After a bit of a rocky start with My Fitness Pal, where my tracking didn’t really happen one week, I managed to put on weight before I lost it (genius!). I am now pleased to report that I am at a net loss. Hurrah! It has been an “okay” kind of week with food. I have tried to eat more mindfully, as I am horrendous for just wolfing down my meals without really chewing or tasting them. The queen of mindless eating if you will!
I’ve really been struggling for things to write about on my blog lately. “Tub” is still tubby, and “on the run” is more “sat on my bum”, so it’s quite hard to think of relevant things to write about. However, as a brief post, I thought I’d share a couple of things that are inspiring me right now:
- My sister – She took up running after me, but has beaten me at all running related things. She’s got a 30 minute 5k under her belt, a few new knee scars from a fall (thankfully, otherwise, mostly injury free), and has now signed up for her first ever 10k in May. She’s running for Parkinson’s UK at Highclere on 11th May 2014. I can’t wait to hear how she does!
- James – Matt’s best man at our wedding is competing in the EC Powerman Duathlon in Holland today.
- The London Marathon. I am always amazed by peoples’ ability to run for 26.2 miles, especially as I would struggle to run a full 2.62 miles right now. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed reading other bloggers’ recaps on the Brighton and Paris marathons, and can’t wait for the London reviews to come up in the next few days.
Oh… and happy birthday to my running shoes. It has been a year since I bought them.
