Why can’t I run away from my bad eating habits

I guess this is a call for help, a big fat shout out to anyone who can give me the advice, support or kick up the backside I need to get back on track with my eating. Those of you who have been following my blog for a while will know that despite the apparent … Continue reading

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

A very personal post

Today I took my daughter to the local hospital to see an ear nose and throat specialist as she was born with congenital pre auricular fistula (ear pits), its nothing serious but they wanted to just check if they had closed by themselves. So I walked the 2 and a half miles there, and then … Continue reading

A ten minute blast on the treadmill

I’ve had a busy old day today. Up early for Weightwatchers, I’ve put on 2.5lbs but hey that’s over 3 weeks, so kinda not that fussed as I know I will shift that in a week. Then had a meeting in Wanstead to discuss plans for a 5k family run in the summer. So seeing … 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

Half a Bleedin Pound

I lost half a pound this week. Better than nothing I hear you say. And you would be right…however for me to get to my ideal weight of 12 and a half stone I calculate that this would take me 2 years and 8 weeks. In other words by 3rd October 2015. Seriously I can’t … Continue reading

You must lose your babyweight NOW….OK???

Yesterday I sat all teary eyed as Kate and Wills stepped out of those hospital doors with their adorable little prince. Now I’m not particularly a royalist. but as a new mum I am just completely smitten with my baby girl, and spent most of the last few days reminiscing about the arrival of my … Continue reading

Itchycoo Park

I was going to call this post – I love my Running Club (Part 2) as a follow on to a post I wrote nearly 2 years ago when I first joined the mighty East London Runners, but I decided against the title for 2 reasons 1. ELR might think I’m after something with all … Continue reading

10,000 steps a day?

After yesterday’s disappointing result at Weightwatchers it could have gone two ways, I could have given up and gone on a 24 hour binge wallowing in self pity or else I could suck it up (and in) and refocus my energy into getting a better result next week – so that’s what I did. I … Continue reading

Eating like a hundred year old

So I’m not talking mashed up food or calories delivered intravenously or through a feeding tube, I’m talking about only choosing foods that could be found on this planet 100 years ago. At the start of June I decided to clean up my eating habits so to speak. I have been on some kind of … Continue reading

Why are we so obsessed with weight

Today I have been for two weigh ins, one for me and one for Rose. For me queuing up with my red weightwatchers book I was hoping for a weightloss, and after a week of counting points, eating lots of zero foods, running and generally sitting less and moving more i have managed to lose … Continue reading

Benidorm here I come

The sun is shining, it’s a beautiful day and I have got my days exercise done and dusted. Friday is baby swimming day with Rose. The swimming pool is 15 minutes away in the car, but it’s a lovely 30minutes walk along the greenway, a hidden gem of london which is in fact the great … Continue reading

I am a weight watcher again

So I didn’t quite make Parkrun at the weekend, mainly cos I was knackered after a difficult night with my little Rose. But also cos I am a little scared of donning my running shoes again. I am over 2 and a half stone heavier than I was when I last run, and carting that … Continue reading
