Back on the Saddle

We have been told it is officially summer here in Blighty. Well knowing what British weather is like, it has been a mixture of heat and rain however, I have made the most of the good days. Remember, that I said I couldn’t do any of workouts because of my back and knee. Well I am happy to report that after 3 weeks of inactivity, I got back on the saddle on Monday. I can’t believe I missed it so much, it was not difficult once I got started, probably because I take the (10 flights) stairs at work and go for a walk at lunch time. The experts are certainly right about always been active.

For the first time ever, I made a green smoothie last week there is only one word to describe it – vile!! Guess what? I am going to do it again because it really does work on the inside. I am planning a two day detox for the weekend , I don’t think I could do it on a working day as I am not sure if I can cope with the side effects at work. I will keep you posted. I am also going on low carb diet for a week, not just yet as I don’t want my body to get confused or shut down. Basically, I am just experimenting and I need to shred my remaining winter weight. I was surprised that my arms were still toned even though I had been inactive, I thought they were going to back to been slightly wobbly. As I am getting close to my desired weight I am going to reduce the number of days (from 5 to 3) I work out, I don’t want my clothes ‘hanging’ on me, plus it could mean going down a dress size which I don’t want as that will mean I am underweight.

Stay healthy,
