Shake that wobble..

Most of you will know that I have started to shake my wobble and tone up a little bit.. Or maybe a lot. I mean, Cesarean sections definitely leave a little to much hanging around afterwards don’t they?

So I developed a whole lot of courage and decided to start running a few weeks back. I was so excited. I even went as far as planning what nights I would run, making sure it didn’t clash with my Pilates… go me, how organised!!

I was all geared up ready for my run, dressed in my new workout clothes, iPhone in hand, with all my wonderful thought out power Ballard’s that I had created on a playlist for the occasion…

It was not to be, it was as if my alter ego couldn’t possibly stand the thought of being seen running through the streets resembling a teletubby.

My headphones wouldn’t work!!!

I couldn’t do it.. I couldn’t bring myself to go out running without some music. I knew that if I were to go out on a run, I would have just walked (again my will power is ridiculously weak!!) I even searched the house upside down for the big mans headphones. That’s how excited I had become, I was quite gutted actually and took a moment to feel sorry for my little old wobbly self.

At least if I had my headphones in I would be able to concentrate on my music rather than watching the people staring at me that wouldn’t actually be staring at me.

It’s such a scary thought going for a run all alone!

I decided that I would purchase some new headphones as soon as possible. I didn’t want to put my running mission off, I know me and I know that if I didn’t act quick I would lose all interest in running all together and I couldn’t let that happen.

Before I went to buy some new headphones the big man found his.. I got a little bit excited that I could go running sooner rather than later. BUT, they didn’t work either. My poor phone was broke, 16 days after my warranty had run out would you believe!!

I couldn’t believe it, I clearly wasn’t destined to run at all. I even tried some of my friend’s headphones just incase the big mans were faulty, again I had the same outcome…

My phone no longer loved me.

Still not happy that my phone was not playing nice and affecting my plans, I decided to play Sherlock. After numerous forums it seemed that this problem was quite common. So I took it upon myself to reset my phone (after backing up all my precious pictures and video’s of the little man)… It worked, my phone decided to play nice and loved me once again 🙂

I was so happy, that within half an hour I was dressed in my new workout clothes and headed out the door on my first run in a good few years.

I had my music blaring as I let the world pass me by. The best bit about it all? I got to shake my wobble looking like a teletubby without a care in the world.

I can’t wait for my next run on Monday. Hopefully I’m not in too much pain tomorrow.

And to my wonderful headphones, I love you more than you will ever know 😉




Quite a few years ago I could quite easily walk into any shop and pick up and item of clothing and buy it there and then without having to try said item on.

My how the years have changed. Once a size 8 with only my bum as a curve to my figure I could get away with wearing anything. And that I did, some very horrendous looking pictures are hidden in my house somewhere.

Being quite content in my relationship with the big man, It didn’t take long for all those weekend takeaways and lying in bed watching movies to catch up with me. Within a 6 month period I had gained just over 3 stone (this was mainly due to my pill as I suffered with quite bad acne.. Some of us have all the luck don’t we) 😉

My weight then began to yo-yo up and down for a number of years. I carried it well at first, bigger hips and boobs. I just assumed I was becoming more womanly.

After 4-5 years of constantly changing dress sizes I decided to take up pole dancing with one of my friends. It was amazing. Admittedly I did look like I had been in a lot of fights as the bruising can be quite bad but I loved the energy I was getting from it and the change to my body. I also started weight watchers and lost 2 1/2 stone.

Shortly after we were given some very exciting news.. Me and the big man were going to be having a baby 🙂
So the pole dancing stopped without a seconds thought and I blossomed into my pregnacy with ease.

I had no morning sickness and loved being pregnant. I loved the way my body was changing and loved nothing more than to show off my baby bump at any given opportunity. I didn’t really mind the weight that I was putting on as I assumed once my little man was here there would be plenty of time to exercise.

My craving wasn’t exactly a healthy craving. All I wanted was mince pies all the time. Family and friends were even bringing them around to my house for me and my mum and dad stocked up on them for me too.

Needless to say the weight piled on and to top it off I developed really bad water retention, my nose doubled in size and I didn’t look like me anymore. It’s definitely not how they make it look in the movies is it?

Due to some major complications with my labour I had to have an emergency caesarean to get the little man out safely. This has then caused me some problems getting my belly back to normal. I don’t mind my wobble as that was my boys home I’d just like it to be a little firmer in places so my clothes will eventually fit properly or as best as they can.

This is why I have joined @angeline1611’s linky #fitnessfanaticfriday. It’s a place where everyone can boost each other on in there weight loss/healthier lifestyle goals. My mission at the moment is to continue with my pilates and take up running.

Head on over and have a look, why not join in the fun while you are over there.
See you all Friday 🙂



Health Kick restarted

I have been extremely naughty so far this year. Again, like last year I always promise myself I will be good, go to the gym and eat well to try and obtain my pre-baby body. I have been telling myself this since the little man arrived. It all starts off great but one way or another the plan never stays in place. 😦

It’s fair to say I have very little will power. I am hoping that by putting my gain’s and losses’ out there it may keep me on track and tame me a little bit.

Work seems to be where this affects me the most, the temptation is too strong to try and hold back from the vending machine and the shop downstairs. Not to mention the wonderful buffet’s that we have at work for special occasions and birthdays. So Far there have been TWO buffet’s in the same number of weeks and they both included CAKE. Who would be able to resist cake, placed perfectly in front of you saying Eat me, you know i’m good for you really? I know I definitely can’t.

All this needs to change however, and fast. I have Just over six weeks to look less frumpy for my First lot of Godmotherly duties. I now plan to go straight back on the healthy eating kick and become addicted to Pilates once again…

Oh and please someone remove that CAKE from my line of vision. What are you trying to do to me 😉
