New girl on the block

I initially put up a post about struggling with bingeing and got some wonderful replies :) I've since been having a wee looksee around the site itself and have noticed the "introduce yourself" area. So here I am introducing myself.

I'm a mum of 3 (7yrs, 5yrs and 3yrs) I work part time (3 long days) in a sedentary job. I started the C25k again and I think I am on week 3 though possible 4 next week, but I haven't been able to attend all sessions due to childcare. I find it touch but I really enjoy it..............well when I say that I mean the feeling I get afterwards, during it I would like to be anywhere else possible.

I am looking into creating a group to follow on from the 9 weeks so that maybe this time will be the time when I can manage to continue running 3 times a week and not just return immediately to my couch potato ways (I have done the programme once on my own and then twice with my local council) I have an active partner who is in great I've no one to blame but myself and my distinct lack of willpower or ability to say no to my wants.

Maybe a long introduction but I ramble when I am nervous.

Goodnight, and so to bed.

Hi RobynMarian, and welcome to the forum. I'm a struggling mummy too (I have 3 year old twins), so can understand how hard it is to focus on yourself when you have so much else to juggle.

The good news is, you have landed in a group of amazing and supportive people here. You don't have to do this alone.

Really look forward to seeing you about, join in the challenges, they're so fun and a great way to stay motivated.

All the best

Bluewings 😉
