So I’ve never been the most active of people. If I could get by without doing any exercise it’s very likely I would! But when you have dogs you have to get out walking with them daily – but how do you make it not just a chore? My main thing is to make sure
Last week I completed my 10k race. It’s finally over, no more long runs training for it and no more weekends panicking about needing to go for a run on my day off. I want to keep running but I will definitely be sticking to shorter runs! Anyway now it’s over my thoughts have turned
So, this year is my last in my twenties. Not. Freaking. Out. Instead I will spend the last 7 months of my 20s trying to figure out the best way to celebrate my 30th. So far I have a few party ideas that all seem big enough to see in the big 3-0 in style.
I’ve been counting down completely by guess work recently in denial about how much time I have left to train for the 10k. With the Marathon on TV I thought I’d actually see how many weeks I had. After saying to people just yesterday I had 4 weeks to go, looking at the calendar today.
So it’s been a little while since my last update, but that’s only because I’ve been a busy bee. In the last couple of months I have managed to sell my house (purely by accident – didn’t actually put it on the market), buy a new house, get myself a new fella and all while
So, where did we leave off. It was this time last month and I had a hamstring injury and decided to run on a full stomach – bad idea. Plus, I’d made the stupid decision to commit to the 10k by signing up to the race officially. Now where are we… Well 4 weeks have passed,
It’s nearly lent and every year I say I’m going to give up something to help my health or my lifestyle and every year by day 1 I give up or forget. There was an embarrassing moment one year when I ate a mini egg before realising 3 hours later it contained chocolate! So this
A nice simple recipe for easy birthday party treats. It’s minimal work and maximum effect, these marble cupcakes look impressive and look liked you’ve made a big effort in the kitchen! This is one of my more simple recipes, made with a standard cake mix of: 110g unsalted butter, softened 110g caster sugar 2 large beaten
So 3 weeks ago I started Couch to 10k. This week hasn’t been great. I ran home from work on Monday and my right knee/hamstring decided to give out on me, so this week has been a serious rest week while I try to recover. But to keep me motivated I officially signed up to
I don’t think I’ve ever stuck at exercise this long before. Normally when it’s a little bit difficult I quit before I even start because, well surely nothing should be this hard. I’ve always struggled with my weight and fitness and when I joined Slimming World it ticked all my boxes because I got to
