Good Morning, Happy Sunday!
What a week I have had, definitely a week of huge highs and lows. I attempted to seriously step it up this week after meeting with the lovely Bek from Second To None she’s in charge of the Ladies and is a wealth of knowledge.
So Monday morning after walking Miss A to school I was full of energy. Like bouncing off the walls drunk a lot of redbull full of energy. So I just kind of kept going. Walking at a nice steady pace.
Here’s a summary of my walk thanks to runkeeper:
It’s a pretty good effort if you ask me. I was in a great positive mood when I started. and when I got home from the walk I was even more pumped with energy. I didn’t want to stop. I hadn’t had my brekky at this point so I made a shake and whilst i was drinking it i dragged my bike down off the rack.
My poor neglected bike whose use has been for the sole purpose of being a gathering place for spider webs and cobwebs. The tires were a little flat nothing a quick pump didn’t fix, I did a quick test ride to check the brake and gear were still good enough and off I went.
A different route to my walk. Its was alright, I think next time I ride I will go a little further. The wind how ever was nasty and I spent most of the ride against it. I got home and by this stage my legs (and bum) were screaming in protest. And me well I was well and truly stuffed.
That evening at cheerleading I got two of the other mums off the bleachers and we had a casual brisk walk around the footy fields. It was much nicer than sitting in the wind.
Summary: 10.64km walk 5.97km Ride.
I felt amazing, I made sure i kept moving all day so my muscles didn’t seize. I also soaked in a epsom salt bath that night. Mentally it felt great and fatigue wise I didn’t feel all that tired.
Tuesday was a rest day. I kind of think I deserved it.
Wednesday I woke up feeling very shitty, congested, headachey and a little run down. I still laced up my joggers walked Alex to school and set off again on my route for another 7km walk.
As you can tell it was another terrible winter day in Townsville.
I didn’t feel to bad after my walk. I certainly felt a little better and definitely not worse. Another 7km is not a bad effort.
Wednesday was a scheduled rest day.
Friday I had planned another walk/run, unfortunately this didn’t happen. Between the stress of job interview, the build up of the on and off rain we have had all week, not to mention said rain gives me heyfever (yeah I know)After a shitty night sleep, by Friday morning I had probably the worst migraine I have had this year. I woke up and it was manageable, two x day strength nurofen and I drove Alex to school and then did the groceries. By the time I had gotten home from the grocery shop. The nurofen hadn’t word and the migraine had reached its nasty peak. Panadeine Forte and maxalon, If THAT didn’t work I knew it was a trip to the Dr’s for the kind of stuff that’s only injectable.
Thankfully it worked by the time it was time to pick Alex up from school I was much better. We had an early day and night.
I have this weekend been taking it easy. I don’t want to push myself too hard. Weight wise I am the same.
I am not sure if its my head but I feel slightly slimmer particularly around my hips/tummy which is why starting today I am going to take my measurements weekly.
So here we go:
Bust: 97 cm
Waist: 89.5 cm
Hip: 115.5 cm
Thigh: 64 cm
In summary this week has been pretty good considering the illness. I don’t know if it’s because I was unwell but the only problem I have had is more lack of appetite than anything. I really have not been hungry at all. I will try pop in to see Mick at Second to None Nutrition and see what he thinks.
A slight speed bump but still not quite put off yet. Life Changes NOW!
