Meal Plan & Weekly Weigh In: May Week 1

Having a very lazy bank holiday monday! Going to try and recharge my batteries in preparation for the week ahead. It may only be a 4 day week, but its a big week for me. I got a bit of a promotion in work and I am starting my new position as Business Analyst tomorrow. So I want to be as prepared as possible, and as well as sitting around relaxing I am doing lots of research into the role.

Last week was a great week and I managed to lose the full 3lbs that I gained the previous week. I knew it was pretty much all water weight, but I really wasn't expecting to lose it all in a week. Am back to 1lb under goal which is a good place to be.

My training has been going really well, I managed a 14.5km run yesterday which is great news considering this week I signed up for my 4th half marathon! I will be taking part in the Rock & Roll Half Marathon in Dublin this August and I am both really excited and absolutely petrified all at the same time. If anything it will keep my training going. I have been looking back over my runs from this time last year when I was getting ready for the Clontarf half and I definitely was not doing long enough runs. I was focused on shorter fast runs. I think the key this year to make sure I don't hate every minute of the Rock and Roll like I did with the Clontarf is to focus more on the distance rather than the speed. 5 weeks to go until the VHI womens mini marathon and I am pretty much prepared for that, I am focusing on doing what I need to do for the half marathon and that in itself will be training enough for the 10k in 5 weeks.

With all that's going on in work, and the fact I have an extra day I really want to make sure I am well prepared. Also last weeks dinners were a bit dull, so pulled out the recipe books for some inspiration for this week and am excited about dinners again. I promise to post 2 more recipes this week, one sweet and one dinner recipe so watch this space!
