Day 9 – Resting Heart Rate

Day 9 already and today was another chill day.  Getting used to the newbies and the itinerary doesn’t really spring in to action until tomorrow.  Bit of Yoga, Rebounding and a bit more Yoga.

I have two main NSV (non scale victories) from this retreat.

1)  I can do a thigh stretch without clinging to a wall.  Wish I had taken a picture today but will so try and take one tomorrow.

2) Resting Heart Rate.  OMG I so cannot get over this.  My scales tell me heart rate,  I have a blood pressure monitor and now a Fitbit all telling me my heart rate.  So for last 6 months of monitoring it’s been in the 80’s ave of 84 BPM.  This week lower 60’s even in the 50’s.  I am so shocked by this.  I know now that I have to build this in to my life style permanently.


Here’s a few random pics from last few days.  Here we had just been nearly wiped out by an articulated lorry.  As you do.
