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

Not the usual reason

Usually when these blogs go silent it is because one of us is down, droopy, bloated, broken or just plain sad....

I am none of the above!

I am travelling along quite nicely thanx, doing my training, throwing in a bit of cardio now and then, eating healthy and wholesome foods

So really I have had nothing to blog about...

My training has been strong and I have been slowly increasing the weights that I push/pull/carry/sling/toss/jerk/raise/lower...

I had personal bests today with my behind the neck military press and lying leg curls.. I can even brag that I now use the same weight with the military press as Hubby does! Although he did say it was because his weights were down as he has hurt his leg.. riiiiighhhht.... and that's why his shoulder exercises are down... cause of a sore leg.... riiigggghhhtttt LOL

Actually he has managed to hurt his leg quite badly and now as a huge lump just under his right quad... not sure how he has done it, we did have a moment of death defying dropping on Saturday when he went to rehook the smith machine after doing wide stance squats and completely missed the hook! The whole stack crashed down and took him with it... Bloody scary and although his back was a bit tender his legs seemed fine, then last night his leg was swollen and tonight it is really sore... In true male fashion he is refusing to go to the doctor...

What was really frightening was that when the weights dropped I tried to save him and I almost broke a NAIL!!! Scary but true! It's ok though, my nails are fine... whew! LOL

I have been eating a lot cleaner again and seem to have gotten over the post comp food fury. We had a couple of coffees out on the weekend and although Hubby had the usual cake/loaf with them I didn't feel the need to indulge, not because I was worried about it, just didn't really need to eat them so I didn't.

Didn't get out on the bikes this weekend as the winds were freezing and too strong... One of the drawbacks to having two solid wheels is the wind pushes me around twice as much as wheels with spokes... I am used to the surges that it causes but I have been told that it looks like my wheels are going to come off LOL.

Ohhhhh and I have a question!!!!!!!!

Do you accept complete strangers as friends on Facebook???? The female complete strangers I am ok about... Although I don't always say yes to them either...

But what's with these guys that ask to be your friend and I always check out their other friends and they are usually just a huge list of female bodybuilders and figure women.... Do you accept him??? I don't just want to be part of a brag list.... ick! So... do you????

Apart from that I am gliding along..... Just counting the days till the 12 weeks kick in for October and the real fun starts...

Off to do meals etc now...

Hi Cath,
Glad to hear everything is trotting along perfectly for you :)
Re Facebook, I have learnt the hard way to be very weary (I have had a very bad experience with a female bodybuilder obsessed guy) so if it's someone that I don't recognise by name/pic I usually look at the mutual friends and extended friends list. If all our mutual friends are female bodybuilders/figure girls I usually delete right there and then. If there are not enough to be able to tell I look at their extended friends list - if most of them are our type I also delete. Who knows what they are doing when looking at things that friends have access to, like photos etc...
Anyway that's just my advice!!

I've had a few unknowns on my face book asking to be friends, not from BB's as I'm not really one. Just be careful, only because they can spam you depending on what enail you have. Speaking of which I will change mine, as I've have more shit since being on facebook.

Sorry about hubby, I don't blog if nothing is tooo good or too bad, but maybe I should. Even though you didn't get much out of it we do.

Hi Cathy

I enjoyed your email, even though you said nothing much was happening. It's nice someones just be able to talk about nothing. Doesn't always have to be earth-shattering stuff to be enjoyed.

It's great to hear though things are mosying along nicely for you and life is good. Love your attitude! :)
