Moving Forward
Sunday, April 10, 2011      6 comments

It amazes me that whilst I'm stuck at a plateau, my weight does not budge at all, either up or down. Just the same number every time I step on the scale. Although this is frustrating, I'm grateful not to be gaining and thankful that I weigh less... Read more
Out running again.
Sunday, March 27, 2011      4 comments

After two months of not running I finally ventured out today. My ankles have been feeling better this past week and my 10K is only weeks away now. It's make or break time. I did one of my short routes, about 2 miles, which takes me right past th... Read more
A Better Week

Although not planned that way, I have had a few days of eating little and often. emoticon This has mainly co... Read more
Weigh day woes.
Friday, February 04, 2011      9 comments

Today is Friday, so it is my day for getting weighed. It was hardly a surprise to find I had not lost any weight. I have been good with exercise, but last week was not good for eating and I skipped the scales last Friday. Just couldn't seem to g... Read more
Not my best run.
Sunday, January 23, 2011      6 comments

I had a whole load of stuff to do today, so I knew if I didn't run in the morning, I probably would not get round to it. So I got my gear on, set up the coaching app on my phone and set off. I had to stop straight away because I had no music p... Read more
Making progress

Whilst I know at my age I am never going to look like my wallpaper picture, it really inspires me each day. It motivates me to do the best I can to look the best I can. ... Read more
Feeling good
Monday, January 17, 2011      7 comments

I feel determined to do well this week. Tracking food again, drinking water and getting my exercise. The weather forecast is good for running and work shifts favour gym visits too. I wish I could bottle this feeling and bring it out when I don't... Read more
This years first run
Saturday, January 15, 2011      7 comments

Glad to report that I did my first outdoor run of the year this morning. The weather has been fairly mild these last few days and although there was a little rain, it was nothing much. It felt so good to get outside again, running on the treadmi... Read more
No January blues here.
Friday, January 14, 2011      8 comments

Looking back over the last 5 or 6 years I have noticed that I have always put weight on, not over Christmas, but in the last couple of weeks of January. I'm not really sure why that is, probably due to comfort eating during the glum month of the... Read more
Making it happen.
Saturday, January 08, 2011      6 comments

I was always a little sceptical of the phrase Make it Happen. Just how do you do that and if its so easy why isn't everyone "happening"? Today I was working until 6pm and intended to go to the gym afterwards before picking my daughter up from... Read more
Having a little chat with myself
Wednesday, January 05, 2011      9 comments

Ok this cannot go on, I must get my eating back on track. Today I have had stern words with myself and I have been to the gym. I resisted chocolate and wine and I have started a water streak which I will not give up on. Clothes are starting to f... Read more
New Year
Saturday, January 01, 2011      6 comments

I'm feeling a little overwhelmed with the whole New Year thing. I have not been eating mindfully over the holidays and have had minimum exercise. Tomorrow I will step on the scales and begin the journey again. I did plan to write some goals and ... Read more
Getting back to it.
Monday, December 06, 2010      7 comments

After a couple of weeks of convalescence following surgery, followed by some early, but severe, snow and ice, I was beginning to wonder when I was actually going to get out of the house for some "proper" exercise. I have been gingerly walking wi... Read more

I now have my appointment for my stitches to be removed, 29th Nov at 10am, I can't wait. Being at home all day is testing my resolve, I need to get back to work if only to avoid the temptation of eating extra calories. Tea and cookies every coup... Read more
Thank you, I'm feeling okay.
