FAB night out!

Last night went out with these Canadian people I talked about it my blog. Well I had such a fab fab fab night. There are so friendly and funny. They made me feel so comfortable from the moment I got there. I was stuck in traffic so arrived an hour late. Not the best thing when you meet people for the first time. So was quite stressed ... But that quickly disappeared and haven't stopped laughing for most of the night. They told me that they expect me to see now every Friday and that I should bring stuff to stay over so if I am too tired or pissed I can stay at their place. I found this so very nice. It was just great that I was able to feel so comfortable with people that I've never met before. What a difference when I went out to the pub with the running club where I felt so out of place!!!

So when I got back home I was on such a high couldn't stop smiling. And it took me ages to wind down and go to bed. So in the end turned off my light at 2.30am..... :)

Then this morning I had a run with my PT. It was good. I burned about 760 in 1.20hr. So was very impressed with that. It is the most I've burned in one session running. So happy bunny!!
Then we went for a coffee and finished off my chat with him. And I was very happy of how he reacted and he has set me some goals such as aiming to reduce my time for my 5K to anything under 34min. We will do more sprint where you go flat out. So I suppose it is going to be like this HIIT that a lot of people are raving about. He told me too that I should do the Santa run at the end of November. It is a 5K run. He wants me to do the bleep test (not sure if that is what it is called...). That is apparantly a good way to measure your fitness.
And he is going to measure me on a monthly basis. And when I have good result then I will get a treat such a massage from him. And if I don't do well he will put me on the treadmill. That is definitely the worst thing. I so hate this piece of equipment. Just the thought of it makes me grumpy!!!! But that will motivate me even more... So all in all the chat went very well and I was still on a high from my evening out and then my great run and all the goals set. So couldn't ask for more .... untill he measured me!!!!!!
He did all the measurement with his caliper. And then the result was that I had 40% fat!!! I was so disappointed. Almost half of me is still fat... I know you shouldn't get hung up on numbers. But somehow I still do!! Some lovely people on WLR have made me realize that I was doing well and that these calipers are not 100% accurate. And that the most important thing is that I see the difference in the mirror and feel it in my clothes. And they were so right!! So want to thank them to cheer me up again!! :) The glass is half full and not half empty....

Now I am going out again. And I am really looking forward to that evening out. These are some of my closed friends and I will get lots of hugs... I can't wait for that!! :) And lots of food and drinks... Not the best thing but haven't eaten much as didn't have much time. And after my big run today I deserve it. And will enjoy every single minute of it!!! :)

And today my closest friend in Belgium has send me some of my favorite Belgian chocolates. Yum Yum.... Hope will still have some left by the end of this month and won't eat them in one go!!!! So that is another goal to still have some left by the end of November. Now hopefully that I've put it in black and white it will help me stay motivated....

All these goals I have all of a sudden!!

Sounds like an absolutely lovely, evening, what a great boost!

Mmm...we had Belgian choc olates in the office. Luckily after going through the box (ie ransacking it) I found a lot of them were pralines and though I'd still eat them if I was in one of my chocmonster spells, I'd rather leave them most of the time. Had some nice caramels though...*drools*
