Every day I eat clean this week, I'm going to buy myself a new song on itunes. Just a small reward for a small goal that will help me take more baby steps in the right direction.... Read more

Old tactics
Thursday, February 20, 2014      10 comments

At the moment it feels like food is the only area of my life over which I have any control whatsoever. In that case, some people restrict their calories to within a 5-calorie range, or spend hours calculating how much exercise they have to do to... Read more
What happened?? Oh yeah, sleep.
Wednesday, February 19, 2014      7 comments

It is remarkable what a difference a bit of sleep can make. I was unpacking my lunch today and it just kept on coming - apple, pear, babybel, snap peas, hummus. 'why do I have so much left?' I thought, 'normally I'm down to half a portion of ... Read more
Board

So here's my inspiration board. Not a major work of art or anything, but I'm still proud of it. There are some quotes that jumped out at me in fitness magazines: ... Read more
Guilty
Friday, February 07, 2014      5 comments

I just did a massive (for me) grocery shop because I got a voucher for £15 off when you spend £60 or more, and now I can't stop feeling guilty. That voice in my head is going "SIXTY POUNDS!?!? That's more than TWICE your MAXIMUM weekly budget!",... Read more
Motivation

Wow, everything is happening this Summer. My bestie best friend is visiting from China, and I won't have seen him for almost two years at that point. It will be ten years since I left high school and our group of friends (as was) is having ... Read more
Sleeeeep

So I jolted awake at exactly 1 o'clock this morning, and realised I could smell smoke. After running round the flat and touching everything that could possibly be on fire (and a few things that really couldn't) to make sure they were cold, I got... Read more
Oh, salsa
Sunday, January 19, 2014      7 comments

When I got home from salsa tonight, my Fitbit reckoned I had 952 calories to eat. It's now 10pm (past my bedtime, so this will be brief) and I still have 347 to go. I just can't eat that much in one go! This is all because I went to salsa ... Read more
Salsa good. Purse bad.
Wednesday, January 15, 2014      9 comments

I doubled today's step count in one hour of salsa. One of the multitudinous reasons I love salsa dancing so much. However, today I ended the class absolutely STARVING. The plan was to go to Subway and grab one of their low fat options befo... Read more

Run...and also alphabetise
Saturday, January 11, 2014      7 comments

So I went running instead of resting. My foot felt so much better when I woke up that I momentarily entertained the thought that it might have got better overnight. Wishful thinking, of course. I am in such a funny mood today. When the peo... Read more
Run/rest
Friday, January 10, 2014      4 comments

Oof my foot hurts today! Why the heck does plantar fasciitis take so long to naff off?? So now there's a big debate in my head: do I run tomorrow or do I rest? I would go to the gym, so it wouldn't be too hard on my foot. But it has... Read more
Fuel
Tuesday, January 07, 2014      5 comments

Dear mind, remember that one time you got really angry and made me just go for a run without eating anything? Remember how you gloated about anger being such an efficient fuel, saying maybe if I got angry instead of stuffing my face I would... Read more
New me
Monday, January 06, 2014      10 comments

Don't worry, this is not yet another "new year, new me!" thing. No, today I actually discovered that the new me appeared ages ago. Last year was so bad it knocked me every which way until I didn't know who I was any more. Since then, everyt... Read more
