Whatever I do, it's my choice
Thursday, April 27, 2017      4 comments

I've been pondering choice. The doctor said to my ex that everything is a choice - it might be unconscious, like breathing, or conscious like what to have for breakfast but everything is a choice - a moment of thought, a spark where you ch... Read more
I have a stress problem
Wednesday, April 26, 2017      1 comments

My mum and I were talking today - my dad is away for a few days and my mum has realised just how much he lives on stress and it affects her. And it got me to thinking. I was doing really well with the running and the eating and the drinking... Read more
Getting back to it
Monday, April 24, 2017      2 comments

I decided this morning I feel better enough to try running again. I decided to start the couch to 5k programme from week one. I wasn't sure if I was well enough and I don't want to get discouraged because it's working for me. The running po... Read more

Today I decided to get moving after a week of feeling poorly. Don't get me wrong I still feel rubbish. My lungs and nose are full of gunge and I feel quite lacking in energy. But My sister said to me last week, 'don't let all your hard... Read more
This week

This week I haven't done much. I had to park C25K because of my cold - it's getting better slowly but I'm still coughing and spluttering. Work has been super busy and I've been doing overtime as well to help out. So all in all I'm a bit run down... Read more
Poorly Sick
Sunday, April 09, 2017      2 comments

I seem to have caught a bad cold and I feel pretty lousy. Tomorrow was supposed to be a running day but it's not going to be. Just getting to work on time is the main challenge! I'm achy and full of mucus. My skin is over sensitive and my t... Read more

Saturday, April 08, 2017      2 comments

Well today I finished week 4 of couch to 5 k. It has probably been the hardest run so far. I had a Men ACWY vaccine yesterday and a cracker of a headache last night. I drank some water and got on with my cooking. This morning I woke u... Read more
Batch Cooking
Friday, April 07, 2017      3 comments

I've gotten out of the habit of batch cooking recently. Last week I struggled to know what to eat because I couldn't be bothered to cook. I had a tonne of vegetables that went off in the fridge. So today I went shopping. I bought chick... Read more
C 25K Week 4 Run 2
Thursday, April 06, 2017      0 comments

I didn't want to get going this morning - I was feeling lethargic and slow after the last few day. I got out of the house for 6.45 which was late for me. I did the warm up walk and felt a little dizzy but I kept going. Somewhere in the firs... Read more
Mid Week
Wednesday, April 05, 2017      2 comments

Thankyou for all your comments on my last blog. I've been trying to just accept that work is busy and not let things stress me out too much. My customers the last two days have been much nicer which helps. Yesterday I blew my calorie count ... Read more

We've hit the horrendously busy patch at work. All the forecasting that is done to predict call volumes didn't predict the level we have got. It's not going to get any better for the next few days. Yesterday was awful. I had customers... Read more
Three Weeks in

So I've completed three weeks of the couch to 5K programme - and I can officially run for three minutes at a time and 9 minutes overall. Next week it steps up to 5 minutes of running which should be interesting. I'm really enjoying this pr... Read more

So I've just completed Week 3 run 2 of C25k. You remember how last Saturday a lady said to me ''well you are doing better than these people still in bed, good for you' and it made me happy? Last night I went to bed way too late. I had 7 of ... Read more
What I'm capable of
Saturday, March 25, 2017      2 comments

When I first started trying to lose weight about 4 or 5 years ago, I didn't think I could exercise. I was overweight, unfit and worried I would damage my knees. I did a 10 minute exercise video and I was out of breath. Over the years since... Read more
Couch to 5K - Week two run 3
Saturday, March 25, 2017      4 comments

So I finished the second week. A day late and after takeaway last night. But I finished it. And I was further round my last lap when I did which means I am travelling further. So what have I learned so far: Being 287lbs hasn't stopped ... Read more
