Wednesday weigh-in – 27th March

It’s time for some accountability. Every Wednesday I’m going to try to do a quick blog post with an update on the increase or decrease of weight, and most importantly, how the binge eating is going. It’s a “weigh in” in the sense of weighing in on how things are going; not so much the weight being the most important thing (it’s not). And hey, alliteration is cool right?

As I confessed recently on my Facebook page I recently relapsed with my binge eating. It was creeping on me since before Christmas, and after another reality check this year I was back to old ways. [...]  read more

Life update – Potter Head Run Club and injuries

Oh hey world! It’s been a while, hasn’t it. I’ve been living a crazy busy life again, and if there’s something I’ve learned since having kids is that there’s never time for everything. You’re forever playing the juggling game and figuring out which one you can get away with not giving any attention to and hope you don’t drop anything.

It turns out I’m not great at juggling and I’ve been dropping balls (ha – that sounds rude).

There’s so much that I want to write about in detail, but it’s a rare night that I have the time to sit down and blog. I don’t think I’ll get time to write in detail, so here’s a speedy recap of everything going on in my life. [...]  read more

Clean up Australia Day 2019

This year one of my 52 in 52 goals was to participate in Clean Up Australia Day 2019. It was one of those items that I decided on when looking at a recap on the news last year. I knew I would have a feel good moment from it, so onto the list it went!

My friends decided to join me, although unfortunately our first choice location wasn’t available after the terrible beach erosion from Cyclone Oma. We were the fourth team to work through this area this morning and we were still collecting this much rubbish and cigarette butts! [...]  read more

Life’s short – be in all the photos

Last week we celebrated my parent’s 70th birthday. It was really fun; my sister, sister-in-law, husband and I had joined forces to organise it as a gift for Mum and Dad. We had invited a lot of their friends and family, and for those who couldn’t make they recorded video messages we surprised my parents with later.

I had been tasked with creating a photo slide to play on rotation on the big screen. I had raided my mother’s photo collection and spent nearly 48 hours in front of the computer and scanner. Together with photos emailed to me from the family we had over 400 images. [...]  read more

Half marathon training diary – 27 weeks to go

It’s been a while since my last running update, nearly 2 months in fact. There’s still 27 weeks to go until the half marathon, and things are progressing well, but there’s still a lot of room for improvement. Let’s check it out.

Calendar recap

The last time I wrote was back on the 2nd of December. Since then we’ve had Christmas and New Years, aka the silly season.

As you can see the mileage is pretty low and I haven’t been sticking to my 3 – 4 runs a week goal. There’s a few reasons for that: [...]  read more
