Crikey can't beleive I am into week 3 already it's going way too fast! Weekend has been a bit shaky with socialising so food not 100% good and also had a few too many drinks I guess
Our best friends here in NZ have decided to go back to the UK and they are leaving this week, they have been like our family for the last 4.5 yrs and our youngest children are very close, so it's very hard to say goodbye. My youngest son is very very sad and keeps asking me why they have to go, it's really hard to deal with as I feel just as upset and sad as he does!
anyhow I am still very low about it all, but have managed not to completely lose the plot with food and have still got to gym and done my TT workouts. Saturday I also added in the total body ten circuit which is really good, super quick but super hard, really good to use when you are short of time.
Saturday - totaly body 10 circuit
Sunday - 1 hour walk very brisk pace, nice to be out in the sunshine
Monday - day off mentally and physically tired from the weekend emotions and 10 circuit
Tuesday - got to gym at 5am this morning, it's freezing here in NZ today, freezing fog everywhere , damp and dreary, not nice at all.
but hit the gym and did Workout A from booty for wife
