Yeah so I missed a week. New job, commute….blah blah blah. Anyway I’ve had a weeks holiday this week and this is how it looked!
For lack of a wolf suit…. Where the wild things are t shirt
Reunited with my boys
Attempt at chevron nails, almost a Pinterest fail.
Trip to Brownsea Island.
Lotta tapas and wine
Carrot cake and chocolate
And a little flashback to 5 years ago…..shall I go back to brunette?
Well this week I’ve mainly been….
(Ignore James non detox lunch on the left)
I followed the Nikki Sharp of Stay Sharp and Be Strong
5 day detox programme which costs about £5….if you are considering doing it…just do it, I’ve loved it!
Also running…a lot….now sat with an ice pack on my foot again….
Also admiring the scenery around my mums house
Also clearing my desk after 4 years in the same job….
Yes my locker was full of food!
Also spending time with these little guys….
This week has actually had a few more highlights than last week….cue collective sigh of relief!
Alcoholic dandelion and burdock
Naughty dinner in my favourite chilled bar
Monday night mojitos and brownies
Lunch by the river
Lovely leaving present
Pug jumper, mac purchases and a lovely print. I didn’t buy the picture or the jumper.
Pretty bed at my mums.
Well if I thought not much happened last week then this week was much worse!
I might have to stop these fascination insights into my life until I actually start doing something other than moving stuff and working.
Make up storage. Done. Despite rediscovering all this lot, this week I’ve mainly worn 2 products.
New sofa. Plus cat and man. They aren’t new.
Adding glitter to photos! Hello glitter nebula.
Triple shot Starbucks.
Trying to mend a running injury with rosé.
Still ran on it though….
Rediscovering these 2 tunes.
Sunny Friday evenings.
Hitting 1000 page views on here. This may take a negative hit after this post!
Silly week this week of not too much fun sadly. I’m in the process of moving all my stuff out of my flat which is pretty dull and depressing.
Highlights have been
Rediscovering this story written for me by my sister when I was about 5 or 6. It’s all about a magic chalkboard and I think it ends with ‘and it was all a dream’ I remember her writing it so clearly.
Pug/bulldog print pjs. Thanks Primark.
Flowers in my dinner.
Rocking a swift updo for dinner with my parents and the boy. I am wearing a top I promise.
Fresh lavender from the garden. Furry face optional.
Sainsburys stocking this little baby. Hello Christmas.
Overnight oats with chia seeds. Recipe coming up.
Reunited with my childhood companion. Had a version of him since I was 2 days old.
Thank you flowers from a colleague.
Maine Coone does Usain Bolt….
What’s made your week better? Is your cat quicker than the fastest man in the world?
So here were my goals for July
So how did I do?
Run 15k – 20k per week
I managed over 60k in July which averages out to 16k per week.
Lose 7 more pounds.
Yeah that one totally didn’t happen despite all the running I stayed exactly the same weight.
2 weeks on holiday made me fall off the calorie counting band wagon. I’ve still eaten well just been much less strict. I had a brief flirtation with the 5:2 diet but I find I just want to eat the world….
Finish work on time at least twice a week.
Yeah did this one. Also managed to get a promotion so may not last!
Drink 3 litres of water a day. Nailed this. Have consistently managed 2 litres at work then at least 2 pints at home.
So what’s planned for August?
Inspired by the beautiful Gemma and her #awesomeaugust idea here are my goals.
Have you made some goals? Are you making #awesomeaugust?
So what has been pushing my buttons this week…
Fallen solider at the beach..
Cat vs pug cushion
Turning a veg box from Mum’s garden into a yummy dinner. Recipe to come
Erm Cookie Dough!
Huskies holding hands

Discovering a new place to eat
Sunny evenings in courtyards
Hitting my running goals
New trainers (my toes are grateful) excuse the cat tail…comes as standard
No speak Americano coming on at the gym and me sniggering while running, remembering this…
What’s been making you happy this week…?
