Run Fatty Run

Walking into the office on a Monday morning after a heavy weekend I was bombarded by one of the sports team “You are going to do the run on Saturday too right?” she said enthusiastically I was coordinating volunteers for the launch of Newham Councils community fit club an initiative to get residents excited about … Continue reading

Fat women are lazy and discussting

No the final word in my title is not one of my typos, “discussting” is a word, well apparently it is if you are an ignorant, coward of an internet troll, one who takes the time to leave a comment on my blog. Over the years I have had a few rude messages left on … Continue reading

Screw YOU Doctor

My daughter however first made her way round the iconic London Marathon route at only 5 weeks, no not 5 weeks old…5 weeks in gestation. … Continue reading

Man vs Fat

Training for a marathon does NOT make you thin

You would think that as a plus sized athlete (yep thats me) that by simply following a strict marathon training plan, which consisting of 4 run sessions a week, covering between 20 and 30 kilometres, including threshold, speed and long runs plus a weekly circuits class that the weight would simply drop off. This is … Continue reading

New Year Resolutions

As we hurtle towards the end of this month, the first of this new year I thought it about time for me to look back on January 2014. Not only in terms of my progress but reflect also the whole concept of resolutions and how useful they are. I mean many of us make them each … Continue reading

Does being poor equal being obese?

So there are two bits of research on Obesity that I have come across today that have given me something to think about, whilst at the same time given me an excuse to post this picture of me and my siblings (oh plus a random cousin) and my mum. I am the one in the … Continue reading

Cars and Kettlebells

I have a car. I don’t drive it that often, but it is a useful asset to family life. It is however a bit of a pain in the backside sometimes, and I often wonder if it is worth the expense or the hassle to keep it on the road. Today for example I have spent most of … Continue reading

Why you should never restart a diet on a Monday

I have seriously lost track of how many diets I have started throughout my life. How many new fads, new regimes, new approaches…hey I’ve even joined Weightwatchers 4 different times over the last 20 years. My normal thinking is “I’ll start on Monday” or “I’ll start in the New Year” I get that. Monday marks … Continue reading

Falling off the wagon

My name is Julie and it has been 10 days since my last run. I have a good excuse though as I have an undiagnosed dodgy right knee which is still giving me grief. However, in all honesty I haven’t done anything yet to identify the source of the problem, like go to my GP … Continue reading
