Day 102: Neither rain nor snow nor glom of nit

Good afternoon 🙂 It rained on Saturday and it was definitely glom of nit this morning when I got up to go to PT and it was still dark, we will just have to see what effect snow has on my dedication! (I can’t believe I got to day 102 without a Terry Pratchett reference!)…… Continue reading Day 102: Neither rain nor snow nor glom of nit

Day 98 (part 1): what? you want me to be more aggressive?

I finally managed to get up and work out in the morning…but it was a prearranged Personal Training session so I really had no choice. But, that said…it was good to get up and get going…even if I did really really want more sleep! Once I had dragged myself to the gym…I remembered just as…… Continue reading Day 98 (part 1): what? you want me to be more aggressive?

Day 88: I ran on a treadmill and I didn’t die or fall down

Ok…the treadmill thing was not the main focus of yesterday’s work out, and I only actually went on it for 4 mins…but It is a pretty big achievement for me given my irrational fear of treadmills… Yesterdays activity was my weekly PT session and it was awesome!! It was a combination PT session / new…… Continue reading Day 88: I ran on a treadmill and I didn’t die or fall down

Day 74: I think Matt the Trainer might be trying to kill me…

Good evening 🙂 At the point where he handed me a 20 kg kettle bell, I asked Matt the Trainer if he was trying to kill me. He replied that he was, but in a good way… this was near the end of the session. It is a really big kettle bell too…much bigger than…… Continue reading Day 74: I think Matt the Trainer might be trying to kill me…

Day 65: Personal Training…on a Sunday!

Good evening 🙂 Yesterday (as you might be able to tell…) was Sunday, and I for some reason, organised a Personal training session, at 9 am. Sounds enthusiastic…well yes it was, but it was excellent 🙂 personal training is definitely my favourite work out of the week, I enjoy it as much as dancing. It…… Continue reading Day 65: Personal Training…on a Sunday!

Day 60 (part 2) Confusing a body balance class…

good afternoon 🙂 The second update on day 60’s activity is a tale of woe and hardship… ok…it isn’t. It is, however, a tale of a really hard personal training session, possibly the hardest one to date. On the plus side I didn’t have to take my life in my hands trying to get on…… Continue reading Day 60 (part 2) Confusing a body balance class…

Day 53: the reward for getting fitter is working harder!

Good evening 🙂 I awoke this morning, achy and with very heavy legs after all the running and circuits from yesterday! Throughout the day as I struggled to stay awake, and even abandoned my normal new rock boots in favour of doc marten shoes, I wondered if this boded badly for my up coming PT…… Continue reading Day 53: the reward for getting fitter is working harder!

Day 46: Can I kick it?

Yes I can 🙂 sorry about the cheesy  90s music reference, I just couldn’t resist it! For those of you that are not aware of the music to which I am referring it is “Can you kick it” by A Tribe Called Quest from 1991. Why did I make such a reference…well you might guess…… Continue reading Day 46: Can I kick it?

Day 39: wakefulness through exercise

Good evening 🙂 I started today very tired, my early morning attempts to drag myself out of bed to go for a run started promisingly but soon after that went awry when I put myself back into bed and slept for another 45 minutes! However during the day I made a concerted effort to become…… Continue reading Day 39: wakefulness through exercise

Day 35: Early morning PT wake up

Good evening 🙂 due to a combination of yesterdays lack of motivation, and Tuesday’s postponement of my pt session, I decided to have a pt session early this morning to get it out of the way. It was a shock to the system and quite an abrupt way to wake up. I have to say,…… Continue reading Day 35: Early morning PT wake up
