15 September 2011 – b2b day 11

IMG_7311

Calories burned today, 852. It started with beach body toning exercises, not a great calorie burn but my abs certainly know about it and my inner thighs. I walked to and from work and a quick stroll at lunch time with the back pack, 80 mins in all there. I have just done 20 mins step/kettlebells to finish the day. Continue reading

14 September 2011 – feel the burn

IMG_6939

Today I burnt 925 calories with beach body this morning for 30 mins, 55 mins walking with my back pack and 30 mins kettlebells/step. I really pushed myself on the walk to work. There was a woman walking quite fast about 200 yards in front of me and I decided I was going to overtake her before we got to the other side of the bridge. I made it with time to spare and then just carried on walking super fast. Poor woman didn’t evern know she was in a race. Continue reading

12 September 2011 – the small issue of coffee

20120915-140729

Today I started with the pump it up beach body workout for 30 mins. It’s a tough old workout and I certainly needed a shower afterwards. I had my normal weekday muesli, fromage frais, fresh orange juice cocoa combo for breakfast. Sadly the walk to work didn’t happen because of the gales and rain and Commando gave me a lift it. I did manage to get a bit of walking in at lunchtime though with my backpack. Continue reading

It was tough going back to normal hours and normal calls today but all in all not a bad day at work. I must say I’m feeling worn out tonight though. The day started with a 30 min pump it up session then my normal weekday breakfast. After a quick shower it was off to walk to work with my back pack. I also managed a little walk at lunch time.

6 September 2011 – back to basics day 2

20120915-140729

What an interesting day! I had to be at work for eight o’clock this morning to get the coach to Reading where we would be testing the systems at the contingency office. I got up extra early and had my normal breakfast. There was no chance for my morning exercise and the pouring rain meant a bus ride to work but I did take my back pack with the 16lb weights.

Grow your own – 4 June 2011

Right now I’m concentrating on healthy eating and that involves eating as fresh and organic as I can. What better than to grow my own veg then? With this in mind I’ve spent the afternoon out in the garden weeding and cutting back. My little veg garden is doing really well. I have pods on the pea plants that look like they will be ready to pick in the next week or so. The tomato plants have their first lot of flowers just coming out and the first spring onions are beginning to swell. Continue reading
