Week 23 & 24

Well! What haven’t I eaten for the last 2 weeks!? Guys I have completely lost focus. Obviously I’ve not been at my healthiest lately. But I’m not just taking about the sinusitis and the allergic reaction.  Please see exhibits A-D… Look, I know that I was ill and that genuinely did stop me from going…

I just HAD to write this down 

I’m going to say this once so listen up. And I am of course talking to myself.  You are laying in bed thinking about how lovely tonight was. You are also thinking about how you are going to have to hit the gym tomorrow to work off the food you ate.  There’s nothing immediately wrong…

Week 20 & 21

What a couple of weeks it’s been. Hayls, Bec and I went on a bit of a road trip to Poole. It was hilarious and lots of fun.  Hayley met her biggest fan.  Holly made sure that I had enough selfies of her on my phone. Just in case.  And then Harri turned 18. It’s…

Week 19 – The Week of Change 

This is a week of change people!! A week of change!  I had an awesome chat with my friend Tooz this week. She has really helped me focus my mind on a little thing I like to call nutrition.  The simple fact is that without a healthy and balanced diet, all this work in the…

Weight Watcher

Hey guys! So I thought I’d write a different kind of post this week. I thought it might be helpful to write a little bit about my diet when I was on Weight Watchers. If you don’t know how Weight Watchers works, in a nutshell… based on your sex, age and weight, you get issued…

Week 17 and 18

Apologies for the radio silence peeps! Let me explain. I have had a pretty sporadic gym-life-balance for the last couple of weeks. Bank Holiday was mental busy at work and was actually exhausting. So the gym fell away. The following week I got back in the zone with my writing. It has been a while!…

Week 16

This week was somewhat of a milestone… my little brother turned 18! 18! What follows is a collage of some pics from the last couple of years. The reason for their inclusion will become clear. So Matthew is now all grown up. Free to make his own decisions. The pictures that follow uphold that idea….

Week 15 

Amongst other things, this week has included my new favourite breakfast! Protein pancakes, prosciutto, scrambled eggs, banana and maple syrup. That is how you win at breakfast.      It has been a week of trying many new things at the gym. My friend Tooz helped me devise a new gym plan with more focus on…

Week 14

Week 13 

This week I have continued my gym journey. I’ve started using Run Keeper again. I used it a lot whilst on walks and jogs with family and friends back when I lost my weight.  My plan is to record my runs in Run Keeper so that I can keep track of how far I’m running. I…

Week 12

Oh Lord. It’s Easter. No point in denying it or even skirting around it. Chocolate has triumphed.  I asked my mum not to get me an egg this year. How good am I!? I sort of thought she’d end up getting me one anyway but thankfully she didn’t. Go me!! However… In an effort to…

Week 11

0.5 lbs off peeps! Was surprised by it. It took so long to lose the last 2 lbs that I didn’t expect another loss (no matter how small) so soon after. So that was a happy surprise. Once again I’ve been gyming. Tried to structure my workouts a bit more. Based on a 5 day…
