Leg Day Recovery Tips

Leg day is one of my favourite days. I love feeling sore afterwards, like I’ve put in some real effort. But after a while the soreness can become downright annoying.

Leg Day Recovery Tips

Depending on what time I work out, I generally notice some soreness around 20 hours afterwards, which peaks around 24-36 hours afterwards.

A Change in Coffee Habits

I have been drinking coffees from the Nescafe Cafe Menu for at least 6 years now. I originally picked them up because I wanted to start drinking coffee (I’m guess because it appears to be an adult thing to do) but didn’t like the instant stuff my parents had. I always loved the smell of coffee but never liked the taste until I tried this brand.

To be honest, when I first started having them I was having 1 sugar in the flavoured ones & 2 sugars in the cappuccino, which is just ridiculous when you think about it. I have also been known to have one every day but in the last year or so I have been limiting myself to 1 or 2 a week, usually when I am out at a client’s office for the day.

They come in a multitude of flavours & usually work out to be around $1 per serve, even when they are not on special. I remember the first time I stocked up on these at the supermarket. I ended up with about 8 boxes, all in different flavours. My favourite flavours are vanilla, caramel & hazelnut.

As much as I love them & like to treat myself, I just don’t think they fit in with my health & fitness goals anymore. We have a pod coffee machine at home, which I use exclusively on weekends & we have a different pod coffee machine at the office so I can still get my fix. There is also a McDonald’s across the road from the office, but let’s face it: I’m not that desperate for coffee.

Unusual Effects of Going to the Gym

On the 15th of January, I finally joined a gym. I had been considering it for a little while, mostly because I love the idea of running inside away from the elements. I follow the gym on facebook & noticed they were offering a very attractive deal, compared to the other 24/7 gyms in my area. I’m pretty sure all the gyms in my area are now 24/7 anyway.
