Welcome to my year 3 diary!!!! :eek:

I can’t believe I have been maintaining now for 2 whole years! It’s a struggle at times, infact, probably 80% of the time and there’s not a day that goes by where I don’t think about what i’m putting in my mouth but somehow, despite being a few lbs up from where I originally finished TFR I have maintained that weight for 2 years now.

I love progress pics so here they are (me at my biggest, me on november 9th 2009 & me on november 9th 2011 .. sorry its a bit poserish :p)

I treated myself today to a new dress & shoes (if i’m not around later it’s because Stevie has killed me for taking money out of my ‘mortgage deposit savings’ :rotflmao: )

Running has been one of the main factors in helping me keep the weight off so this year 3 diary will be full of food, winging and running :)

I hope I can safely say my diary is one of a 'runner' ?!!! :hmm:

Ah, thanks guys! :)

Had a lovely sleep today but I woke up with a headache and a sore throat :( Didn't feel like going for a run but I did anyways. Felt alot better afterwards.

Run was a 3miler in 34:34 ... so back to average pace of 11:30p/mile. I really have no idea where my 10:27 pace came from during the 10k but i'm not complaining! Still ecstatic over it!

I'm giving myself 8-10 weeks to concentrate on losing some weight before starting 1/2 marathon training in January. Hopefully being lighter my time will be quicker - got to do it now as knowing from last time weight loss & half marathon training don't really match! lol

So runs will be 3x a week and i'm going to focus on 4 or 5milers for each run (next week will be just 2runs though as ive monday off so my weeks starts tuesday blah blah ..).

Last night in work tonight untill tuesday :D can't wait! Got a shift tomorrow and saturday then a nice couple of days with Stevie planned sunday and monday :)

Had a chunk of cheese before leaving the house!! and then a bite of Stevie's wispa gold when I got in work :sigh:

I'm just not in the mood for being 'good' right now :( but know if I'm not then I'm not going to be on the 11's by Christmas!

Aaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!! Sunday & Monday are going to be the last of the naughtiness then that's it I HAVE to knuckle back down! Please :whoopass: me if I don't!

Good luck if you decide to do the reindeer run Tanya, it will be a piece of cake for you and it's also a great charity to raise money for. Looked online about it and it looks like it would be a "fun" (if any running can be fun) event to take part in.

Omg Jan what have we turned into! :giggle: Shift went brill. Got another point marked off and so I've got 5left to get and I've been told "you will be out of your PDP by Christmas!" hehe

I've not had much to eat today but I don't feel like it so I'm going to go with it and not just eat for the sake of it.

I am on my second vodka & the 1/2 bottle of wine will be had in a bit though ...
