Exercise rocks!

When Bobby met Minty!! I was away so didn't witness brother and sister being reunited but apparently it was quite chaotic.

They did sit still for a few seconds...
Bobby hadn't been clipped for a full year so his fur was quite taffled up hence the brutally short haircut he had been given (on his birthday no less!!). I know Minty and Shelagh are ready for a trim but I'm not going to take it that far - he looks like a whippet! It does make Minty look fat though and she's really not...!!
Shelagh shows Bobby a thing or 2 about football - the aim is not (apparently) to play with the ball but rather to manouevre it into a position whereby you can pierce it with your teeth and thus render it useless forever...

I'm accentuating the positive when I say that I'm doing really well at exercise this week!! I am also eating quite well but not doing very well at tracking or recording it. But, hey, if it works, I can get to the tracking later.

Exercise:

  • Monday - wicked Step class at lunchtime. Hard work but not totally knackering. Very smooth and complicated so I spent the whole time concentrating on the routine and not on how tired I was.

  • Tuesday - very busy at work but still managed to force myself out for a short run in the evening.

  • Wednesday - just a walk round town and a dog walk in the evening.

  • Thursday - a killer Body Combat class at lunchtime. It was fab - I feel so buzzed up about it.

  • Friday - I'm playing squash tomorrow with Charlie. It was great last week so I hope I can keep giving him enough of a game to make sure it becomes a regular fixture.

  • Saturday - I have friends coming over and we're going for a proper walk

  • Sunday - don't know yet - gym or run or walk.
That is not half bad.


So, although I'm not doing brilliantly on the writing food down, I'm also not going mad foodwise and I hope I'll drop a lb or so this week. The scales seem to be heading in that direction.

Stick to it everyone - we can conquer this foe!!

That is amazing! Wow! All I've done is snuffle sadly to the station (where I try to share my germs with rude commuters only).
