30 September 2010 – hit by the lurgy

image

Things got off to a bad start this morning. I woke up feeling rubbish. Rae has some kind of lurgy and I think she’s given it to me. The Wii didn’t seem like a good plan with a throbbing head so I decided to conserve my energy for the walk to work and took some high does vitamin C to try to ward off the germs. Continue reading

29 September 2010 – twenty six point two doubts and fears

Too far!

Too far!

First thing this morning, instead of doing my Wii Fit I booted up the lap top and went onto the Walk The Walk website to register for the Moonwalk. Strike while the iron is hot is my new motto. Well, that and don’t give yourself a chance to chicken out. There were all sorts of choices to make which threw me a bit because I hadn’t really thought about any of them. Continue reading

28 September 2010 – Moonwalk serendipity

image

The morning was dark and dull in Southampton today and rain was forecast. Still, I told myself I got wet on the walk home last night so I might as well get wet on the way back in. In the end I made it to the office just before the rain really started so I was damp rather than wet. Once in a while luck is on my side. Continue reading

27 September 2010 – 0.6lb of disappointment

image

With two long walks over the weekend and a fair bit of exercise during the week not to mention no real food disasters I thought I might get a decent result on the scales this morning. What a disappointment. Even after I’d weighed myself three times just to be sure all I’d lost was 0.6lb. This was really not what I wanted to see and it made me wonder exactly what I had to do to lose weight. Continue reading

26 September 2010 – reminders and incentives

image

After yesterday’s sunshine today dawned overcast and cloudy. I spent the morning downloading some of my fat photos to the BL site in the spirit of full disclosure. Then I got Commando to take one of me holding up the jeans I used to wear when I was at my biggest. It’s hard to believe they used to be tight and now you could get me and Commando both in them!!! I’ve kept them so that I have a reminder of what I was and what I DO NOT want to go back to. Continue reading

25 September 2010 – a run and a new path to try

Maybe next week

Maybe next week

while I was eating my weekend treat low fat croissant breakfast I could see the sun is shining outside. Commando was in a bad mood because he was tired so he didn’t join me for the riverside walk but I still went because I wanted to check out the new GPS app. It was free so I wasn’t sure it would be any good but it said it tracked miles, speed and steps which is just the kind of thing I need. It turned out to be far beer than expected. It even shows your sped while you’re walking plus calories burned and maps the walk. What a bargain! Continue reading

24 September 2010 – rain the river and some hills

Gaters Hill

Gaters Hill

The plan was to get up early this morning but I didn’t. Even so, once I had my breakfast I set off on a walk down to the river even though it was thinking about raining. The sky was nothing but black clouds and I had my fingers crossed the rain would hold off until I got home again because I hate walking in the rain. Just in case it didn’t I took my very fetching beret and wore my mac. Continue reading

23 September – fear of going it alone

In a dither

In a dither

When I woke up this morning I told myself it was a new day. I read through all the comments about the new site last night and it seems like most people are going to give the new site a go so I guess I will too. Hopefully it will be OK and we will soon get used to it. Feeling very determined, if still a little tired, I did my Wii and some cycling then set off for a wet walk to work. Continue reading

22 September 2010 – when will I stop feeling like a fat girl?

image

It’s been quite misty in the mornings all week, autumn is certainly on the way. Last night I got a worrying message from the BL site help team to say the site is closing down. It feels like devastating news because I’ve done so well since I’ve joined and I’m not sure how I will manage without all the help and support from all the other members never mind the food and exercise diaries. They have offered us discounted membership on mother site called Weighlossresources but I’m not sure it will be as good so I’m all in a dither about whether to take it up. Continue reading
