It was so busy there! Not 6.30pm busy but busy all the same. It's been a few years since I've been to the gym that early and I forgot how many crazy people there are in the world! I do mean crazy in a good way.
I did 15 minutes on the bike and 15 minutes on the treadmill. As I was finishing up on the treadmill, my 5.45am alarm went off and I felt quite proud of myself for being there instead of in bed hitting the snooze button. When I got home at around 6.10am, I made lunches for all the kids, cut up some yummy fruit for everyone (including myself) and made a delicious chicken salad.
I went to work feeling vibrant and invigorated. Although I got my morning coffee, I didn't feel as though I needed it like I normally do.
I also went to the gym tonight :) I've been to Aqua Aerobics for the past 2 weeks in a row and the instructor of that said that she thought I would enjoy the class she holds on a Wednesday night - Fat Burner. She told me that she would make sure I could do things by altering some of the activities to accommodate my knees and my petiteness (yes, I am being sarcastic there). I wasn't really sure what the class was about but I am SO glad I went. It was a circuit type class. There were 10 stations ranging from push ups to battle ropes. The only things I wasn't able to do were skipping, burpees and sit ups but instead I did marching for the skpping station, push ups on the wall for the burpess station and a plank thing at the sit up station. After we had a break, she lead us to the treadmills and we walked briskly at a steep incline at a fast speed, 20 seconds on and 20 seconds off. OMG! I looked like I was sunburnt afterward! It was a fantastic workout. I'll be back next week for sure!
I felt a bit emotional during one of the stations. We needed to lift 2 15kg weights and walk around with them. 2 x 15kg = 30kg. Twice this amount is almost what I've lost. It's HEAVY. And it actually made me feel sad, proud, happy, teary all at once. I can't believe I carried that around with me for the amount of time that I did. I'm so glad it's gone.

I'm also looking for another challenge. If you've been following my blog for a while, you may remember when I climbed the 46 floors of my building to raise money for the cancer council. Well, I am trying to think of another quest to conquer! I'm open to ideas. I really want to do the colour run this year but I want something more unique. Hit me up with ideas as I want to start training for something.
It's weigh day tomorrow. To be honest, I don't think I've lost anything. Although I have been pretty good with my food and not bad with my exercise, I can do better. I'm am pleased that I am up and about and feeling motivated. If I've lost anything, it will be only a few grams. I shall update tomorrow :)
