HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY! Considering I was panicing (again) about the fact I went to the pub on Sunday and ate my weight in waffle and brownie calzone I am OVER THE MOON!!! It is SUCH a good feeling to know you can have a good time and still pull it right on back. I have also started running again, I took a week off – I was tired and ratty and I have discovered in life, if nothing else, it pays to step back if you are not enjoying something and start it again when you feel better – back on the treadmill Monday and LOVED IT. That much that I signed up and the eldest up for the Colour Run next June! MADNESS!! But by that time I hope to be able to run 5k without dying, it is a surprise on the C25k (yeah I dropped the 10k one I was pushing there tbh) when you go from walking/jogging in repetitions of 90 seconds and on week three BOOM 90 jogging, 90 walking, THREE MINUTES jogging, three minutes walking – twice. THREE MINUTES!
Probably loads of fit ppl reading this going HA! THREE MINUTES! but for a flabby girl with bad knees and a hate for moving faster than 4km an hour unless there is a cake dangling from a string, its TOUGH. But I did it, I reached out twice to knock it down from 6kmph but I didn’t, I did the full 3 minutes twice without giving in.
So to me, that is a gold star and a HALF! So last night was a really nice surprise to top off a really stressful day, really nice!
I have been trying to sleep better too, I have got into a pattern of bed between 12-1am and up again between 6-7am and it was killing me, I’ve been in bed by 11pm the last few nights, and not waking til 7am and slowly I am feeling more human, so sleep definitely is not for the weak, it’s for the sensible. Although I do fear I am becoming a nan – I have a new found love of beetroot, cardigans and the urge to learn crochet.
GET OFF MY LAWN!
