Hey friend, happy Saturday! We’ve had a lovely day once again with our family dogs and chilling out on a terraza with some coffee. We also got roast chicken takeaway from a restaurant which was Rambo‘s favourite. 😊
I think the last time we went there was well before the lockdown in Spain which started on March 15th 2020. We actually enjoyed it much more than the McDonalds that we’d been inhaling on weekends and the dogs enjoyed it too.
During siesta I did a bit of work on the laptop and even had a little helper. Cooper just loves to sleep on my legs, he has to always be touching even if it’s just with his paw or nose. So cute. Chester settled for a nap in the bed and then a full side FLOOP on the cold floor tiles.
This evening we watched a new show on Netflix called Click Bait. If you like detective or crime shows, it’s worth a watch. It’s about a guy who is supposedly kidnapped and a video of him put online, when the video reaches 5 million views he will die.
So after a lovely day and cleaning up after the pups (who knew that Chihuahua’s shed so much hair?!) I decided it was time to go back on Ring Fit Adventure.
Day 11/30 Fitness Gaming Challenge
Was I scared to head back into Ring Fit Adventure? Hesitant? Yes and yes! I know you have to keep motivated and push yourself a bit when on a weight loss and fitness journey like I am on my Fit By 40 challenge but it’s important to know when to press pause. With my past kidney issues (nephroptosis) and the pulled muscle in my flank, I didn’t want to push too much.
Tonight, however I decided it was time to get back to Ring Fit and at least start it up and see how I got on with the dynamic stretches. If it didn’t feel right I would stop.
Level 29 to 30 passed quickly as I played the Aerochute level for the first time. I didn’t pass so I paid 50 coins, I will try another time, I just couldn’t work it out and wasn’t keen on the side stretching that came with it.
Thankfully I was feeling strong because the arm master, cleverly named Armando, wanted to have a few rounds. I selected all of the arm moves, including the Overhead Arm Press which is now my new favourite fit skill. It felt good to be using my arms and not so much waist twisting or bending.
After this I hit Level 31 which I’m very proud of. I could have sat down and not worked out, but I moved my butt. 😅
I’m also starting to lose a little bit of weight after a MAJOR plateau. I think all the hard work I put in during August’s 15 Day Ring Fit Adventure Club challenge is starting to show.
I hope you’re having a good weekend so far and I’ll catch up with you tomorrow. 💖 I’m off to do my Duolingo before it gets too late.
