Being Hypothyroid is a b*tch …  being an ‘unstable’ hypothyroid  (fluctuating levels) is a f******B**CH!

Being that… AND having Ferritin levels that are way too low, is like “WTF?  GIVE ME A BREAK!!!”. Continue reading


parkrun #2

Today i volunteered to be the parkrun TailRunner!  In the hope that someone would be walking, i thought it was a FAB way of getting back into this running thing.  The tail runner two weeks ago got me through by just being so sweet and amazing!  It was my turn to ‘give back’.

Something i have been wondering for a bit now…   I would LOVE to run long and LOVE/CHERISH every minute of it… however, i cannot get my head around how much commitment it takes to do that. Continue reading


BungyPump here and BungyPump there…

What are BungyPumps? ย Take look here! ย and yes… i HAVE a pair that i love and cherish!

Hubby on the other hand thinks its bl**dy hiLaRiOuS to see me walking and even more so , running with them! ย in fact… ‘wet pants’ is more like it!

So when i asked him to come with me last night for a quick 3km, he fell about laughing, beer in hand! ย  Continue reading

you know when you just cannot seem to prioritize because there is so much going on?   you end up doing nothing? :) 

Life is a bit hectic at the moment, work is still really busy, to the point where i am now beginning to lose sleep over stuff i need to remember to do.  Hay fever season has kicked in big time *lol* ugh i look a wreck! *sneeze* Continue reading



You read my last post about joining a parkrun… yip, i finally did it.  I walked it with a little bit of running (about 2 minutes) to try and not be too last… i know last is like last, but sh*t, TOO last (there IS such a thing yunno) is like arriving at the finish line with everyone yawning, asleep or twiddling thumbs, the humiliation would have killed any enthusiasm i had picked up along the way. Continue reading
