By the time you’re reading this I’ll be on my way to, hopefully, completing my first marathon and ticking off No. of the 35 at 35 list.
I was never really happy with these photos in the original post, and not just because of the poor quality iPhone photography. Around this time last year I was really spurred into sorting out my fitness, I’d put on a bunch a weight and wasn’t happy. So much so that I bought this skirt in a size smaller as I was so determined to get myself in shape.

We did it, and in a pretty good time 3hr 42mins. Go us! I was first up with the longest leg at 8.3miles. Turns out Edinburgh has a pretty flat course which starts with a downhill stretch, all good for me. Given I live at the top of a hill and all my training involved hill runs I smashed this little course, well by my … Continue reading Keep On Running – Update
No. 35 of my 35 at 35 list is a simple one but perhaps the biggest, being comfortable with my body. I think this is something that most women struggle with, particularly at this time of year when temperatures are rising and bikini season is upon us. It’s impossible to escape the message thrust upon us by the media as to what our bikini body … Continue reading Bikini Body Ready? – Ripped in 30 Results
It was maybe hopeful thinking that I was gonna get up early every morning and complete the shred. I ended up doing it most nights when I came home from work. As a result some days I was tried, a few I had headaches and a few more days I was hungover! So I missed 8 days. Doesn’t sound too bad until you work out … Continue reading 30 Day Shred Update
You woulda thought 30 days of sit ups and squats in June woulda been enough for me. Turns out it not. I really want to get in shape for Barcelona so for July I’m going to attempt Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred. It’s only 20mins so surely I can manage to get up early every morning and do it. We’ll see. I’ve got a new … Continue reading 30 Day Shred
Summer is fast approaching and I am nowhere near beach ready. For weeks I’ve been trying to get the motivation together to eat healthily and exercise but it’s just not happening. I came across a squat challenge on Pinterest and was thinking of giving it a go during June. Then yesterday a friend of mine signed up to an ab challenge on facebook. From there … Continue reading My Body’s too Bootylicious for you Baby
Well that’s my six weeks over. I’m not happy with the results though and this is all down to me. You’re supposed to do the workout 5-6 times a week, I have not! Some weeks I managed 5 but mostly it was 4 times. This last week I started well as it was the last week but by Friday it all went to pot. I … Continue reading 1 and 2 and 3 and 4, Get them Sit-Up’s right Update
This week had been mostly about exercise. I started Jillian Michaels 6 week 6 pack. Every muscle in my body was sore for the first few days, I’m glad to say I seem to have passed that stage and can now walk and sit down like a normal person. Along with that I’ve been back out running with Roz and even managed a run on … Continue reading 7 Days
I realised this week I didn’t update you all on how I did on the 5:2 diet. I stuck to it for the six weeks and lost a total of 8pounds. Not to shabby eh? I didn’t find it that hard to be honest. I had breakfast, lunch and dinner on the ‘starve’ days and could still have some sneaky sweeties on the other days. … Continue reading 1 and 2 and 3 and 4, get them sit ups right
