Nine to go
Happy Monday …
I’m probably one of those strange people who doesn’t suffer from Mondayitus. I actually quite like Mondays, weekends are hard work, routines tend to go out the door and I find it harder to get everything done, even though I have more “time”.
So first things first .. the nine week picture.
I can’t visually see a difference in the photos, but I’m fitting into things I couldn’t just a few weeks ago, so its definitely coming off this hip/butt/waist area.
So last weeks goals were
- Do 7 pullups in a row, wide grip, no assistance
- Run 25 minutes in one go without stopping at least one cardio session this week
- Do two ab workouts.
I thought I aimed high, but obviously not high enough! I did at least four ab workouts (thank you Ludus) and I did the run Monday night. I even did an extra couple of 20 minute runs .. you do remember I hate to run don’t you 😉 The pullups I even caught on video, I did manage to do seven during some Ludus sessions, so I was hopeful when I did my progress update.
So I guess this week I had better;
- No Coke Zero from Monday-Friday. One can per day Saturday and Sunday.
- Complete the Contact Tri Series Narrowneck Race this weekend in under one hour.
- End each day by writing down something that happened that encouraged, touched or strengthened me.
My husband is reading this and cringing … I tend to have coke zero when Im hungry (which is obviously a lot)! But I dont think its helping with my measures, so out it goes! I manage fine during the day, so it may just be a case of habit rather than need. I guess we will soon find out.
Oh and Joe (aka Mr Ludus) is holding fitness tests soon, I’m in two minds about attending (they aren’t compulsory). I mean, I’d be interested .. but then again … I don’t get to eat a lot of fuel and beep tests and 300’s kind of require fuel … so I’m going to have a wee think .. feel free to share your thoughts.
Till next time
