A nice lazy Sunday

It was so nice to sleep in this morning. I have worked six days this week so I was really tired. Work was really tough this week so I am glad it is over. Hopefully this week will be a better one.

Have had a lovely weekend. It started with ice skating in front of the natural history museum on Friday night. It was so pretty with fairy lights and christmas lights. It really reminded me of some movies I have seen with a white christmas. I then worked saturday morning but went to the gym straight after work. I did a 10km run and pushed 2km as fast as I could. I did them in 4mins 17sec and 4mins 14 sec so I was pretty happy with that. I have been doing quite a bit of running again and really enjoying it. Unfortunately I haven't done too much outside because it is so bitterly cold and wet but i'm happy to jog away on the treadmill with my ipod in. I really want to run the half marathon next year when I get home. My legs today are really quite sore and stiff so I am lucky I had a day off.

Diet has been really spot on this week but my tummy has been doing back flips. It has been really sore with cramps and haven't really been hungry at all but making sure I didn't skip any meals. I saw a nice drop on the scales too so that has kept me motivated.

Have a great week,

Full update

I had such a busy week last week after coming home from Scotland. By the time we got back in on monday night I only got 5 hours sleep before rising for work on Tuesday. It was then my friends birthday on Wednesday and we went and saw the musical Wicked- so another late night. It was absolutely fbulous though. I just love musicals. I then got asked to work saturday so by saturday night I was so tired.

Food was average last week too. I was craving chocolate something cruel! I know I get like this around the time of the month but I usually have the will power to just ignore it. Not this week. I was still eating everything else well but just couldn't resist some chocolate. I have a lot of clients that bring in chocolates and lollies so this wasn't helping! Exercise on the other hand was spot on. Thankfully I did not do any damage on the scales and have gone back to eating really well this week. I will hopefully have a loss when I weigh in on friday.

I have been lucky enough to have a few days of this week so I have been enjoying being at home, watching some DVDs and calling some family and friends back home. I have now got my ticket booked to arrive back in Perth on the 21st February (my birthday!) so I am very excited. Before that though we are going to Prague and the french alps and south africa before arriving back. So some great times ahead!!

Hope you are all having a good week.

Take care

I'm still here

I have been stupidly busy with going away to Scotland last weekend and arriving home on midnight monday. I then have been working all week and gyming it in the evening. I have just been asked to work saturday which I agreed too so I will be a busy bunny for the next few days.

Food has been a little bit of because we were staying with friends but it is all back on track now.

Will write a long post on the weekend and fill in all the details.

Hope you are having a great week
