So be prepared for a couple
You'll be glad to know that life didn't get in the way of my exercise or eating routine
Firstly I'm going to update you on my Marathon Weight Loss Challenge
I lost another pound!! I'm totally pleased with that!! Who wouldn't be?!
My eating has been pretty good, consisting of mainly omelettes and lean protein with salad which has been great during my hectic time because it takes no time at all to throw it together and it's healthy and filling.
My aim for next week is to continue with my weight loss - I've only lost 1.2lbs since the start of this Weight Loss Challenge so I'm not sure I'll be able to lose the half marathon I'd originally aimed to do but once again as far as I'm concerned if I lose weight I'm a winner aren't I?!
It's also Paul's birthday at the weekend and we're going out for dinner so I'm going to try and up my exercise to counter balance that meal - it's one of my self proclaimed 'special occasions' where I let myself enjoy what I want for dinner i.e. I'm going to have dessert.
The exercise shouldn't be too much of a problem though because I have The Boring Runner's Virtual 5K this Saturday!! My first 'official' 5K ever!! So excited! I'm going to make my race bib during the week and I've already got my route planned out - I've not ever run a full 5K without walking in places before but I'm really going to try and run the whole thing on Saturday!! I can't wait to read everyone's race reports!!
I've also been dancing a lot more - I started beginners ballet last week which was awesome but my calves didn't like it at all for the rest of the week!! I'm back again tonight for class number two so I'm hoping my calves get more used to the positions.
Last night I went to a stretch and tone class which was brilliant - not an energetic dance class like I'm used to but I'm hoping it'll help stretch out my ligaments a bit which in turn should help to prevent injuries. I've had a lot in the past due to torn ligaments and I think if they're a bit more supple then they'll bend and flex rather than tear?!
I also went to my street dance class on Friday night which was great fun - Courtney the dance instructor is totally mental but an amazing dancer - I dream of being able to move like her someday!! I already can't wait for Friday (for more reasons than simply because it's Friday!)
The other great thing about the dance class is that it's a mile away from my flat so I walk there and back which helps me get out and moving more plus adding an hour of dancing in the middle!!
That's a bit of an update from me - I promise it's not going to be that long before I update again!!
I know! Naughty Hannah!!
