One-liner Wednesday – Oops! I may have overestimated my abilities…

What have I been up to this time? Well… I’ve hit the dreaded weight loss plateau in which no poundage has departed from my body over the past two weeks.

How annoying! But I’m not beaten. I have a few tricks up my sleeve. I can add I some strength work (which I’ve avoided for 2years) and I can add some sprint work on my stationary bike ride.

I opted for both! Not only that, I followed the strength workout to the letter! Loads of reps per set and loads of sets! I could barely walk afterwards.

In my defence, I did stretch afterwards. However, no amount of stretching could undo the damage. My quads and hamstrings are screaming. My inner leg muscles are equally annoyed and my butt is on fire!

Needless to say, I’ve overdone it. There’s nothing to do but rest the muscles, gently stretch them out and restart next week.

This time I’ll do fewer reps and sets!!

JusJoJan 28th – huh?

What a cracker of a word we have today – abscission! Even as I typed the word I didn’t get any guesses from my iPhone. Anyway, I digress. We have Lakshmi to thank for the word, and Linda for hosting this daily challenge throughout January. Please visit both of them.

Now that I’ve consulted a dictionary (I’m sure I’m not the only one) I realise that one of my favourite times of the year only happens courtesy of abscission. Without it I wouldn’t have the fun of wading through autumn leaves! I don’t think I’ll ever see autumn in quite the same way now.

Every day is a school day!
