Let’s get back to the point!

And the point of this blog existing in the first place is for me to ramble on about my weight loss/maintenance & my physical fitness pursuits!   So, let’s get back to it, shall we?   2 years ago, on March 22nd, 2009 I did something that just months earlier I had though that I would never do. I ran my first Half Marathon. I still remember that day like it was yesterday. That was the biggest thing I had done in my life so far. I had been inactive for so long, and had only taken up running 17 […]

Favourite Things – March 11th

On March 1st I challenged the people who read this blog to tweet their favourite thing about the day, every day in March.

If it all ended today…

With all the natural disasters that have been happening around the world recently, it is hard not to reflect of the fragility of life.   I sit here wondering, if it all ended today, did I lead a good life? Did I do the best I could? I know for certain that I am far from perfect, and that I have made mistakes along the way. I know that I have wronged people and hurt people. But what I truly wonder is; does the good I have done outweigh the bad? does the positive outweigh the negative?   In the […]

Sometimes you just have to let it out.

I must have deleted the starting line to this blog post 5 times by now, I don’t know where start. This is going to be an oddly personal post for me. It’s not about Weight Watchers, or running. It’s about me.   Can you remember the last time a friend called you, to make plans? or just say hi? or ask ‘what’s new?”?   I can’t.   Honestly, I can not remember the last time my phone rang.  I can’t remember the last time someone asked me to lunch, or to coffee, or out for drinks. I’m a social person, […]
