Happy Tuesday - The weeks are flying by at the moment and I am sure Christmas will be here before we know it.
Here in England it was a lovely long bank holiday weekend. As traditional with most bank holidays in England the weather was rubbish!! We have definitely missed summer here and as my husband he wants a refund!! We have a couple of weeks off coming up and I can’t wait.
Last week I had a lovely birthday and was so pleased with all my lovely gifts. I can not wait to test out my new cycling cloths, especially the bottoms as I have never used padded bottoms.
Saturday I decided to bake a lovely Victoria sponge cake as my best friend Angela and her husband was coming over.
It was so good to see her and have a good old catch up. She bought me a lovely spotty top from Fat Face that I love.
We went to Whitby for the day on Sunday and it was lovely. I woke up with a really sore shoulder and neck and it is still sore but thankfully not as bad. The sun was shining but there was a chilli wind. We had a lovely walk around, stopped for fish and chips and watched a few children catching fish.
We had a fish and chips (small portion) and it was lovely.
Monday was a lovely chill out day. I didn’t get out on my bike which was gutting but the weather was shocking and my shoulder was really playing up. I have decided to make some Christmas presents this year and finally finished crocheting a scarf I started last winter!! I also started cross stitching a card and forgot how much I enjoyed it. I love home made gifts and so do some of my friends. I watched the film Hook and really relaxed for once. I made Paella for dinner and for a first attempt it was not bad at all! It was a little high in calories but very tasty.
As you know I have been really struggling with my weight and with another week of staying the same I knew action was needed. After reading a few blogs and watching the Hairy Bikers on TV I have decided to try the good old fashion calorie counting and found a great app called My Fitness Pal. I have started counting and realise there are days when I go really over and days when I am really under. I will keep you posted on how I get on and if anyone wants to follow me let me know and I will tell you the info you need.
My fitness aims this week are all neck dependant!
Tuesday – Lunch run
Wednesday – Lunch run and spinning
Thursday – Rest day
Friday – Lunch run
The weekend I am really desperate to get out on my bike and test out my new gear.
How was your weekend and what are your fitness aims?
