The Constant Challenge

I've been fighting to lose my extra weight for years. I am always successful in losing the weight, but not so much in keeping it off. This has to be the last time I go through this. I need to finally lose the weight and feel good about my body.

Two years ago my husband and I started running races. We ran a half marathon in September 2013 and let ourselves go after that. We are now getting back in shape and signing up for more races.

Thanks! I think my exam went ok! I needed a 68 to get a 70 (a distinction, the highest mark) in the class, so I'm hoping I got that! There were a few questions that completely came out of left filed, but everyone felt that way. I hope I did well enough!

I also tried taking the turmeric in the afternoon after having a cup of coffee and it bothered my stomach. So no more turmeric for me!

That makes sense, but yoga truly is stretching, I guess you don't really stretch your feet and calves too much though. I have a massage therapist who works on me occasionally (it's so hard without him in the UK!) and he said I really need to stretch more than what I do. I need to start doing yoga again as I know that really helped. My hips are so tight! I need to get them loosened up for sure! And my calves, and my shoulders, I'm just "old" haha

I don't get email notifications for blogs anymore. I have to check my friend feed each day in order to catch them. No idea why Spark changed it. Thanks for reading my blogs. The Tabata timer is simply amazing! New favorite app!
