JusJoJan 17th – It’s in the title (almost)

‘Hyphenated’ is today’s prompt word for JusJoJan, supplied by Sally, and hosted by Linda. Go say hi-(phenated) to both bloggers and give them a follow if you haven’t already.

It’s quite a timely prompt. After all, gyms around the world are jam-packed with newbies hell-bent on getting that six-pack physique. By the end of January the same gyms will be empty except for the most dedicated of gym bunnies, New Year resolutions abandoned in favour of sofa-surfing and a quick ready-meal.

Not me. I know I’m not gym bunny material. I’m much more of a make-it-up-as-I-go person… except yoga nights. I show remarkable self-discipline when it comes to my yoga class. One, it keeps me fit and flexible and two, I get a whole hour of me-time.

Well – (not a hyphen, it’s a dash) I think that’s all I have on the subject of hyphenation. I’ll be back tomorrow with One-liner Wednesday (oh look, one sneaked it at the last minute!).

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!!
