Bye-bye bloat!

Yesterday's efforts were rewarded with an overnight scale drop of 500g. Told you I was bloated....

This morning I was up early and off to the gym to train legs. As usual at that time of day, it was just me and three guys. No crowds today! I didn't have a lot of time after my weights session, but squeeezed in a 17-18 minute cardio session that did the job:

Incline treadmill, nice brisk pace for 6 minutes
Walking lunges the length of the cardio area and back (about 30 or so)
Incline treadmill again for 4 minutes
Fast squats x 15
Squat & hold x 3 (only managed about 10-15 seconds for the holds....yikes!)
Treadmill (no incline) 6 minutes

The great thing about this type of workout is that you can tailor it to fit any amount of time you have available, and also to suit any fitness level. Oh, and the bonus part is that you're never doing the same thing long enough to get bored. :o)

I've also been for a good walk with a client for about 45 minutes, so that's training all done for today. Now I have to clean up the boxes of "stuff" and deal with my piles of filing, so I have room in here for the shiny new equipment when it arrives. And I need to talk to a man about a mirror....
