so, yesterday Luke and I went on a bit of an adventure to Heaton Park!
an adventure that burnt over my usual days worth of calories, as it turns out…:L
everything was beautifully autumnal, as you can see! We made friends with the squirrels (because we brought along some sunflower seeds for them ;) )
it included a 40-60 minute bike ride which was predominantly uphill (hence why it took so long despite only being about 6 miles away!)and then the park was absolutely massiveee so we were biking around it all day :P
in any case i think i’ll let the pictures speak for themselves :) such a great day, i would definitely go again!
such a beautiful dayyyyyyy
drawback of hot weather = everyone is at the park
and they are obstructing my hill that i usually run up and down for a little HIIT action =/ which is what i wanted to do today.
i’m gonna head back probably just before or after dinner time when they have hopefully cleared out a bit! if they’re still there then i’ll probably just go for a jog/walk and then come home and do Ri30 :P
i’ve done 45 pushups today so far, intended on doing the whole 50 but i got distracted and forgot to do my last set :L something really cool though is that i started doing sets of 10s because the first three sets of 5 felt slightly too easy :D so i did 5,5,5,10,10,10 :)
hopefully i can keep improving with that and soon crank out sets of 10 with ease ;)
for dinner tonight i’m feeling some grilled sweet potato with some rice and mixed veg? contemplating throwing the rice out and replacing with a salad, but then i might not meet my calorie goal for today. decisions, decisions :P i just cba with hot rice. i dont mind grilling/sauteing but the boiling water and whatnot for rice is just like mehhhhhhhhh and it takes so long to cook. i might check my cookbooks for more sweet potato suggestions cause i got one that needs using up :)
ALSO i’m thinking of making some extra grilled Sweet potato to save in the fridge, and use in a wrap tomorrow for lunch perhaps?
you guys will get picture(s)/reviews in any case.
