Monday Motivation

Monday Motivation

Was it just me, or was last week over in a flash? It seemed to me that it raced by.

I had my first full week of classes, and it looked something like this:

Monday – Body Conditioning. I worked hard, and had DOMS for days. We had a new track for triceps, and it really told on me afterwards. Loved it!

Tuesday – Pound and Zumba. I think Zumba is going to take some time to get used to, with new routines, and co-ordination needed for arms and legs. After Monday’s class my arms were already sore, and by Wednesday morning I was aching all over!

Wednesday – Jog Scotland. A leisurely run was just what I needed after the exertions of Monday and Tuesday, and it felt good to get outside in the fresh air for half an hour. I was really glad that I went along, as is always the case.

Thursday – PiYo and VeraFlow. I needed this stretch out, and it was fantastic. At PiYo, we put together the flow routines, doing the whole thing on the right side, and then on the left. It was hard work, and I still can’t fo the half moon, but I love this class. There was a new VeraFlow track (Jacqui, I don’t know how you remember all of this!), so it was good to mix it up a little.

Friday – Salsa. This is both lots of fun and needs concentration to get right. I think that the footwork is beginning to get there, but I’m really struggling with arms at the moment! But after only three lessons, it’s early days. I’ve ordered dance shoes, so I can’t wait to give them a go when they arrive.

We then had the Jog Scotland Christmas night out after Salsa, which was such a laugh! It’s a really good crowd of people who are so supportive and fun. We even all recevied a present from Santa’s sack 🙂 I got rainbow laces for my trainers, and bib clips! Yay!

On Saturday evening, @TheWelshWookie and I went to the cinema, for the first time in ages, and we saw ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’. I had low expectations, if I’m honest, and so I was pleasantly surprised by the film, I really did enjoy it. Although a cinema trip is by no means a low cost night out – it was the best part of ÂŁ50 for tickets and snacks for two, ouch! Just was well we don’t go often! I’m now looking forward to reading the screenplay:

Sunday was the Country Living Christmas Fayre in Glasgow with my mum and sisters. I managed to get the last couple of things off of my shopping list, before we headed to The Scullery for a lovely late lunch. We rounded the evening off with a wee glass of vino in a lovely Italian bar off Byres Road, and with ice cream from the University Cafe.

So here we are, with another week stretching ahead, and I’m heading to Body Conditioning still tired from last week. I think I need a holiday! 🙂 I’m glad I have a Monday night class to look forward to, otherwise I’d definintly be tempted to just head home and sit on the sofa for the evening. Having a commitment to a class certainly makes all the difference on dark, cold nights like these.

Here’s something to help you, if you’re feeling the same way:monday-inspirational-quotes

Have a great week!
