Sorry its late I've had a funny old day so I have. Well lets get the important stuff out the way. A stay the same. Last night I was totally at peace with this. Today I'm not so sure. I have wasted a week and in my friends words "feel lardy and yukky". I always get heartburn when I've eaten crap too.
You see I kind of continued my party mood following on from buddy's birthday bash last Monday (that was on the back of my 2lb loss). I didn't write my diary as I had a busy week and I was always playing catch up with the exercise. I managed to do 4 x workouts - Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. On Sunday I went for the dreaded 'run' and managed 2 laps around the block. Not all running but much more than last time.
Should you ever wish your beloved to see you at your worse then running is the answer. I can't think of a time, in recent history, where I have looked more unattractive. I came back with a face brighter than a beetroot and this continued all over my body. Hair scraped back, middle aged matron alert! Seriously, it was not a good look. My legs were so heavy after the run and a fellow runner on twitter pointed out, quite rightly, I should be warming up.
Onto other matters. I spent over one hour trying to purchase cycling or swimming tickets for the Olympic games. I was unsuccessful in my quest. You can only buy a maximum of 4 which means buddy will have to sit out this one. Furthermore, the cheapest were £50 going up to a staggering £350 per ticket. I got so caught up in it all, that at one point, the computer was checking availability for tickets at a grand total of over £1,000. Well my husband had said it was once in a lifetime event. I asked how he would have felt had I been able to purchase tickets at this price - "not very happy". Did you also know that they are charging for you just to watch the marathon on The Mall? You know that open public area called pavement - £40 if you please.
Now this isn't even the best bit. The husband is triumphant later on because we have secured 4 x tickets to... wait for it.... women's weightlifting with medals ceremony! Yeehar. Really? Seriously? They were cheaper at £45 a pop at any event and it does mean we get to be part of the Olympics. Alas I won't get to cheer Mark Cavendish and Bradley Wiggins at the cycling. I'll have to make do with the Tour de France coverage on ITV 4 in July.
I also had a bit of a clear out of my blog - done away with the "I've been nominated badges" and the like. I also deleted some mum websites and blog award sites I follow on twitter. I happened to comment on one re the parent vouchers on facebook. I cut and pasted part of yesterday's post. It was deleted! As long as you talk the middle road talk then you'll do fine at all these blog awards, review shit that doesn't matter and tell people what your favourite colour is.
Now when I start talking the talk and doing all these things its time to call it a day - hence the clear out. I ain't no desperado blogger. Nooooooo sorry!
