As I sit here about to type this post, I’m struggling to know where to begin. There has been little that hasn’t happned since my last proper blog post.
So I thought I would have a brief check-in and catch up with you all. Whats been happening my end I hear you ask? Well:
- I managed to run a half marathon. Those of you who have followed me since day one will know that this is a big achievment for me as somebody who does not like running.
- I finished my degree and moved back home. Uni degree passed and I have been working as a qualified professional for nearly three years now.
- Split up with girlfriend. Unfortunately some things are not meant to last.
- Went to Peru and walked the Inca Trail. Absolute holiday of a lifetime. I will make a post about this later.
- Met someone else. Yes I do believe in love after love.
- Broke ankle. Long story short… Ireland+alcohol+bingo+disco= broken ankle.
- No running for over a year. The broken ankle along with mega chest infections have hindered me from my running and to be honest I have been making every excuse since then to carry on not running.
- Moved up north and in with gf. Change of scenery and job. Loving the house, my partner and our little kitten.
- Become a carbosaurus. My gf eats pretty much everything carby and not much else and I have taken to the habbit as it eases making meals etc.
All this said, I am officially back at square 1. In fact, I am most likely heavier and misfigured than I was when I started the blog. I will post a picture of my current state in a later post (not looking forward to that). Hopefully this will spur me on, along with writing these blog posts again. I know that something has to change, again. Knowing the amount of effort needed last time, I am not looking forward to this.
Anyone else starting out on their weight loss/healthier living…good luck! Leave a comment with your blog and I’ll make sure to follow for inspo.
