Your destiny lies in your own hands

I had my usual Sunday morning session with Randy.

After I finished my 5-minute warm-up on the cross-trainer I did the first circuit:

I did that three times with a break in between each set. I did another 3 minutes on the cross-trainer, had a short break and then did the second circuit:

I was done! Randy stretched me out and I was done.

That afternoon I went to Shake Shack for the first (and possibly last) time. I was famished by the time we ordered and I had a double Shackburger and fries. And a diet Pepsi (I almost laughed when I ordered that).

I know, I know – I could have gone for the single Shackburger but I was hungry. My friend tried to convince me that the cheese fries were worth trying but I don’t really like anything on my fries. As I tucked into the burger that I’ve heard people raving about for months, I could see the grease dripping out of it onto my tray. It was kind of… gross. I’m not saying I’d never eat there again, but I definitely would consider other options first!

I woke up with sore obliques, abs and hamstrings on Monday. I had yoga on Monday morning – with more side planks!

I woke up on Tuesday feeling feverish and my throat was scratchy. And my sides were still aching! I took some Panadol and felt better for most of the day but by the time I went to sleep I was feeling terrible. I cancelled my session with Randy and didn’t work out on Wednesday or Thursday. I just wasn’t feeling up to it. I also had a really heavy weekend and by the time Saturday evening came round I was feeling like hell – fever, cough, cold. Not a good week for me.

Low point of the week? Starting the week with a burger and fries and then getting sick at the end of the week.

High point of the week? Starting the week with a burger and fries!

Weight loss? I actually managed to stick to 70 kg all week.
