Today's exercise, mostly

Let's fact it, it's late and I'm tired, so there's no much hope I'm going to post any much other than what exercise I did today, so why not just call the post that?!

I'm feeling really run down at the moment, due to not enough sleep and dunno what else. So I'm off to bed soon, and I've got some vitamin B complex tablets to take. - I'm got some mouth ulcers and vitamin B is supposed to be good for that.

Today I did some skipping and some step ups too. Now I'm off to bed.

National De-lurk week

It's official, according to several different blogs I just looked at, it is National De-lurk week. (Bekki, Arwen, Paper Napkin - ok, so that one was just following the link Bekki had, but three references seemed better than two!)

So, please please please de-lurk. I know several people who know me in real life read this blog, but don't comment much, so if that's you I especially want to hear from you. If you really don't want me to drag out a potentially embarrassing photo (like I did to Esther) and say so then I can try my best not to post one.

Secondly, if you don't know me in real life, I would love to have the chance to get to know you. I love reading blogs, and would definitely check yours out if you have one! And if you don't have a blog, well it would still be fantastic to hear from you.

Thirdly, if you already know me in cyber-space, for example any of the one weigh or another ladies, Kathleen, Chaotic Mum, or Rachel who I am just beginning to get to know, then I love it that you read my blog, and if you could spare a minute then it'd be fabulous to hear from you ;-)

Finally, if you feel you're in another category, for instance you just found my blog by googling something, then say hello too!

Please leave me a comment (or more than one, if you like). I promise I will come visiting to meet you afterwards. Just say hi, or tell me your favourite colour, or share a joke. Whatever you say, say something. Remember, in cyberspace no-one can hear you read :-)

(I've copied this post from my other blog, so if you read that too you might recognise it!)

I only did 100 skips today, but I did also look after little one all day, and that's always hard work!
I'm very tired, so I'm off to bed now (8.40pm) but I did just write a long post on my other blog (click Debs on the side link).
Night night.

Happy belated blogging birthday to me

I noticed today that I've just missed my blogging birthday. I started my other blog a year and 6 days ago - on the 30th December 2005. I've been reflecting how my life has changed since then. You can read that here but I would say one of the biggest changes would have to be losing 20+ pounds off my weight. I know there's a long way to go, but if you'd asked me then I'm not sure I would have thought even that possible.
Here's the the next successful year of blogging, but especially to a sucessful year of weight loss :-)

Doing ok-ish

School was ok.
I'm doing ok-ish, but no skipping today because my asthma is still only just under control.
Will try to blog longer posts at the weekend.

I'm ill

Just feeling really yucky today. Not really with it most of the time - a bit floaty. I did not do any skipping today. Please pray that I'm ok to go to work tomorrow. Ok, so actually at the moment I feel like I don't ever want to go again, but I figure I need to give it a fair chance this term, havnig sat down and come up with some stuff with the class teacher. I've just been dreading having to go back all this week. So also please pray that things go ok in school.

I'm fighting a cold still, so not feeling 100% yet. However, I did manage to skip 200 jumps today.
Sorry, that's all I can think of to say right now!

Monday weigh-in

I am indeed up this week. In fact I'm at 270.8 which is up 3 from last week. However I shall not beat myself up over it, but am just even more determinded to lose weight this week :-)

In other news I managed 100 jumps\skips (still can't decide which word to use though) and can already feel that I am able to do them a bit quicker, and more jumps at a time before I get caught up in the rope. We also went on a (r)amble this morning with some people from our church. It was quite a gentle walk as we had a few young kids with us, but it was good just to be able to get out in the fresh air and it not be raining! (I think we're forecast rain for the rest of the week, so I'm not sure what that'll mean for the skipping)
