Catherine Conron! Here’s Catherine’s submission. Now, I am not saying I agree with it or disagree with it, but I think it’s great that Catherine has thought about it and found something that works for HER. This may be a really good way for some people to approach a maintenance phase, if they feel ‘deprived’ in any way, shape or form:
PLAN A TREAT EVERY SINGLE DAY….every night after dinner, no matter how full I feel, I treat myself to a Low Carb Chocolate Protein Bar and a green tea. I put the bar in the freezer for hours beforehand so the bar lasts for ages and it is my “dessert” that doesn’t do too much damage. The protein late at night helps stabilise the blood sugars overnight, the green tea gives a slight rise in metabolism (as well as antioxidants) and I feel like I’m being very wicked! sometimes the thought of my treat at night is the only thing that stops me from potential binges during the day.
Congratulations Catherine, please email me your postal address for your free tub of MRM Whey Pumped! All the entries were great, all fantastic words of wisdom and advice, and I hope that those reading got something out of them. Thanks girls.
Well I did a great leg sesh today, I don’t want to write it out because it’s in Jen’s next program. 42 mins of high intensity stuff, including some plyos, which I love. I procrastinated too long before missing my cardio session this morning but I did make up for it with that one I must say. I am in need of a bit of a massage though, I have been a bit slack with my stretching and my medial hamstring, glute and groin is starting to play up again.
Tomorrow I’m off to visit hubby in Swan Hill. He’s bored and needs some company Don’t blame him, not the most exciting place to be for 2 weeks I wouldn’t think. I will be there for a few days and so will be visiting the gym of course.
Poor Rexy, he’s an indoor cat but goes out in the courtyard when I let him out. Usually for about 10 mins max and he’s had enough. Today he has his eye on a lizard or something and so was quite happy to stay longer. I did tell him to come in or he would get left out there – but he didn’t listen. Of course I forgot about him when I went upstairs and the poor bugger must have been out there nearly an hour and a half! He was rather distressed when I went downstairs - sitting at the door, feeling very forgotten.
I had the longest coughing attack in the world today. I thought I may have had to go to emergency, I just couldn’t stop and it was getting rather hard to breathe. My eyes were watering and I almost threw up!
Kristin sent me this lovely message this morning – I am sooooooooooo proud of what she has achieved and how determined and driven she is. A great example for all those budding fitness/figure enthusiasts out there!
“You rock and I really could not have done this at all without you…you have been a pillar of strength for me, a wealth of knowledge and you have helped me get to this point and I know you will help me go further. Seriously brings a tear to my eye thinking about how much help you have given me, I really would be lost without you so I am so grateful for everything you have done thus far, I really am, I wish I could give you a big hug right now to say thanks XOXOXO”
So we both had a big sook after that. How nice is that? I hope that doesn’t embarrass you too much Kristin, but I am so chuffed you said all that nice stuff
On that note, I think I shall go and take a shower and then I have to go and do a couple of jobs in town. Have a wonderful weekend people.
