Yes, I must admit, I gave up there for a while, partly through laziness, and partly because reality hit, and adjusting to life back home got quite hard! I can finally feel myself settling now though, and I'm ready to confront myself.
First things first, I really am going to do it - the Great South Run. I am very excited and nervous. It seems a long way off now, but I know it will creep up very quickly, so I am trying to start stepping up my running game slowly but surely. My current fitness week consists of two walks with my cousin, usually one 3.5 mile and one 4.5-5 mile, one or two gym sessions, yoga dvd and a couple of runs. I am enjoying all of these, but need to step up the runs to three a week really, so something may have to give, or perhaps I just have to go for the dreaded treadmill. I just find it soooo much more of a slog than road running, but it was definitely easier on Saturday when it was so hot outside.
On to my eats - couple of good'uns yesterday. Lentil and sweet potato dahl - hello spicy goodness! Then Frozen Banana Custard, just a frozen banana blended up to taste JUST like ice cream. Amazing. Thank you Iowa Girl! Today was:

Breakfast: Blueberry Alpro Soya Yoghurt, All Bran, few banana slices, blueberries, strawberries, flaked toasted almonds, cinnamon, tea x 2 with soya milk

Snack: Homemade soy chai latte with agave nectar and soya milk, orange, walnut halves with dried apricots

Lunch: Leftover dahl, wholemeal pitta

Snacks: Strawberries and blueberries, three oatcakes, redbush tea with soy milk, 1/3 Nakd Apple Bar, 2 mints

Dinner: Two Veggie Glamorgan sausages, sweet potato mash, carrots and runner beans

Snack: Apple and cinnamon, redbush tea with oat milk

I will probably have another snack before bed... maybe an oacake or biscuit, but now for a magazine and Mary, Queen of Shops.
