I didn't get to train on Monday as my daughter gave birth to my 5th grandchild
A little Princess
Tuesday I was riding around to see to things and the weather was terrible, lots of rain and I don't like running in the rain...
So today ( WED ) was the first change I had to run since Sunday
And the weather was perfect...HOT, with lots of sunshine...

I'm so excited I could burst...
Today I did a 10km run without walking at any point
I felt myself from the moment I headed out till the very end...
It felt like the old me again, not the beginner who was struggling
This all started about 2 weeks before I left Germany and continued till my last run on Sunday where I felt good but still walked...
Not today
Today I ran up those horrible steep hills...and trust me they are steep so I run at a very slow pace, but its still running and not walking.
I am so thrilled to feel like me the runner again
My 5km time has also I reached 5km in 32 mins.

Today I also went on line to check the calories of my breakfast...I was shocked.
50g Organic Instant Oats
1 Tsp of Flaxseed and Omega 3 sprinkle mixture
1 Tsp Organic Peanut butter
2 tsp honey
Coffee with two tsp honey and banana
Half my calories are gone just with my breakfast and I am meant to be eating 6 small meals a day...which I have been doing....
I am going to start counting the calories for a while with my clean eating as I am concerned after reading Jillian Michaels book * Winning by Losing * where she insists that counting calories is so does Bob Harper...
I have gained weight with not counting points or calories....and want to sort this out before its too late...trying to lose 10 kg's is not easy....
Otherwise I'm happy with my running ~ now need to find time to do my abs, squats and push ups again....

Ran 10 km
1 hour and 9 mins
Burned 1 188 calories
20% fat
HR - 139 ~ 173


  1. Congrats on the new grandchild! :) She's adorable!

  2. Congratulations to you and your family! How completely wonderful! I am so so glad you are feeling better, Marcy! Have been thinking and praying that you would!

  3. I'm so happy to hear you had a great run. Glad it came back to you.

    It's crazy how such a healthy breakfast can add up in calories so much.

  4. Congrats on the new grand baby!! Adorable!

  5. I love the baby- beautiful!!
    I posted you a message on group!! Hange in there---XOXO

  6. Oh CONGRATULATIONS on that beautiful blessing!

    And glad you're back safe and sound:)))

  7. She's beautiful!

    Glad to hear your joy for running is back and you had such a great run!

  8. I do really well by eating small meals throughout the day and always achieve my desired weight by doing so. Do you like eggs or savory oats? A good low cal savory breakfast that I've been eating is plain oatbran cooked in water and a pinch of salt, one tablespoon each of chia seeds a flaxseed mixed in, with a scrambled egg whites cooked separately+ chives mixed in. Very filling, good fats from the flax+chia, and high in protein. If I'm in the mood for a runny egg, I'll top the oatbran with one egg/one white (not sure if it sounds weird to you, but it truly is delicious). Later on when I get hungry I'll have the banana with a protein, usually nut butter or a handful of unsalted almonds. Thats almost your breakfast spread out into two meals.
    Beautiful baby girl! Congrats!
