That crazy woman at the park

Last night, I was undecided about training today. It didn't suit me to do a weights workout - I hate going to the gym on Mondays. The start of the week is a hard enough grind, without having to get up super-early, so I usually like to make Tuesday, when I don't have to go to the office, my first gym session for the week. So...cardio. Hmm. What to do?

After a bit of a think, I decided to do one of my 30-minute outdoor workouts, the ones I love to inflict on clients. So at 6:30, as it was getting light, I was over at the park for this little beauty:

Jog around the park to warm up

Bodyweight squat x 20
Half squat (lower half) x 10
Half squat (upper half) x 10
Full squat x 20
Squat & hold 15 seconds x 5

Jog around the park

Ab plank 60 seconds (Yeah, I only managed 45 - my abs are KILLING me!)
Mountain climbers x 30
Pushups x 12
Bicycle crunches x 20

Jog around the park

Step-ups x 15
Walking lunges x 20 each direction
Bodyweight squats x 15
X-band walks x 15 each direction

Jog around the park

There was supposed to be a set of ab exercises too, but I'm in agony, thanks to my little BOSU effort on Saturday, so I skipped it....

Walk home to cool down. ALL DONE!

I had a little scale rage episode this morning. I actually kicked them, picked them up and thumped them and called them F*CKERS!! It was a full-blown tantrum. But not because the number didn't please me.... the stupid things wouldn't even GIVE me a number. They're up to their old tricks again, just blinking stupidly at me and saying Lo....Lo....Lo.

Aargh! The batterries are so not low. I seriously have to replace that thing.

Eventually after banging and swearing and taking the batteries out and putting them back in, I got the bastard to work long enough to tell me that there's been no movement since yesterday. Oh well, better than an upward swing.

****************

On the progress front, there's space in my bra that wasn't there a couple of days ago. *sigh* I'll take it.

Like I said yesterday, the scales will catch up eventually.

Great work Kerryn.

Wish I was a fly on the wall to see you chuck a fit. Bet it was a sight to see.

Have a great Monday

I'm feeling much the same about the gym on Mondays. Hope the scales behave for you tomorrow - nothing like starting the day in a bad mood, LOL.

Ha! It was a good one, Shelley... I felt better anyway. :o)

Charlotte, that sucker has tormented me long enough - I'm buying a new set as soon as I get a second to go shopping!

That workout sounds like fun. I like to get outside and it's especially nice at the moment when it's no longer meltingly hot.
