Well it's been a while since I've blogged but I am still alive, still exercising still trying to lose pounds and be happy with my body and level of fitness. Back in the autumn I ran two half marathons, which were a lot of fun and in the 2 hours 20 min range, I have another one coming up in about 4 weeks, and although I am not at my fittest I will run it to the best of my ability and enjoy myself.

Failed to get a place on the London Marathon this year, but that's cool, going to concentrate on half marathons and weight training for the time being. (That's a lie I was very disappointed, but I'm over it now,bastards, sorry did I really say that?)

Life is good, making some very positive changes,  feeling very positive about life even though I have a lot of work to do, I AM GRATEFUL, is my new mantra.

Running wise I am trying to get back in the swing of things after a couple of months, of stop, start, stop start, this year I have promised myself that I will try and be consistent, to be honest exercise is not my major problem, food is, so I have come to the conclusion that if I never learn to eat healthily I will always yo-yo diet and struggle with weight!

So I am trying really hard to make some good forever changes in my diet, e.g making water my main source of fluid, more fruit, brown bread,brown rice, wholewheat pasta and veg. These are all admirable changes and I will try my best, I know I am not the kind of girl who can live on lettuce alone, so I am going to try and cook more, turn my back on the junk and processed food, or at least limit it.

My partner had a health scare last year so we are both eager to get on the right track and make healthy eating and exercise a permanent part of our every day life and not just for special occasions.

That's me for now, been stalking a few blogs, tyring to see what everyone else has been up to,
feels good to be back, and seriously committing to my health again.



  1. Hey Laura,
    thanks for passing by,
    much appreciated.

  2. Glad you're back & all is OK.

    Bummed about slot in the London Marathon though... didn't they get the memo about how awesome you are?

  3. Hey, hey no they didn't get that memo, but that's cool, the only think that is a bummer is that with nothing massive to work towards, the running has become less and the pounds have become more,but the Kat is back and I running my way back to fitness again. Been fun catching up with your blog.

  4. Welcome back. Sorry about the London Marathon - their loss.

    Looking forward to catching up.
