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…

“Fast” and Loose

Back in my post 12 months, 12 diets – AWOL I realised that the only diets that have really worked for me were those I found in Self Help books (in particular Karina Melvin’s Artful Eating) and Intermittent Fasting (in particular 5:2 fasting).  I tried these diets in December and January and I very much credit…

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…

12 months, 12 diets – AWOL

Wow – it’s been over a month since my last blog post – 12 months, 12 diets – My Fitness Pal – where I explained that I had a “very busy 3 weeks coming up” and that I was going to try counting calories as the next diet in my Twelve months twelve different diets! challenge….

Hypnotherapy – the post-mortem

I have not really written about my experiences and results whilst using hypnotherapy for weight loss and the reason for this is I didn’t really see any results.  I lost 1.5lbs whilst using the Virtual Gastric Band app which is pretty unimpressive. It wasn’t that I didn’t like the app, it was inexpensive and, as…

Holiday weigh-in

So far on my Slimming World ‘journey’ I’ve not gained at group, a fact that I am rather proud of as I tend to struggle with consistency.  However, after a two week holiday, where I was mindful of what I ate but certainly wasn’t counting syns, I knew that there was a chance that this…

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…
