Ahh yesterday was a very gloomy day in my head. I went out with Michelle and Jayne to a cute cocktail bar in Hoxton Square. To say I was hung over the next day is an understatement. It was awful. Felt like I was dying. Lesson learned here - never make friends with the bartenders at a cocktail bar ;)
This was AFTER I managed to get myself home from Michelle's house and feel slightly normal. Bleh. Never again! I don't really drink a lot but I guess the quantity got away from me as the drinks were so tasty!
So after sleeping what felt like a mega 10 hours, I managed to get myself up and presentable for work.
WARNING: This skirt is tighter than it looks.
I was walking like a penguin most of the day and was even offered a gentleman's hand to get me onto the train this morning. Ahh.. If it wasn't such an amazing skirt - I wouldn't bother :) You can see details of this outfit here.

This workout was just what I needed! A change up in routine and some more active rests to keep my heart rate up between sets. Bring on tomorrow.
When I got home, I completed a 12min BodyRock workout as well. I was supposed to stay behind at the gym to complete an incline walking workout, but decided against it as I just wanted to get home. I will post my scores for the BodyRock workout separately.
I have been lifting heavier for a good few months now and really feel like I have built up a good base of muscle. I am feeling strong and looking strong, especially in my shoulders and arms. This week I am cleaning up my diet and hope to trim down over the next few weeks.
I want this to be a slow process and I am prepared to do what it takes. So keep checking in to see how I am going with my workouts and the addition of more HIIT/BodyRock/Treadmill type workouts.
I love getting sweaty. Do you?
