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…

Running and weight loss update

I’ve not written a blog since the 4th of July but, for once, this isn’t because I’ve been off plan but because I’ve been pretty busy and for the past two weeks I’ve been on my hols. Running I am still sticking to my half marathon training plan and am now up to 7 miles,…

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 – 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…

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…
