Last week was a real write off. I started Zoloft again which messed up my stomach and made me really lethargic. If that wasn't enough I was then hit with the flu. The couch and bed were my best friends and I went through two boxes of tissues. Lovely.
Last week's goals;
- Skate Sunday Done and it was fantastic!
- At least five shakes Yes
- At least one Ease into 5k work outs I did one, a shitty one with mum on Monday. Our walking speed was quicker than our 'running' speed.
Total write off.
The only exercise I managed to do was skate Sunday, the pitiful Ease into 5k work out and climb the awesome spiderweb thing at New Farm playground three times. That thing is fun! I did have an eight year old bully the first time I went up but his mum told him off.

As for diet? Well yesterday alone I managed to consume half a packet of chips, two pieces of Black Forest Cake, a piece of Carrot Cake, hot dog with onion and cheese, three pieces of chicken nibbles, soft drink and a banana. Real healthy.
Skating was awesome. Possibly the best week yet. We learned how to start (running on toe stops, duck run and pushing off), 180 knee stops and we even got to do our first 25 in 5 (25 laps in 5 minutes). I managed to get just shy of 23. Not too bad seeing as I was dehydrated and didn't exercise or skate all week. I've decided that I'll be doing this phase (phase one) again so I have the basics really down. So in seven weeks time I'll have the chance to do 25 in 5 again and I plan to smash it.
I'm giving up the Ease into 5k too. I'm not a runner. I don't enjoy running and never have. Hell if zombies attack I'll chuck on my skates and skate from them. Running sucks. I don't need to be a runner to be a skater and I'm more than fine with that.
This week I'm back on track. Definitely skating yesterday has given me the motivation I need. I may still be in bed but I'm having a healthy shake and plan on going for a nice long skate on the River Walk today.
