Project 365 2017 #11

Week 11 of Project 365 2017 was full of different decisions - some better than others.

Project 365 2017 day 71 - Sofa move // 76sunflowers
Project 365 2017 day 72 - 5k in the wrong running pants // 76sunflowers
Project 365 2017 day 73 - 12 mile run // 76sunflowers
Project 365 2017 day 74 - Deep Heat // 76sunflowers
Project 365 2017 day 75 - Bedtime reading // 76sunflowers
Project 365 2017 day 76 - Friday sunshine // 76sunflowers
Project 365 2017 day 77 - Yoga decisions // 76sunflowers

Day 71
After 12 years we finally took the big sofa apart and moved it into our front room.
Day 72
A lovely yoga day with my little yogis followed by a 5k run in workout pants that are great for yoga but not so much for running - resulted in my fastest 5k in a while!
Day 73
Long run Tuesday with my running buddy leading me for 12 miles around her home town for a change of scenery.
Day 74
Not the best day at work today; a moment of madness saw me pick up a far too heavy box of book bags which meant a good dose of Deep Heat on my back tonight.
Day 75
A long day and my bedtime reading lasted all of 5 minutes before my eyelids drooped.
Day 76
A lovely sunny start to the day; a deep inhale and exhale sat in the car before I cleared the windscreen and set off to work.
Day 77
I headed up to Cirencester to meet up with a lovely yoga teacher trainer to discuss her course - all very exciting! It also meant I could pop into see my Cirencester buddy for a cuppa.

Project 365 2017 #10

Week 10 of Project 365 2017 was one of those weeks that was full on non-stop and snapping photos was kind of an after thought - but I will not give up on this project!

Day 64
The husband had a Wiggle bike ride with his brother today and then they came back home, with new girlfriend and in-laws too, for a roast prepared by me. I managed to do the chicken for everyone else and a vegan mushroom wellington for me.
Day 65
Monday and back to the Yoga Shed for home ed family yoga - I love my Mondays.
Day 66
Tuesday is now becoming long run day for me and my running partner in crime; today we hit 11 miles and I loved how her new runners stayed pristine whilst mine got filthy in the mud!
Day 67
Back to work so back to a bedtime photo; a bit of yoga reading and studying tonight.
Day 68
So nice to get home from work in the daylight now so I spent a few minutes down the garden admiring the daffodils.
Day 69
Friday and an early night with a DVD - How to be Single. It made me smile and I do like Rebel Wilson.
Day 70
I set the alarm to go out for a run this morning as I have no yoga classes to take this morning. A lovely 10k saying good morning to dog walkers and cyclists; a great way to start the weekend before dismantling a sofa!

Project 365 2017 #9

Week 9 of Project 365 for 2017 and the weather has been up and down - alongside my mood this week! I think I need a holiday.

Project 365 2017 day 57 - Vegan pancakes // 76sunflowers
Project 365 2017 day 58 - Afternoon sun // 76sunflowers
Project 365 2017 day 59 - Lacock & Reybridge run // 76sunflowers
Project 365 2017 day 60 - Evening yoga // 76sunflowers
Project 365 2017 day 61 - Miniature daffodils // 76sunflowers
Project 365 2017 day 62 - Uncle Joe's Mint Balls // 76sunflowers
Project 365 2017 day 63 - 10k run // 76sunflowers

Day 57
My lazy Sunday began with a practice run of Vegan pancakes ahead of Shrove Tuesday - no bananas were involved and the kiddos loved them so a success!
Day 58
A day of children's yoga classes followed by parent's evening for my two. Y6 SATs seems to be stressing everybody out, which makes me mad and sad at the same time, and I really feel for my girl. The boy though is thriving on the new curriculum - not sure where he gets his brains from. The sun shone on us all though on the walk back home.
Day 59
Long run day with my running buddy; 10 miles around Lacock and Reybridge.
Day 60
Back to work Wednesday so I needed to hit the yoga mat and burn some incense tonight.
Day 61
It was actually dry and bright when I got home from work so I had a wander down the garden and saw that the miniature daffodils were out.
Day 62
I discovered Uncle Joe's Mint Balls at the beginning of the year when we dropped in on one of the husband's friends in Bath. Said friend sent him home with a packet for me today!
Day 63
A lovely morning of children's yoga followed by a decent paced 10k was the order of the day today - it was sunny, warm and windy though so not my favourite conditions for a run. Pleased with the pace though.

Project 365 2017 #8

Week 8 of Project 365 2017 and it was back to school, work and routine.

Project 365 day 50 - Crocuses / Croci // 76sunflowers
Project 365 day 51 - 5k run // 76sunflowers
Project 365 day 52 - 10 mile run // 76sunflowers
Project 365 day 53 - Simple Things magazine // 76sunflowers
Project 365 day 54 - Jane Green book // 76sunflowers
Project 365 day 55 - Linda McCartney shredded 'duck' // 76sunflowers
Project 365 day 56 - Gaggle of geese // 76sunflowers

Day 50
I spent a good few hours in the garden today clearing back overgrown trees, digging over vegetable plots and general weeding. Hiding beneath one of the many shrubs I found these beautiful croci - or is it crocuses?
Day 51
No school or yoga class to run today and I managed to head out for a 5k run whilst everyone else was still in bed. My knee felt a bit niggly so when I got back I focused on some bridge work and vowed to do more of them to strengthen my glutes again.
Day 52
The children were back to school today and I was back in my routine of my Tuesday morning run with my running buddy. The knee held up for a fantastic 10 miles in the drizzle.
Day 53
Back to work so the photos return to bedtime snaps; tonight the last issue of my subscription to the Simple Things magazine.
Day 54
More reading tonight after a long day at work and some lovely yoga tonight - another book from Jane Green.
Day 55
A foodie photo for Friday and I loved Linda McCartney's shredded 'duck' which I added to a hoisin rice noodle stir fry.
Day 56
Back to teaching yoga classes this morning, which was lovely, then it was a lazy day before I booted my backside out the front door for 4 miles in yet more drizzle. On the way I passed a small gaggle of geese - if 4 geese are enough for a gaggle?
