This week has been pretty good, busy but good. This weekend was supposed to be our first restful weekend in two months, what with a wedding in Scotland, visiting James' mum, cat-sitting - all very enjoyable and fantastic but it is nice just to have a weekend at home. With James working every third week we haven't been able to do much. Nothing ever runs smoothly as my Gran has a fall yesterday morning and she's now in hospital, unfortunately she made quite a mess so her bedroom needs to be stripped but she herself is doing okay, nothing is broken and hopefully the rest in hospital will do her good. This may mean that my two weeks holiday will need to be cancelled, we're not going away but were planning to spend two weeks at home relaxing. If my parents cancel their holiday then I'll need to cancel mine, it can't be helped, gran comes first but nothing is certain as she is possibly in a better state for being in hospital than if they would be going right now anyway. I am just about ready to crack though, I'm at breaking point, I'm seriously burnt out so I desperately need the rest, I'll just have to wait and see.
Other than that everything else has run to plan this week. I worked out Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday (although I forgot to log on Wednesday as I had to run off half way through but I promise I did work out), I managed nearly 60 minutes of my new workout from The Firm - 12 Minute Calorie Blast as it's new to me I did take it easy but it was still very hardcore but also very fun!
I will do my yogalates this afternoon after visiting gran in hospital. Hopefully I'll also meet my goal of 5,000 steps a day at the weekend. Speaking of steps, I've managed over 10,000 Monday to Friday including slightly more on my rest days. I had hoped to make closer to 12,000 a few more days but I did okay.
Food wise I've come under each day, not too under which is good. No fantastic healthy home cooked recipes this week, yet again a bit too busy and completely burnt out. A bit obsessed with baked potatoes at the moment which isn't too bad.
I've been feeling more toned and my clothing has been fitting a lot better. I know it's slow progress but I really feel it's worth it.
Short Term GoalsI just want to get through this week, I'd like to manage the same amount of steps before really aiming for 12,000 a day. I want to keep up with the exercise. Now depending on what happens I might be having two weeks off, this will mean not logging my food for a couple of weeks, I won't be going overboard I usually take the approach of healthy breakfast, moderately healthy lunch and whatever for tea when on holiday - even the staycations. In the past I've felt that I've spent too much time when on holiday focussing on keeping everything up that the holiday has flown by so I want to keep it simple by not logging my food but keeping up with exercise. My steps will also be on the down side but this will just be for the two weeks, I expect to get back on track straight after. This all depend on whether my parents do go away though.
Long Term GoalsStill thinking about Halloween and Christmas!
