No appointment on Tuesday..

Well I had to cancel my appointment anyway, and it was outside my control. My husband and I have a personal appointment we have to attend which is kind of important and mandatory. Well, I don't have to go, but I want to be there to support my husband so I kind of have to go.. so I just rang and cancelled.

Yesterday I got up at 5:30am and went to the gym for a cardio session. I didn't have alot of time there as I had a TC with the UK at 8am, so I was only there for 45 mins. I did 20 mins on the crosstrainer and 20 mins on the treadmill. I've always been conscious of my back and so when it comes to jogging I find that when I get the slighted hint of lower back pain I stop jogging and start walking. Yesterday I jogged for 1 min and walked for 1 min... then I decided to push myself and before I knew it I'd jogged for 5 mins straight! I then walked for another 2 minutes and jogged for another 5 mins straight again! HR up to 170 bpm, felt great!

Of to QLD this weekend for a bit of R&R and to see a bandit girlfriend of mine who I haven't seen since my wedding back in June. Looking forward to that!

Happy Australia day long weekend peoples!!!

Have a great long weekend yourself!!
Have you ever tried those machines that vibrate while you do different exercises and "poses" on them? They look good and I understand the theory behind them...but I would like to talk to someone that has actually used one. Especially with our bad backs!

We all have to prioritize in life. Have fun with your bandit friend!
