My running week – 25th June to 1st July

Blimey I find it hard to motivate myself to run when it is so hot outside, but I find that having a training programme that I need to follow does help me to get the runs done. Last week we needed to do 2 miles, 2 miles and 4 miles and it all started well…

My running week – 18th to 24th June

Well it’s been a while since I’ve had a full week’s running to report on, but last week I achieved it … yippee. It is 11 weeks until my first half marathon and so last week I needed to start following my 12 week training plan.  The plan required me to run 3 times (2…

Fifth weigh-in – Slimming World

Another 1lb off at club yesterday, which is a loss of 9lbs in the past 5 weeks.  I’ll take that. This week is going to be more troublesome, my son comes home for a 4 day weekend this afternoon and we have so many food (and alcohol) related treats planned that I just hope to…

My running – May & June 2018

My running blogs have dwindled over the past few weeks because my running has also dwindled somewhat.  In fact, in May I only ran 3 times and in June (so far) I’ve only run twice (although both times were this week so I’m on a very small ‘roll’ at the moment!). However ….. it is…

Virtual Gastric Band Hypnosis

In a bid to supplement my weight loss, while following the Slimming World plan, I have embarked on a course of hypnotherapy using an app called ‘Virtual Gastric Band Hypnosis – Lose Weight Fast!’.  The programme is written by Sue Peckham and James Holmes who make the following claims: AS SEEN on CNN, BBC, Daily…

12 months, 12 diets – Hypnotherapy

After four successful weeks following the principles of Slimming World it is time to choose a new diet for my 12 months, 12 diets experiment.  As I have been doing so well on Slimming World, and because I have finally plucked up the courage to join my local Slimming World group, I wanted to find…

Fourth weigh-in – Slimming World

After a flying start, this Slimming World malarkey is getting a little harder.  I weighed in at club this morning and again I had only lost half a pound.  Whilst this brings my total weight loss in 4 weeks to 8lbs (a result I can only be happy about), this is less impressive if I…

Third weigh-in – Slimming World

Miracle of miracles I lost half a pound today despite my incredibly boozy Bank Holiday camping trip.  I did stick to Slimming World food (on the whole) but I drank about 60 syns a day! I hope to lose a bit more next week but am very pleased with my 7.5lbs in 3 weeks. Wish…

Second weigh-in – Slimming World

Just a quickie today as I’ve got to get ready for a Bank Holiday camping trip (which explains the rain!).  I am pleased to say that I lost another 1.5lbs at group today and earnt myself an half stone certificate to boot. Naturally I am very pleased but also a little nervous that I will…

My first group weigh-in

After I finally joined a slimming club… a week or so ago I had my first weigh in on Friday and I am pleased to say that I lost 5.5lbs – yes 5.5lbs!  This is the most weight I’ve lost in just one week in many a year and I am naturally very chuffed. So what…
