Good Intentions

Regular visitors will know that I prefer my morning weekday workouts rather than evening ones, and on weekdays, it works out great for me as P drives past the station on his way to work, which means I can grab an early train and get into the gym (either the one downstairs at the office for cardio, or the one around the corner from work for weights) for about an hour before work.

On weekends however, as he works in construction and is very physically active in the week, the last thing he really wants to do at the weekend is more physical stuff. As our primary hobbies tend to involve computers, that usually turns out fine, except for me feeling a little guilty in having 2 UBER rest days.

So last Friday I ordered myself a few home workout DVDs, with the intention of getting my (somewhat fitter) ass into gear during the weekends. After recommendations from a few buddies, I bought Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred, Hulaerobics (I will get around to learning how to use my hoop!) and the Elements of Yoga set.

Despite my good intentions, I failed to do any of them this week! P and I have recently started a new (and also incredibly geeky hobby) which ended up taking up most of our weekend... Oh well! Might have a play with them in the evenings and put my new ToeSox to use! :)

On the flip side, P used to be a very keen mountain biker and now the weather (and ground) is a lot drier, we're planning on getting me up to speed on the bikes very soon!

Today's Workout:
Walking (brisk, 3.8 mph) = 10 minutes (5, 5)
Running (slow, 5.7 mph) = 20 minutes (20 non-stop)
Stationary Bike (moderate, 100+ rpm) = 18 minutes


  1. I've been wanting to try the Jillian Michael's DVD's. Although I'd probably end up doing them in the evenings too because I like to have my weekends free. Besides I'm usually cleaning and that totally counts as a workout, right?!

    1. Oh absolutely!! (I just need to do more of it! - lol!)
