Day 4: Variety – the spice of life
January 4, 2014

4th Jan 2014: A gym without reps

  • 10 minutes treadmill
  • 5 minutes weights – arms & legs
  • 5 minutes hanging knee-pulls/sit ups
  • 30 jumping jacks
  • 10 minutes elliptical cross trainer
  • 5 minutes stepper/exercise bike
  • 5 minutes treadmill

= 40ish minutes and 280ish calories

Over the years, I’ve found that it’s variety and different perspectives which motivates me, rather than repetition – which reminds me of why I wanted to stop horse-riding as a child. Even though I liked riding the horses, we went the same way each week – trotting, cantering and jumping at exactly the same points every time! 🙂

This is Day 4 of a 30 Day Post-a-Healthy-Picture challenge

boxingkidMum: What are you doing?

Son: I’m boxing – I’m being a boxing kid. Imagine if I went to training every day and I got really good and I was against adults and they say to me, “What kind of kid is this?” and I say, “I’m a boxing kid! And I train every day and this is my boxing lesson!”
