to compensate for those indiscretions in my diet. Obviously not! I got emails from my SP teams today with the August leade... Read more

I'm feeling good about this month ...so far, early days I know! I have made a big effort with what I'm eating, got to get rid of 5 pounds this month. My daughter joined my gym today, so we can hopefully spur each other along, luckily she doesn't... Read more
Running
Monday, July 26, 2010      6 comments

I have seen a lot of people comment on SP about running and how they measure their success. Usually it is by covering a set distance within a certain time. I seem to have the problem of running, well a kind of shuffling jog really, at a pace I ... Read more
The way forward?
Thursday, July 22, 2010      7 comments

This past week has been a real struggle to keep myself in check. I have found myself slipping back into my old eating habits and although I have been aware, I haven't really cared. I have done a little bit of exercise but by no means enough. Luc... Read more

Back to routine
Sunday, June 06, 2010      5 comments

I haven't logged my food so much this past week but I have realised that I'm making good choices almost without realising now, a kind of subconscious sparking! It has been a hectic week and I haven't got in as much exercise as usual. Despite the... Read more
Evening Stroll
Monday, May 31, 2010      3 comments

Despite being at work all day and not really feeling like doing much when I got home, I managed a walk. Daughter and I took our dog for a 3 mile walk around the country park near where we live. Although not particularly warm, it was a pleasant e... Read more

No not me, silly..... my friend from work has just had her second child and I have been to visit her today. Of course the baby is delightful and I was happy to sit and cuddle her all afternoon, even got a little (just a little) broody myself! Bu... Read more
Yay my 5K race today
Sunday, May 16, 2010      9 comments

Well after hardly any training, due to injury, I completed the 5K today with a new PB time of 31.28. Still waiting for the official time but my previous was 33.50 so I know I did better than that. I found it quite difficult today as it was warm ... Read more
Shoes
Thursday, May 06, 2010      8 comments

Don't ask me how... but today I got to thinking about shoes. When I was at school I only got new shoes when my old ones either got too small or were worn out. Obviously my feet don't grow now and I buy shoes far more frequently. I don't ever wai... Read more
May will be better
Monday, May 03, 2010      4 comments

I feel like I'm always moaning on about some niggle or other. My achilles, my swollen knee , my head cold, my poor food choices etc etc. So I'm going to make sure this month is more positive and also hope to lose a few pounds in the process. I ... Read more

Cheesed Off
Friday, April 16, 2010      6 comments

Well, I have had a good week of eating carefully, I have been drinking my water each day and I have been doing a variety of exercises. I was confident of a 2 pound loss this week, maybe even 3 pounds. My clothes feel as though they fit better an... Read more
