Monday morning was productive. I caught up with some life admin outside in the garden, and somehow ended up being convinced to get a new iPad! My IT situation has not been great recently so it was actually quite a good thing that I contacted Three mobile. I'm now typing from my new IPad Air 2 and loving it! I was in work for the afternoon on Friday. When I came home I did a quick insanity workout and then got ready to do the drive back to Scotland. I was visiting home for a couple of days as I had tickets to see Coldplay at Hamden, (pictures later)
Tuesday was another brilliant day weather wise. I got myself down to my local park and ran round the manmade loch. It was beautiful. There were loads of people out keeping fit, walking dogs or maybe having a quick coffee break.l
I ran 3.7 miles in just under 37 minutes. I did feel as though I was going a little slow but I haven't been running that much over the last week or so because I wanted to rest my knee and I've had a cold. So hopefully it will be feeling easier again soon. After my run I came home and made a slimming world friendly and protein heavy breakfast.
I tried to cut as much fat off the bacon as I could. I put some tomatoes through my scrambled egg for extra flavour and then sat outside to enjoy the sunshine. I had some company though....
Since I had the day off I cooked dinner for everyone before we headed out to the Coldplay gig. I made chilli using a slimming world recipe on Pinterest. I've only just recently got into pin test and it's so good for finding echoes etc.
It seemed to go down a treat with everyone.
After dinner we headed to Hamden for the Coldplay gig. I've got to say I think it is possibly the best gig I have ever been at. This how was spectacular and the music sounded even better live.
On Wednesday I had loads of people to visit. I saw one of my uni friends and we took a lovely walk down by the Clyde. I then visited my cousin to meet her new baby who is just so so cute! I caught a little sunshine with my parents and then started the journey back to Manchester. There was an accident on the M6 which added a little bit of time to the journey but nothing too bad. I was tempted to get a takeaway by the time I got in but I decided to make some pasta instead which was more slimming world friendly (apart from the cheese). I had a long day yesterday so I didn't have time to do much else with my day. I didn't get in from work until 1.30am so I had a long lie until around 10 this morning. I'm due back in this afternoon so I better go and get ready!
It's been a good week this week in terms of socialising and seeing friends, family and the sun! Ideally I would have liked to have fitted in more exercise but it's just how it goes sometimes. I think I've eaten reasonably well so the aim is to keep that up over the weekend and avoid too much wine!
Have a good weekend!
