Sore today, strong tomorrow? Is that the phrase? Well, Cross Fit, eat your heart out! Cross Fit a bit expensive? I have the solution! Volunteer for house moving duties!
Mum and I drove a couple of hours east yesterday to help my sister move house. This involved a lot of lifting and shifting of all sorts, down from the first floor of her old flat, up the 3 floors to her new flat. Mum and I have stipulated that the next move must be in to a ground floor flat. It was nice to spend some time with both my mum and sister though, and despite a couple of moments of fraying temper (mine), and some impressive bruises.
The three of us were completely pooped come yesterday evening, and knew the sore muscles awaited us today. To make matters worse, I then pulled a muscle in my shoulder/neck in the shower this morning.
In other news, Matt and I have been half and half paleo since we finished the Whole 30, and it really is noticeable how eating sugar and rubbish impacts on us both. With that in mind, we’ve decided to do another Whole 30 in September, ready to take a bit of a bigger step into a 90% ish paleo diet. This time round though, I intend to exercise, reintroducing some running and kettlebells. I won’t be doing much this week, as I have a week’s holiday, in which Matt and I will be visiting family and gallivanting.
