Just something random that happened….

Howdy there everyone,

Hope your all well. I have been ok. I went to the doctors a couple of weeks ago in regards to my foot (it had been in so much pain that when i walked it would hurt and I could barely move) and apparently there is 2 things wrong….

  1. I have a 4mm spur at the heel of my foot and it’s irritating one of the tendon things in my arch and that’s what was causing the pain in my foot.
  2. I am vitamin D deficient (that I had kind of guessed)

So now I have to take Vitamin D tablets to counteract the deficiency and my foot wise, i didn’t quite understand what he said but I have been walking alot more and therefore it hasn’t hurt quite so bad which is awesome Smile 

But that’s only one thing that has happened recently.

On Sunday I went out to lunch with some of my family and I put some jeans on that I have avoided wearing and mum turned around and said that I looked alot better then what I have been and that with my increased walking I’m looking alot trimmer (I don’t see it but hey) and then I went to lunch and my Aunty said exactly the same thing! I couldn’t believe it! I haven’t exercised in a week and this is what they said! WTH! I think maybe a slight change in my attitude has also helped and less takeaways which is awesome Smile I need to get back to exercising because I feel weird not doing it and I feel sluggish and horrible so at this point in time I’m just remaking my music playlist and uploading it so I can take the puppy out for a walk. Let’s see how that goes Smile 

Anyways, have fun and take cares and I will catch up with you all later.

My favourite Walking Songs :)

Howdy there everyone,

Thought I’d share with you some of the songs on my phone which make me want to push myself just that tiny bit more…..

  • WWE NXT: Anything (Bo Dallas)
  • Get Me The GI Joes- GI Joe:Retaliation Soundtrack
  • Fighter (Glee Cast Version)- Darren Criss
  • Pourqoui? (Maryse)-WWE
  • Next Big Thing (Brock Lesnar)-WWE
  • Blurred Lines (feat. TI and Pharrell)-Robin Thicke
  • When I Grow Up-Pussycat Dolls
  • Honor Restored-GI Joe: Retaliation Soundtrack
  • Firefly-GI Joe: Retaliation Soundtrack
  • Medal (Kurt Angle)-WWE
  • I’m Coming (MVP)-WWE
  • Work B**ch-Britney Spears

These are my go-to songs when i need some motivation when I’m walking to make me push myself that much more. I am a wrestling fan and yeah, there are some wrestling theme songs there but wrestlers, when I see them do what they do and I hear some of their songs, actually make me want to be that more healthy and exercise alot more.
The GI JOE: RETALIATION soundtrack is pure awesomeness! I like the movie and when I got the soundtrack I found that the music made me want to go to a gym and work out and now when I’m out walking I can put that on and it makes me want to be in a special forces person lol.

And my personal fave is Fighter by Darren Criss! It just makes me want to defeat my demons and push myself to the absolute limit that I can take myself. All the bullying I have had throughout my life comes to fruition in that one song and makes me want to work as hard as I can to overcome what I need to Smile

So there you have it. Those are some of my songs from my Walking playlist. If you can recommend anymore, please feel free to let me know via the comments section.

Have fun….

Update #3

Howdy there guys and gals,

Hope you are all well. I know this is is a bit late but I’ve had some issues going on this week that took a tiny bit more priority. But no matter, here is Week 3’s update on weight and measurements……

  • Weight: 82kg 😦
  • Age: 26 yrs 3mon
  • Height: 1.66m
  • Chest: 41 inches
  • Waist: 37inches
  • Hips 42 inches
  • Body Fat %: 34%

Not happy but this is what I get for not doing my best exercise or healthy wise. I’m slowly getting back on track and as of today I have started to incorporate some running/jogging into my walks as well cause I can walk far while getting relatively puffed but I want to make it harder on myself and challenge myself some more so this seems as good as time as any.

And also this week I have been dealing with a sore foot which hasn’t helped matters. I went to the doctors and he sent me for blood test and also for xrays and so we shall see on Tuesday what he says. He thinks I’m deficient in Vitamin D so we shall see what the bloods come back with and my foot seems to be getting better so we’ll see….

Anyway, just thought I’d put that out there so you can see. Any suggestions on how to stay motivated would be greatly appreciated so feel free to put a comment in the below section and I will hopefully get back to you next week on how this goes 🙂
Have fun everyone 🙂

Records broken today

Howdy there everyone,

As I mentioned earlier (technically yesterday…) I have made it my no. 1 mission to get back on the healthy bandwagon and I started by helping my bf take his 2 dogs for a half hour walk Monday and yesterday. And also yesterday, and this is where the records come in, I went to Don Reserve and I RAN! When I say ran I mean jogged/walked but I made it all the way which is awesome! I don’t normally do that sort of thing so it’s awesome to me and it makes me want to improve on that.

