September goals

Friday, September 03, 2010

Well now my shoulder is fully back in action one goal is to get back to doing incline presses on the multi gym. I had a go this morning, brave me, and managed 2 reps of 8 at 17 pounds. Good effort- but want to push to getting 2x 15 @ 17 by the end of the month.

Other than that;
take on water throughout the day
eat good food- try something new each week
core workout x 3 a week
Multi gym x2 a week
dumb bells and ball workout x 2 a week

Set a date for a meal out with Jackie...really must catch up

DH and I don't often eat out...........

Thursday, September 02, 2010

But we fancied a treat tonight. I cook from scratch most nights or pick something from the freezer previously batch cooked.

But it was his idea to go to the Plough, a local pub/restaurant and I wasn't about to say no.

The chef there is a Michelin star so the grub is always amazing and cooked to perfection.

I had;

Leek and Potato soup- they always say soup will help to fill you up and this one did. OMG it was orgasmic emoticon I have never tasted anything soup to match it!

Then duck breast in thyme sauce with salad, a selection of veg and new potatoes.
Beautiful, the duck just melted in my mouth and the veg were al dente so very nutritious.

And for dessert
Just room for some strawberry ice cream- which was rich with fresh strawberries in it and I couldn't finish it. emoticon

All washed down with some ice water and a Blueberry J2O.

It was the perfect end to a perfect day and I shall sleep the sleep of babes tonight.
And that's where I'm heading now

Lovely Day......................

Thursday, September 02, 2010

Lovely day- www.youtube.com/watch?v=sYi7uEvEEmk
the infamous song by Bill Withers was on the radio as I was getting ready just now..........has inspired to think of the "lovely day" I've had emoticon emoticon


Lovely workout- 10k in 30 mins on the bike this morning and 250 (various style) crunches. A core workout which took 40 mins and then a 2 min plank! emoticon

Lovely company- DH was more cheerful and his old self today.We spent the day sunbathing in the garden with the radio tuned to LBC (London's Biggest Convsersation) magazine/chat/discussion station. emoticon

Lovely laughter- as the mystery hour came on for people to pose all manor of curious odd questions to be answered by the rest of the listening public.
There was one reposnse to a question which had us both in stitches- I'd mention it here but it got risque for radio and you could tell the presenter was getting nervous so I'll play safe and not go into details but I was ROFLMAOWTIME emoticon

Lovely breeze-a warm breeze blowing through the trees and I could hear the rustle of the leaves as I found patterns in the wispy clouds above.

Lovely sun- just warm enough to enjoy without getting sweaty and restless. emoticon

Lovely lunch- out in the garden watching the robins and other birds come and visit emoticon

Lovely idea- to eat out tonight at The Plough where the food is fanitastic. there is a Michelin star chef there whose puddings are to die for, so I'm giving myself some latitude tonight . emoticon emoticonHeck I've done some fast peddling this morning.

It was a lovely day.......................................
