05/03/2014 – Finest Fitness

Apart from cycling and running I don’t talk much about my general fitness goings on much on here, I’m trying to not talk about it all the time..

However if you know me in real life, you’ll know between burger eating and painting my nails, I’m quite keen on the gym! Wednesdays are my favourite day, preparing for my rest day tomorrow, I fit a lot in. I run or cycle to work, then do 45 mins weight lifting class or in the gym, then sprint training before showering and heading to work! Today I beat my running personal best at 2 miles in 15 minutes, apparently I’d now get into the army!

Then at lunchtime it’s a sneaky 20 minute ab workout. All in time for cycling home and having a well deserved rest the next day!

03/03/2014 – Simple Eggy Things

Such a full day today, so thought I better start it off on a high!
A quick 5km run at 6am, followed by this amazingly tasty breakfast before showering. I’m trying to up my protein and lower my carbs, but it’s just so hard!

Work was lovely, then back home for dinner with Maria. I needed to take today easy todayas I’m running up 600ft of stairs tomorrow morning for charity! Eep!

11/02/2014 – Back to Greens

After a weekend of only slightly watching what I eat (watching myself eat 10 mini kievs more like), I’m back to my healthy ways, with a bonus insanely swish new lunch box! Feeling better already from eating veggies again, it’s now time to have an evening to relax..

28/01/2014 – Stick to it

It’s soon to be a month of dieting, and you get to that struggling point, or at least I do! Offered an apple by a colleague to keep me going but I need to improve on my work snacks!

First day back on my bike since Thursday and my knee feels ok so I’m ploughing on in hope it doesn’t get worse. These wintery evenings are getting the best of me, you can tell it’s the end of a long financial month – lots of cosy movie nights in with friends 🙂

Earlyish Saturday start today for a bit of cycling around tooting bec with a friend. Sausage sandwiches, bird spotting and cycling makes for a lovely Saturday morning. Then, of course, more GTA. I’m going to start lying soon about how much time I spend on that game.

18/10/2013 – Desirable Diet

I try most of the time to maintain my weight or drop a couple pounds when I get too mcdonalds happy.
Well, today was definitely not a healthy day. It stared off with cookie crisp cereal (it’s amazing), followed by a bike ride into London to try out shake shack! That was lush. It’s quite expensive but I’d say worth it as a treat once in a while. But I won’t be ditching my Big Macs anytime soon, that’s for sure!
Lovely relaxing day with my mate Richard, followed by more GTA (I’m seriously hooked, send help)

17/10/2013 – Fuzzy Nails

Freelance gig has finished so back home pottering around today, a day off to myself. I’m not sure if I’ll get bored of these soon, I’ve already painted my nails three times today, with the photo being my favourite… Tum tee tum… What to do next.

28/09/2013 – Final Frock Fitting

Travelling up to Wilmslow today for my final dress fitting before my cousins wedding next weekend! It’s very near now and I’m excited to be one of three bridesmaids.
Quick journey up in first class Virgin train, disappointed the service is so different from the weekday trains, but hey ho, better than nothing, and the space is great.
The other photo is from the walk into Wilmslow centre – the gardens in this area are pristine, I thought this was fake before a closer look!
