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
