Sometimes, the best laid plans slip. That just about sums up my year to date: here I am, looking at the end of January, and instead of being firmly on track by now as I usually would be, I’m still feeling the hangover from the festive period. I’ve had lots on, and I’ve been busy every weekend which has been wonderful, but the downside is that my routine has suffered.
I did start off – yet again – with good intentions last week: on Monday I had Glo, which was ace! It was just what I needed to blow off some cobwebs and I worked hard, buring almost 600 cals. On Tuesday, I went to Trigger Point Pilates which was just what I felt I needed, and I think that I’m really benefitting from these classes overall. I also ate well at the start of the week. My work trip to Islay on Thursday meant that I didn’t manage back in time for PiYo, which didn’t really help at all as I find that Thursday nights really keep me focussed and on track heading into the weekend, not to mention that I love the class!
I then had a wonderful weekend away in Edinburgh to see Miss Saigon, and while I walked a lot and reached my step target each day, I did have yet another foodie blow-out. Oh dear. And so here I am, yet again, starting afresh today. My kit is packed and ready for Glo, and I’ve eaten well today so I’m starting this week as I mean to go on. I know that it will be another challenging end to this week with another trip away, and I won’t manage to PiYo or VeraFlow yet again, but I’m determined to do better than I did last week.
So for anyone else feeling the same way, I hope this helps:
Let’s do this!

How was Miss Saigon? I love it but it always makes me cry!
No tears from me, but I love it too, it’s one of my faves. It was brilliant, they really took the West End to Edinburgh 👍🏻 The Engineer was good- but Jon Jon Briones is still my favourite!
A few years since I’ve seen it live, but my sister and I saw the screening at the cinema for the 25th anniversary. She kept laughing at me trying not to cry 😂
The cinema screening was fantastic! I first saw Miss Saigon years ago too and I was lucky enough to see it again in the West End in 2014 with the revival cast, the same cast that was featured in the 25th Anniversary show. My friend Pauline who came on Friday had seen the original cast 25 years ago, including Lea Salonga! Incidentally she’s also just seen Hamilton in the West End, lucky thing!
Wow! Now I’m definitely jealous!
