Today I Froze my Head - Day 6

 Day 6 – Today I froze my head

 

I have nearly lasted a week; I am so happy.  I know this is a journey made up of months and not weeks but to know I have got past week one feels like such an achievement. Tomorrow is rest day and I am looking forward to it.  

 

I have been really enjoying my time at the gym so it might be hard not to go tomorrow.  But apparently rest is an important as exercise and I have to admit to being really quite exhausted tonight.  For the first time my muscles and bones are a little tender, even though I managed to completely immerse myself in the cold bath today… that’s right I jumped in, head under and everything.


I may have gasped a little when I came up for air and the guy was right, for a moment I felt relief before the cold hit my ankles and I crawled falling straight into the hot pool.

 

I have also discovered I adore steam rooms.  I feel like you can literally (as Charlotte would say) feel the toxins leaving your body.  I could happily sit in them for hours, although obviously I don’t.

 

Charlotte and I discovered the ladies room at the EMF gym today.  What an awesome place, absolutely perfect for Charlotte in particular.  It’s a smallish room but with everything you could possibly want and it’s just for ladies. Even though everyone leaves you alone in the big gym it is really nice to have a place where you can be more private and less on show.  We worked really hard today and I have to admit to falling asleep on my lovely hubby this afternoon in front of the telly absolutely wiped out.

 

I am excited that, hopefully Craig will be joining us on Monday.  He is making good progress with his asthma so I am hoping that he will be well enough to get started, albeit gently and slowly.   It will be so much easier once I know we are on this gym journey together.

 

Our dinner tonight was salmon and sweet potato mash, care of the new air fryer.  Thanks Gina for the tip, it really does do salmon a treat.  I also made roasted veges for Charlotte and some Kale chips, it is certainly getting a good workout the new machine.  Thinking I might have to buy myself an air frying cookbook!

 

Day of rest tomorrow so you won’t hear from me.  But I will be back on Monday to let you know how the family trip to the gym goes!
