Kristin, thank you for your kind words on your blog – it has been a pleasure to help and guide you and offer my experience when able. You have been a wonderful ‘student’ and I am so impressed with your desire and committment. You have come a long, long way and I applaud you for everything you have accomplished. I know you aren’t finished, by a long shot. Enjoy today, no matter what happens now, you MADE IT!!
My sister called me from Adelaide last night to say my nephew won his state title in boxing and will be representing Australia in Canberra in December. They were all pretty happy.
Just helped cook up a big chow mein dish – portioned it all out for Damien to take to work with him for lunches. Not enough left for me, bugger. Maybe I will steal one for dinner tonight, though I still have pre cooked salmon and chicken I need to eat.
I did a PB yesterday! Been some time since I’ve trained hard enough for that! My current fave exercise being DB Snatches, thought I would try the 20kg dumbbell, not expecting to actually be able to lift it. But, I did, and quite well, for 5 reps! When you consider 12.5kg is about my max for reps without a spot (for db presses), lifting an extra 7.25kg with one shoulder is not bad. Surely my shoulders will have to grow some more with that :) Lifting that sort of weight with a db press would be impossible, which is why I love this exercise. Plus it gets my heart rate soaring, and I feel buggered after just 3 sets.
Something I’ve realised lately is that I cannot bring myself to have a post workout shake. I used to LOVE my PWO shake, but I can’t stomach it of late so have been having MRM Low Carb protein mixed to a smooth paste, some raspberries, topped with natural yoghurt and a handful of bran cereal.
Have been asked by Good Health magazine to contribute an article on Sand Training for their January edition, so have been working on that today, as well as chatting to Marcella (a client) on Skype.
It’s hair week this week, which always manages to make me feel better (after the 3.5 painstaking hours it actually takes). Time I booked in to see my chiro too, I am starting to have more trouble with my hamstring again.
My email inbox is chockas again, I just have to go through and file stuff. Filing is rather time consuming.
Oh something I wanted to ask previous clients who had some great results that are not yet featured on our Success Story page, if you would like to submit your photos and story, I have a little giveaway for you. Please email me to enquire re the format and what is needed.
I have noticed a lot of procrastination going on lately. Getting lots of enquiries, everyone keen to start yesterday, and then I never hear from them again! People, you need to bite the bullet and make a start! Don’t wait for things to be perfect, the planets to align, and all that stuff. Make a committment and go after it with everything you have!
On that note, am packing up and enjoying the rest of my Sunday. Hope you all had a good one.
