tuesday and what not...

Woot. 4 days to my Ireland trip. I discovered the pricey hotel has a nice gym and a lovely pool that we can use for free so I am packing my workout stuff and swimming costume just in case we can squeeze in some time when we're not cooing over the baby! It would be nice to swim actually, haven't been in months. Its my Mam's birthday this week too. We're going out to celebrate on Saturday night before we leave for Ireland on sunday. So I am gonna weigh in Sat morning... pre-bad food, pre-holidayness. and then get back to regular weighing in upon return.

Also finally got my kettle bell out. Thank you Monica! Man, that is a work out and a half. Feeling pretty tired today but off to the gym later. Pushing through people. No whining here. I realised to keep my c25k on track I didn't have a day break between sessions so that might of made week3day1 a little harder. It was pretty intense. But it didn't kill me, definitely not looking forward to tomorrow...

On a positive note I have been taking part in Ang's summer challenge.
And I made it into the top ten challengers. Pretty happy, oh yeah! Take a look at some of the other numbers, madness! Thanks, Ang!

Monday's Check list:

minimum of 2 litres of water a day. DONE
10, 000 steps.11121 STEPS
no longer than 4 hours to blog.DONE
at least 5 portions of fruit/veg. 9.2 portions :D
45 minutes of exercise every day. 1.5 hours
at least one form out door exercise. did my c25k in the garden
complete my 30 day sports active on time this time. didnt have time
plan meals. (especially for weekends away) DONE. made chilli.

Pretty good first day I think! Every target hit except the sports active. Kinda half not my fault. I never get any tv time!

good idea re: the weigh in, then it also gves you an extra 2 days of assessing damage control once you are back!

would be great if you could fit in a swim- i didnt go ONCE on holiday. sucked.

Does your swimming costume have wings? I wish we had swimming costumes here. That would be fabulous. Think how fun the beach would be. LOL

You're intentions are lovely and your determination inspirational, Simone Maie. I am happy you are finding your zone. Have a really fantastic holiday!

That's awesome that the hotel has a free pool! We've noticed that the nicer the hotel the fewer the free amenities (including the gym/pool) Enjoy!
