Going For Gold Status Report! Things are going well this week. I have been feeling completely overwhelmed by things lately so taking it One Meal At A Time seems to be helping.
My swimming teacher had to cancel last night and I contemplated crawling into bed with a book. But I did Cathe’s Pyramid Upper Body instead. The woman is not paying me to say this, but her goods work well for me coz it’s the bossiness of a Body Pump class without having to leave the house and your crappy breakfast-encrusted t-shirt. PUB is my Lazy Day DVD because it only uses dumbbells – I just reach right under the bed for em. As opposed to workouts that use the barbell, which involves moving furniture and futzing around changing the plates. You have to be in the right mood for that sort of palaver!
So it’s lazy, but it’s hard. You start with 12 reps at the lightest weight, then 10 with medium, 8 with your heaviest, then work your way back down through the pyramid. Its very fast, simple and efficient. You just whip through each body part – chest, back, shoulders, triceps, biceps – and before you know it you’re a crumpled, whimpering heap on the bedroom floor. But then you have to recover for the abs section.
I only did the 30-minute Pyramid Up last night, but I think when you feeling out of sorts it’s better to do something, anything, exercise-y, rather than sit on your arse. I have to keep the momentum going and keep moving forward. Pow!
I also wanted to say cheers for all the lovely comments and emails of late, they are soooo appreciated. Thank you. Thank you…
A lot of people have mentioned deep-water running, would anyone mind saying a bit more about that? Google is rather vague. My gym only has Old Lady Aqua classes on weekday mornings, obviously nae good to me; so is this something I could pursue on my own?
Hope you all have a tops weekend 🙂
