My hump day

Treated myself to a Banana Butter shake from Prep Fitness Kitchen

Made a massive progress at the gym yesterday!

I was so warm and sweaty after yesterday’s gym session!

Dinner with Emma at CCA

Hi lovelies! I’m back in action! Yesterday was a very busy day from the moment I woke up until I went to bed. At work I had lots of meetings and other things to sort out and it felt like the time went by at the blink of an eye. During lunch I went up to Prep Fitness Kitchen with my colleague Nicola as she was getting the rest of the team lunch. I kept her company up there to get some fresh air (I already had food with me) but I couldn’t resist getting their Banana Butter shake (with vegan protein and almond milk). So good!

Straight after work I stopped by lululemon on the way down to G5. I wanted to swap a top I got recently as I found a top I liked even more online, plus it’s always nice to see my girls in there. Then it was time to head down to the gym.

It was lovely and sunny yesterday so I was suspecting a bit of running, which there was. Quite a lot of it. We did a block run or extended block runs three times and in between the rounds in pairs you had to do wall balls and box jumps (first 80 then 60 and 40). I was paired up with Faye’s mum Carole. She’s so amazing!

On the final round I decided to try the 9kg wall ball instead of the 6kg, which I’ve been using for quite a while. I figured, if you don’t try, you don’t progress. It actually went really well! I managed to do all 20 of them. I was so amazed and so happy with myself. It felt considerably heavier but I managed it. I love when you surprise yourself like that with your own strength. It’s what makes training so addictive, to always strive to be better. The girls said I could no longer use the 6kg ball in WODs hehe. I love how we push and encourage each other. I could not push myself as hard as I do at G5 without the support of the amazing people there.

After the workout I got a lift from Carole up to Charing Cross to meet up with Emma and Kamila at CCA. It’s a lovely place but I so rarely go despite how close Jamie and I live to it. Kamila unfortunately had already left but it was amazing to see Emma again. It feels like she’s been away for forever. I loved hearing how she’s been and it was amazing to just sit and chat with her before I eventually had to head home to get ready for the next day.

When I was unemployed a day could sometimes feel like an eternity but now with being so busy it feels like a working week goes by at lightning speed. I can’t believe it’s already Friday tomorrow.

Sleep well my dears!
