Me and My Fitbit

I thought I would blog again with my FitBit findings from my first day back at work today. I had to go to our London head office and I chickened out of getting the train due to the horrible weather and the fact my laptop bag and all it’s paraphernalia weighs in at least 5kg

Running with my 6 year old girl

Yesterday my daughter and I went out for a run together. She is 6 and has been asking if she can run with me for a while so I said that of course she could, but that I wanted to get her some trainers first. We went shopping and I have to say, like mother

Club run this morning, plus a bit more about cake

Today has got off to a fabulous start, and it’s still only 10.30 am. Was up at 6am (on a Sunday! – do I get a medal for that?) and met some other lovely Stotfold Runners at 7am for a 10k run. Ange, Rosie and I ran / walked at a comfortable pace. 5 minutes

Went for my run nice and early this morning before the kids’ cricket and ballet runs started. I’m glad I got it out of the way before it hammered it down! As it happened son’s cricket was cancelled anyway due to the rain. So I have spent the morning baking instead, I love spending a

Exercise is good for you right?

I did a 45 minute Hatha Yoga class yesterday and I now ache all around my ribcage or I suppose I should say ‘core’. This is unexpected. Who knew Hatha Yoga would give me pain – I thought it would help! I seem to have spent the best part of the last 7 days aching

I’m feeling a little fed-up today. After doing so well and losing the 10 pounds I completely lost it at the weekend! It all started when we went to my daughter’s school fair where there was a lovely cupcake stand – Right Royal Cupcakes. All the stands were set up in the pouring rain, and

It was a beautiful day today. I’m still recovering from my cold from last week so rather than go for a run I decided to go for a 4 mile walk with the dog. In spite of all Mr L and I’s mileage, the dog doesn’t really get out much bless him. He’s not normally

Cookies and Cream Fudge Brownies

We’ve got our lovely friends visiting this weekend so I’m baking some goodies ready for them. Last time they visited we were in the middle of Lent and my little boy had given up chocolate so I didn’t make any cakes with chocolate in, much to my friend’s little boy’s disgust 😉 So this time

Banana Bread

After all the running training I haven’t had as much time to bake as I’d like. I was having withdrawal symptoms so I whipped up some a Banana loaf quickly before work today. (I’m still waking up at 5am unable to get to sleep for some reason) It might seem from my blog that I’m
