Hello my lovelies, I hope you are having a great weekend and a wonderful summer solstice! Happy Fathers Day to any Dadas too! My week has been good, but weekend so far has been tough. You know I’m happy to keep it real, yesterday I was in a total funk and actually let myself get quite down in the dumps. I think a teething non sleeping baby had something to do with it! Thankfully I pulled myself out of it, but for a while I was wishing I could just stay in bed! As I said, that aside, it’s been a good week with a few up’s and downs. The highlight was a day out with my Mam, Aunt and Fin, where I treated myself to a new smoothie cup as pictured above (from New Look), and ate cake…
Chocolate peanut butter cupcake from Pet Lamb Patisserie
Choc cherry green smoothie with kale
Fried eggs with avocado
Creamy porridge with berries, coconut and almond butter
Pulsin orange choc chip protein bar
Beef ragu with courgetti
Scrambled eggs with feta and avocado
With having family visiting this weeks been a little more indulgent than I’d like, the sugar is certainly creeping up which isn’t helping with my ability to handle the rough nights we’ve been having with Finley recently. Definitely a need to refocus next week, although I will say that cake and the other treats I’ve had were damn worth it!
- Monday – 5k run
- Tuesday – Rest
- Wednesday – Rest / walking round the shops
- Thursday – 15 minute morning yoga
- Friday – 3 x Davina 7 minute fit workouts
- Saturday – Rest
- Sunday – 4 miles – edited to add – DONE!
So last Sunday’s run didn’t happen as planned. I am a fair weather runner, no way I am going to do something I dislike anyway, in the rain and wind to. Thankfully Monday morning was perfect for running and I ticked off a good 5k on my training plan. Tomorrow I need to do 4 miles (edited to add – done and done, with only one little walk break whoop!) and really next week I need to start running more often as well. I didn’t make my usual Metafit as I was out and about on Wednesday, then on Friday Finley napped longer than usual so I decided to let him sleep and did a few Davina workouts back to back instead.
When I was out mid week I picked up some new leggings, these funky ones from New Look. They fit really well and feel nice and comfortable so will be great for yoga or Metafit.
My new yoga mat! I’ve been eyeing up these Magic Carpet Yoga Mats for ages and a combination of some surprise extra funds and a gift card for Urban Outfitters made me decide to get one. It is a beaut! Yes these babies are mega pricey, but they are a work of art. Also…