Here are the records that I broke….

  1. What should be a 40-45 minute walk turned into a 27.49 minute walk/jog! So very proud as I have never done that before Smile
  2. My best time over 1km is now 8.01min/km which is awesome for me Smile

So you can see why I’m happy now. And I do feel better for doing it and it makes me want to do better so we shall see how that resolve goes.

I’ll let you know tomorrow.

 

Oh, I may not be happy tomorrow either. I have to go to nissan to get my mirrors replaced so goodness knows how I’ll be……

Anyway, have fun and take care Smile
Lil xoxo

Update #2

Howdy there everyone,

I know tomorrow is weigh in number three and I am also very aware that I missed last weeks weigh in but truth be told, I was very disappointed with my results and it showed. I did weigh myself but I didn’t do body measurements (I better make sure I do them tomorrow otherwise I will be extremely down on myself.
Here is last weeks weigh in….

  • Weight: 82kg
  • Age: 26 years 3 months
  • Height: 1.66 metres
  • As I said, I am disappointed in myself. I haven’t been exercising as much which has annoyed me. Mind you, I also had mother nature calling so-to-speak so that really didn’t help matters but. But I have made the resolve that this week is going to be better. It already has been so far so you will just have to wait and see tomorrow.

    Until then, have fun and take care and I will write later Smile

    Update is here! :)

    Hi there everyone,

    Here is the update that I promised you all last week Smile

    Week 1 Update on this new adventure….

    So I should put my ‘stats’ here as well I suppose…..

    Starting weight and measurements=

    • Weight:82.5 kg
    • Age: 26 years 2 months
    • Height: 1.66 metres
    • Chest: 41.5 inches
    • Waist: 37.5 inches
    • Hips: 42 inches
    • Body Fat %: 35.4%

    Week 1 Update=

    • Weight: 81.5kg

    Honestly, I know it’s not alot but it feels awesome to see at least some form of loss in a week. Time to keep it going and to see what I can get done in another week.

    Oh and I also forgot to mention in the video that I also have a diary of my weight loss journey which I mention what exercises I’ve done and my walks and stuff like that. Very much recommended Smile

    Anyway, that is all from me for now. Have fun and take care.

    Little bit of an update…

    Howdy there folks,

    Well, hello there! Oh dear how I had forgotten all about this blog. Oops. A few things have been pre-occupying my time and since I have some spare time before work I thought that I would update you all from here….

    On the 26th of June last year I started dating this guy. He’s one of my co-workers and while sometimes that may be a bad thing, in this case, no it’s not Smile We have been together for nearly 11 months and I can honestly say that this guy makes me the happiest guy in the whole world. He’s made me happy during a time when I didn’t think that I would ever be this happy and I love him with every bone in my body. I want to spend every moment with him (and no, he’s not with me at this point in time so he can’t see what I’m writing) but he just lights up my world. Smile I don’t know what else to say from there….

    On the flip side, my younger brother and his fiancée broke it off. I didn’t mention it at all on this blog but for the last 2 years my brother had been dating this girl and in fact my brother actually moved in with her at her parents house after something that had happened at home (which I can’t talk about). Anyway, Christmas came around and my brother decided to pop the question to this girl and we were all like “OK then”. In January they had their engagement party and something just didn’t seem right between the 2. And then soon after that, my brother came round, spoke to mum and it was decided that he could move back in. Which honestly I am super happy about it because I did miss him when he wasn’t here and it just seems better now that he’s here Smile And the girl, goodness knows what she’s up to although from the contact that I’ve had with her since, it wasn’t the break up that I thought it was and it is something that I don’t need to know about either. Which suits me just fine because that’s their lives and not mine.

    What else is news….

    Last night I alluded to something that I was working on in a post ‘This new adventure….’ and I can tell you, it is health related and I’m hoping that it goes as well as I think it will. I just need to be 100% committed to it to get what I want out of it Smile 

    I think that’s all that I had to catch you all up on for the moment. As I said last night, I will be in touch next week regarding my new project so stay tuned Smile

    I better start getting ready for work now. Have fun and take care and hopefully you will hear from me soon.

    Lil xoxo

    This new adventure….

