That 37th Exercise Diary…

Another decent week in the gym has meant a restful Sunday feeling goooood! I can’t believe how well me and Matt are sticking to our exercise regime, and HUGE kudos to him because he’s keeping me so motivated (thankkkkkks!!!).

We’ve found it a bit strange actually – the mornings where we don’t get up and head to the gym straight away – we’ve actually been feeling a bit rough!! That’s some crazy backwards stuff going on right there. But we get in the gym, smash out a workout and then feel a million times better.


 Crowne Plaza Yas Island is our gym at the moment, and it’s slowly getting taken over by more and more of Matt’s colleagues, which is brilliant because I love seeing people seeing and feeling the benefits of working out!!

Remember, every weight/speed that’s gone up from last week is in red

Sunday – Rest Day

It’s not my best week of exercise, I know that, but it’s still pretty good. 6 days out of 7 means a whole load of calories burned before breakfast. I’ve got two weeks now until my next weigh-in / measurements so I am looking forward to having a perfect couple of weeks nutritionally and with exercise and hopefully I’ll see some great changes in my body!

What’s your workout plan for the next 7 days? Have you got some classes booked in? I’d love to hear from you so comment below and let me know what you’re up to!
