Not really trying

You can usually tell before my official weigh day on Sundays what kind of results I’m going to get. If I haven’t posted much during the week, it’s probably because I’ve been feeling guilty. In the last week, I’ve gone over my WW points allowance 4 days out of 7, and two of those were waaaay over! After a 30 minute walk on Sunday, I managed just one 13 minutes cycling session in the morning. Most mornings I can barely get out of bed. Part of the problem is that I’m still going to bed too late. During the week I decided to concentrate on getting to bed before midnight, I managed 5 out of 7. But some of those were mad dashes to get between the sheets before the stroke of twelve. Very Cinderella. It didn’t mean I was turning the light out before 12, and it certainly didn’t mean I was asleep before 12. And since then, it’s been back to my wicked old ways. Anyway, overall, a one-pound rise is not too bad, all things considered.

On the plus side, I crossed off another of my 101 in 1001 goals today, having juiced every day for a month. My 101 fund is now up to £55. How cool is that. I’ve also added a couple of new goals. Check out the 101 page for my favourite juice recipe.

Mission for this week. First, in bed for 11.30 and lights out no later than 12. Second, new exercise programme, from Shape magazine January 2008. It’s quite intense, with around an hour of exercise 6 days a week – strength three times a week and cardio six. Three different strength workouts, all total body, so you don’t get bored. And three different cardio workouts: a 35-minute speed interval workout, a 45-minute incline interval workout, and a 60-minute mix-it-up workout. I’m sitting here dripping with sweat at the moment, trying to write my blog in my 30-second rest periods between resistance sets. It’s taking a while! One more exercise to do – crab dips for triceps, but my arms are already trembling from the push-ups with leg lifts. Oh well, here goes…Done. OK, better go do my cardio now.

Only did 25 minutes. Had to cut it short because of bad shin splints. Still, I did around 30–35 mins strength and 25 mins high-intensity cardio. I feel fantastic. Off to ice my legs and shower. Better dash if I’m going to be in bed by 11.30. ‘night all.
