I´ve been absent for a bit. Reason for that for once were my visitors from Germany. I told you, that I was a bit worried about it, but my friend and I had a fantastic time! Unfortunately, the fella she brought over was a complete honk, and we had to get rid of him for the last three nights :-)
Then I was without a husband for three days, because he was driving his brother and two mates, who were doing the 3-Peak-Walk (walking up the three highest mountains in Scotland, England and Wales in 24 hours). They did it in 22.5 hours. Well done guys!!!!
No need to say that in the week, when my friends were here, there was no control of food intake whatsoever. Nor of the alcohol intake. I basically was hungover for a complete week. I still did my workouts, though.
And it hurts me to say that it didn´t get much better, after they left. But I am determined that that has to change from right now!!!!
You know that I was struggling with the decision, wether to go on or not, and I decided I WILL! By the way, have you seen the pictures of Bitch Cakes in her bikini? OMG! I want a belly like that! I wouldn´t mind a waist like that either, but I´m just not built like that.
So, I´ll get my tracker out and go back to healthy eating.
I couldn´t do any running or jumping (I´m sick of the cross-trainer, bike, rowing machine etc. I love running!) for good six weeks, because I still got a problem with my hip. No need to say that my trainer still found lots of hurtful stuff for me to do! Thursday I finally went to the doctor and had it X-rayed. Once the results are there, I´ll see the physios and an orthopedic. I´m happy about that, because my left leg´s constantly giving me problems. It´s time to sort it out, because my friends and I are thinking of running a few more races. We got the 5k in July (which I will run, even if I have to hobble all the way). Then we´re thinking about running a 10k in September and train up for a half marathon next year. My doctor doesn´t have any concerns about that, as soon as my hip´s sorted out.
I will now cook my lovely husband a breakfast (being Father´s Day) and then hit the gym before we take the kids out in this lovely weather. And I will track!!! I´m not sure, if I´ll make it to WI today, but I´ll try. Not excited to see the number, but I think it has to be done.
If I make it, I might even stay to have a one-to-one chat with the leader, in hope she can help me getting my head in the right frame of mind!
Great being back!
Have a lovely Sunday everyone!
