Another day in Paradise...

Nothing much to report tonight, I trained what I train on a Thursday... Shoulders and Abs.. my weights are down but then I am running on minimum intake at the moment so that is to be expected. So instead of doing 12 reps of HEAVY I have been doing 20 reps of LIGHT for all my exercises for the last three weeks..

Same routine just another way, which makes a change but..

I am really looking forward to training after the comps as I do love training with the big boy weights and I have to admit that with my low carbs diet and a bit of Nanaism I loose count before I get to 20 reps LOL...

It's goes a bit like this... please remember I am officially a Nana and I do wear an Ipod with my songs on it.....

Pick up weight and wait for the Pat Benatar to kick in...

Curl up 1... ohhhhh I believe there comes a time
up 2..when everything just falls in line
up 3.. when we will learn from our mistakes
up 4... The deepest cuts are healed by faaaaaaaaate
shit up 5.. de dum de dum..
up 6..
up 7..
shit 12... umm no 10
up 12...
and 13.. the DEEPEST CUTS ARE HEALED BY FATE...
damn 15.., 16..... where was I ... 20!

Yep sometimes there is more than one reason to train using the 12 rep range LOL

Anyway, trained, went to sucky job and had a not so sucky day which was pretty nice, I am finding I am not hungry as much as I thought I would be.

I do KNOW when my next meal is due and unless you have a death wish do not stand between me and the food, but I am not hanging out for it... which I think is probably because I have been eating this way with no spikes or changes for around 6 weeks now and just slowly heading in the right direction...

So nothing to nasty, sad, angry, grumpy, sleepy otherwise to report, just another day in this Paradise... Where I am lucky enough to have the chance to be doing what I have waited most of my life to do...

10 more sleeps!
