Well ladies, I near passed out running the race for life given it was about 100 degrees in the shade in Richmond today. However, I did run the lot 35 mins which is a wee bit faster than I'd been training so, go me!
Did not cry at all on the way round. Got it all out of my system when we parked and I saw a no more than 11 year old girl with her mum running for their dad who died this year
I though, gosh, at least I am running with a pic of me, dad, mum and sis at my wedding on my back...it really humbled me and we had no tissues and I had to use (this is actually quite funny) the old beer mat that DH keeps in his car to wipe the windows....the car used to be dads...so did the cloth.
Welcome to the newcomers on the other thread. Well done to Bella for her 3lbs loss - MAJOR RING A DING DING to you my lovely!
I'm going to shower and have a little lie down before I go off for my pampering.
Sycamore - well done! Fantastic - and great speed too.
Trillian - do I gather you have a NEW JOB then?
I tried the dress on that I bought 2 weeks ago (and it was too tight) and it now fits quite well . I'll just have to hope that I don't get too thin for it by the time of the wedding, but if I do I'm not going to complain
flamingo - I know exactly what you mean about FF only doing pounds not kg - isn't it frustrating? (But I also log my exact kg weight loss in a separate spreadsheet on my laptop as I'm a nerdy spreadsheet freak.)
sycamore - brilliant on the run! I am full of admiration.
Today I tried on a dress that I bought as a slimming incentive BEFORE I even got pregnant and stacked on the weight. I can get into it now! Although it is a little tight around the 'caboose' for public viewing. DH loves the dress and wants me to wear it for a special night out in 10 days time. He thinks I have been doing so well with the weight loss that 10 days is plenty of time to get skinny enough to wear it in public. I hope so... but I suspect I'll just end up wearing those horrendous magic knickers. And therefore being unable to eat anything at the restaurant. Which may be a good thing I suppose.
I have been out at the seaside today and I decided to treat myself to an ice cream, but when I got to the kiosk I decided they didn't look nice enough to waste the calories on so didn't bother. Yay to me!
Homemade (-ish) vegetable lasagne - with real vegetables ! - for tea. With wine and probably bread but I will try not to have too much.
I have been very teary and miserable these last few days. I cried my eyes out this morning as it all seemed too hard and too much pressure ( "it all" = getting ready for a day out at the seaside )
Anyone feel like kicking me up the arse? I think I need it.
I wonder if I am getting more menopausy (am nearly 45) or whether the diet is dragging me down.
Anyway here is my arse ( ! ) please give it a kick.
