Training Day 28

This morning I had a couple of meetings in Derby about a website I’m setting up and met with two very helpful people, which ended up being quite an inspiring conversation in the end.

It’s great to be linked with like minded people and firing ideas off each other.

While in Derby I dropped into see some of my friends from Derby County FC and gently dropped the idea of doing a bucket collection before a game there.

It would be amazing if this did happen and I should find out tomorrow - fingers crossed!

I went to the gym this afternoon and did my arms circuit. My knee is feeling better and I think if I keep off until Friday I should be okay to resume my legs circuit then.

Really enjoyed the gym and felt that I’d turned a corner today with me upping my weights and feeling stronger. I can see my arms and physique changing so all of the hard work is working!

I’m getting very used to my diet as well, it’s become a habit now and the ‘norm’, I’m very pleased to see that there is a visible difference in how my appearance looks.

This is one of my favourite meals at the minute - pork loins with sprouts, bacon and brown rice. Full of goodness, protein and carbs.

Ultimately, this is all in preparation for my challenge and the main aim is to raise some funds for the Lymphoma Association so if you can donate please click on my JustGiving page on the link below.
