So today started slowly! knee is still swollen, uncomfortable and stiff which is not good, it's not been this bad for ages!
but once i got it moving, i strapped it up and off i went to @dcgymnasium
for an upper body workout! apart from the last 2 exercises, every exercise was done while sitting on my bum! don't ever be afraid to modify/adapt exercises to accommodate an injury. in fact sitting down can make some exercises harder as you don't have your legs to help push up! i even got some new pb's! i attempted 50kg on my bench press, i didn't succeed, but i haven't tried that weight before, so it was good to see what it felt like. @jkhadley
kindly spotted for me and suggested putting plates under my feet. what a game changer that was, i felt so much more in control and i know that 50kg will be mine! 💪
im gutted that i wasn't able to do @fitwithkitt038
weightlifting class 😔 after watching the @britishwl
comp yesterday, i was raring to go, but the health of my knee has to come first. i've had 3 surgeries on it, i don't want a 4th! but hopefully i can smash the class next week! she's an awesome coach, so get your butt's to the gym if you want to give it a go! it's sundays 4pm till 5pm!
then it was home to do my meal prep for the week. breakfast is ham, little bit of feta and an egg in the middle with a side of spinach and cherry tomatoes. lunch is made up of chicken, chickpeas, baby corn, red pepper, red onion, baby potatoes, tomato passata, small amount of olive oil and balsamic vinegar! it's bloody lovely!
now icing my knee again and hopefully it will be better tomorrow! but i'm making tomorrow a rest day as i've lifted a lot of weights this week and i'm tired! 😜
happy sunday peeps! 💖
