My foot is not much better. Google diagnosis aside, I think I may have a lesser spotted (on a Tub anyway) overuse injury going on. The solution? Rest. Hmm… Easier said than done when you work in a rather large factory. I have tried not to spend too much time on it. Exercise for Juneathon was shopping. I’m hoping that counts – it got my heart rate up, as hobbling is surprisingly hard work. I suspect it won’t count, and in that case, I am unable to offer anything in lieu.
As we all know, my eating habits have gone completely to pot (or rather, to the various takeaway outlets in my town). In a bid to address this, I buried my nose in the latest Slimming World magazine. I’d bought it at group last week, but I hadn’t actually got to the point of reading it. I’m still not finished with it – I read a couple of the stories, and got as far as the meal planner. I decided that probably one of the best things I could do would be to follow a meal plan for the week.
Each month, the Slimming World magazine puts a weekly plan in, sometimes based on green or red days, but this one has been based on the extra easy plan. Helpfully, they also put the recipes in along with a shopping list.
This is a good thing – I haven’t had to think about what to cook at all. Things also won’t get stale this week, as we’re eating different things every day. Don’t get me wrong, it’s cost a reasonable amount in Tesco to get to this point, and that is motivating me not to waste the food we bought.
I have also decided, pending recovery of my foot, to go back to Week 1 of the Hal Higdon 10k novice plan this week and build up some running confidence again. Tonight should have been a strength and stretch night, but there is little chance of that happening now (especially seeing as Game of Thrones has returned to our screens).
I’m hoping to report a happier foot tomorrow!
