Trying to get on track!

For the last 4 months, longer really, I have been struggling. I have put on tons of weight and an ankle problem has been stopping me running, or at least giving me an excuse to stop running. It started swelling when I was training for a half marathon, which I did manage to complete but now

I feel fat, old and unfit.

I know exercise is the key to getting physically and mentally back on track, so I am back here to read all your posts and get inspired again! I felt so good when I was slimmer and fitter.

I managed a 30 min run this morning, now I just need to eat little and healthy.

I need a challenge I think because that always motivates me. Ideas?? Anyone up for it???xxxx

Well done you and thanks for the reply! No slimming clubs here as I live in rural France, but no garages with rows of chocolate either which helps!! I just need to get my head in the right place, day 3 and I haven't given up yet!! Thanks for your support xx

Well done on getting back out there any injury can put you back physically and mentally, I know from experience.

You are back on the horse so to speak set your self small goals to start and reward yourself when you achieve them :)
