Hello.

Ask me anything   I'm Emma O. I spend my days drawing, coding, eating, running and moaning. I've lost about 70lb and ran my first half marathon last year and will be training for my first marathon this year so I talk about running and weight loss quite a lot! I have epilepsy and tend to rant a lot about that. Oh and I like porridge/oatmeal a little too much...

It’s been a while since I’ve made overnight oats. Went for another early morning workout so I thought they’d be the perfect thing to pack and eat before work.
Oats, yoghurt, maple syrup, cinnamon and blueberries. Mmmm….
Loving morning workouts!

All the DOMS.

I didn’t realise it was raining until I left the flat but decided not to bother going back in to get my umbrella because my arms are so sore that holding it up for any length of time would be impossible. Ha!

Oh Body Pump how I’ve missed you.

Not yet, that flavour was sold out on the website. It might be best if I never try it though, I can’t leave Subway without getting one of their white choc and macadamia cookies so I’m worried it could lead to the same level of addiction :P

Attempted to make carbonara with gluten free pasta and it was… erm… interesting…

The pasta is actually alright and tastes good it just wasn’t quite as smooth as normal spaghetti and a bit sticky (may have overcooked it though) so when it came to mixing it with the eggs it sort of stuck together in a massive clump.

It tasted good at least!

Tried my 3rd clif bar flavour. NOM. Chocolate chip is currently in the lead though.

Went to Body Pump for the first time in months. They have all Les Mills branded equipment now which I tried to sneak a picture of. The class was awesome but I felt soooo weak, going to make it a regular thing and try and build some strength up again.

I’ve managed the gym 5 times this week and I’m feeling super :D

My bra and clif bars arrived!

Tested the bra out at the gym this morning and it was really good, very supportive and comfortable, will definitely be purchasing some more come pay day. Thanks for the shock absorber recommendation guys! My boobs are very pleased :P

I felt awesome when I got to the gym so I decided to do some interval training on the treadmill.

1 min at 9 km/h
1 min at 10 km/h
x 15

Then 20 min on the cross trainer.

Was the hardest I’ve managed to work in ages, I was dripping in sweat when I finished and felt like a bad ass.

I’m still super conscious that I have to take it easy but it was nice to be able to push myself a little bit. I felt more myself…

Currently resisting the urge to eat all the clif bars…

It’s arrived. I knew it was coming… my friend had posted his on FB earlier today.

I know not doing this marathon is the right decision with my epilepsy being all over the place and whatnot but it’s kinda hard letting go…
