Daily milestones!

I’ve got a lot on the list every day this week in order to finish my coursework, but so far (she says on Monday!) it’s getting done. I spent today finishing the most challenging coding module of the course – I’m glad it’s over, though tomorrow’s soft skills work will be challenging in a different way (I am a lot less comfortable when attempting to prepare things like presentations and elevator pitches than I am when learning to code).

Valentine’s Day has been nice, with a rare off-diet excursion into the land of chocolate and pizza. Back on plan tomorrow.

Ticking things off

Another short run…

…and then I headed to my second counselling session. I think it’s probably good to be able to talk about things, but I still feel a bit unfocused in the sessions. I am finding that some things are a bit clearer, but I need to spend more time writing everything down in order to process that.

Then it was another afternoon doing admin and house stuff. Looking forward to more running adventures this weekend!

Cadbury's Roses
Geth brought these home as a Valentine’s Day extra. Carefully fitted some into the day’s eating plan!

Gradual progress

A typical busy Thursday. I did my speed run first thing, went to Slimming World (another half a pound off this week, still crawling slowly back to target range), and then went to Pilates in the evening. That’s our current Pilates course finished, so the next couple of Thursdays will be slightly less busy.

Geth and I didn’t buy cards or really do anything for Valentine’s Day (we normally have takeaway, but we’re trying to avoid that now we’re both on Slimming World), but he did bring me back some tasty ginger beers last night, so I’m enjoying one now.

Another hectic day tomorrow! Hoping next week will be a little more sedate.
