Shoulders like boulders

Trained Shoulders and abs this morning.. all fabulous - although I do not enjoy overhead rocky presses, it's hard to clear the ponytail at the back and my nose somehow got in the way of one press - ouch! hehehehe

I had forgotten how much I enjoy a low carb diet, yes really, all the ups and downs associated with carbs just go away... I suppose it helps that I love to eat the things that most people cringe over - Tuna, chicken,broccoli, brussel sprouts, asparagus, egg whites... all yummy in my book.

Working today - my boss at the Motel took an extra weeks leave and so I was called in for extra shifts and had to miss my play date at the park with Joseph and that sux! But taking tomorrow as my day off instead and will be spending the morning with Manda and Miss Lily - Yay!

Started getting things organised for the shows, played with the whiteboard last night and phoned around today to ask about the whole "I have no thyroid and take drugs for it" thing. Had great chats with Jason from the INBA, Steve Jones from ANB and Danny from WNBF. They were all so helpful and supportive, it made me feel very welcome.

Might do a bit of cardio tonight after work, it will be a bit cooler for the walk/jog along the waterfront after 8pm and the added incentive of running away from the mosquitoes is all good to hehehehehehehe

I could use the crosstrainer at home but it developed a squeak ages ago.... then I started taking Glucosamine and the squeak went away!!! NO!!!! just kidding hehehehe

Hubby still hasn't looked at it yet, it got so bad I couldn't hear my Ipod over it and I would start counting skeeewwwwwek, skeeewwwwek, skeeewwwweks and that just puts me off big time....
