Mama OWL Blog: Project 365 / W2

Project 365 / W2

Saturday, 10 January 2015

Welcome to week two of #Project365, don't forget I'm also be posting them on Instagram and you can follow my hashtag #Shep365 if you would like to view my progress day by day.


004 - It's back to school time tomorrow after a lovely lazy Winter break so the books and laptop are out and studying is in progress ready for AS mocks during the week. Lots of pressure on young shoulders but she's a smart kid and as long as she stays focused she'll do just fine.


005 - Back to U14 Football training for J and the Mister after the Christmas break. I had to lurk around in the car park like some sort of weirdo after walking there to meet them after my welcome meeting at P6P & arriving early.


006 - And so begins C25K, week 1 day 1 completed but unfortunately managed to seriously shred my heels with new trainers. Limped through my P6P fitness test but did my best, so far so good.


007 - Making better choices for my meals, drinking lots of water and not having chocolate, junk or fizzy drinks. I feel better already. I tried out this chicken & apple stir-fry recipe (with red onions, garlic & a sprinkling of cinnamon) for lunch and was pleasantly surprised at how great it tasted.


008 - Our first week getting back to reality also means back to sporting activities, and Thursday was E's first day back in the gym after Christmas. She really enjoyed seeing her friends and getting on the equipment again, she's really very good on the bars and loves swinging around and flinging herself over them!


009 - On our walk back from L's usual Friday evening swimming lesson, the church spire through the trees was all lit up and looked beautiful in the twilight.


010 - I'm usually a white & two sugars kinda gal, but I am embracing black coffee and finding that I actually prefer it this way. My VonShef coffee machine is my best friend, I love having a steaming pot of coffee ready in the mornings when I get up.

  3. There is a lot of pressure on children now for GCSE's and A Levels and it's such a shame. I'm sure she'll be fine :-) Well done for starting C25K! I tried this week but chickened out of the weather!! Look forward to reading about your progress :)

    1. It's exhausting isn't it, I only have 3/4 days with no activities or clubs, Tuesdays as of next week we will have two after school clubs, two swimming lessons and a tae kwon-do lesson! The things we do for them, haha.

  11. Wow, you've stopped having milk *and* sugar in your coffee? Brave! I've gone the other way and started replacing milk with double cream!
    Thanks for linking up with #WeekendBlogHop!
