Wk3 – Circuits wi Gill

Wednesday morning and I had a great long sleep the night before.  I was adamant I’d get an early night… so I went home, made some leek (and  – ahem – potato) soup then was in bed by 7pm!  (I say – ahem – as I’m not meant to be eating potatoes, but I bought a soup mix at the weekend, and realised after I bought it that it contained potatoes… oops).

It was tasty anyway.  In bed for 7pm, I read a bit, and was probably asleep by about half 8.  Up at 6am I probably got about 9-10 hours of sleep. Excellent.  Just what I needed.

I felt nice and refreshed this morning and went to meet Gill at Bellahouston for circuits.  We set up in the dance studio and went on to do the following:

Can I just say – that this workout is bl**dy hard work!!  I had to rest quite a few times before getting going again!  Perhaps I’ll get better at it as time goes on? 

I’d love it if other people could do this workout – as it really puts you through your paces!

Circuits: Warm up then 25 x 1 mins, 42 minutes, 350 calories.

    Mmmh! It may seem boring to you, but used as I am to quick pasta meals and frozen foods, but for me is mouth-watering to hear about your soups and salads and food in general! How did you make that soup of leeks and potatoes? I’m a bit hopeless when it comes to cooking, and I was thinking to get a mixer to do soups. Is that how you make it? Cheers!
    PS: Congrats about your session. It takes determination and a strong belief in oneself to be able to endure this type of workouts! Keep it up :)!

      Thanks – I have a nice we kitchen gadget… the Cuisineart soup maker… put the veg and stock in for 20 mins… whoalla! 🙂 I’ll maybe do some posts on how to use it and do some recipes soon. 🙂 It’s a great product (although you could just use a pan!) The mix for leek and potato was just bougth from Asda, then a litre of stock added… easy peasy.

    Looks impressive! But a £100+ goes beyond my possibilities right now, especially after buying a new phone! I’ll stick to the mixer and…well, will add the stock and leave it simmer for 20min. I’ll tell you the results, my body is craving for good, healthy food to replenish the vitamins and minerals that uses up during training :)!

      You don’t need a soupmaker really. In a pan, saute a chopped up onion. Add a couple of chopped up leeks, and a couple of chopped up potatoes. Make some vegetable stock – 1 litre. Add to the pan. Bring to the boil, simmer for 20-30 mins. Season. Blend if you can. Add a splash of cream at the end. 🙂 Easy peasy. I get pre made soup mixes sometimes to make it really quick!
