The week ahead

*rolls eyeballs around in head*!!!!!!!
I wrote this on Sunday evening to give me a kick start for the week and have not stopped for breath since.
Going on a train trip with reception class on Monday so this will take up most of my day.  The plan in my head is to drop kids at school and come home for a quick run on Freddie the treaddie before going back to do the train trip (the kids have no idea its all a surprise :-)

My "shrug face" in stereo
... promise - I am NOT laughing!

& YES, I wore the same top 2 days in a row ...... I just don't seem to sweat like MR-Steam-Coming-Off-His-Head-Hubby :-), I do still turn tomato red after 10 seconds though!

OK, food wise I have been a little lax on this side of things.  I'm not logging anything and I have not been rigid with omitting stodgy starches either.  Thing is I'm not going to fret because I know this too will pass, I'd rather ride it out than it become an issue.

There has been lots of running around with the kids this week with the addition of the school trip Monday and parent consultations this afternoon.  Not only that but I have been trying to finish a book I started MONTHS ago so that has been occupying my time instead of blogging.  A fine balancing act as you all know :-)  I have been reading blogs and trying to comment where I can, there are so many amazing achievements and challenges going on I love it.



  1. you look like you're enjoying it though and that's the main thing! :) xx

  2. I love that top!

    I wear the same thing to the gym sometimes, too. I mean, I'm going to smell anyway, so who cares?

    Slow Carb: The whole eating things because I feel like I should because I can thing, oh man, yes. Most of the time I wanted one bad thing on cheat day, but I'd eat a bunch of terrible stuff, because I felt like I "should." And it always felt gross.

  3. The surprise trip sounds so much fun :)

  4. Great picture! Your shrug face really is a sight!

    And lying t-bar rows are a new one on me. I'm going to have to google that.

    Good job on not stressing about the starchy carbs. Tbh I don't think you can train long and omit these entirely. Not for extended periods. Even bodybuilders who are cutting eat brown rice. So I think you're absolutely right to roll with it :-)

  5. Haha - I was looking forward to the shrug face and you didn't disappoint - you look very happy :-)
    I'm feeling snotty at the moment too, so you have my sympathy!
    Btw - I always recycle gym gear at least a couple of times.


Thank you for your comments, I read & digest them all :-)
