Battle of the Blogger Butts challenge - (No truely)

I am on a diet. But to tell you the honest truth, I am making it up as I go along. I am calling it the 'Becky diet', which means I can eat a chocolate brownie when I want to, so then I do not feel guilty. I might walk a bit more and try and run up and down the stairs a bit more, but other than that I have no exercise plan. So I have set myself two challenges, the first one is to run the local town 2km fun run in May. This is exciting, as I know I could do this with a bit of training. A few years ago, I completed the Race for life for Breast Cancer and managed to raise a far bit of money, have a great day out and felt exhilarated afterwards. The 2km run will be a step up from this, but I am going to give it my best, and also now I have officially told everyone..there is no backing out!
The second one is joining in on the 'Battle of the Blogger Butts' organised by the lovely Farmers wifey , who has kindly suggested that I join them in the great 'Battle of the Blogger Butts' (yes truly) basically the challenge is losing 5 % of your body weight but you can challenge yourself to lose more or less....the idea is to get fitter, healthier and happier!  A great way for lovely people to support each other and help shift a few pounds.
So yes I am always up for a challenge. First thing I have to do is weigh myself, and that in itself is tricky, as I have not weighed myself for about 18months (in denial). Dust of my running shoes and brace myself.

I will let you know my progress over the weeks, but for tonight it is business as usual, Meringues with Vanilla Madagascan cream and blueberries. Tomorrow is another day.

If you fancy joining in, go over to Farmers wifey site and join in!


  1. Yup, my scales are in the bathroom covered in dust. I'm too scared to even look at them. I know if I get on them at the moment they will shout at me "Sorry, no coach parties".

    Good luck!

  2. Wow you are a braver woman than I - walking briskly is my limit!

    Good luck with the running, and the intake of less calories/fat ect...

    I will look forward to your posts
