"Total Abdominal"

Hey! I did it again! I went to the gym! That's twice this week! Aren't I a GOOD GIRL! Hee hee hee!

Regardless of the pain I was in for all of Tuesday, and a big chunk of Wednesday I did actually drag myself into the gym proper today and not just the pool. In all fairness, I did slacken off the work load by not using as heavy a selection of weights as I did on Monday. I have to remember that I haven't been for two months, and not only have I not been, I've not being working out at home either and I have gone a little "soft" over that time and need to ease myself back into slowly. This is my fave machine at the moment. I just CANNOT do sit ups, not without buggering up my neck, so I use this: Total Abdominal. It's great for me because it tones up all the bits of me that I am unhappy with, i.e. my belly and my thighs. You sit in it with the shoulder thing over your arms, and your feet under the rollers at the bottom, and pull your upper half down, and lower half up, with what ever amount of weight you require. I do about 100 of these at a time with between 20 and 30k of weight, depending on how I'm feeling (how much pain I'm in!).

But I went and I was there for about an hour, and then I slipped into the pool for an hours swim. I managed 60 lengths in an hour which is pretty good. Not as good as the 64+ I used to do before I got myself a 9 to 5 desk job and stopped going (64 lengths is a mile) but not a bad start. I stuck to breast stroke, keeping it nice and gentle until I get some level of fitness back before I start to try anything a little more challenging.

My hour long sauna was LOVELY though! I took my copy of cosmo with me, lounged with my free coffee, steamed myself, saunaed myself, relaxed and rubbed all my nice creams and lotions into my skin to make myself soft, smooth and nice smelling. I came out feeling blissful! I makes all the hard work in the gym and pool worthwile!

Sadly I had to spoil it all by going to the supermarket afterwards. I wanted to get the shopping out of the way first, but the frozen stuff would get ruined if I did. Still, it wasn't as horrible as it could have been. Not like going on a Saturday which is just simply MENATL and I hate that.
Here's hoping that all this work shows up in tomorrows WW WI, and that I can actually MOVE so I can go!

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…
