Diet & Fitness Mondays: Fit To Fitter: Motivation Monday.

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.

This is the first week I have manage to do 2 full club sessions at the running club and finally feel I’m coming back.

So now I want to forget about the last 2 months and start a fresh.

My goals are to get as fit as I could possible can be and lose 2 stone of weight as coming back I can really feel my weight.

    Wow that's an awful lots of running! Over the past couple of weeks I've taken up running, I was doing 3 days a week but geared it up to 5 times a week. However my legs were so tights yesterday from running 3 days in a row I didn't go today so they could recover a bit. I've got a 5K race on Sunday, a 10K in July and then a half marathon at the end of September so I'm training hard. It's good fun if not a lot of hard work =)Bow Dream Nation xx

    Good for you, for starting fresh! Perhaps I'll eat the cake you won't be having this month :).Jeaninehttp://dressmytruth.blogspot.com

    Well done you. I find it so hard to get motivated. We have a treadmill and I hate it. I look like a demented elephant when I run but I keep trying! Hubby keep threatening to film it and out it on you tube!X x

    Oh I wish I could run but I would have two black eyes and the council might ask me to pay to repair the pavements! My colleague runs 13 mile on a morning before work and I admire her so much. This time next year I have told her I will be joining her "watch this space"

    I love walking at a fast paste instead of running. I use to run but I would get back and knees pain so for me is walking, some weights and some yoga.I'm so impressed with your commitment and organization skills!

  6. Thanks for the comments,you know my downfall Jeanine,haPlease may I,i joined a gym for treadmill runs in winter and i hate it too,think ive only used it twice…Dianne all the best,i say go for it,but watch out gets additive:)Thanks Ofelia,i love yoga too but never seem to find the time 🙂

    All that running is so impressive!! I've just started running but gave up after 5 miles last week, trying to do it regularly though as I really want to build it into my routine and tone my legs/bum!xx
