It’s been a while since I updated my blog – yesterday marked the start of Challenge 3 of my yearly challenge – Make 2014 Your Goal Year. Challenge 2 went the wrong way entirely – I gained 10lbs (partly due to being in holiday mode for a good four weeks!) I did have a great […]


It’s been 6 weeks since I started my challenge Make 2014 Your Goal Year. Yesterday was the start of Challenge 2 which will run until April 20th, Easter Sunday. The first challenge for me was a wake up call that I can actually do this. While I struggled at times, overall I’m proud of my […]


Happy New Year! Today is the first day of the rest of my life – well in reality everyday is that isn’t it? Today marks the first day of 2014 and the new me. This time I’m doing it! I had a great and fun filled Christmas with plenty of food, junk food and drinking. […]

01/12/2013 – Re-re-starting!

I’m re-re-starting. Can you do that? Ah well, I am. I started again on the today. Always seems like a good time to start new things, the 1st of the month, right? Although with the Christmas season upon us, I wonder how I will do. It’s my birthday this month too and I’ve a few […]


So, in my last update I described how I was restarting. And when I said restarting, I meant from the start. I was practically the same weight when I first joined the forum in June 2012. My weight went down for the remainder of 2012 but once I went back to college after the Christmas […]

25/08/2013 – Day 450

Once again, I hit a standstill! I have still been working out but doing very short walks and have totally stopped doing weight lifting. I’ve had exams the past two weeks and again, I’ve been exercising but very little. Tomorrow, I’m planning to start again once over. I’ve set a few goals and challenges for […]

06/07/2013 – Day 400

Well, we had have a totally turn around in the weather here. Last few weeks it’s been on and off sunny now we are set for a sunshine for a while! This has got me motivated to go out for my walks and take advantage of the warm weather since I don’t know how long […]


It’s been an interesting few weeks. I’ve taken part in a 100 day exercise challenge and been successful so far with 18 days in. Today wasn’t great; I was out for a walk and began to feel dizzy and sick so turned around and headed home. It was extremely warm out so it could have […]

01/06/2013 – Day 365

Today marks my 1 year since I started this journey. To getting half to goal by the end of last year to gaining that weight back over the first few months of this year, it’s been a roller coaster! I’m back now to get to my goal! Exams and college are done now and it’s […]


Well, April is nearly over. And with that, so ends my first month after restarting. I have to say, I’m really proud of what I have achieved. I have already met my 30 miles goal and I’ve 3 days to go on my weight lifting challenge. With 3 days left in the month, I think […]
