Janathon Week 3

Week 3!  I'm now a whole week behind on Yoga Revolution so I need to get back on it, really struggling to get up in the morning with the darkness.

Sunday  15th

Dog walk in the rain - 30 press ups

Monday 16th

Dog walk
25 press ups
Boxercise 1 hr

Tuesday 17th

Dog walk
35 press ups - 15 on my toes
Kettlercise 1hr

Wednesday 18th

Food shop day
30 press ups

Thursday 19th

I had planned to either go to spin or do a turbo session at home but I was so cold after the afternoon dog walk I couldn't face getting changed a second time.   All I've done is the dog walk & 30 press-ups including 15 on my toes

Friday 20th

Another cycle/turbo fail - did manage a slightly longer dog walk as it's not getting dark so early and I've done 30 press ups - 16 were on my toes

Saturday 21st

Planned to go out on the bike this morning but when OH came back from walking the dog at 10.30 and said he'd just helped out a crashed cyclist that idea was quickly shelved. No way I'm risking sliding on ice.  😣Ended up doing a 40 min high intensity turbo workout indoors, 

Didn't manage the last 1 minute effort - however, lots of sweat and very jelly legs after. 

30 press ups Inc 17 on my toes.

I also walked half a mile to Lidl to find some veggies and then walked back with a very heavy shopping bag and cooked dinner😀

Janathon Week2

Week 2 already

Sunday 8th January

Feeling proper meh today with this stupid coughing thing - only managed 20 press ups but 5 were on my toes 😀 also went to Lidl to share my germs far and wide

Monday 9th January

Took today off sick - watched lots of crap on the telly.  Took Archie for a walk around the block in the rain.
20 press ups - managed 10 on my toes !!!!!!!  made me feel dizzy so I cancelled boxercise, guess it's not a good idea to go to class and spread the virus and make myself feel even more shit.

Tuesday 10th January

Another day off sick - another day of crap telly & not doing much.  Did manage a dog walk in the afternoon and 20 press ups.

Wednesday 11th January

Back to work (was a big mistake but there's only so much crap telly I can sit and watch - and my work was piling up!)  All I managed today was food shop and 20 press ups. 

Thursday 12th January

Too ill for spin - think I went back to work too soon!   Today's physical exertion including 20 press ups, a 40 step dog walk to the lamppost in the torrential rain and hefting boxes of disposable cups up 3 flights of stairs

Friday 13th January

Dog walk around the park and 20 press ups - 10 on my toes

Saturday 14th January

Shaun working today so morning dog walk with a couple of errands thrown in during the walk.  20 press ups with 11 done on my toes.

Happy New Year & Welcome to 2017

Happy New Year one and all - let's hope 2017 brings some health and happiness.

Nothing eventful in the Boniface household over the last few days.  

I weighed in with Slimming World on Thursday - back up 1lb to 70kg, bit frustrating but with all the amazing food and wine we've had over Christmas that's not too bad, presumably it could get worse.   I've tried to get back to logging and eating "on plan" but it hasn't been easy with a cheese and pate mountain to get through,  I'm leaving most of it to Shaun (shush don't tell him).

There was a bike ride on the 30th - it was cold and foggy, pleasant enough.  I had intended to ride the last day of the year but following the previous days bike ride and a tough spin class on Thursday the legs weren't happy so I gave it a miss.

Today, we didn't get up very early and it was raining so we walked Archie to the park where he promptly turned round and headed home with Shaun in tow.  I stayed on the Park to check for firework debris - not as bad as I had envisaged but enough to warrant picking it up before it got spread through the undergrowth.

When I got back I spent half an hour reading - I've started another reading challenge this year and the first thing is to finish the one I've started - the Time Traveller's Wife - before I start on something fresh.  After the book reading session I completed day one of the #yogarevolution with Adrienne

I've dabbled with a bit of "home yoga" and I've watched Adrienne's videos before but this is the first time I've actually done one.   I quite enjoyed it, although I did have rather a lot of interruptions from Mr B asking questions about unrelated stuff and the dog who can't let me lay on the floor without it being a game with him.    Looking forward to day 2.

I've also done 10 press ups - one was an iffy one on my toes - I'm determined to get off my knees, a second walk with the dog via Halfords to pick up a turbo trainer computer.   35 minutes on the turbo whilst Shaun was cooking some dinner, think I'm done for the day. 

I wasn't sure if Janathon was happening this year - but it looks like it is so here's day 1.   As in previous years I'm not going to blog every day from now on, just a weekly update on how it's going, plus a micro blog on the Facebook page.

Today's totals :

1 yoga session
2 dog walks
35 mins on the turbo - about 13kms according to my new computer
9000 steps
10 press ups (including one on my toes)

All the best for 2017 folks - see you at the end of the week for a Janathon update :)
