Cause of death : gym

Due to last week being a tad crazy and also month-end at work, today was first time back at gym since last Monday. For some reason today was pretty hard. Though the 3 flights of stairs or whatever just getting TO the gym was enough to kill me. These days I normally need to sit for a few seconds before starting to get dressed but today felt even worse. Also forgot to pack socks or my towel. OVERALL FAIL

Did my normal workout and no treadmill (because stairs killed me) which consists of the following (not in any particular order):
  • 3 reps of 10 push-ups
  • 3 reps of 15 bicep curls with 6kg dumbbells
  • 3 reps of side arm lifts (no idea what you call them) with 3kg dumbbells
  • 3 sets of 15 squats
  • stretching
  • 3 leg machines that form part of toning circuit
  • 3 reps of 15 calf raises
As you can see it's not much, but all I could do today. Going again tomorrow and hoping to add 10 mins of treadmill and at least SOME abs too. Haven't gained any more weight but still a kilo more than when I saw the Dr last time. Seeing him again today in a month's time (well that;s the plan).

Last week was a bit of a blur, but the highlight was our supper-club that got together again, on a beautiful full-moon eve. Managed to get these 2 stunning pics of Northcliff (the hill on the right side of the first pic) and Sandton (the populated area under the moon). We live at the bottom of Northcliff and I work in Sandton, so it's exactly home and work in one pic! ALSO, saw Louzanne again who was in Jozi for work so her and I went out for supper and caught up on Thursday eve. Best therapy EVER. Wish I saw her more often :-( 

This weekend I attended the Gauteng Sports Council meeting as representing Transplant Sports along with 2 other members of the committee at the Johannesburg Stadium in the CBD. It was a bit of a challenge as the power went out just as the meeting started (loadshedding) so things probably didn't go quite as planned. Afterwards we went for a swim at Andrew's place, following a lovely thunderstorm! Had a great afternoon and yummy foodies.

Hopefully this is a good week.... ending in a good Valentines Day.
