Hello- I am well and truly into the swing of half term now.
This morning started with a level 2 Shred (boy, I have not done it for a while and I felt the upper body stuff especially), and then a run. I wanted to do some speedwork as a) I didn’t have long, and b), again have not done it for a few weeks. I went for a mile as a warm up, then spent about 15 mins going 20 counts fast, 20 counts slow (each count was about 6 steps), then another 10 mins or so as a cool down. I managed a pretty good pace- I managed 3.8 miles in 36 mins, my pace was very wiggly (because of the intervals) but it felt like a great workout. By the end of the last few intervals my lungs were bursting!
Once home I had a snack;
Some berry nuun, a new nakd bar (cocoa delight is possibly my new favourite) and a few cinnamon nuts left over from yesterday. Yum.
Then after a shower I had a quick lunch (nearly burnt it as was on the phone whoops)- roasted beetroot and pepper on bread with cream cheese;
Then I had to rush as I was getting my hair cut. I love getting my hair cut- I used to be all worried as I have very thick hair, and the stylist would always manage to persuade me to get layers or something, and then it would not work. But now I have a hairdresser that actually understands my hair, and it’s now quite a treat. 🙂 Last time I got a kind of fringe added in, as I am growing it long and wanted something interesting, so I had that trimmed again.
I was finding it hard to smile and take myown picture at the same time haha!
Anyway, after getting my hair cut I was free to roam the shops. I was after some boots for winter, and I wanted some which I could wear under trousers (I have chunky over-the-jeans ones) but that would also go with leggings and a dress. I found the perfect pair, but had to deliberate for ages in the shop as they were quite expensive. Tada;
Ok I also need to improve these skills but I could not work out another way of taking it myself! Close up for those who are interested;
I *heart* my new boots. 🙂
I also got some cheaper items;
I had used all my rainforest butter so jumped at the chance of getting some more. Some pumpkin puree from Waitrose (it was with all the tinned fruit in Waitrose not by the tinned veggies like I thought it would be) and some coconut milk- this stuff was lush- I had a sip (it actually tastes like coconut unlike coconut water) and then had it with nesquick as when I got home I realised I was very hungry. Did not have a big enough lunch!
I had fun shopping by myself today and I am much better on my own than with other people. I always get persuaded by friends to buy things that I am not keen on, or not sure about, plus I like to be in and out of a shop quickly and some friends like to spend ages! I like going shopping with friends if they are getting stuff, but for me I much prefer to shop alone (or actually, on the internet!). So, do you like to shop alone or with others?
