Why are weekends always too short? How can it be Monday already?
Had a fun Friday night round at the Germans’ place. They have a new Karaoke playstation game that is lots of fun after a few of shots of the strange german schnapps that went with the yummy sausages. So woke up Saturday morning with a pounding headache and memories of belting out really bad 80s songs and with great gusto ..*cringe*
Saturday was then a lazy day mucking round on the laptop (I’m addicting to finding free podcasts now we have an ipod. Have discovered Russell Brand and he is guaranteed to make me laugh my arse off for an hour every week, he rocks). Saturday night, post hangover recovery, we had a big feed of Royal cafe burgers (yum) and lazed on the couch. What a slobby day!
Sunday proved to be not much better, though in the afternoon we hit the shops for a couple of hours to find mother-in-law some warm clothes for her big Tibet trip – she leaves this Friday. Also got some new gym shoes for myself so can no longer use the my-shoes-are-covered-in-ship-oil excuse. Got these babies:
and will longer suffer from the toe squeeze that my last shoes gave me.
Christianed them this morning with a one hour run (walk) on the treadmill listening to my new personal trainer on the ipod – from itrain.com. God I’m turning into a techno geek.. any way, Grace took me on a run as i am no longer capable of doing it myself and need to be talked through it every minute of the way. Truth was though that Grace had the most annoying American accent that i had to try and ignore her most of the time. New shoes were ultra bouncy and new membership to the downstairs gym (the size of a large wardrobe but in close proximity to apartment so, again, no excuses possible) has begun.
Tomorrow it’s Nicks turn to lead me through the iStrength workout. Let’s hope he’s a bit nicer. The fact that there is actually a gym coach sitting in real life in the gym behind me when I workout may seem a silly really, but you see the one on my ipod can be paused and fastforwarded, which really makes a big difference!
