So this weekend and coming week will be the true test. I am determined. I'm determined not to go bonkers in London and to get right back to gymming it 5/6 days out of 7. IN fact I will set myself the challenge of going to the gym Monday - Friday next week. Hold me to it, ok?! I've faffed around gaining and losing the same 14lbs for a year now. NO MORE.
Today I am off work (Friday!), so I had a training session this morning - oh dear LORD I really do think he's trying to kill me - death by circuit training!
10 mins run @ 11kph
10 squats with a heavy netball type thing
10 squats raising ball with left hand
10 squats raising ball with right hand
20 ab curls on (in)stability ball
10 of these weird leg lifts whilst in full plank on the (in)stability ball
15 full press ups
10 bell ringers left
10 bell ringers right
15 upright row
1 minute running on the evil trampoline thing
10 step ups with 5kg weights left and then right
20 tricep dips on bench
20 lateral arm raises
60 seconds fast jabs on punch bag
dead weight lifts (10)
10 of this weird thing with a pole where you use the weight of the pole like a shot put type of action
60 seconds fast rowing
15 bicep curls
I did this whole thing 3 freakin' times! And each time he kept upping the reps and each time I complained upping them again! (Memo to me: Keep gob shut in future sessions!) My face has never been so red, I feared an aneurism was imminent..... ;)
I am seriously cream crackered now, but did manage to ride my bike over to Rachel's to get weighed because I can't go tomorrow (Did I mention I'm going to see Britney?! :)
Then I had coffee with my mum and then made lunch: I used 2 pieces of wholewheat ww bread (pretty disgusting but all we had) and made an 'open sandwich' - check me out learning from all you bloggers! On the bread I put tuna mixed with Hellman's Extra Light mayo and chilli flakes and coriander. On top of the tuna I sliced a pickled onion, added a dollop of red cabbage to the plate, 1.5 points of plain cottage cheese, yellow pepper, spinach, cherry tomatoes and no points salad dressing. I AM STUFFED! But look how pretty!!!! And all for 5 points!
Now I am having a nice cuppa while I catch up on blogs (loving your work people, loving your work) and gchat with amazing Anna.
God I love being a lady of leisure! The only thing I have left to do today is decide on an outfit for the concert tomorrow.....oh decisions, decisions!
Heaps of love - have a fab weekend!!
