Saturday & Sunday update

Saturday I found myself tired and without energy ~ this really upset me as Friday I felt like my old self again and was hoping that this was the start to good times for me again ~ so I took the day off....Rested...Listened to my body.

The photo below was taken from my bedroom window last night...

Today after a good nights sleep I felt good when I woke dressed in my running gear and headed out...I told myself it was OK to walk when I needed to...and I never needed to...I felt the best during my run since arriving here two weeks ago...I even did interval runs up the steep hills...I felt so good...tired as I worked out hard during my run...but good.

Ran 7km
In 48.27 mins
Burned 786 calories
134~154 HR

Today I ate a few cheese scones my daughter baked...small ones, my first break away for a while and it didnt make me feel good...
I wasn't tempted to put my fingers into the chips bowl which was a huge step for me......

Tomorrow ( Monday ) is another rest day as my daughter goes into hospital to have her baby and I will be with her for the whole day, then in the late afternoon to evening will be looking after my 20 month old grandson.


  1. I like that you are listening to your body, how you are feeling and giving yourself permission to respond as it tells you. That is health Marcelle.

    Way to go for avoiding the's a tough one for me too!

  2. Very smart to listen to your body and not overdo it.

    This is going to be an exciting day for you! I'm excited too and wait for your chat to hear about your granddaughter.

    I don't think I will be able to read your other blog this week but I'll catch up on that when I get back. I can read this one from my feedreader on my BB only commenting on blogspot blogs is difficult from a BB I've noticed.
    But I will be responding for sure next weekend.

  3. Beautiful picture!

    Enjoy your new little granddaugther. :) That's so special that you get to be there for this!

  4. What a gorgeous picture!!
    Enjoy this time with your time- Proud of you for listening to your body!! HUGS
