Janathon days 7 and 8

I'm afraid I only managed to do 20 mins on the elliptical trainer last night, just before going to bed!! (technically still blogged within 24 hours of doing it!!).

Today has been a bit frantic because we put our lovely house up for sale, so the was much hiding things in cupboards and under stairs for the photographs!
Doug and I took Polly out for a brisk and windy walk covering approx 2 miles for my janathon contribution.

Gotta go...will blog properly tomorrow.

Janathon Day 6

A small one with Polly dog this morning. I got us both dressed for the rain which was pelting down when I got find that it had dried up when we got out the door. I spent another couple of minutes getting rid of the coats (hers and mine), and I did a longer loop because I had a bit of time before work, because I'd been super organised with getting breakfast and lunch together. My legs were killing me from the squats I did during the shred DVD, so not very comfortable. The scales have been really spiteful since the start of Janathon, continuing on a upward trend (WTF is that all about??).

Breakfast consisted of a toasted cinnamon and raisin bagel with a banana (must be a green banana not yellow or 'ripe'). Lunch was couscous and mixed salad veg with a tofu hot dog sausage (I love tofu, a recent revelation but I do *heart* it!!).

Scores on the doors 2.1 miles at a sort of 'joggle' type gait

day 5

So up a the trumpet of a sparrows fart again this morning.
I know that Janathon is mostly people running and how far one has run at the end of the month, but I have challenged myself to lose 11lbs before the end of February, but I'd also like to tone up my bingo wings/bum/thighs/tum etc. There's a whole heap jiggling about, and I'm terrified of losing weight and ending up looking like

I decided to give 'Jillean Michaels 30 Day Shred' a go (I have more DVD's than you could wave a pound of fat at!!). I've done it once before and it almost killed me. Jumping jacks are not fun when you smack yourself in the eye with your own boobs!!

25 mins or thereabouts of pushups, star jumps, sit ups, jigging on the spot etc.
I'm done for day 5.

Janathon day 4

Back to work today, therefore I planned ahead last night and got all my bits and bobs out ready to plonk on after a shower. I had set the alarm for an eyeball watering 05:00 to ensure that all calls of nature had been answered before I set off out the door with El Mutt

(This was taken in the summer....not that we're having an unseasonably good spell of sunshine, or it's light here at o6.00!)

I fell over quite alot of things as I stumbled around looking for a better pair of socks and a slightly warmer base layer, grabbed Pollys running lead and headed out. I had intended to just do a once round the block, but ended up doing a 'just a bit longer than a once round the block trying to avoid the hill but not managing'

1.04 miles in 12:11.
not great, but it's a streak saver at least!!

Janathon day 3

See the activity on RunSaturday
Type:Cross - Elliptical
Distance:3.98 mi

Did the E.T again today because I'm a bit short of time. Last day before I'm back at work, and I still have the best part of a 4,000 word assignment to do before 4th Feb!!! Eeeep!!!

Another great smoothie, banana and blackberries with agave and a shake of cinnamon. I use milk instead of yoghurt/fruit juice, and it makes for a great post effort breakfast. Hubby doing a no point soup (weight watchers 'no points'....not just 'no point in making a soup' no point!!!

Janathon Day 2

I decided to go for the elliptical trainer today because of yesterdays jigglings! I have the E.T set up in the conservatory, so it's easy to hop onto and bash out a few miles.

Stats for today:
7.7 km (or 4.8 miles)
37.02 mins
177 cals
old mp3 player with some great choons.

Photos also taken of front and side views, but I'm not posting them....EVER! I look like the creature from the black lagoon....only lumpier!

Just finishing my cranberry and raspberry smoothie, and am off out with the dog.

Day 1 Janathon

So here we are at the beginning of another year. I felt slightly muzzy after a few too many Vodkas last night, but ready to spank this challenge.
I'd like to combine the challenge with my weight loss, therefore when I blog my activities, I'll also track my intake online. I have taken a photo of the (mean and spiteful) scales this morning after my ablutions, and it's made me even more determined to get a grip. For my weight, I should be 7'6" tall! that can't be done!!! I will post the weightloss evidence at the end of the month.

So for today, I donned my ipod and did day #1 of the c25k. Being a little on the portly side, this proved to be most uncomfortable, and I found the whole thing rather unpleasant.
Result:1.65miles in 22.35. No land speed record, but jogged blogged and logged.
