UPDATED That Pesky Youtube and Eight months Blogging/ An exciting announcement

Hello all, 

Lots of things going on in the title of this post....

So First things first....

I thought that I had successfully uploaded my Decembers Favourite Vlog on Friday

Oh boy was I wrong.... those of you that are familiar with Youtube will know that she is a rather harsh mistress. 

I'm actually gutted because, this is the first video that I've done in a long time that I feel really good about. 

I feel like I was able to completely relax during filming and that even the background of the Vlog was on point. Probably because I was talking about myself ahaha. 

I am currently uploading it for a second time. Once again I shall update this post with the Vlog if it actually decides to work this time.....*shakes fist*

EDIT: It worked, oh golly

You can always check out the written version of the Vlog on this post : ) - December Favourites

Second item on the agenda - Today is Hideaway's eight month anniversary. Oh yes, I actually managed to post it on the 9th this month (check me out) 

I've noticed that this month the blog has really taken off ( I reached 1000 subscribers in December which is a crazy amount) and the numbers are continuing to grow. The social media pages are really taking off as well and I am beyond grateful. 

I love you all and I mean that, I know that the future is impossible to predict.... I may annoy you all or you might find a different blog that you like more... but if you stick around then I'm sure I will keep finding things to write about!

I think that I will do a quiz post tomorrow to celebrate, I love doing them but for some reason I haven't done one for monthsss


as I don't want you to miss out on the exciting announcement that I made on Youtube.... I have some news....

SO .....

Basically, I decided that attempting to run in one race apparently wasn't good enough... So as well as running the Suffering race (info is on this post here) but I decided that I am also going to run the Tough Mudder Race as well. 

The tough mudder is along the same lines ( a 5K race with 12 obstacles in it) 

This is with other people from work so I am finding it easier to motivate myself for than the Suffering because that is with people that are outside of my day to day life. 

I think having people there daily with remind me to stick to the healthy route and to keep training. 

We shall be doing this race as a team so I am unsure as to how we will collect sponsorship (if you decide that you want to sponsor me that is....

We are running on behalf of Children in need ( I did some volunteering in November for them also and you can read about that on this post here)

Time to get fit and healthy! 

I shall keep you updated with the fitness journey. 

I can already feel my healthy changes working (pick up my tips here)

Bit of a bumper post for you all! 

Let me know if you are on the fitness hype at the moment....
