About Me

I am a 33 year old mum of two who has spent her entire teenage and adult life struggling with her weight. I am not going to struggle with it anymore. I am in charge!

Going well

So far this is looking to be a good week for me. I have managed to do 2 levels of 30 day shred back to back. I attempted a (very) little bit of running. I am eating well. I have had a night out with my husband. More smaller clothes are fitting. My brothers first baby has arrived. All in all I am feeling really good.

So doing level 2 and then level 1 of 30DS. Now that went well. I was really surprised at how well in fact. It felt easier than back on that first day that I did level 1. After that I could barely move. After 2+1 I was sweating like a pig but I didn't have too much trouble with anything.

Food - I have been using myfitnesspal to log my food and exercise. So far that is working really well for me.I have found it a great motivator for exercise because to see the calories I have burnt doing it works well for me. On the food side of things it does make me really accountable and makes me think about what I am eating.

A night out with my husband is always a good thing. It was looking a bit shaky there for a moment when on the day we discovered that the person who said they would baby sit had forgotten they were meant to be doing it. Luckily a friend was able to step in at the last minute so we still got to go.

I have pulled another pair of jeans out of the cupboard today which 5 weeks ago I could just about do up if I did the laying down, breathing in, rolling around thing. Today they fit really nicely.

New baby - Well that is always guaranteed to put a smile on my face but when it is my brothers first baby. Well let's just say that I couldn't be any more excited if it was my own baby. I can't wait to meet him. We don't live close by so I am waiting patiently for the OK to go and visit while they settle in to their new life.

Tonight I will be going swimming. Proper swimming for the first time in a while. I started going last year on a twice weekly basis and it was going really well. I got up to being able to do 1000 metres and then got lazy and stopped going. It is going to be the first day I haven't done 30DS since starting it.

And on top of all that it is a lovely sunny day here. I hope the sun is shining on you. Have a lovely day.


  1. Awe, I'm so jealous! I can't wait for my siblings to start having kids. I want to be an aunt so bad. I love babies! Swimming is a total blast...My favorite part is that you don't feel icky from sweating afterwards.

  2. The great thing is there is a big gap between my two brothers so I may well get to have all the fun again one day. I am itching to get over there for cuddles.
