Here’s a picture of Friday’s lovely sunset to tantalise your eyes! Otherwise I don’t have much to say, particularly about running and fitness!
But this road isn’t far from our new home and I’m looking forwards to running down it at sunrise in the future! We will probably be moving there mid January.
Building a house, even if you aren’t physically doing it is time consuming and demanding- it’s like having an extra job! It takes up all your evenings, weekends and conversation. We have been so busy-This weekend I made it to the hairdresser for the first time since April!
however, enough is enough. The end is in sight and I’m looking forwards to living in our new home instead of thinking about it!
So what will life be like?
For the last year I have taken Friday afternoons off in return for working a couple of 10 hour days. I’ve used the time for site visits but I am hoping that in future I will devote that time to my health and fitness and not be tempted to take on more responsibility at work.
I’ve made a start this weekend with my diet. Over the last few months we have slowly slipped into more ready meals, take aways, and for me sugary snacks. Inspired by cee jay I decided to kick the refined sugar. On Sunday I bought and prepped lots of veg, some meat and got the slow cooker out!
I also bought some frozen berries- (much cheaper than fresh) to have with my breakfast yoghurt.
The first 24 hours was fine, but at 5pm tonight the cravings set in whilst I was still at work. Womanfully I resisted the biscuits and cakes in the office and tucked into a healthy chicken and veg casserole when I got home later! So 2 days down…. and I have prepared some boiled eggs and veg batons for tomorrow as emergency snacks.
Sadly I didn’t squeeze in a run this weekend, but I’m working up to it!!
Just watching the news. Donald Trump is now making inroads on the national parks. Sadly I fear he is going to cause damage that can’t be undone.
And so to bed. Wishing you all a healthy and happy life! Jx
