I felt really hungry today, I havent had any headaches, I dont have caffeine anyway so although i have missed my decaff tea, it wasnt too bad. The oats for brekkie as always makes me starving an hour or so later so i was glad of my yoghurt snack. I was really ready for my dinner too.
The exercise was fine, the burpees get me as always - they are a brutal exercise, the others were all quite easy but i knew I had done the 3 rounds when i had completed it and i am now very hot and sweaty :-)))

Rylan if you read this re the getups - I noticed you used your hands to get up from the floor, I can do it with out using my hands if i cross my legs and use them to get up - is this acceptable or shoudl i be using my hand to push me up?

Tomorrow I will do the exercise early as advised but on work days with clients on and off all day i dont get the time on Mondays.
