Hump day…

The weeks are going quick. 

 

Funny isn’t it. Started out today with great intentions. Jee, didn’t quite end up as good a day as I’d hoped. 

 

Got a puncture at work. Of course my fault. It’s the way I drive… lol, not the face I visit some really untidy places where you can pick up nails like I don’t know what…. but oh well. It was sorted and I was back in the road in an hour. Lets hope it doesn’t happen again. Or I’d be in the running for a ticking off. 

 

Busy isn’t in it at the moment, two big projects rounding to a head this weekend and I’m heading out to meet the lancashire wrimos for the first time. Preston here I come. 🙂 

Then I have been asked to take part in another project. I’m looking forward to sinking my teeth into this one. (pun intended) it’s a vampire story. So can’t wait for Feb…. 

 

Results at the gym were great too. I’m not getting hung up on the weight side of it, I’ve not lost as much as my ED would like. But I am still telling him to sod off. But my stats are on the UP!!! water is better, bone density is better. Muscle is better. Visceral fat is down 1 point. Which is massive, I do want to get it much lower though. 🙂 So that I am in the healthy range. 

Positive energy.

Wowser…

Hey everyone,

Last week is almost over. I’ve done so much and worked really hard with everything. But sadly the holiday must end and back to work it is.

We’ve been busy this morning, making sure all the house is clean, and that the birds and ponds are off to a good start. Everyone is A okay. 🙂 so looking forward to getting back into a solid work and play routine.

For everyone who loves pictures, here’s my fav of Bobby. 🙂

The last four months with breaking my elbow have been so tough. Emotionally and physically, but I am back in there, almost 90% better. I think it might still take a while for my arm to be totally up to what it used to, as my dominate hand, it really just isn’t dominant anymore.

I had my first real training session at Burscough Wellness centre yesterday, met a great trainer called Dave, who ran through all the machines for me, first time ever on a treadmill… EEEK! but the other resistant and weights were good. I can really tell where my arm is lacking, so some exercises I will have to do more than others. I only managed 20 mins of cardio. But for a first attempt I don’t think that was too bad. I will continue with my walking that is 30 mins, but obviously not all on the same days, that would be too much.

Actually had a really good chat about everything with the owner of the club. We had way more in common than I knew, the lady we met on Wed, is her sister, and they used to own the static butty van on the corner by Hopwells, lol. So we kinda knew each other anyway, it was good to chat. 🙂

I do have a very busy week ahead, so everyone who normally gets lots of attention off me, might not this week. I’ve a couple of very important projects, bar my own which require my undivided attention to help get them done and dusted and off the ground. It may be a tough one, it may hurt, (painkillers in my bag already) but I will get through it.

You’ve all been amazing while Iv’e been off, and for those of you who have really been there for me thank you. Everyone else, well they know where they can go take a running jump from. The saying is you when the crapper hits the fan, you know who your friends are, really true. So, this year means not only a new change on many fronts, health wise, contact wise, and person wise. It means a big change on my front too, no longer will I let others walk all over me, I am here to fight…

Now, got two jobs left to do, take a load of pictures. And then onto some editing. I’ve homework to get done for EJ, before I head into the busiest week ever.

Catch you laters. 🙂

Into week 2 :)

Okay, so I am slacking a little this week. I had a day off. I mean come on, it was past busy day yesterday. 10pm when we sat down last night. And I had a whisky, thought I’d be okay as we also ate late, but nope. Bit of a headache this morning. 

So yeah a day off. Not that I seemed to do much. By the time we were up it was already late. Hubby got some outside things done, and I edited for a while before I had my Skype session with EJ, wanted two this week as Chap 10 is a pretty tough one. A huge space battle. 🙂 so fun, but tough. 

Tomorrow I am heading out to the https://www.facebook.com/wellnesscentre.westlancs?ref=ts&fref=ts 

I joined a gym last time only to have to stop because of a sprained ankle. So, I’m trying something different this time around. Mum and I are booked in for a trial and talk through at 10am so I will defo have lots to report from there. 

 

I am hoping it’s a more reactive training that just going to the gym, they use toning machine and do have other treadmills and stuff at the back. So, I think I should be able to get in a good hour, hopefully not each day though, perhaps 3x a week. I guess it will have to depend. I want to make sure I don’t neglect the birds, so it will have to be worked around them, hubby and my editing. Wow, sounds like I will be pretty busy, but I have to make the change, and going back to work should help lots too. 

Mum has plans for Friday so I’m really enjoying my last week off. 🙂
