Today has been a win day as I got a PB (personal best) at the gym this morning. My exercise of choice is Crossfit, which is a global fitness movement where the idea is that you are constantly challenged with every workout. I have a somewhat love/hate relationship with it as it pushes you both physically and mentally in equal measures. Within Crossfit we have workouts called benchmark workouts, as the name might suggest you can use them to benchmark your progress as well as compare yourself with anyone else across the world who has also done the same workout. A selection of these workouts are name after girls or nasty girls as they are often called!
Just shows that despite my workout schedule being quite hit and miss over the last few months, this morning’s PB is proof that progress is being made even if you don’t see it of feel it. I also weighed myself yesterday and had lost a little weight, from the outset I’m doing this transformation to improve my health and life, I know full well that weight loss will be a happy side effect so as much as I will weigh myself every so often I’m not going to get caught up on this unless the numbers increase and then I will seriously need to address it!
Today has been a day at the uni and we welcomed the new first years (freshers) to our course, nice to see students back on campus and I’m looking forward to lecturing in the coming weeks. Today was the only day I’m at the uni as I’ve taking annual leave for the rest of the week, won’t be holiday as A: I’ve got business work today and B: my parents are coming to stay.
