Day 65: Busy busy time

Today is Day 65 and I’m now in week 10 of the MyBody Challenge, the past couple of weeks have been so busy personally and work wise that I’ve not had time to blog. I’m still doing the MyBody workouts which is a miracle as I’ve been so busy. I am now in touching distance of my goal weight, I’m 8 stone 2 lbs and my waist is 26 inches so I have lost 1 stone 5 lbs and 8 inches off my waist (how mad is that).

Wednesday June 20th I did the pilot of a new panel show with a couple of comedians which was very exciting and if it gets commissioned will be brilliant (can’t tell you any more details as I’m sworn to secrecy). I was given the name Boffin, which was better than some of the panellist had and we had to do the British citizen test and give opinions on a range of different topical issues. I laughed so much my face ached when I got home!

Feisty daughter and I did the Buttercup Walk on June 23rd and she raised £65 for the RNOH at Stanmore, which was brilliant. I even did the MyChoice workout (MyPower 3 and MyCore 2) before I went to get me in the mood for a walk.


Then on Sunday 24th I did a 5 hour Zumba workshop (my FitBit Charge said I did 30,000 steps – how crazy is that but it was brilliant.) Here I am with Annie Farrow’s Zumba girls and the international Zumba teachers (before we started). we didn’t look like this at the end!

Smart son finished his last ‘A’ exam level on June 25th (a relief all round) and supportive husband booked a weekend away for us all to decompress. Spent the weekend in Hunstanton and the weather was fabulous. I ate way too much but fortunately we walked about 20,000 steps each day so managed to stay on target as I’m logging my food in the FitBit app and this is brilliant as it helps me realise when I can’t eat anymore or I have to move a bit more to keep to target. That’s just some of what I’ve been up to – loads of other things in there but I have an article on rare diseases to write today so better crack on.
