Good morning, the sun is shining outside and it looks like its going to be a bright sunny day - How delightful!
I thought today I would give you a round up of what we have done this week.
Exercise and weight loss
I have run four times this week, we ran early this morning. It hasn't been very far and only takes about fifteen/twenty minutes and I run two lamp post lengths then walk a lamp post length and just keep repeating the cycle. I was told by one of the PE teachers that come into the school that running for a bit and then walking helps to speed up your metabolism.
I have lost (weight for it, ha ha, sorry I couldn't resist the pun) 8lb. I am really pleased with this as I have eaten very well all week much better than I normally eat. It helps that I haven't been at work because I've had time to eat breakfast and lunch. I normally don't have breakfast and I rush lunch in fifteen minutes but I'm hoping that I can get so organised by the time that we go back to school that I can eat breakfast and have a healthy lunch prepared.
I have also been reducing the amount of coffee that I drink. I used to drink about eight cups a day and I have reduced it down to mostly one with a second in the afternoon at weekends. I am now drinking about five or six glasses of water a day.
Cleaning and organising completed
Lounge and hallway - big huge tick
What do you think?
There is still a box with items inside that I have put on Ebay next to the unit but that's just for the ease of packaging to send off to the buyers.
I am also working my way through washing and ironing everything. I have concentrated on my thirteen year olds clothes this week because he is taking quite a lot away with him. Yes, I know I'll have to do it again when he gets back...
Items sold and money earn
DVD's and books sold on Ziffit - £35.10 (this is the items already sent - there is more to go)
Unit and trainers sold on Ebay -£7.50
Books sold on Facebook sales - £4.00
I need to make £305 by the end of the holiday to pay for my daughters school trip
=258.40 to go.
I have also saved additional money on shopping this week but as I've not actually made money it can't go into the saving fund.
Things done for me!
- Face and hair mask - done after todays run
- Afternoon tea with my mum, my aunt and my sister in law
- Nails filed (I might borrow one of my daughters nail varnishes later and paint them)
Have a lovely evening and take care xx
