This “sad but true” moment of the day is brought to you by hockey:
I make the girls I coach do “The Mountain Climber” at the end of each practice. Essentially it is doing 10 push ups and skate a length of the ice, 10 sit ups and a length of the ice, 10 mountain climbers and a length of the ice. You partner up so when you’re doing pushups your partner is skating a length - this gives you a time limit on how fast you get done the pushups, situps and mountain climbers.
It’s a hard drill, I did it for years.
After some razzing from the girls I agreed to partner up and complete it so that I could “see what they were going through” (to which my response was - get over it I’m the coach).
Holllyyy mother of God I’m sore today. My shoulders, hips, legs. Nothing gets you in shape quite like hockey, lol.
More of the “I’m actually trying to lose weight not posting instagram photos on my blog” attempts. I’ve had an increase in followers the last few weeks so I think this is the perfect way to introduce myself.
This blog has turned into “a place to put my instagram photos”.
In terms of exercise I’ve been so lazy. I woke up at 8am to do dishes, clean the bathroom, sweep and vacuum. It was awesome.
Then, I went for a run around my neighbourhood. The route I take is literally 5km from leaving the door of my building to getting back. SO perfect. I ran and walked and mostly enjoyed the morning. When I got back my dad was up and made coffee.
I’m full and only sitting at 1,234 calories. Irritating.
7am: Wake up & breakfast
10am: Work event
12pm: home for a nap.
well i WAS going to go for a run before work but its legit thunder and lightening outside.
…… so I slept until 9 and watched movies, woops
