MONDAY -DAY 8
My favourite month is here! Full of birthdays and meet ups with friends, I can’t wait.
This morning I tried the new HIIT workout on Beach Babe 4. It is deceitful! The moves look easy but then halfway through doing them, it. Is. Hard. Felt good for doing it after though.
All I can think is that I want all of their workout outfits.
It was nice having the extra day off for Bank Holiday – managed to get a lot of meal prep done. 4 batches of cous cous, slow cooker five bean chilli, rice and boiled eggs. I’m switching my breakfasts to porridge this week and no fruit for snacks. Gotta keep your body guessing!
The cinnamon french toast from the Bikini Programme is lovely!
TUESDAY – DAY 9
I didn’t get a very good sleep last night – feeling really groggy. Definitely no cardio for me today. I tried the Kettleflow routine. I do prefer Kettlebells to be less gentle (this routine is Yoga combined with Kettlebells) but it was a good one for the morning.
I was really wanting to do Kickboxing all afternoon, but by the time I got home I was beginning to get a headache (the thought of jumping around made it worse!) so I just did the new Tush It Good routine. LOVED IT! The style was like K&K’s old videos and they made it so fun. Definitely going to do that routine again.
WEDNESDAY – DAY 10
Another broken sleep! My alarm went off and I wanted to sleep but I made myself get up anyway. Rock Your Body was on the schedule again so I did that – liked it a lot more this time round. I tried an old routine too – Surfers Paradise. It was quite challenging! If I had more time and energy I would have done it 3 times through. Gets me quite breathless!
Zumba was sooo busy this evening but it was good fun. That adds another 4 miles for my 100 By Summer challenge!
I caught up with some blogs and saw this post from Body Posi Panda – I really really agree with her here. Yea I have taken some before and after pictures in the past but it was out of curiosity to see my exercise was changing my figure, but that wasn’t why I was exercising. I didn’t even realise people are tagging her in pictures like that. No one has a clue! Idiots.
I also caught up with Bear Grylls – The Island. They had been practically starving the whole month and the doctors decided to check everyone’s weight. The men were horrified by how much they had lost (1 guy had lost 20cms round his waist and looked so so thin), then the girls got weighed. Perfect example of Western culture and how society has controlled everyone’s views without us realising…they were all happy with their weight loss. Um, this is from starvation for christ sake. Our culture needs to change big time!
THURSDAY – DAY 11
I did set my alarm to get up and do the scheduled workouts, but Zumba always knackers me out! S I had an extra hour in bed and got over 8 hours sleep yay!
No time for exercise as I stayed over my friends house straight after work. I did do some walking so will track another mile!
FRIDAY – DAY 12
Had a beautiful lunchtime walk in the sun and earned 3 miles. There were some baby geese and some other baby duck type things that were so cute! I don’t know what sort of bird it is but I think they look really cool.
SATURDAY + SUNDAY – DAYS 13 + 14
There is not much to say about these days apart from that it was such a write off. 30th birthday party + free food + free alcohol = lazing about in the sun. So fun!
