Thursday I had a meeting where I had to take notes. I knew it was going to be a long day and it was. We started at 9 am and we’re finished at 5.30 pm. So at night I didn’t do much more than sit on the couch and watch a movie “Bride Wars”.
Yesterday I had the day off and it was girls night out! K. came over to my house to have dinner at my place. Since the weather was beautiful yesterday we could eat outside:
After dinner we went to the theatre to see Sex and the City 2. We’re both huge fans of this show and we saw the first movie together too.
Of course if you go to S&TC you have to wear designer shoes. K. wore Gucci’s and I wore Calvin Klein pumps:
I’ve had a great time but it’s always fun to do something with K.
Today I’m going to enjoy yet another sunny day and tonight we have a birthday party from one of our friends.
I usually mention my weight only once a month but I was so happy with my weigh inn on Thursday I want to share it with you this week. I’ve lost 0.7 kg/1.5 lbs. That’s huge for me and I’ve only run twice since my last weigh inn. Only 0.2 kg/0.4 lbs to go and I’m below 79 kg/174 lbs and I can’t even remember when the last time was I weighted that. Definitely somewhere around 2000. This inspired me to the following:
Fran’s Summer Challenge:
Inspired by my weight loss this week, Syl’s summer challenge and Heidi’s 30 days of activity for June I made my own challenge for this summer. I’ll start next Monday June 7th and the challenge ends on Sunday August 29th. This is 12 weeks, 84 days. I’ll update my challenge every week on Sunday or Monday.
- Lose some weight every week.
No pressure here, just lose some every week.
- Exercise at least 60 out of 84 days.
I know myself so I kept this to a number that I can achieve.
- Do something active every day (this can be working out, running, housekeeping, walking with Bella, going for a ride on my bike and so on) for at least 30 minutes.
- Run at least two times while we’re on vacation.
We’re going away for a week on June 18th and I’m bringing my running clothes and shoes.
- Follow the half marathon plan and don’t skip any trainings.
Exception: the week we’re on holiday. In that week I want to run but just for fun.
- Eat more fruit and vegetables.
Speaks for itself.
- Try a new recipe at least once a week.
I’ve got 67 cook books and a lot of recipes from magazines and the past few months I didn’t use those very often.
- Take Bella to the beach for the first time in her life.
- See “Eclipse” (Twilight Saga).
- Read at least 6 books before August 29th (aangeven welke).
So here it is, I put some fun challenges to my list too because my life isn’t all about exercising and eating healthy. If you want to join me in this, be my guest. I have one rule only and that’s that you have to add at least 4 things to your list that are fun. If some of you join me I will send something to the one who did the best in her challenge at the end of it.
No exercise since Monday. Work has been so busy but that’s over now so no more excuses.
Latest movie seen:
I’m a huge fan of S&TC so I was really looking forward to seeing it. I didn’t like the first part of the movie that much, too sticky. I loved the gay wedding, it was so over the top. I started to like it more once the girls arrived in Abu Dhabi and from that point it got better. The best part in this movie was for Samantha in my opinion, I really loved her in this one. And I liked Miranda a lot better too in this one.
Overall conclusion: I liked it but I don’t think there should be a third movie unless they come up with great storylines because that’s what I missed a bit in this one.
What’s for dinner:
Friday: a rocket salad with snow peas, green asparagus, cucumber, cashew nuts, tenderloin and a dressing.
Quote of the day:
“The most important thing in life is your family. There are days you love them, and others you don’t. But, in the end, they’re the people you always come home to. Sometimes it’s the family you’re born into and sometimes it’s the one you make for yourself.”
