Well I guess this marks the end of the first week of January. I did find it pretty hard to get back into the groove of the old routine after the Christmas holidays and my 2 weeks in the States, even my workouts were a struggle. But, all in all I think I did pretty well.
Monday: Rest Day
Tuesday: 30 minute HITTS on the treadmill, strength workout 1, 5 minute cool down on the bike
Wednesday: 4 mile run and abs and core work
Thursday: 15 minutes of intervals on the cross trainer, strength workout 2, 5 minute cool down on the bike
Friday: 30 minute hill climb on the cross trainer, 20 minute of intervals on the bike and step machine, abs.
Sunday: Yoga and blogilates podcasts.
The Autumn term at uni starts on Monday, which means that Body Pump is back. I missed it so much! I can’t wait to feel the burn again and shake up my work out routine with some new classes. I was thinking perhaps re-introducing spinning, but may just try something completely different.
I’ve still been getting stuck in with my cleaner eats too. Here’s just a few…
Buckwheaties with a chopped banana, apples, dried cranberries and Sun Butter
Apple, ginger, lemon and spinach green smoothie.
A chocolate protein smoothie: vegan chocolate protein powder, a banana, almond butter, honey, water.
Homemade popcorn with peanut flour, salt and cacao bliss sauce.
Mixed leaves, wholewheat cous cous, olives, red cabbage, carrots and hummus.
After such tough week I thought I would take it a little easier today and even took a trip to the Cathedral for service this morning.
The Cathedral really is beautiful and full of Medieval artifacts and designs. Afterwards I headed around the shops to see what was about. I did buy to some new PJ’s from Primark. I’ve just washed all of my bed linen and love that feeling of clean sheets and fresh PJ’s.
I’ve also been in the kitchen cooking up a batch of my High Protein Three Bean Chilli and some other bits to see me through the week. I’m so excited about tomorrow as hopefully we are going to look around some potential wedding venues…excited! 😀
Did the first week of January go well for you? What have you all been up to this weekend?
I hope you all have a great week!
