The scales don't lie...

Today I weighed myself for the first time in a long time and I'm heavier than I thought I was. Damn diddly damn was my first thought. No way I can still tell myself I'm xkgs when now I know I'm actually x+afewkgs.

I guess this explains the too tight trousers, the squidgy tummy and the giant bottom. And the need to actually do something about it instead of sitting on the giant bottom and letting it get gianter.

J and I have been running a couple of times and we'll hopefully go again this weekend. So if we can do that once a week it'll be a good start. Plus I'm doing my first ever yoga course, a six-week Ashtanga course which after two weeks I'm really enjoying. So small progress, but a longer way to go than I at first thought!!!

So I leave you with this little pug. Because it is Friday after all :)

We have all had that horrible scale moment...stay motivated and keep at it...and remember muscle weighs more than fat (so i hear)

Have a fab weekend

Congratualtions on getting back on the horse. Enjoy the yoga, it's a real treat and you'll start seeing the developments sooner than you'd think. And you're right re: your comment at mine: cupcakes never taste better than when cooked at home! hope you had a lovely weekend. x LZ

I meant to say something about this post last night but we covered so much other stuff I never got to this.
Anyway - I was going to ask if there is a funrun coming up in the next couple of months that you can enter? That has really helped me keep motivated to keep running. I did 3 last year. I'm pretty sure Nike do a London one in June.
I have already planned to do 3 runs next year and maybe even treat myself to a personal trainer to get me back into it after the baby no 2 is born.
