Aims for August.
1) Maintain swimming once a week.
Easier with the pool being open early during the school holidays and every day rather than just Mondays to the public. So can fit in around anything else I am up too.
2) Lose the 2/3lbs I gained in July. ... Read more
July in retrospect
Well, I didn't do very well.
Too many times I have eaten badly, too many times I have eaten ok but overeaten.
Not enough exercise because of the pain of my heel.
Money makes it hard to afford to swim more than once a week and I live ... Read more
Yups, only one dance, and I was terribly embarrassed but consider this is the FIRST TIME I have ever danced at a social function in my whole life I am kinda impressed with finding the confidence (or possibly the hyperness from sugar in chocolate... Read more

sighs* lacking oompf I guess.
You know that hideous pain when you stand on a sharp rock into your heel when barefoot or in thin soles? Yeah, that, ALL THE TIME.
Its actually making me feel pretty down.
I ate some pita bread at work last night, and had a slice of toas... Read more
Wonderful Charity (thrift) shop finds today!!
I love looking round charity shops, books especially. Being able to buy clothes is NEW for me, being a "normal" size now means I can actually find things in them. I got a super cute designer top the other day for £1.99!
Today I got an adora... Read more
5 Minutes on a rowing machine...
Sooo, I now have my mitts on a rowing machine, nothing fancy, but something I can do with no impact to my heels.
I had already swum today (a mile in 62mins) so this wasn't a work out really, just curious!
5 mins and my upper arms are a... Read more
Annoying and out of place week...
So Monday... I wake up, do my usual quick turn around to get to work fully planning on going swimming, arrive at work and realise I don't actually feel very well, as Mojo-Risin said... perhaps kissing boys means BOY GERMS!!!
So I didn't swi... Read more
Pain pain pain
Plantar fasciitis is so horrible.
The loss of 175lbs has done NOTHING for the levels of pain I am suffering with this problem, I have had steroid injections in both feet, my left had one injection and has thankfully remained pain free.

Pookiepup on Hardening The Fudge Up!!
I really didn't want to run today.
I managed to sleep 'in' until past 7 unlike other weekends and actually could have slept more.
I knew I had to collect shopping, get a bath and pretty myself all up for date.
My heel HURTS
Its windy.... Read more
Jogging to 5K, Week 6 completed!
I felt like a right twit when I turned back as I just passed a group of surveyors for the building work, and just had to turn back on the path... nothing to run around and turn back!
Ran 2.75 miles in 30.50, which is just under 12 minute mi... Read more

Week 6! And... yes, for the curious... my date news!
Ran a steady 12 minute mile for 2.5 miles today, even in the stupidly windy weather we are having here. I really REALLY don't like windy weather.
Then Tuesday is back to 2 miles... then Thursday... 2.75miles, need to play on the route track... Read more

They make the most ... Read more

The best laid plans...
So after the disaster at the weekend of taking 45mins to manage to drive what takes 5mins to escape the chaos of the town centre, I hadn't been shopping for work for the kids food yet this week and HAD to go today.
It rained last night and ... Read more
