So, 2 of the things on my bucket list are to do with running…..1 to RUN the Race For Life, which I am planning on doing and the other is to RUN the Great South Run.
Now if any of you really know me, you will know that whilst I enjoy the gym and working out but I am NOT a runner….
I definitely want to do the Race for Life and I definitely want to run it, its 5k which is 3.1 miles, I figured I could do that – granted it wont be very fast and my finish time wont be like 20minutes – but I will run it and I will finish it! The Great South Run is 10miles, now there is no way on this earth I can run 10 miles – jeez I don’t even think I could walk 10 miles!
The one thing that I am sure you will know by now is that I am on a constant strive to lose weight and keep it off. I am not in a battle to be a certain weight, I used to be – but being a certain weight doesn’t mean anything. You can be 13st and a size 12, it all depends on YOUR figure. This is why I really don’t think people should constantly compare themselves to people in the public eye. Don’t get me wrong I would LOVE to have a figure like Khloe Kardashian – she looks fantastic, however, she has a spare 2-3 hours a day to work out and keep fit and she HAS to for her job. Luckily I don’t! So my aim this time round is to fit into a size 12 in the majority of stores, which again isn’t easy! Each store measures you different, I can be a 14 in one store and a 20 in another – how does that work and how is any woman mean to know what size she is!
This isn’t a decision I have come to suddenly, I have been thinking about it for sometime, but Number 10 Run The Great South Run is being removed. It is being replaced with:
Reach Size 12 and Stay There
This is something I CAN do – I have been a size 12 before and I WILL do it again – I now have a gym buddy in the form of my brother and this will mean that I have no excuse not to go and stay for at least 1hr. In September he goes to college to do sport and is going to be learning stuff to do with personal training so he can whoop my butt into shape! The aim of the game is to reach size 12 before the Grand National in April, if this isn’t possible then I definitely want to hit it before I go to Indiana & NYC in June.
This is me now – size 14 and some stores 16
This is me now – trying to get into my size 12 work trousers
Sticking to Slimming World and Working Out 3-4 times a week I WILL get my butt back into those size 12 work trousers!
I CAN do this and I WILL do this!
