On Monday night we went out a quick walk in the evening, and got some nice pics of the local area…
On Tuesday I did strength and spin in the morning, then walked to work and back that day. I met a few colleagues in work, and gave over a glass rainbow to one. So that was nice.
I have about 14 working days left there! Eeeeek. Full time til the end of April then just 4 days in May… and by the middle of May I’ll be finished. I took this reflective picture on the way home on Tuesday afternoon.
Same old same old pictures though. Oops. Maybe we’ll make our way out of Glasgow soon.
We’re both liking the garagym set up…. the ability to do challenging strength, HIIT or bike workouts on Apple Fitness is really good.
It was a quick warm up, then 4 sets of compound exercises:
Side Lunges / Romanian Deadlift / Single arm Kneeling curl to press / Squat / Renegade Row / Press up Simple, but challenging.
I’ve been a bit more careful about what I’ve been eating, aiming to eat more protein (30%) and good fats.
I’ve replaced the small amount of breakfast cereal (red berry flakes from asda) with raspberries and walnuts, for a yoghurt, but, blueberry, raspberry and protein powder breakfast of about 400 calories. And a black coffee and water and the usual vitamins and omega 3 capsules.
This has been the outcome weight wise of a reduction of calorie intake, over two weeks. A drop in body fat, and it looks like things are going in the right direction. Although my weight hasn’t decreased overall, it’s going the right way (less body fat).
The aim is to lose around 0.6lbs a week, with a calorie deficit each week… by exercising / activity burn and being careful not to overeat. So I’ll aim for between 1600-1800 calories a day intake, less on days when I don’t exercise.
I’m awake for about 620am… a couple of coffees and music or an audiobook to wake me up, then I’m exercising by 715-730 ish. I like to nail the exercise before work if I can, but I can use lunchtimes or after work if need be.
Oh and I nearly forgot, it was my 2 mile run the other day. Trying out my leg.
My hamstring wasn’t quite right, maybe a 2-4 out of 10 for pain. It was ok, but then after about 13 mins it didn’t feel quite right. So I’ll take another 2 weeks off it and cross train including physio exercises and see how it goes.
Maybe I should see if I can take pics other than ones at the Clyde?! 😜 Have a good week everyone.
