Today: 11 and 12. Keeping Up Appearances!

25 Aug

Day 11 was a warming of the soul kind of day. I knew I wanted to go to the gym, so I did.

It was extremely satisfying to decide i wanted to do it, not because I had to or that anything was dependent on it, but because I wanted to.

I can’t stand up properly now, but it’s a good kind of ache 🙂

Lots of different leg press positions! Wide leg, narrow leg and doing my calf muscles too… that was quite hard! I’m still not confident enough to tackle the free weight section. There are just alot of people there who seem to know what they are doing… and I haven’t s bloody clue!

Day 12 for me is reading up an ebook a friend recommended. By Kayla Itsines, I’m ignoring the fact it says it’s for ‘Bikini body’ as i hate shit like that, but focussing on the ideas in it. Which are good!

I’m quite excited to do a shopping list for it… get on all those healthy ideas 🙂

Anyway…. short post from me today!

Today: Day 4, ‘E’ is for English Tea Party

16 Aug

Yesterday’s reading was a welcome change to my usual bed time routine, making me go to bed just a bit earlier to wind down, I think I ended up with a better nights sleep!

Except for the building alarm going off at like 6am…. ugh… You win some you lose some I guess!

Today was date day, every two weeks me and the hubby take it in turns to do a date that has somethign to do with a letter of the alphabet. My turn this week, and I had ‘E’.

I decided to do English Tea Party type theme…. bit hard as the hubs isn’t a fan of tea! But we made scones, and had cream and strawberry Jam!
