Grad day

Well I’m about to go for my last run of the programme! Hoping it’s as good a run as Monday 😊 Sacrificing the gym tonight for the football. Nice day planned with my daughter as she has her dress fitting for her September wedding. Just tried mine on again and it just fits where it touches 😫 Have to do something as I’m putting on weight without even trying yet overall my shape looks different. Think I’m going to try the 7 min workout as well as the running as it’s worked for me before. Following SlimmingWorld for eating as I generally do so no particular changes in the eating. Quite frustrating when you’re working hard on the exercise! I blame the menopause and HRT. Got 8 weeks to lose around an inch/half a stone. Pleased to be graduating but feeling grumpy and I still haven’t heard if I’ve got this job that I want and need. Argh! May everyone’s runs be wonderful. Namaste

I hope the run calms some of the storms blowing through your mind. Looking forward to cheering you on to the podium.

Hope today went well, and I too have a wedding in September and making slow progress with SW, I think the secret is to go speed. Trouble is, for me, too many distractions...ie summer evenings, g&t, magnums......

But tried on my dress and same as you, need to loose half a stone.

I graduated today and am determined to keep this up, as much as anything to help improve health, especially heart and Lung functions.

Enjoy the wedding and fingers crossed for the job.

We will be visiting Chippenham for best friends daughters wedding on the 1st, last year on same weekend our daughter was married so know just how you feel. Had mother of bride outfit for ceremony and then changed for reception which was a village fete theme, so out came wedges and floaty number lol

Running does take the stress out of many people, I am just wondering why you are sacrificing the gym for the football this evening!? O yes, there is a certain England game on, best of luck to them from a Scot.
