Attention everyone!!!!! I only blooming done it!!!!!! whooooooooooooooooooooopie!????

??hi everyone just thought I would share my news....yep I have finally graduated. Final run was completed less than an hour ago in my Beatles room on my treadmill whilst listening to easy e (does anyone know him?) anyway when I got on my bloody knee started to really hurt and I was almost limping but I thought to myself if those runners can do a marathon on Sunday with probably sore legs, hips, feet etc then I am sure I can do my final 30 mins and I did :) I feel so pleased with myself. when I read that I would be able to run for 30 mins 9 weeks ago I said to my partner "yeah right we will see" and me being a stubborn old ox set out to prove the pod casts and Laura wrong but I failed miserably because I completed every single run without a hitch (well apart from thinking I would die any second on every run). The point is it does work and it's agreat way to get pretty fit in such a short space of time and I would recommend it to anyone, infact I have inspired at least another three people to join the running gang so I must look fab ha ha! I set out on this mission to help me give up smoking and lose some weight, I have successfully been off the ciggys for three months now and I am about five lbs lighter and although I am still a size 16, I am a more comfortable size 16 and definatelu more curvy with most of my toning happening around the middle so I have a lovely hour glass figure now (a large hour glass but still), I feel more sexy and more confident and my energy levels are defiantly up so if anyone out there is thinking of starting or is struggling in the early weeks, then please please do keep going it is such a personal achievement to complete the challenge :) good luck all.

what's next for me?........feet up tonight, next run Wednesday :)
