I did walking half marathon complete!

VERY tired and achey but a fab experience and I am well chuffed with us all.

I went Roller skating for my son's 13th birthday!

I was really nervous about going as I am really clumsy and can fall over without any help at the best of times. It was actually really good fun and by the end of the 2 hours I was going round without clinging on for dear life! Even though I wasnt going fast I got quite sweaty and my legs ache this morning so I had a nice little workout without realising it! I wonder how many points that would earn?

I am even considering taking the kids once a month.......

Hopefully the achey legs will go before tomorrow!

My son had a great birthday, I can't believe I am actually Mum to a teenager! EEEEK!

3 more days.........

until my walking half marathon!!! IT has come round sooooo fast!

I am really excited and nervous about it all. We got our packs through with our Shine t-shirts, number, bag labels and various other items. It says that on the night we will all be given an illuminated balloon to take round with us which I think will make it all look amazing.

I am not worried about walking the 13.2 miles as I have been exercising like a demon these last 8 weeks. This week I am not going to do any exercise so my body is fully rested and ready for Saturday night.

WW wise I am going to concentrate on having a mix up with my meals making that more my focus instead of the training. Who knows, it may shift some weight giving my body a break......... that would be a lovely bonus if I show a loss on the scales next week. I am feeling unbelievably fit these days so even though I have only lost 1.5lbs while doing this training I have never felt better.

I am going to keep up the exercise after the marathon as I find I actually miss it when I don't do some.

My sis and I have been thinking of what to train for next year and we are looking at maybe doing a 26 mile bike ride and/or some sort of sponsored this space! lol

For those of you that are just starting out on more exercise why not get your name down for next year and make that a goal?

Wish me luck, I will put pics on and let you know how it all went.


PS. I think there is still time if you wish to sponsor me, just click on the link at the top of my blog. Thanks. :0)

Little woohoo.......

cos I lost half a pound this week, so that is 1.5lbs in 7 weeks........not a great average but I am the healthiest I have ever been......every cloud.....:0)

Easter was not a problem at all for me because I had time off with my kids and they love going out on their bikes so that is what we did, lucky me, I am proud to say that I have instilled in my kids about having a healthy lifestyle and enjoying it.

Happy me.
