September update

Goal: My plan for September was to face a few fears and i am proud to say i did face a few fears :)
1. Long run outside alone in the rain ( this was another scary and empowering experience I will share a post on this)
2. Finishing my first 10k charity run (post coming up)
3. Joining the running club 
4. Sharing my blogposts on fb ( I have slowly started sharing my blog with my non-virtual friends and family, I was and I still am scared of being judged but I was also keen on sharing it with them, maybe some of them find my experiences useful)
5. Sharing my running club blogpost in the gym 
6. Making new friends in the gym (I am painfully shy and I am usually full of self doubt so I am great at going unnoticed, 1 have been going to the same gym for over 1 year now usually see the same faces but never really made the last one month I went ahead spoke to a few regulars and now I have gym friends)
Exercise: I exercised as planned for all the weeks except the week before the race when I reduced everything because i wanted to not have any soreness on the race day
Food: I stuck to most of it, I would say 90% good choices
Keep Reading I will Keep Writing 


  1. Facing fears ... that is NOT one of my strong suits. Congratulations to you for overcoming!

  2. Good u could do most as planned. Publishing ur plans will add a pressure to stick to plans and perform too. Waiting for ur blogs.

  3. I also find it awkward to share this with non-blogging friends and non-TOPS friends.However, I think that most people my age and older really are concerned about eating right and fitness. However, many of them think I'm a bit over-the-top with eating and fitness. I know you've written posts about that issue too. :D

  4. Creating my PlumPetals Fit Facebook page was tough for me to do, but I felt like it was time since trying to get healthy has become such a big part of my life.
    You're doing an awesome job - well done for facing your fears! :)
