Insta fitness and chasing tiny

In Interwebs

(This post doesn’t have an image attached to it because the search for “thinspiration” to demonstrate what I am getting at turned up some fucking horrific images and I don’t want to contribute to that.) Despite being a late adopter to Instagram (as per usual;… read full entry →

The one where I enter a marathon

In Fitness

Last week I entered a marathon. Yes, me, the person who runs slow AF half marathons on no training because it seems like too much effort. I have entered a bloody marathon. And not just ANY marathon, oh no. I have entered the “How Hard… read full entry →

Rabbits, half marathons, fitness & weddings

In Fitness, Personal, Pets

Holy crap, it feels like I basically haven’t stopped doing stuff lately. I’d blame that for my inconsistent blogging but we all know that’s been an issue for many years, so I’ll cut to the chase and get you up to speed on the funky… read full entry →

In which my cat makes me go to the gym

In Fitness, Personal, Pets

I did something yesterday that I’ve been working up to since August last year. I called a local free weights gym to see if they could give me advice, check my form, and generally just introduce me to the gym environment so that I can… read full entry →

Back on track: fitness, fatness and binging

In Fitness, Personal

So having confessed a couple of weeks ago that I’ve been slacking off on my workouts and binging on shit food, I decided that I was absolutely going to knuckle down, STFU and get on with not-being-a-fatty again. There’s no point in me whining about… read full entry →

Another setback

In Fitness, Personal

The next time I decide to utter something as stupid as “I’ve never had a running injury…”, somebody please punch me in the face. I’ve clearly jinxed myself as I’ve now fucked up my other foot. On the 4th week of training for the Milton… read full entry →

Half marathon training plan

In Fitness

Now that I have officially signed up to my first half marathon (so much for pacing myself and doing a 10k first) — a half marathon that actually isn’t that far away — I’ve had to come up with a “proper” half marathon training plan.… read full entry →

Peer Pressure

In WTF

I may have just been bullied into committing to running a half marathon. In December. Despite having only done one short run since I injured my foot. WTF have I done…

SFS: “So you’ve had no sugar AT ALL this week?”

In Personal, Updates

Gaz asked me the other night “so you’ve had no sugar AT ALL this week?” And I said “well yes, I’ve had a banana, and they contain fructose” And after some further discussion he went on to ask with a raised eyebrow, “who made up… read full entry →

And so it begins: Sugar Free September 2014

In Personal

Day 1 of 30, and what a shitty day to start. The end of the summer holidays, which means no more week nights with Gaz; the return to the monotony of the nursery run routine (although with the unhelpful addition of a school run from… read full entry →

Absolutely Gutted

In WTF

I had a bit of a crappy weekend. Bear with me here through another moan, I know I’ve done a lot of it lately. It started on Saturday morning after I picked the kids up from Karl’s mum’s. Within minutes of getting home both of… read full entry →

Uh oh, it’s nearly Sugar Free September again

In Personal

In July, I had a whinge at a friend of mine via Facebook about how I was putting a shit ton of work into this fitness lark and seeing no obvious returns and then blogged my frustration too. I was beginning to feel demotivated and… read full entry →
