Still nothing...

to report....

Training is great, I'm enjoying the change of pace with the rep increase, the training becomes more like a circuit workout and although I like to see big numbers in the weight column of the spreadsheet sweating it out with 30 reps of leg press is fabulous too.

Cardio is now 20 mins in the morning and 40 mins at night, no complaints there although I will try and find the time to add a couple of new songs to the Ipod. I only have 20 on there as I found was always pushing the skip button instead of actually listening to a song. But now that I have increased my time on the treadly I need a few more to ramp up to.

My bestest favouritest one at the moment is Bat out of Hell (live version) by Meatloaf, as I find I can run at 9mph with the beat at the start but by the time he is riding is silver & black phantom bike I am up to 11mph.. Yep songs are a definite plus when it comes to cardio motivation. Of course I still have a couple of others I need to just get me through the whole 40 mins but I can replay B.O.OH. over and over and use it as HIIT... Its getting that bad now that I am waking up in the morning with the song playing in my head LOL

The reduction in food has not been that radical, so I am still a pretty happy camper. I hang out for the diet jelly and chocolate protein powder as my final meal of the day though and savour it by eating it with a tiny teaspoon LOL

I do think the cardio may be a bit tougher than I think though as I finished the jelly at 7.30pm last night put down the bowl, told Hubby I would watch a bit of telly as I was waiting for a phone call and he woke me to tell me that UFC was on which means it was 9pm LOL hmmm lucky the phone call didn't come cause I would have been all "what? huh? who? lol

Well got to hang out a load of washing Hubby put on this before he buggered off to work, can't complain I think its the first load he has done so far this year but it sucks into my morning routine of computer time... really how inconsiderate lol

True nana now......nana napping in the lounge chair in front of the telly!!!! Sounds like your body needed it though.

You are lucky your hubby even went near the washing machine this early in 2010! My hubby forgot where our laundry was somewhere back in early 2009!!! hehehehe!!!!

Have an awesome weekend Cath, hope you get some gorgeous sunshine at sometime!
