Running, Shopping, Eating

The heart-rate monitor that comes with the Garmin. It was too big, even on the smallest adjustment, so I tried tucking it in to the band of my sports bra, but that failed too! So a lot of my run was spend hitching it back up until I gave up, stopped, took it off, and ran holding it! I’ve tied a knot in it now, so hopefully it’ll be okay next time!
I bought the white version a while back, and I love it, so when I saw this blue one on sale I snapped it up!
Pre-exercise brekkie was my usual PB on toast, and post-workout breakfast was choco-banana oatmeal:
And then my family hit Bluewater shopping centre…again! Although thankfully we got in and out easily, unlike yesterday! And I got some awesome purchases today!
Nike tempo shorts were half price! They came in tons of different colours (I have a black/green/white pair already) but I ended up going with simple black+white, because it’ll go with anything on top!
Asics Gel Cumulus 2 reduced to £30! After trying on thousands of pairs of running shoes, I fell in love with these! Although I don’t need a new pair quite yet, I’m buying them in advance to save some money. But I don’t know if I’ll be able to resist the temptation of wearing them! They’re much better than my current Asics, and are cheaper than they were too!
After all that bargain-hunting, dinner was consumed at Nando’s restaurant. I had a ‘portobello mushroom and grilled halloumi cheese burger’ without the halloumi and with a mixed leaf salad on the side.
The side salad was huge! It was perfect- I was really craving greens after eating so much junk recently!
So tell me, have you bought any sale bargains? And do you crave certain foods after eating a lot of junk?
Tomorrow I’m going to an early BodyPump class (I haven’t been in a couple of weeks, so it’s going to hurt!), and my post will be a recap of my 2010, which has certainly been a very eventful year!
Hope you’ve had a great day too!
