Back to life, back to reality.


Yeah I’ve had a hiatus. I lost my mojo, I bumbled, faffed and coasted throughout January and February. I cursed the rain. I trained but didn’t have any goals after deciding I was just not going to hit the targets for Britain’s Strongest Woman (and lack of gumption).

Of course life continued. I worked, I volunteered, I kept the children alive, I occasionally had a conversation with my husband.

Then I was ill for 2 weeks. God I hate being ill. My butt started to hurt from sitting down so much and doing nothing.

Suddenly it was MARCH 2014. 2 months just gone from my life.

Therefore I have dragged my motivation kicking and screaming from out from behind sofa where it has been hiding like an escaped hamster. I am reining in my nutrition to get to under 75kg category and stop using my history of disordered eating as an excuse.

The rest of 2014 should be QUAKING in fear.

    I was wondering where you have been lately. It’s winter and you were just hibernating for a bit. Nothing wrong with that. Now start kicking some strongwoman ass!
