Running is fun!!

Friday, May 10, 2013

Wow I didn't know that I could enjoy running, but I DO!!

Yesterday, i really didn't feel like it but today that I have book for my run I felt like I really needed to.

So, I picked up my sister who asked to come along and we did 2 miles in ........ 18 mins flat.

Well i have now book Sunday for 2 mile run / walk and then a 2 mile fast walk 1/2 way and slow walk the rest of the way.

I am really enjoying it. If anyone is thinking about it then I would advise to put on your trainers and try. It doesn't matter if you can walk one lamp post or run 5 miles flat, just enjoy the freedom you can do it in a group or put on your headphones and be by yourself which I enjoying doing.

Good luck everyone :) emoticon

My First Run

Saturday, May 04, 2013

Well good morning everyone emoticon

I have some news.......... I did my first run today!!!!!!!!!! emoticon

I am so pleased with myself. I decide at the end of last week that I am ready to run. I have been thinking about it for a while and I just thought that if i am considering run then i should just do it.

So, I first joined a running club with my new job, which is every Wednesday evening after work. Then I thought.... well that is only once a week and if I am going to do do this for me then I should run for myself.

I have decided to run every other day, I got my stuff together last night before bed so that I wouldn't disturb my husband. I got up this morning at 8am put on my gear and ran!!! I ran for 1.2 miles (a distance that I walk every day) the thing that surprised me the most is that I did the time in.........23 minutes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! emoticon emoticon

As you can tell im am really pleased with myself I still can't believe that I did it by myself without anyone dragging me along.

And I have to say that I feel BRILLIANT!!!!!!!!!!! emoticon

I hope everyone has a fab weekend (bank holiday for us in the UK) and I can say that instead of just talking about it do it!! you will be surprised at what you can do

Rest and recuperation day

Sunday, April 28, 2013

Well its the end of the week and I ok.

Really, i have had bad and good times but making slow progress and trying to stop beating myself up all the time.

I have started by every morning I will look myself in the eye with the bathroom mirror and complement myself. I know it sounds silly, and I have to admit first it felt daft but it makes me feel good.

I have also read today that I need to make some me time whether its 5 mins or an hour and book it into my diary as a none negotiable appointment. At the moment I have decided my lunch time for 30 mins, but this will be changed as I am try to get up early in the mornings which is a struggle. Once i get use to it I will then spend my morning hour to myself for some me time emoticon

Well, that all for now I have to remember baby steps is the key. Good luck everyone.

No scratch that message spend one moment during the day and enjoy yourself emoticon

You are doing emoticon
Good for You- coplementing yourself- being beautiful to ourselves helps us put out confidence to the world, and confidence builds emotional strenghth.
I love getting up before everyone else- even if that means getting up at 5:30 a.m. on weekdays. Get a little time to plan the day, what needs to be taken out for dinner, and maybe even a little reading.
Continued SUCCESS!

Day two

Wednesday, April 24, 2013

Hi all,

Firstly I just want to say a huge thank you for your comments on my blog I really appreciate it and it gave me motivation this morning to walk to work rather than take the easy way and use the car emoticon

So, how did today go????? It was strange, I have at the moment lots of different emotions whizzing around my head like annoying mosquito, that you can't bat away.

I think my main worries are that when me and my husband at match to our first (of hopefully three) adoptive child will they like me, will I like them, what do i do on the first meeting????

BUT! Blogging and concentrating on my new lifestyle (not diet) is helping as a distracting.

Well that's me for now. whew! that is a lot in my head I am surprised my head doesn't explode!

Blog soon H

PS, I just want to apologies for the ranting it is helping thou emoticon
