Using a combination of running, healthy eating and alcohol reduction I will lose at least 50 pounds. My weight crept up after having my little girl 4 years ago and suffering postnatal depression and anxiety. I am now in a viscous circle of eating cos I am anxious and being anxious and depressed about my weight gain. I started running for my mental health but alone it is not enough to tackle the weight loss but 2019 is going to be the year when I sort self out and get my arse into gear.

    +2 lb 🤦🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♀️😭 Quarter if the way through the year and I am 1lb lighter 🤦🏼‍♀️. My instinct is to give up (that's what I would normally do). But I really want to lose at least some of the 50lb, even if I fail this challenge (although I want the bling) cos I love running and want to be better at it and I know my weight is holding me back. So I'm going to try to just focus on smaller goals for now and may spam this page each day to keep on track x

    Shaved 3mins off my 10k on today. Really pleased with that. The race was very hard mentally tho as it was more serious than any I have done before so had to get over the fact I was one of the last to finish. Had to keep repeating to myself 'my race, my pace'

    Still totally failing with the diet. But just looked at my running stats....have run more km than last week and more than last month. If I keep this up it will before than last year over all. Focussing on the positives 😆

    Taking back control. Planning out what I am going to eat this week and am exercise plan. Need to get my head back in the game. January went so well so I'm going to weigh in, do measurements and start again in the morning 💪 Focussing one day at a time.

    Stroke resolution run 10k smashed. Training has been rubbish but got out there, dug deep and jeffed a pb. It was very cold and windy but I really enjoyed it. Feeling a real buzz of positivity now.

    This week I am focussing on running not weight loss. I have my nans funeral on Friday and a 10k race on Sunday. My training went to pot due to my nans illness and death, but I am determined to complete it however slow. So far I have done 2 runs this week and have a short run planned for Friday morning to keep the legs moving and to help clear my head. And Sunday I will go and do my best and focus on finishing, not time 😊

    Faced the scales this morning. My emotional bingeing hasnt completely undune my progress....+3lbs.
    What's done is done tho. Aim for this week....have a more positive outlook, drink less alcohol, run more in prep for my 10km race on Sunday. Couldn't get out of the house to run today, so with no access to a treadmill I ran on the stop for 20 mins (better than nothing) 😂😂

    So February has flown by. Been pretty rubbish personally, emotionally and diet wise. I think I have probably undone all of January's weight loss 🙊 but tomorrow is a new day and a new month. I am determined to get this 🏅 so I am going to prep, plan and be focussed.

    Having a crappy week after the lose of close family member. Avoiding the scales, eating and drinking crap, bit tomorrow is a new day and I will get out for a run even if it is only little. On the plus side I might be signing up to a pretty muddy run with friends and I received my first time for the running hat medal 😊

    Taking a new approach this week and focussing on my runs as the diet has gone out the window due family illness. Did two lunchtime runs, increasing the distance on the second and today pushed myself to do 10k for one of my 'Running hat' ties. Still slow but really enjoyed it and went out without a route, time or distance planned and just kept going.

    Changed weigh in day from Tuesday to Monday to try to start the week off with motivation. By some absolute miracle I've lost 1lb. Totally undeserved but I'm back to almost where I was.
    Work and other commitments meant no running but I've had a reminder of my 10k in 4weeks so it's time to get serious

    Seems the virtual kick up the arse I gave myself last week didn't work. Think I might need an actual one now. Last week I lost 0.5lb taking January total to -6.5. Completely lost my mojo though (bit worrying after only 3 weeks😤). Expecting a gain tomorrow morning but if I can get my head in gear I can pull it back. On a positive note had some nice runs though

  • Finally managed to get out for a short run after about 4 weeks of being sick. It wasn't great, my head wanted to do more but my body was definitely tired...good starting point though
