Janathon 2021 day 7: the return of Shaun T

Banished as I am to my dining room (or working from home if you prefer) I decided to reintroduce a habit that I started during the first lockdown way back in March… Cardio lunchtimes! Today’s cardio session of choice was Alpha Cardio from Focus T25. As well as the jumping about, it was day 6…… Continue reading Janathon 2021 day 7: the return of Shaun T

Project Lockdown Fitness: days 78 – 82 – Exercise, she wrote…

There is something about working from home, exercising at home and generally staying at home apart from walking that makes you forget what has happened from one moment to the next… It appears to be Wednesday again here and I seem to have not posted since sometime last week… Ok…apparently by sometime last week, I…… Continue reading Project Lockdown Fitness: days 78 – 82 – Exercise, she wrote…

Project Lockdown Fitness: Day 75 & 77 – I’m not grumpy, I’m tired

I’m not grumpy I am tired was my tagline for monday this week. It wasn’t true as it happens, I was grumpy, and tired… It has been that sort of week so far tbh, my sleep has been somewhat broken and wierd and I have woken up feeling like I haven’t slept at all. This…… Continue reading Project Lockdown Fitness: Day 75 & 77 – I’m not grumpy, I’m tired

Project Lockdown Fitness: Days 59 – 71 – photographic round up and the start of Juneathon

No new paddingtons in this post…they can’t happen every week, sadly! Or every 2 weeks, as this blog covers two weeks… There have been some pretty excellent workouts though and some even better non scale victories 😀 Instead of a big list of all the exercise I have done I am going to put my…… Continue reading Project Lockdown Fitness: Days 59 – 71 – photographic round up and the start of Juneathon

Project Lockdown Fitness: Days 52-55 – Warning, there is a lot of colour coordination in here!

It is ridiculous how much I now colour coordinate with the shed gym! I swear it wasn’t on purpose! Its just that I really like orange at the moment…and it just happens that quite a bit of the gym kit we have managed to get hold of is orange… Of course my hair is orange…… Continue reading Project Lockdown Fitness: Days 52-55 – Warning, there is a lot of colour coordination in here!

Project lockdown fitness: Day 50 – rest day…

I was told, in no uncertain terms, by Mr Shaun T that I had to have a rest day… Well, not just me, everyone doing this 60 day challenge, it was on the calendar and everything. Then he posted this… I got the feeling he was serious about his rest day business… But if you’ve…… Continue reading Project lockdown fitness: Day 50 – rest day…

Project lockdown fitness: Days 44-49 mostly photos…

I said I wasn’t going to do posts that cover lots of days at the moment, because a) all the days are confusing, and 2) all the days are so full of training that these posts could become extremely long, and fairly repetitive… so I will break it down into picture collections which cover the…… Continue reading Project lockdown fitness: Days 44-49 mostly photos…

This week’s plan: Monday

Monday went pretty well… Mondays, typically are less active than other days of the week. Well that is true for me at least, I can’t speak for the rest of the world… I know the old whatsit about never missing a monday, and that mondays are for new starts, but that is not really true…… Continue reading This week’s plan: Monday
