The Weekend Is Over

I'm sat here just getting stuff ready for work and I'm wondering just where the weekend has gone! It has been another cold weekend, it was raining and hailstones fell whilst we were in town shopping and I just wonder if we are ever going to get any good weather? Had a couple of good workouts this weekend, getting used to the new gym now, it's not as good as Fitness First but it's ok for what I need. I've yet to go on a night time but I have to this week, I need to start getting a proper workout routine in place. I have spoken to a guy who used to be at the old gym about personal training which he is happy to do, but I'm still waiting on the X-ray for my knee. Once I have that sorted I can make plans about PT training.

April has been a really expensive month for me with so many birthdays and bills to pay, so I'm looking forward to May and to try and get some saving done, before you know it Christmas will be here again and I will be in the same state as I always am! I have vowed to make sure Christmas is paid for early so that there's money left for us so that we can enjoy the festivities too!

A friend of mine has asked why I don't set up a Twitter page for my bear Five, I as thinking about it as I could use it as my alter-ego and say the things I would like to say, or not! I'll think it over and just maybe do it and see just how many followers he gets. On Flickr, I always get asked about him and keep getting odd messages about why there's no photo's of him and the boys so he is popular on there!

Holiday Is Over

Been a nice week off this week, weather has been sunny but really cold until this weekend when it has started to warm up a little. It has been nice just relaxing and not doing a great deal, although it was a return to the gym this week. I've managed to do a full work out and even managed to run for a minute with no pain from my knee, obviously I didn't want to over do things so next week I'm gonna start pushing a little. This week was more of a get back into it and get used to the new machines at the gym. Some of them are quite different to what was at the old gym, but it's just a matter of getting used to them and also remembering what I used to do with my personal trainer!

Started to get some seeds planted this week too, got seedlings planted too, I just hope the weather warms up now and doesn't kill anything off. Last year the weather was pretty crap and hardly anything grew or like the tomatoes they just wouldn't turn red, stayed green and not even formed properly inside, so loads got thrown away.

So the plans for the next couple of weeks are to go to the gym on a night, see what it is really like, push myself a little with each visit there and hopefully strengthen the knee. I need to sort the diet out too, fine tune it a little as I haven't lost any weight this week, but I'm hopeful things will start to change again!
