T2 Fitness Challenge Info Meeting

A Change Is As Good As A Rest – Not sure that is quite true because sometimes change from the regular, mundane routine of our lives, can be hard but that’s what makes it exciting. 

Last weekend, I was a little apprehensive as I made a change; rather than going for a run (which I know I can do quite easily), I took the T2 Fitness Cycle class on Sunday. I have to say, it was hard but a lot of fun. Coach Chris gave us plenty of encouragement along with plenty push. Will do it again next time we are in town.

The other change I will be making over the next few weeks is with my eating. Paul and I do pretty well most of the time but we have been getting more lax about it over recent months. So I signed us up for the T2 Fitness Challenge; particularly for the meal planning etc. It is going to be tough and I think I might almost blow up Anna’s phone with questions but with help from everyone else who has signed up, I am going to make sure we (Paul and I) do our best.

This week’s tasty dish: Lamb and Tomato Stew : “At Home”, CrossFit.com (The smell of lamb cooking conjures up so many childhood memories for me.) Not Paleo but looks good.

Today’s Fun/Trivia: Happy Mothers’ Day on Sunday. Although it is referred to as Mothers’ Day, in my mind this Sunday should be a celebration for all ladies who take care of and encourage children whether for a few minutes every now and then or 24/7. These ladies are a special gift.
