Sore, Sore and Stiff….

Old creaky bones…..

Old bones....

Old bones….

Yesterday after the Super Wednesday, I really was tired…

Maybe that was why I had the big rant about smoking.



I felt good but was really physically tired.

Same today but then I always feel that after doing weights…

The weights now are pyramid ones so it is until I am  exhausted basically….prefer running:)

But the cross training protects my legs from injury so I can run….

Damned if I do and Damned if I don’t!!

But today I am 100 grams off the goal I said I wanted to reach by Xmas.

Eating is clean, all within limits .

My box of scorched almonds lasted 11 days!!!

That is a record…..36 almonds to a box  and 28 calories per almond:)

 I am going to go all out and up the ante and add another Kg to that total by Xmas day….

So 1 kg to go by Boxing day….will give myself another day:)

are you?

are you?

I have also signed up to do the Janathon….so some exercise everyday for all of January….

Not as easy as it sounds I reckon!!!

Granted I do something 12 days out of 14, as I am an all or nothing person….

So it’s all exercise or all slobbiness:)

like to do this BUT the results suck!!

Hubby has new exercise goal for January too so that is good too…

For his Xmas present, I have brought him 1 month of boot camp (2 x mornings a week outdoors)

and 5 Personal training sessions:)

May help him cut down at least on the fags!!



 I thought good sleep tonight and then tomorrow 45 minute run and then 1 hour plyometrics at the gym combined with rowing.

So twelve minutes rowing then 8 minutes plyometrics x 3….

Go hard out until Boxing day and then rest for one day:)

The problem is what about when I finish my programme?


This is the difficulty with all these programs, is they are 5-6 days a week, hard out, designed to get you in shape etc over 12-16 weeks BUT…..

the difficulty is in the maintaining after…..

I am happy to run every day but it’s not great for my leg…

Hmmmm, will ponder that later on…..

Will leave you today with 2 things that make me laugh….

When I was little, I used to read a book called ” My cat likes to hide in boxes”……

Minni cat in the box....

Minni cat in the box….

And this guy…well, what can I say?

Not quite what we had in mind!!
