Good morning all. Friday the 13th and, I gather, a full moon too, a micro moon no less.
So now we know!
Yesterday was a lovely day.
The PT session was great (never thought I would say that) and, while I know I've worked out, I have no painful muscles this morning. Lindsey is very careful and keeps checking that there's no actual pain during the exercises. The format is ten minutes of warm up on the exercise bike (phew), then various stretching and pulling things using a resistance contraption that fits over the door like a baby bouncer. Then some more cycling to keep the muscles warm and the heart rate up, then some floor work to develop core strength. Then cool down stretches.
The hour really did go quickly!
I'm starting to ponder on ways and means of continuing with this. Every week would be rather expensive but maybe once a fortnight would be workable. I'm pretty sure Lindsey would be OK with that. I must give it some thought.
Tuition was also good in its own way. I'm getting to know my new student and it was the penultimate session for my eleven plusser. Next week I will go through things that they've asked me to review, algebra being at the top of the list.
At Slimming World it was half a pound off. Better off than on, I suppose. These last ten pounds or so are being extremely obstinate! All the work I have done this week should have resulted in a bigger loss than that although maybe the muscle development has sort of balanced the fat loss. Well, onward and downward. I refuse to give in at this point because I would always know that I didn't quite get there. I do feel very strongly about this. Most of my life I've been overweight or obese and never again! I really NEED to hit that target - but not in a silly way, in a sensible and healthy way. No starvation tactics for me!
On to today! It was light when I woke up, which was nice. I have the cleaners in later so the first task is to get tidied up so they can do their job properly. Beth comes round for a sort of planning session over lunch and then I am off to Dad's.
Plenty to do but no stress - nice.
Have a great day, everyone. xx
