Frantic Friday

At work I am lucky enough to finish 1 hour early on a Friday.  Which, usually would be a blessing however for some reason every (Friday since I started this new job) has been the busiest day of the week.

I started the day off with my usual breakfast of  Quakers oats, unsweetened soy milk, PHD protein powder in vanilla, peanut butter, agave nectar, ground milled flax seeds with some natural yogurt.  Honestly, if I could eat this every day for the rest of my life, I would be one happy camper!

It just makes me so happy listening to my breakfast going round in the microwave because mixing all the warm ingredients around is my second favorite thing to do!

Eating is of course my favorite thing to do!

This picture was taken out of my kitchen window.  It looks beautiful (and cold).  It reminded me a little of the great Australian sun rises that I am used to.  Man, I miss home sometimes.  Especially when the weather sits around 13degrees every day!

15mins on the treadmill, jogging around level 9-10 and putting the incline up to around 6-7 at times.  It felt like a really good workout, even though I didn't plan to do the hills.  I might research some treadmill workouts for the days where I feel I need to get more cardio in.

20mins of interval training (2mins on 30sec off) with the punching bag.
I completed rounds of set combos:
Jab + right kick / Cross + left kick
Jab, cross + left kick / Cross, Jab + right kick
20kicks each side + repeat
Punching combos etc

This was AMAZING.  It's been a few years since I stopped training in Muay Thai but the fire always burns inside me. I am going to search for a gym where I can resume training again.  I am in even better shape than I was at my "peak" so I really look forward to picking it up again.  I felt so strong in all my combos - even 20kicks each side repeats!

I took this picture while walking out of work for lunch with one of my lovely workmates.  London, you might annoy me sometimes however I can't deny.  You are beautiful right now.

What is your favorite season?  Are you living somewhere abroad?  Do certain things make you miss home?
