As I write this post I realise just how much I miss having the Internet at home. I haven't been able to catch up on any of my blogging. Whether its reading all my favourite blogs or writing my own. I feel really out of the loop and to be honest, my motivation has really taken a dive as well.
It is strange how that happens. Most of my friends are not as into fitness and health, like I am, so it is really hard for me to keep finding that balance - especially over the weekend.
In saying that, I did manage to get out for a run on Saturday morning :)
The sky was just beautiful when I got out of bed. Thankfully the weather was not too cold and I was able to get out of the house and still feel surprisingly perky.
I went for a quick jog around my new neighbourhood and felt strong. On the way back home there is a rather long gradual incline that I told myself I would OWN. I did own the incline; but promptly almost fell to the ground afterwards.
New Goal. Own the incline on the first loop around and then just make it up on the second loop (when I ran today I only completed one loop due to time restrictions).
As soon as I got home, I needed to stretch my legs. With the help of one fluffy puppy. Oscar decided that he needed to help me stretch, which I was more than OK with. Could you resist that?
No. You would have to have a heart of stone.
Breakfast was oats on the stove with peanut butter, raisins and agave nectar. Squash on the side. Hopefully our microwave will be fixed soon because I know we all find making oats quicker and easier that way.
Once I was all showered and ready to start the day I went down to Earlsfield and got some highlights put in my hair. As I get a bit older (**cringe**), my hair is getting fairer and there are some greys coming through up the top. Instead of dying my hair darker red (which I did for so many years), I have decided to just keep going lighter. It is easier for me to maintain with my lazy hair care routine.
Now.. I need to plan my birthday drinks next week. These new babies will be making their maiden voyage out and about in London. Very excited!
Do you see a drop in your motivation levels during certain times in your life?
Do you keep on track over the weekends?
