another weekend... in the gym #19

FOOD


It's my birthweek and I've eaten ALL of the food. But it's ok because... birthday. ;)
I did make these Thai flavoured chicken skewers which turned out really well and were easy to make. I literally threw it together in the morning and left it to marinade in the fridge while I was at work. For my birthday I received some healthy eating books - Honestly Healthy, The Art of Eating Well & I Quit Sugar For Life - so you can probably expect to hear about some of those recipes soon!

This picture sums up my life!

EXERCISE

Monday - Weights & Yoga.
Tuesday - Kettlebells & Metafit
Wednesday - Rest.
Thursday - Rest.
Friday - Rest.
Saturday - Metafit.
Sunday - Rest

As you can see it's been a week off for me really! Partly due to resting my knees but mostly due to celebrating my birthday and other occasions. I'm not going to term it a "bad" week though as I think it's something my body needed. The rest anyway, maybe not the mountains of cake! I went along to Stacey's metafit class in Aberdeen on Saturday and really enjoyed it. When I saw that the class was held in a mirrored studio I thought I'd hate it but actually I think it helped me focus on proper form! It's nice to get a different perspective and variations on exercises that I'm so used to. I left the class sweating buckets, absolutely knackered but feeling strong and inspired. Hopefully I'll manage again next time I'm staying in town. :)

How do you feel about rest days?!
