I bashed my elbow on a chest of drawers at the weekend, quite badly. It means I can't support my weight on it very well. It also makes me seem like a clumsy klutz. Believe it or not I haven't had an injury in over 6 years. I need more flat or less furniture.
To cope with the frustration of not being a trustafarian with a paid for house in Notting Hill...I've upped my exercise to get wickedly fit.
It's Week 2 of my 30 day Challenge and here's my schedule for this week:
Monday 6th August: I went to Power Plate class in the morning with Kate, a lunchtime yoga class with Dina and Pilates class with Antonia this evening. It broke up the day nicely and I think I was a bit more productive as a result.
Tuesday 7th August: I am teaching Yoga in the morning and then a one-to-one on the Power Plate at Fitzrovia so had a Power Plate class with Andrew and a Spincycle class at lunchtime with Joe. It is my second Spincycle class and I am feeling it!
Wednesday 8th August: A Power Plate class with Rachel and another one with Kate. I meant to do a lunchtime yoga class as well, it's a great way to break up the day and not get so caught up in the endless to do list but it din't happen.
Saturday 11th August: Spincycle class with Leon, my 3rd class and it is still quite hard, feeling it in my thighs and am a bit out of breath at points in the class and my legs don't seem to spin as fast as everyone else's but I will get there!
Sunday 12th August: I taught a 90 minute yoga class and did it all while teaching so that was me for the week.
I also had tickets every single night for the Meltdown festival which meant that after teaching and training there wasn't a lot of room for anything else. But that's a good thing, one of the reasons I wanted to get myself moving more is that I work like a dog and just don't want to any more. I want to look after myself a bit better and being fit makes you feel good about yourself too.
I might get myself a heart rate monitor, we sell them in the shop, I think it might help to motivate me.
I've also had a fitness test done - we are now offering this as a service, it's a great way to measure where you are now and work to improve - the results were slightly shocking. But more of that later!
