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.

Saturday summary 8

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

20130803-093359 PM.jpg

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.

What’s made your week better? Is your cat quicker than the fastest man in the world?

July Goals…. Did I do em…?

So here were my goals for July

20130802-090040 PM.jpg

So how did I do?

Run 15k – 20k per week
Done.
I managed over 60k in July which averages out to 16k per week.

20130802-090248 PM.jpg

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?

20130802-091758 PM.jpg

Inspired by the beautiful Gemma and her #awesomeaugust idea here are my goals.

Have you made some goals? Are you making #awesomeaugust?
