I never realised how much I love roasted tomatoes. I think because they are so sweet, I am really enjoying the flavour of them. I’m noticing how things taste more now that I’m having no processed foods or treats. Also, as I’m eating less food and aware I’m only allowed certain foods, I am eating slower and appreciating that I have food to eat. I am practising gratitude, finding things to be grateful and thankful for in my life. I have so much more than those living in dire poverty in rural Northern Malawi. https://gofund.me/ca9c1629
Tuesday was quite an easy day, I didn’t find it too much of a struggle. In the morning Stuart and I were packing boxes to go to Malawi. There’s lots more to do but it certainly feels good to have made a start on boxing up the donations to start filling The Bananabox Trust warehouse at Dundee to await the next container.
I cycled 15km on my exercise bike. I seem to struggle a bit when i’m at 7km thinking whether I should stop at 10km or keep going….if I keep reading my book that’s on my tablet beside me and not look at the counter then I manage to get over 10km and keep going until 15km.
Wednesday – I’m tired although I’ve got through quite a lot of work this morning and have a meeting this afternoon, I’ll aim for 10km today on the bike and make sure I drink enough water. I am feeling like my mood is a bit low today…probably lack of sugar! At least I am over halfway in my challenge! I’ll pretend that I’m cycling downhill from here to the finish line lol. Thank you to those who have sent me messages of support. Also thank you if you’ve already donated to help build a school. I can’t do this challenge without your help so please, please donate if you can. All children deserve an education. It’s their only way out of poverty https://gofund.me/ca9c1629
Thursday – I asked Stuart to buy a bag of nuts for me and that was a mistake lol. I ate them between last night and this morning and they were soooo good! Salted cashew nuts and they were so tasty. I’m wondering if I needed the salt or if that’s just what I’m used to having but I must avoid those in future as I obviously cannot stop at a recommended ‘small handful’ whoops!! 10km done on my bike today! Altogether I’ve cycled over 200km now…that’s quite a lot when you add it up! So if you think I’m doing well (apart from the bag of nuts) please can you donate to my fundraiser to build a school? Please? https://gofund.me/ca9c1629 All children deserve the gift of education. Thanks for reading, Sarah x
