Week 30 - melting away in work and sunshine
Oh, this week. This week has been full of work. You know those weeks where you feel relaxed and on Friday night you have a full, long weekend ahead of you, filled with just goodness? This was not one of those the weeks.
Saying that - it was not a bad week, just a busy one. The weather was so hot that we were all melting away and both of the times that I went out running I opted for a 6am start - I just couldn't face the melting mixture of sunshine and humidity that this country offer at any point after work. (If you want to feel super-productive I would recommend running at 6am when no one else is out. THE SMUGNESS.) On top of that I had quite a few meetings this week but I organised them all so that I would have my Thursday free anything requiring my office and instead I did my work in my garden. Why not take advantage of being a PhD student? My entire weekend has been spent working on an important deadline for tomorrow apart from a quick break when me and Steve went to the shopping center on yesterday. I restocked my bathroom cabinet (psst, Boots have got a 3 for 2 offer on No7 products at the moment and you need it all), bought lemon tart and take-away coffee because there is really no excuse not to treat yourself if you have to do work and you just got paid.
Healthwise, this week has been pretty good. I squeezed in two running sessions and two fitness videos over the week + a couple of short walks with Steve. Once I had finished that lemon drizzle cake from last Sunday my eating markedly improved as well. Not counting this weekend of course. (Never count the weekend - it makes healthy eating miserable). And also not counting Friday because I may have bought a burrito so that I would feel slightly better about work... Which I am almost entirely done with for the night. Two more weeks until I'm off for a week!
