I’ve realised that I’m not really living up to the name of my blog at the moment. I can’t remember when was the last time that I’ve said anything about running. OK I do admit that I’m really not running much at the moment. Last week I clocked a whole 11km’s for the week!! However I’m just not a cold weather person and I can’t do this early morning runs when the temperatures hover at around 0 degrees.
I have been doing a lot of gym work though and I can already see a difference in the shape of my arms and my stomach. The muscles show much more but I think the weight loss also help with the definition – no more fat hiding the muscles!
On Saturday night we had our after Comrades party and for the first time in my life I received a prize for a sport achievement! Yes I was the first lady in our club to finish Comrades and my prize is a cool R1,000! I really want to buy something special with it but at the moment I have no idea! Any suggestions?
On Sunday Zoe and myself went to a market in Benoni – “Boere meisie mark”. I was a bit disappointed – I suppose because I can knit and sew and bake. Most of the stuff I saw was either ideas from Pinterest or stuff I can make or bake myself. Owls are most definitely the flavour of the day. I did buy Zoe a very cute little owl purse that was crocheted. There was a food stall that sold vetkoek, Zoe asked for one but they were sold out. So I promised her that we’ll make some at home.
And then the carb monster woke up! I made vetkoek and curry mince and cheese. I had 2 in the afternoon and another 2 in the evening. And then I was craving all things weird and wonderful! I then had chocolate and then some Flings and then I craved Coke – however I didn’t give in to the Coke craving – I had cookies and milk instead. Hubby had the exact same problem – vetkoek for lunch and dinner and then anything he could lay his hands on – chocolate, chips, coke etc etc. And then I actually felt sick – nausea and lethargic – now I don’t know if this was actual real physical symptoms or more psychological because I felt so disgusted with myself. Ohh well it’s not although we do it everyday.
And it seems although the strike is still going on….
