Janathon Day 17 – Weights and Workout Outfit

Today was a more relaxed effort, I went to church in the morning with the small people and then this afternoon the socialite that is my Pink One had a birthday party to attend. It was a really good party, where the kids had about an hour to play on gymnastics equipment – so again doing her own bit for Janathon!

My contribution today was playing with the new weights that I purchased yesterday! I used the 1kg weights and did the following four exercises from the recommendation list:
FullSizeRenderBicep Curl – 20 reps each arm

Front Elevations – 20 reps each arm

Side Elevations – 20 reps each arm

Trapezius Muscles – 20 reps

I repeated this work out three times – at the moment I feel ok – tomorrow I am sure I will moan every time I move my arms! Haha!!!

Just for your viewing pleasure a blooper too!

In the meantime for a bit of fun – a competition to win some vouchers with farfetch.com – coming up with your must have workout outfit… this is what I would have (purely for aesthetic reasons for the majority of it – I wanted some colour) if I had an
unlimited budget…
Workout Outfit1. Buff Headgear Nia – this one is gorgeous, may very well be my next Buff purchase and at £15 it’s pretty reasonable!
2. M&S Tropical Print Cropped Leggings – £22.50
3. M&S Tropical Print Vest – £19.50
4. M&S High Impact Non-Padded T Back Crop Top  – £16
5. Saucony Women’s Peregrine 5 – adore my current Saucony’s – love the colour of these ones, but don’t know if they’d suit my running style! – £59.99 (normally £100 – 40% off)

I’d quite like this very cute bag off of Farfetch too but it’s a smidge out of my budget at £823 – haha!!!

Deja vu with a Pink hue!

Today was similar to yesterday, except the trip to the park was with the Pink One this time as the Blue One was at the child-minders, as today was an OU study day for me…

  • Walk to and from school in the morning for the Pink One
  • Two lots of laundry hung out (which did involve climbing up and down stairs! – yes, another two loads today!)
  • Walked to collect Pink One from school and then on to the park

  • Played bat and ball with the Pink One
  • Stood and walked around the playground as the Pink One played

Fun and giggles with my Pink One

  • Walked home from the park with the Blue One
  • Walk home with the Pink One and the Blue One

Walking home!

  • 17 toe touches, 17 sit and reaches, 17 sit ups/tummy crunches! (Again in the evening, will I never learn?)

Check out my step count for the day – not as great as yesterday, but considering I studied for the morning and part of the afternoon it’s pretty good – and there were times when I didn’t carry my phone on me, so there were more steps!!!

Short Walk!

So today I’ll keep it short and sweet – I’ve got an early start in the morning and did I mention before it’s my first timed 10km race!?! I took it easy and went on a beautiful, crisp and cold afternoon walk with my Mum, which was just lovely as it was only the two of us so we could talk! Really relaxing!!!
