It always takes me a while to unwind and get into holiday mode. This time it’s taken longer as we’re away for a few days, meaning I need to do my school work this week. Grrrrr. However, today, hubby’s alarm went off and for the first time I didn’t hear it! Hooray!
This week has been a lovely mix of catching up with friends, very short, gentle walks and the darned school work. I haven’t done anything near what I should have completed, so I guess the laptop may well be coming with me. However, hubby is taking his open uni stuff and the pub has free wifi…..wine and planning once or twice while he is boffining may be the way to go.
I’ve been really good with my exercises this week, my right leg is super strong now, but my left leg still feels that my knee has two hinges – the normal one, forward and back, but it still feels it has a new hinge – like my left heel could come up to my hip. This is VERY disconcerting and happens a lot of the time. It’s not so bad when I wear trainers, but when I wear shoes without support….ooooh it feels very dodgy.
This week I’ve learnt how to do the bicycle crunch exercise I’m feeling really chuffed as I can do it properly, with my legs low too. I MADE hubby have a go (there was a lot of protestation) and even though he is fitter than me, he couldn’t even raise his legs off the floor let alone do the arm movements…..result! I am stronger than him in one way! My muscle strength is making me feel that I am in some way managing to keep strong if not cardio strong.
I think youtube will be getting some more hits with me searching for more exercises to tone my tum! :)
