I had a sleep-in today, for me, 7:30. I took my time with breakfast and got ready for the gym, leaving just after 9:00 - big mistake! It was really busy and I had to swap round my workout, BUT I pushed myself more - I did 25 minutes of rowing, b... Read more

I taught a lovely class today, mostly boys with one girl, but all kids I'd taught before, and all pretty well behaved. So the day went well. My daughter's day wasn't so good. She had a vaccination for meningitis and was only told yesterday ... Read more

Up early this morning, to get to the gym before going across London to array on tiling my stepdaughter's bathroom. Then, disaster struck. As I was getting dressed for gym, I mislaid my Fitbit so had to go without it. My husband found it bef... Read more

Yesterday was wet and miserable for the most part. We did our weekly food shop and came out in blustery winds. In the afternoon we went to visit a tenant, who is recovering incredibly from a bleed on the brain, at 81. We didn't think he was goin... Read more

My day began with my third visit to the gym this week, all good. Then I came home, put my face on and met my sister for coffee; we keep our meetings occasional even though we only live a mile apart and that works! After that, the best part ... Read more

I managed to get away from school earlier today and still got to the gym just after 4pm, but the receptionist let me in. If it happens too often, I'll have to upgrade my membership from off peak, but hopefully I won't need to, as generally I'll ... Read more

I had planned to start on a set of curtains today, but I had a phone call to go in to teach mainly English. I also taught a cookery lesson and supported a trainee teacher in a science lesson. I had also wanted to go to the gym early, but, as I ... Read more

This morning I got up with good intentions. Once I got up, the intentions started to wane. Once I had prepared my daughter's lunch, drunk my herbal tea, made juice and taken my vitamins, did I really feel like exercising at 7:30 am?? Honestly ? ... Read more

The morning started slowly, very slowly. I couldn't face exercising as I was feeling stressed at the prospect of driving my car with no dashboard instruments showing. Then, as we were leaving, I found that the battery was flat, due to the other ... Read more

Tuesday, January 26, 2016      4 comments

Today started well with a 30 minute salsa DVD workout. I decided to walk more all day, avoiding standing still whenever possible, eg. Walking when I was cleaning polish off my fingernails - it worked, as I did 11500 steps on my Fitbit today. I... Read more

This morning started badly. Usually, when I get up to exercise, I put on the kettle and make myself a fruit tea to sip as I work out. This morning I boiled the water, then poured, then BANG, boiling water everywhere and a mug broken cleanly in t... Read more
