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)

  1. Bec, that is fantastic news. I am glad you are enjoying your running, it does become a little addictive, but that's much better than being addicted to the biscuit jar - I'll take that swap any day.

    Your measurements are amazing and 6 - count them, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 dress sizes OMG that is AH-MAY-ZING!!! You have done such an incredible job, congratulations.

    Can't wait to see your new photos :)
