Fitness Fanatics Fridays Week 1

I have decided to join in with A Summer Full of Peaches Fitness Fanatics Fridays linky to help inspire me to keep up the fitness training! Now I have never in my life been described as fitness fanatic - at uni I 'd play rugby then sink 6 pints in the pub afterwards... but things can change and so can I!

My training for my charity run has been changing me a bit as I am finding how much I enjoy running! Having not been able to run for more than a very short distance I am now running for up to 35 minute without stopping or 2 lots of 20 minutes with a short break in between. If you want to see how I am doing then I am on MapMyRun.

To give me the impetus to keep this up I got my daughter to photograph me in my running kit this morning. I deliberately didn't breathe in:

So after 2 months of running I have got into the next size down running top but its a long way to go! So how am I planning on keeping it up and getting those wobbly bits off?

I have been asked to use the Thinking Slimmer slimpods to use my sub conscious to get the weight off. I never stick to diets for long and I've lost the same 1/2 stone several times in the last 18 months. The slimpods are designed to retrain the brain to finally lose the weight for good! There is also a fit pod to help me keep motivated and a chill pod to unwind with. I have set my goals:

On Sunday I have a whole day boot camp which should help give a real kick start to the fitness regime. Watch this space..


  1. Really excited that you have joined in. Its really great to have people who are committed and who want to put in the work to see the results. I envy your boot camp, I did some 2 years ago and although though hard, I felt really great after them. Well done on getting to the next size down , i think you look great :)

  2. I would love to start boot camp but there doesn't seem to be any near me.

    I can't wait to follow everyone's progress on this linky. Inspiration is motivation :)



I love it when people leave a message
