Good morning, everyone. Despite having an energetic day yesterday, I am wide awake way too early. I've long since given up on trying to nod off again when it's like that so here I am, tap-tap tapping at the keyboard. With any luck I will get a bit more snooze a bit later.
Yesterday was another gloriously sunny day, albeit not exactly a heatwave! It's nice to see such bright sunshine and I'm hoping it continues so that the tomatoes keep on ripening! After all, there's a limit to how much green tomato chutney one can actually get through!
I didn't get the paperwork sorted out yesterday. It's strange how many excuses one can find to avoid certain tasks, isn't it? However, I did get a pile of ironing done and put away so that was good.
The personal training thingy was fun. When Lindsey opened the door to my knock, I thought she looked familiar and she was. It turns out I taught her son through year one around fifteen years ago - she's changed her name since then so it wasn't familiar. One of the many things about having taught so long in the same area.
So that started things off well.
Quite a lot of the first session was spent talking. She asked about general health, diet, aims and expectations, etc, before taking me into her little gym. After a warm up, she focused on toning and resistance stuff, making notes as we went along. She will use them to write a full programme for me.
I think it's going to be helpful.
I didn't spend a lot of time in the kitchen but I did skin some tomatoes to freeze whole. I freeze them in twenties (they are little tomatoes) which is more or less a portion when they're cooked. I'll probably do some more again today as they're a very useful thing to have and shop tomatoes do get so tasteless in the winter months.
Tuition also went well. My eleven plusser is now in the final few weeks before the test itself; there's just two more sessions before we stop.
At SW group, I got on the scales with huge trepidation and was very pleasantly surprised to discover that the expected gain was just half a pound. That made my day, it really did, I couldn't stop smiling.
So, all in all, it was a really lovely day!
Today there's just one thing in the diary - aqua class at one o'clock. Oh, and the lovely cleaners, so before I go to Aqua, I need to make sure the place is tidy. I'm sure to be very sleepy later on so will probably have an afternoon post-swim snooze, thankful that nowadays I can!
Well, I'm starting to feel a bit drowsy so maybe it's time to go back up and give sleep another whirl. I hope you're all sleeping sweetly as I type this and have a great Friday.
