Wednesday Weigh Day

Woke to a lovely Autumnal morning,
bit on the chilly side but lovely all the same.
Went to the gym, was first there again,
the doors were not even open.
Did an hour and ten minutes doing the full monty:)

2000 metres rowing in 11:30 minutes
15 minutes on the ^&*(&^^ crosstrainer!! (Hate it!)
20 minutes on resistance equipment.
30 minutes on treadmill averaging 5.5 miles per hour.
My heart rate has settled down, when I first started it was 144
It now ranges between 118 and 124, pretty good don't ya think;)
I actually love the rowing best, I imagine myself in the Oxford v Cambridge Boat Race.
But I suppose really I am a Griff Rhys Jones groupie following him down the river, very slowly:(

When I got back I stepped on the scales and what did I see?
Do I need a drum roll?
Or do I need a box of tissues?......

Dah Dah..... I need both!!

Another TWO pounds gone, not quite forgotten but gone.
I am so pleased with ME.
I just wish I had clicked about the exercise,
especially with K. (Fat[free]Me and her fab success.
But better late than never and I am now pretty confident I will get to my target.
