A person does not grow from the ground like a vine or a tree, one is not part of a plot of land. Mankind has legs so it can wander

Today, I agreed with my husband that we’d do a legs workout together. However, that completely slipped my mind until about 9.30 pm. Even worse, the workout required jump squats, so there was no way I could do it inside – we live in an apartment building, and I’d be risking the wrath of our downstair’s neighbours. Reluctantly, I got back out of my pyjamas, put on my workout gear, and headed out into our shared garden.

However, once we got out there, we had a lot of fun. This workout comes courtesy of 8fit, and is another workout requiring you to do everything non-stop. You do each exercise for 30 seconds, for a total of 8 minutes (i.e. 4 sets), but with no breaks.

While this is a fast way to get your workout out of the way, the downside of this, of course, is that over time my form began to suffer. I kind of prefer longer, slower workouts, because at least you can focus on getting the form right.

For our workout, there were just four exercises:

  • Lunges
  • Squat jumps
  • Skater lunges; and
  • Calf raises

By the time we were done, my husband and I had both worked up a sweat, despite him being considerably fitter than me. Even better, we had laughed and had some fun together. I always find that spending time getting outside with my husband, whether that is walking, running, cycling, or working out, always ends up being a great time.

On another note, I’ve made some exciting progress. My current weight is 67.9 kg, meaning I had 12.9 kg left! I’d stalled a little over the past few days, so it was reassuring to see the weight coming off.

Until tomorrow – stay happy, stay healthy.
