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

Wednesday, 10 February 2010

Searching for just the right word....

PUSS, wart, scum.... nope none of those...

I'm trying hard to not use the obvious one which begins with "F" for my 730gm muscle loss...

Only 1.8mm skinfold drop, and nearly all of the 1.1kg loss was muscle....

Yes I know that means I still lost 370gms of fat...
Yes I did have a drop from where the fat is sitting - my stomach the rest of me is lean as.....
Yes I did still loose something which is better than nothing or even a gain...

Soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo what do you do...

Change the diet dumbarse... and get on with it and wait to see what happens next Wednesday...

Yes I had a snivel, yes I was gutted, yes I did swear and yes the trip home was a very stoney silent one... but I'm over it...

Back to the gym in the morning, Shoulders and Abs and cardio...

Really what is the other choice??? There isn't one is there...

Which brings me to my Revelation For The Day...

As we were running early for the Kelli visit we went to see Stuart at Go Vita in Currimundi as that is where we get a lot of our supplements and protein powders (the guy is lovely to deal with and has damn good prices!).

So we stop the car and this family wanders across the car park in front of us... Father somewhere between 40-50 no shirt, belly hanging, totally hanging over his shorts, Mother around the same age with a shirt but also with the belly, two daughters one 20ish slopping along belly swinging the other in her teens not as bad as the rest but what hope does she have... All perfect candidates for the Obesity Clinic they are opening in Brisbane. Really if that was your typical Aussie bronzed and beautiful family the ads have been lying big time!!!

So my epiphany was.... I need a photo of that mother on my fridge... Bugger having a photo of the already beautiful international figure girls, I want something to remind me I never, ever, ever want to look like that....... again!

So I am off to the gym tomorrow, carrying on my journey to be in the best condition I can be for the rest of my life...

ohh bugger it... FUCK the muscle loss!

Head up girl, put it behind you. You will gain that precious muscle back and continue to lose that feral FAT! 370g is still a nice drop, so focus on the positive =)

Don't you love the site of the 'typical aussie family' LOL!

Tell Stuart, Chelle his old Ingetria Health Care (Lifespan) Rep says hello next time you see him!

You'll surely gain again what you have loss in your body, and you will be much happier with the outcome of it. What we all need is patience, and I have a pack of it to be inspired on going to my gym session and taking my Best Muscle Building Supplement to achieve my goal of sexy fit body.
