Hi AJ, no I haven’t seen that one but must check it out – yes, my sponsor, Jason Woodforth from MRM, introduced me to them and he too made it look extraordinarily easy.
Well we have been booking airfares like they are going out of fashion. We are off to Melbourne, not this week but next, for Damien’s operation. I’m his ‘escort’ We fly down on the Tuesday, he has surgery on Wednesday and we plan to fly back on the Friday. Now they are going through his nose they don’t expect him to have to stay in hospital for so long. They have booked us some accommodation, which is good because there wasn’t much available on the Thursday, being Grand Prix weekend. Funny, I will be almost down there for PHAT Camp but not quite. So, the credit cards are taking a bit of a beating of late with the medical stuff. Currently waiting on over $1200 of rebates on previous trips.
I received all my training and diet info from Sandy last week and today finally sorted it out and wrote up some schedules etc. I have higher and lower carb days, and am also allowed a glass of red every night if I want. I have one day off each week. Training 5 x week and doing 100 mins of cardio, all low/moderate intensity. I am starting a new supplement schedule as soon as I get my new supps from Michelle. Will be adding those to my current regime which is based on glutamine, BCAA’s, EFA’s and the regular vitamins (B, C, E).
Got my iron tests back the other day and still have elevated levels of a couple of things which I am unsure as to why, so have to speak to doctor. I’m not on iron tabs and haven’t been since November, but these are still elevated. It says can be caused by ‘inflammation’ or ‘increased iron stores’.
We are going out for dinner tonight – were going to go last night but Damien wasn’t feeling too well, so making up for it tonight. Discussing some goals and various business things for the next 12 months.
My injury is really starting to P*SS me off!! Now I have a very tight, and rather sore lower back. It aches when I sit. I did 40 mins of cardio with Jode on Sat morning and it just exacerbates the problem. Jode stayed out for an hour but I had to walk home as my injury was playing up. I have legs tomorrow so not sure how I will go, even though my program is written with my injury in mind. Will do my best. My legs are feeling decidely soft due to not having a hard session since before Christmas!!
Ok, nearly time to get ready to go out. Did a big day of work today as I have the New You Challenge winners to announce early in the week, as well as tidying up my inbox which I still haven’t finished.
