Hi there – it’s been a while, hasn’t it?! Here’s a little update on what’s been going on recently – the good, the bad and everything in between!
What’s going on
As per usual, things are crazy busy at work – some things never change! Nonetheless a real positive is that Summer seems to be lasting into September, so we have gorgeous weather in London. Also, my company has just moved building, which means I’m now a 30 minute walk from home – a rare luxury in the city!
I’m genuinely loving fitness at the moment. I’m currently training hard for a holiday in Mexico, and I’m loving the fact that I have a clear goal to work towards. My workouts have become much more varied, and a typical week looks like this:
- Monday: 40 minutes HiiT
- Tuesday: 1 hour pilates
- Wednesday: 5k run
- Thursday: 1 hour pilates
- Friday: Rest day
- Saturday: 40 minutes HiiT
- Sunday: 5k run
Another exciting development is that I’ve started climbing again! You may know that I took a rather nasty fall about 18 months ago and really screwed up my ankle; since then I’ve been way too scared to go. But recently I’ve started again – progress is slow, mainly because i’m pretty terrified of everything. But still, progress is progress!
Like I said, I’m currently working towards a beach holiday, but even so I haven’t been hugely restrictive. I’ve focused on cutting out the crap, having a protein source in every meal, and lots of veggies. I’m eating fewer processed carbs, and whilst it’s a bit tricky to adjust to, I’m noticing results and that’s reward enough!
Emotionally and mentally, things aren’t too bad at the moment. I’m running plenty and getting lots of sunlight whilst it lasts. Plus, the walks to work are a great time to clear my mind after a frantic day. Work can be trying at times, but I’m doing my best to breathe deep and persevere!
So tell me, how have you been recently?
Lots of love,
