I had a great day yesterday. I spent the afternoon in Rye helping out at a book launch, where I was on meet and greet duties, plying the attendees with wine and Pimms, while safely sticking to soft drinks myself. I would mention how much the Lady Mayoress drank in the hour in which she was there but I’d better not in case that would be grounds for locking me up in Ypres Tower for eternity or something.
After the launch, I got the train to Canterbury to see Pygmalion at the Marlowe Theatre. The show was absolutely fantastic and this review in The Telegraph of a recent performance in Bath just about sums it up.
Uncharacteristically for me, I arrived home sober at a reasonable hour and sat down in front of the telly to have a sandwich (I hadn’t eaten all day), a glass of wine and a not too late night. Uh oh. Quadrophenia had just started and my sandwich turned into a sandwich, two packets of crisps and a bar of chocolate; the glass of wine turned into most of the bottle and the not too late a night turned into me going to bed around 1.30am. Oops.
Still, I didn’t feel too bad when I woke up but couldn’t really be arsed to go for a run and I feel too wobbly on my bike the day after drinking so that was out. But… you know… because it’s Juneathon that meant slacking was not an option so I decided to do some kettlebells with my 10 Minute Solution Kettlebell Ultimate Fat Burner DVD I reviewed a while back.
Although it’s slightly misleading calling it a kettlebell workout as it mostly uses dumbbells or hand weights, not kettlebells, it’s a good workout. It contains 5 x 10 minute workouts so you can either do all of them, or just choose the ones you fancy doing at the time. Today I fancied doing the maximum fat burner and the total body sculpt and now I haven’t an inch of fat and I am as sculpted as the Venus de Milo, except I still have my arms which is handy as doing kettlebells would be a tad tricky without them.
