    Ok - I hit my target but i’m going to see how much I can do before the end of the year

    Picked some apples that were growing on a tree along my run/walk route - when Mother Nature offers you free food, it’s rude to say ‘no’

    Haven’t forgotten about this challenge, just had Real Life stuff getting in the way of my updating, like my brother’s wedding (good time had by all)

    And we lost Mr Psycho’s beloved grandfather to a combination of cancer & chest infection so there’s been dealing with that.

    I also made the conscious decision to slow down on the challenge as I realised the original end date I’d set for myself was October- mentally told myself to slow down as all I was going to do was exhaust myself - and work is doing a pretty good job of exhausting me on it’s own as we’re extremely short-staffed and most of us are having to come in early.

    Oh well, September isn’t a bad place to complete a challenge and i was worried at one point that I’d set myself an impossible goal however...


    490.75/500k - OMG I’m almost there! I can’t believe it!

    Just a quick accountability update. Weight loss has been a slower journey than I anticipated, but I am still trying to keep my focus on this goal. I went up some first to 189 lbs - not proud of that, but it did help me to realize that I had to lose weight.
    This morning, I weighed myself in at 182 lbs. I have been making some lifestyle changes that have helped a lot, and plan to keep at it with those until I'm back where I want to be!

    Haven’t forgotten this challenge, just been busy. My weight is back down to what it was before Christmas - hurray!

    Brother’s wedding next weekend, dress is a size 16 (double hurray!)

    448.60k/500k - that crept up quicker than I thought it was going to!

    I currently weigh 185 lbs, and my goal is to get myself back to 160 lbs by the time that it really starts to feel like fall here in October.

    Switching up my workouts as it seems my weight loss has slowed down a bit, interval running mixed with hula-hooping.

    My shoe is filling nicely and my ‘Mirror,Mirror’ medal arrived

    I had planned on doing a C25K as part of my challenge but decided to try and jeff a 10k without any training!
    After my grandfather passed away I wanted to do something positive in his memory so I signed up to do the British heart foundation Tower of London 10k. I only signed up a week before the event and have never run anything in my life, stupid I know. On the day we were hit with sun, rain & hail but I got round the course by jeffing and finished in 1hr 31mins (Normally takes me 2hrs to walk 10k) I raised over £600 for the British heart foundation in memory of my grandad and I'm a little bit proud of myself!

    Signing off for weekend after this post as Beloved Hubby wants me to have some rest time this afternoon. Personally I don’t think I can cope with the inactivity this will involve but I am (sometimes) a dutiful wife and today I’ll do as he wants.

    This will probably end with me going to bed extremely early in order to avoid the temptation to snack (a big reason I go for very long walks, btw. Can’t eat if you’re nowhere near the food)

    Oh well, enjoy your bank holiday everyone xx

  • Had to really push myself to go for a second walk today, despite the nice weather. Kept telling myself “just a bit further” which I don’t normally have to do. But never mind, it’s done now

    Sister-in-law to be’s Hen Do is all booked for 1st June and because it’s on a Saturday, the healthy eating plan goes out the window and I’m having deep fried cheese & relish followed by a steak burger at the restaurant, if that’s not motivating for further weight loss then I don’t know what is!

    This is followed by a cocktail making class (I do love a class where you can drink your mistakes) and karaoke. Sounds like a good night to me 😁

    We have added a new downloads section on the website. A few extra motivation tools to keep you going.
    New Downloads Section
    http://
    Only certain challenges have downloads such as the Shelf to 5K, I Run with Unicorns and all of the Christmas themed medals.
  • Just a quickie wall today as I’m absolutely knackered. I still managed 3k or so but I’m too tired to do anything more. But tomorrow is another day and there will be another opportunity.

    My sister-in-law loved the dress so that’s a bonus ‘cos I’m not returning it.

    Needed one thing to go right today - got soaked on my morning walk, my phone kept pausing the running app without me realising at points, then my earphones decided to run out of juice and just to add a cherry to my day, I got to work and found my supervisor going through my desk because “she thought there were loose notes that someone wanted in there" then she walked away, without apologising for going through my desk, and just left all the stuff she'd pulled out scattered all over my desk for me to clean up.

    Oh well, on the upside, my dress for my brother’s wedding arrived and it’s size 16 and fits! (Needs altering a little bit just so it fits absolutely perfectly) and I managed to push my walk this afternoon a little bit further - to make up for my phone being a jerk!

    304.15k/500k whoop! Smashed the 300k! Next goal is 350l

    It’s wet, it’s windy, I’ve done a full day at work but I’m also feeling fantastic because that’s another 5k under my belt - even though my ponytail is wet and my jacket needs to be put through the dryer.

    283.04/500k - it’s creeping up slowly

    Just a quick update today. Easter is over and I’m back on track (even though friends of mine from the children’s ward have given me 3 of their excess Easter eggs)

    Managed 5k before work today.
