I ran my first ever 5k on 12th April and sadly it's been downhill from there!
I've been poorly, toiled through two job interviews (one when I was ill again) and I've had a huge bout of "can't be bothered" syndrome. After two job rejections (now six since January) and finding work to be hard going, I've fallen into a pit of lazy despair.
But today I've been truly inspired by an old work colleague and her holiday photos - thank you Facebook! Kate left us around three years ago and I'm not being rude but she was a big girl with a lot "up top". Since leaving us, she's joined Weight Watchers, got a boyfriend and moved out of her parents house. I've seen a lot of her photos over the months and years and she's gotten steadily smaller and smaller and smaller.
Then today I saw a new photo and I've got to say that she's practically unrecognizable - she's a teeny, tiny picture of health and happiness. And I'm so pleased for her, because as a former "big girl" myself, I can relate to all the downfalls of being overweight. Therefore I have made a promise to myself that I will get up in the morning for a run, I will do my kettlebell workout on rest days and I will stop eating tons of rubbish.
There! I've said it and I shall do it (because part of me is a wee bit jealous in all honesty!)
