No. Push!

I just completed my first serious interval run (1 min at 9.5 kph, 3 mins at my usual 7.5 kph. Repeat) and I have to say I am proud of myself. The Excuser was strangely silent; instead I had to deal with the Bargainer. Luckily, there was this oth... Read more
Goal time

Right. I kind of drifted through November, and it shows in the dazzling lack of major results. The only movement my weight has made recently is that 2lbs up before TOM this week. Not good. So I am setting some proper goals for December, whi... Read more
Stuck on a treadmill (not the healthy kind)

I am a mess today. Right now I'm crying for about the fifth time, hiding behind my laptop screen so my bf doesn't see. And the reason is...basically that I'm an adult when I would quite like to still be a child. A student would do. But no, ... Read more
I need a personal hand-slapper
Friday, November 30, 2012      5 comments

Do you think I could get someone to do that? Just follow me round and slap my hand every time I reach for something I know I shouldn't have? I would be skinny in no time. I would also not be disappointed in myself as I am right now. I've ma... Read more

I just realised something about my ST last night. I had three different upper body workouts open, and figured I would skim through them and do the one I most liked the look of. So I did. Then it felt so good that I did the next one. Then I was... Read more
Sexy arms, here I come!

Although I'm gonna have to pass through sore arms to get there. They're kind of...throbbing. Today has been pretty darn good. I got up early and did C25K (I'm going to finish it one day, I swear), managed all 28 minutes and even worked on my ... Read more
Where did I put that resistance band?

I knew it. I knew it I knew it I knew it! Despite frequent requests, the engaged friend has picked sleeveless bridesmaid dresses. Of course they’re beautiful, and I will never stop being surprised that we actually found a colour that suits... Read more

I'm a bit traumatised by the tinned salmon I just bought for dinner. I thought it would be like tuna; skinned and boned and all chopped up into bite-size pieces. I did not think I would have to pick out the spine one vertebra at a time from a sl... Read more
I did it! (I wonder if I'll ever get tired of that title)

I jogged for 28 solid minutes! In spite of VIH telling me every few minutes that I couldn't do it, that I was too tired and too sore and too out of breath. I did it!!! I have the rest of this week off work and my bridesmaid dress fitting on S... Read more

There's a sentence going round my mind. I don't know if I made it up or if I read it somewhere and it just got stuck in there. 'I can't laugh at myself; people did it for me so often that I never learned how.' If I didn't make it up th... Read more

I ate half of a peanut butter chunky Kitkat yesterday, and the other half is still in the cupboard today! I DO have self-control! Other happy news:- - I beat my best 5K time by 20 seconds yesterday! - I just this second caught sight of... Read more

I am knackered, physically and mentally, after Parkrun this morning. In those at least 35 minutes (I don't have my time yet) I went through everything from 'I ran all the way up that hill - I AM AWESOME' to 'Walking. Again. Some runner you ... Read more

I'm not sold on yoga. Not that kind (whatever kind it was) anyway. But at least I've tried. I forgot just how much I love Paloma Faith. We listened to a few of her songs at work today and I haven't stopped singing them since, including whil... Read more

Body Step starts at 5.45. As it's now 6pm and I'm still at home, I think it's not happening tonight. I've been slowly getting better at knowing and listening to my body. For example, I know that the first half of the peanut butter Kitkat c... Read more
