One day at a time
One day at a time. Just one day at a time.
Survived day one of the new regime – didn’t train this morning, I don’t do Monday mornings in the gym. But did have a dance class tonight, so I did get some exercise in. There’s just something about Monday mornings that kills me. Although I did celebrate ‘No I don’t have kids yet and that’s OK’ day yesterday (otherwise known as ‘Sunday’. Nothing to do with Mother’s Day!) with a small sleep in and my fitness test, I would rather get up early on a Sunday morning and hit the gym than a Monday. I think that it has to do with the fact that I am so not a morning soul and facing an early, early start on the first day of the week is just depressing!
So first training session tomorrow – I am looking forward to getting back in the gym and pumping some iron. I am woman hear me roar. Or whimper.
Diet today, however was spot on. If anyone’s wondering about the 12WBT food – I can attest that it has greatly improved in the last couple of years and the plan is a lot more sensible. I gave this a go a couple of years ago and felt like I was throwing loads of food away – eg. buy a bag of bean sprouts to use a handful in one stir fry. The recipes now are a lot less wasteful and there is also a ‘left overs’ meal which I don’t believe was in the plan in the early days. Great idea! So when I look in the fridge on Saturday and see what we haven’t gone through, it will force me to get creative in the kitchen.
I have to add too; thanks to the small child I passed yesterday whilst gallumping up the street doing my fitness test run – I was starting to struggle immensely, then hear a small voice shout from the other side of the road “run faster!”. His poor Dad was mortified. But thanks for the encouragement kid – although I am sure that I lose precious seconds laughing as I was jogging along.
Hope everyone has had a good Monday.
