Friday, July 24, 2015      6 comments

1) Whenever the heck you want. You do not owe health, fitness, or a particular body size/shape to anyone. 2) Whenever the heck you want. If the thought of slogging through yet another session fills you with dread - don't do it. 3) When... Read more

Working together?

I have encountered an issue. Yesterday I had a kind of epiphany. https://ithinkyoullfindi

Hands up anyone who has felt like a failure because they had to start again (again again again…) on this getting healthy thing. *sticks both hands up* Now lower your hands and use them to go read this article: www.nerdfitness... Read more

Who are you?

I am an introvert. Sometimes even the thought of social interaction takes more energy than I have. So last night after a gym induction so sexist I’m still struggling to contain my rage (that’s a-whole-nother blog), when I had to decide betwe... Read more

One of my friends was pregnant, but lost the baby girl at around 20 weeks. She’s only 22cm head to toe, 5cm across her shoulders. I know she’s not my baby, and I can’t even begin to imagine what my friend must be going through, but it ha... Read more

Oh dear

I knew it was a bad idea. I knew I would regret it. But I did it anyway. After 2 weeks of taking it easy to get over my virus, this morning I stepped on the scale. I saw 12 stone and my heart plummeted. I never ever wanted to see that number ag... Read more

A woman left lonely

Saturday, March 28, 2015      6 comments

I don't know if it's the miserable weather today, or the come-down after my best friend came to see me last night, but I feel terribly lonely today. I was hoping to go for tea with another friend but I've still not heard back from her. I'v... Read more

Just relax

Of course, as soon as I decide to kick this plateau into shape I get a virus. Turns out I'm really bad at resting when I'm ill. Yesterday I skipped my workout and phoned in sick to work (because I struggled to get out of bed), but felt guilty t... Read more

Ready to bust this plateau

Thursday, March 19, 2015      2 comments

I'm not sure if there is an upper time limit on plateaus, if I have sailed past that and am now in the realms of 'stagnation' or 'dead end'. Whatever you call it, my weight has not dropped below 161lbs for almost a year. You may have seen o... Read more

Love me?

There's so much advice out there, you can't really escape it. 'You can never be happy with a partner until you're happy with yourself.' 'For people to truly love you, you must first love yourself.' Don't work out because you hate ... Read more

Yesterday I reached the end of Melissa Bender's 13-week bikini ready body program.

End of an era

I actually, really did it! I'm FREEEE! I have hated my job for nearly 2 years and today was my last day. Ever. I got down to the car park at the end of the day and felt such a mix of emotions I didn't know whether to laugh or cry. I went ... Read more

New job

Tuesday, February 03, 2015      12 comments

I finally have some time for a blog! So, the mind-blowingly excellent news is that I have a new job! I have signed so many documents my signature no longer looks right, sent off every piece of ID I own, completed a medical questionnaire, an... Read more

Year after year (it's a long 'un!)

It's happy jar time! 2014 was not perfect of course, but it was a million times better than some years have been (I'm looking at you, 2013!) so my happy jar was full t... Read more

My best friend

I had a clear out tonight, during which I found a valentines card from the douchemonkey. I have absolutely no idea why I still have it; I went straight to rage 2 days after we broke up and (thought) I got rid of every trace of him. It's so path... Read more
