I've Fallen Of The Wagon - BIG TIME!!!

Firstly I apologise for my lack of blogging during my detox in Thailand - but in summary it was the best money I have ever invested in anything.  I would highly recommend it to anyone considering a reboot or a change of lifestyle.

I had the best time, met some amazing people - all there for different reasons, made some great steps forward to making a new life for me, and mentally it was great for me also - I was able to concentrate just on ME - what more can I say it was amazing.  So if you get the chance please go - I will be returning for sure.

BUT and this is a big BUT!!!!  I have fallen off the wagon big time.  I am eating all those bad things that I used to eat and I feel like a blimp - I don't think I look like one yet but I certainly feel like it.  I have put on about 4 of those 16 kgs that I lost - so I guess that it not all that bad.



There have been some amazing things happen in my life since I last blogged.   I have a new job which I love, I have moved into my own place which is fantastic - first time I have lived alone for a long long time.  And since my marriage break up I have made some amazing steps forward as far as my mental health is concerned and I have entered the realm of internet dating!!!!! This needs a blog entry of its own believe me!!!!

I am happier than I have ever been - but the sugar and fat have sneaked back into my diet which I am not proud of - this is how bad it is - I ate a PIE for my lunch yesterday.

So I am back to my blogging to make myself yet again accountable for what I put into my body.  So I need your support and lovely comments again to keep me on the right path.

My mission today is before I leave work I will have joined the gym - I have set myself a goal - get this......I want to run the Gold Coast Marathon next year.  I have 12 months to train for it and believe me I need it.  For anyone who knows me, I have hated exercise all my life and have done anything to get out of it - so this will be a huge thing for me if I accomplish it - but there will be no IFS and BUTS - I WILL DO IT!!!!

Until next time.

Today I'm linking up with Grace from "With Some Grace"


  1. Good on you girl! I hope you make your goals. I met my hubby on the Internet so there are some good ones out there!

    1. Thanks - good to know there are some good ones out there..

  2. I actually enjoyed internet dating. I met a lovely dude and had a nice relationship. It wasn't meant to be, but I know plenty of people who met 'The One'.
    Don't be too hard on yourself. Life goes up and down, as does our weight. Just do what you need to do to feel good about yourself.

    1. I'm having fun internet dating for sure - and have made a cple of really great friends out of it which is great.

  3. Good on you , I just started running in last year and I love it. I want to run a half marathon by December.
    If you are on Facebook there is a lovely group of us (some bloggers some not) called Operation Move with Kate Says Stuff. A few of them are training for marathons and half.

  4. Great thanks Trish - I will join the group. I'm thinking of starting with the couch to 5k program...
