FIGURING OUT THE FIFTIES.... SO THIS IS WHAT IT IS ALL ABOUT.......

All better now...

Ok, not only did my brain melt down but so did my computer..

So I sat back and left both alone for a few days to let them sort themselves out...
Firstly than you all for the great they helped so much!!! Liz & Shelley made me take a good long look in the mirror at the gym, and there I was! Still cut, stronger than before the competition, pushing weights heavier then ever and I still have Flat abs!

I realised one of my problems was the amount of time I now spend in the Saggy Baggy Uniform. I see myself in the mirror ready for work, at work, when I come home from work... I started to see myself only in the SBU and not in my gym gear or my jeans that I bought to fit me when I was down at contest weight and which still fit me perfectly. SOoooo my brain only saw me as Saggy Baggy..... I am not!!!! Thank you Fifi for helping me to remember that what I do is not who I am HUGS right back at you!

It took going out with my daughter for coffee on Wednesday night to realise that my "contest size" clothes still fit me perfectly....
While leaving my brain alone it worked away on my computer problems and how to fix the memory problem and I finally had time to do that yesterday.... I have now moved some programmes around so this thing will at least survive long enough for us to save up for it to go to a real technician...
As for what I really want to do... I am now researching courses on Nutrition/Naturopathy. I had a great chat with the owner of the local health food store and he helped me with where to look and what to look for in a course. Naturopathy has always interested me and the dieting etc required for competing bought Nutrition to the top of my "what to do" list. Thanx mqo1 for helping me focus on where I want to be it worked THANK YOU!!
We have changed the way the dogs come and go through the house during the day and Morgan has not been digging to china or practicing her furniture removal skills since the changes (Touching wood here while typing!)

Went to DFO yesterday and had a major score on Puma boxing boots!!!! Retail price $140.00, DFO Price $90.00, on sale $40.00, 40% off today........ $24.00!!!!!!!!! Yes I said $24.00 for beautiful Blue Puma Boxing Boots - Yeeehaaaaa I actually walked right round DFO and went back and bought a black and highlighter green pair as well heheheheh And I don't even box... YET!!! LOL! But they re just so cool!!!!!!!!
All through this turmoil I have been training hard and heavy, I have added back a bit more cardio to help with my head space and I am now feeling so much better. Back on track for October with 119 days to the Olympia. 16 weeks give me more time than I need to get back to competion condition now that I now how my body works.

I am off to see Kelli for a weight and measurement session on Wednesday and that will really tell me if I am heading in the right direction r not, until then I am just keeping to he plan and working hard.
LOOK AT MY NEW BOOTIES!!!!
