Long time no blog

Sorry sorry sorry to those of you whom are following my blog.  I have not posted for over a week.  I dont know where the time has gone. I have been frantically selling things on e-bay trying to raise some spending money for our holiday and so by the time I have done this I have had enough of sitting at my desk and lap top!  One day I will upgrade to an ipad and life will be so much easier.

Well you will be pleased to hear that last Thursday I weighed in and lost a total of 3lb. I was as you can imagine very very happy. I also got my 1 stone weight loss award and slimmer of the week award!!!  So my total weight loss is now 17lb.  Only 5 stone and 11lb to go (i’m getting there slowly).

Last Tuesday I had a terrible run.  I only managed to run for 10 minutes and ended up power walking the rest.  So I continued as usual and did my usual run on Thursday and yes it went fine. I managed it without stopping and ran for a full 30 mins (with a few wee stops for  monty!).  On Saturday my run was fine and Mondays run was also fine so hopefully I am back on track again now.  I am noticing that my breathing seems to be holding me back and I am wheezing so I think a trip to the doctors is required to check that I am not asthmatic or something.

I have not done Davina this week as I need to fix my DVD player which seems to have gone up the swanny.  Hopefully this will be sorted out soon as I am missing my living room workout.

So – tomorrow – weigh in again.  How do I think I will do?  Hmmmmm.  I have been sensible with my eating but I did have a Mr Whippy ice-cream on bank holiday Monday with a chocolate flake in it!  I have felt guilty ever since for consuming this and so if I have remained the same or put on weight then Mr Whippy was the cause.  Its my own fault and I will know next time not to have a Mr Whippy ice-cream.  It was very nice though.

I will be going for a run in the morning and I am looking forward to it.  It is so nice to be able to run now the weather is a bit better, especially early in he morning before it gets too warm.

I even surprised myself

I still cant quite belive I did this!  Simon stayed over last night so I set my alarm for 5.45am, got up and went for a 30 minute run whilst Simon and Olivia were still fast asleep in their beds!! Me get up early and go for a run!!!!  I MUST BE MAD!!  Ok, so the reason I did this was because it dawned on me yesterday that unless I got up and went for my run first thing, I wasnt going to be able to fit it into my day and I might as well take advantage of Simon being here.  It was also the thought of getting it over and done with as I have been dreading this run since my last one.  So how did the run go?  I really enjoyed it!  I felt relaxed, I managed to control my breathing and loved every minute of it.  Perhaps last week was just a bad week.  I am so glad that the run went well and hopefully I can get back on track and continue to enjoy my runs.

I am now shattered and ready for bed.  So thats it for today.

Bye for now x
