In all, it has been a fairly positive week with regards to exercise, eating, weight loss and having a positive outlook on everything.
I managed a 3k run yesterday which I was pleased about, considering my kidney is still playing up. Dedication to the cause and all that! I know I need to pull 5k out of the bag at some point in the next 2 months, but I also need to get my butt outside (damn weather!) so that I can put the Suunto Ambit 3 to the test! I am beginning to think that my trainers are hampering me slightly, so have treated myself to some awesome Mizuno Hitogami running trainers in a half size up. I am hoping my toes will be comfier and therefore enable me to carry on running – anyone else suffer with numb toes?
So training preparations are going well and I am gearing myself up, Brioche Pasquier which are a huge hit in our house are going to be sponsoring me for Race For Life and sending some fuel for me – though as Liv is a chocolate bread monster, I am guessing unless I hide the brioche, it will all get eaten… not by me! 😉 There finally seems to be some movement with Scottish Power too, considering it is due to them that I signed up for the race…
Saturday was a real ‘I don’t care what goes in my mouth today…’ (well clearly there were some exceptions!) as I attended the annual BlogOnMOSI conference and wanted to enjoy the day as much as possible… it was a childfree day opportunity not to be missed! In actual fact… I was really good at the event, I had the equivalent of half a sandwich, 1 small glass of Prosecco, 4 black coffees, 2 Swizzle Matlow lollies and a cupcake. It really could have been so much worse with all the calorific cake on offer! Everything was going so well until I got home and with a Hungry House voucher in hand, proceeded to buy a big, fat Texas BBQ pizza! Nom Nom! The takeaway guy even commented on how much weight I have lost… oh the irony as he handed me my pizza! 😉
Even attending an impromptu social event and having a takeaway, I’ve still managed to lose the 1lb that I gained last week. So, I am still currently stuck at a 1 and half stone loss so far…
So how are you this week? Any major losses to report?
