As you can see, we have some outstanding performances in the transformation department! And more to come!
Still trying to sort out PHAT Camp details for the end of April – I won’t be participating due to being mid comp prep, but, I still want to go to meet up with my friends and clients, and help Kimmy out with her posing. Perhaps I will just do a 2 day trip rather than a 4 day one.
Just waiting for hubby to get back from a meeting and then we are off to see Jarhead at the movies. I haven’t been to the movies for so long…just got sms to meet him there so best get moving. I have to drop into the video store to pick up some dvd’s that I inadvertently dropped back to the wrong place…whoops!!
Training going well, did shoulders and tris yesterday. Wrists aren’t happy though, with the heavier weights they are struggling. Felt like one was going to snap off doing DB Overhead Tri Extensions.
4 weeks to go…
Oh bugger, forgot I need to eat before I go!! So not hungry. Ok, hoping everyone has had a great start to the week!
As my news and announcements, and Newsletter is currently undergoing maintenance, I have decided to put up the Ideal Bodies Online New You finalists in my blog. Over the next week I will post all the finalists, and then make a decision as to who the Winner and Runner Up will be, soon after that. It’s going to be difficult!!
Unfortunately, due to lack of numbers, the International NEW YOU competition will carry forward to this current year.
All these ladies have done magnificently, congratulations, you are all champions!
Found some old pics of my kitty, that is of course when we first got him about 5 years ago, when he was a tiny little baby, and now, as you can see, he’s a very large puddy cat – he doesn’t normally sit up on the counter, we just caught him being very bad.

Yes, I can feel them! Very sore already, even just before bed they were starting to tighten up and that was only 12 hours post workout. I have always taken a long time to recover from leg workouts – I usually go 5 days before all soreness is gone. Hamstrings can go longer, if I am doing stiff leg deadlifts – they really hammer me. Never used to get that sore in the quads, but thanks to ‘coach’ teaching me how to squat properly, I now do, every workout. So, I was a bit like a cripple getting out of bed this morning! I am sure it will get worse over the next 24 hours. Love it
Struggling with cardio – I don’t mind doing cardio when it has a real purpose – ie when I am in cutting mode – but for now, the only purpose it is serving is to keep my body fat down as much as possible, while eating all this food. So, it’s hard to get motivated for that reason. ie I am putting on a little fat anyway because it’s necessary to build muscle, so what difference is a 30min cardio session make However – of course I will do it!
I better go shower and get ready! Have one program to do this arvo, then answer some personal emails, and that is about it for work.
Pic today is part of the line up from 2004 Oz Titles where I placed 2nd (me in green). Thanks to Sam for sending me this pic! Been having a bit of a chat with Sam, lady in white, who won the class. She is lovely. Check out her site at www.samanthadm.com
After leg training. First session in 2 weeks, so I had to drop back on the smith lunges and lying curls, but I did manage the same or a little more on leg press. I love weekends at the gym – it’s really quiet, almost the whole gym to myself. Just downing my Myoplex Lite, and then will have the remainder of my oats. I tried eating the whole cup before training one other time, and it affected my workout, made me feel ill. It feels good to be back in the gym and moving my muscles! It never ceases to amaze me how quickly and easily you become unconditioned.
I have a bit of work to do today, finished one program, and 3 more to write. Still waiting for my site to be finished.
Have a great day everyone!
