The toughest thing I have ever done
Today I completed a 20 mile race, which did involve a significant amount of walking, but I made it! I am so pleased with myself. I can't believe I did it.
Every single part of my body hurts, my head is pounding and my lungs are burning. I ... Read more
Fit and Fat?
Ok, so I am a little frustrated. I gained 2 pounds this week, as no, its not muscle-the vital measurements are also increasing-hips, waist, arms, etc. The only measurement that decreased was my calves and that was only 5mm, so I could put that d... Read more
LAst night, I was exhausted. i didn't run because I was so so tired. And I am this morning too. I dont know what is wrong with me at the moment. I also convinced myself that Tuesday is my normal running day, so I will run tonight instead. I now ... Read more
Ok, it's serious now. In 13 days I have to run 20 miles. I ran 10 miles on Saturday, but it left me pretty exhasuted for the rest of the day. I aim to try and run at least the same distance, preferably more, this evening. However, this is likely... Read more
It is getting very close to my 20 mile race-4 weeks away, which leaves me with 3 weeks of training time. The aim is therefore to get as fit as humanly possible within the next 3 weeks. This will involve daily exercise, including running, swimmin... Read more
Things are certainly not going especially well at the moment. I am eating far too much of everything. Not necessarily junk, but just everything. I have also been a bit sluggish and not very active recently and that certainly needs to change. Esp... Read more
Today, I made cupcakes with my boyfriend. And they were amazing. So amazing, that I ate 4 of them!!!! Which adds up to over 1100 calories. Oops.
I did go for a short, quick run this morning, with the aim of trying to increase my speed on my... Read more
So, last week was pretty awful (I forgot just how awful until I read that last blog post)
However, I have been slightly better this week. Still some food slip-ups, but nowhere near as bad as last week. I have also been trying to get back up... Read more
One of those weeks
It's just been a thoroughly bad week-I have eaten soooo much utter rubbish. Including 6 profiteroles topped with Baileys double cream last night, after garlic bread and pizza!!! And until this morning, I had done no work. I think there are sever... Read more
There is always an excuse, isnt there. Today was my leaving lunch at work and I had cheesy chips and a brie panini. I probably only needed one of those! And last night I went to my friend's house, where she served up an entire pizza and 10 mini ... Read more
yesterday was better-1553 calories. Although that did involve swapping the healthy apple I had packed for a chocolate bar! I also walked 40 minutes as part of necessity to get to work.
Today the ground is less icy-infact it is mostly gone.... Read more
The weekend was a little better than Friday. But only a little. I expect no losses this week and possibly a gain. Which is a shame because I had a fantastic start to the week. The problem is a lack of planning and having my boyfriend around all ... Read more
Oh holy crap. I have eaten 6 pieces of cake today. That is, infact, an entire cake. I have no more to say on the matter!... Read more
Monday morning, back to work, very tired and with 3 punctures tyres on my car-Yesterday morning was not fun! I ended up having to take the train to work, which also involves a 20minute walk at one end and a 40 minute walk at the other. So that ... Read more
Welcome to the New Year!
Since the new year I have been very good. Major blow out with pizza on new years eve (which seemed to give me an additional few pounds overnight), but since then I have been pretty good. I even went for a walk on new years day for about 90 minut... Read more
