It has been so long since last post. I did the city surf on Sunday and ran it in 1 hour and four minutes. I was really hoping for under an hour but with my injury and lack of training was pretty happy. My brother did it in 51 minutes and my dad did it in 60 minutes. The hills killed me. It felt so good to be running again and leg now is fairly symptom free. I pulled up so sore in the calves and quads but it was the good type of sore.

I have had so many birthdayslately and my bf is in two weeks. I bought him some rugby memrobilia and sending balloons to his work to embarass him.

Food wise I have been doing ok. Last week I slipped a little bit and put on 300gm so this week i am all determined again. So all in all for four weeks I have lost 3.3kg. I want to try and lose as much as possible before boyfriends birthday so i'm being really strict on myself. It has really helped me to set mini goals. It makes everything more manageable. Exercise has been great too and strating to feel the difference. Two people have also commented which is fab!!

Work is so busy at the moment. I am still doing extra work for a lady who is overseas and my boss is on hols so some days have worked 10-12 hour days. I don't like it and can't wait for my normal routine.

I promise I won't leave it so long and have still been reading other posts.

I've had a loss......

of weight that is! I have lost another 1.5kg this week. This means I have dropped 3 kg in 2 weeks. I am so happy with myself and have been sticking to plan. I have overcome temptations at my girlfriends 21st and the other night I was at my boyfriends for dinner and she had made chocolate mousse but I politely said no thanks. She kept trying but I kept declining. I am starting to feel really good about myself again. Exercise has also been going well. I have only done a few light runs but my leg has been holding up. I am planning to run to BF house on saturday (around 9km) and then just do another one or two light runs before my 12km race next weekend. I really don't want to over do it and not run it. I know I wont run a great time but I am happy to be running at all!!

I will have another testing weekend with food. I have another birthday and a christening but I am determined to stay on track. When you start seeing results I feel i am in more control of everything. I have also been super organised with food as work has been flat chat. Mum has had surgery today and wont be able to lift anything for a least 6 weeks, so i'll have to be helping a lot more at home. So i'll be extra busy.

Thats all I have to report so far this week.

Take care,

I can't believe it has been that long.

Hi all. I can't believe I have left writing a blog for so long. So much has happened since I last wrote. I have started a challenge and I lost 1.5kg in the first week. I am feeling great!! I also have entered the Perth city to surf on the 27th August. It is a 12km run. I have however recondsidered my half marathon at the beginning of September due to my injury but am looking to do one in the near future. On that note my leg is still improving but am taking it as it comes. I have not been running really long distances and would rather wait till i'm at my peak to run in a half marathon. I have started to take on some more work and even though my week was full as, the extra money is going straight into my holiday fund. We are booking our round the world tickets in a few weeks and we all got together to discuss accomadation for a few of destinations and organise our contiki tour. I am getting so excited!! I know we leave in march but it it is getting closer. So this new challenge is to get my hot body to go away to Spring break in Acapuco and Miami and enjoy summer in the caribeen (cricket world cup). I want to wear all my bikinis and feel good about myself. I am really motivated at the moment.

Hope everyone else is going well. I have still been reading blogs and sorry for lack of replying to them.

Love amy
