Here we go then.

As I said previously, I am having a serious health kick! I mentioned the detox but it has now evolved; I want to get in good shape and as I am not getting any younger nor am I blessed with skinny genes; I need to exercise!!

On Friday night I went shopping with hubby who wanted to buy some running trainers and a kit to train in. Saturday morning we got up while it was still dark and while most people were doing the 'walk of shame' home and we ran. We had planned our route and just ran a mile to ease ourselves into the new routine. It was definitely enough for me! I woke up today feeling rough so didn't run this time but my husband did. I wanted to but had to take it easy as do not want to get ill! We are getting up earlier to run tomorrow morning though. Doing it first thing in the morning is the best thing as it gets it over and done with and sets you up for the day - most people can't face exercise after work especially if you have had a bad day! Doing it first thing means it is out of the way and you don't have to worry about what the day throws at you.

I am glad my hubby has decided to run too as I have attempted it a couple of times recently but feel I need someone to encourage me and for me to encourage.

I am not terribly overweight just out of shape as my 'before' picture below shows. I do hope I will be sharing an after photo with you very soon!! That is the plan....

Watch this space!!


  1. You look great, you're nowhere near overweight, but I know exactly what you mean about wanting to get in shape and healthy. I'm doing the exact same thing this year, I'm too scared to put a photo of myself on my blog, but maybe I should take the plunge and "man-up"?

    Eek! xx

    1. I know what you mean, I am so self conscious but felt I had to do it to push myself. The post is out there now so I need to stick to my guns and post some results in a few weeks time! My finger hovered over the 'publish' button for a while I can tell ya!

      It just that too as you say, getting into shape. I don't want to be skinny just healthier and not so wobbly!

      Take the plunge!! :)


  2. What are you talking about, you are skinny and look gorgeous the way you are! Good luck with it all though. XxxX

    1. Bless you - thank you! Just want to get into better shape and not worry about a tummy! That is where my weight goes.... Plus I need to exercise! We all know it is good to do a little.

      Thanks for the luck!!
