Weekly Meal Plan & Weigh In June Week 5

After a couple of really bad weeks I finally got my shit together last week and had a great week on plan. I was feeling pretty confident by the time Saturday morning came around and it was time for my weigh in. All the organisation paid off and I was down 1.5lbs which once again brings me to half a pound above goal. As soon as weigh in was done, it started another weekend off plan as I was off to a wedding!

Weekly Meal Plan & Weigh In June Week 4

I can't believe the weeks are flying by so fast, the end of June is pretty much upon us. I had to do a double take when putting the title on this - week 4 already! I think time is going much quicker at the moment as things are so manic. I really don't feel like I have appreciated June at all. I have let the stress take over.

Meal Plan & Weigh In: June Week 3

I missed last weeks meal plan due to the long weekend and the mini marathon. I did a rough one in my head but I didn't write it down and I kind of just winged the week and I really noticed the lack of organisation! I had leftovers from a BBQ for my lunches and the portion sizes were all wrong. I found myself so hungry in work in the afternoons. By the time the evenings came around I was finding it so hard to stay on track. By the time Friday came around I was over it and was off plan all day. With the previous Bank Holiday weekend being a total blow out, in the end I only had 3 on track days and I knew a gain was inevitable on Saturday morning. So there was no surprise that I was up 1.5lbs, if anything I was surprised it wasn't more.

Mini Marathon 2016!

I've been really bad at blogging lately and this post should have gone up earlier on this week! I have a few posts in the pipeline so I will catch up soon! 

Last monday I completed my 9th Womens Mini Marathon with 35,000 other women. I have so much love for this event! There is always such an amazing atmosphere on the day and along the course and this year it was no different. My one issue has always been the organisation of the starting pens. No matter what you always have people who insist on starting in the joggers, fast joggers (and even runners) section who have absolutely no intention of even attempting to jog. You also have people who decide they are going to start early to get a bit of a head start. All of these people just get in the way of the people attempting to run it and I think there needs to be something done to combat this. Not only is it frustrating for those trying to get a good time, its also dangerous for the walkers having people push past them to get on their way. If people could just start in the sections relevant to them and be conscious of people running it would make things a whole lot better.
