Big update - I got a job :)
Soooo, I haven't blogged in a while after I gave up on the Spring Bootcamp challenge, but life has been a little crazy lately, so that's why.
I didn't accept the internship I was offered last time I wrote. The hours would have been too craz... Read more
Spring Bootcamp No More
I meant to post this blog yesterday, but was way too tired after my long day, so it's a day late instead.
I went to the doctor on Friday to get a perscription for physio which I was meant to get a week ago and when she asked me how my wrist... Read more
Spring Bootcamp Day 5
Went down a little bit today, which was great. That's exactly how I want my weight to come off: slow and steady and then that way I don't have to worry about piling it on instantly as soon as I have a naughty day.
It... Read more
Spring Bootcamp Day 4
I felt a bit apprehensive this morning, but my weight stayed the same since yesterday. That wasn't particularly surprising since I haven't made the best of choices, but it's not like I blew it completely.
I wasn't hu... Read more
Spring Bootcamp Day 3
I woke up this morning feeling rather bloated and unsurprisingly the scales reflected that with a bit of weight gain. I'm not overly worried, but I hope that this doesn't become the norm again now, as I've had some serious struggles... Read more
Spring Bootcamp Day 2
The day started well with a nice loss of a pound on the scales, exactly what I'd hoped for. One more pound and I'll finally be within the "healthy" BMI range. I really can't wait, that would be my first major goal ticked off. It's really annoyin... Read more
Spring Bootcamp Day 1
After quite a bit of uhming and ahhing I decided to join this Spring Into Shape Bootcamp Challenge after all. I'm feeling a bit... errr, fragile at the moment. I've been in a relationship with the same person for such a long time I learned to de... Read more
Let's start straight away by not beating about the bush:
I've had a bad couple of days. Not bad as in unhappy or painful, but bad diet and exercise-wise. I've been persistently overeating, thanks mainly due to a gigantic and completely overwhe... Read more
Mosquitos - arrrrgh!!
Just a quick one today, as I haven't really got anything interesting to say today.
I've just come back from my run and for the first time I didn't feel all amazing and elated, but pretty p*ed off. The mosquitos (/mosquitoes??) are out - by the... Read more
Eating Out Tonight
My lovely parents, who are taking care of me while I recover after my surgery, decided to treat us all with a meal out at a really great Italian restaurant.
Eating out time is usually panic time for me. Well, it's panic before I get to the ... Read more
A word of warning: This is not a cheerful, happy, motivational blog post. It's not super depressive, but it contains a few things that I just had to get out of my system before they eat me up.
Wednesday - two days ago - I woke up fresh and ... Read more
Tomorrow - no actually, right now
I overate today. And yesterday. And I didn't do any exercise either. And no, I'm not proud of it, but it's okay.
My surgery was two days ago and even though I tried to squeeze in some high intensity housework (yes, that counts as exercise) on ... Read more
Last Push Before The Break
Today was the last time I could do halfway normal exercise for a while now. Tomorrow I'm having surgery on my wrist and I have no idea how I'll be feeling afterwards and how soon I can take up exercise again. Though of course I'm raring to go as... Read more
Just thought I'd write this up while I'm still excited and happy after completing my run. I'm currently following a programme which sees me running for a bit and then walking to recover. It's strange but a while ago I couldn't actually do the ea... Read more
Life with and after injury
I decided to write about this as my first blog post, as I've been struggling for the past few months and thought that there may be a lot of people who are going through or have been through the same problems as me.
First off, I'm a bit of a... Read more
