Hope you are well and have had an amazing weekend so far. Here in Spain the weather has been absolutely amazing. We have just been lounging about on the beach, fallen asleep there once or twice throughout the day on our sunbeds and had delicious food. It’s been so nice to lazy about but on Friday I was desperate to workout. I’m so used to getting my daily exercise boost that it feels weird not doing anything. So I went to the gym with Jamie’s mum here in Javea. I really like trying out new gyms and Sparta, as it’s called, was such a great little place where everyone knew everyone. I love places like that.
I’m glad we went quite early in the morning because places here don’t stay cool for very long when the sun comes out. Sparta’s main weights area is also outside and sheltered by a marquee, so it’s safe to say it was quite a sweaty gym session. I love gyms that don’t have the latest blingy equipment, they have the basic things and that’s all you really need, that’s what Sparta is like. Jamie’s mum and I had a great time and I left with sweat pouring down, it felt like I’d had a shower pretty much.
When I was over working in the Edinburgh store last week I also got some new gear for Spain (I couldn’t resist). Plus I don’t really have workout clothes for the heat anymore. I was so excited to wear my new stuff for the first time at Sparta. I absolutely love the top (although I would’ve been better with a top that didn’t have a built-in bra, I had to fold it up towards the end because I was too warm! I didn’t think that one through. The hotty hot shorts were amazing, light and nice and stretchy for squats. I’ve wanting to buy the dottee tribe print (the print on the shorts) for ages in some form, it ended up being shorts. I’ve got some more new gear that I’ll show at a later point. Anyway, enough of my new workout clothes.
Today is actually my birthday!! I’m now 24! I’m up nice and early because we’re starting my day off with yoga on the beach. I’m so excited to go to Fran’s class again, I can’t think of a better way to start my day. Later on Jamie has got the day planned out, so I don’t really know what we’re doing just that I have to bring beach stuff. I’m excited to see what he’s planned. As long as I’m by the sea and with him I’m happy!
