Apologies for the recent hiatus. It wasn't intentional. Life just got in the way!
How is everyone doing? Even though I've not been posting on here, i've still been mooching around and reading your blogs :)
So whats been going on I hear you ask? Well, i've been one busy bee!
Since my last post in April (shocking) I have since been on holiday and our friends got married whilst we were there.
We went to Rhodes, Greece for two weeks and it was lush! 29 of us altogether and we had a great time! The weather was fab, company was great and we had a ball :)

Now that the holiday is over, its time to get back into routine and start shedding the pounds.
Ive been in a bit of a rut (again!) with losing weight. Part of me just cannot be arsed anymore, then I don't like what I see or feel uncomfortable in my clothes and I realise I do want to lose weight.
I gave Slimming World another go from March to May and I lost 11lb and it was going well, but then I got bored. I always get bored! I just didn't want to pay to go to a class anymore and then I just stopped following the plan.
I really didn't want to continue paying per week for someone to weigh me. I know sometimes it does help to go to a class but it just wasn't for me at that time.
I have now decided to try out the 5:2 fasting plan. I have another holiday in 12 weeks and I want to shift a few pounds. Ive been reading all about it and it seems very do-able. The fact that I can eat without counting calories on 5 days out 7 really appeals to me. Obviously I won't go crazy on the non-fast days but it will be nice to not have to count! The two days I've decided to fast on are a Tuesday and Thursday. These days i'll be consuming no more than 600 calories. Sounds drastic, but after checking out what I can eat for that amount of calories Im confident i'll be fine.
My weigh day is a Friday am and this is my first week. I'll keep you posted!
Exercise wise I'm back running and I'm enjoying it. Its been a struggle though as I've pretty much had to start from scratch again, but I'm upto 3.5km and I'm sure in the coming weeks i'll improve even more. Im also doing two weight sessions a week and a kettle bell class every other week. I'll continue this for as long as I'm enjoying it. My main focus is primarily running over the next few months.
Mmmmm what else have I been upto? Ohhhh I took my girl to her first concert two weeks ago to see Little Mix in Cardiff. She loved it! They were awesome live and put on a really good show. We had fab seats and had a great view of them.

Ive had a few nights out here and there with friends too which have been fun. Surprisingly though my summer is looking quiet! Im sure that will change in the very near future :)
What do you have planned this summer? I can't wait to spend my evenings out the garden and my weekends with family & friends <3 Lets hope the sun will shine for us all!
