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

Ohh Look something SHINY!!!!!

Monday morning....

Mondays are always a hard day to get your motor started and to become enthusiastic about... well for a start it is Monday and I am sure there is a law some where that makes it illegal to actually be pleased its Monday...

So Monday morning we are up and ready ands we headed to the gym for the first day of the week long trial of 5am openings....

As usual there was us, Bill, and Julie... and I will admit to having a sinking heart as no other cars were there waiting when we arrived... then low and behold the Others arrived!!!!

By 5.30am Joel had counted 10 members who were training their little muscles off and we were over the moon with the response!!! See there are other idiots out there who want to train and still fit in the rest of life into a day...

I ended up having to wait a whole 27 seconds for the lady who I usually have to worry about getting on the cross trainer before me at 6am to finish at 5.45am before I stepped onto it and my whole workout was done and dusted right on time....

Fingers, toes, eyes and any other body part crossable are crossed in the hope that because of the good turn out the 5am hours will stay...

Joel has also given me a sponsorship deal and I am extremely grateful to him for!!

He is extremely supportive and is backing me as a seasoned competitor, and that has made a huge difference to my head space and focus, it is exactly what I needed after last weeks trials and tribulations, so I am now officially sponsored by Bribie Physically Fit - watch this space for the new Logo and me wearing the official T Shirt YAY!

Once again I am of the opinion that if I can do anything to encourage just one other person to change their lifestyle all the hard work, sweat and tears will be worth it... Maybe with me being sponsored by Joel will make another woman over 40 get the bug and change her life.

Anyway enough of the Shiny Stuff.. It was Monday so I trained Quads and Abs this morning, did the 20 mins of cardio, ate right on diet, then came home and headed back to the gym for 40 mins of cardio, 20 on the cross trainer and 20 chasing the arse of a nice male 20 something on the treadmill in front of me.... Yes I can still run at 11mph when the need arises hehehehehehehehehe

Oh and check out Raechelles blog!!!! I'm not old!!! I still have another 22 years of competing to go!!!! So now I have to so some study and tomorrow is another day of new dreams and hard training... hell its great to be back to being me!
