There’s nothing like leaving work on a Friday night.
But even better is leaving work on a Friday night, knowing you haven’t got to go back for, count ‘em, ten days, woop!
I realised as I set the out-of-office on my email, that I hadn’t had a week off since December. So I can’t wait. And it was well overdue too; I’m knackered! I’m ignoring the fact that I get back on deadline day after the bank holiday and the editor’s off. I’m forgetting that, that night, I’ll have to go straight from the office to a major planning meeting, which will finish at about 9-10pm, then drive home and write the story before I go to bed. Lalalalalalala – I’m on holiday now :-)
I was glad to hear, from the comments on my WIAW post, that I’m not the only one who gets stuck in food ruts (or “grooves – thanks Laura; much better way of putting it!)
Because, having trumpeted about shaking it up, I’ve eaten nothing but this:
For breakfast all week. It’s so good :-)
I was going to have something different today but I was in a rush and this is so quick, as well as being delicious – what’s a girl to do?!
I was rushing because I went to my first zumba class. I may not be too good at shaking it up with my diet, so what about shaking up the exercise?! and “shaking it up” is the right description – as I said to the teacher afterwards, I thought I was fairly fit.
She said it was because I’m obviously too used to cycling/riding etc so the high-energy salsa/Latin dancing was – put it this way, I had a jumper on at the start but within five minnutes of warming up, that was off and I was sweating big time :-)
It was brilliant though. I love dancing but I’m not really into going clubbing any more so this is perfect and I love the Latin music – you can’t help but have a big grin on your face as you do it.
I did once join a gym for a bit but I can’t really afford it so my exercise is usually just cycling, riding and general stuff up at the yard but this – really raising the heart rate and getting moving – was brilliant. It’s less than 10 miles away too and you don’t have to block-book so I think I’ll be going back :-)
Pretty chilled for the rest of today I think; just cycling up to ride Dave and probably going to see my best friend and her daughter. All good.
Have you ever tried zumba? Or any other new fitness classes? Or do you tend to stick to an exercise routine?
