A Sense of Accomplishment

I'm feeling absolutely and positively pumped today.
I think the sun shining is playing quite a big part in in, along with the fact that it wasn't dark when I caught the train this morning and also because I am hugely proud that I managed Week 6, Day 3 of c25K, which is the non-stop 22-minute run. Small fry for some more experienced runners, but to me it's a marathon! :) Considering I only started in January and now have just 2 weeks left of the official programme left to go, I'm feeling really positive. So positive in fact, that I started canvasing suggestions on Twitter (Follow Me!) for beginner-friendly Parkruns nearby that I can try out in a few weeks' time. Nonsuch Park it is! Let's just hope the weather holds! :)

Today I had another kinda Non-Scale Victory. I popped into M&S this lunchtime as my current underwear is really starting to fit badly. I noticed that they have an offer on where if you have a lingerie fitting session, they give you £5 off if you spend £30 on underwear, so thought I'd take them up on it.
Apparently I am nowhere near the bra size that I thought I was, and it's no wonder everything is fitting so badly now!
I told the lady that I've been losing weight so don't want to spend too much now, only to have to buy more in a few months' time, so she suggested and fitted a couple of key pieces (2 for £16), leaving me to then go pick out some matching knickers. Well pleased! I picked up one of my favourite American Style Pork wraps as a treat. :)

As M&S is next door to Holland and Barrett, it would have been rude not to pop in and take advantage of their storewide BOGOF deal . I've been itching to try Bounce Natural Energy Balls for a while, so picked up a few for me and P to try. Review to come soon...

Have a wonderful weekend! I think this weekend we are going to visit Bekenscote Model Village and look at getting our bikes road/trail-ready!!! :)

What are you up to this weekend?
And what healthy snacks do you enjoy?

Today's Workout (c25k W6D3):
Walking (brisk, 3.8 mph) = 13 minutes (8, 5)
Running (slow, 5.5 mph) = 22 minutes (22 non-stop)
Stationary Bike (moderate, 100+ rpm) = 18 minutes


  1. Those Bounce balls are great! I like the Almond one and the Coconut and Macadamia one the best :)

    1. Those are the two that appeal the most, but I didn't want to leave the poor peanut ones on the shelf without at least trying them :)
