All in all, a good week :)

The running has been going well – I’m doing about 4K per day, plus 5 mins of pilates at the end of it (and yes, even with that little amount I’m noticing differences, that’s why I’ll try and keep it up!) – and so’s the eating.

For the most part. Yesterday I will admit I indulged in 2 doughnuts from Krispy Kreme (my 2nd and 3rd this year (I *think*), so it’s not like it’s a habit); my favourite is strawberry, then I had a half a chocolate topped chocolate doughnut, and half a round one with some sweet stuff inside (not custard though). I enjoyed them very much, and surprisingly, I wanted to go back and eat more (DAMN HIM for buying a box!), but I didn’t. I let myself have these treats when they are available and when I feel like them, but I’m not going to eat them just for the sake of eating them. I’m just greatful there’s no Krispy Kreme shop at the airport here!!

Oh, and I had half a martini. And I stopped at that half – and so did he – so that was a big win for me. Didn’t particularly notice the effect (which was great considering how crap I felt last time – maybe the doughnuts and sugar helped??), but I did drop off to sleep a little earlier. Unfortunately I’m also awake at 2am again, but at least that’s within my ‘normal’ range!

Hopefully today will pass quickly, I’ll get knocked off at lunch, and then I can go do those things that I need to do. :))

Will plan for a long run this weekend, we’ll see how that monsoon looks though – there was a huge lightening storm the other evening, and people got trapped in lifts all over town – very scary!


Japan – here we come!

Two sleeps anna wakey!

Not packed a damn thing yet… we’ve got two days off work to do that, so I’m not fussed (at 6am – lets see how it is by this afternoone!). We’ll be taking the running gear, but I’m not sure how much running we’ll get in (if any), and at least there’ll be plenty of walking involved.

Eating for me will not involve rice (much), and soba noodles (cos they’re buckwheat rather than wheat). And rice crackers. And the strawberry krispy kreme doughnut I’m going to eat when we go through the international airport. Probably hate it given I’ve been ‘sugar free’ for one month tomorrow, but I’ll be really REALLY pissed off if I do, as I only eat the one brand, and given they’re not local, I only get the opportunity a couple of times a year – so I make myself eat them!
