Like children all around the country Toby and Gabe have just finished their first half term back at school after the summer. And with a return to school comes the tiredness from early mornings and long days. One way I know I can help the boys cope with that tiredness the best they can is to make sure they are getting all the necessary nutrients they need from a healthy balanced diet.
If you’ve been following my blog for a while then you might know I came up with a (sort of) plan on my 39th birthday to be Fit by 40. Well, I turned 40 in May, and wrote then about how I had got on. I didn’t quite achieve everything I wanted to so the plan has evolved in to my ‘Fit at 40’ plan and I thought it was time I shared a little update. Read more
Last year, just after my 39th birthday I decided I had had enough of being overweight, unfit, tired and generally pretty fed up with my body and how I felt about myself. I even wrote a poem about it! I’ve been writing various updates about my ‘Fit by 40’ mission for the last year, and so with just 23 days until the big 4-0 I thought I’d give you another little update about where I’m at just now.

Welcome back to my Fit by 40 series. I am now only 4 months away from my 40th birthday and although I’m very pleased with the progress I’ve made so far, I’ve still got a way to go to get to where I want to be. I mentioned in my last update that I had been loosely following a 16:8 intermittent fasting plan. Well, since the new year I have found out some more about IF and I am now fully committed to this new way of eating. Read more
It’s been a while since I wrote my last Fit by 40 post and now we are almost six months since I started on this journey (I hate calling it a journey but I can’t think of any other word to use!) I thought it was about time I gave you an update. Read more

Regular readers of this blog may know I am currently on a mission to be Fit by 40, and I’ve got about 8 months to go before I get there! Top of my list when it came to getting fit and healthy before my 40th birthday was to lose some weight. Read more
Here’s the latest instalment in my weight loss diaries – I’m now up to 102 days and 25 lb loss. This is how I’ve been feeling for the last three weeks or so and how I’m trying to plan for what is still to come. I’ve also included a little video of what I eat in a typical day following the Shake That Weight Woman with Meal plan. You can read the rest of my Fit by 40 posts here. Read more
I’ve been on a weight loss mission since my 39th birthday at the end of May. So far I have lost a total of 17 lbs and most of that has been following the Shake That Weight VLCD. I have been keeping a diary of my thoughts and feelings as I edge closer to my goal weight and you can read the previous Fit by 40 posts here. Read more
It’s time for another update in my weight loss and fitness story – you can read my last up date here. I’m still plodding on – a total of 16lb lost now (and 3 inches off my waist) and although it’s coming off quite slowly I have lost weight every single week. I can only call that a success I reckon.

Cake. I ate all the cake. Well not quite all the cake but a lot of it anyway. I’m trying not to beat myself up about it but it’s hard not to. And we’ll see what effect it has on the scales on Tuesday. I’ve been back at my yoga the last couple of days though and that’s a start. So I’m just treating this as a bit of a break week and I’ll properly get back on it from now. Today was pretty good actually so I’m going to be positive and take it from there. The trouble I always find with losing weight is that I lose a stone or so and then think ‘oh, I look/ feel so much better than before, that’ll do’ when really I need to keep on going if I’m ever going to get to my pre-baby (and pre-3 week honeymoon in America) weight. Onwards and upwards (or should that be downwards?)
