Hello Fudgey Friends,
How is everyone? How has your week been? Who has snow? I'm pleased to say we've had none & I'm hoping it stays that way - we saw enough last year to do us for a good few years.
Well this week has been a really good week, though I think I may have overdone it just a little as today I had to rest & even grating carrot & chopping an onion hurt my arms.
I decided this week that I really needed to up my game a little & step out of my comfort zone.
Last week I decided to stop being so lazy & actually take the stairs at work - I'm pleased to report I never took the lift once in #10 last week :-)
On Wednesday I finally managed to make it to a BodyStep class - wow hard work & can't really say if I enjoyed it as I had to concentrate so hard but going to go back this week.
Yesterday I created my own Saturday Slaughter session in our wee gym & totally brutalised myself..... Ran 6.7km in total but after each kilometre 1 to 5, I jumped off treadmill & did 20 squats, 10 burpees, 20 lunges, 20 bicep curls, 20 oblique cycles & 10 sit ups.
I also stepped out of my comfort zone in the kitchen - I don't cook fish often as I can't eat it (makes me ill - which is unfortunate as I quite like it), but last night I decided I'd make a fish dish for Mr Fudgey while I had spicy chilli.
The result - Mr Fudgey's dinner of parma wrapped cod loin
There hasn't been much in the way of running this week - next week I really need to kick myself up the butt with regard to that. I did run for 20 minutes on Friday morning as part of my gym session & obviously the session yesterday - but it's not enough in terms of kilomathon & half marathon training - so my aim for next week is to run at least 3 times.
According to my calorie tracker - I've burnt 2700 calories through exercise this week & that doesn't include taking the stairs at work or general travelling from a to b. I know some people like to see what training I've been up to whereas others find it a bit boring so I won't go into the detail but this week.
Monday - 30 minute gym session & 30 minute spin class
Tuesday - 1 hour gym session & 30 minute spin class
Wednesday - 45 minute Bodystep class
Thursday - 1 hour personal trainign session
Friday - 1 hour gym session
Saturday - 90 minute Saturday Slaughter Session
Unsurprisingly today has been a much needed rest day. I've been busy in the kitchen baking for work though Mr Fudgey has had a wee taste of everything & gives it the thumbs up.
I'm now contemplating going for a nice relaxing soak in the bath & using some of the gorgeous lush bath stuff that Mr Fudegy surprised me with on Wednesday. He is the best x x
Have a great week everyone & I shall be back soon to let you know if I can keep up the stair challenge & if I actually run 3 times this week. Mr Fudgey has put new workout music on my ipod so hopefully that'll inspire me.
lots of love
