Ridgeway walks (with a hangover)!

Since I last posted, we’ve had some busy weekends tackling some of the 87 miles of the Ridgeway. Walking the Ridgeway – the hangover walk On Saturday 10th we had some friends over for the evening and I had a few drinks, well I say a few drinks – I actually drank two bottles of…

90s throwback!

It all started with a chat with my hubby whilst on a gorgeous country walk around a local National Trust property. I was telling him about my love for Step Aerobics in the 90s and how it was the only aerobics class I could manage because of my lack of coordination and two left feet….

12 diets, 12 (ish) months – an update

I was planning on writing a blog today about My Fitness Pal and their approach to weight loss when I noticed that I started my Twelve months twelve different diets! challenge almost a year ago today on the 25th September, 2017 with the Weight Watchers diet. When I started I was full of hope and optimism…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…
