One of those days!

Yesterday was just one of those days. I got up really tired and was just in one of those lazy moods. I just wanted to sit on the sofa, drink tea and watch TV all day. Obviously, with a 9 month old that never happens but I did stay in my PJs all day and just pottered around the house playing and snuggling Sienna.

I had a run ‘scheduled’ at 5:45pm with my Dad, he usually runs 10k so I was a bit nervous! I die at 5k but wanted to push myself. Well, that did not happen. I don’t think i drank and ate enough and I just did not have any energy at all, I think that is because it’s nearly that ‘time of the month’. I always lack energy the week leading up to it. I couldn’t get in the zone either and just wanted to stop every 2 mins. But i did complete my 5k even if it took me 35 minutes! Although my average pace was 6:27 which is similar to what I do when me & Warren run 5k. So even though I stopped to walk a lot more, when I was running, I was running faster because it averaged out. Do you get me?!

So even though it was harder than normal, I guess I still did ok. We are going again on Saturday to see if I can improve & hopefully I’ll fuel myself better. It also say I burnt 390 calories which I don’t believe?! I’ll have to check that my weight is correct on it.

This morning I’m just chilling and doing some housework and then Sienna & I are walking to the park later and meeting Warren’s mum, sister & her boyfriend for playtime & dinner while Warren is at football. That should be lovely, so nice to get out!

At the moment Sienna is napping & I’m having a nice cup of hazelnut coffee from Beanies & chocolate from ohso. Perfect 🙂

Question: Do you ever find you’re not in the mood to workout?

Sweating it out!

I did it, I sweated it out & I feel much better! I actually had sweat dripping down my eyes! I did the Blogilates Gangnam style workout x8, it was good and so much fun, I can’t believe i have never done that one before! I’m much happier now I am back to feeling normal.

I forgot to mention earlier than I was sent more goodies on Friday from Clearspring.  Image

 

I have already tried the Blueberry spread, it is SO good and I am currently munching on a pack of the roasted seeds and soya with cranberry, delicious. I am yet to bust out the coconut oil, I’m a little scared as I don’t know what to do with it?! What do you use it for? Recipes? Let me know!

I have also been LOVING hemp milk in my coffee. It is SO good, so nutty and creamy and scrummy. Oo get in ma belleh!!
