52 in 52: Weekly round up week 14

It’s a super quick post this morning, because I’m on my way out camping!!

Put simply, I still didn’t blog anything last week. I did manage to cook up a new recipe (chicken tagine dish) and get a gorgeous photo of the sunrise though, so that’s March done! 

 

This weekend while I’m out camping, weather permitting, I’m going to do some photography of the night sky. I can’t wait. I’ve borrowed my friend’s amazing wide angle lens, got my tripod and remote ready, and more than happy to sit in a chair and wait.

52 in 52: Weekly round up week 5

52 things in 52 weeks

A bit late this week, but it’s in nonetheless!

Newly completed

  • Get a massage (ouch – check out the post here)
I think as compensation I should organise myself a relaxing massage for later in the year too!
  • Photograph a sunrise (January edition)

I laid out on my hammock on the last day of the month and watched the sunrise, it was beautiful. So I took two photos.

Aim to complete this week

  • I have completed the autoimmune protocol, so I just need to blog about that one before I consider it complete
  • Sign up for the 12 week challenge at the gym

This has already been completed, as I’ve already signed up. But this week we have our first session (preseason?) so I wanted to wait until it’s clear I’m in there. I’m aiming to be very competitive with this 12 week challenge, and writing weekly about that will help to keep my motivation up. Anyone who is skeptical about these programs can just park that for the moment, and wait to see if the results (long term results) speak for themselves.

Holy moses, the first month of the year is nearly over! It feels like 2015 only got underway, yet I’ve blinked and so much time has passed! Still, 11 wonderful and challenging months lay ahead, and I’m looking forward to it.

Newly completed

None for this week, but that’s not surprising since I wasn’t expecting anything.

I went for a run on the treadmill at the gym, and my watch showed that I ran 5km in under 30mins, 29mins in fact. That is one of my 52 in 52s, however to put it bluntly, I consider distance on the treadmill to be BS. Thus I’m not considering it to be done. It will be done when I’m running outside, and my watch with GPS functionality switched on confirms it was indeed 5 km. In the meantime, I’ll just focus on running for 30mins odd straight on the treadmill (I’d prefer to run outside, but sometimes weather dictates the inside run).
