I have been wondering whether to post. I haven’t done much over the last couple of days, and that’s kind of the reason I don’t want to post. But, life isn’t plain sailing, and ultimately I have started this blog for some public accountability.
A quick recap – last week was rubbish. I had an awful week at work, felt tired, started getting a sore throat, had to change my new shoes, and didn’t manage to run. At all. The 5 minutes before my feet went numb on Tuesday don’t count. I made it to kettlebells though, so I haven’t been a complete sloth.
Food wise. Well, that’s been even worse. Talk about going completely off the boil! I hadn’t eaten well at work, we hadn’t eaten well at night. I’m an emotional eater, and this week left me drained so I “comforted” myself with stupid foods. Add into the mix a murder mystery evening with my mum and sister (involving a 3 course dinner – nice, but not exactly low in calories), and this truly has been an “off plan” kind of week.
I am annoyed at myself still, so I am going to be making a list of food for next week and sticking stadfastly to it. My sister came over this morning and we got talking about budgets, including food budgets. I don’t like to waste my food, but I have that realisation that actually, I have a reasonable amount of wasted food from last week. I may as well have thrown the money straight into the bin. Silly girl.
I’m planning on some tasty, easy meals (this week threatens to be shoddy too in the worklife stakes), including some camping friendly food for the weekend. Shopping trip is planned for tomorrow.
We’re off camping this weekend coming, so I’ll need to get my brain in gear for what to take. I cannot go through this month without breaking into the next stone barrier, and camping cannot hold me back. On the thought of camping, I’m hoping that I may have made life easier on myself, as I bought a power lead so we can have electricity in the tent – that means heating! We’ll need it, as it is still very cold at night, and isn’t showing signs of getting warmer.
I’m off to one of my bridemaid’s houses now to talk wedding planning and drop her dress to her.
