Surprise!

Today started out like every other Monday morning... slow and dull. I had a few errands to run as per usual, due to losing my job at the end of the Christmas period and being unable to find work since I had to go sign on. (For those outside of England its pretty much benefits for not working).

I'll make it clear now, virtually all of the money goes towards me paying rent & paying for 50% of the shopping each fortnight so its not spent on crap. The remainder of the money covers my phone contract (£20) and gym membership (£15).

I got home at around 11:30 and was getting my stuff together ready to go hit the gym when the home phone rang. I ignored it at first, if its someone for me they'll call me. Then it occurred to me Saga (check back a few blogs if you're not up to date) STILL hadn't sent me a letter saying I was unsuccessful or not. I darted through the living room and out into the hall, answered the phone and sure enough....

"Hello, this is Laura from HM at Saga" HELL YES!.

Out of the three tests taken I scored 80% and blew past the required percentage. I now have an interview scheduled for this Wednesday at 14:30 in Folkestone.

After walking to Broadstairs and grabbing some lunch I hit the gym and I hit it hard.

Warm up: Light stretching, 10 minutes running at 15mph/24kmph.
Main: 6 sets/10 pull ups, 2 sets/ 10 lat pull downs, 2 sets/10 shoulder press, 4 sets/ 20 leg press, 4 sets/ 10 hamstring press.
Sub main: 5 minutes/ boxing bag.
Cooldown: 5 minutes jogging at 8mph/12kmph, light stretching.

So, how was everyone else's days?
