I haven’t missed my 4am Monday alarm call for the last couple of weeks, but this morning it was back with a vengeance. Â I fought the duvet and won and was in the taxi to Heathrow by 5am. Â Thankfully things still seem to be quiet in the office, I hadn’t had any emails since Friday and so was able to hit the gym for half an hour at lunch. Â I tend to use my lunch break for low heart rate cardio on the stepper/elliptical thingummies they have there. Â I already stress my heart enough with my running without going for high-level cardio in the gym as well so today I did 15 minutes on the stepper and 15 (level 10 strength setting) on the “swing-stepper”. Â A quick shower and back to the office to eat my salad. Â I’ve started logging my food using MyFitnessPal again, I could do with losing a bit of weight to help me get a bit speedier and whilst I am not really calorie counting the process of logging it stops me eating bread and helps me check I keep my carbs low and fat/protein high. Â By logging it I can spot why I haven’t lost weight when I am expecting to. Â My diet is made trickier by the fact I live in a hotel 3 nights a week so either have to eat takeaway or cold food from the supermarket. Â Tonight’s evening meal was mini salamis, olives and walnut cheese.
In addition to the gym I completed over 15,000 steps and my 30 day challenges. Â Today it was 60 squats, 18 press-ups, 40 second wall sit and a 30 second plank. Â Now I am going to switch to my other focus and get some of my OU study done and try and decide if I am going to run before or after work tomorrow.
