Back in May (how time fly’s?) I wrote about wanting to improve my 5km running time and I thought ‘Well, I’m a little over due a catch up’…
Looking back on the first post made me smile, I was feeling in a real running funk after Silverstone Half Marathon and I felt as if I was getting slower and not faster, something needed to change.
I was recently contacted to give an honest review of Dr Barry Sears New Book ‘The Mediterranean Zone’ and some of the seriously tasty Ener Zona snack’s that complement the lifestyle.
If you’re anything like me, you’ll be thinking..
‘Hmmmm, Mediterranean style food sounds wonderful, I’ll have to drink red wine, enjoy a healthy dash of olive oil and embrace more pasta’?
Not so fast…
I love being a foodie, It’s almost a ‘habit’ (read: obsession) for me to day dream about food. I like to think it may also be from my genetic make up as few people can bake a cake or whip up a chocolate truffle like my mother. I do also think that there is always a place for baking with butter, sugar and all the chocolate and who can deny that sometimes a huge piece of chocolate cake can really hit the spot?
My gorgeous friend Jo and I were over due a catch up, whilst making arrangements she suddenly suggested we go to try a new fitness class – What a stonking idea? We can catch up, burn some calories, try a new workout and laugh at the fact I get in the most awful muddle with left and right.
Ahhhha the time has come for me to divulge the next chapter in my 10 weeks to a better body mission..
All righty then, I’m happy to report that ‘Better Body’ experiment is cruising along nicely and I’m finally seeing some results, not only in relation to my shape but more importantly my fitness.
I don’t talk about fashion or style often, if you saw the current state of my nails you’d understand why..
I spent year’s being high maintenance and it’s tiring, expensive and just hard work! Nowadays that pretty much sum’s up my food planning, preparing and buying routine – Just kidding! (maybe….)
