Hello and Welcome!

I am, and always have been, a notoriously bad blogger. But I'm back to give it another try, one more time.

I seem to have rediscovered my "pep" in recent times, and I'm ready to try some new things, and get back into the things that matter to me... at this stage, this chiefly involves getting fit and losing weight (again!)

The weekend round up

Well I'm not sure where that weekend went, but it could come back if it likes. Thank goodness for a long weekend next weekend. I am NOT WORKING on the long weekend, I'm seriously ready for a bit of a break.

I'm not sure I actually have a lot to report from the weekend that was, although I felt busy. On Friday night I worked late-ish, then cruised home and had a quiet one in front of the TV. My gym had a "festival of fitness" thing happening on Saturday which I was halfway tempted to go along to, but in the end I decided not to. If it was just for members I would have gone, but they do it as an open day/bring a friend type thing, and the classes get too damn crowded. The idea, though, is to see how many classes you can do back to back before you collapse. They were running Pump-Attack-Combat-Step-Balance all in a row, with a couple of RPMs at the same time as Pump and Combat so you could change into there. I think I would have only made it through 2 classes anyway!

So, on Saturday I was slow to get out of bed, enjoying laying there with the sun shining through the window. Once I got moving I did all the exciting stuff like washing and cleaning the house, then went grocery shopping, and called in on the parents to help out with a couple of things. In the evening I went out with the girls and saw The Beginners in town. Not a bad flick, a bit heavy and depressing at times, but worth a view.

Sunday was the usual early start for the markets, then lots of gardening and lots of cooking. I've got this week's meals all sorted and a couple even in the freezer. One thing I have certainly learned of late is that if I am not organised and don't have a stock of food ready to go, I'll eat something easy and crappy, and then I'll go crazy on a pile of other junk. No excuses this week, I'm all sorted.

And now for the week ahead. I dragged my sorry butt out of bed and made it to the 6:05 RPM class this morning, so that's a good start. I really don't like RPM, but I'm sucking it up because I'm sure it's good for me. I certainly wouldn't be doing it every day, but I think I can deal with once a week. I struggle with "cycling pain"... not injury pain, just the general good using-the-muscles pain. It's quite different from running pain or aerobics type pain, and to me it is oh-so-much worse. I really want to increase my threshold on that, and better condition my legs for cycling. And dragging myself off to RPM is the best way of doing that I think. It does make me cranky on a Monday morning though.

I was going to steal from Jess and make a "5 things I want to achieve today" list, but I actually can't be bothered. That doesn't auger well, does it? I'll just put one thing... get focussed at work and push out some work. I've been living on the procrastination train the last few weeks, and crap is piling up.

  1. I think you have to start Mondays off better! Being cranky is not the way to start the week :)
