First week completed

It is Thursday! Good old casual Thursday, when you can put your jeans on instead of a suit. And when we order something yummy for lunch instead of bringing our lunch boxes. Thursday, the day of expectations, joy and anticipation. We have some friends coming over for a BBQ tomorrow night. It is Joli's classmate's family. The have just finalized their rental agreement in the neighboring compound and will be moving in there shortly. Joli is very happy about this.
I had a night out with the office girls last night. We went to Trader Vic's again. My favourite place with awesome drinks and excellent nibbles. And maybe we will go to the beach tomorrow, if it is not too hot.
Spinning class on Wednesday turned out to be a great hit. I haven't done spinning in almost a year now so it was quite nice to get back into the familiar gym premises, the same instructor (she is fantastic) and some great music. Spinning always makes me exhausted in a re-energizing way, if that even makes sense... I felt great after! As I got home, Joli wanted to go swimming, so we took a quick stroll to the pool and enjoyed a swim just before sunset. We could hear the Iftar- prayers from our little community mosque. Elias had a friend over again for a sleep over and I enjoyed season three of "Game of Thrones". A very good evening indeed!

  2. Heja dig, ett bra sätt att träna och som inte tar så lång tid är att köra "tabataintervaller", 8x20 sekunder med 10 sekunder vila mellan varje intervall. I varje set kan du varva två övningar, t ex upphopp och armhävning. Kör 4 set så får du ett bra pass!
