I somehow thought that I had loads of free time, but in fact I have been super busy these last few days. Wednesday I went out and did my Audiofuel run before breakfast, as I had loads to do. This was good, but hard work- probably a little further than I normally would run before any food. Plus it was warm, but I did take water with me.
Then it was a busy day of going into work, a quick rush to the shops (not to put a downer on it, but I need to find something to wear to Discovery Cove- swim shopping is what I dread the most) and then cheering myself up at the allotment!
See this bed at the bottom? Well it goes the whole length of the allotment and that was what I spent a lot of the 3 hours digging up! And that pile of rubbish is what the lady left behind- after clearing 8 tubs of the stuff I dug up I could not be bothered to move her stuff. Plus I was a bit worried that there might be a frog or a hedgehog living in it.
This is it from the other side- I was not going to attempt digging up the potatoes (they cover about 1/3 of it I think) and apparently the lady is coming this weekend to take away her shed and dig up the potatoes. This picture makes it look like there is loads to do, but honestly it is just the potatoes now!
Thursday I did some yoga before breakfast (yoga for weightloss- I downloaded a few other ones which looked good, and at my level as this was a beginners one). Then I had some friends over. I was pretty pleased (food related) as we all bring something, and tend to snack and chat- often I get tempted by the crisps, nuts, cakes etc. But this time I had a Food Doctor pitta, some crudites, half of a berry crumble bar, and a lot of watermelon.
Watermelon just looks so refreshing 🙂 Love it!
Then it was body pump time, and actually I was really pleased. We always do a stretch at the end (for the glutes I think)- you lay on your back with one leg up in the air, then you cross that leg over the other one, reach through and hold on to the other leg. Not sure if I have explained it? Anyway, I have always struggled with this, being inflexible,and have always had to hold my leg first, then hook the other leg over the top, but the last couple of weeks I have managed to do it properly, and I am wondering if the yoga is actually making a little difference. It will be a long time til I can put my forehead on my knee though!
Anyway, I was hungry after that, so I went for a Moma porridge pot, as I have been sent a few Moma products to try and I could not wait for breakfast!
Verdict? Delicious. It is ready made bircher muesli- this one is made with yoghurt, apple juice, oats, apples, peaches, agave nectar, rice starch and lemon juice. It was lovely and very filling. Yum.
Today I had another pot for breakfast;
This one was a blueberry one. Then I was off for a 10 mile run (I have a family wedding this weekend so would not be able to go out tomorrow or Sunday morning)- this was hard as my legs were getting stiff from body pump last night (I also drank a lot of water before I left so I had to stop at the toilets in the park!). It took me longer than last time, 1hr50 something, but with the stop that is not too bad.
After a snack and a shower I was off to meet a friend for lunch- we went to Starbucks and I was excited to see they sell their chai teabags!!!!!!!!!!!!
Woo hoo!!!! I mean, perhaps they have for ages, but I have not looked/ noticed them before. After resisting ordering Teapigs for ages, I am yet again adding to my tea collection.
Then I was off for a haircut (plus buying a dress for the wedding tomorrow- last minute much?).
So there we go. Some exercise, some socialising, and some de-stressing.
So nice weekend plans? The wedding will be keeping us busy as we have a family lunch on Sunday too. Hope you all have a good one.
Laters dudes 🙂

I’m loving melon at he moment. It’s just so refreshing and perfect for these warmer months. Oh and that Moma porridge sounds great!
Yeah melon is just so refreshing- love it 🙂
I’ve never seen those Moma products before will have to keep an eye out for them! Sadly I’m working this weekend but before work on Sunday I’ll be taking part in a sponsored 300lb tire push!
Have a great time at the wedding!
I know what you mean; I’ve been off this week and have been busier than I am at work in some ways… looks like you’ve been flat out at the allotment, it’ll be so worth it though 🙂
And I bet that is the yoga; great when you can see results like that!
did you have to hide that Tea Purchase before Andy spotted it?????????
I missed that you had an allotment, I take it you’ve only just got it? How exciting, this time next year you’ll be wondering what to do with all your excess veggies!
Laura- that tyre push sounds like hard work, but also a bit crazy!
Eleanor- you are right all the work will be worth it.
Rose- well I did show him (he does love Sharbucks Chai too)but he did also say “we do need more tea” with perhaps a hint of sarcasm!!
Those Moma pots look good! I agree that days off can sometimes get really busy, but I usually try to make an effort to relax a little bit.
This weekend I’m visiting a cute new puppy, carb loading and then doing a 10k race on Sunday … and then refuelling afterwards 🙂
Oh I love watermelon so much!
I always think “2 whole days off woooo hooo” but then I end up with tons of things to do!
I would love to try those moma puddings! They look good! Enjoy your weekend- sounds like you have it all planned out 🙂
Those Moma products look amazing! I wish I could find something like that where I live…finding oats are a stretch.
