On the way to a better me

Running, running, running.

Well the title says it all really, I've been running. Restarted the C25K program and loving it. It's not easy, it's a challenge, but it's really great. I find at times when I normally would pike out on doing exercise I just get on with it and do it which I great, seeing as I went from being a sporty person to being a sloth. I've just completed week 2 and although hard I do not want to vomit and die like I did when I first started, so that's evidence of progress.

I had a loss in yesterday's weigh in 800g, not a lot but a loss is a loss and I'll take it :D Have nearly lost that nasty 5kgs that crept back on, and then hopefully I'll keep going down and down. I feel I've REALLY got my mojo back. I'm tracking, I'm not nibbling on things I shouldn't, I keep my naughty food days to the weekend and then am really good for the rest of the week. I'm still terrible with water, better than I used to be, but still terrible (I know, I know) but doing the running is forcing me to drink more which I good :D

I did my measurements again and since last month I have lost another 4cms off my waist, 6cms off my hips, 3cms off my bust, 1cm off my arms and 1cm off my thighs. So since I started I've lost in total 24cms off my waist, 26cms off my hips, 22.5cms off my bust, 4cms off arms, 6cms off thighs and 6 dress sizes. That's a solid effort I reckon in 1 year and almost 2 months. I probably could have been much more dedicated etc but sometimes it just doesn't work out that way, especially when you've got 3 small kids :D But as I always say, I'm determined to get to my goal and I KNOW that I will :D

Will post some photos next time I blog, which will hopefully be next Friday after I weigh in (fingers crossed for a big one :D)

Sorry Folks......

I left it a long time again, sorry guys. Have been through some personal things that I won't go into, but things are going well and I'm back. Needless to say I got off track a little and put on nearly 5kgs in 2 weeks, but at my last weigh in I'd lost 2.6kgs of that and hope to be back on track over the next couple of weeks and lose the rest which will put me down into the 80s, the 80s people.

In other news we got our treadmill and I have used it, twice infact. I started doing the C25K and then discovered you should actually read intructions on such things so as not to injure and almost cripple yourself. So i've put that on hold and will probably start again tomorrow, I should have started yesterday, it feels odd to not start something on a Monday, I know, I know, I'm odd.

So that's where I'm standing at the moment, will see how I go this week, I'll try to keep up with my blog more often, at least once a week, I know I neglect it and you all, I'll try not to in future :D
