Committment on Line

I wasn't going to go out this morning. I had planned to but the duvet was warm and it was raining. However I thought of This Forum and I got up.
I went out a slug and came back with my self esteem.

I have committed to lose a stone before I do the Alton 10K. (don't worry I have 4 to lose!)

The Mr has said he will help and you heard it here second!!!

Running is great - it gives you such an opportunity to sort things out in your mind.

Now for the next commitmment - try and get the toddler to eat fruit.......


  • Inspiration to me soozie,I shall now go out as well!!I am more a fairweather runner so the rain put me off.Toddlers now!!!Cant remember anything about them(its a time we tend to forget with ease)but canny get teenagers to eat fruit either1
  • Stewed apples.......sorry, that what both my two not-so-little ones started on before moving onto fully fledged fruit, alternatively nectarines seems to the favorite.

    Well done on getting out the door.

    Thanks Soozie, you've pricked my conscience...I've been using the drizzly rain as an excuse not to go this morning. Can't use that one any more as it's stopped!
  • I actually like running in the rain - splashing through puddles can be good fun. I'm glad to see the back of the hot weather!
  • Go girl!

    Soozie, that's great news. We should use your message in an advertising campaign :-)

    Have a terrific weekend - run well!

  • Hope allgoes well with the toddler eating fruit! - mine are OK with bananas and strawberrries (+ sugar), but vegetables are another matter......
  • I am a bit of a beginner - February this year. I am afraid I use my running to get away from my toddler (that sounds awful) - a whole hour for just myself. I love running in the rain though - I always seem to run my fastest in the rain. Doing a 10K on Sunday and praying for a nice drizzle. My toddler loves grapes, bananas and raisins!

  • Toddler can sniff out anything fresh at 20 paces. It can't be wet or brightly coloured. You know - I might try stewed apples - it just sounds too simple.
    Will check him for signs of scurvy and let you know..
  • Steer clear of kiwi fruit, Soozie - they're nappy armageddon. And all of my kids have had very sore bums at some time as a result of being allowed to feed freely on grapes.

    What worked for me was to get myself a big plate of fruit or vegetables and tell the sprog-of-the-moment that it was mine, not theirs. That soon had them positively begging! I'm trying the same thing now (with limited success) to get numbers 3 and 4 to eat recognisable meat instead of fish fingers and chicken nuggets.
