27th August saw the first ever Simply Health Aberdeen Half Marathon and I completed it! On the morning of the race I was incredibly nervous, my training hadn’t exactly gone to plan; there were runs that ended in me having to phone for a lift home as I was just too tired to carry on.… Continue reading Aberdeen Half Marathon
6 months -how time flies! A check up at 6 months is optional but as I still had one little issue I thought I’d better go see the surgeon. Everything has healed exceptionally well, the scarring is no where near as bad as I had expected, enough dropping has happened that you can’t see the… Continue reading The Booby Diaries – 6 month update
Operation day! We drove to the hospital and checked in around 1pm, paid and was shown to my private room. Soon after a nurse did the pre-op checks; height, weight, blood pressure, medication, checked I hadn’t eaten from 10pm the night before, allergies etc. The anaesthetist came to explain the process (I’ve had anaesthetic many… Continue reading The Booby Diaries – Part 2
October 2016 I went ahead and got a very much longed for boob job, it’s been one of the best decisions of my life and having read lots of other peoples stories about their experiences I thought I’d share my own here. In October 2016 I went ahead and got a very much longed for… Continue reading The Booby Diaries – Part 1
Hello there, long time, no posts…..again! Well, this time there’s been good reason, I had surgery. This year was the big 30 for me and I decided I’d FINALLY get the surgery I’ve been wanting for around 10 years, mastopexy and augmentation (boob job and a lift), so I’ve been out of gym action for quite… Continue reading 3 Day Doms
Everyone has one these days and I couldn’t possibly be left out! I wanted a fitness tracker that really was for fitness and not just a steps taken type of device, I don’t actually walk that many steps and it had to have some kind of heart rate monitor, so I decided on the Polar… Continue reading Fitness Tracker – Polar A360
Oops! So i’ve not posted in a while, lots of things going on, fitness all over the place, but i’m back 🙂 Over the past couple of months i’ve continued training 4/5 times a week but hit a really long plateau which was very disheartening, so I got myself a personal trainer and she’s been… Continue reading Missing in Action!
Hello! Spring is finally here and I for one am extremely delighted! Driving to work when it’s light and coming home again……..when it’s still light is amazing! I’ve been a bit quiet lately as I’ve had a terrible time getting over a bad cold/perhaps a touch of flu, haven’t we all lately? Anyhow, yesterday was… Continue reading Spring has sprung!
The Curse by Cobra Labs in Lemon Rush is one of my favourite pre-workouts, maybe even in the top 5! So here is a picture of the packaging: Pretty mean?! The powder is a nice fluffy white one and it mixes REALLY well with water, no lumps, no undissolved bits, the flavour is intense and… Continue reading The Curse – Preworkout
‘What’s a pre-workout?’ ‘You’re a gym go-er and you don’t know what a pre-workout is?’ I remember the conversation well. Then the research. Then the first ever pre-workout. Man alive this stuff is good! Nowadays I rarely ever go to the gym without having first taken a pre-workout, unless its a cardio session later in… Continue reading Pre-workouts.
