Busy + Day's 3,4,5 Covered.

Blah! Gosh sometimes I'm so... scatty. I have plans in my head but I completely forget about other plans that are happening, and so the head plans are pushed out because the other plans have been properly made, and then I don't understand why the head plans didn't happen, even though I didn't have time because other plans were taking place! ...

Okay. Friday. No workout. This was NOT planned because I FORGOT about plans that were CONCRETE. I booked tickets months ago for the hubby and I to see Roy 'Chubby' Brown (Not everyone's cup of tea comedian) ... and I didn't realise it was over in Manchester. So we had to finish work, and get over to Manchester in time for the show. We also wanted to have a meal, as we'd planned to make this a little 'us' night back when we booked. To make it easier on ourselves, we booked a last minute hotel room in Manchester, so we rushed out of work, rushed to our hotel, changed, rushed to the show, went for a meal, got back to hotel and crashed out. We were so tired. Full week at work. I'd brought my workout stuff to do a hotel room workout before the show but time was zapped away too fast!!! In the morning it was another rush, rise and shine, breakfast, work (for the hubby) and last minute shopping for me!

BUT - There's a slight positive here. I did eat a meal on Friday night - but my breakfast in the hotel was SUPER choiced. I had a fruit salad plus a wholemeal piece of toast with honey. MAJOR proud of this because I can NEVER usually resist a full cooked breakfast on offer... and being in a hotel kind of puts you in the 'holiday' frame of mind, yet I was SENSIBLE! 10 points Steph!!!

Saturday. Good food choices again. Again I had the option of having a naughty lunch with my sister and niece... But I chose a 'superfood' salad consisting of seeds, quinoa, fruits & berries, AND I didn't use the dressing either. 10 points Steph!!!

Fail Saturday night, as the husband and I ordered in Indian food. :-/ Also no workout... Laziness set in Saturday night. So, no workout Friday or Saturday.

Sunday morning (Happy 65th Birthday Mum!) I expected to go to work, but it turned out I didn't have to (Yay!) - and I'd already done a quick 4 minute workout (day3) BodyRock plus the abs bonus, as I was stretched for time... found out I didn't have to work AFTER my shower, so didn't want to get sweaty again and need another shower.

Spent the day at my Mum's with my family, eating Mum's homemade foods. Stew, crusty bread, scones, birthday cake, oh and ... CHEESE PIE. I did not resist Mum's cooking at all. Thing was though, I felt great. I put something nice on and got a lot of compliments, and my good training through the week made me feel better and leaner and plain good.

Oh, I have some pics from yesterday... Let's see...

This is my outfit I was pleased with.

Calling Mrs. Vain, but I was happy with how my hair turned out yesterday too -

My lovely parents -

One of my Big Bruv's -

Aaaand of course. The epic cheese pie. My apologies.

Hah! Bit of a picture entry going on now! :P

So anyways - Monday!
I rushed to work. Blah. No breakfast. So for lunch I had Subway. I had sweet onion chicken terryaki - which is BETTER for me than other subs. PLUS... guess what? I so badly wanted a footlong sub - BUT i ordered and settled for a 6 inch sub. Some points for that? Yes please!

Really tired getting home as yesterday was such a long and lovely day (with the odd glass of champagne) and also I have had the sniffles all day long... so feeling a bit blah. Got changed and did Workouts 4 and 5 of BodyRock's Christmas challenge, and the abs bonus again. I improved the abs scores, so that's goooooooood. Also, I feel great now and am glad I did something.

I'm a little behind on C25K as I should have done Day 3 by now but haven't. Hopefully tomorrow.

I've gone on enough now! Time for a (magic) NightNurse and bed. Please go away cold!!

    You look like a bodyROCKSTAR my friend! Love your whole outfit! I especially love how your earrings stand out with your awesome haircut.

    You have a lovely family - everyone looks so happy! And I've never heard of cheese pie and I'm kind of glad I haven't (I'd probably demolish the whole pie by myself LOL)

    Great job on making the right individual choices - those add up to be one incredible movement towards your goals!
