Woke up to a bitterly cold day with storm Arwen hitting our shores, managed to make it to intervals, and thankfully it was indoors! But typically the movement I did last night in my home workout was programmed in for the intervals sessions so within 24 hours I’ve done 350 sit-ups!! Abs are starting to ache somewhat…
Did my usual food shop, I feel so much better when my fridge is full and meals are all planned for next week. Food shopping is one of my favourite times of the week as I love looking around the supermarkets & seeing all the different products on offer.
I do go into my own world sometimes when I’m doing the food shop, and today was no different until I suddenly realised that I need to get home as my friend was coming over as we were meeting up to go to a food and gift fayre.
So I literally had 30 minutes to shower, dress, and put some make-up on and I managed it with about 3 minutes to spare!
The food and gift fayre was a little disappointing so it didn’t take us long to walk around it, then we headed into the city where I live for a wander, it was bracing, to say the least, but this kind of weather really makes me feel alive.
Came home to warm up and housework beckoned, didn’t do as much as I had planned so will continue tomorrow.
I bite the bullet and lit the fire too, I’ve not had it swept yet this year as my normal chimney sweep is really busy & I’ve not got a slot until Jan 2022, was a bit nervous as worried I might cause a chimney fire, so kept it relatively small, seemed ok and the house is still standing, I did pop outside briefly when it was lit to double-check there were no flames coming out the chimney which there wasn’t and now I’ve come to bed and felt the wall where the chimney goes and it’s not that warm so hopefully it will be fine to use for the next few weeks!!
I had booked in for a swim tomorrow, however, the venue has said that if you can’t make it you can cancel it without losing the session, usually, if you cancel within 12 hours of the session time you lose the credit! Half of me really wants to swim, but the other half is thinking it’s far too cold and you’ve not had enough acclimatisation in just skins to brave it. So I’ve canceled it, I might live to regret it as it will be 3 weeks before I get back in the water which might be even colder than it is now! Only time will tell I guess.
