Run Yourself New Week 1..

Run Yourself New Week 1:

Can you believe it!? I start trying to get fit and then end up getting a bit of a chill/fever walking to the dentist in the cold!!

Isn’t this always the way!?

If it is not a cold it is pain from over doing it leaving me having to have time off.

If it is not over doing it, it is life getting in the way and leaving me having to take time off.

Then that horrible starting again feeling wereI can not be bothered to work out because it feels tough.

A never ending circle. 


This week has been all about trying to get back into exercise and drink more water. Adding lemon into my water to give it a little bit of a kick and taste.

The thing is when you have children and a dog that wants walking you can not be poorly yourself can you? As you have no time to get ill. Things still need to be done around the house, food to be made, children to be looked after. I think you should be able to choose which week you want to be sick. Just like a work holiday.

When you’re not feeling up to it but want to workout it is always a good idea to do less. So also this week was all about just doing some little run with my daughter and long walks with Mollie the Collie.

No odd trainers for me today just a nice bright pair!!

    You started good! I did fitness this week twice instead of four times. Next week I will start with four times again and eat healtier.

    Hi Clairejustine, isn't it always the way that when you just find your workout mojo, you go and get sick? It looks like you are doing just fine though and I hope you feel better now. I have to ask did you name your dog Mollie because she was a collie? It did make me chuckle!Thank you for linking up with the #MMBC.xx
