3.0km done for Friday!
In about 23 minutes.
Running to Nicki Minaj made me run harder than I would have, and I also enjoyed myself quite a bit :)
I ain’t gotta get a plaque, I ain’t gotta get awards
I just walk up out the door all the girls will applaud.
All the girls will come in as long as they understand
That I’m fighting for the girls that never thought they could win.
So in the end I did have yoga today.
We did heaps of hip openers, which feels so good, anytime of day, including 7am.
Except my inner ear has been playing up, and so anytime we had to look at the ceiling or bend at the hip my world started spinning. If it doesn’t get better over the weekend I guess it’s another doctors appointment for me. It is not normal to get dizzy when you’re lying down to sleep :(
Just had dinner, am now lying on the couch thinking about packing my gym bag for tomorrow and also chocolate.
45 minutes vinyasa yoga
Bacon & egg sandwich on rye
Tea & Kingston biscuit
Tuna, steamed veg & brown rice
Banana with pb and honey
Tuna/salmon pasta bake
In my dark office at 6:45am.
Thursday is yoga day but I had a vague feeling that it was cancelled, so I packed my gym bag (yoga days I just bring my work clothes) and now that I’m here at my desk my work calendar says we do have yoga.
But I still think we don’t.
It starts at 7:15am so I got some time to kill while I watch the door of the classroom for anyone else to arrive.
In other news I am wearing a sleeveless top because when running on a treadmill nobody noticed your armpits but when doing yoga it’s a different story.
Wed. Nes. Day.
⭐️no exercise ⭐️
🍴no great food🍴
And that’s about all for yesterday.
Bindi Irwin’s advice to young girls to embrace their make-up free selves sounds admirable but Kerri Sackville points out the giant flaw in the teen’s message.
Kerri Sackville writes (and I quote):
Besides, Bindi is wrong. The reality is that not all girls are pretty. And whilst that’s okay, because not everyone has to be pretty, many girls like a bit of makeup to make themselves feel better.
The reality is that not all girls are pretty.
That negativity just won’t fly.
Yesterday I had to bully myself out of bed, today I didn’t even bother to try.
Snoozed through 4 alarms and got up an hour late.
Some days I am really gung-ho about my workout plan, and then there’s days like this.
Almost didn’t get out of bed this morning for the gym. I really hate it when I have to bully myself to do something. I didn’t warm up, I didn’t do any complementary exercise, just got on the tready and did what I needed to. My run/jog was slower than I liked, I’m still getting the pains on the insides of my shins. I think I might need to get a spiky ball, I can’t run if it’s going to be painful. Also it totally slows me down, and makes me give up on my intervals way earlier. I’ll keep stretching and hope for the best for the rest of the week!
However I’m still pretty on schedule for my training, I’m on week three of the 8 week plan to do the 4km on the 31st of August.
Work was mediocre, and I’ve discovered that my favourite ballet flats are made of paper? Ha! Well maybe not but they’re very absorbent and so my feet stayed wet most of the day. Not ideal.
After work I went to the grocery store to pick up proteinz for dinner - but when I got home boyfriendman decided he wanted sushi so my dinner ideas will have to wait for another day.
25 min run/jog on treadmill
Tea, pear, scotch finger
6-inch steak sub
Handful of fresh peas
$36.50 worth of sushi train
Look! I didn’t have tuna for breakfast!
Monday went slow. I work a rotating roster of inside work, and then outside filing and searching. This week is an outside week and it’s very wet. There’s no point having an umbrella if it’s windy.
After work I had my course to go to and we learnt about probate law. And then I was reading this book on the way home (picked it up from the library on Saturday) and the second chapter is all about the character dealing with her fathers estate. SERENDIPITY.
Then I got home to a beautiful cooked dinner by my well trained boyfriendman. Yes, that’s three whole cloves of garlic which I ate with gusto.
(also, broccoli crown.)
Also I made him take unflattering photos of me for Maxine’s challenge thingy. Will sign up tomorrow methinks.
I should mention that after the photos were taken I sat on the couch and ate potato chips with my dog.
Sweet F.A., it’s Monday.
Edible coasters with peanut butter & a banana
Pea and ham soup & tuna (heh heh)
Cheese, crackers, hummus & nuts
3 fun size Turkish delight & tea
Rib eye roasted with veg & steamed broccoli
Two handfuls of salt and vinegar chips
Today was a pretty nice day? There was sunshine and I went to the farmers market and visited my grandparents as well as got to take puppy for a walk.
6km walk/jog with puppy along the tracks near home
Scrambled eggs with tomato & spinach
Handful of pork crackle (god I love having wog grandparents)
2 chocolate biscuits
Subway 6 inch with tuna and salami
Too much icecream with salted caramel sauce
Poopt. Posted to the wrong blog. Too tired yo fixit. Goodnight peeps
Haha. Okay yep time for bed.
Oh my, I have spent an entertaining last hour watching FreeLee the Banana Girl on YouTube. I admire her vibrancy in these videos, but I cannot get behind a diet that restricts in any way shape or form. She is a very passionate person though, so good on her I guess.
Marissa without and with makeup.
I don’t like wearing a lot, this is just bb cream, concealer, powder, bronzer, a little bit of eyeshadow & mascara.
I went out last night with old work friends and so actually put effort into my appearance.
Edit: oh and totally filled in my brows. I never used to do this and I now realise what an oversight that was.
Searing pain on the inside of my shins :(
Tried to run 2.5km on the dreadmill but only got about 700m in before the pain was too much. It’s not what I’m used to if it’s shin splints, I usually get a dull lingering ache right above the bone, where this was sharp and short. Bit of a poo day at the gym.
I have another 2.5km run planned for Sunday, which I will have to do out in the real world because I’m not driving all the way into the city to make use of the gym. Maybe running on the road will be different. Who knows.
10 minute warm up stationary bike
2.5km on the treadmill in 20:21
Bailed after this because I’m a sook and it was Friday.
Handful of mixed nuts
Chicken kara age with rice
Pink lady apple
Maccas for tea - Grand Angus medium meal
I think I’m one of those people who genuinely enjoys McDonalds, this was not a last resort, it was my first choice haha :)
Nothing much to report, I like Thursdays. Starting the day with yoga always puts me in a great mood.
Went out for dinner to Outback Jacks with the bffl and ate this monstrosity - Totally didn’t notice til now but my mash looks like boobies. They were as you would expect all good boobies to be, soft and velvety. And then we got icecream. Hells yeah.
Visited parents, cleaned out car for service on Friday, cuddled boyfriend and dogdog, then conked out in bed at midnight.
45 minutes vinyasa yoga
Shaved deli chicken
Leftover Mexican mince & avo
