Under 'Random Musings' you will find me babbling on about epiphanies I have had whilst out running, how I am losing weight, what kinds of things I eat and general fluff that drifts around in … Continue reading Welcome…
Zig Ziglar once said “People often say motivation doesn’t last. Neither does bathing—that’s why we recommend it daily.” Last month I found a bit of motivation to try harder at being fitter. I kept a food diary and noticed what I was putting in my mouth. I watched how many steps I was doing and … Continue reading Did I ever tell you about my elusive mate Motivation?
Yesterday was probably one of the best I’ve had since lockdown started (12 weeks for me?!?! Or something?)Nothing in particular happened, I just felt good, my back/hip/wandering Pelvis didn’t hurt too much.I spent the day at home in the house with my King and we were able to get lots of big jobs done that … Continue reading One good day in the week can really recharge your batteries!

Today’s blog is literally rambled into the mic to text function on my phone as I was walking so it’s not entirely coherent (ha like the rest of my stuff is) So basically I just want to have a little word about the fact that I’m out on a walk, I’m recovering from an injury … Continue reading Trying to get back to a routine without comparing myself…

All … Continue reading Does losing weight equal being healthy?
It was a normal day just like any other lockdown day. I got up, did nothing for a while then proceeded to move to another room to do more nothing for a bit longer. I stood up from a chair and felt a twinge in my lower back on the left hand side. I knew … Continue reading Thinking about CBD for your bad back? Well here’s my take on it.
Wow what a start! In case you didn’t know I’ve gone and done my back in which means I can’t move much at the minute and when I say I can’t move much I mean I’m hobbling back and forth to the bathroom but that’s about it. For the first three days I was on … Continue reading Half a stone gone in my first week!
Happy Thursday... at least I think it’s Thursday. I have no concept of days anymore. this week has been a bit strange. I’m kind of stuck in bed still. I stayed in bed for two days originally and my back started to feel a bit better, then by last Monday I got out of bed … Continue reading What day is it?
So my first challenge in my new journey has already presented itself.
