November is Coming to a Close!

Where has this year gone, this is the last week of November already!! A week into the big Christmas countdown and I am happy to report I am down 1lb. Its a step in the right direction. I miscalculated last week and there were only 5 weeks until Christmas but that still leaves 4 more weigh ins and hopefully 4 more pounds lost!

Chicken Korma!


Indian food is one of my favourites, and it is espcially great in winter when it is so cold out! I find it the ultimate comfort food, rich and filling that gives you such a content feeling after eating it! Now a korma in an indian restaurant or takeaway is going to set you back around 24 propoints, which is fine for a once in a while treat using your weeklies its nice to have an alternative to have more often.

6 Weeks to Christmas!!

So now that the Morun is over its time to get focused for the next few weeks! My weight has crept back up to the top end of my safety zone and I am sitting at 10st 11.5lbs! I have 6 weeks until christmas and if I am really careful I could lose anywhere up to 7lbs in that time.

Well today was the big day!! I woke up really excited and ready to go, and after a hearty breakfast of porridge I was on the way. I met up with the rest of team 59 lbs to go in the Phoenix park and there was such a fantastic buzz about the place. The costumes some of the people wore were great too and people were just in great moods. As well as giving out fab headbands, they also had a face painter there drawing on stylish moustaches for those of us who can't grow our own!!

4 Days to Go!

Only 4 days to go! I am not feeling prepared but I am looking forward to it! There is still time to sign up and for anyone who will be near the Phoenix Park on Saturday morning feel free to come cheer us along!

As well as doing this 10k run as a personal and group challenge, I am also trying to do my bit to raise support and awareness for movember! I have a fundraising page and would be hugely grateful for any support you could give!

Dare I Say It.....43 Days Until Christmas!

I hate thinking about Christmas too early! There used to be a definite gap between Halloween and Christmas and some time in between where you didn't think about either. Now it seems like the second the Halloween decorations come down its officially the Christmas. I love halloween and usually make a big deal about it (as you can see from my costume this year!), but I find the older I am getting the faster time is going by. Its nearly halfway through November already so it really is time to start thinking about Christmas time and making a plan of attack on how to survive without piling on the pounds!!

Missing In Action!

Things have been a bit hectic of late so my apologies for the lack of updates!! With the late evenings coming in and a lot going on everywhere else it is so difficult to find the motivation to get out training. I have realised something this month, I have never ever been active outdoors in winter. Sure when I have been able to afford it, I went to the gym in winter but I never kept the running up. And it is HARD! Its so much more difficult to get your muscles warmed so they hurt that much more the following day.
