This has been a summer of excess…
Food, booze and men… and none of them leave a particularly nice after taste!
So many things have happened recently that have certainly made me take a step back to rethink ‘life’ as I know it. Albeit everything for the most part is settled, there are a few trivial things that could do with a shake up… including the ‘full moon ass’.
There is only one thing for it… I have decided to start running!
Yes, ok, thanks for that shocked face you are currently making… it is true! No, I am not being chased by zombies (yet) nor plastic cables ties (again), I have just come to the realisation that it is ‘the’ thing to do!
Is it just me who has noticed everyone running at the moment? I cannot drive down the road without almost running several runners over, or having them rudely interrupt my dog walks as they pass by in an oblivious haze. It appears every man who partakes in online dating also runs, even my matey Heather has taken part in several marathons this year and looks amazing for it. Could running actually be the exercise elixer? The one thing that is finally going to rid me of my troublesome behind and hips? Ask me in a few weeks and I shall tell you!
For the moment I am going to be starting with the Couch to 5k app… at the gym, so that I do not get these absolutely stunning Pink Adidas Energy Boost 2 running trainers from JD Sports dirty (I am slightly weird like that; Heather has given up on me!) – they very kindly donated the pair to me in order to give my ass the swift kick it needed.
So now I have no option but to go through with pounding the pavement treadmill and hopefully watch as the poundage drops off me in my weight loss journey. As a previous short distance runner, long distance is going to be a literal uphill struggle. Not only that but I will be combining this with the Almased diet at the same time, so expect me to be a grouchy moose, with very tired legs and complaints of aches and pains in places I never knew existed.
Stick with me to see how I do and how long I can keep the stunning pink trainers clean for!
Thanks JD Sports!
