First of all I need to get a rant off my chest. I am seriously considering ending one of my friendships. Over the last couple of months it has become abundantly clear that this one friend is THE most negative person I have ever met and, to ... Read more

When we were at school my sister and I could never do homework in the same room. I need as close to complete silence as it’s possible to get, so I can focus my whole mind on the task. My sister needs her favourite TV programme running, her ipod... Read more

Today I realised I'm maintaining. I've been maintaining for a couple of months, wavering between 10 stone 13 (153) and 11 stone 2 (156). Thing is my goal weight is 10 stone (140). I don't want to be maintaining right now, I want to be burning... Read more
Things I saw on my run today

A pretty wall art that said "Just don't look down". A girl looking terribly sad, and carrying a megaphone. Someone drawing graffiti on a wall. They may not sound like much, but they set my writer's mind off like crazy. I sense a s... Read more

Or is it? I made it through my two weeks of gluten- and dairy-free eating. Mum even found me a gf df birthday cake! But then I met my trainer and it turns out it wasn't just two weeks to find out if I have any sensitivity. For no medical reas... Read more

I am so, SO embarrassed. I decided to wear my new workout trousers to my training session today. They're dark grey, very comfy and breathable. Great. But it turns out they also show sweat like you wouldn't believe. It was halfway through my... Read more

I got a surprise package delivered to my work today - a whole gluten and dairy free sponge cake! It was a present from my Mum because I didn't have a birthday cake. I shared it with everyone at work because it was enormous. We had a lovely... Read more

I figured out why they make you wait so long between blood donations. It's nothing to do with letting your body recover, that's just the cover story. It's to give you chance to forget. When that letter drops onto your doormat you just thin... Read more

I haven't been myself for a while. I can't be bothered with things that used to be my burning passion. I seem to have only 3 states of being: angry, sad and asleep. But while talking to my bf earlier today I made a throwaway comment that turne... Read more
Fitness test

Session 2 with my personal trainer was even earlier than last time, and this time it was my fitness test. Some things I did surprisingly well on, some things surprisingly poor, and some were just as I expected. Push ups - 1 full, 10 half (h... Read more

I'm the girl who's lost 20 lbs without any fad diets, pills, shakes, or detoxes. I'm the girl who started out struggling to run more than 30 seconds at a time, and now runs for 37 minutes straight. I'm the girl who cut out every single... Read more

Scrambled egg with crab meat. I really enjoyed it, but I suspect I couldn't actually taste the crab. I was so afraid of not liking the flavour I added all kinds of other things and probably drowned the crab out. But it wasn't disgusting ... Read more
