A beautiful sunny Thursday – and I weigh in for my quest to lose the 3 kgs I have gained since my hip operation.Β  The scales we have to hand are actually in stones and lbs (I’ll have to do the conversion on line as I have no idea what that reading means). 10 stone 6 lbs is equal to 66.2 kgs – see below.

Off to the gym and it’s leg day.Β  I am trying to do legs every other day to build the strength and muscle that has been deteriorating since my hip replacement operation.

Leg press – feet wide and high followed by feet together

Calf raises

Leg extensions

Squats followed by a version of sissy squats – see the video for this example

Deadlifts

And finishing off with 45 minutes of cardio on the cross trainer.

The gym have started to sell supplements – they didn’t sell them last year when I was here.Β  I don’t have any protein powder so ask for a sample of the one they are selling – the name escapes me right now but it was a peanut butter flavour – when I ask to buy a pack, they tell me they don’t have that flavour until next week – grrrrr.Β  So, I don’t buy any and will wait for that to come in.

I am off back to the gym this afternoon when it re-opens after siesta at 5 pm for another 45 minutes of cardio – I will get rid of this 3 kgs.
