Lots of packed snacks again today (like the cottage cheese with tinned pineapple here) and back into the gym.  Cottage cheese on plain rice cakes isn't great; I think it needs something like Marmite mixed in for flavour.  Increased the weights on the side planks with rows and lunges with cross-arm-to-opposite-knee to 6kg but, really really annoyingly I forgot my heart rate monitor watch so had to estimate the overall burn.

Another really nice bit of progress was in my negative motion pull-ups which I actually managed 2 sets of 5 at 4 seconds for the lowering.  A great improvement, so maybe 3 whole days off was a good bit of recovery and muscle re-building :o)

  1. I agree about the plain cottage cheese on rice cakes, I usually mix in some nutritional yeast to give it more flavour. Whatever those sausages are they sound gorgeous! I'll have to keep an eye out for them next time I'm at waitrose!

  2. The sossies are delish (400kcals for 3 though!) especially if cooked slowly on a low heat so they stay juicy.

    BTW, I just tried the Australian Organics body lotion and it smells -amazing-! I really love it.
