Day 2, complete! Maracattack was much harder today because my muscles were aching so much from yesterday, especially when it got to the abs section. The side planks are an absolute killer! But I made it through to the end again, kind of. Because the steps in the routine change so quickly, it’s hard to keep up with what you should be doing. And sometimes they don’t show Miranda’s modified version until you’re already supposed to be halfway through, which isn’t ideal! But when I get lost, I just improvise, any movement has to be better than none!
After tea tonight I went for a quick walk down to asda and back. I say quick, it really was. It was lashing down with rain and very windy so I couldn’t wait to get back inside. It didn’t help that part of my route was down a long dark alley, which was populated with a group of what I shall politely call ‘youths’. As I started walking down the alley, they started following me, so I upped my speed to get away from them and back to streetlights as quick as possible!
Not a bad day in all though, stuck to my diet plan again, with space for 2 of my lovely thorntons chocolates that I got for Christmas. The box is going to last ages at this rate!
Oh, and in case you were wondering, the picture today is of my maraca substitutes, the Zumba toning sticks which came with my Zumba DVDs. They sound just like maracas and are slightly weighted, perfect for the job!
