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

2010 begins, and have you seen this...

Well really it began on Friday as we came home from a great New Years Eve at Southbank.

I DID wear the shoes and they were very comfortable, fabulous shoes, just fabulous... ohhh and here is the NYE funny for you.. Hubby in his snake skin almost winkle picker shoes and me in my fabulous fish shoes sitting on a low wall waiting for the fireworks.. Lady slides past between the barrier we are behind and us and stops and says... "Fabulous Shoes!!!" "Thanx" I reply.. "No dear not yours.. HIS!!!" LOL

Had a yummy Greek dinner which was not that far off from what we would normally eat, more by good luck than good management LOL with lots of Greek salad, grilled meats and fresh fruit with only little servings of sugary carby stuff. Of course we washed it all down with lots of bourbon LOL

Then finished off with a Magnum chocolate ice cream from the Streets Ice cream vendor and then coffee and brownie to kill time as we watched the weird and the wonderful wander by ... hmmm have to say there was a lot of weird and not very much wonderful LOL The fireworks were great and we walked back to the hotel when they finished and crashed for the night.

Woke about 7am Friday morning had a quick shower and black coffee and headed home as we had left the fur kids alone for the night and were a little worried as to what mischief they may have got up to... turned out that they were too busy sleeping to even hear us arrive home and greeted us bleary eyed and the house was perfect!

Had eggy oats for breakfast and from then on I have been on pre-comp diet and I am soooo happy to be eating clean again!! Feeling so much better already, and I must admit to enjoying the regimental food preparation and eating, don't know why but it just feels the best way for me to eat...

Trained Chest and 20 mins cardio on Saturday, did 45 mins cardio along the waterfront on Sunday, managed a fair bit of jogging but my hip decided to tell me that rain was coming and ached most of the walk/jog...

Took the bikes out for a quick blat up the coast , grabbed half a cup of black coffee then dashed back with the storm chasing us all the way home and the rain just touching our backs... BLISS to be back on the broom!!!!

Ohh and now that I have ridden her my aches and pains are gone, I always reckon it is because she has such hard unforgiving springs that the bumps and jars in the road make me fly right out of my seat and I think it put my back back in line!LOL

Took a quick walk along Woorim beach as the thunder rolled over the other end of the island and got home before the storm truly hit...

New training programme is all typed up and printed and we trained shoulders this morning with cardio at the end of the session... will be going back down tonight for Abs and some more cardio..

Off I go again heading for the 2010 competitions... Hopefully I will be able to see Kelli this week, but have to check with the boss to see what afternoon off I can have each week before I can book the time with Kelli... Not looking forward to the fat% test but hey you got to start somewhere....

AND... Have any of you seen this... LaFemme a new federation for women only, I found it through the NZ Bodybuilding site.... looks interesting... but I will admit that I like to see the guys running round in skimpy posing suits when I am competing as it takes my mind off the food I am craving LOL


Wonder if they realise that their first competition clashes with the IFBB Sunshine Coast Competition....

I have seen that federation Cathy, I wasn't sure about it myself, but it does look interesting! Let us know if you find out anything more, but I'm definitely going to see the show if I don't participate!

LOL on the shoe lady!

yes, eating clean and regularly with planned meals is easier if you ask me...of course, I'm a virgo-so love to have a schedule..LOL

Yes, have heard of that federation-I think it was Deb that blogged about it a while back. So far I don't think anyone has learned much more. If you do, please let us all in on it!
