I haven't done very well this weekend! I have sciatica that comes and goes, and it's back with a vengeance right now. And we're having a heatwave, so it's back to 95-100. Yuck. Neither have me motivated to get out and run at all.

How are your spouses/partners? My husband is an elite runner. He is very fit. He also has a horrendous sweet tooth, and it's so hard to resist when he's having cookies and ice cream sandwiches and bits of chocolate all the time. I've talked to him about keeping it out of the house, but it never lasts. About a year ago I swore off sweets, and I did pretty well with it. I think I'm an all or nothing kind of girl. I need to get back into the mindset that I just don't eat that stuff.

I don't really have much weight to lose, just vanity pounds, I guess, but I'd really love to get back to exercising being habit rather than a chore.

Mine trains dogs for a living so he is out walking around all days, all hours, all weathers. He also lifts weights every morning and goes for a run or a bike ride with our own dog most days.

So he can eat whatever he likes and not feel the effects, which sucks, but I've only got myself to blame for my lack of definition!

Meep that's so funny ... My oh is a dog trainer too but mainly coaches agility now . We have 4 dogs , two BC and a lab . He is out walking / training them morning , noon and night . We also offer home boarding .. He works out daily in a home made gym too . He has a sweet tooth at night and will easily put away a packet of biscutes in a sitting

Haha! What a weird coincidence! Mine mainly deals with problem dogs (usually by training the owners lol) and a bunch of regulars who enjoy a long walk and a swim, but have owners who work. It's always nice to see an antisocial dog become one of the 'pack' and make friends :') ... he has such a way with them.

We only have the one dog, a male Kelpie. We've had dogs to stay too!

Should have seen the gigantic bowl of pasta OH downed last night. He's working it off right now to the beat of some crappy music he likes!

Ok so today so far so good !! Didn't manage to go weigh myself that will have to wait until tomorrow . Did manage a 30min walk albeit with a toddler on a bike and a dog on a lead in tow so wasn't particularly fast !!! But done anyhow ....
Today I'm feeling quite motivated and my sweet potato soup was lovely

I'd like to join you. I'm currently 10st 11lb and would like to lose 18lb to get back to the weight I was before my first of three babies.

I put on about 3 stone with each baby but lost the majority of it fairly quickly after the first 2. After the initial baby/placenta/blood weight loss from the birth of baby number 3, I lost very little weight so was left with a good 2 stone excess. I've lost nearly a stone of it over the last 3 months through phases of better rating but now I'm adding proper exercise into the mix too.

I'm going to try to avoid sugar and wheat (except the coffee and cake meet up I have planned tomorrow) and drink loads of water.

I alreadu walk every day but o want to do a proper workout 3 times a week too.
