Diet & Fitness Mondays


After a few hard week's training I had a nice easy week this week as I've built my mileage back up and done a few races over the last two weeks. The thing is now after having a few easy day's and eating what I like don't want to run again.



This is the message I had on Dailymile when having a few days off..

The Gallery:Mustachioed

Well I've thought long and hard about this week post as Tara @ The Gallery is give us a chance to win a  a Panasonic HM-TA1 High Definition Mobile Camera but my first thought when I heard what the theme was going to be was my Dad...

With a  real mustache....


 And because this is a competition I thought I'd add a little fun to this as my 2 oldest sons have already started to grow there mustache but you cant see it on this photo so I decided to do a little photo art....

You do know if they ever see this they wont be very impressed!!!! so hopefully they wont....


All my life I have felt tall long gone are the day's when they never made trousers for tall people. Now I feel tiny,my son on the left is only 14!!! I think he may be the one who ate the last millionaires shortbread as there is a hunt going on to see who ate the last one... My son on the right is near 17...

Millionaires shortbread...


As me and my 2 oldest boys are racing tonight I thought I'd make us a little treat for when we have done.


These treats always bring a tear to my eye when making as my grandma always made them for me at Easter, Birthdays, Christmas or just whenever she thought of me... up until a year ago when she fell over and broke her leg, now she is in a nursing home unable to ever walk again....

Diet & Fitness Mondays....


Been a long couple of months I have got out of running and all other exercise that I usual do.

All this through being ill for a month with a tooth infection that lead me to have 2 lots of antibiotic and a swollen face and lost half a stone in weight.

After that I spent the next month feeling sorry for myself not doing much exercise and eating lots of cake leading to putting that half a stone back.
