So, another month is done; September starts tomorrow. Can’t believe how quickly this year is flying by!
Not really a great deal to tell you about today to be honest. Went for my run this morning, in the rain! It’s been raining all day. But my run was good, did 1.4 miles in 16:01, with an average mile pace of 11:24. So all in all a good effort. Was a bit slower than last time, but I think that was down to dodging puddles, people, and not being able to see properly! I need window wipers on my glasses I think haha. Felt good though, and hoping to improve on that time on Wednesday.
I didn’t make it to the gym today, just wasn’t feeling it for some reason. Not sure why. But I did do a workout at home to make up for it, and plan on going to the gym tomorrow too. Usually Tuesday is my rest day, but with weigh in on Friday, am making the most of every day I can. Plus, I won’t get a workout on Saturday or Sunday, so it all works out okay anyway. I’m dreading weigh in though, as I stepped on the scales yesterday and had gained again. Not sure what that’s all about. I guess it could have been water weight from my treat night….. not sure. Hoping to get it off before Friday. The last thing I want is a gain at official weigh in. It’s been losses all the way so far, will be so disappointed if it’s not. Even a maintain would be okay, just not a gain!
Diet wise today I’ve done really well, despite having pizza for dinner! Am sitting at just under 1800 calories, with a calorie burn of over 600. So all in all, it’s been a pretty good day today. I’m drinking a ton of water as well, so hopefully that’ll flush out some fat haha.
To sum up August then…. it’s been a mixed bag to be fair. Some ups, some downs, and some cruising in the middle too. I suppose it’s not been all bad, but I guess it could have been better. Sort of looking forward to what September will bring though, am hopeful for good things.
I’m a strong candidate for the housekeeping job apparently, which is good. If I get it, I won’t start until the end of the month pretty much, but at least it’s well paid and a fairly straight forward job to do. Just some cleaning, gardening and cooking. Oh and walking 3 dogs! It’s all good, and the lady is lovely. Am really hoping I get it to be honest. Watch this space as they say!
Right, that’s all from me for tonight; am so tired my eyes are crossing! Thanks for reading as ever folks, hope you’ve had a good bank holiday Monday!! Take care, stay strong and until next time….
