Inspired by Lucy


I've been neglecting my Skinny blog, but I've been inspired by Diminishing Lucy to get back on track to being Diminishing Maxabella. Being a bit more "public" with my blog will help I'm sure!

Last week I ran 800m down to the Blackmores Running Festival tent to pick up my sister's bib for her sterling efforts in the 9km fun run. Does that count? I got a blister for my efforts, so I felt like I was really a part of things. I'm trying to get back to running a couple of times a week. I go at eleven a.m. with my colleague Sean, who's a super-fit personal trainer in his spare time. I have to keep the jokes flowing and the conversation gossipy as we run otherwise he'll get bored and race off ahead of me. At least I know I'm not overdoing it if I can run and puff, sort, puff, of, puff talk at the same time.

I've been losing about 200g a week for three weeks now. I think that's fine. As long as the number goes down instead of up, I'm a happy lady. I do plan to step it up a bit more this week as I'm trying my best to stay on track with Good Golly Miss Holly's Plan, I've allowed myself 2000 kilojoules a day though. I have to be realistic. You can't walk from France to Africa overnight* and it's going to take me over a year to lose all the weight that needs to go.



* Was this an offensive statement? I meant more along the lines of 'rich buttery French cuisine' and 'lean, low-fat African fare'...

How much weight can you shrug with laughing?
I'm sure you're helping me diminish my kg's with laughter therapy every time you post.

Loving that you've snaffled a PT from within the ranks of colleagues and that you're jogging in your break = very committed.

Really wished you hadn't mentioned French food though....

I haven't been a runner for years. Hopefully I can work my back to being one.

Good Luck!

Oh please write more on this blog! :-)
Just remember, little steps. There are 52 weeks in a year, so break it down a little. You'll lose a little bit each week, and before you know it it'll be a lot! Well done. Blogging here will help you I'm sure. I'm going to start running to Skinny Street!! See you there. xx
