Fitting right ? Well I think so! I was killing some time in Waterstones in the Self Help section and this book screamed out to me. I don’t need to buy it, the title says enough, and this photo has found it self permanently stuck to my phone. It helps. It makes me smile, it reminds me of my focus and my aim and that’s a positive.
Today is Sunday, 40 weeks exactly until I take part in the half marathon and the day I had planned to start my healthier lifestyle and get back in to training. As I mentioned Christmas has a lot to answer for right now, I maintained my weight last year without too much effort and focus.

My binge partner in crime was late home, Chinese had closed and he thinks he did the right thing by bringing me left over Carribean food his nan had cooked! Curried goat is NOT chicken balls!!! He learnt the hard way… 😉
Today I have felt tired, but I refrained from using caffeine and sugar to keep me going. I will sleep well tonight, if restless legs allow and be ready for the first run in the morning..
