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

stuffs been happening

Nothing major just been busy and trying to fit it all in... Wow just checked my last blog, didn't realise I haven't been here since Tuesday!!!

Ok so catch up time.. again....

Wednesday went to see the fabulous Kelli, I have to admit I was totally stressed all the way there as mu weight had not moved, well it had, it had gone up by 100 grams.. excellent... not! So by the time I got there I had the whole "this is too hard, I'm giving up" speech ready for when I was told I was not going to be ready in time...

Well bugger me I had dropped 6.8mm which meant the fat is going and the muscle is coming instead... so much for the giving up speech... for some weird reason my body really responds to the pre-contest diet.. hey not complaining but it is a little weird to be gaining muscle when you are cutting.. maybe it's cause I'm above average age??? Who knows as I said "NOT complaining!"

I have managed to fit in a fair bit of study this week and have now got back into study and assignment mode. The assignments are right back on track and I am one away from finishing my first module "Nutrition 1". I am really enjoying this... it was a bit freaky at the start having to learn how to learn all over again, but now I just soak it up... yay!

Training is chugging along nicely, after my hissy fit doing legs last week I hit them heavy and hard today and I have no nasty aches, just good aches, so I'm really relieved about that...

Well that's about it... nothing wild or exciting really, just doing it.... Had a chuckle to myself when I read Laurens post about work mates, yep that is pretty much how my days go, today I was offered Ferrero chocs and had to explain yet again to the whole afternoon tea crowd that one DID matter and doing an extra 15 mins of cardio for one chocolate was not only not worth it but really it doesn't work that way...

Just an ordinary weekend for me, back to work on Monday then Tuesday off, for some reason people get snotty when the pay lady doesn't do their pay cause she feels like a long weekend... LOL

Now I must go and get the daily groceries and have a coffee in the real world before coming back to prepare the meals for tomorrow and tonight...

Promise to try and keep this up to date!!

Hi Cath, looks like the mind is starting it's games with you. Making you think you can't make it, and that it is all too hard. Well, as far as I can see it was both right and wrong. It was right that this journey is hard, but it was wrong about you not being able to make it!

As for the choccie, Ferrero's aren't that nice anyways. If I was going to have to do an extra 15mins for something, it would be for a teeny piece of handmade fudge. mmmmmmmm!!! But again, not worth it!

Have a good weekend, keep strong and stay focused!
