You aren't late, I'm just a bit of a keeno today :lol:

I'll go for 4, hoping to get some in today, tomorrow, wednesday might be tricky, ditto thursday - stupid meetings! Friday should be alright and then I've just got to find one over the weekend.

Oh and wedding planning sounds way more fun than exercise anyway!

I'm going for a low pledge this week too, going down to Solihull on Friday until Monday and not really sure whether I'll manage anything whilst I'm down there! So I know I'll manage 3 sessions this week and anything else will be bonus work :). I'm having a rest day today although technically I could be doing something! xxx

I would say anything with a push up... really are beyond hard for me and I don't seem to be getting any better!

2 done with 6week 6 pack.


Ooh how is that one? It's next on my list after the shred as I'm real unhappy with my middle section x

I'm not sure what I think about it really! I remember hating it the first time I ever tried it, I preferred it today though, I think it would be better if it was in shorter circuits like 30DS instead of one 15 minute circuit that you repeat - does that make sense?

Oh and the side planks with knee raises might actually be the devil!! :lol:

2/3 wih shred

I did level 3 tonight and i don't like:-

Rock star jumps - just because im knackered at that point
Travelling push ups
Jumping lunges - I find it hard to balance
Scissors - sort of a love/hate relationship
Also those up and down on your arm planks are hard
I also don't like where you lift one hand up then one leg but that's mainly as it hurts my hand

Think that's it for level 3 :lol:

3/3 done with a 30 minute jog (with walking intervals!) I think I managed 9 minutes of running this time. For lent, as well as giving up chocolate I've decided to train for a 5k on the 1st April in Glasgow. I know it probably doesn't sound like much to any seasoned runners out there, but I've never done any jogging/running before so I'm excited about the challenge :D. xxx

2/3 please - loaded about a ton of textile-stuffed binbags into a lorry at work today (random) and then had a mad dancing session in the kitchen this evening whilst baking cookies for my sister's moving house day tomorrow (which will be 3/3). That's as good as it's going to get this week! I hate the crosstrainer...

I've managed one session since being down at my aunts, a 30 min jog and I don't think running is fo me at all.... Maybe I should stick to zumba! We are going to an outdoor activity centre today so god knows what that will entail! Xxxx
