Oh god, I've been missing all summer! And this is true of real life too, we spent the summer swanning off on various camping trips, punctuated by a few short bursts of work. I'll pay the price of the lack of working in my wages at the end of this month, October may not be easy!
So rather than prattle on about my weight or my diet, I thought I'd share my holiday snaps with you for a change.
To launch the summer, we headed off to Delamere Forest, with our bikes in tow. We had just 2 rides in the forest before my brand new bike's chain jammed between the gear cogs, rendering it unusable. The conversation in the bike shop began like this: "So, I was out on my bike in the middle of the forest, miles from home..." and happily ended with my bike repaired and returned to me the same afternoon.
For our second jaunt of the summer holidays, we headed to Bakewell in the Peak District, where we spent a few fabulous days with my imaginary friends from the internet. We've all got them, right?
Finally we headed north, to Bonnie Scotland. We stayed in a Eurocamp tent at Cobleland, near Stirling. We had the best time, being absolute tourists and visiting places we had never visited before - Edinburgh, Stirling, Loch Lomond, Gretna Green!
So that's it, the summer's over, it's September and it's high time I climbed back on the wagon!
Hi, I'm Wendy. I'm 41 years old and I somehow managed to ignore all inner voices telling me I didn't want to be fat and forty. Join me as I fight the good fight with the mighty Slimming World behind me. As I lose weight I am also trying to get fit, so no doubt you will see fads come and fads go as I feel my way through the alien world of gyms, exercise and fitness.
Join me on my second year of my weight loss campaign, your support will help me as I am to make it a record year!
