Time flies when you’re having fun! Well, I’ve had my head down and bum up writing my submission for the Telstra Business Women’s Awards. It’s been quite time consuming, but has definitely been an interesting exercise. I’m almost finished, just have to tidy up some documents tomorrow and give it the once over before sending.
Today’s pic is of my girl Kristin and I on the Gold Coast very recently. She’s my girl because I don’t know what I would do without her!
Club 100 has been packing the clients in, what a great competition it is. I wish I could enter The good news too is that it has been extended from August 7 to August 18 – so you have a little more time to get organised to enter!
I just had the most divine dinner – and oh so simple! Call me a cheapskate, but I never buy fish at $40 kilo. That’s just way over the top in my book. But today they had some Orange Roughey reduced to clear at half price so I snapped it up because I have not had fresh fish for ages (apart from salmon). Another reason I don’t buy fish here is because it’s usually pretty crap – we don’t get Orange Roughey very often. I just lightly dusted it in flour, and pan fried it in a little olive oil. It was just awesome. I wish I had bought the rest of what they had! Oh well next time.
My training has been going great – I’m so sore – new program will do it every time. I hadn’t trained legs for 2 weeks and OMG, yesterday it hurt to move. Quads were sore to touch! Hammies always get sore but quads take a bit.
My workout was:
BB Squat 15, 12, 10, 8, 10, 15
Stiff Leg Deadlift 4 x 10
Lumberjack squat 4 x 8, supersetted with
Knee extension 4 x 12
Hamstring Curls 4 x 8
Doesn’t seem anything out of the ordinary I know, just goes to show how soft I’ve become I hadn’t back squated in a while.
Day after (yesterday) I trained back and started with bodyweight chin ups.
11, 8, 7, 6 reps – on the 2nd last set I felt something not quite right in my shoulder, and sure enough, now it hurts to turn my head. My neck and upper back are really sore and I have a bit of a headache going on. Trying to hold off going to the chiro, since I just went the other day! It should have settled down by tomorrow I think. Will put some Ice Gel on in a minute, before I hit the sack.
After those I supersetted Lat Pulls and seated rows, 4 x 10 each.
Then BB Bent Rows 4 x 10. Followed with abs. No training tomorrow, just cardio. I might even do a step class perhaps.
I’ve approved the design of my new site – it looks great! I can’t wait to get that up and running, the guys are doing a super job with it, very impressed.
Something else I’m looking forward to receiving tomorrow is a draft of some advertising by the Almond Board of Australia, featuring Liz Bickerton and Ideal Bodies Online! I’m so excited by this partnership and can’t wait to see what they come up with. I will talk more about our involvement with them at a later date, but now, it’s time for bed!
