What I Wore And A weigh In!!

Morning...

Hope you are all well and enjoying the summer holidays? 

We have been busy filling our day with fun, exercise, laughter and eating lots of yummy food when out and about. which reminds me, I have my monthly fitness test at the gym this morning!! 

I wonder if the old body fat has come down? or if the chips and doughnuts on days out at the seaside over the last few weeks has made it go back up? Why I am feeling so nervous?

It is only a fit test! 

Maybe because I want to improve? and get my body fat down a little, to help with my running. I find it so hard to be motivated for exercise when the children are off school though!

Do you? 1 step forward, then 1 back.

Oh well, here goes! Wish me luck!!

Red Shirt, Red Rug : Share Your Style Saturdays...


Outfit~

Shirt ~ Primark

Skirt ~ Charity shop

On Thursday it was my husbands day off from work, so I talked him into going shopping!!

IKEA was the perfect date, with a large cooked breakfast to swing him into going and a chance for me to grab some things I had been planning to buy for a while. Having a small car I could not buy everything I wanted ( wow I love this shop ) I did pick up and amazing cupboard with flora boxes to store lots of things away, a wonderful big lampshade for only £2.25, laptop tray for my knee and a big chunky perfect red rug to go under my kitchen table in bright red top match my shirt :0)

Now planning another trip for things I forgot!!

Arr what a week, great if your a duck!!

We certainly have had our fair share of the rain over the last few days. So much so just trying to run a few miles to the gym was hard work. After only 5 minutes I got so weighed down with all the rain, I had to turn back and go home. Me and 3 of my children had a lovely day out on Tuesday, then we meet my husband from work for lunch as they had a day off from school as the teachers were striking. So lots of yummy food!!

 Finally got to wear my new shoes what my husband treated me to a few weeks back!!

London Marathon Thought, Sunburn And Pale Legs!!!

 
 


Outfit~
 
Dress ~ Next via The British Heart Foundation Charity Shop
 
Shoes ~ Tesco
 

Not only are my legs in pain from the London marathon I have sun burned painful shoulders!!

I trained hard all Winter thought the snow, rain, wind even the snow  came back up to a few weeks ago, for it to be a wonderful sunny day in London on Sunday and forgot to take suntan lotion!!

Sunday was amazing, the crowds were amazing, the atmosphere was amazing and the water stations were amazing.

The whole experience from where to leave your bag to finding family at the end of the race was perfect.

Thing that will stick in my mind forever-

Leaving my children and husband to go to the start

The amazing crowds cheering you on for 26 miles

Children wanting to give you high fives

People giving you sweets,bananas, oranges and even chicken nuggets

Knees going at 13 miles

The crowds going wild at the end cheering you on

Seeing my husband and 2 youngest children happy and sad at the end because I was crying and they were proud of me

A stranger stopping me in London to tell me how proud I should be and how fantastic I am

People looking at you funny when going home because you cant walk straight line

Legs so painful I can't walk down stairs and Sunburn the next day!!

The painful look on my face on nearly all the official photos, surely I looked fresh somewhere?

Can't wait to try and get in for next year race :)

Now wheres the fake suntan lotion? ,,, my legs need to catch up!!

Im on the shortlist for the BIB style award, Please please vote for me :):):)

Charity Shopping and Runstreak latest....


Yeh the snow has gone but boo it's been replaced with cold and wind! Not feeling the love for running yesterday I woke up with a headache and felt poorly. I decided to swap my run for a shopping trip ( but still ran later). Boy did I feel loads better afterwards.

 Not that I brought to much 2 lovely jackets from the charity shop, some bun cases, baking bit, heart trays, bake wear and a heart plate from my favourite bargain shop. Think I'm addicted to buying baking things more than shoes now. 


Cardi - Sports world
Top - Kiss collection
Jeans - Primark
Boots - F& F Tesco


My jackets I got from the charity shops, thinking of changing the buttons on the polka dot on and fancying it up somehow...

Been feeling tired, run down and lack of inspiration for running over the last few days. Think it the cold, wind and start of a cold. I didn't manage my long run this weekend, I have still been running ever day!!
