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!

My legs have that aching feeling

You know the one when you have exercised and your breathing has returned to normal, the red face has calmed down and the sweat has been showered off but your legs still ache. I didn't know about that a few months ago. Exercise was alien to me. It was something that other people do. Today I have done level one of shred, walked to and from an appointment and run/walked the route home from my daughters group. Now my legs are feeling it.

When I did 30DS this morning I did feel like I could handle another level but I knew that I had the walking and walk/run to do later in the day so I left it at just the one level.

My husband and Hyperboy came with me to drop Bookworm at her group. Hyperboy brought his bicycle so me and husband walk/ran back. I was rather pleased when husband informed me that rather than running at what I thought was about 5mph I was actually closer to 8mph.Of the 11m 21s journey I ran 6 minutes of it (3m 30s + 2m 30s). I did the journey about 1m 39s faster than last week.

I have signed up for a 10k race next May. It seems a long way off right now but I have never done anything like it before so I am more than a little scared. Looks like I really am stuck with this healthy, fitter new me. I like it.


  1. Good luck with the 10k, it's a brave thing to commit to. Well done :)

  2. Thank you. I am a little bit scared! :o)
