I can’t believe I’ve been without coffee for nearly a week. For me this has been a huge lifestyle change. My husband still keeps forgetting and tries to offer me beer, coffee or juice. Which does add a slight extra level of difficulty to an already interesting challenge – it’s almost as if he is trying to catch me off-guard.
This morning has been fun – my husband and I went to go an see a house. So hopefully we can get this one before it goes… We’ve lost out on 3 already 😦 I’m looking forward to getting one so I can get started on planning a re-decorate! Although when I got back to my mother-in-laws I got offered coffee again. I’m definitely going to have to be on my guard today!
In addition to only drinking water I’ve also found a training plan for a 10K race for beginners from the RNLI. It’s a really comprehensive guide if – like me – you have no experience with running or other speeds above a gentle pace. I’ve been starting out the plan on week 1, which hasn’t been too strenuous. I’m hoping to sign up for the Southampton 10K in April – just figure that some extra time to get ready could be a good idea….
For those that are interested, here’s a picture of all my knitted squares so far. I’m really looking forward to when the blanket is finished – hopefully it will look fantastic in whichever home I end up in.
Even for all the healthy drinking (I went for a meal at my parents and had to refuse wine!), my diet hasn’t been fantastic this weekend. I’m pretty sure all I actually ate was pizza (x 3) and a sandwich. Although the Pizza was veggie for 2 of them… so that’s ok right?
I’m not just doing this for the health benefits. Did you know I’m also trying to raise money for the RNLI? I’m not allowed another cup until 5pm on Friday 12th June 2015 to try and raise money for the RNLI – you can donate on my justgiving page here.
