20th July – a great start!

Hiya all, hope your Mondays have been OK.

I am so chuffed with my day! I wanted today to be a good exercise day, and it was.

Let’s start at the beginning…

So sleep was crap.

For breakfast I had my usual 40g natural nuts and 75g dried fruits along with a cup of tea and 200ml of milk.

Then I visited with my friend, and while there we both worked out on her exercise bike and rowing machine. Oh my WORD!!! the bike nearly had me! I got on it, the pedals didn’t move! Angela thought I was just not used to it, so i ended up hard slogging through 5 minutes of sheer hell! I thought my legs were gonna burn off! Then we swapped and that’s when Angela realised i wasn’t making it up! She got off and fiddled with something or other, then peddled happily away… grrr!!!

So, we did 5 minutes on each piece of equipment three times. It felt like hours! But we did it, pushing each other on, encouraging one another not to give up.

During my time with Angela, I had a glass if water and 2 cups of tea.

On returning home, I immediately got on with my resistance training from youtube! Go me!!

Then I prepared lunch. Salad, hummus, couscous and chicken with a glass of water.

The afternoon was relaxing with Paul making banana and oat cookies. We had two each as they wouldn’t fit into the biscuit barrel!

Had this banana and oat cookie with a cuppa

I also wanted to go for a walk today, so we did this before dinner.

And then for dinner, sockeye salmon with rice and sweetcorn and another glass of water.

I’ve had another glass of water and a babybel cheese portion.

Here’s the fresh challenge board, you’ll see I’ve removed youtube cardio and written in cardio because I’ll probably go to Angela’s again at some point this week. I’ve also upped my walk target to four times this week. I’ve kept water and dairy as is because I think it’ll always be a challenge for me to take in.

Now Paul and I are going to enjoy just relaxing for an hour or so in the garden, with a cuppa, and…

What is it about a fireplace that makes a person feel so relaxed?

Good night my friends.
