I don't know about you but this time of year tends to come with a feeling of guilt, sometimes motivation and usually realisation.

For me I'm particularly feeling the latter. Motivation and guilt not so much, but realisation yes.

I'm 25, heavier, unfit and stuck in a rut of bad eating habits.

I blame my job with the hours and commute and general lifestyle. Fluttering from one place to the next and often just going home to sleep.

So I've decided even though it's always dark and later than I'd like when I get home - I'm going to make time to run as often as possible to get fitter. It's not a new year resolution but it is a step in the right direction to a healthier lifestyle.

So last night I went on my first run in a long time. I ran for 2 minutes and then walked for 2 repeatedly for just over half an hour. Now I can run for around 25 minutes straight at a steady pace, but I'm focussing on looking after my body by preventing injuries and building up to this time and working towards a distance, because although I can run for that long it leaves me so sore afterwards I end up unable to do anything for a week after and then I GIVE UP.

Not this time! I'm a little sore today but not too bad. So I'm going to continue with this routine throughout the week and then move up to 3 mins, 4 mins etc until I'm running properly.

So I will also now be writing about my fitness journey and how it's going as often as possible to give you an idea as to how it is going.


  1. I started running after i had my baby in july to help loose the baby weight but stopped as the nights became darker. I cant run during the day as there's no one to look after the children. I miss it, i loved the feeling of achievement when you run for longer/ further. I used to take my dogs :-)
