Kyah’s 2nd birthday
This time 2 years ago, I was lying in the hospital bed, completely and utterly exhausted, waiting for my darling baby girl to finally poke her head out into the big wide world. After 19 hours of labour, a lot of pain and some very anxious moments – Kyah was indeed born.
So it was my (not so) little girl’s birthday party this weekend.
There’s nothing like a child growing up to make you stop and think how quickly time passes by.
We now have a house full of new toys that will keep her amused for weeks! She just loves to sit and read, build blocks or play with cars or trains (she’s not much of a doll person at this stage).
The weather was perfect for her party out at nana’s house and we all overindulged in some yummy home cooked food and Dora the Explorer birthday cake. Let’s just say I have some calories to burn off (lucky it’s leg day today!) and I’ll definitely be able to put Shaun Hadsall’s 4 Cycle Solution depletion cycle to the test this week!
We are actually selling our beautiful house – and moving from the town I was born and raised in. Which I must say is a little bit sad, but at the same time quite exciting.
I’ll be sad to move from my mum and family, and my awesome friends, but looking forward to new adventures in Adelaide.
At the moment we are going through inspections every weekend which is quite painful but after 2 we now have a good routine going and get the house looking spotless quite easily now.
So today to make up for yesterday’s diet indiscretions I’ve dropped carbs from my diet, all except one meal which I will consume after my workout. I’m training legs today as I mentioned, and to burn a few extra calories I’m going to walk to the gym and back.
My leg (and abs) session will go something along these lines:
BB Squat 12, 12, 12, 10, 8, 6, 4, 2 (finding the weight I can do 12 reps with, the last few being a struggle – then adding weight and reducing reps for each set thereafter)
Single Leg Split Squat 3 x 10
Box Jump 3 x 10
Walking Overhead Lunge 3 x 10
Hanging knee ups 3 x AMAP
Prone abs on TRX 3 x AMAP (actually I’m not really sure of the name of this exercise. In a prone position, you stick your feet in the TRX handles, hands holding you up in a plank position – then bring one knee out to the side and back, followed by the other one)
I focus on glutes and hamstrings in a session later in the week, that’s why you don’t see any of that here.
Give this workout a try – you might need a spotter on the squats if you are really going to give it everything.
Have a great week everyone.
