My week in pictures:
I tried out a few recipes from the Jack Monroe book on monday and really loved the smokey bean burger it was bloody lovely! Since booking our 2 week holiday to Vegas on Saturday I now cant stop thinking about it and counting down the days even though I should’nt wish my summer away its still very exciting.
Last night I sat down and finally made myself my first pair of handmade underwear. I frickin hate buying underwear because I’m a funny shape so they never fit properly. I have been wanting to sew my own underwear forever just as a “I can do that” kinda thing but actually I have a tonne of elastic and access to lots of jersey so I might make a few more pairs.
This afternoon I had to go post some orders at the post office and called into my sisters and we decided to go for a walk around the park with Logan and I had to take a picture of his hoodie because I never got the chance too when he wore it on the day!
Anyway I’m still alive just still poorly but after that stroll in the park I feel alot better and may do a weights session tomorrow to start back.
(if you cant read his tshirt is says “My Aunty Vic ran the great north run. I’m so proud”)
Still really poorly and coughing is making me soooo tired.
Managed to still sneak to GAP to treat myself to some new skinny jeans. Had a doctors appointment today to get my next 12 months of cerazetta and the doctor didn’t even weigh me! They always do! Anyway back to work tomorrow boo!
Hopefully will be back running in a couple of days when I’m not coughing my lungs up.
Hope everyone had good weekends.
Who says fat birds shouldn’t wear horizontal stripe’s.
Poorly as fuck with a chesty cough passed on from my nephew.
Tested my resting heart rate today and it was 55 which according to the table I checked online I have the heart strength of an athlete!
Don’t care if that’s bullshit it made me feel awesome!!
Your coming Iv cleared it with the hubs we just gotta smuggle you in my luggage!
2 weeks in Las Vegas at the end of august!!!!
Where have these new followers come from??
Another 6 hours spent building the biggest chicken coop I’ve ever seen.
I’m soooo tired again.
At least its been 2 days of lots of exercise
I got up and out for a run before 7am this morning and managed to get 4 miles including some sprint intervals. This morning was the first time this year Iv worn running capris instead of full length tights and it was nice to feel the breeze on my chubby legs.
Got back ate breakfast did some work then went to my parents. My mum is a poultry breeder and she’s just invested in this feckin huge 8ft high mesh coop. My dad isn’t as young as he used to be and suffers a lot with his shoulder (had 2 ops to remove bone spurs but still suffers) and my mum has fibromyalgia so I try and help when I can so I spent the day ripping up decking,levelling soil,moving concrete slabs and building the mesh coup.
I’m absolutely exhausted and I’m so excited to have a nice hot bath.
For my meal tonight I had a butternut squash curry (my friend is half Indian and she cooks the most incredible Indian food and she gave me the recipe for this butternut squash soup but in my house it gets thickened and turned into curry!) I chucked a bunch of veg in and had some cauliflower rice to go with it and it was awesome!!
