    So yesterday it was a scorching 42 degrees here in perth - and stormy, so very humid and horrible. I couldnt go running, just walking home from the busstop had me glistening with sweat and trust me - im not a sweater!!
    Plus you just dont excersize in that kind of heat, its like a rule everyone knows. So I kept my cals down low (i think i had 1500) and im going to Bootcamp tonight. It should start cooling down this week so as long as I get my 5 days in im all good. I need a little boost RE: Paleo as well. Im still eating very healthy but i feel I need to get cleaner so ill be working on that this week. Little changes xx

    Enjoy the weather. It's 2 degrees here with some parts of England with snow and guess what more rain/snow on the way.
    At least we won't have hosepipe ban this year.
    65 days until Xmas.




    Summer 2015 starts on Sunday, 21st June 244 days to go.

    I think im going to use it deezer...ive got an app called "mynetdiary" - which is pretty similar.

    I need to get myself sorted this week. Im slipping. I feel the desire to do excersize but then can seem to whack on my trainers and go for it - like i have been doing.

    Im also going to clean up my diet again - get back to paleo roots. Been creeping in more grains & suagr than usual and swear that messes with my motivation and energy levels.

    I ran last night and I have to say - Once you start it just makes everything better. Im going again tonight (while OH cooks me a val day tea! hehe!) - im going to try and go every night this week and then have a break on monday.

    God, it just shows you - once you stop excersizing everything else falls down with it. (For me, anyway!)

    Morning all.

    Well this weekend was a bust in terms of eating - but great in terms of excersize. I made sure I got out and ran twice this week, went for 30 mins each time (C25K) - Im really glad I did because my diet was appalling. All I ate was ice cream, Paleo was none existant. I am 100% cutting out sugar this week - I need to cleanse it out of my system and then leave it there - I think ive finally realised that I cant just have a little bit and move on - im a full sugar addict.

    Hopefully I can clean up the diet this week and keep up the excersize. Im still losing weight though - my jeans are a lot looser which is great x

    Well done with the running, yes sugary stuff is so hard to cut out and then even a small amount makes you crave more.. Sigh!

    I bought some gluten free (triple chocolate) cookies (weak moment shopping) - I had 1/2. Was ok. But later in the day/ afternoon I just couldn't get them out of my head.. And mouth - lucky the packet was small and I "forced" others to help me finish them! Never buying again ! But biggest prob was the sugar low later... Ended up taking my glutamate tablets and eating macadamia nuts - as the theory goes craving sugar - is really fat. So helped but - dont need to go there again!

    I agree mis-behave. I think cutting it out is the way forward - just for now at least while I get on track!

    Hi All,

    So running is going great at the moment - just on week 4 of C25K and really can feel myself improving.

    I bought ministry of sound running trax 2013 after completing week 2, and bought myself a little water bottle/ipod holder for completeing week 3 - once i complete week 4 I am going to invest in some quality trainers.

    My eating habits havnt been the best - however I have started to clean it up today. Completly cutting out chocolate and obvious sources of sugar this week, then next week will try and get back into a proper paleo frame of mind. Its not hard once your there - in fact - its easy and enjoyable to eat fresh healthy foods, but its just getting the crap out of your system first.....

    Anyway this morning I had scrambled eggs on 100% spelt wholewheat rye with chia seeds. Lunch is black bean chilli made with all natural ingredients - snack was 6 small celery sticks with 2 tbls organic almond butter - and dinner will be chicken with noodles and veg.
    Im also running tonight.

    I think im going to set some goals on my signiture to keep me motivated too xx

    Well ive been neglecting this diary but I am still powering on. Still doing C25K - Once I force myself outside I really love it and the weight is coming off. Ive stopped weighing as it just throws me off track and makes me annoyed! I did the 3 days of pure protein this week to get rid of my sugar cravings - which worked, yippee. Im now just trying to remain as paleo as I can, and trying to fill my body with as much nutrients as I can. The only thing I havnt cut out is legumes, I know its not very paleo of me but I dont care - I think a veggie burger made with black beans and at least 6 veggies is healthier than a meat patty - thats just my opinion and i seem to be going well so far.

    The other night I had a huge fight with my OH - we dont fight a lot but when we do it can get quite heated. Anyway in the 6 years we have been together I would probably say ive gained about a stone, maybe 1.5 - which over 6 years, isnt too bad - and he always telling me he loves my body etc etc - anyway...in the middle of this huge bust up he let slip "fat b*tch" - which is so out of character for him and totally winded me. I must have looked like a kicked puppy because he suddenly panicked and tried to back track. I had to pretend I was over it, we made friends and stuff but it really really upset me. Hes not a bad man, he was just angry and said the first thing he could think of - the reason im angry and upset is because to me i HAVE let myself get a bit fat and it hit a nerve because in some ways, it was true.

    So I silently made a vow to myself that im getting rid of this last stone/stone and a bit - for GOOD. I see incredible people losing 6,7,8 stone and i only have ONE to lose - so im going to just ditch it. After we made friends I went for my run and really pushed myself - eating well today - and tonight we are going out for drinks but you know what - im not drinking. Im going to have diet lemonade and enjoy my night.

    Have a fab weekend all xxxxxx

    On saturday I will be launching my new business, after months of hard work and some procrastinating!

    I am still running (thank gawd) - my weight is just staying the same - because im back on the sugar. Im so angry at myself (but trying to let that feeling go)

    Will be re-starting a sugar -detox plan on sat, so hopefully that will kick me into goal.

    Hi Laura, I just read through and wanted to say well done on your losses so far and your determination. I like the principles of paleo but couldn't follow it to a T. I tried cutting out sugar several times and just kept failing and then hitting it soooo hard, for me, I've found moderation is better so I have those small portion chocolates like 150 cal a pop or a small individual icecream 150-180 or so. Can't trust myself near a tub!!! But I find this works better for me and makes me more normal around sugar, especially if I know that I am craving I will have some fruit at that time but know that in the evening I can have my little treat.

    How far are you with c25k? I am trying to get myself into the habit of doing a quick run first thing but although I love it once I am out in the fresh air, actually getting myself out of bed 45 min early is proving almost impossible!!!!!!!
