Happy weekend! I hope you’ve had a fantastic one, despite the awful weather!
I meant to post on Friday, as per usual, but was stuck in a bit of a scrum at the time…
And yesterday I was recovering from a completely mental day, which included hitch hiking through flood water on the back of a trailer, running around Royal Marines throwing and catching sandbags like they were filled with feathers and interviewing the Prime Minister in knee deep water while wearing completely unwaterproof shoes (me, not the PM, he was in sensible wellies)…
Work wise, last week was busy but fulfilling. There were further redundancies, some close to me, and that was and still is incredibly difficult to deal with. My approach is now to make the most of every moment I have in this crazy, intense, stressful yet awesome position. I’m not sure how much longer it will last.
Moving away from work and on to food and workouts! I’ve been finding my balance this week and have definitely seen an improvement in terms of bloating and weight, despite not having much of a chance to workout.
Here’s what I’ve been up to:
A light and colourful dinner of cod, avocado, salad and asparagus
Tucked into my first Pulsin bar in ages. So good!
A fun snack of tuna, salad, carrot, ACV and chilli flakes
Grilled salmon, avocado, salad and sweet potato fries
Soup at Cafe Nero again!
Raw brownie, yummy!
Still addicted to iQ choc (see my review)
In terms of workouts, this week has been all about running around for work and not a single run, which does make me sad. Still, I fitted in what I could when I could. The majority of my workouts have been walking, because I can keep tabs on my Blackberry, answer the phone and run errands at the same time.
I planned to do a full set of blogilates and a run on Saturday but after one video, I had to stop. My arms and legs were shaking and couldn’t hold my body up at all – apparently walking 6 miles through flood water in non-waterproof shoes lugging 55lbs of kit destroyed me more than I thought.
This morning’s gym visit was lovely though, it felt good to get my sweat on and not check the clock or answer my phone.
