Happy Tuesday everyone! Its been a particularly happy day for me because I’ve had a day off work, and I’ve got so much done, yay!
Now while most people would probably kick a day off with a lie in, I was up at 5am, courtesy of a 6am gym session with my trainer Steph. I usually walk to the gym, which is about 1.5 miles and takes about 25 minutes, and even in the dark I love the walk because Bournemouth is so pretty when its quiet out, and I can watch the sun rise over the beach from the gym. My workout was a lot of upper body isolation, with supersets of shoulders, biceps/triceps and chest and back, and wrapped up with two of my menaces – burpees, and 25kg overhead press – which while I hate it at the time, it reminds me of how far I’ve come from the days of 10kg.
I was home just before 7.30am, and kicked off the start of my productive morning by getting a batch of brownies in the oven – today is a baking day! I figured its been ages since I’ve done any proper baking, and any baking posts for that matter, so I spent my whole morning flitting back and forth from the kitchen and my laptop, getting each post written as the recipe cooked/set. After the brownies it was meringues, then marshmallows and orange curd, so keep an eye out for this in the coming weeks!
After a quick lunch break – turkey salad wrap – I set about getting all the photos for the posts taken, as well as some photos for other upcoming posts, then I took a little bit of time out from blog work to do a little DIY experiment for something that might be coming soon to my Etsy shop.
Back to writing for a little bit, with my classic background noise of Friends re-runs on Comedy Central, then I headed over to Matthew’s and because the poor boy is stranded in Bournemouth with no car, I was a top girlfriend again and took him to Staples and Currys PC World to pick up a few bits before we got in for the night, and gave up on the idea of cooking dinner, instead opting to order Pizza Hut delivery, oops!
Because he goes back into training tomorrow, he’ll be spending the evening revising, so I’m set up with my iPad and book – I’m starting The Fellowship of the Ring for what feels like the hundredth time, but I actually feel like I’m getting somewhere with it this time for a change! We’ve got an early morning tomorrow so I predict there’ll be a pizza induced coma and early night!
