Day Thirty One – Dreams

I’ve been feeling really positive all day today. I can see and feel real progress in my training and am also in such a good place with my food intake. I can’t help but be proud of myself for how far I have some in just a mere 31 days, and long may this continue. I’m finally getting where I want to be.

As I’m in the middle of Bear Grylls’ autobiography, I find myself dreaming of adventure on a daily basis. I want to go hiking in the Welsh mountains, long walks at the weekend in Edinburgh and the biggest dream of all is to climb Mount Everest. I’m a million miles away from that at the moment and it may not even be a possibility (there’s talk of the mountain closing to footfall) but I can’t help but feel a little spark inside me when I’m running, spurring me on to get there one day. I don’t know what it is about Everest, but it’s got me hook, line and sinker.

I upped the aunty with my workout again this morning, running 7km – this time I ran the majority¬†at incline. There was another girl I see in the gym regularly, on the treadmill beside me and it really pushed me to work harder and keep going. I hope to keep increasing my distances, speeds and incline over time. I’m going to have to start going to the gym earlier though – as I don’t have enough time to run any longer before work at the moment. I hope to be running 10km within the next few weeks.

My intake for today was:

  • Black Grapes
  • Nutrigrain Granola Bar
  • Nutrigrain Blueberry Bar
  • Leftover Fajita Chicken w/ Couscous
  • Small M&S Chocolate Bunny (oops.. I fell victim to office temptations – it was amazing!)
  • Fillet Steak w/ Asparagus, Tenderstem Broccoli and Tomatoes

After an unbelievably good steak (my favourite dinner) it’s time to chill out on the sofa with Brandon!
