I finally joined a slimming club…

I have been putting it off and putting it off in the hope that I would be able to sort myself out and lose weight without the humiliation (in my eyes at least) and the hassle of joining a slimming club.  However, when I received a WhatsApp from my friend, telling me she has lost…

Eating my way around beautiful Cornwall!

I have been quiet of late because I have been on holiday to the lovely county of Cornwall in the South West of England.  We stayed in a little cottage in a village just outside the seaside resort of Newquay and spent our days sightseeing and walking the beautiful coastal paths. I particularly loved the…

My running week – 23rd April to 29th April

This week I achieved that rarest of things for me – three runs in one week! Now that I have reduced my mileage to just three miles I am finding things much more manageable, my legs don’t ache after the runs and I don’t have the running munchies afterwards.  I have also started running with…

Being an online member – Slimming World

Well I lost another half a pound this week and once again the Slimming World online system was cock-a-hoop about this …. The difference this week is I am also quite pleased as I drank far too much over the Easter Break … oops. When I started Slimming World I chose an online membership because…

My running week – 26th March to 1st April

The best laid schemes of mice and men ….. I signed off my last running blog with hopes of running 3 times last week, needless to say this didn’t happen.  The weather, the Easter Bank Holiday and my own laziness conspired against me and I only actually managed 1 of my planned runs.  Oops.  However,…

First impressions – Slimming World

I weighed in on Monday after a week of following the Slimming World plan, well I say ‘a week of following’, I did have a spectacular day off on Thursday when I passed my driving test (yippee again) with a greasy ole vegan kebab, chips and a bottle of vino, oh and on Sunday when…

My running week – 19th to 25th March

After my decision to withdraw from Brighton Marathon I’ve had a really nice, pressure free, running week. I’ve concentrated on shorter distances and after one run of just 2.65 miles my legs wanted more when I got home, I guess as a result of the long runs I have been doing, this is definitely a…

There is no such thing as failure – only feedback ….

It is with a heavy heart that I have to report that I have decided to defer my Brighton Marathon entry.  The reason behind this decision is simple enough – I’m just not physically ready for such a ‘marathon’ challenge at the moment. I was going great guns (well as great as these guns of…

Final weigh in – 16:8 diet

Today was my final weigh in on the 16:8 diet and I’ve only lost a pound and a half. Grumpf! I am a bit disappointed by this because the 16:8 or 8 Hour Diet really is the easiest diet I’ve tried so far and so it would have been GREAT if it was the magic…
