What have I been doing since the 9 May? Not writing posts for one thing! I have been so busy that I haven’t had time to write even a short post. The shorter days as winter draws near have meant that it is harder to get things done, especially with the renovation in full swing. It feels a bit like groundhog day – the only thing that lets me know it’s not is that it is getting progressively colder and darker in the morning and afternoon.
At the moment my typical weekday consists of:
0440 – wake up
0500 – gym
0615 – arrive home
Get ready for the day and sort out lunches etc
0830 – school drop off
0845 – 1730 – work
1740 – arrive home and assist with getting kids dinner, bathing etc
1930 – kids in bed / cook dinner
2030- eat dinner and put water on to boil to wash the dishes outside
2030 – wash dishes and pack them away.
2100 – get gym clothes ready for next day as well as work clothes
2130 – go to bed…
0440 – repeat
I get to sleep in slightly before going to the gym on Saturday and Sunday but the routine is much the same without having to go to work.
On the plus side, I have still been going to the gym. I have been doing weights four days a week with the occasional extra session on a Saturday depending on how I am going for time. I have been doing cardio 5 or 6 days a week with Wednesday as a rest day still. The image below is the results for cardio since the 9 May until today.
I am definitely feeling fitter than at the beginning of the year although I have a few annoying little injuries which don’t seem to want to go away, such as a sore hip flexor which is good for a week or two and then sore for a week but other than that it’s all good.
The renovation is supposed to be finished in a few weeks and things will be back to normal which will be nice.
The goals I set are in need of review which is something that I will do in the next few days. I’m also going to do my best to get back to posting each day as it was something that I was looking forward to doing for the year.
