After really pushing myself on Week 2: Day 1’s workout, and then doing a gym session the day after, I had a couple of days off.
On the second day off my abs really hurt. Like, dead painful. And it took a while for that to stop.
I also had to get on a plane to Brazil (from the UK), and ended up drinking quite a lot of the free wine and eating all the food, so this morning, after receiving a 7am wake up call I hadn’t requested, I headed to the hotel gym in São Paulo (thankfully air conditioned) and did Day 2’s work out.
I was alone, so was able to not feel self conscious about my huffing and puffing. And could also do it in front of a mirror so I could check my technique.
Week 2: Day 2: 1/4 Venus
Push ups were hell. I have quite skinny arms so have always struggled with them. But I did it!
After doing 150 of the fuckers on Saturday, 20 sit-ups was a breeze, and I also found the squats fairly straight forward.
It’s the same again tomorrow, and then there’s a horror show coming for the final day of this week…
I’m already noticing a difference in my body shape. However subtle. And I also feel more energised and don’t want to eat and drink as much crap as I used to.
Cutting down on the booze is hard though, and I know that’s where the belly comes from…
