Holy cardio, Batman! In the past 3 days I have gone on an hours hike, a 2 hour walk and done 2 boxing classes, back to back! As well as a weights session on Tuesday. Whew! The holidays don't come around that often, so I am kicking it up a notch for a week, then we will go back to the regular programming.
I drove to McDonalds with the boyfriend (he can eat what he wants, I'm not his mother) and told myself that I could get a caramel sundae, my fave. I got there and I didn't feel like it! All I wanted was to go home and finish my fruit salad of kiwifruit, orange and peach. So I did. Less calories and better for me.
I got a new sports bra today. Those babies are expensive! But considering my old bra wasn't... supportive of my running, it was time. Seriously, half the time I thought my boobs were gonna fly up and hit me in the face.
Memo to past me: Just because you could get into it doesn't mean it fit! I wore a top today that I wore at my heaviest weight, because it is a bit stretchy, so I thought it fit. Yeah...It didn't. It looked nice today, but I dread to think how awful it must have looked 7kg (16lb) ago!
I am house sitting soon, for 3 weeks! My nana is going away and wants someone to feed her cat and generally look after her house. I offered to do it because A) I need some space from my mum. I love her, but she is hard work! and B) It is my old house! I lived there for 4 years before I moved back home and nana moved in.
And thats my life in a blog post!

Thanks to the encouragement and support of my wonderful spark friends, I have registered for the 5k RUN! On the 13th of May I will be running my first 5k! Thank you so much for your kind words, and for kicking my butt into doing this. Now, I just need to kick my runs up a notch and I should be fine.
In other news, the scale can't get enough of the low numbers this week! I have lost another 400g, which put me at 80.0kg this morning! That is a loss of 1kg this month, and we are only 10 days in! Considering I lost 600g last month, I think I'm off to a good start. I haven't done anything different (except eat easter chocolate...maybe that's the secret?!) so I have no idea why I have lost all of a sudden. I'm certainly not complaining!
I have been walking a lot these past 2 days. Yesterday I went on a hour long hike with the boyfriend, and we had to walk 15 minutes to and from the trail. It was fun, but man did my butt hurt this morning! Then today I went on a 2 hour, 7km walk with my best friend. It was nice to do something active together instead of sitting in a cafe drinking too much coffee. Our wallets and waistlines thanked us!

OK, so I like running, and do 3-5k about once a week. I walk/run and I am not the fastest person out. But I like it, and I am improving. I have done around 5 races, but I have always walked. Now, there is a 5k in a month. It is just down the road from my house, the course is easy and flat and it isn't expensive. The boyfriend thinks I should do it if I want to. So, I was going to register and I had to pick either 5k run or 5k walk. And I hesitated. Sure, I know I can walk it, but can I run it? Or even walk/run it?
I really want to do this, but I am scared of the unknown.
Encouragement/input is welcome! Should I do this 5k? Anyone wanna come and do it with me? I'll chip in for the entry fee, but the transport to Auckland/NZ is on you

I run/walk/waddle my 3.75k route in 35 minutes. I want to do it in 30 minutes.
In other news, eating today has been crap, the boyfriend changed his mind about coming on a walk with me and the gym had already closed by the time he made this decision. So, rest day it is. Back to the gym tomorrow.
