Oh wow, what a week!

Best Monday ever!! A week since I started (again) my little jaunt into clean eating.. and I have managed to drop a whopping 12 pounds!!! I mean, the bigger the person the more to lose in those early weeks but come oooon, almost a stone in 7 days! I could not be happier right now (not…

That’s it! The deed is done.. they’re not broken, but they are bruised.. my scales I mean.. I knew I was big but hey I am who I am… But when that needle went right around the scales and then some I’d be lying if I said even I wasn’t a little shocked… And scared……

And so it begins… again!

When my sister B and I decided on today to start our very cliche clean eating none diet.. it was allllllll the way back before the big fat man visited.. I remember it well, we were sat with full bellies after munching on everything in sight and it seemed like the very best of plans!…

Party / Festive season is upon us..!

I’ve hit a plato! I’m 8 days past my 2 stone goal and I am still 5lbs away! I don’t know what I’m doing wrong…I’m working out as much as I can, I’m so busy with work but I set myself a target of at least 3 workouts per week which in writing doesn’t seem…

3lbs lost but still a failure…

The wedding reception I was invited to on Saturday evening was so beautiful, and so much fun! I was happy in my size 16 dress and closly steered clear of a near miss (Almost wore the same dress as the bride! Who since the couple eloped was wearing not her wedding dress but a beautiful…

Okay so maybe…I lied!

I didn’t go to the gym last night! I must got tonight to make the fourth trip – dissapointed in myself that I now wont meet the five sessions this week. I must not allow small milestones to let my motivation dip. I’ll explain: Scroll down to my earlier posts ‘New Beginnings’ – see those…

Food Photos.

I’ve noticed alot of weightloss bloggers, fitness, diet and health bloggers include lots of images of their food in their blog. Which I actually quite like, in moderation (see, I’m learning! :)) Including photos in my thoughts doesn’t come naturally to me and I have even had to go back into a post to add…

4. Small goals mean big results

Back to my prompts for potential gain today – 2lbs lost again last week – I walked out of the gym smiling I have to admit. I have been so excited about my weigh in the last two Saturdays I’ve actually driven to my gym (where the scales I use each week are) to weigh…

1. Be Realistic!

Today is mostly about point one in my ‘prompts for potential “be realistic”  – coming back down to earth and remembering who I am, where I’ve been, how far I’ve still got to go and the hard work been and done and still to come! Last night I gave the gym a raincheck – and…

Meet my nemesis…

  35 minutes of the treadmil, 20 on crosstrainer and now for that mountain climb…ahhh this is so difficult! Can anybody suggest a good brand of glove to stop my palms from getting calluses – I thought perhaps a cycling glove? I dont want to look like an idiot in the gym – no more…

What a difference a day makes – or six!

What a weekend!!! Didn’t get to the gym until 8:45pm on Saturday night (my first visit in six days) to be told as I walk through reception “We close at 9:30” so I’m there, LITERALLY running through reception to the changing room – get into my gym clothes and run up the spiral staircase to…

56 hours and 1 working week later…

What a challange this week has been for me – I knew it was going to be tough with my week schedule including 4 days of 8am starts in cities at leats 80 miles away from where I live – four 5:30am starts and 7:30pm finished later and I’m shattered! Plus I only made it…
