I'm taking on Sweatember to raise money for Cancer Research UK, please support me.

This September, I’m taking on Sweatember, an epic 30-day exercise challenge for Cancer Research UK. Help me raise money to fund life-saving cancer research by sponsoring me.

Anyone who has met me will know that exercise is not a massive factor in my life and that I spend a lot of time in my car eating Percy Pigs, which is good for M&S profit but not great for my waistline!

So, motivation has struck and I’m taking on this challenge, not only to help me in the long run but also to help save and prolong the lives of others.

I promise a lot of sweaty faced selfies and “help me” posts - which will keep you all entertained

Please spare what you can for this great cause x x x

Since the last time I posted, I’ve spent time sweating cleaning out my car - anyone who’s seen my car will know why I was sweating... I’ve done a couple of days jumping about with kids doing penguin races and being jelly beans, power walked to school and back a couple days (trick is to leave too late to stroll) and several days doing YouTube workout videos - with no-one else in the house... cause no-one needs to see me doing that!!! Its been touch but im feeling way better about getting moving and will hopefully continue after sweatember!!! I’ve not managed to join a gym yet and finding a half hour of motivation is pretty difficult everyday but it’s worth it! Thanks to everyone who’s sponsored me so far x x x

So this week, I’ve been a bit quite and really finding it hard to make/find time to be sweating! For the first few days I pushed harder at my normal activity and sweaty wet sand at work for 30mins - doesn’t sound much but Jings I was cream crackered!!! Then a few days of mad jumping about with kids going on imaginary trips to the moon etc hen by Thursday I was running up and down my stairs in the house for 30 mins and Friday night was running on the spot in the living room. Now I’m onto YouTube work it videos to keep me going. I feel like I’m doing more than I’ve done in a long time but could still be doing more, I wanted to join the gym and haven’t found a minute... so I’m challenging myself to get that done this week! All of your donations and supportive messages are really helping and having this to work towards is keeping me motivated - so thank you x x x
