Plans for the day

Today is going to be a busy one.  Before work I did a short yoga session, before swapping my usual two cups of coffee for a green tea.  The difference compared to how I usually am at this time of the day is that I feel alive, awake and alert.  Not sure if it’s the yoga, tea instead of coffee, or both that are working their magic, but it feels good.

At lunchtime, I’ve got a core strengthening session with a colleague in the gym in work (we’re lucky that working in a university, we have access to a gym on site).

Work-wise I’ve got a fair bit on today, so overall the day should pass pretty quickly.

Really sore. But in a good way.

After yesterday’s little rant, it’s back to the usual programming.

On Monday I did an early morning gym session with a work colleague, concentrating on upper body – which I’m guilty of neglecting – using kettle bells.  The workout went like this :-

10 kettlebell lifts
1 pushup
10 kettlebell lifts
2 pushups
10 kettlebell lifts
3 pushups

Repeat the lifts and pushups, increasing the number of pushups by one until you do 10 of each.  If that hasn’t completely burned you out, or your a glutton for punishment, keep going, but reduce the number of pushups each time till you get back to one.
It’s a tough one, but I did really feel like I’d done some good.

This morning we concentrated on core strength, which again was tough, but really good.  Tonight after work, I’m going straight to my yoga class (Vinyasa flow).  (Think I’ll deserve that G&T when I finally get to the pub quiz tonight.)

I’m actually feeling really motivated at the moment, as I’m also on the Atkins diet, and I’ve lost 2 1/2″ off my belly, which is great.
