Join me in my journey for 2019 as I try and improve my mental and physical health by loosing 50lbs in weight during 2019. The general aim to to loose at least 50lbs (more would be amazing) by decreasing my dependence on sugar and processed foods. I start January 1st so wish me luck!

Alongside this I am aiming to run my first full 10k this year. This on its own is a huge challenge for me as I currently can’t even run upstairs!! I am really looking forward to getting involved with running as I am hopeful that it may ease some of my mental health issues and really give me some mini goals to a for along the way.

The biggest incentive for all of this however is a trip to my favourite place on Earth, Disneyworld. The perfect place to celebrate with my family and enjoy the new me!!

    So another month gone and another medal earned this month. The weight loss however hasn't moved so far, in February. I have been struck by one of those cold that just wont go away. You know the ones that give you a couple of days feeling better and then attack again! As a result I have either eaten nothing or comfort food, but at least the running I have managed has kept the weight I have lost so far safe.
    So on to March and I can't wait. No excuses this month I am going to combine my running with some cycling and try some weights too. Onward and upwards folks x

    Hello you gorgeous lot! So my first weigh in session was a super success with 6lbs off! What an amazing start and a huge dent in my 50lb challenge, just 44lbs to go now!

    I am now well into Week 2 of Couch to 5K and absolutely loving it. I am just mad at myself that I didn't start this sooner. Already feeling the benefits with my mental health, it gives me so much clarity and helps me start the day focused and full of energy.

    I also had the privileged of meeting some of the team at The National Running Show over the weekend. I admit I felt a little like a deer in headlights when I got there, but the running community welcomed me with open arms and the Medal Mad Team are amazing. I picked myself up a little treat and got the first of the Fairytale series to start me off. Now this mean I just have to sign up for the rest I need the set!!

    So on to the next weigh in and hopefully rounding up to a full 1/2 stone off. We will see ....

    Hi all, So it's been a while since I checked in last and we have been hit by the New Year bug in our house and so my running was put on hold.

    However... the last 4 days have been amazing. I re-started Couch to 5k on Sunday and have done it everyday since! I am technically supposed to take a rest day in between sessions but I am getting up almost 2 hours earlier than usual desperate to get my trainers on, so I figured I would just roll with it! I already feel more energised and am looking forward to having my first official weigh in tomorrow, so I can update you on how well the 50lb loss is going so far. I am hopping for 7lbs but we will see!!

    With all my hard work this week I have managed to submit my first lot of evidence for my first 5K medal!!!! I can't wait until it arrives so I can hang it next to my treadmill, hopefully the shiny new addition will give me a boost when I start to struggle. Now which medal to pick next???

    Happy New Year to you all!!!

    And what a start I’ve had. As you know I did intend on starting Couch to 5k on Boxing Day but we were delayed coming back home so I ended up waiting until today. It was worth the wait though. I am absolutely exhausted but feel elated. Why did I wait to start for so long? Looking forward to my second session later in the week and I am looking ahead to earning my first medal. I’m coming for you!! ‏ — feeling happy