    Howdy there everyone,

    WOW! I didn’t realize how long I’d been away from this until just now. And even now this is just a quick note to say that I’m working on something to do with myself and I just started today so I’m going to hopefully write here again next week and update you all with the progress. Let’s see if I can stick with this thing this time Winking smile
    Anyway, that is all from me for now.
    Nighty night.

    Lil xoxo

    Happy Happy Lil :)

    Howdy there everyone,

    I know I have been away for quite some time but there have been some things that have happened that have kind of dragged me away. One of them is one of the reasons I’m writing Smile

    On the 9th of June this year I wrote a blog called “How To Know…” about liking a couple of guys and how to know if they liked me……well, I can say that soon after that blog I got a bf! He’s perfect! I know that that may be a bit biased but he is just…PERFECT! We have been together for 3 months and I can honestly say that I am the happiest that I have been for quite some time Smile He makes me happy and brings a smile to my face whenever I think/hear/see him. I honestly thought I had been broken but he has fixed me. I cannot imagine my life without him anymore. It doesn’t seem possible but it’s true. I know I’m sounding soooo clichéd here but I’m just…… I guess I’m in LOVE!!!!!! There is no way to describe it Smile I just love him to the moon and back a thousand times!

    I love you baby! xoxoxoxox

    Coffee……

    Howdy there everyone,

    I am addicted to coffee! There, I said it! I drink one in the morning and then quite a few throughout the day. At work it’s probably 3-4 so that makes me feel horrible even now just thinking about it. So, I have made the decision now that I am going to give it up. Accountability. That’s the aim here. By saying it here in public forum, I am making myself accountable.

    Mostly this all stems from my underlying feeling of wanting to be healthy. I have started to go for walks and incorporate runs (a whole other blog) and I think that giving up coffee is going to be a huge step. I am going to write it everywhere so that everyone can see, even on the fridge.

    I have been reading this site energyfriend and their post on Caffeine Withdrawal Symptoms: Top Ten and I have to say, I am terrified. Reading some of the comments about the symptoms and what people have gone through is making it sound like a very scary experiment but I know that for my own peace of mind, I have to do this. I just have to. I know it will be hard and I am hoping that I can write about my experience on here and hope that it will be an interesting ride.

    Let’s see how I do anyway. I have to start tomorrow morning. ARGH! Wish me luck Smile

    How to know….

    Howdy there everyone,

    I have thought about doing this post all week but I thought I would put it off and to see what happens but so far, nothing.

    See, I like a couple of guys but I don’t know whether they like me back. One of my friends has been trying to gather intel as to what they think of me but so far, I have nothing. I have tried everything. I don’t know what to do or what even to look for. I don’t want to ask them straight out because if they don’t like me at all that could make things a bit awkward. And yes, I see them everyday (mostly).

    So what I want to know is, what do I look for?

    And yeah, I have tried researching it and no, I have no clear idea of what to look for.

    Please help me….

    My Tattoo and it’s meaning….

    Howdy there everyone,

    I thought that I would take this time to talk about something close to my heart and that’s my tattoo. When people first meet me they always ask me about my tattoo which is the Jeff Hardy/WWE symbol.

    I got it a couple of years ago for my birthday (my birthday present to me Smile ) because for two years I had wanted it and I had the money available so I thought why not! And I have to say, I don’t regret it at all. It stands for something that even to this day I believe.

    You see, Jeff Hardy, the wrestler, started to train as a wrestler as a young kid. Him and his older brother Matt Hardy built a homemade wrestling ring in their backyard and tried to replicate the moves that they saw their favourite wrestlers doing on TV. They got a little promotion started up, started video taping their matches and sending that round to the video stores round the area. They did little shows at fairs and what not until they were discovered by good old Jim Ross from the WWE. The rest is history.

    Basically, the tattoo means that if you work hard and you believe that you will get there, you can do anything and be anything you want to be. Which is a good something to mean Smile

    The other thing to me is that Jeff Hardy epitomizes the very style of wrestling that I enjoy. Fast paced, exciting, dare devil. All those sorts of matches. I guess in a way, he kind of epitomizes the X-Division from TNA which is my fav division. It used to have this moniker of “It’s not about weight limits, it’s about no limits” and that’s my fav style of wrestling.

    I can tell you that I am happy to have this tattoo and the stuff that it means to me is more then most people realize. I don’t think I need to explain it to anyone anymore then I already have so I will just leave it there Smile

    Have fun and take care everyone.

    Lil xoxo
