1. My grandad is sick. He may be getting admitted to hospital tomorrow. I'm scared. I love my grandad very much. He is old, nearly 85, and going in to hospital and being sick tends to be quite serious at that age. It may be selfish, but I want him at my wedding. I hope he will be OK
2. I have this resubmission due on Wednesday. I have worked Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, and I have uni on Monday. That leaves Tueday to get this done. Not to mention my 10 other assignments that I haven't even looked at yet.
3. Mum has depression. It is 'flaring up' at the moment. Dealing with a parent with mental illness is stressful and time consuming. If I don't spend time with her, she thinks I don't love her, and spirals into a depressive state. My dad is away at the moment, so it is all on me.
4. No time to workout. My body is getting fat and weak again, but I literally have no time, not if I want to sleep 8 hours a night. I hope everything calms down soon.

Yesterday I got a fail, and after you fail you need a big fat A to pick you up. So here is mine
A - See. Its my big fat A
I ate breakfast. Toast and PB.
I snacked on popcorn and a muesli bar.
I only ate 2 chocolates from the box we were gifted at work. 2. Out of a possible 8. I know.
I had cruskits, hummus, feta and smoked chicken for lunch. Twas nice.
I ate dinner, which included veggies.
I haven't had dessert and frankly I don't want any. OK, I kinda want some, but I am too lazy to move off the couch and get some, so, haha I win.
I have started working on my resubmission of the assignment that I F-worded. Insert your own F word, more than one fits.
I talked to my work mum about my problems and she told me she understands and wishes she could help. Then told me to harden up. Love that woman.
So I had a good day. No exercise, but I worked during all daylight hours and CBF going to the gym at this hour. And I didn't want to and thats OK with me. Next week I will get back into a routine.
So, yesterday can kiss my big fat A.

Today wasn't the best of days. Boyfriend decided to surprise me by taking me out for breakfast. No biggie, I could make good choices. Ended up taking me to McDonalds. Yikes. Lunch was good, but too much snacking and then the boyfriend made frosting and I ate some. Yeah, temptation and me don't go well together.
Tomorrow will be better!
I have uni, 10-5. Here is the plan
Get up at 8am.
Eat half a banana.
Go for a run (30min ish)
Breakfast - Other half of banana and 1 piece of toast with PB
Morning snack - Muesli bar
Lunch - Salad with chicken and feta (my chickpeas are all gone :( )
Afternoon snack: Popcorn
In car, before gym: Trail mix
Go to boxing class. ACTUALLY GO!
Home, sensible dinner and bed.
I'm going to take my gym stuff with me so I won't even go home, so there are no excuses. I'll be a bit early for my class, but I can go on a bike or something until it starts. Extra exercise won't hurt, I'm sure.
I will have an A+ day tomorrow, I will have an A+ day tomorrow...

Today I would give myself an A.
Breakfast: 1 piece of toast with PB
Breakfast 2: Soy vanilla latte. This is where the minus comes from. I have an 8am class, can ya blame me!?
Lunch: Same salad as yesterday (smoked chicken, feta, roasted chickpeas with assorted veg) and popcorn
Snack: 2 lite cruskits with hummus
Dinner (TBC - To be consumed): Baked lamb chop, oven fries and veggies or a salad
Dessert: Mini chocolate bar (Love these. Perfect size for something sweet. But for every one I eat Russell eats 4!)
AND I WENT FOR A RUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
My first run in 8 months!!!!
And I rocked it!!!!!!!
I kinda followed the rookie 5K your way plan. Kinda.
Plan: 4 intervals of 1 minute running, 4 min walking
Me: 5 intervals of 1.5 - 2 minutes running, 2-3 min walking. 5 minutes walking to warm up and 5 to cool down. I just lost track of time with the running, and by the time I thought it was time to walk I had done more than a minute. I just carried on until the next tidy number (.30 or .00). I also caught my breath quicker than I thought, so didn't use the whole 4 minutes of walking. Its all about going at your own pace!!
I finished 3.3km in 30ish minutes.
I was going to go to boxing tonight, but I CBF. The run was enough and after 4 weeks off I don't wanna push it too much!
