Nutrition without standard lunch is working a treat & am not bingeing as could be the case - feels like its working by my jeans as well - Tanita scales have still not arrived just got an email stating they will be in stock Thursday - Well why the ##@ didn't you post that on your website ??? hmm ?? yes of course because I would have gone elsewhere ..... nevermind another few days won't hurt in the grand scheme of things

Plan of taking my breaks & reading well hasn't quite worked out - but am getting plenty of reading on the bus/home - but really do need to start to take my breaks .

Now I think I have lost my cell phone ... bugger just when I have convinced myself an IPhone is not essential!!

Stepped things up a notch, and moved to advanced workouts, its all about attitude ...... mind you my quads won't like me tomorrow

Had a think about yesterday & the intervals, realised its important to keep your head on the 'end game', yes intervals are boring but its 2 x30 mins a week, when you think there is 168 hours a week kinda puts 1 hour into perspective! Whats the end goal when you look at the advanced stuff in "intense conditioning" stuff like 1-arm pushups, jump pull-ups etal,

Okay, my legs were a bit sore, no thats not the word, you know ... but by this evening was good , had spent a bit of the day de-cluttering files & stuff on the mac (making good use of it being the last work day at home boo hoo !).

#6/260- Tonights workout - LITs: 9 cycles
Easy 3/10
Working: 9/10
Did them on the bike as normal

But after 4 cycles I was bored out of my brain & could not continue ..... so decided to do some thing else:

skipping tabatas X3
20 sec work - 10 sec rest & repeat 8 times - 1 min rest between exercises

all this begs the question, am back to that age old problem what is a good replacement for bike/treadmill/rowing machine as I seem to have a very low tolerance for them .. which is not a bad thing except when you are meant to be doing intense intervals ! :)

so while skipping gives you a good sweat am thinking its not a replacement ??? would KB swings 30 sec on/30 sec off then build up work ? open to ideas .....

#was going to cut back as my knee was still sore started yesterday, will make tomorrow an off day to make sure it gets a rest

For the bookfiends out there found a new  book site -  "Librarything"  I have started keeping my collection  but will take awhile to get all my books in there:

on that subject if you are into cyberpunk/singularity Glasshouse by Charles Stross is a must read!
