Weight 13st 5lb. 1lb lost – 5lb to goal weight

Diet Good πŸ™‚ Found a breakfast muesli with a higher protein content and have started taking mixed nuts for work as a snack. Humus wraps are still working well mixed in with peanut butter sandwiches for variety. Now that autumn is upon us I have broken out the stews (recipes to follow) which I am packing out with lentils and buckwheat and serving with lots of green veg. Not sure what else I could do? Ideas welcome πŸ™‚

Fitness Improving rapidly. Up to 14 miles for my long run and it looks like I will be able to try for the Beachy head Marathon after all! I have been to CoreAbility again which rocked and need to make sure I get there once a week. I currently have a stinking cold which I am hoping clears up soon. Now that I am settled back into work I will try to build in spin sessions and now my back seems mended I should be able to start on kettlebells and weights.

Goals Beachy head Marathon on 27th October. is the big one πŸ™‚ Saturday 16mile trail run then the week after 20 miles. There are going to be some knackered looking dogs come winter. Weights and spin sessions a couple of times a week after this weekend.

How are your fitness goals going? What would you suggest I do in my battle to become not just ultrafit but herbifit?

  1. I think knackered is my new favorite word πŸ™‚ You’re doing great with the weight loss and the running. Can’t wait for the updates on your training and your race.

    • Thanks πŸ™‚ It feels great to be able run again. Enjoy using ‘Knackered’. I am also hoping that ‘Rougher than a badger’s nadger’ crosses the pond. As in, “I have a filthy cold and feel rougher than a badger’s nadger” πŸ˜‰

      • Laughing my head off. Bless your heart.

        Here’s what my naturopath says to do for a cold. 1 t. colloidal silver 3 times daily, 10,000mg (yes, that’s right) of vitamin C daily, 2 echinacea tablets 3 times daily. Hot soups, herbal teas and all the other goodness should help. But when I follow the above directions I can usually kick a cold within 3 days.
